See the post a few below yours, http://www.tateu.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=426, there is a link to download a version of OTFBrutusGUI that works for VeraCrypt. It's down near the bottom of the thread, http://www.tateu.net/files/OTFBrutusGUI ... aCrypt.zip

VeraCrypt does some things to really slow down brute forcing the password. It increases the iteration count for the password hashing from 1000/2000 to 500000/655331. This means that brute forcing a VeraCrypt volume will take about 327 to 500 times longer than brute forcing a TrueCrypt drive. A password for a TrueCrypt volume that could be cracked in 1 hour would take over 13 or 20 days (depending on the hash algorithm used) to crack for a VeraCrypt volume.
