EDIT: The bounty is finished, thanks to everyone's donations Phoenix support is now available to all. I still encourage new users to donate if the Phoenix support was helpful to you.
Hi all, due to popular demand I'm preparing a version of GUIMiner that uses Phoenix
as the back end. It supports all features of Phoenix including the phatk kernel
, which provides higher performance than poclbm on some video cards.
I've decided to try a bounty approach for a change, here's how it works:
- Anyone who donates 1 BTC or more (NOTE: was 2 BTC but the price of BTC spiked so I'm decreasing it) will be emailed a development version of the GUI with Phoenix & phatk support. This version is ready to use and has been running stable on my machine, but it might contain bugs I haven't found yet.
- Once total donations reach 20 BTC, I'll fix any issues that came up and then it will be released to everyone free of charge, just like the previous GUIMiner.
You can send the coins to:
and then PM me with your email address and I'll send you a link to the new GUI. If you'd prefer a unique address to send coins to, PM me requesting one and I'll send you a unique address.How to use:
Run GUIMiner as usual, then go File -> New other miner and navigate up one directory and pick phoenix.exe. Then enter your info as usual and start mining. For the Extra Flags you can enter any Phoenix flags such as VECTORS or -k phatk (see above screenshot) for an example, or see the Phoenix thread for a full list of flags.
