I'm having some problems with it missing a lot of hands (~50%), which I think is due to having an old computer (p2-266). cpu usage is continuely at 100%. I've tried messing around with the process priority and delay settings, but haven't been able to get it working much better (tried increasing and decreasing both of these). Do you have any suggestions for improving it, or is my computer just too slow?
Yes, the way it works then it is likely to miss hands if system is old or is under strain and altering the delay or the priority wont help if its just running out of cycles. It may be possible to look for memory segments which have a certain 'footprint' (address range, size, read/write access, ...); meaning not all memory is polled continuously, but I haven't looked into this much yet.
I just don't want to spend ages on this, if eventually it gets banned or blocked, but if I get time then I will look into this, as even on my system (1.4GHz/512MB which is fairly old by today's standards) it eats alot of CPU time.
I would try making sure all windows are minimized/off-screen and possibly try to reduce the graphics load as much as possible (possibly try using 16/8bit colour while mining).
If I can think of any other ideas that may help I will post back
