Adding neoscrypt to multi algo profiles & Nicehash/Westhash profiles.

 

Short Version: 

To add neoscrypt to the nicehash profiles you must select (y) when prompted to overwrite the existing cgminer.nhmulti.conf and cgminer.whmulti.conf and dont forget to run changebtcaddress at the end to update your address.

 

DETAILED VERSION:

 

1. run pimpupdate from ssh / console and install the Neoscrypt profiles & sgminer5-develop upgrades.

2a. to mine only neoscrypt, switch to the new Sgminer5-Neoscrypt-Develop profile in poolmanager and update your pools either with poolmanager or by editing /opt/ifmi/cgminer.neoscrypt.conf

2b. to mine neoscrypt on the sgminer5-multi-develop profile you’ll want to add the following to the profiles section of /opt/ifmi/cgminer.multi.conf as the last profile.

{
“name” : “neoscrypt”,
“algorithm” : “neoscrypt”,
“gpu-engine” : “0”,
“gpu-memclock” : “0”,
“gpu-threads” : “1”,
“thread-concurrency” : “0”,
“intensity” : “12”
}

(Don’t forget to add a comma to the preceding } from the old last profile!)
note that for 280x cards intensity 15 is best, or xintensity 3.

now you can add a pool like so:

{
“name” : “PiMP Testing/Donations – Neoscrypt #2”,
“url” : “stratum+tcp://east01.us.trademybit.com:8880”,
“user” : “pimp.neoscrypt”,
“pass” : “donate”,
“profile “: “neoscrypt”
}

2c. To mine neoscrypt on nicehash/westhash with automatic profit switching, you’ll want to only use the -develop profiles as vanilla sgminer5 does not contain neoscrypt and will not function correctly after the new nh/whmulti conf files are installed. During the pimpupdate installation you will be prompted to overwrite cgminer.nhmulti.conf and cgminer.whmulti.conf If you select yes you will have the newest nicehash config files that include support for neoscrypt and updated password strings. Be sure to do changebtcaddress <mybtcaddy> after this is done so that you will be mining to your own wallet.

Manually adding neoscrypt to existing nh/wh conf files: and add a pool / profile like the following to your /opt/ifmi/cgminer.whmulti.conf or /opt/ifmi/cgminer.nhmulti.conf

in the profiles section:
{
“name” : “neoscrypt”,
“algorithm” : “neoscrypt”,
“gpu-engine” : “0”,
“gpu-memclock” : “0”,
“gpu-threads” : “1”,
“thread-concurrency” : “0”,
“intensity” : “12”
}

(Don’t forget to add a comma to the preceding } from the old last profile!)
note that for 280x cards intensity 15 is best, or xintensity 3.
{
“name” : “Westhash Autoswitcher – Neoscrypt”,
“url”: “stratum+tcp://stratum.westhash.com:4341”,
“user”: “1JiPutZrDBLW4YwXY5GbwgLJrpAQTMUUir”,
“pass”: “f0=0;f2=0;f3=5.5;f4=4;f5=500;f6=3.5;f7=16;f8=0.3”,
“profile”: “neoscrypt”,
“priority” : “15”
},

or for nicehash:
{
“name” : “Westhash Autoswitcher – Neoscrypt”,
“url”: “stratum+tcp://stratum.westhash.com:4341”,
“user”: “1JiPutZrDBLW4YwXY5GbwgLJrpAQTMUUir”,
“pass”: “f0=0;f2=0;f3=5.5;f4=4;f5=500;f6=3.5;f7=16;f8=0.3”,
“profile”: “neoscrypt”,
“priority” : “16”
},

remember to update the username and also make sure your pool priority numbering is correct for your setup!

Also, all password fields must be updated adding the ending ;f8=0.3 so that nicehash/westhash will auto switch to neoscrypt!
