What is a pool?
A pool is a collection of miners like you that all work together so you can earn more frequently. XMRGUI can use any cryptocurrency that uses the Cryptonight algorithm but you can find a list of Monero pools here: http://moneropools.com/
When do I get paid?
Each pool has its own minimum payout before your coins get transferred to your wallet. Try looking on the pool’s website or dashboard to find out what that minimum is. Most pools also have a support chat where you can talk to other miners about common questions.
What is an XMR Address?
An XMR Address is the address of your wallet. In order to mine Monero(XMR) or any other coin, you’ll need a wallet. If you’re using Monero, try just searching google for “Monero Wallet” to get your address. When you input your address, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a XMR address, it can be any address that uses the cryptonight-based coin you’re mining for.
What should my port be set at?
Each pool will have its own port list. Most pools use different ports based on the speed of your machine. Usually, these ports are something like 1111, 3333, 5555, 7777, or 9999. Try checking your pool’s website for the appropriate port to use.
What pool password do I use?
Most pools use “x”. Depending on the pool, some might allow you to use a unique password to identify your computer in the case that you have more that one computer mining. This lets you track the individual hashrate of each computer on the pool’s website.
Why isn’t my hashrate showing up?
Try waiting 15-30 seconds so XMRGUI can get the correct hashrate. If you still don’t see a hashrate after that, your video card may be out of date or you need to try manual configuration(See answer below).
How do I manually configure my GPU/CPU?
You can manually set your CPU threads by selecting “Manual CPU”. To choose a more in-depth configuration for both your CPU and GPU, select “Config Override” and then press the “Config Override” button.
*Hint: If your GPU is performing poorly or crashing, try setting a higher value on “bSleep” and “bFactor” and then a lower setting on “Threads” *
Why after selecting “Enable on Idle” don’t I see any graphs or hashrate?
XMRGUI still isn’t quite ready for the Enable on Idle feature, there are some issues with it. I’m currently working on resolving them, but until I do, no output will be displayed while mining as an idle task.
I’m getting the error: “System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘CefSharp.Core.dll’” How can I fix this?
