I was looking at the app_info.xml file generated by the Lunatics install and it seems to me I remember the Cuda data all being processed by the "SOG" application.

If so, would it be possible to use the same technique to have the stock seti SOG app process all the Cuda32/42/50 data files?

The reason I am asking is Cuda42/50 are taking 2-3 times longer to process what is apparently the same data as the SOG task. So could someone confirm that I am not wasting my time if I try to hack together an "app_info.xml" file that points the Cuda data flies at the SOG app?

Thanks,
Tom

Of course, as "data files" are not different.
There is no such thing as "Cuda32/42/50 data files"

That is contradiction - using app_info.xml disables getting any apps from the project server. (so the config is no more stock)

If you mean to use the "stock seti SOG app" (the .exe/.dll/.cl files themselves) under Anonymous platform instead of the .exe/.dll/.cl files included in Lunatics' Installer:
- save/copy the .exe/.dll/.cl files of the "stock seti SOG app"
- install Lunatics
- copy back the .exe/.dll/.cl files of the "stock seti SOG app" to the SETI@home directory
- edit app_info.xml - global replace the filenames (.exe/.dll/.cl) from the "Lunatics names" to the "stock seti SOG app" names
You may also edit <version_num> of OpenCL sections to match the stock (to not lose tasks)
