[email protected] is now over one month old! To celebrate this milestone, I present a new research focus; the panorama project.

If you were here during beta-testing, you might have received a very early version of panorama tasks, and the eagle-eyed among you may have seen the application details on the server status page.

The panorama app is a CUDA-only app for Linux and Windows with an Nvidia driver version of 418.96 or higher.

This project attempts to find the world seed of the iconic panorama image which appeared in the background of the main menu of Minecraft between 2011 and 2018. The first phase of this project will only last a few days, and we shall update you with their progress in the coming weeks.



Right now, the application is quite substantial. Unlike the OpenCL applications for the Kaktwoos project, if you allow BOINC to run tasks always; you may experience some stuttering or lag in your desktop environment while running these tasks. These tasks do not have checkpointing support, but run in around 1 hour on an average host to mitigate the majority of lost cycles.

As always, you can change which projects of which you decide to participate in your user preferences.

Let us know if you have any questions, and as always join the discussion over on the Discord server.

For no obvious reason, my Windows 10 computer has stopped being able to fetch these tasks. It's requesting work, but none are being sent. Nothing changed on this end (that I'm aware of) between earlier, when I was able to get tasks, and now.

The server status page says there's plenty of panorama tasks.

Just a note - I hope you are keeping separate totals (per user) for each application type. That will allow for different badges (which you SAID you were going to implement :) ) per application. Pardon me if you've already considered this aspect of credit accumulation. (After all, it's not like I have some ulterior motive :) )

It looks like the server is serving again, so whatever you did, thank you!

specify the minimum application requirements - GPU model, memory size
while I saw continuous errors on GTX 650 (1024MB) driver: 451.67 and GTX 1050 (1999MB) driver: 440.82
and normal work on models GTX 1070 (4095MB) driver: 445.75 and GTX 970 (4095MB) driver: 441.20

PS it is bad that the driver 418.67 does not fit - the number was just a little short ;o)

The panorama app is a CUDA-only app for Linux and Windows with an Nvidia driver version of 418.96 or higher.
Plan class says 418.39, so do check you have the correct driver both sides.

changed since it was posted
first got a warning
17-Jul-2020 17:01:59 [minecrafthome] NVIDIA GPU: Upgrade to the latest driver to use all of this project's GPU applications

then I was able to receive and complete the task (driver 418.67)


---
[edit]

I couldn't start the task at 650
CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 650 (driver version 451.67, CUDA version 11.0, compute capability 3.0, 1024MB, 947MB available, 100 GFLOPS peak)

error immediately after start
GPUassert: the launch timed out and was terminated (code 702) grass_crack.cu 654
