Today we have released version 2.0 of ATLAS simulation. The main addition to this version is a graphical interface which can be launched with the "show graphics" button on the BOINC manager. The interface explains a bit more about why we do ATLAS@Home, some background information on basic particle physics, some examples of what simulation looks like and links to where you can find out more about the ATLAS experiment.

Please allow the task to run for up to a minute before launching the graphics as it requires some processes to start inside the virtual machine. The interface was created by Giulio Isacchini, a student at the University of Oslo in collaboration with the rest of the ATLAS@Home team. Please ask questions, give comments and suggestions for improvements, extra features etc on the Graphics forum. The graphics are currently only available on the single-core version, we will add it to multi-core soon.

Enjoy!

EDIT:There is a small configuration issue stopping the pages loading on Mac hosts and possibly Windows hosts too. This problem will go away in the next 3-4 hours.

When I click on the show graphics button a new webpage opens in Chrome (default browser) with the following message:

The webpage at http://localhost:59232/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

Did you try it with an Atlas task running on your Windows 10 ?

Identical problem here. "Show graphics" button redirects to http://localhost:59357/

I have Windows 10 running Atlas multicore app.

This is correct. The way it works is we have a web server running inside the virtual machine hosting the graphics. Virtualbox assigns a random port number (59357 in your case) to forward to port 80 inside the VM and so this should load the graphics in your browser. This is why you have to wait a couple of minutes after the task starts because you need to wait until the web server starts.

Do you get "server not found" or a page with "loading..."?

I am getting "server not found". But your notice says that graphics do not work on multicore apps.
