Will have to check later what -t does, but put the address at end...

Code:
vanitygen64.exe -t 3 1PURCAZ

Mhhh I tried that too... I'll try again.

This works fine here:
./vanitygen -t 1 1test

Isn't lowering the priority a better idea than limiting the number of threads? On Linux I just put "nice" in front of the command (although it doesn't help much with oclvanitygen).

It works, but although the computer is responsive, the Resource Monitor shows that all the 4 CPU are working. Well, I guess I won't be playing videogames for the next 8 days or so  Grin

That's why I tested with 1 thread. It's easier to see that way, as other applications eat CPU too.
Just in case: you can always turn it off when you want to use your PC, and turn it back on when you don't need the speed somewhere else. It just continues checking random addresses, so no work gets lost.

This is something that I can't completely catch: it says that in 8 days the chances to find it are 50%, and I suppose the number increases while time passes.
So how is it possible that there's no "lost work" if I cut the search now and resume later, when the resuming is actually not resuming anything, but starting from scratch?

Imagine you have a dice with 10000 sides. You want to roll number 4567. You throw it 200 times, but didn't hit it.
You stop for a while, to do something else with your time. Later, you continue throwing 200 more times. You repeat this every day, until you hit 4567.
Does this make sense?

Vanitygen doesn't have a fixed starting point, it searches random addresses. There is no need to keep track of the addresses that were checked already, as the number of available addresses is big enough to never check the same address twice.
Every second that you run it, it increases the chance of finding the prefix you want. If "it says that in 8 days the chances to find it are 50%" when you start vanitygen, that exact same statement is also valid after 4 days, after 12 days, or at any other moment in time. It doesn't matter how many keys you've searched already, and it doesn't matter how long it has been running already.

OK, I get that you can throw a dice 1000 times and each time it's a new throw that has nothing to do with the previous ones.
What I don't get is why it says now Prob 1.1% and then there's that 50%.
The 1.1% was 0.1% when I first started mining.
What is that 1.1% related to? Chances to find the name in the next 8 days?

Take my big dice imaginary again Cheesy You're going to throw it again, and at the 110th throw, you hit the 4567 you wanted! Out of 10,000 possibilities, you had a 1.1% chance to hit it. You're lucky!

Back to vanitygen: I've had prefixes that I found instantly, while there was a 50% chance to find it in (for example) 1 minute. But the opposite happens too: 50% chance in 1 hour and no hits within 8 hours. If you're very unlucky, your 8 day search could take months. It's just not very likely.

When you want to use 3 cores, I assume you use vanitygen? But you're also talking about games, so I assume you have a decent graphics card. Can you use oclvanitygen?

how much addreeses can be generated per minute ?

If my second card doesn't over heat, I can do *nearly* 50 Mkeys/sec X 60 = 3,000Mkeys/ Minutes (ie 3 Billion keys a minute...)

When it does overheat, I can do *about* 20Mkeys/sec X 60 = 1,200 Mkeys / sec or 1.2 Billion keys per minute.

I'm wringing my hands wondering if I should buy a good new GPU card to replace the overheating one, or a whole new system...

I paid a pretty penny for the box (second hand) My GPU cards are feeble for generating script coin, so I have put them to use here.

Post your part public key here and send to the Wallet Address below (click on the "BTC" for details...) and I'll get started.

Let me guess: you recently got (bought or hacked) this account, and now you're just spamming short lines in every topic to quickly level up towards Hero Member with 700+ Actiivty?

It would appear that way.



To answer your question, no. It can't be used to generate addresses for every altcoin. You can find modified versions of Vanitygen here

If you go here: http://cryptolife.net/upwg/ you can select the number for the Alt Coin you want to generate a vanity address for and then use the

Code:
- X (number)
for the relevant Wallet Address...

These:

Code:
SEX8NQXZs35BubjnkkqciSLg4WNqDLxSEX
Ryan9u6ZqjaeEfdauSMKyM8Pv44Jn82jiF

Here are SexCoin SXC Vanity Wallets I've generated recently...

SEX8NQXZs35BubjnkkqciSLg4WNqDLxSEX

Ryan9u6ZqjaeEfdauSMKyM8Pv44Jn82jiF



I believe Etherium Wallets are the only ones Vanitygen.exe can't generate for due to a Hexadecimal method of presenting the Wallet Addresses.

Waited 8 days with 50%, now the window looks like this.



Is anyone able to explain what those % mean at all?
I can't understand what these % mean.
I understand that the higher % means higher chance to find the address, but do the % refer to a precise timeframe or?
And if it doesn't refer to a timeframe, what does it point to?

Is that 75% the chance to find the address in the next 8 days?
Or that after 8 days I will have 75% of chance to find the address in the following 8 days?

Or that after 8 days I will have 75% of chance to find the address in the following 8 days?

This has been explained time and time again...

The prob % is the odds that you would have found the address in the time you've been running the program.  In your scenario, it is estimated this job will take 32 days (at the rate shown in the screenshot).  It appears at this rate you've been running vanitygen for 16 days which is 53.2% of the expected time to find the address.  It goes a step further by telling you that in another 8 days, there will have been a 75% chance you would have found the address.

So, the first prob shows your current progress at finding the address (this is an estimate as it is random), and the second tells you more detailed stats of how much longer until you have a 50%, 75%, etc. chance at finding the address.
