  1. @_mat_ Just wanted to give a shout out that Benchmate seems to be working very well and want to thank you for all the effort you've dumped into it. The online submissions seem to work great and that's a plus for sure!! Keep up the good work! ~Jon
  2. My friend, it's been a bad year at my house. 9 months, wife finally landed some part time work. Sold my hot rod 1981 El Camino. Sold my 1997 Escaper 5th wheel camper. Son on and off temp jobs all year. Right now debt outweighs the income, lucky to still have a place to live at this point. 10$ a month I cant even do that much. Tell my personals so there is a clear understanding that this is probably one of the worst times to ask for donations. Only because donations could better be used to people that need it more. Unfortunately, I do not have a patreon account. Nor can I find the strength to swallow my pride. For that, hats off to HWBot for having more balls than myself.
  3. I can do that. Will have to wait till later after work though.
  4. I have included in my recent bad ass submissions on socket 462 the tweaks used in notepad in the screen shots. Is that useful in the submissions then? Or should I just comment on my own subs with this information? Also have screen shots that lead up to the final submission. Should I include those in my submission from now on? Sometimes I have like 9 or more screen shots, probably cant fit them all though....
  5. Cool. I have Socket A on the bench right now. valid.x86.fr/cbpfzc ---- I just want to enjoy the hobby as it is. If you guys want me to tell a mod a tweak, cool. I'm game. Will follow procedure. Thanks for acknowledging my idea and propose a thread. I think something like that would be helpful to encourage new comers when they visit the site. It's like a little bit of sugar to help them get started off. I'm only looking at this from outside to help. Not go circles with it.
  6. The secrets die with our generation and mother fuck the rest of the members. Gotcha noted. Dont expect people to come and tell a mod they found a tweak. That's as laughable as listing the tweaks for each bench. Stalemated.
  7. AGREED!! But the tweaks thing. Is the cheating so big an issue "suddenly" where we would need to actually address this in the fashion that we are? Should have done that 10 years ago when this was popular. Better late then never?? Where you here 10 years ago? What differences from then till now can you see where we can make these improvements?
  8. No, you must have missed my point. To make an even playing field, the rules need to state what's ok to use and what's not. It's not about handing things over. What was it now? Hit run and win?
  9. That wont happen. You know that. The new guys probably dont even know to look. Find buried threads for tips and tricks? Look on forums that dont exist because half of them closed from lack of OC interest? You guys are reaching here.
  10. I'm on the correct team for any tweaks, bios mods and anything in between. Your comment is focused at the new guys not me unfortunately. I dont need to "earn" anything. I've been participating at the bot since beta rev 1.
  11. That was sloppy. For points, I'm not explaining tweaks to any moderators here after being asked for donations. My donations should give me a free pass to bench however the heck I want too.... lol. edit: That was more of a joke in case you missed the lol at the end.
  12. I want to know what the mods know. Cause how the F am I supposed to know which tweak is legal or not? WR cheated? I figured those where heavily moderated and some had a cheek turned for w/e reason. That's not the cheater's fault.
  13. What??!! They want to make it fair, that's how it needs to be done. Show me yours, I show you mine.
  14. Hi Roman! Thank you for the update. 1st, will donate when possible. Maybe not often, maybe not much, but want to help! 2ndly. The small quote above. To be sure people are fully aware, ALL tweaks the moderators know about needs to be listed in the rules in each benchmark including tutorials and pictures if needed. Because this will make a fair playing field. Then the mods and benchers can know the same thing. It would be helpful to everyone. It's not just that they are tweaks, some of these tweaks are secrets of the trade. HWBot needs to be forth coming and honest. If you guys know the tweaks, list them with detail and tutorials so everyone can have the same chance. That is based on the thoughts of just hit run and win. My 2 cents on the matter.
  15. Awesome! Looking forward to the changes. Thank you for all the hard work and patience dealing with people like me! Happy New Years btw. Hope it's a better one for everybody!
  16. @Leeghoofd it sounds like more of a job than a hobby for you. I do not envy your position at this company. I just want to run benchmarks. Copywaza is even too much for my old ass to bother using to eek out 0.0010 seconds. Anyhow. The second it becomes a job for overclockers, like making submissi ok s and filling out forms that take longer than benchmarks, I guess I just enjoy the hobby less at that point.
  17. Take off 120 seconds? That's easy get rid of W10 and run Xp Please rid of hackers and cheaters like you will with certain benchmarks as a result. That's all I ask for.
  18. You know damn well competitive benchmarking did not start with "pressing start" and getting a score. That's for the gamers at UserBenchmark. And perhaps for modern benching, it's the more proper approach to comparing systems. I think HWBot is much more elaborate than this. And then much more difficult to modernize and implement. Would it be nice to have just a HWBot benchmark that differs from the rest? Push start, get a score!! It seems maybe using a bunch of 3rd party benchmarks is a loose loose situation for these modern times.
  19. I'm humble with whatever changes are needed to stop minority cheaters we let stay here. But from my angle, the second one of our team members gets caught for something like that, he will be released from our team immediately and exposed as a cheat.
  20. You could say that for just about every benchmark out there. Numerous tweaks for PiMod for example. Should people disclose the use of TinyXP? At what point is it no longer a dead horse beaten to death with this age old conversation? I'd wager the popularity of the benchmark would have it left in it's place, but I've already had my vote for this year.
