I just noticed, but the wafflepool X13 price keeps being 0, leading to the rest of the calculations being 0 as well. Am I the only with this?

I see that too and it is coming in as zero from the API.  I'm not sure if WafflePool is starting up or shutting down support for X13 as they have instructions for it on their website but it does not show up in the top line stats on the site.

As I recall, a few months ago they "ran out" of profitable X13 coins to mine.  Not sure why they haven't found replacements by now, but they did shut down the X13 pool until profitable coins are found again.
(I repeat, other pools still have profitable X13 coins/pools, so I don't know why WafflePool doesn't)

Miner Control 1.3.0 has been released and is available for download.

This release adds downloading of exchange rate for local currency and showing balances in local currency.

hi guys
is there any point in enabling waffle pool in the config? since its not live api, isnt there a chance i will not be making top $ mining it if its previous (but currently shown stat) isn't as high as it really is.

Also, any chance on getting Mutlipool and Blackpool (Blackcoin) on board?

I use a weight of 0.8 for wafflepool to correct for possibly lower prices.

Multipool does seem to haven an API, so it is possible, but I do not know how often it updates.

Blackpool pays out in Blackcoin, and for this tool it needs to be BTC. I guess it could be worked in by converting blackcoin prices to BTC, but that would just make it more complicated

The recent volatility in Bitcoin price made me decide it was time to put this in.  As for the currency symbol, when I saw that was part of the data returned by the API I figured it wouldn't hurt to have it in there.

Single algo (Scrypt), doesn't appear to have an API, and charges nearly 5% fee.  Umm, no thanks.

Does anyone else use this software for ASIC?  I realize most of the program's utility is geared towards GPU miners, but I'd imagine I'm not the only one looking to pool switch on Scrypt only.

I'm guessing it wouldn't be too hard for asics to use this, just point it at the miner, change the .conf accordingly, and put a 0 for all the hashing speeds of the other algos. But you probably are a minority in this thread, and I don't know how much sense it would make to develop things specifically for that minority. Of course, if the dev has enough time, he is free to do so, more functionality is never wrong.

Being that Miner Control just launches an external program for mining it should work with any ASIC miner that is software controlled.  You don't even have to zero out the other algorithms, just remove their lines completely.

If anyone wants to send me a few ASIC miners I'll be happy to test it out.  Tongue

For quality purposes, one should test on multiple systems. For this, I volunteer. PM me for contact info to send me the ASIC miners.

To dddbtc:  Regardless of whether it will work well with ASIC miners (which it should), that pool still seems like a terrible pool.  No API makes it hard to work with, and the 5% fee is rather high.  Most pools charge 2% on average, and virtually all of the included pools already support Scrypt.  Suggest a better pool and I'm sure he'll be happy to add it.

Now that the program is open source anyone else is welcome to add the support for another pool and submit a pull request for me to integrate it.  If you look at the YAAMP or WafflePool service code it is under 100 lines of working code mostly involving parsing out the API results.  Adding a new service only requires creating two files and doing one line modifications to two other files.

Yeah, I haven't had a chance to look over the code yet. Tongue  Rest assured I will take a look, and submit any ideas/changes I come up with…and I'm sure the code's not as big a mess as you made it out to be before. Wink  lol

OK, so I get miner control config'd and the control panel comes up. When I hit auto eventually all status displays as dead. Help!?

error log:

Type: InvalidOperationException
Message: Sequence contains no elements
Stack trace:    at System.Linq.Enumerable.First[TSource](IEnumerable`1 source)
   at MinerControl.MiningEngine.RunBestAlgo(Boolean isMinimizedToTray)

First, try launching a miner manually (start button on the price grid).  If it doesn't start then you have a config error causing the miner to go dead.

Best guess is an error in your conf file.  If you provide a copy of it I can take a look.  Most likely you are not getting any valid miner entries from the file so trying to determine the best paying algo throws an error.

Try running with the sample conf file bundled with the executable.  Put in your Bitcoin address and TMB key.  Start modifying from there to put your own miner information in.
