The former should provide huge speedup when cracking a large number of hashes per salt (unusual?), and the latter a further 2x-ish speedup. Oh, and OMP_SCALE needs to be tuned, and BENCHMARK_LENGTH should be changed from -1 to 0 because this is a salted format (unlike lotus5). See also: DOMINOSEC_fmt_plug.c (another related format, for reference). These hashes are expected to be seen in the Hash Runner contest starting later today, so ideally you'd implement the optimizations today (or perhaps someone else will, and you'll miss the opportunity to practice). Thanks, Alexander
