Z-ENEMY 2.00 From: Dk & Enemy (z-enemy) NEW

This version includes a new way to manage and monitor the miner.

[Image: ?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.discordapp.com%2Fat...g9Dn72hLMg]

New features:
- Added new HTTP JSON API (see json_api_help.txt for the details), available at port 4067 by default
- Added web control panel with real-time monitoring and charts. 
The UI is responsive and should be looking well on most mobile phones and tablets.

Other changes:
- The miner informs about API servers (both Telnet and HTTP) being started
- You can now disable both servers with --api-bind=0 and --api-bind-http=0 respectively
- Minor bugfixes and stability improvements

Notes:
- For HTTP server --api-allow command line option isn't having any effect (for now?)

Windows:
Cuda: 10.0; 9.2; 9.1 - https://mega.nz/#F!zZUHWShC!Z7WVzMeFhKIm2CNakx1_8w

Z-ENEMY VER 1.10 (PUBLIC)

For Windows (Cuda 9.1)
zealot/enemy-1.10 (z-enemy) From: Dk & Enemy

Fixed compatibility issues that resulted in performance degradation with some non-yiimp pools. Now you'll see the expected hashrate on them (suprnova).

Kernels speed improvements : (1.09a vs 1.10) +1-2% total (all algos) and (1.09b vs 1.10) +1-2% for x16r &x16s.

- Support & impove new algo : Tribus (-a tribus) , recommended intensity for Tribus 20-21. +5% speed vs 1.09b ( Service release)


First time or troubleshooting x16:
- First time users - ver. 1.12 works on Cuda 9.1&9.2 and it is recommended to make sure you've updated your NVIDIA drivers. You can find drivers here ver., 398+++
- Next important thing is intensity. We recommend intensity -19 at first, however if your PC has 8GB or more, fast SSD, and big swap file on it you may use -20/21.
- X16r algo is very wild and eratic. *Very important* Make sure to have enough power reserve on PSU. Please be sure you have a minimum 20% headroom on your PSU or set your PL on 70-80% usage.
- Using +core and +mem is useful but, use no OC at first until you verify stability. 


Performance and fine tuning x16: 
- This release z-enemy 1.12 is reported to be more stable when it using higher PL (90-110%) and +core and +memory overclocking, feel free to experiment with it.
- Updating drivers can provide more gains
- Recommended intensity is 20, set 21 only if you know what you are doing. ( 16GB RAM or/and good SWAP file on SSD) Use caution
- Recommended memory 0 or +
- Recommended core +50+150 ( 1800-1900MHz 1080 Ti)
- Overclock slowly and allow plenty of time to verify stability (12-24hrs) before making anymore adjustments. x16r is a very chaotic algorithm so just because it works for 1 hr doesn't mean you can't crash over longer time. Sometimes hash order can lead to 2000+mhz and crash system. Keep in mind – overclocking is always at your own risk!
- Yiimp pools recommend manual diff (-p d=16) - for small farms or (-p d=48 ) - for good farms like 5-6 1080 Ti If you need to name your rigs as well as set diff you may try -p rigname,d=16

Diff x16 can be calculated by mutliplying the following:
Number of 1060's multiplied by 3-4
Number of 70ti's or 80's multiply by 4-8
Number of 80ti's multiply by 6-12

example: If you have 3 1060's then diff would be 9-12
if you have 8 70ti's then your diff would be 48-96


Dev fee:
- low dev fee 1% 
- Dev fee will start randomly when miner is first started. After 1% of time mined then automatically switches back to user pool.

Information about x16: 

Every block contain 16 random algos.

All algos have FastMedium and Slow speeds so depending on the order and what speeds they are will determine your hashrate at any given time.

Fast: Blake (Blk),Bmw512(Bmw), Keccak (Kck), Skein(Ske), Shabal(Shb), Sha512(Sha)
Medium: Jh512 (Jh5), Luffa (Luf), Cube(Cub), Shavite (Shv), Fugue (Fug), Whirlpool (Wrl)
Slow: Groestl (Gro), Simd (Smd), Echo (Ech), Hamsi (Ham)

Example:
Block 181085, difficulty 20228.532 
Hashorder: EchFugBmwShaJh5FugShvEchSmdBmwHamWrlJh5KckSkeHam

Means first algo is Slow Echo (Ech)> next Medium Fugue (Fug) > …> last Hamsi (Ham). The more fast algos in a block is what drives miner speed to the moon! (more MH)

FAQ:

I cannot start miner, it says I'm missing msvcr120.dll?
Download and reinstall drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx

My miner crashed - cuda error in funk `cuda_check_cpu_setTarget` why ?
This error is caused by overclocking, lower your GPU and VRAM clocks.

Latest drivers recommended?
Yes however, sometimes a new driver can cause an issue and using a previous version may work better. You will need to verify. We recommend at least NVIDIA drivers of 390+++ or 398.xx

What is restart-fix.reg in windows download folder?
This file will fix pop-up window and lets the miner restart after crash. Run once.

How many GPU's can I run?
We have confirmed reports on 19 cards

Is there an easy way to auto restart miner if it crashes? 
Yes, check our samples *.cmd file in windows build. Like:
Confusedtart
z-enemy -a phi -o stratum+tcp://pool bsod pw:6667 -u LQCifDiNV_YOUR_WALLET_F3CUqZJBa75123 -p x
goto start

Does z-enemy 1.12 not support api?
Yes, try --api-remote and/or --api-allow= ( simple 0/0 )

z-enemy no supports ccminer.conf default value loading from .conf file ?
z-enemy support config.json



RE: Zealot/Enemy (z-enemy) NVIDIA GPU miner (ver 2.0) - Devids - 08-21-2019

I think mining is not actual at this moment. Investing is more profitable
