Official 2012 Chimp Challenge Rules: Start time for the contest is Tuesday, May 15th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). The finish for the contest is Friday, May 25th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). 1. Each team will fold for 10 days solid for the duration of the contest. A "Chimp Points" system will be used to determine the placings as follows: Points system: • There will be three categories - Points, Growth and Conversion: Points are the # of millions each team produces (120,000,000 is 120 points). Growth is based off of last year's CC production (essentially, the handicap system we used last year). Conversion is the amount of points made by the team by their CC user (so monkey_bollocks points/OCAU points*100). • Each category will be "normalised" as follows: Example numbers Team A - 120 Team B - 84 Team C - 47 Team D - 103 We take the range (max-min, which = 73). We then use this formula = (points*100/range). So the scores become: Team A - 164.4 Team B - 115.1 Team C - 64.4 Team D - 141.1 Finally, we subtract the lowest score (64.4) from all teams, to bring the points into a 10-110 range (10 for lowest team, 110 for highest team): Team A = 110 Team B = 50.7 Team C = 10 Team D = 76.7 • We add up the totals for each category, and the team with the most points across all three categories wins. 2. Start time for the contest is Tuesday, May 15th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). The finish for the contest is Friday, May 25th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). 3. The victor gets to claim the lucky jaded monkey as the prize. Tales have been told of untold wealth and fame that comes with this. The victorious team is allowed to display in any honorary fashion the jaded monkey, the losing teams are forbidden to display it. The losing teams are bestowed the dreaded monkey's paw, which is said to be cursed. People have been known for have very bad luck with this paw! 4. Team captains and Vice Captains are as follows: OCF - Captain: David OCAU - Captain: leroyxx/RETARD/BlueRaven OCN - Captain: zodac/sweffymo EVGA - Captain: Drougnor/Xavier Zepherious/Devdog51 CPC & bit-tech - Captain: coolamasta Hardware Canuks - Captain: chriskwarren/3.0 Charlie TSC! Russia - Captain: [kane]Enforce/BOSUN Tech Power Up - Captain: BUCK NASTY/Bogmali 5. In the event of a close race, a Stanford daily_user_summary.txt file will be the official source for points information. 6. Only team captains are allowed to make changes to rules and will be looking out for any "foul play". We should not do anything that hurts the folding project. This includes but is not limited to, priming WUs and installing clients on machines without proper permission. 7. The official folding names are: OCF - T32monkeys OCAU - Monkey_Bollocks OCN - OCNChimpin EVGA - EVGApes CPC & bit-tech - CustomBitChimps Hardware Canuks - Beavers_Gone_Bananas TSC! Russia - TSCh!mp TechPowerUp! - ChimPowerUp 8. Have fun and keep it positive. You can monitor our progress @ http:chimp_challenge/2012/ To fold for TechPowerUp!: *** Regardless of the client you are using, the team# is 50711 and the Username is ChimPowerUp. 1) Download Fahtracker V2 or if you have a Radeon HD5xxx or newer, download & install FAHClient V7 then proceed to step 4 below. Either client will work with HD2xxx-HD4xxx, just not with the new core. 2) Run the client and go to Setup and select Tracker Settings. Use Quick Team Select to choose TechpowerUp!. Enter ChimPowerUp in the name field. PM Bogmali, Oily17, msgclb, Texbill, or Buck Nasty for the SMP/-bigadv passkey(GPU only folding requires no passkey). 3)Under Client Settings, select the hardware you want to fold with. We will be more than happy to help you set up your client(s). 4)FAHClient V7 works with everything and on everything. Make sure your drivers are up to date. If you are setting up anything but a Radeon HD5xxx or newer, simply follow the Windows (FAH V7) Install Guide 5)For Radeon HD5xxx or newer: Please read completly through this step before continuing. Folding on Radeon cards has been very frustrating due to their low PPD. FAHClient V7 introduces a new core, fahcore_16, for HD5xxx and newer Radeon cards. In order to get the client to request work units for this core, you must configure the GPU slot(s) as shown in this post. (that proceedure is needed if you install the GPU slot without the directions below) But, before you get there, install the client for anything but a GPU slot. SMP or uniprocessor recommended. Then add the GPU slot. Follow the instuctions here EXCEPT when you get to figure 5, before clicking on OK, click on Add under Extra slot options (expert only) and then type client-type in for the name and advanced for the value and then click OK and then OK. Repeat as necessary.The client will start automatically. Do not disable Crossfire! (if applicable) Please post in the F@H Tech Assistance thread if you are having any issues.
