How to confirm your CPID

6 Guides 03 Oct 2021

Each participant is required to register first in order to participate in BOINC games.

Registration is simple:
1. Visit the registration site:
2. Enter your BOINC Games personal account information: username, email, password and CPID

The CPID (Cross Project Identification/Identifier) can be obtained via visiting Free-DC stat site if you already participated in any of the BOINC projects. Click on your username to view your CPID. Here I use my Primegrid project as an example.

If you have never participated in any BOINC project, first join any projects listed in BOINC-games. Your CPID will be automatically created.
Note: all BOINC projects have the same CPID. You can also view your CPID via BOINCstats website
Enter the CPID and click “Submit” button.

3. A temporary unique name (67RMeB) will be generated to link BOINC games to your BOINC project stats. You will need to edit your BOINC project account profile next.

Log into any of the BOINC project website listed in BOINC games. Here I chose and change my name from “pututu” to “67RMeB” after clicking on “other account info”.

  1. Sit back and wait within 24 hours or sometime up to 48 hours for the CPID to be validated. The validation speed depends on the BOINC project select ed and how often the project stat is been updated.
  2. Once validated, you can change your username back in the BOINC project account that you had selected previously. In my case, it is Primegrid.
  3. Any questions, please post in this forum.

So I have to go and change my user name in 45 projects and then change them back again?

How can I tell if my account has been validated? I changed my name at every Project on the list but would love to go back to my usual name

You do not have to change your name at every single project. Just one of them on the project list here will do. Your CPID will be confirmed when it says you are confirmed on your team member list page. You can also tell because your stats will get updated.

Additionally, I need to figure out a way to disable the comments on here because as you guys can see I never check them and didn’t even know it was there in the first place. So I apologize for the extremely late response.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
