    That is a bit... misleading...

    The maximum CPU time is still at 100%, so that isnt the issue. I limited the number of processors to use in a multiprocessor system to 50% (see attached), so I am not sure if we are on the same page :wtf:

    Thanks for the reply :D

    Ok, I think I get you now. :rolleyes:

    The way BOINC is setup you'd need to set affinity to each of the WU's that are being worked on. But each time you start a new WU you'd need to do that again, which isn't pratical.

    Had a quick search through the BOINC forum and seems this is a question that has popped up a few times, but there hasn't been any resolution. :(

    Process lasso has an option to set the default affinity for any process. And since you can use wildcards in specifying the name, with a few entries, you should be able to set the default affinity as you please for almost any wcg work unit - just by using the first few characters.

    The only problem is that I can't get it to work. Either, I'm not using the wild cards properly, I don't understand what the feature is really supposed to do or I'm just generally screwing up.

    If anyone tries this and gets it to work, please post about it.

    Edit: Process lasso is free for the basic version. This may have the default affinity featured enabled. You'll have to check.

    Oh lol ok. Thanks man :) appreciate your assistance. I will leave it as it is then. Hopefully one day the software will be sorted out. I realised the Work Unit thing initially... which sucks. Oh well :)

    thanks again :toast:

    Thanks Twilyth, I will have a look into that as an option.

    Also - check this out - i think it is precisely what you need.

    WinAFC
    Here are some examples

    Thanks Twilyth.

    Right now Process Lasso is working, but I will try WinAFC too, seems better suited...

    Thanks again :D

    What are the requirements for the WCG cruncher badge? I was folding and crunching when they were introduced, Folding one has always worked as expected, but I've never ever gotten a WCG badge. My ID on WCG is Jstn7477 and I've been attached to TPU for like 2 years now.

    To earn the badge you need 100,000 Boinc points (700,000WCG). Then once you hit that it will continue to appear as long as you remain active.

    Looking at your stats, you're 56% of the way there. If you keep up your current 2-3K you should be there in about 15 days :toast: :rockout:

    I think he also has to put his WCG name in the appropriate box under 'User CP --> edit options'

    Yeah, I already had my names there from 2 years ago, just looks like I didn't meet the points criteria yet. My recent activity is from 50% of a 4.4GHz i7-2600K. I will probably bump up the resource allocation to speed things up a bit. Rig is also running F@H v7 beta on a "6970" which uses like 15% CPU and a 1GHz GTX 550 Ti which uses like 1% and gets like double the PPD lol. I'll be hitting a million F@H points in a few days as I'm at 985K @ 11-15K PPD with both cards active. :)
