I would guess that once PTS mining comes to an end, many will switch over to your pool.

process of mine bts is use computer/mining machine mine other altcoin ,can exchange it to bts . so compare with mining other altcoin directly , there is no advantage to mine bts .
if you can run a delegate , use pay from deletae to allowance mine of BTS to allowance miner of BTS.
let income of mining BTS higher than mining other altcoin

oK messed around some more, ended up downloading the badman modified version and tried again on x11. It is now working...Thanx!!!


I wonder why it stopped working after I set the command variables. I dont get why that would have happened.

ah well. Its working :)



EDIT: scrypt mining is faster on AMD GPUs isnt it? Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I can only mine with x11 and not scrypt?

the x11 command workd!


.... then i fucked it up! I tried adding

Quote
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

and then the -4 error came back.

So then I deleted them, saved the .bat and it still will not work


How do I reset environment variables?


Thank you so much for this help, nethyb

Have a go at using the latest version of sgminer mentioned earlier in this thread...

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=6236.msg138628#msg138628

And if you still have no luck, you can try mining X11 on the pool, instead of Scyrpt.

Use this command line to test if you using the suggested version of sgminar with X11 on the pool

Code: [Select]
sgminer.exe --kernel darkcoin-mod -o stratum+tcp://btsx.minebitshares.com:5555 -u YOUR_BTSX_ACCOUNT_KEY -p ANYTHING_YOU_LIKE --no-submit-stale

What drivers are you using?  Have you installed the OpenCL SDK?

http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/

yes I do. Like I said, it mines litecoins and protoshares just fine....









im getting this...

You command line looks good, and I've just ran it on my rig to check - worked OK... Couple of ideas..

Do you have any settings in sgminer.conf?

Have you set the following in your command prompt / environment variables... I think I remember seeing this in relation to low memory issues in the past...

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

i.e. in startbtsxminining.bat have...

Code: [Select]
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
C:\pathtosgminer\sgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://btsx.minebitshares.com:4444 -u BTSX6LntkCfDLvwPrr13az5kYmivVYnJrSA7pmNF9kxNFFjeMqDgE7 -p ANYTHING_YOU_LIKE --no-submit-stale

remember to change pathtosgminer to suit your environment...



Thank you for the suggestion. I did try this and get the exact same error (the path to sgminer is correct, still getting error -4)

Thank you for all the suggestions.

Are there instructions for other miners like cgminer or bfg miner? I really really really want to mine, but without it working I will have to continue to mine litecoins :(

i am using this command:
sgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://btsx.minebitshares.com:4444 -u BTSX6LntkCfDLvwPrr13az5kYmivVYnJrSA7pmNF9kxNFFjeMqDgE7 -p ANYTHING_YOU_LIKE --no-submit-stale


with win7 pro x64 with an amd 7870


It mines protoshares and/or litecoins just fine..

what am i doing wrong?

Any incentives to miners using this pool? If none, why not give extra coins like % from Delegate profit, just for marketing gimmick.
Most miners do not want to change pool if there is no extra benefits for them.

Just my 2 cents

I disapprove of delegate pay kickbacks.  Low fees and convenience are enough to attract many miners, and competent pool management is an opportunity to earn respect and votes.  I expect more transparency on pool fees and exchange practices once it's more established, but in beta I have no problem at all with how it is.

Nice job again on the pool, now we just need some more miners!
