For those of you who are folding with PCs, you can increase your production and therefore, the team's production.

Add -advmethods to the end of the command line for both the console and the GUI version. The GUI version needs to be modified in the shortcut file. This will cause those machines to use different methods to work on the proteins and do it much faster. I believe that it will require the download of another, specialised core to do Gromacs processing.

For those of us on Macs, we'll get there.

On the subject of PC folding, I was looking to install a script that acts similarly to the command line in X. I need one that runs lowest priority and that I don't need an admin password to install. It's gotta run in the background, unseen.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks,
Dan

Where do we get this specialized core?

When you add the -advmethods flag to the command line, it should automatically download it just as it automatically downloaded the Tinker core you're most likely using now.

How do you add it into a shortcut? I click on properties, the edit the line with the target, but it won't accept it.

When you came in and took my ideas, you forgot to grab the furniture, the Tibook, and the car keys. Next time you come taking ideas from me or anyone else in our forum, cite it.
Of course, you could always just join Team MacNN and then you'd get free access to all of our secret information.

I don't know if it does anything, but -advmethods is a valid argument for the Mac command line (which affects the GUI as well)

Ouch, Scott.

Is this not public knowledge, or was it a "secret" feature of the F@H core that its developers told no-one about and you discovered?

No, it's well known.
I'm annoyed that a post very similar to one I made appears shortly after, made by a member who has been visiting our forum.
Notice that I had no objection to "What MacNN does to increase production" because that was quoted, and linked to where it came from. I have no problem with ideas being shared, what I don't appreciate is when stuff is repeated that is pretty obvious to be taken from somewhere else in a very similar context. Besides, I'm in a really bad mood right now :rolleyes:

Thanks for the clarification. I can't speak for the person who posted the original message, but I'm pretty sure it would have been cited if it was taken from MacNN.

Hope you cheer up soon. :)

Ya, this does nothing anyway. You end up getting a low point protein, and it takes just as long to process as the other ones. It's a waste of time.

It's true that I should have put a reference to all my hints:

I have tried it and I am not impressed. The WU's are worth far less, and they seem to take a similar time to run... I am switching my machines that I tested it on back...

I found the same results. Not worth the time at all.
