I'm running a quad core Dell computer that runs the Seti@Home V8 program just fine with the screen saver. But when running Astropulse work units the Boinc manager show graphics is blanked out and the screen saver just gives me a tech reading of what is running but no graphics. Am i missing a setting or possibly a graphics file for Astropulse?

As far as I'm aware the Astropulse application doesn't have the required software to produce graphics. Historically this is probably related to the very long run times and lack of CPU resources in the old days of SETI.

I found this link on Utube and assumed that Astropulse had graphics too.
