No offence, but why post it with a newbie account...

with 0 tax ...... so weired


Perhaps after bigger fish.  Running a binary file from an unknown source is probably the most dangerous thing you can do.  At the very least I'd only run this binary on a computer with a throw-away Windows install connected to a completely separate network from my other machines and then only if I felt this binary would return a substantial profit vs other avenues.

If you're getting something for free you'd otherwise need to pay for you're not the customer you're the product.

I gotta agree with this.

Screw reverse-engineering this. I am not going to try to patch it to mine to some other address--I had thought of establishing a donation address that way, to fund developing an open-source Windows compile (for example by mining five percent of the time to the donation address), but I'm not going to bother. And I am not going to run this executable.

If someone very expert with reverse-engineering/computer forensics wants to make sure this executable does nothing malicious, and/or patch it to mine to a donation address for the purpose I mention, I'd welcome that.

abc123, brother (or sister), I'm all for you taking a tax, but I hope you'll open up your source code reasonably soon enough. For all I know, you've learned from the compile errors which I and others posted in this thread:

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2114.0

-- and now you alone are taking a "tax" for it. It's not even clear how this tax is levied. (Or, for that matter, whether it installs a secret back-door that harvests wallet.dat files and sends them to you.) Does the miner stop mining at the address given on the command line for half an hour per day, and switch to mine to your address?

Ha! Guess what? I'm gonna bitch-slap you. I'll find the address you hard-coded (wherever its hiding in the binary), paste in my own address, and post it with my SOB story, begging for folks to post a wee bit 'o pittance for my efforts to me -- by mining with it.

Yeah, baby! If you can't beat the closed-source grubbers, join 'em . . .

System Requirement: Main Memory >=2GB, Video memory >=1.5GB. Less memory may work, this is to be tested. NVDIA cards that support at least SM 3.0 is required, view this page to find whether a NVDIA cards support it or not:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA

I see you found which constants to tune to get a little more speed at the use of a little more memory. :-)

If anyone running Linux wants to try to match his performance numbers, change the constant:

#define NUM_COUNTBITS_POWER 31

in gpuhash.cu from 31 to 32.  You'll have to have about 1.2GB of memory on your GPU, but if you have it, you'll get a better c/m rate that should match what the above author posted.  I plan a future release that auto-selects this a bit more carefully.

n.b.  It's perfectly within the license of the code I released to re-brand and add your own donation to it, but I just want to be clear to the forum that these donations aren't going to me.  Obviously, however, it's also a pain to get these things working on Windows.

nice work, 600 c/m on a gtx 660


btw, it failed on another gtx 560 with 1gig of ram, but that's probably expected.

win7 x64 get error: cudaGetDeviceCount failed!

VGA: GTX 760 with 2GB mem, and 2.56 GB system mem free.

errrrr, only win32 can run this?
