The naming format is explained at the help file; this 99%-1-576 means 99%+ coverage achieved, with 1 uncovered combination left at 576 blocks.
For a 4if6 construction, in order to evaluate the coverage (or uncovered combinations) we essentially test combinations of 6 numbers x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6 (all the drawn posibilities), if they have at least 4 correct numbers in any of the blocks of the covering - in that case of L= 30, this 6-number block must be covered by at least 30 12-number blocks of the covering (it is covered by a block if any 4 numbers of it exist in that covering block). So, 1 uncovered combination means there is one 6-number block that isn't covered by at least 30 blocks (might be 29, 28 or even 0). Any 4-number combination does not need to be covered at least L times to offer the guarantee, instead any 6-number combination must be covered L times.

The problem in replying late at night is it can be easy to write something wrong. In the previous post I said every 4-number combination will be covered at least 31 times. This is only true in t=m but in t<m this is not true. The correct definition and what happens is at the above paragraph.

if you mean all the 4-number combinations to be covered at least once in a pick 6 game, then a 4if4 will do it.
Also did you need 578 blocks for a 36,12,4,6,L=30 covering? This is what you got by WG? If so, try increasing the left slider (expansion) bias to 800 and the right slider (tension) to 500 and let it improve this further. I have made this 36,12,4,6,L=30 in about 550 blocks in just a few minutes and seems it can go quite lower than that. Use this setting instead of the default to reduce further the blocks needed. Generally, the higher 1-block indicator is, the higher the initial bias should be. At later optimization stages (as per the suggestion at the engine tutorial) we reduce these.

I can't tell if it can make it to 512 blocks but it is already around 530+ blocks. I try to reduce this even further. Feel free to send me your file along your findings.

cheers

As soon as the new GAT version is out I'll work on WG for this feature along some other enhancements.
