I would have to agree with the “join a pool” statement, solo mining won’t get you very far at all. Chances of you mining anything on your own is very slim now with the difficulty skyrocketing. IF you do happen to mine something though, it will show up in your wallet when the next sync occurs as unconfirmed, and then eventually confirmed once the block you mined has been confirmed on the network.
I also recommend getting another miner app than the feathercoin app as it won’t be very efficient. For software and pool configuration, see my getting starting page [url=https://ftc.d2.cc/gettingstarted.php]https://ftc.d2.cc/gettingstarted.php[/url].
You could try (nearby) solomining with a pretty small pool or group mining with a bigger one. Smaller pools mean more FC but also higher risk to get nothing. Larger pools are solid but you have a lot less profit. A small pool I found is at http://22.214.171.124:81/ a bigger one is http://www.fcpool.com/ or any other just choose what you prefer. 200/eg 5 or 200/200 but steady payouts eg 10 FC per day. Choose wise.
It’s up to you.

Okay I got cuda to work. I went from the 55k hash to over 110
It takes some playing around with to find the sweet spot though…
WHat I ended up doing was dling everything listed and installing ( be carefull that you have C++ 08 and 10 installed too ) unpacking it all into a folder together… made a shortcut to the desktop… and then adding the flags/ site info into it.
Here is an example what the shortcut has added to it:
C:\Users\Mine\Downloads\cudaminer-2013-04-22\cudaminer.exe -i 0 -l 42x7 -C 2 -o “website” -O “username”:“Password”
PSS…my 540 went from 35k to 75k with cuda. I think i put the -l 8x8 or something not sure… I am still playing around with my main card lol
I am still looking around for the best settings for my cards, but this more or less has doubled the output.
PS… when you make a shortcut to the desktop you right click on it and then select properties… then a box should pop up that allows you to add the stuff in it.
Can you explain how you got it to work? I’ve installed cudaminer and I created a launch.bat file, but when I run it, I don’t think it’s detecting my card. Any help would be appreciated.
With something like minerd you would need to use the -t option and set it to the number of processors you have.
What miner are you using and what does your config look like?
Let me know how you get on.
I’ve read almost everything that Joethesworn has said through these forums and others and honestly I think he’s full of it. I’d like to skype with you Joe to prove you are infact a teacher and are teaching about cryptos. Could you please provide the university name, phone number, and maybe contact information for the dean you are meeting with? I would like to call the dean and express my support for your program if it truly does exist.
The difficulty has gotten quite high, it would be best to switch to pooled mining. You can still get a decent amount of coins for your hash power. Around 84 Feathercoin a day. Use one of the pools in the post linked below.
