Quick question - when will the fixed credit situation be live? Seven days ago, you said it would be seven days. So I downloaded and crunched some PS3 WUs today, and was granted 0.02 credits each.

Could you please announce when fixed credits will officially be implemented?

@Fabio

Your plan sounds fine. Run with it. Don't get sidetracked by "special interests".

I totally agree. This is great news. Thanks!

Hi Biggles,

we are working on a new credit system, which grants fixed credits per wu ...

thx for crunching and best regards,
Fabio


Will this be implemented on the PS3 app as well?

Any news about this? I'd love to use the PS3 to crunch this project, but would like the credit issue solved first...

Thank you.

It's been a few weeks, so I wanted to check back in. I'm anxious to hear about the progress on fixing the credit situation for the PS3 app...

Bump...

Quick bump: Any updates on fixing the credit with crunching on a PS3?

FWIW, all projects that have PS3 apps have had to create custom credit awarding methods. BOINC does not know how to deal with their CPU structure. Similar problem with GPUs.

So I suggest that the admin look at the credits awarded for a typical WU run by a CPU, and make that fixed credits for any task returned by a PS3. Otherwise the PS3 volunteer is going to quit participating.

Good info - thank you, zombie67.

To drive this point home: Yoyo = 1500 credits/day. Primaboinca = 6 credits/day. For 250x the credit, I'm going to stick with Yoyo. I would LOVE to crunch Primaboinca on the PS3, but can't justify keeping the PS3s on for 6 credits/day.

yoyo (from Rechenkraft.net - sp?) and the folks at PrimeGrid (specifically, the old AP26 project), may be able to offer advice on a PS3 BOINC app. Both are pretty active in the BOINC community and good people. ;-)

The app here works well; it's just the granted credits that are the problem...
