BAM assists you in creating and managing your BOINC project accounts and helps you with setting preferences, joining or creating teams, connecting your computers to projects, and much more.
Whether you're a new or an existing BOINC user, BAM will help you get the most out of BOINC.
If you are new to BOINC, you can start BOINC right here and create your BAM! account. Just enter your information on the registration page and after activating the account you can start with selecting the projects you want to support. The account information you use for BAM! will be used to create accounts for you at your chosen projects.
Download the BOINC software (necessary) from here, install it and attach it to BAM! (instructions). You are into science now!
A step by step instruction is at the bottom of this page.
If you are an existing user then the projects where you already have an account will be imported into BAM! when you create a BAM! account. These projects can now be managed from BAM! (like setting preferences or resource shares). You can attach your existing hosts to BAM! (instructions) and control them from BAM!.
These are the most important differences between using BOINC with or without BAM!:
|With BAM!||Without BAM!|
|Join projects from one single page with one click||Join a project by going to the projects site and sign up, or by attaching to it from the BOINC Manager|
|Change your account details for all projects from one single page||Change your account details by going to the websites of the projects|
|Set resource shares for all projects from one single page||Resource shares must be set at every project seperately|
|Create, join or quit teams in all projects from one single page||Create, join or quit teams by going to the websites of the projects|
|Change host venues for all projects from one single page||Change your host venue by going to the websites of the projects|
|Attach your hosts to projects from where you are now||You have to go to the host itself to attach it to a client or be able to remote control it over a network|
|Group your hosts and manage them all at once||You need to manage your hosts separately|
|Synchronize your CPID of retired projects with your current CPID or update the username or country||Not possible|
|Customize BOINCstats, shout in the shoutbox, direct links to your detailed stats and hosts, post in the forum, create a profile, make friends||None of this|
