I'm looking to get into mining but I'm a bit stuck at the moment. I have basicaly followed the instrustions on this guide here http://www.newslobster.com/random/how-to-get-started-using-your-gpu-to-mine-for-bitcoins-on-windows
but now I seem to be stuck.
Obviously this guide goes on to use poclbm miner. Instead of poclbm i was going to try the diablominer. I've edited the diablominer-windows.l4j file as follows:
#lauch4j runtime config -Xmx16m -Xms16m -Djava.library.path=target\libs\natives\windows -(my username) -(my password)
Problem is when I start the diablominer-windows.exe file it says :
unrecognized option. (my username)
could not start the java virtual machine
The bitcoin.exe file seems to open and connect fine but the deamon one just opens with a black cmd screen and nothing seems to happen.
Im running an i7 920 system with windows 7 64bit and a gtx 570 (270.61 driver) and have installed java 6. I know nvidias gpu's are not the best for mining but I wanted to see if I could get myself up and running before purchasing a hd 6970.
All this batch file editing is quite new to me but I'm learning as I go.
Any help or advice appreciated.
