    A solid guide sheepson and not really much to add to it. The SDK does indeed solve some issues but othertimes swapping around with the various ATI Catalysts also solves some problems.

    Maybe not relevant to this guide, but the Catalyst Uninstall Utility is a godsend for those trying to tweak out the best Catalyst version for themselves:

    Added this also 🙂

    I got a question, does older cards, like mine nV9600GT can handle this? Even after setting intensity to 1, I can’t pass the first phase:

    use cudaminer for nvidia cards, cgminer won’t get the same hashrate.

    Kudos for the reply!
    Is there a link to the complete cudaminer? all I found so far are dead links to mega(upload) and links to list of files which I don’t get what to do with :o

    Stupid me! Forgot that mega hates Opera, thanks, trying to set my miner atm 🙂

    Hi, good work on the guide! CGMiner under the latest drivers for windows throws alot of hardware errors unless you run CMD and type setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

    Took me a while to figure that one out when i first started maybe you can add? 🙂

    Added it, thank you :).

    i found this and it seems awsome almost like GUIminer i use for NVIDIA 9500 gt card now i have not seen it do anything though. Since i am using the GPU i have it as worker .1 will i need to have the CPU be worker .2 ? ALso on the tab " Mining Pool Status “” it has 4 things listed on there but i think they are for litecoin, can this be used for Feathercoin mining? Im just getting worried it is still showing 0, this screen shots taken like 10 minutes after i started it

    Thankyou for the tutorial!
    It seems very clear on what to do.
    so I did it step by step but I can’t seem to make it work.
    I’m trying the cgminer for GPU mining. (ATI 6770) made an account on d2, made the .bat file with my data in it. but when I click on it. it opens a command prompt for like half a sec and closes again. I can’t figure out where it goes wrong… as I did every step of the tutorial. any suggestions!? 😞

    Update:
    Downloaded AMD APP SDK. as it said in another tread that this is probably the solve for the crash.
    But unfortunately it still does. I managed to make a screenshot of the quick CMD promt and it stated:: cgminer.exe: --scrypt: unrecognized option
    tried different versions of cgminer that didn’t work eighter…

    Update:
    Got it! it seemed to be a problem with the cgminer version and the .batfile that was giving the “unrecognized” message

    Maybe Pin/Sticky this.

    Looks a good point of reference.

    Thanks for you feedback, the latest version of CGMiner does not support scrypt anymore, i’ll update my post.

    well I tried this just to see if I can get CPU mining along with gpu miner did not think it would be problem. I did download, extracted and typed in the 4 pieces of info it asked for. Clicked start and has been at " 0 " for like 10 minutes or longer. I only keep getting [2013-12-31 17:06:16] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

    I have a few questions,
    what do you put into the .BAT file you make. the tutorial doesn’t mention.
    Also what do you name the file “???.BAT”


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    It mentions it but could be clearer,

    the cgminer.bat file is just to run the GPU setting 100%, so you can use full power. then cgminer.exe

    e.g.

    cd\cgminer
    setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
    cgminer.exe
