A multi-algorithm mining program developed for NVIDIA video cards is called T Rex Miner. Cryptocurrency Ravencoin, Ethereum Classic and others can be mined with this mining program.
The command line program is called Miner T-Rex. This means that you can execute it either from the Windows command line or from the Linux console, or you can use a Windows batch file or a Linux Bash script to set up shortcuts for the specified command lines.
The developer fee is 1% (2% for Octopus, Autolykos2 and their dual mining modes).
The program must first be downloaded from this page. Make sure you select the correct file for your OS. You need to download the .zip file if you are using Windows. You should select the .tar.gz file if you are using Linux. From the names of the files, it is obvious that these are software versions for various iterations of the video card’s CUDA driver.
Depending on the algorithm you want to use to mine the coin, you must select the appropriate script file after downloading the application. After that, modify the mining bat file and include the mining pool URL, worker (farm) name, and wallet address. Then save the program as a .bat file for Windows or bash-.sh for Linux.
An example T Rex Miner.bat file for Binance Pool is shown below:
t-rex -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://ethash.poolbinance.com:8888 -u username1 -p x -w worker_name
Step 3 – Launch T Rex Miner.
A saved or completed run should be double-clicked. to start the miner, use the bat file.
This is how the finished T-Rex Miner batch file for ETH on the Binance Pool will look like:
Just replace username 1 with your Binance pool account name.
t-rex -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://ethash.poolbinance.com:8888 -u username1 -p x -w worker_name pause
You must enter each of the following five instructions to understand how to start from scratch:
1) T-rex is the name of the application we are using.
2) ethash – algorithm for mining
3) ethash.poolbinance.com – pool number
4) 8888 – pool number
5) username1 – the username associated with the exchange’s mining account.
To create a batch file for the Firo cryptocurrency (MTP), you need to enter other instructions:
t-rex -a mtp -o stratum+ssl://zcoin.mintpond.com:3005 -u aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK.rig0 -p x
To avoid displaying more text from the command itself on the screen, we’ve inserted @echo off here.
Then the loop follows:
Command execution is organized in a loop using this architecture. However, in this case, the load on the processor increases slightly.
Setting up the T Rex miner for NiceHash
The NiceHash batch file is available here:
t-rex -a kawpow -o stratum+tcp://kawpow.eu.nicehash.com:3385 -u 3HHG3zpxP4AmbKDR9iRy1c2bqAb4WKhNwm.rig -p x -i 8 --cpu-priority 1 --coin RVN --temperature-limit 78 --temperature-start 65

The mining algorithm is given by –algo or a shortened version of this command (for example, “ethash”, “mtp”, “kawpow” or “progpow”).
Important! The long synonym -algo or the short -a should be used. Both should not be used at the same time.
Commas will be used to indicate the separation of subsequent instructions. The short synonym is used first, then the long one. Keep in mind that you only need to choose one.
– version or -v Version shown; then leave.
-c, –config configuration file path > Use JSON configuration instead of batch files (CMD file).
Enter the command t-rex -c config.txt on a terminal to start T-Rex from a configuration file.
Use the sample configuration file as a starting point for developing your own configuration.
Add –log-path trex.txt option to your mining settings to start saving logs for T-Rex.
Full path to the log file: -l, –log-path
c:trex.log –log-path You can create a folder, decide where to store the logs, and then enter the full path.
Memory setting mode (default: 0 – disabled). The supported range is 0 to 6. It is generally recommended to start at 1 and increase only if the GPU is stable.
The results are comparable to those of ETHlargementPill. Only compatible with Pascal GPUs with GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory.
The miner must be run with administrator rights.
To assign different values to multiple cards, you can provide a comma-separated list.
Typical: –mt 4 (applies tuning mode 4 to all cards that support this feature).
–mt 3,3,3,0 (Applies setup mode 3 to all cards except the last one) (Applies setup mode 3 to all cards except the last one).
LHR unlock setting
To enable LHR unlock, follow these steps:
1) Run the .bat file (or command line in HiveOs).
2) Select the device you want to apply LHR unlock to.
3) In the text area, enter –lhr-tune 68 or any other supported value.
4) Save your changes.
5) Close the configuration window.
6) Carry out the procedure on additional devices.
The commands to unlock LHR are as follows:
Select the second algo to use in the LHR unlock dual mining mode with –lhr-algo.
Specify the name of the coin for the algorithm with –lhr-coin.
-lhr-tune [Ethash, Autolykos2] Значение настройки LHR, указывающее процент полной скорости майнера, который
пытается достичь Trex для карт LHR (по умолчанию: -1). Диапазон от 10 до 95.
-1 - auto-mode (LHR tune is set to 74 (or 68 in low power mode) for LHR cards and 0 for non-LHR)
0 - disabled (use for non-LHR cards)
30 - recommended starting value for most LHR cards in LHR unlock dual mining mode (see --lhr-algo)
68 - recommended starting value for most LHR cards in low power mode (see --lhr-low-power)
74 - recommended starting value for most LHR cards
Can be set for each GPU separately, e.g.
"lhr-tune": "0,0,74.5,0" - this will set LHR tuning value to 74.5 for the third GPU.
--lhr-autotune-mode [Ethash, Autolykos2] LHR auto-tune mode (default: full). Valid values:
off - auto-tune is disabled. LHR tune value is fixed during mining, and will not change
no matter how often LHR lock is detected
down - LHR tune value will decrease if the miner detects LHR lock
full - same as "down" but additionally miner will be trying to increase LHR tune
value if its stable on the current LHR tune level
--lhr-autotune-step-size LHR auto-tune step size (default: 0.5).
Indicates by how much LHR tune value is changed by the LHR auto-tuner.
--lhr-autotune-interval LHR auto-tune time interval in minutes (default: 20).
Amount of time the GPU must be mining without hitting LHR locks before the miner increases LHR tune value.
Also, if the GPU has triggered an LHR lock, LHR tune value will not decrease if
the previous LHR lock was detected more than "--lhr-autotune-interval" minutes ago.
--lhr-low-power [Ethash, Autolykos2] Reduces power consumption in LHR mode at a cost of a slightly lower hashrate.
Solution of errors.
This “GPU idle” issue should be resolved by increasing the Windows virtual memory to 21000 MB. It is also possible that the video card is overclocked.
API read only mode
Use the command line to fix this issue:
t-rex.exe --api-generate-key <<chooseapassword>>
You can copy the generated key and place it in the configuration file entry –api-key.
Then, at the web interface prompt, enter “choose a password>>”.
