Aquamark3 HWBOT Wrapper To Be Updated - Submit Your Back-Up Scores Before February 4, 2013!

As you all know, GENiEBEN is working on a new version of the Aquamark3 benchmark wrapper. The development is in the final stages now and we are aiming for a full implementation on February 4, 2013. The new wrapper is fully compatible with the new HWBOT Submission API and will be much more stable than the current version.

From Febuary 4 forward, the old wrapper will no longer be allowed at HWBOT and scores done with the old wrapper will be INVALID. If you have any back-up results that you want to submit, make sure to do it before February 4. I repeat: after this day results with the old wrapper will no longer be accepted at HWBOT! No exceptions!

Would it be possible to get the new "final" wrapper? Uploading does not work then, but atleast scores can be run and uploaded on the 4th :)?

The final version will be available when, ehr, it's ready. GENiEBEN is finishing up the latest details as we speak :).

France Radi says:

France Radi says:

France Wizerty says:

No.

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Will it lower scores like the old wrapper (compared to standalone AM3)?

i think it's the opposite now.

Germany fuzz3l says:

What are the requirements (software related) to run the new wrapper?

LOL

Plz Genie could you tweak all 3DM suite like this by now? :D

United States I.M.O.G. says:

Thanks.

xxbassplayerxx said: Will it lower scores like the old wrapper (compared to standalone AM3)?


Didn't from what I saw in testing.


fuzz3l said: What are the requirements (software related) to run the new wrapper?


Nothing basically. No more .net requirement, if you can run am3, you can run the wrapper.

GENiEBEN says:

Maybe once Im done with the other wrappers.

I.M.O.G. said: Can this be used to submit now?


Not for now.

xxbassplayerxx said: Will it lower scores like the old wrapper (compared to standalone AM3)?


Minimal error margin, if any, but for some people it will actually give better scores due Affinity/Process Priority and exe rename being default.

fuzz3l said: What are the requirements (software related) to run the new wrapper?


Like IMOG stated, if you can run Aquamark then you can run the wrapper.

Canada Vinster says:

any more news on the release of the new wrapper? Vin

United States trekky says:

ya news would be nice
its the 3rd here

United States I.M.O.G. says:

I'm trying to bench tonight, so having the wrapper would be good. In the future an overlap between versions would be ideal.

GENiEBEN says:

Wasn't possible without having two separate 'Aquamark' rankings and then merging them. Shouldn't be a problem with subsequent versions of the new wrapper.

United States I.M.O.G. says:

I save results then submit... If I could run it tonight, I could submit once the new wrapper is accepted. If I run on the old wrapper tonight, by the time my session is done the saved result could be no good?

United States trekky says:

who knows the news on this post is out of date. maybe behide?

Belgium Massman says:

I'll write an updated news post once the transition is done. The validation process is very different, so it takes a while to get it ready :).

K404 says:

I hope today goes according to plan... looking forward to a shiny, bug-free download! :D

GENiEBEN says:

Active, have fun and report any bugs by PM.

K404 says:

First bug reported :D 26 minutes. A new HWBot record? :D (I'm kidding.... so far, I have been really happy with how the update has been handled)
