    How to install & setup WCG

    Read this to install and config WCG correctly

    • Sign up here (or if re-installing, you must be signed in on worldcommunitygrid.org)
    • Follow the rest of the steps after signing up.


    It will allow you to download BOINC and tell you how to set up WCG with BOINC. BOINC has automatic support for multiple cores last time I knew.

    MISC SETUP & ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

    You can configure your account http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms...yMemberPage.do.. like joining a team, etc.

    This project is BOINC Compatible, I'll add that to the guide. There you can use multiple cores.

    To get your stats to update, you need to have your username like this. For example, my WCG username is NickS, so add XtremeSystems after your username.

    That's why the old UD client is being dropped. It's oudated, you get less points and doesn't work on multi-core cpu's, your going to have to use boinc im afraid .

    ok up and running for XS @ 100% CPU with my A64 @ 2.2 Ghz.

    Question. Will running this on my Dual-Core Turion TL-50 produce enough to warrant me to install this on it?

    BOINC returns way more points for me on the same machines (fast ones compared to a lot of old school crunchers) than UD. A WU is a WU, points don't matter THAT much, but getting double the points for the same WU is nice.

    I removed the UD install guide, as you can use BOINC on single core too and it gets us more points .

    here's the WCG sign up page basically fill in what it asks; http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/re...o?platform=all

    then follow this boinc guide to set it up; https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.or...YouBoincWin.do

    once done log in on the www.worldcommunitygrid.org website and go to the team page here; http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/te...mId=69B8364XP1

    simply click "join this team" button and your done.

    1)go to the FDC forums and log in
    2)wait to appear on the XS team page here; http://stats.free-dc.org/new/teamsta...=XtremeSystems
    3)go to the stats tool and enter in the WCG box "usernameXtremeSystems" e.g. for me "melymel2789XtremeSystems"
    4) click the tick box and then update and you are done.

    to change your sig just sign -in to the free-dc.org forum, then go to stats.free-dc.org and go to the statstool config, from there you'll be able to figure it out if you've done it before. for WCG you want to enter your name with XtremeSystems on the end, instead of your boinc ID. like this:

    ok so I have the project attatched to BOINC so now do I close the WCG thing or leave both open?

    Also does this 100% load tool need to be applied everytime I reboot?
