I have seen http://www.boincstats.com/stats/project_graph.php?pr=ps3grid we can see ours stats! That\'s great!

But if i see my member name in the stats, it\'s not the same as my other project.
WHY????

How fix that?

I chekded and for all my other project i use 28282771e28d49a29bcd06eff19b3ce1 and for PS3grid it\'s f1196ae926ce66f8da00717b5cdd1e6c

Thanks for your help

I was just investigating this myself as PS3GRID does not show up in my banner.

The trick about CPID\'s is that hosts share these from project to project, so If Your PS3 is only attached to PS3GRID the CPID will not sync. When you create an account you are assigned a CPID by the project. When you attach to a project the CPID is transfered to the host. When you attach to a second project, then either this CPID gets sent to that project or the host changes and uses the CPID already on that project. Eventually this filters through all projects attached and all your hosts. It works faster if you have one hosts attached to all projects.

So either
A - attach PS3 to another project and get messages no work for platform.
B - attach another host to PS3GRID and get messages no work for platform.
C - Edit the client_state.xml file (if you know what you are doing)

I\'m trying a temporary attach with my PS3 to the project I store my general preferences at to see if it syncs. I think once that happens I will suspend that project. But I will have to watch as the CPID can change from time to time and they may get out of sync again (but I think this is only if you change your email address and/or user name). This can take 24 hours or more and for it to filter back to The stat sites when they retrieve the XML files.

How to edit client_state.xml
shut down all running boinc programs
edit file
look for line like: <cross_project_id>ed0527adc14352fc53cf6fe8b3c906cd</cross_project_id>
replace the 32 digit code with your CPID.
save and exit
restart boinc and this should solve the problem.

I forgot to mention that if you attach to a second project, the project with the latest preferences is going to overwrite the preferences of the other project.

To make sure you use the correct ones, go to the project where you keep your general preferences, select edit and then save, this will change the time on the project and they will become the latest. Then you can try the attach method and those prefs will copy over the older ones.

I\'m not as familiar with linux as windows, but I can install it and make it run boinc.

For file location, that depends on where you put them.

For Windows they are always put in C:\\Program Files\\BOINC unless you chagne the location.

For Linux the files are unpacked whereever the file being unpacked was saved at download, I think. Mine was on the desktop but then I moved it into my \'home\' folder. I have a folder inside my home folder with a long name with ps3grid and or x686_linux in it, I forget the actual name and I\'m not at home now to look. Look inside this folder. I had made a shortcut and called the shortcut runb so I could open the folder without having to type that long name all the time.

Thanks!

I saw that my stats are combined!

I made a change in my file before have seen the change.
Hope no problem!

But after a long search, i found how see these files!!!!! It\'s just hidden files. NIX system hide files a lot of time, don\'t know why, but....

So now problem seem solved
