Can't see my protein?!

Postby GalaxyDuster » Sun Feb 02, 2014 4:03 pm

Hi there:

I'm having an issue seeing my protein on FAH. All I see is the world map. I run FAH 7.3.6, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1, NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX, newest driver installed. I have it set to let the program select what mode it wants (I tried it without that, too). I even added the FAH directory from c:/program files/x86 to the list of programs in my NVIDIA program. I run an Intel Xeon CPU X3470 at 3 GHZ with 4 cores (8 logical cores) and GPU. I have 4 GB of RAM. I rebooted the computer, rebooted the program... nothing. I can see that my work units are all running and finishing just fine. I realize I don't NEED to see the protein, but I kind of miss seeing it. This is very frustrating... any help would be greatly appreciated!!! :? :x :e?:

Could you post your log file? That may provide information needed to help see what is happening. You will find the log file in the FAH data directory.

Also, not all WU's provide the necessary data to display the protein being worked on. In the case of the newest projects the client does need an update to display the WU, that should be included in a future release.

Well, here's what it's working on today... still see nothing but the world map (again, not that I mind, but I do miss seeing what I'm working on).

Welcome to the F@H Forum GalaxyDuster,

Could you please tell us if the FAHViewer isn't showing the protein for the CPU Slot or the GPU Slot? Can you see a Demo Protein in either of the slots or not?

Oh my goodness, I didn't even realize I could choose between them. I can see it on the CPU... I turned GPU up to full, but I see no visual of the protein on that slot. It says it is 86% through that work unit (on GPU), and says on the bottom left:

Snapshots: 0 of 0
Connection: connected
Protein: Loading
Slot: 0

On the CPU it says:

Snapshots: 1 of 1
Connection: connected
Protein: Live
Slot: 1

Any ideas why it would show one and not the other? Thanks! You've been a great help already!!! :)

For the CPU Slot, the FahCore_a3 is passing information (snapshots which in your case is 1 of 1 and over time, it may increase) to the FAHViewer so it is showing up as Live.

For the GPU Slot, FahCore_11 will need to pass information (snapshots which in your case is 0) for it to display. I suggest that you leave the FAHViewer open for several minutes to see if it works or not.
