1.1. About

History

This program was created as a semestral work within the lessons of C/C++ in the second grade of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University. Former version from 1999 was written in BlitzBasic language and intended for the platform Amiga (name AmiGOD), or its emulators Amithlon, Amiga Forever and WinUAE. In 2002 the program was completely rewrited in extended C language (PowerD) under the name AmiGOD2. Further, in 2003, the project expanded on a new PowerPC Linux/Amiga compatible platform Pegasos G3/G4 (MorphOS) and finally on PC (Windows). However this new program is incompatible with the previous version, because of the rewriting in C++ language.

Installation of the program

The program does not need neither any specific dynamic libraries or work with Windows registers. Therefore you can copy the program anywhere on your disk without installation.

What is this program for?

With the set of CPU and 2D graphic tests the program tests the performance of your computer. The results can be saved as a module (= external file) and compared with modules of other computers in inbuilt database - graphically or by the accumulated mark rating.

Licence

The program WinGOD Benchmark is freeware. No charge can be required for its distribution.

2.1. Main window - Tests

The main sheet of the aplication WinGOD which is displayed after starting the program. Here you can check tests you want to run. However if you want your module to be created, you have to run all the tests, whereas every test takes ten seconds. After running all the tests by clicking on the button Run tests you can save your results to a file (sheet Create a new module) and then compare them with other computers on the sheet Database. The sheet Settings is used for editing the look of the database (colour of graphs displaying the performance of computers) and also for loading modules of other users. The last sheet About contains more detailed information about this project.


2.2. Creating a new module

For creating a new module you have to run all the tests. After finishing the button Save module... on the sheet Create a new module is enabled. Before saving you have to insert at least your nick (name of the module) and a configuration of your computer. Other items such as name and e-mail are voluntary. The module is saved to the directory Modules. An extension *.wng is attached automatically. To load saved modules back to the program use the sheet Settings.


2.3. Database

The database is made for comparing results of various computers according to achieved points. The first column contains nicks (names) of the modules, the second and third column number of achieved points in the set of mathematical tests and graphic illustration of the preformance compared with other computers.

More detailed information about a user (configuration, gfx card, operating system, etc.) can be obtained by moving the mouse cursor above the module's name. Information is immediately displayed below graphs in the section Module Information.

To compare performances you have to load modules in the sheet Settings, eventually WinGOD loads modules saved in settings when started.


2.4. Settings

In this section existing modules are imported. It is possible to load six modules at once and compare them together with your computer. By clicking on Module... you can load any module from the directory Modules (recommended directory for saving the modules) or from any location on your harddisc. Modules have the extension *.wng. The module is removed from settings by clicking on X beside its name. To remove all the modules click on the button Reset. You can also change colour settings and save whole settings. Every control in the program has a bubble help explaining its function.
