I presently have Deep Ryb3 and i'm using the fritz interface through Shredder11.
I have just preordered Deep Ryb4.I read that it comes with the fritz 12 interface.Must I use this Fritz12 interface in order for Deep Ryb4 to operate correctly,or can I just somehow load it into my older fritz interface?Is it best to simply delete my older shredder/fritz interface or what?

You should have ordered the UCI only engine and used it on your old interface. If it's too late, it doesn't make much of a difference in what interface you use it with (the Fritz 12 interface will have the same features of the Deep Rybka 3 interface you're not using, and some useless gimmicks.)

Thanks vytron.I haven't seen the Ryb4 multiprocessor UCI only engine,atleast where I just purchased which was Wholesale Chess (in America).I do not wish to download Ryb4 off the internet or order from anywhere outside the USA.I suppose i can just return the unopened item as they say in their return policy.
So they have a Ryb4 UCI only engine for multiprocessors then?,without the fritz 12 interface?And this can be ordered from a chess site in America?

I would recommend ordering Rybka 4 UCI from Rybka Chess.  The download process from their site is easy and painless.  And QUICK!

IT is a few dollars cheaper at ChessOk but the their track record is inconsistent.

note: always remember to create a backup when purchasing from rybkachess.com!

I ordered from the ChessOK site.  No problems at all (except they didn't take Discover of American Express so I had to use PayPal).  Got my link immediately.

Well,what a going on if i'm in a hurry to buy something then I lose my rational thinking!
I purchased online the incorrect Deep Ryb4 for me...with the fritz 12 interface,from Wholesale chess for $119.00.
Then after thinking about it and hearing from Vytron,I called Wholesale chess to cancel the backordered item,but they won't be in till 8am or so
Tues..By that time the order probably went through anyway.But wanting what I want,I placed another order this time for the Deep R-4 UCI only from Chess OK for cheaper.This will be best(and cheaper)for my fritz 10 setup.
Now,if i can't get my money back for some reason from wholesale chess,i'd be willing to sell the Deep Ryb4 with Fritz 12 interface for say $80.00 Insured.With the original plastic wrap on,unopened.I pay shipping to you or deliver it within 100 miles of NE Pa.
Any takers or bidders?

Did you know that Deep Rybka 4 with the Fritz 12 interface does include Rybka 4 uci?
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2010-05-30 22:11
Yes, but he doesn't want the interface as he already has one.
Parent - - By Mark (****) [us] Date 2010-05-30 22:32
Well, I was thinking that if he sells off Rybka with the Fritz 12 interface for $80 he's losing $40 anyway.  Might as well keep it and just use Rybka uci (rather than selling it for $80 and buying Rybka uci for $80).

Oh yeah...

On the other hand, the benefit of doing it his way is that someone gets a good deal on R4 with the Fritz interface!

ahhhh..but I do not need 2  RYB 4's!So I consider one of them useless.Then I might as well get a good portion of my money back and just consider it a judgement loss,like putting the chip on the wrong color on the roulette table!
I can always use the extra money to purchase the new opening book for Ryb4.I am still using the rybII ctg. in my Deep Ryb3.Quite outdated I understand!
Well,all of this is up in the air anyway...i'll know by next Tues.
Contact me by Wed.and I may still be selling it!

You should post in talkchess.com and other forums. You could even get a better price

I thought the Deep Rybka 4 Chessbase version comes with Jiri's Opening book with it. Can someone verify this?
The book to download is about $25.00. So, if you purchase the UCI engine alone for USD $90.00, you will need to spend another USD $25.00 for the Opening Book. Which brings up the cost to USD $115.00. You said you paid USD $119.00 from chess wholesale. So I still don't see what you will gain by selling the DVD version of Deep Rybka 4 at a lower cost. You won't get the Jiri's Opening Book from ChessOK because that is a separate product not included with the DVD version.

It doesn't.

I suspect you can send it back. If not, put it on ebay and post the links in a few forums. I suspect you'll get close to the price you paid.
