Flags and their meaning/use :
From EOC Forums Here
What are flags?
Flags are special instructions given to the client at launch.
You can see the complete list HEREHow do I use flags?
Append them to the target line in the shortcut that launches your folding client.Which flags should I use?
AMD Single processor rig: -advmethods -forceSSE -verbosity 9
Intel Single processor rig: -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9
AMD Multiprocessor rig: -local -advmethods -forceSSE -verbosity 9
Intel MP/HT rig: -local -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9-advmethods
: "Request to be assigned any new Cores or work units." In effect, you get gromacs most of the time. You will still get the occasional Tinker.
In April of 2004, the points awarded for many WUs, including tinkers, were increased. As a result, there is better ppd parity between tinkers and gromacs and the -advmethods flag now provides less benefit than it once did. In fact, some folders no longer use it.-forceSSE
: "On machines with an AMD processor, Core_78 gives priority to 3DNow over SSE -- this overrides that." NOTE: AMD TBird processors do NOT support SSE.-forceasm
: "Instruct the core to use SSE/3DNow assembly instructions if possible, even if it has previously made the determination that the machine may not be handling this well."
: Sets the level of output detail (0=Least 9=Most) that is written to the log file
Adding Flags in Windows :
Left click, 'Start/programs/Folding@Home'
click, 'Folding@home 4' and select (left click) 'Properties,
In the box to the right of 'Target
' it will say (Assuming you installed to the C-Drive)
You need to add your flags to the right of that . There should be a space before each subsequent entry i.e. it should look like:
"C:\Program Files\Folding@Home\winFAH.exe" -advmethods -forceasm -forceSSE -verbosity 9
Depending on which flags you use.
Adding Flags to Other Operating Systems :
Fraid i can't help there, you'll have to speak to the clever guys on this forum.
Hope this is of some use.
