Not sure if I'm just blind and just can't see it if it already exists, but an option to automatically remove duplicate worktodo lines would be good.

From the main menu run the "balance work" which also deals with duplicates. I really should break that feature out into a more obvious thingy.

Or better don't waste your time with breaking it out, instead implement some feature to deal with the different bitlevels. When I did some TF to 80+ bits for LMH i wanted to split the same exponent to different cards, each doing different bitlevels of factoring, to speed the things up, and had to go endless tricks to avoit Misfit removing the "duplicate" exponent every time.

Under the MISC options there is "ignore bit-levels" option to account for your exact condition.

Ha! I told you that you fix the bugs before we detect them!
It is there indeed, only that is called "assess bitlevels as part of blah blah", something with "asses" anyhow. One ass two asses. Neutral.

Thanks a lot, I didn't see it till now. Then, I am waiting for the opportunity to TF many bitlevels of the same exponent again... not planned right now. But soon.

It would not contribute directly to function, but it would be a bit more convenient if MISFIT remembered its screen location from one startup to the next.

No problem. I have added it to my list of features/tweaks for upcoming release.

Minor issue - When starting 15 GPU, I need to use "Assign Work" 15 times and
each assign is like 3 button clicks. It assigns all the work to the first process so
then I need to balance for all GPU to get work.

When misfit has a popup window, it seems to stop assignments.
I have it running on a remote machine which does not have someone
checking the screen everyday. So my GPU have run dry on assignments.

Would be nice if it handled LL assignments for cudaLucas also.

Thanks,

That has been done. I don't know what state of development it is in, but there is a MISFIT for cudaLucas.

Have a look here, in the Downloads.
