Open source Boolberry OpenCL miner
https://github.com/mbkuperman/boolberry-opencl.git

Read README.md for details and build instructions.

Windows x64 executables:
https://github.com/mbkuperman/boolberry-opencl/releases/download/v1.0/BoolberryOCL-20140719.zip

2% developer donation (you can change or disable it in the configuration file)

Solo version: boolbd.exe (best performance/reliability)
Pool (JSON RPC) version: simpleminer.exe (please, use solo version if you can!)

Personally, I think it doesn't make any sense to use pools while the block value is about $7. Just give enough time to the solo miner.

Tested on AMD GPUs only!

Expected performance:
6870, R270x - 500-600 khs
6970, R280X - 900-1000 khs
what does that mean "expected performance" ? Is this numbers you obtained with your cards ?

we need GPU miner, Boolberry is a good coin, worth a fairer distribution.

I don't know if a GPU miner would bring fairer distribution. I believe the scratchpad has to be fetched from the network, meaning a nice and slow host to device copy really often. A better CPU miner would probably bring fairer distribution.

It seems to me that both do achieve network effect to some extent, where extend is being lower for GPU - but its time scale is smaller (atleast atm). Here i'll note that the ratio of hashpowers  U/A (in terms of wild Keccak), where U is hashpower  used for mining any altcoin and A is “available” hashpower atm in the whole world, is much larger for GPU i suppose, which kinda means that less effort has to be put into marketing to release network effect potential. Here i'll not bother to define “available” hashpower since above seems to be holding for most(any?) reasonable definitions. It seems kinda obvious that using most of the available potentials "saves time" in sense that it buys additional time from the same recourses.
But i could be wrong Smiley
If i'm right, neater should be ignored. If the point is to go faster toward a fairer distribution, the GPU should be prioritized.

Anyhow, because of human psychology it seems that fair distribution of privacy oriented coin is much more important than one with public ledger, thus i believe that goal should be to go toward fairer distribution as fast as possible. It mitigates some FUD vectors

If you can mine as fast or slower with a GPU than with a CPU, you won't waste the power - CPUs use less. Miners don't care what they mine, as long as it's profitable.

I may have skewed angle on all this crypto stuff as BBR is almost as new to me as BTC. Still fill like Alice in Wonderland Grin
I'm just sharing some points that cross my mind. And do enjoy your posts, but technical stuff you write seem like magic to me Smiley

You should run boolbd.exe to solo mine. It's exactly the same as with original miner. My versions just uses GPUs instead of CPU cores.
Code:
boolbd --start-mining=<address> --mining-threads=1
(or 2,3 if you have many GPUs).

It should synchronize the blockchain before mining starts so wait if you run boolbd.exe first time. If you loaded the blockchain with original boolbd this miner will use it.

I'm not sure how you solo mine BBR with GPU as every error message when starting simpleminer.exe is "Failed to parse arguements: the option --login is required but missing." Why is this a necessity, and what does the login pertain to?

I may be doing it wrong or it might just not work with Nvidia on Windows 7.

I have a GeForce GTX 560 Ti; the usage goes up to 99% but it says "efficiency: 0% (shares 0/0, blocks 0/0)".

:\

oops, found a share! hashrate is 336,333. any way to make it take up less than 99% of the GPU though?

i'll leave it running while i'm out and let you know what happens Smiley

Stupid question.

If I am running the qt wallet and solo mining. Does the blocks go to the qt wallet or doe I still need to run the simple wallet to get the blocks?

EDIT:

I have a 280x, 270x, and 270.

I put in the threads for 3 but only gpu 0 (280x) runs.

I get for the other 2 "cl invalid value,  platform value must be between 0 & 4294967295"

I also get that on my 750ti's

If you are going to leave your BTC on an exchange please send it to this address instead 1GH3ub3UUHbU5qDJW5u3E9jZ96ZEmzaXtG, I will at least use the money better than someone who steals it from the exchange. Thanks Wink

Blocks goes to that address that you pointed at start_mining command. So it is no matter if you use qt wallet or simplewallet, it depends only of address.

you guys vouch for it?

also - how to NOT solo mine but poolmine?

I'm so new with BBR and I try to SOLO with this Boolberry OpenCL miner.
Does this seem to be OK with my 750Tis?
It seems like only miner0 is working, other 5 cards are not.

Aside from the GPU miner that was released today, what is unclear? I have tried to keep all instructions up to date. We did not know mbk was even working on a GPU miner until he released it. I will have instructions up by tomorrow morning (US time). In the mean time, use boolbd to solo mine. This is command line for single GPU:

Code:
boolbd.exe --start-mining <BBR-ADDRESS>

As I posted earlier, all files in the downloadable ZIP are clean:

I tested on my Radeon HD6940 and got 575KH/s.

The source needs to be looked over to verify it utilizes the GPU correctly. There are more comments in the bounty thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=693118.0

Set thread_delay in miner_conf.json to 2000 (2 seconds) or even more. It could help in multi GPU configurations. Moreover you can run 3 miners independently. Copy you data directory for each instance, set device_index in miner_conf.json in  copied directories to 1 and 2 and run 3 instances
Code:
boolbd --data-dir <datadir1> --start-mining=<address> --mining-threads=1
boolbd --data-dir <datadir2> --start-mining=<address> --mining-threads=1
boolbd --data-dir <datadir3> --start-mining=<address> --mining-threads=1
Moreover it makes sense to reboot before changing anything.
Stupid question.
