To create a new fully analyzed Polyglot book from a PGN, select Make Analyzed Book, choose test.pgn and when the (above) selection screen appears press the "s" key. The analysis with Stockfish 12 will start and the end result is the test.bin book. All fully automatic. That's it.
For existing Polyglot Books we follow the same procedure but in 3 steps.
1. Prepare Analysis - From the (small) test.pgn (only 10 games) and from each found position in the book test.bin an EPD is created and collected in test.epd to be used in the next function. Actions - select the PGN and BOOK.
2. Analyze - Select the just created test.epd and on the selection screen (see picture above) press the "s" key, the analysis will start with the default settings. When all 4 threads are finished press a key and the analysis of the 4 threads are merged.
3. Import Analysis - will import the results into the test.bin book.
