Engine logos are a fun feature in computer chess software. Maybe the Rybka GUI should have the capability to display such logos. It would be nice if it could use gif, jpg and bmp. Typical sizes (which are more or less standard I think) are:

100*50 pixel
125*70 pixel

AFAIK there isn't an official Rybka engine logo (yet) but the fish pic from the official site is well known. I transformed it into a logo gif:

I think that 130x65 is the standard.

Here are my Rybka Logos:

I am not sure.. maybe 130*65 can be a size problem in some layouts if the screen resolution is very small. Although, I found that I have Toga logos which are 130*70 and it fits into Fritz with 1024*768. - I think Arena resizes logos to certain dimensions (I'm not sure at the moment).

Are you begging Harvey to get involved in the Rybka logos business?! :-)

The logo is from a picture that my brother owns. It's painted by the german artist "Oswin" (from Berlin, he died some time ago). It's ok that we use it for our website (my mother has contact to the family of Oswin), but if we would use it commercially, we would have to pay some money to the family of Oswin.

Anyway, the current situation that everyone could use the picture he likes for Rybka, has also some advantages :)

It will be great if we come up with a new 'official' 3.0 logo. Current logo is already cool, but i feel we just need a fresh new look for 3.0, Any logo experts from Rybka team?
