The new 64bit miner that just came out is a giant clusterfuck and couldn't make it work.

Thank you so much. That package took weeks to put together and test and it should work first time. If it doesn't, I want to know why. Simply dismissing it the way you have helps nobody. What exactly were the problems you had with it? If you just download the package, unzip it and run automine.bat without any tinkering whatsoever, what happens? What exactly is the machine environment you are attempting to run it on? You need a minimum of Windows 7 SP1 to use the 64 bit minerd. Anything less than that and you must use the 32 bit minerd, or the miner built into the XMG wallet.

Incidentally, why would having to install yet another bit of software and going through the learning curve with it be of any benefit to a noob? I don't get it.

Software release for 64-bit Windows

Spexx, well done, great job. I let my miner run an hour with your worker data.

Thanks ... and thanks! A whole hour? Fantastic mate Cheesy

I support this coin. so much development going on. this is by far maybe on my top 5 list of coins!



me too. I think this is a big start for the industry i'll support magi all the way

I support Magi the first anti-botnet mining network to give regular miners the fair chance of mining. Talk to #Magi on IRC: https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net/#magi or on BitcoinTalk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=735170.0

Another option of compiling on windows is using mingw if you'd like to try that out too. Smiley

Believe me, I've tried Cheesy It is really clunky and I have had no end of problems with it. I just can't seem to get a 64 bit version of mingw to play ball with me. I am even having trouble with the 32 bit version this time but will get there eventually. Please let me know when I can run up the testnet wallet again without interfering with anything you are doing at the moment. My new version of minerd for the new algo gives a hashrate around 31 percent of the hashrate obtainable with the current algo, but otherwise has much the same properties and still runs best if started with multiple instances as opposed to multiple threads. It is about 51 percent faster than the miner built into the wallet.

Spexx, I've done the testnet, you can run the wallet now, will need to download a new wallet though (from here: http://cryptomagic.com/files/magi-release/testnet/ (v1.0.0.4)), cause I just made a hardfork to implement the new difficulty adjustment algo. If you can detect any difficulty change/network hashrate variation that is more stable than before, let me know. I will be expecting this is what we'll get but testnet has much less hashrate and may hardly tell the truth probably.

Hey there, I worked on Simplicity-MYR and just switched my CPU miners to this coin (still GPU & ASIC mining MYR)

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in me writing it to work with this coin? It'd be a minor rewrite and make it much more noob friendly.

https://github.com/aceoyame/Simplicity-MYR

Granted I would need some other dev's to work with me but we could make it work here too.

The new 64bit miner that just came out is a giant clusterfuck and couldn't make it work. This would be much more simple. All you guys need is electrum or for the wallet to export the wallet address in plaintext somewhere as well as P2Pool or a pool that is happy taking wallet addresses as the user name.

aceoyame, just had a rough looking over the things, not quite getting the tasks to be done to get this work, but guess we'll need a miner (Spexx's miner should work the way as easy as the miners other people provided) and a P2P (or NOMP, I think), unfortunately we don't have these two options yet.

Anyone else may give a hand on this. Thx.

just saw this post. Pretty impressed by the outlook from other contributors. Great work Spexx! 

Software release for 64-bit Windows

Finally here! This is the latest "generic" version of minerd.exe compiled with the latest version of the Cygwin compiler, plus a bunch of Windows batch files to help you get it running perfectly in double-quick time. Essentially, to get started with XMG on 64-bit Windows, you only have to download the wallet and this package, run my Setup.bat and it will do everything else for you. You do not have to edit any configuration files (e.g. magi.conf) or create any batch files. All you have to do is answer the questions about how you want it to run in your particular circumstances.

It has never been easier to get up and running with a cryptocoin on Windows!

When you have run the Setup.bat, starting the miner is simply a matter of running XMGminer.bat, which includes a miner monitor program, or running Myminer.bat which just starts the miner. If you want to test it before running Setup.bat just run automine.bat and it will connect to my accounts on the pools to show you what hashrate you can expect. Mining a bit of XMG on my behalf while you are testing is your "thank you" to me for creating this software for you - not too much to ask is it? Wink

The Setup.bat supports solo mining with a wallet on the same computer, solo mining with a wallet on another computer, pool mining and twin pool mining. It supports single or multiple workers on the pool(s) and will spread the load across two pools. It also supports automatic failover in the event of a pool going offline. You can choose to have the output from each miner process displayed in its own window, or have a single window for the output from all miner processes. The only proviso is that your login name must be the same on both pools and the worker name(s) must also be the same and have the same password throughout. Multiple workers must have the same name but numbered consecutively e.g. Worker0, Worker1, Worker2 etc, (which is exactly how I have my pool accounts configured) - one worker for each CPU core on your computer. The batch files act as a "wrapper" for the minerd.exe to start multiple instances of minerd.exe, rather than starting a single instance of minerd.exe with multiple threads. This is the most efficient way of doing things. The software supports up to 32 CPU cores on a single computer.

Note: This minerd.exe is for the current live m7m algorithm, not the new algorithm which will come into effect shortly (currently on testnet). There will be a similar release with an updated minerd.exe to support the new algorithm available on the same links nearer the time of the live changeover.

The .rar package is on the same link as found in the OP:-

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hiadf8o5u7bsit7/XMGpoolminerWin64.rar?dl=0

I have also created a Windows self-extracting .exe (default target folder is C:/XMGminer):-

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dw7yjssjrrqp0m1/XMGpoolminerWin64.exe?dl=0

There is a read.me file included in the package with a little more information. Please report your experiences with this software, good, bad or indifferent. Any problems, just post here and I will try my best to help you out.

Happy hashing Cheesy

Crikey! You got 40. OK I can extend it to support 40 but it will take a while with a pen and calculator. It supports a maximum of 32 at the moment and I did plan to extend it to 64 anyway, so I'll get on it. It will take rather less time to make a version that supports exactly 40 processors, just for you, than it would to make a version that supports any number of processors up to 40 (and beyond). I'll be back ...

Ok - done that. Including support for any number that is a multiple of four is a cinch. I have called it automine40.bat so when you have downloaded it, rename your existing automine.bat to something like automine-max32.bat and then rename automine40.bat to automine.bat and you should be good to go. Here is the link for the file:-

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cqjbvjp2klkqkl2/automine40.bat?dl=0

Anybody else got more than 32 processors? Lucky you Cheesy

Thanks for that. It will give me something to play with when I get back from work today. I have started up the new wallet and it synced ok. It will be running idle for the next 12 hours or so, then I will be testing the latest minerd with it. It says it is not staking because I don't have any mature coins, even though I have over 3000 testnet XMG in it.

Incidentally, why would having to install yet another bit of software and going through the learning curve with it be of any benefit to a noob? I don't get it.

The problem was it was prompting for a pool username and I've never had to use one with stratum. Also it isn't optimized as its using the generic miner.

If you switch to a better language you can include detection of CPU features. It also appeared to open a new window for each thread by default.

The existing miner that was 64 bit worked great for me. That's what I am planning on using with simplicity when I port it.

Also why did you include CPU-z and have some other stuff included? The whole package just doesn't make sense. I've been a long time miner and that package asks too many questions. People want it to be as simple as possible. There is a lot you can do to simplify that still.

After the hardfork I think all existing miners will need to be recompiled to include the new module for the modifications to the algo
