Well im writing a GUI, hopefully everyone will like it. It will only support poclbm for version 1, but eventually im going to add:

- Support for all major miners
- Support for all major pool & custom/solo
- Support for custom accounts and miner settings
- Custom fan controls
- Disabling miner for a certain period if temp get's too high (user configurable)
- JSON support and realtime pool updates




At the moment it's not much, but im hoping for a couple of donations to keep me enthusiastic about it Smiley

Anyone who donates >=0.5btc will get a beta version and anyone that donates >=1btc will get their name mentioned in the credits Smiley

Screenshots:

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

As long as you don't make it open source/post the code, I don't think anyone here will take the program seriously. Too many scams going on and people are just trying to be careful.

Yeah I am going to when it's finished Smiley It's written in C#, so it will probably only work on windows, unless I get enough donations to port it over to wine.

Garbage...

1) The gui looks aweful (IMO)...
2) Using the AREO glass extensively will make the program win 7 / vista only
3) AREO uses GPU power = bad thing when you want to get the highest possibly hashrate
4) where's the Edit/delete miner button?
5) Pools, how about adding support for people adding custom pools? say their own or a new one you might not have updated it to include the URL of?
6) Is this using WPF? because you kinda want to avoid that aswell because it uses gpu resources too.
7) have you actually looked into reading fanspeed, etc from c#? because without having looked into it i doubt it's easy as c# generally doesn't have much hardware level acess API's

That's about it for my thoghts, don't take it personally but rather as constructive critique Smiley

1. Thanks Smiley
2 & 3. Yes, I know it uses gpu resources, but it uses very minimal, and it detects if it's running on xp and changed the gui accordingly.
4. When you create a miner another tab gets added and the features are on the new tab.
5. Added to the list Smiley
6. No, it's windows forms.
7. It's actually quite easy using interops (from C/C++)

Not yet, maybe I will after I test the beta Tongue

edit - The ability to change the white background colour.
Oh, and the ability to read JSON API's so i don't have to use the windows sidebar gadget (i'm not sure how realistic this request is for a miner, but it would be an awesome feature)

I'm hoping this is going to end up as an AIO for newbies, and people who want charts/graphics/or are afraid of > prompts.

After everything's checked off the list, im going to add graphing functions, and support for the JSON extensions so you can get your current balance and total mh/s etc. Smiley

This looks good SomeoneWierd.. I have been looking for a simple gui miner like this, i'm not a fan of the python "guiminer".

Check out the Mono project, as long as you keep your codebase relatively platform independent your app should run on Windows, Mac and Linux no problems using Mono.

If you can eventually support Ufasoft CPU miner and the CUDA miner that would be perfect.

Yeah, it should be pretty much compatible with wine & mono, if not it will after a few small changes.

And i've made it (kind of) modular, so adding support for miners will be easy Smiley

Would you be able to donate? It will make me code faster Wink

you got too much whitespace

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Got me there. But that's likely a side effect of resizing the window. Tongue
