How can i select another platform for OpenCL?
I mean what will be the command for it?
The vanitygen client has command-line options -p for platform (if you have multiple versions of OpenCL installed), and -d for device to pick which physical CPU/GPU to run on. It also has a help option.
i tried it, says Invalid.

If you go here http://cryptolife.net/upwg/ you can select the prefix for any Alt coin.  I haven't had anything to do with Ethereum - but the command would be

Code:
c:\vanitygen\oclvanitygen64 -f work.txt -o dump.txt -X 63 -D 0:0

where work.txt had

Code:
nABC
nEFG
nHiJ
nKLM

replacing "n" with your prefix of choice and "63" with the corresponding letter of your prefix.

Some Wallets such as SexCoin have Both R and S so you would select 62 not 64

From the tiny bit I read on the link you provided, it looks like a CPU only generator and has some limitations where as VanityGen can generate for ANY wallet, can use someone's Part Public Key to generate a vanity for someone else, and uses the GPU (much more quicker).

If you post you Part Public Key here, someone can run you off a short Vanity 1demo for your Alt (if you let them know what the prefix is).

Ethereum doesn't use the same format.  The addresses are in hexadecimal and would need to be converted to ASCII to  see any words.

I guess there a few words you can spell with hex:  cafe, babe, abba.  There must be others.

You forgot 'face' and 'ace' Wink

I can help you to restore/recover your wallet or password.

So with hexadecimal that Ethereum uses, you are limited on words or customization that can be used for making custom addresses? I would like to have a custom ETH but seems a lot of work to generate one. Still playing with the cpu one maybe they can make for GPU Smiley

 Excellent point.  If you get creative with some numbers, they can be used in place of letters as well.

An Ethereum Vanity Wallet for a PGP/GPG fingerprint would actually be kind of cool

eg

Code:

Can the generated vanity address be used straight away? As long as we hold the private key,i believe it can be loaded into any btc wallet client?

 Yes but be careful because if you are using a deterministic wallet, those vanity keys will not be covered by your mnemonic or seed.  This means that if you lost your wallet and subsequently recovered it with only the mnemonic or seed, those coins stored in vanity addresses would not be recovered.  That being said, they should be saved in normal backups of the wallet.

 What wallet are you planning to use?

It is Smiley But the other way around: 100-50=50%, and that takes half the time of 100-25=75%.

I hit the wrong button, the last = was - earlier. Edited to fix it Smiley

A few (!) pages back I mentioned the discrepancies with the time estimation for 50% 75% etc

This is from my system right now:

Quote
Searching for pattern: "1EXAmoney" Reward: 0.008000 Value: 0.000001 BTC/MkeyHr
Difficulty: 50656515217834
[38.97 Mkey/s][total 33002830692352][Prob 47.9%][50% in 15.0h]

using OclVanityMiner64.exe - to my way of thinking, half of 50 should be 25...
It is Smiley But the other way around: 100-50=50%, and that takes half the time of 100-25-75%.

Well, if you don't know, you should just say you don't know instead of speaking in such a condescending manor.

Similarly, this is where I'm at now...

(again, I would have imagined at 40/50 I'd be 80% done - No?)

The percentage is not based on a linear algorithm.

The key's that you are processing are generated based on randomness.
So the progress indicator is following some statistical algorithms that involve normal distribution, 'bell-curves', probability etc.

In short; this indicator shows the chance that you would have found a hit by now.

So if I got this right:
If person A wants me to search for a vanity address for him, but I would also like to search for vanity addresses for n other people simultaneously, the result that I find, with which person A can generate his desired vanity address, is only usable to person A if he has a certain piece of information from all these n other people?

 I don't think you have it right.  Where did you read this?

Is the Difficulty: 50656515217834 a ball park figure?

I've had instances in the past where my searches (for my own Private Keys) have gone beyond 100% which I mentioned here and got tut-tutted that it wouldn't happen...

I also rarely find anything until I'm in the 90% to 100% bracket which is most irritating...

...and no, when I say for my own private keys, I'm not talking about putting a part public key of my own in and searching based on that...
