Hi Heffed

Graphics are not expected to work if you install as a service.
There are also some applications (science apps) whose graphics routines are not capable of interacting with the new BOINC core and the graphics for these apps are also not expected to work until the projects release an updated application.

I'm sorry, but I do not have a definite list of which projects are affected, but I know that the SAH app does work.

BTW, and thus far...in the versions I tried in the then, development branch (4.66, maybe 4.62...but don't remember there) to 4.62 graphics did work (at least on machines I've tried) in SETI@home, and also worked in Einstein@home. Predictor doesn't show graphics, but might not have graphics to show... I'm not sure about the other projects...

Thanks ralic, I didn't install as a service. I installed as a single user. (recommended by the installer) I can't get graphics for any project. (those with screensavers of course)

I also added my comments to the existing bug Ageless started. :)

btw, I installed as service and cannot see the graphics ... but there's another simple bug: when you are in the manager/projects and you click on a project there is the option "Web sites: BOINC / Project". Now if the window is too small, on mouseover (over the links) the frame scolls up so one cannot click on it until one enlarges the window ...

Greetings, Santas little helper

Same here, no graphics, laggy

Same here, no graphics, laggy interface. Benchmark performance drop (~5000 , ~4000@4.25. And.. bad color choice&no customisation options.

Installed it on 2 of my computers. The benchmark results are much lower than previously for some reason... My Intel rig seems unaffected by this and crunches units the same as before. My A64 rig is a different story, I downgraded it back to v.4.19 because it was gonna take more than 2 and half hours more than usual to crunch a unit... I don't know if it's just me or what.

There is no graphics! ( CC

There is no graphics! ( CC 4.25 )

"show graphic" or screensaver for EAH-WU's don't work!!!
(it is only EAH graphics what isn't shown, others even LHC are shown!!)

Why do you advise this CC?

Stable version (recommended)

Or how I can get the graphics?
(since 12.07.04 on pirates@home posted, then in several foras,..--no successfully answer..:-()

that's why I downgraded this box to 4.19. (more credits and graphic are shown- HeHeHe)

Hi Bruce
I posted this behaviour in several foras, beginning on last Dez. at pirates@home where we are testing "compass". No reaction on my questions ; and then even worser.

Because the CC's are "ROM's-World", I posted this in Seti-Forum directly addressed to ROM Walton: The reaction was that other users found that I'm an offender and critisizer, so no substantial answer or replies on this.

since CC 4.58 there is this problem!
