Hi there,

in the past I used to get a screensaver 'movie' when running a Leiden calc of bouncing atoms onto a sheet of atoms but after returning to the number crunching fest the movies seem to have gone?

Is there a file that I need to dowload? or is it something that isn't done anymore?

Adrie.

Nope; the newer BOINC clients do not support old-style graphics showing the atoms. Changing to the new style graphics is a bit of a rewrite of the application and very time consuming+error prone. It will not happen soon I'm afraid. Using BOINC is (in experience) a bit of a moving target, the developers add new features not always backwards compatible.

Oh shurks.

Well, I guess that's the price we have to pay for progress.

Many thanks for your response.
