Hi,

I have a World Community Grid account and I would like to add it to my BAM! project list, but find account operation always ends in "Incorrect password".
The World Community Grid account name is not the same what I use in BAM! because that username was already taken.

How can I add World Community Grid to my projects in this case?

Regards,

Tofi

Known issue, the custom front-end that WCG uses doesn't play well with BAM. I don't know what people have been doing lately to get it working, there might be some workarounds.

BAM doesn't support different logins for each project and WCG as noted doesn't act like a regular BOINC project. BOINC is just a means to an end for them unfortunately. You can't even properly see your Android devices because they truncate the device names.

You can change your username so it matches WCG...

i have almost the same problem - Cannot add World Community Grid to my projects - but my WCG name equals email and matches BAM email. When I try to add WCG to BAm, it says "account nor found". Do I have to make my WCG name the same as BAM name?

Really? Seems like it's a crapshoot when someone new tries to add WCG. Either something changed, you got lucky, or a lot of people have probelms following directions.
