The zip and rar files made available earlier by sandro (except for the one that had no app_info file) can be downloaded from one of my web sites here;

www.arizmoon.com

The apps are...... amazing!!! You'll be over the moon with them ;)

Thanks again for the original links sandro, and to Gipsel and twodee for making them.



ICE I'm a bit confused on what file I should have. I have an AMD x2 6400 and it has SSE,SSE2,SSE3. I think I need to go with SSE2 so that the other system can run it without my getting confused about who has what or where. Oh and I don't use winrar... sigh

Well that was fast. Nothing like having a ton of computer errors and it sending them in so fast that it was hard to stop it. Hard to detact and thankfully put my backup I made back on that I had made just before I tried this little experiment.. EXTRA SIGH

Arion, on www.arizmoon.com you will find a link to Cpu-z. Download that and run CPU-Z on your PC.

Under the CPU tab in CPU-Z the 'Instructions' may show SSE, SSE2, SSSE3...

If all are inluded you can use SSE3, but if only SSE and SSE2 then only use SSE2. Use SSE (MW_SSEV2.zip) if the other 2 do not appear.

There are two options for SSE2 (MW-SSE2.rar and in MW.rar) because two options are available.

I will put zip alternatives on www.arizmoon.com for the rar downloads later this evening.

... my RAC is going balistic compared with just over a day ago... ;)

This is not good. The faster application is throwing out garbage results. These results will not be counted and you will not get credit for them.

Which of the faster apps gives out garbage results?
SSE 2 or SSE3? Or all? *scratches head*

Do you know what app is throwing out garbage? Team 3Dnow has been using this app since mid December.

I would have expected this to be caught by now -

I have just checked the results which are viewable on my rigs and all seems to be OK here. I hope I can continue like that.

I can certainly see why Dave is concerned as this puts unnecessary strain on the servers without valid results coming back, meaning these WUs need to be reissued.

Well, they picked a good time to release this while everyone was away on winter break.

At any rate, the assimilator is being updated today (so work might be a little sporadic until I've fixed all the bugs), and with the new changes over the weekend we will be not awarding credits to invalid results returned (and perhaps even docking them). We're still working out a good policy for this, so expect a news post soon.

My CPU dont have SSSE3 and SSE4.1 instructions, so I cant test it.

Thx for the info. i linked this thread to p3d, so they can have a look into it.
sesef, could you also check your faster app you are using please?
Invalid results are of course not the intention of the opt-apps

I just checked the results on the couple workunits crunched with this app and they are coming up as valid. Any ideas on specifically which app is causing an issue?

This is strange as well. I detached all boxes and the account page still shows all. Some even have work shown pending.
