The new version of the miner will be released soon and will resolve the issues. EDIT: v0.1 is released

Very nice work !!!

2K cpm with r280X

but could you try to put it on Ypool or 1GH please :))

I would love to see this for 1GH, the paranoid side of me says no to Ypool until other pools level things out heh...

so far this seems to be running well, only encountered a problem when I hit a stale share after several hours, looks like the program froze, or maybe the screen stopped outputting, not really sure as I did the close window open new window fix... I should have captured the screen and checked with GPU-Z if things were still running...

1035 cpm on ASUS R9270-DC2OC-2GD5 (non-X version) estimating 100 watts used for the card it seems...

need help  :o :o

- with my i7 and R280x its faboulous 2K cpm  :D
- but on my I5 with ATI HD7950 dont work :(

it seems that your system has an intel opencl driver installed because it says there are two opencl platforms... perhaps that is the same problem other people encountered and you should try their workaround. that shouldn't be a bug of my miner if the workaround works.

UPDATE which catalyst version is installed on your system?
perhaps windows loads the intel opencl dynamic library instead of the AMD library. Maybe those libraries aren't compatible even for opencl 1.1 or 1.2.

its been running for several hours... but now I seem to be running into a new problem... when it comes time to mine for the author, it seems to do that just fine for the 35 seconds... but when it comes time to switch back to mining for the user, it seems to be having trouble trying to get back to working...

in picture one you can see its going back to mining for user for 30min... at first it seems to be working but then suddenly dies... and in picture two you can see the problem continues for quite some time and it was not improving, so I finally killed it, restarted it, and its working without an issue again... this is the same problem I ran into before... it seems to have an issue switching between the mining for author and mining for user again...

my gpu's seem to be working at 99% as normal, but you can see the shares per minute absolutely drop down to nothing... and this goes on for quite some time, I simply could only take so many pictures in scroll back heh...

same problem to me...

you cant let it run without having a look after it - it seems to be too "fresh"
the switch back from mining for the developer to mining for the user does not work properly

@Darkbane: This is really strange. the miner even recognizes a dead tcp connection ("watchdog timer triggered") and tries to reconnect but no block arrives from the server. after that a corrupted block is received. the sharetarged should be 03ffff....ffffbeafde4d. I guess this is related to Windows 8.1. Do you have access to Windows 7 (this works) or Windows 8?
EDIT other users with Win7 also report this problem. I take a look at it. The linux version works without problems for me.

Yeah the weird part is, clearly its worked many many times since I have run this for almost 8 hours, but several times its done this exact same thing... I mean I'm assuming its worked many times, I think it said every 30-60min it will mine for the author? so its worked 20-40 times but every so often randomly it just hangs... the weird part is its still pegging the video card at 99% even though its just trying to reconnect?

so Ubuntu is good? I've been thinking about taking a stab at it on a bootable usb drive, but I just don't know an ubuntu for dummies guide that really teaches me what things mean along the way, versus "type this"...

I understand this is v0.1 so I'm certain you've got pages of things you plan to do already heh... it's just impressive the performance gain over other miners with the same GPU... being able to leave it unattended for days would put it well beyond the others.

I updated the miner to version 0.1.1, which should fix with the "doing no work" bug in Windows.

@darkbane: the miner used a corrupted block with a wrong share target. therefore it is very likely that the miner will find zero shares in a reasonable time because it has a very difficult share target. it looked like as some buffers got corrupted. most likely windows missed some resources because i used many asynchronous events but v0.1.1 implements better code.

Okay got it up and humming along... saw the v0.1.1 in the header, I appreciate that!

I'll check back on it in a few hours and let it run overnight just to keep pressing it.
