    hwbot develops



    hwbot has been developing fiercely in the past months. richba5tard has a crew now, but we still have to thank him for doing most of this all by himself.

    Let's take a look at some of the new features.


    hwbot 1.9.5 updates:
    • uploading a pic when submitting results
    • hw database and information displaying improved in many ways
    • newspost editing / posting improved
    • many bugs removed from the engine


    Some of the upcoming 1.9.6 updates:
    • complete gui overhaul
    • avatar and footer creation


    From the user perspective the most interesting updates are prolly the new hwbot picture features.


    Uploading pics with submissions

    It's now possible to upload pictures with the result submissions. The picture gets an embedded field showing the ranking and other information of the entry. The picture gets updated as the rankings change.

    hw browsing

    Looks like this atm:


    browse processors
    browse videocards


    hwbot avatar and sig pics

    This feature is not ready yet, but it will have great flexibility. Think about the dc stats sig pics, but now for your overclocking results. Here are some standard forms:







    The benchmark rankings can also be written on an uploaded avatar pic.


    Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. Anything you would like to get changed in hwbot? Missing features you would reckon useful?

    You type in a keyword like 'venice' or '3200' and choose the cpu from the list that opens. imo works nicely once you get used to it. Nice oc there!

    well if it ever comes down to it, i think we found our replacement for the orb?

    excellent work, futuremark should steal a few of your ideas

    Sorry, in my book nothing is valid unless its in a case, and hence, a "normal" environment, by all means go nuts on cooling not a problem, but an open top setup with an OC ppl claim to be stable when in all reality inside a PC it probably won't be? Thats just unacceptable to me.

    I think futuremark doesn't really care for the oc community. Only one result moderator, while we have 2. really late for adding new hw specs, no support for teams, ...

    http://www.hwbot.org all the way : )

    I would like to add a few words to the discussion at the end of this page:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...=108832&page=9

    hwbot is not really trying to be a replacement for ORB. Being independent from the benchmark companies is what makes all the additional functionality of hwbot possible.

    FM benchmarks would be very welcome among these (though not likely to happen anytime soon if ever).

    So hotlinking the graphs won't work for long (not a bug). Here's the 08-02-2006 (static) version of the chart mentioned by rb:



    1.9.6 is now fully working with the new gui and many new statistics. Signature pic generation will be finished later.

    Huge thanks for XS for being clearly the most active team:

    New Forms of hwbot Competition

    Here are some profound upcoming changes, at least from user's perspective. New forms of competition:

    * member hall of fame
    - who's who in the benchmarking world - an overall user ranking
    - based on global and hw rankings, global give much more points
    - credit system will be explained in detail later

    * team overall hall of fame
    - based on the (best of the) team's positions in the rankings
    - e.g. take six best bm rankings for the team and add up, the lower the sum the better

    * half-year championships for teams
    - e.g. 3DMark06 hwbot champions H1/2006
    - main idea is to give lasting merits for the teams

    * contests
    - custom competitions defined by users
    - will not be limited to virtual prizes.
    - type: members or team (team averages)
    - scope team: challenge (2 teams) or open to all teams
    - or scope members: team members or open to all
    - timing: first one to reach xxx or highest score at given time
    - hardware: specific hw family / model or open to all
    - prize
    At least the overall personal competition should be ready soon. It's not too late to give feedback and criticism tho.
