Why my GPU plotter stuck
gui_scrof last edited by haitch
I have a problem when I try to plot with GPU, I can't generate a nonce after the 7168 nonces, I don't know what is the problem
this is the output of my cmd.exe :
C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\gpu_plotter>gpuPlotGenerator generate direct D:/Burst/plots/959053473154164634_412288000_4096000_8192
GPU plot generator v4.0.3

and this my devices settings:

If someone can help me to know why my GPU plotter stuck at 7168 nonces, please tell me.
@gui_scrof this is normal for direct mode - it builds the file, which depending on capacity can take a day or more, then fills it in with the actual plotting.
However, @cryo has released a new version that does not have the big initial delay. Grab the new version and start again.

I also had similar issues with Direct mode that it would just sit there at ~0.25% for quite a long time (apparently writing all 0s to the plot file, instead of instantly creating a dummy file like CPU plotting does)... So, all the time it is hung there, it's literally doing nothing but writing 0's to a dummy file before it even starts the plotting process of generating nonces. The new version (v4.1.1) should address that issue, and worked MUCH better for me.
