Maybe I'm asking for too much, but it'd be nice to have a "graphics" window to see what's going on. Like what Folding@Home does.

Yes, I'm interested to that developers team of GPUGRID make a visualisation of calculating process in BOINC! It's almost 6 years past since last message in this subforum, but until now nothing changed. Why so???

There are three main reasons for this:
1. the app is very demanding without visualization, so it would take precious GPU resources away from the simulation itself (making it slower).
2. the team is lacking the manpower to upgrade the app to support the latest GPUs, which is more important issue than real time visualization.
3. the actual research is kept "secret" until the papers are published.

BTW you can visualize the simulated molecule with VMD, see this post (and the whole thread).

Why than in World Community Grid's projects and many others the visualisation works very well? And nothing precious resources don't takes!

So those people can make visualisation, but you can't? You have to lure people into the project, and visualization is a big part of it!
