Example of pools.txt:

"pool_list" :

[

  {"pool_address" : "POOL_URL:PORT", "wallet_address" : "YOUR_MAINNET_WALLET_ADDRESS", "rig_id" : "", "pool_password" : "x", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 1 },

],


XMRig

Use "algo": "cryptonight-heavy", in config file or -a cryptonight-heavy in command line 

You may use https://config.xmrig.com for config creation (mind the algorithm)



Cast XMR —

optimized for the Radeon RX Vega series of GPUs

http://www.gandalph3000.com

Use --algo=2 for CryptoNight-Heavy



Ccminer-cryptonight —

CUDA accelerated mining application

currently doesn't support cryptonight heavy



SRBMiner Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3167363.0
