2^64  189
I found 2 large primes with coefficients (2^64  189) then 000000 (like 500,000 rep units) followed by a 1.
Was a long time ago though.

[B]P1174253 [/B]was proven prime using [B]PFGW [/B]on Christmas eve 2022.
Please see the attached screenshots and the files used to run the proof. The proof testing was done by placing the following 3 files in the PFGW folder and running the batch file on a windows system. [B]ETP100A1runproof.bat[/B] (Batch file) [B]ETP110Apfgwprime.txt[/B] (helper file) [B]ETP120Ab.txt[/B] (Candidate to test) The decimal integer can be generated in [B]PARI/GP[/B] by the following code, however the screen buffer will run out while "printing" the 1174253 decimal digits of the integer. You can insteat use the "write" command to print the entire digits to a file. [CODE]k = [1, 1, 1, 2, 5, 9, 6, 79, 16, 219, 580, 387, 189, 7067, 1803, 6582, 31917, 18888, 20973, 132755, 11419, 50111]; q = 2; for(i=1, #k, q = k[i]*(q1)*q+1); print("\n",q,"\n"); \\\\\\ [/CODE] The file [B]P1174253.txt[/B] contains the decimal integer. Thank you for your time. [url]https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=134690[/url] Credits and thanks to [B]George, Mark, PFGW and PARI/GP[/B]. :smile:

I think i have an unusual setup. Please see the attached screenshots of the next iteration in progress.
FTR and in the unlikely case, anyone would find it useful: * I have a windowsguest VirtualBox virtual machine on a 16 core Ryzen 9 desktop. * I use one instance of PARIGP to continuously sieve a given krange using gcd * Multiple instances of PARIGP read remaining k's using the system command, generate a PFGW short PRP script and invoke PFGW using the system command and move to next remaining k when done * I have a series of DOS batch files which automate the above processes. Thank you for your time. :smile: 
I noticed that prime when it appeared at Caldwell's list. It seems to be constructed like Euclid numbers but modified with that list of k's. How were these values decided?

Hi bur,
1st value of small Prime q (2 in this case) is a random choice. Every k is the smallest value that will yield a Prime for each iteration. This way, all the Prime factors of N1 (for all iterations) are known as long as all k’s are small enough to be fully factored.

No, I’m not. I have tried a N+1 version and a twin Prime version, but I decided to concentrate on the above version. Anyone is welcome to pursue their own attempts.

Please see attached a [B]pfgwprime.log[/B] file which can be used as a helper file (editing required) for twin prime search (the smaller TwinPrime not required for the helper file), [B]iterating on the larger twin prime[/B]. The largest I found are [B]3049 dd[/B]. It's abandoned, so anyone is welcome to continue if they wish. :smile:
