    Ability to manually alter/synchronise the reported "Points generated"

    Post by bodger319 on Wed Dec 21, 2011 10:51 am

    Feature Name: Ability to manually alter/synchronise the reported "Points generated" which is shown on the "View Stats" page

    What does this feature do: Allow the user to correct for discrepancies in the reported "Points generated" arising from factors such as completed SMP WUs not yet qualifying for the bonus points.
    See following thread
    http://fahtracker.forumotion.com/t276-gpu-tracker-question-discrepancy

    Why would this feature be useful to be included in the tracker ? -
    1) Accuracy of the results being displayed thereby enabling the user to better find their position within team-lists.
    2) Resetting of the "Points generated" to the correct value should the software have to be reinstalled after an OS crash or upgrade to a new computer.
    3) Resetting of the "Points generated" to the correct value should the Stats for CPU/SMP/GPU be inadvertently deleted due to user error.

    Unfortunately I don't see this ever happening. First of all, what if the user has multiple computers folding and wants to know how many points each one is generating? If you sync with the main stats this isn't going to work.

    If you want to manually correct for bonus points deviation you can edit BONUSPOINTS.txt in the STATS\SMP directory. The total base credit for WUs is handled by multiplying the number of WUs completed by their base credit.

    Also, at this time I am not actively developing the Tracker. This means I won't be adding new features. I will only make changes if absolutely required. (IE: V6 client update requires some change to the Tracker to work correctly)

    Of course, you are welcome to download the sourcecode and implement it yourself:

    Many thanks for the pointer. Worked a treat.
