After 24 hours it drops to 3x bonus blocks, then after another 24 to 2x - so I'll keep solo mining unless network hash rate goes up by too much, or the ocn coin (can't remember what it was called) gets released.
Figure I'd try a little solo mining, never done it before but I tried to follow the instructions under the official threat on bitcointalk... Hoping someone might just look over it and give there input thanx..
Now I made the earthcoin.conf and placed it in /AppData/Roaming/EarthCoin...earthcoin.conf:
This is the bat file I created for it:
timeout /t 30
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o localhost:15678 -u User -p PW -d 1
How do I know if it is working, mean the Difficulty says 212M.. This look right?
Also if I find a block should it be directly credited to my wallet I guess?
Honestly, that looks very odd. My difficulty is 7 right now - I just altered http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php?topic=389.0 for earthcoins. No need for all those nodes (not sure why they're there) - here's my earthcoin.conf:
It's that simple, I thought I'd set it up wrong. Went to bed not bothered to change it, woke up to see it works perfectly and is raking in the EAC. No need for nodes etc, and I don't want to use pools because payouts seem to be a lot lower in all the pools I can see. Though I wouldn't recommend solo-mining with less than 1.5MH/s, my block-time is averaging 90mins with 2.6MH/s and much longer than that would bring in too much variance for my liking. That's just a personal preference though.
Edit: if lots of people are mining on absurdly high difficulties, that'd explain why I'm "getting more" EAC than I should be judging from hashrates. To me it looks like there's maximally 300MH/s on the whole network, whereas some pools say they have over 500MH/s.
