    Re: Get your MilkyWay Optimized Apps Here / Now Windows Apps NOT ALLOWED

    From the Front Page:

    Code Release and Optimized Windows Apps
    January 19, 2009
    A significant number of hosts using optimized windows apps are returning bogus results. We're recommending our users return to using the stock app (until updated, correct versions of these optimized apps are released), because starting tomorrow these optimized apps will NOT be granting any credit.
    I've released v11 of the source code, with compilation instructions that'll ensure that an optimized app will be granted credit in the future here. The new released code also has multiple test WUs to check the code against, so hopefully newer optimized versions will not return bogus results; they will also let us track what applications are and aren't working so we are able to debug our searches and let users know which applications are working.
    Unfortunately, the bogus windows apps are so prevalent that it's preventing us from implementing our dynamic WU checking; because the number of bad results is skewing our detection which would result in correct results being labeled as invalid. We also have no way to update these apps automatically, unlike our own stock app on the server. This is why we've had to take such a drastic measure (not granting credit to any older optimized apps) until this situation is resolved. Again, our users have until tomorrow to either revert to our stock app or upgrade to an application that uses the new compilation instructions and code, or risk not being granted any credit.


    Recompiled Linux 32/64 apps are OK

    Re: Get your MilkyWay Optimized Apps Here / Now Windows Apps NOT ALLOWED / Linux Apps OK

    Latest News:

    Update Pushback
    January 20, 2009
    I'm pushing the update time until sometime tomorrow, because we'd like to have one more update to the windwos application before making the swap. It will happen sometime tomorrow so I'd get your apps updated today.
    New Assimilator/Validator
    January 20, 2009
    The changes are in place for our new assimilator+validator, so this evening at 8pm EST we'll be making the change. The new assimilator+validator is stricter when it comes to checking for WU correctness. Workunits returned with impossible results will be marked invalid and not awarded credit. Additionally, as per the previous news post, non-stock applications not compiled with the latest instructions detailed here, will not be awarded credit. Please update your application to the stock app, or a verified recently compiled app to prevent any loss of credit. The new assimilator+validator contains changes which will allow us to automatically detect bad results, so when we have completed debugging this, credit will also not be awarded to applications which are not returning correct results.


    Don't get caught with your pant's down.

    Re: Get your MilkyWay Optimized Apps Here / Now approved Windows and Lunix app's

    Admittedly I am not the brightest bulb on the tree. I can only assume the reason my Milky Way results fall way short of most of you is that I am not using an optimized app.

    I downloaded the SSSE3 package and dropped it into the slots 2 folder but BOINC is still using the previous Milky Way version 19. I then actually deleted the Milky Way app and left it in the recycle bin but no change. I stopped BOINC and restarted thinking that might help but no such luck. BOINC is running using Milky Way 19rather than Astronomy 19 SSSE3.

    Do I need to delete the original file? I left it in the recycle bin just in case things went south. Do I need to reboot?

    BOINC version 6.4.7
    Wondows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit
    Intel QX6850

    I believe the problem is that you are copying it to the wrong folder. At least with the ATI Gpu version there are 3 files that have to be copied to the milkyway project folder. It should have a readme file that explains it. You need to shut down Boinc before coping the files though.

    I think there are 2 files that need to be copied into the folder that the stock app is in. The 19see3 and an app_info file. That is if your running a cpu version. And mines just in the milyway folder, not in a slot folder.

    Don't know about the gpu one, no ati card here, waiting for the cuda app to be released. They are testing it now i believe.

    I can only give you the short and sweet version, its screaming fast if you have a ATI 4800 series gpu.

    I am new to milkyway@home i first started crunching numbers on it sunday using the cpu app downloaded through boinc.
    Tuesday afternoon a had around 3500 credits.
    I switched to the app optimized for ATI gpu,s it is said to be around 11,000 times faster than the cpu apps.
    As i type this i am showing 210000 credits

    I've got 3 x 4850s and a 4890 running it. The 4850s are averaging about 50,000 credits a day when the project can keep up.
