@ renatoe, slipnot

 

Hey, alright!  

 

I got a question though, did you follow the guide on the front page of this topic that I wrote, or did you just download the graphical client that mike39 mentioned?  Also, is the client version you downloaded 3.24?

 

The reason I ask is that you  guys (renatoe, Sl1pkn0t) said you had 1/400 so far.  The WUs with 400 frames are called Tinker and go very slow.  If you guys are using the 3.24 version, then I can tell you what you need to do to get much faster WUs called Gromacs.

hello fellow folders, it's been a while since i posted in this topic, ahh well, i'll to post more often from now on. anyway, this may sound like a stupid question, but is there any way to prevent getting tinker cores because it seems that almost every one i get is out of 400. it's starting to piss me off.  :dozing:

 

 

how can i get gromacs or at least prevent me getting tinkers EVERY SINGLE TIME?

Yes, there is a way!  And this goes in conjunction with what I'm telling renatoe and slipnot:

 

Step 1  Go to your startup folder, for example: C:\Documents and Settings\All users\Start menu\Programs\Startup

Step 2  Right-click on the folding@home shortcut and select the Shortcut tab.  

Step 3  In the target box add -advmethods to the end of the target path.  It should look similar to this :

"C:\Program Files\Folding@home\winFAH.exe" -advmethods

Step 4  Reboot your computer and you should get Gromacs core WUs most the time after your current WU finishes.

Step 5  If you start folding@home from any other shortcut, make sure you have -advmethods at the end of the target line in that shortcut, otherwise -advmethods won't be enabled and you'll keep getting Tinker core WUs.

 

EDIT:

I'd also reccomend using the 3.25 beta version, download here.  This beta version already has -advmethods enabled so you don't have to worry about enabling it.  It also has a few other optimizations that will boost the amount of points your computer can generate a week.

 

Instructions on how to set up the Windows console version are on the front page.

It uses less system resources.

It's more stable (the GUI client has a tendancy to make GTA3/VC keep minimizing).

I'm just wondering what is the greatest point WU there is? The biggest one I have ever folded was only like 54 points.. and I know there are much bigger ones. Too bad there is no way to get only the big ones  :whuh:

70 points. My slow 350MHz PII machines keep getting them. It takes nearly a month for them to do them.

Why does maj have only 50 posts?

Because he went back to his original account. I believe he made a topic about it somewhere. Remember, his old account was majestik.

You did baaaad. Good bye, and thanks for the spam!

it takes a little while but not that long! are you sure the wu didn't fail right before it was completed? thats happened to me a couple times.

btw: ok i got the console version for folding fun, but is there anyway to make the title box in my start bar go away? I want it running in the backround like the gui version was doing.

====================

Part 2 - Starting and Hiding the console window (stealth mode)

This part is neccessary for folding@home to automatically start when turning on your computer.  It's also neccessary to hide the console window unless you can stand having the consloe window minimized on your taskbar all the time.

 

Step 1 - Download a program called HideIt X here

Step 2 - Unzip the download and cut and paste the unzipped folder to the same folder as folding@home or anywhere you want.

Step 3 - In the folder there is a file called HideItX.exe  Right-click this file and select Create Shortcut.

Step 4 - Cut the new HideItX shortcut (right-click > cut)

Step 5 - Now go to the All Users Startup folder: My Computer > C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and paste the new shortcut.  This will start folding@home no matter who is on the computer.

Step 6 - Now right click on the shortcut and and select the Shortcut tab.  Find the Target: box and copy and paste the following line into the target box:  

"C:\Program Files\Folding@home\HideItX\HideItX.exe" -starthide c:\Program Files\Folding@Home\FAH3.25-Console-Beta.exe

 

NOTE: If you installed the client somewhere else, make sure you have the correct path to the FAH3.25-Console-beta.exe or it won't work.

Step 7 - Reboot your computer then go to your folding@home folder and open the file FAHlog.txt.  Scroll down to the bottom and you should see something like this near the bottom:

 

 

--- Opening Log file [June 20 09:29:29] # Windows Console Edition ##########################################################################################################                      Folding@home Client Version 3.25                      http://foldingathome.stanford.edu                    email:[email protected]################################################################################################################################[09:29:29] Configuring [email=Folding@home...]Folding@home...[/email]

 

 

If so, folding@home is up and running in stealth mode!  If not, retrace your steps and make sure you have the correct paths listed in the target box.

NOTE:  Do not use -advmethods with this beta version of folding@home as it is built into the beta version.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, ignore this.

 

====================
