Paul, the dll file goes in the SETI at Home folder. It doesn't need to be mentioned in the app_info.

</copy> flag? I don't see it. Are you talking to me? Only OpenCL reference I see is in the name.

Okay, changed mine too and left it at 601. Also noticed that the old 560 was sse3 and the 1316 is sse2. Changed that also. Left everything else (unroll, ffa, ect) the same as I had it. Suspended a bunch of 603s to let a 601 start. Seemed to be running okay so I opened up the 603s again. It will be awhile before it restarts the 601 but it should be alright. I also changed my instances per to 2 and all my counts back to .5. My little GTS 450 should be able to handle it.

Thanks Arkayn.

Mine now looks like this

Mike,
I don't know if it will hurt anything but I noticed one little problem with your NV app_info. You have this line... <name>AP6_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV_r1316.exe<app> It starts out as <name> and ends as <app> That should be changed to </name> shouldn't it?

Raistmer, I'm still using the old 560. Would it be okay to just change the name over to 1316 and leave the version number at 601 rather than 604 in the app_info? Is it necessary to ask for 604s?

Edit: to Mike, that mistake was made in your NV app_info example, I see now you have left the version name as 601 in your example for both. Is this working for you?

Make sure you get all of them. If you are running a 32 bit system there will be three, if you are running a 64 bit system then there are six you have to change.

My mistake, I thought you were comparing two work units of about the same time rather than the amount of credit you got in that amount of time. Lunatics does make a tremendous difference doesn't it? One other thing you should note though is that it takes about a month for RAC to settle in so you might see some strange numbers to begin with. Welcome to the big time! :)

Ex, I wouldn't look for that kind of credit change per work unit. There are too many variables such as the amount of blanking, angle range, credit new (which is a pain), and also your wingman and the amount of credit he claims. The main thing to look for with the opt-apps is the completion times compared to what you were doing before on work with the same angle ranges. It's a pretty good bet you will find you are getting at least half again or close to twice the speed you were before.

The server tries to fill the most efficient first which would be your GPU. Once filled it will then start asking for CPU work. You can go into your Account page, Seti@Home preferences and check the don't use GPU. This won't hurt any work you already have but then it will just ask for CPU work. Just remember to go back in and uncheck it when you get enough CPU stuff.

Banned By Lunatic & don't know why or how to get removed.

Somehow I am banned for reasons unknown. I have always been polite, have done no recruiting anywhere. Tried to contact but no luck.



It wasn't anything you did, they had a problem with spammers mostly but also a couple of others that would pass out programs that were still in the test phase to non members so they blocked everyone that had not posted over there for a long time. Those that wanted back in had to ask here for one of the admins from Lunatics to re-add them.

I thought that only in Russia failed power.



No, we all get it, it was just inwented in Russia according to Ensign Chekov. :)

Max, I see you are running the new 7.0.25 BOINC. Did you swap around your keep enough work for......days and keep enough for .....extra days? I know I'm saying it wrong but I hope you get the idea. They've changed the way BOINC asks for more work.

I just managed to report 181 tasks and actually got 1 (one) downloaded in return. That's okay though, I'm just happy things are moving.
