SMP2 client folding A1 core
 
Am I the only one? My SMP2 rig is folding an A1 core... ouch 2000 ppd instead of 7000 :censored:

It's the first one I got since I installed the SMP2 client 10 days ago... am I the only one that's the case?

a3 suxored for me badly...dont remember about a1 :)

Sometimes you will get A1 units instead of A3 units. Just fold them and you'll probably get an A3 next time around. There will still be some A1 units floating around until Stanford switches completely to SMP2, which will take a little while. Remember that SMP2 is still in public testing mode.

I've had a few (maybe 2 or 3) low PPD WU's too since I installed the new client, not sure which core they were as I didn't bother to check...

I've been folding about 10-12 of those damn a1 cores for the last 4-5 days. Where are all the a2 and a3 gone ???? Lucky for me, I also fold with my GTX260 so it helps keeping my PPD over 9000

Are you sure you have the client set up properly? You need to be using the 6.29 SMP client with the -advmethods flag enabled, and you need to use your passkey to get the bonus points.

I'm using the VMWare client Folding Virtual Appliance I don't k now if he updated it to the new client.

Also, you get more points with a passkey ? I did not know that

You get bonus points if you meet these conditions:

1) You are folding an A3 workunit. To do this, you must be using the 6.29 client version and have the -advmethods option enabled. You cannot fold A3 units with notfred's Virtual Appliance since it uses an older client version. You'll have to install the Windows SMP client if you want to do that.

2) You are using your passkey.

3) You have folded and submitted at least 10 A2 and A3 workunits before the deadline and while using your passkey.

4) You submit the A3 workunit before the deadline.

I don't know why but the SMP version crashes on my computer. I'm running Windows 7 64 bits, I5 750, 4 GB ram. I get the message : Folding@home Core Shutdown: FILE_IO_ERROR

Are you sure you set it up properly? If you have UAC enabled, set the client to run as Administrator. Also, make sure you successfully ran the install.bat file first, and that you're running the client with the -smp flag.
