Hello. I am a chess engine collector. Do you know if I can buy Rybka 3 anywhere ? I don't have Rybka 3, Rybka 4 or Rybka 4.1 in my big collection although i just found out i can buy Rybka 4.1 at rybkachess.com. But i can't find Rybka 4 and Rybka 3 anywhere. :)

I am also looking for Houdini 2.0 , 3, 4 and 5 :)

it would be very nice if someone could help me :)

Do you collect just the engine exe files themselves or do you collect their entire boxes and such?

mainly the exe-files and readme files. i install them in the Arena GUI.

I'm going to be risk being banned and whatnot by advocating piracy for these occations.

If it is an engine that can't be bought anywhere, then it counts as Abandonware, and it is morally right to look for a pirate copy and download it. Ethics are another thing, but who is getting hurt.

Furthermore, it can be argued that if you get the money to the publishers in some other way, it's the same as if you bought it, so it could be ethical to download Rybka 3 illegally and buy Fritz 16 in compensation (pretend what you bought was Rybka 3 - some pirates that do this would go to the limits of not opening or downloading the Fritz 16 package, as they only paid for what they pirated.)

Piracy Should Always Be An Option.
