    Hi,

    I am just raising awareness on the Folding at Home project and the fact that there is a Unity3D team for it! If you are bored because the quarantine and want to help potentially finding a cure for COVID19 (or other diseases) using your computer, consider joining the team :D

    Link to the team: https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/236357

    You just need to let it it run for a bit. There are a lot of people folding on the GPUs and sometimes it takes a bit to find a WU :).

    What I usually do is after 5 minutes if it can't find a WU, I will unpause/pause it. Sometimes it works after that

    There is also a F@H official discord if you are looking for more specific help: https://discord.gg/cxT4St

    Hey @mgear I was having the same problem but I was able to start getting WUs again by setting a flag in my GPU client.

    Under advanced config, select GPU slot, click "edit", and go to to "extra slot options" and add flag:

    client-type advanced

    Restart client and now I've been getting solid work on my GPU again. Annotation 2020-05-06 132719.jpg
