Hello, I have recently downloaded Uly's recommendations for 6-man tablebases, and now I want to check they're all ok.

A bit of internet searching shows there was a program called Wilhelm that checked tablebase integrity, though all the links I found were to long dead Geocites sites.

Does anyone know where I can get the latest version, or another program that would test my tablebase integrity.

Many thanks,

Try using Total Commander and MD5 files. Look for chess site @ post
I think that most Nalimov generated TBs are the same files...

There is a simple but nice tool by Sune Fischer, author of Frenzee which does the md5-check for the Nalimov tablebases:

From the readme file:
"Md5Checker is a small utility for verification of the Nalimov endgame tables.

Place the Md5Checker.exe and the corresponding *.md5 file(s) in the same folder as the endgame tables you want to verify.
Run the exe and press the "verify" button in the dialog that appears."

Forgive me, but what are .md5 files?

Files with checksums, so you can validate the correctness of a file.

On my chess site, I post MD5 files for all of the torrents and I have a single MD5 for the whole 6 piece set as well.

Look on the download page for all the MD5 files
