This is purely an experiment for fun. This is for litecoins but can bitcoin people help me too :)
I am using litecoinqt to solo cpu mine, on my windows machine. Threads set between 4 and 10, scantime of 99.
My main computer has 4 cpu cores. But I am noticing the same speed as when I use my laptop which has only one cpu core. This makes me think I am not using all the cores on my main computer?
Is there a way to force the miner to use more cores?
