Hi there,

through the recent trouble of downloading, I somehow got a collection of all necessary files downloaded on various computers.
Now putting all of them into the boinc dir, it still won't start to work by itself...
Can anyone asist me in getting it to run?
Here are the files I got (and I'm sure they are okay):
blender_4.14_windows_intelx86.exe
blender_4.14_windows_intelx86.exe.zip
122in0.zip

I also got some WUs, or at least I supose they are ...
The filename is: ses0000000122_frm0000000003.wu.txt

Now how do I get Boinc to work on this project?
Can I run it manually, too (like seti used to work)?

Thanks for your help!

Theoretically you could edit your client state file to tell it that the files are indeed downloaded. I wouldn't advice you to do that though...

No, that really doesn't look like an easy way of getting it running :(

Any chance to crunch the wu's manually, just for test purposes??
How could I do that? Can the rendering be seen while it works?

I know, I'm so annoyingly impatient ;)

Not really, sorry.

Can the rendering be seen while it works?

Nope. No screensaver yet and even when the screensaver is made the first thing it is going to be used for is to display previously finished work instead of the work which is currently rendering (due to technical stuff that makes it hard to display it "live" - hard but not impossible).
