    Enigma special tricks?

    Decided to give a go on Enigma after I helped them back in 2006.
    Any special tricks under BOINC that I should be aware?

    Thank you in advance,

    Carlos

    Not that I'm aware of. Just crunch it. It should be good right out of the box unless you are trying it on android. Then it's as a big a pain as most projects.

    Why don't we have a feed under projects or software linking the different opti apps? I seem to recall there use to be but I can't find it. I see DENIS is coming up in a challenge and I have to set up a few. With lunatics, it's a no brainer. But it would be so nice to see a list of current opti apps with links that are known to work as well as a hardware limitations. (cpus and what not that it will work on) I know my Lynnfield is on the ass end of not working a few of them.

    Look here for the opti for Enigma

    http://www.enigmaathome.net/forum_th...tyle=6&start=0

    As for why we don't have them in a thread of their own? Probably trying to keep them for our team only, which is kinda ridiculous because they are available with a Google search. DrPop also has the all on a team dl site, but I can never remember the password.

    I see no reason not to post them at this point.

    I think I added this new opti app to my BOINC from here:

    http://www.enigmaathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=636

    First attempt I messed everything but now I think I got it. I attach the files I edited and replaced on the project folder.

    c2d.zip

    It's running but I don't have how to benchmark it as I started today running Enigma.

    You might try looking at the top computers on Enigma. If you find one similar to yours, not running anonymous platform, it should give some benchmark to go by.

    Hope am I not wrong but on my sandy bridge machine the application is 27% faster and 37.5% faster on my ivy bridge. Compared old wus I run a few hours ago.

    You are very likely correct. As I recall, there was a substantial decrease in run time with the optimized application. Enjoy!
