    The Gaming Masters' Dedicated (.10, the old one) now runs Folding@home to use up otherwise wasted resources.

    You can contribute to F@H by downloading it from the Stanford website: Clicky

    When you setup F@H please set "Team Number" to 158726

    If you have a high-end GPU we urge you to use the GPU2 client of F@H

    Re: Folding@home

    We don't really want to build a reputation on a server we could lose at any time in the near future, Folding@home is a good way of using resources until a decision is made on what to do with .10
  4. Re: Folding@home

    Actually l4d servers are a fucking good idea - people don't care about IP addresses with them anyway - all they care about is the server being mod-free (at least from a gameplay perspective) and what host banner is shown.

    We can keep folding@home running too - it only uses 1 of the 4 cores :)

    Re: Folding@home

    Ooops, i forgot to set it to four core, but l4d servers will be fine. :D
  6. Re: Folding@home

    Make sure you have +sv_allow_lobby_connect_only 0 +sv_lan so I can connect with my ûber cracked version of this game hehe ... highlight=

    Tested and working with players that have the retail version. I will be buying it when I get my salaries paid out, crashes like shit and it's hard to find servers >.<

    Re: Folding@home

    I used to do a lot of DC myself, but then for D2OL and for a dutch team ofcourse :)

    (In D2OL the dutch team (Dutch Power Cows) is on #1 and for myself I'm on #12)

    For F@H they are #2 now.

    Anyways, have fun folding guys!

    Re: Folding@home

    am I just the only one who has no idea what the hell this program is/does?
  9. Re: Folding@home

    Looks a lot like a 3D protein/molecular modelling/exploring program for biochemists. :mrgreen:

    Re: Folding@home

    No you are not.

    In short: This kind of software (and there are many more variaties out there) use your unused CPU power to do some kind of scientific calculation. Some projects are for finding cures/medicine structures against diseases, others fold proteins, and others are looking for outer space life. Also some are/were try to find some new prime numbers.

    See, lots of good stuff :mrgreen:

    (but also good for your relation ship with your energy supplier 0.o )

    Re: Folding@home

    Could it be, that it is this client, that is laging down the servers since 2 weeks now ?! xD

    GM is becoming famous, for it's server cleanin' up lags, ya know ?! :mrgreen:

    Re: Folding@home

    Nope, this runs on the old dedi. (Not recently)

    The lag on the old dedi might be because dark is on RDP alot while developing his scripts.

    And a sheer amount of TCP connections to the dedi. (From the servers., stats pages etc etc)

    Re: Folding@home

    "Hu" (i would say, it comes from the old idea, the admin is using the server for extreme porn leeching via Bittorrent sometimes xD)..... well, to be ontopic: I am allready @ Folding@Home with one of my nVidia GPU via my favourite german Hardware website, which runs an own team ..... we are at #42 in the worldwide team stats, and still are geting higher ^^ Look for "PC Games Hardware" in the ranking ;)

    -> Hundreds of german enthusiast-gamers with their Teraflop-performing GPU's really have some impressive computing power xD
