    i have not gotten paid after mining for more than 24 hours.

    each time i start minerd the it says "Failed to get Stratum session id" and when i check the worker tracker at http://elitter.net:7903/static/ (the pool i have chosen to use) nothing appears.

    -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://elitter.net:7903 -O XhsK9zvKwnxdjPbUCrW3W7JBFqKNFZ3DVY:anything -D -t 4

    Also same error with other pools, with http:// protocol, and when using -u & -p for username and password also when not defining number of threads. in dark.png fact nothing seems to make this work

    You have it set up wrong.
    This is what you have:
    Code:
    -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://elitter.net:7903 -O XhsK9zvKwnxdjPbUCrW3W7JBFqKNFZ3DVY:anything -D -t 4
    But really, it should be:
    Code:
    -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://elitter.net:7903 -u XhsK9zvKwnxdjPbUCrW3W7JBFqKNFZ3DVY -p anything -t 4

    but thank you for trying to help

    Take a special note of using the "u" flag for your username instead of what you have of an "O".

    also the -D option is for debug which is how i was able to view the error message as i don't believe it was visible before that.

    seems like no tracker info is due to the low amount of work i'm getting. is this "Failed to get session id" message going to prevent me from getting deposits?

    Well it could be because you are mining at such a low rate, that the stratum thinks you are disconnecting. Try adding +001 to the end of your address.
    Code:
    minerd.exe -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://pool:7903 -u XXXXXXXX+0.001 -p 1234

    because it seems i'm passing up all the work now and no longer on the worker tracker.... although im not getting the false positives anymore

    update: i let it go back to giving my difficulty level which is much lower than 1. it's like .022 getting false positives again but wasn't getting any work at all at 1.
