Optional system requirements for creating the 8 piece endgame databases
Warning: creating the 8 piece databases involves the computation of 10.000.000.000.000 positions. This is only possible on computers with a lot of RAM memory, a lot of disk space and it will take months.

64 bit windows (vista/windows 7)
24 GB RAM (32 GB is better)
Minimal 2000 GB free diskspace (3000 GB=3TB recommended)

Hi Michel.

I have a request and a question for you. Please write how you can, why I still have a mistake when generating the 8 figure database. I attach a picture with an error. My equipment is Windows 10 64 bit, procesor- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, 64 gb ram.
