Huntercoin - Downloads and Updates
« on: April 05, 2014, 08:46:10 PM »
Downloads

(New users should use the "All-in one Huntercore" unless you know what you are doing-) > If you have used the AiO before, and want to "update", use the "installer/updater without chain". This will update your unity client and qt.exe, but keep your chain intact.

notes - unity3d has been updated to 1.22 :
Fixed hunters disappearing
Fixed Ghosting displaying incorrectly
please report any issues on this forum or bitcointalk

All in One - Huntercore v0.13 + Unity3d 1.22+ Pruned Chain - 500mb Download
For New Users - this should get you up and running with a huntercoin wallet + unity3d client in the time it takes to download + a few minutes of syncing >>
Windows > https://mega.nz/#!pdUznRiJ!oEDFIU6ctJWm9zmIcalEXQP8wkmiB9itY2Ipole-0ow

This will install the exe's and chain into c:\huntercore + create 2 shortcuts on your desktop. QT-Huntercoin (the normal wallet, click this first) then Unity-Huntercoin ( click this after QT has synced)
A static rpc username and password has been set so it works out of the box, but if you are concerned more about security you can change the huntercoin.conf and the server settings in unity. If you have already used the unity client before, the server settings will have saved in your registry so it might not auto connect without changing the rpc login details which are in huntercoin.conf of the new install.

Huntercore + Unity3d 1.22 Installer/Updater NO CHAIN included - Use this to update unity if you have already installed the All-in-One OR if you want to use the installer but sync from scratch.
Windows > https://mega.nz/#!AUlWAQqZ!JSnkDBM2qJeeODNYu_YGnsnMg8TK_8gcpelEmG5HCUE

Huntercore Wallet v0.13 (no game tab) + Unity3d Client 1.22 standalone downlads (use unity if you want to play the game, otherwise ignore it)- you will need to addnodes or copy the peers.dat file (included) to your datadir (until we hardcode them)  >> https://mega.nz/#!4V13WYRD!6VdMN7KxZIKkDEMz6fhtQ1q8VaXFApKDCrMy5lNDeKQ

WARNING - you can not use this over the top of your OLD datadir (e.g. if you have used Huntercoin before). Either make (or specify) a new datadir, or move your old one if it is in the default directory.  Migrating to Huntercore will not convert your old datadir (it might try but probably fail).

Huntercoin.exe is the unity client. If you do not know what you are doing or/and have not used huntercoin before, use the All-in-One version.


Old Version Huntercoin (with game tab), this will be phased out - v1.4 >>
Windows >  https://mega.nz/#!qUdx0LKD!sSWS-Jt06hgeIrl1H1Z_utOOpZReABNDAJ3kwrpkLbg

(the windows binaries include better-qt safemode which is a modified qt with updated graphics by wiggi - read the quickstart guide for more info)

Source:

Old Huntercoin -  https:/github.com/chronokings/huntercoin
NEW Huntercoin core  (aka Huntercore) : https://github.com/chronokings/huntercore/tree/0.13

------
ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR WALLETS
-----

Notes on Unity3d -

Currently shows the new spawn areas but they will not take effect until the Hardfork (same for QT)
You should set Alarms for   "When enemy are detected" to something like 5 and enable Audio Alert. In the hunter section you should make sure ALL and PENDING are enabled - this shows lines / paths of other hunters on the map. Pressing Update will check the memory pool for valid player moves (before they go in the chain).
Pressing SORT will put all hunters with enemies within the set "alarm" range at the top.
Make sure you are synced before using Unity.
The Chat section connects to #huntercoin on freenode IRC - needs some work to see whos in there but it can work as basic chat if required.

More Unity3d updates coming soon.




Last Hardfork info below :

Hardfork Mandatory Update Before Block 1521500
Done

  • Hunters will spawn on rings around the coin farms
  • The new spawn areas (around the coins), also act as banks to log out your Hunters
  • Randomly-spawned banks now spawn only in and around the coin farms
  • The above updates should allow for much quicker game sessions
  • Hunter creation fee reduced from 5 HUC to 1 HUC
  • Hunter refundable cost reduced from 200 HUC to 100 HUC, which is refunded if you do not die in PvP
  • When you first create a Hunter, it will be invulnerable for 5 blocks unless you make a move. If you do not, it will enter spectator mode and be unable to move (but can still chat-this may be used for some extra features at a later time). The Hunter will still be invulnerable
  • Coins will periodically become "ghosted" on certain map tiles according to a specific pattern. They become unlootable and accumulate until their ghosting period is over
  • Destruct fee reduced from 20 HUC to 1 HUC
For the next hardfork, we'll be looking at combat mechanics and NPCs (for the rest of the map away from spawn areas, which is now fairly empty).

Miners and exchanges should use this to update: https:/github.com/chronokings/huntercoin

After the hardfork, you can migrate to Huntercore when everything is successful.


Official Release of Huntercoin Core (aka Huntercore)

Huntercore is based on Namecore, which is based on Bitcoin Core's latest code. The original Huntercoin is based on old Bitcoin code which was way out of date. This brings a lot of goodies, including:

  • Much better performance. It should be much easier on your hard disk, in particular
  • HD (Hierarchical Deterministic) Wallet. You should only need to backup the wallet once, and can even use the same wallet in multiple locations (possibly).
  • Pruning. It is now possible to prune the blockchain (and provide a pruned blockchain for new users). You can get the chain down to approximately 1.1GB, 500MB compressed. However, with a pruned chain download, you will need to use a fresh wallet. If you already have a wallet which has been used for old transactions, you will still need to sync from scratch, as a "rescan" is not possible once the chain is pruned
We recommend you create a new wallet with Huntercore and transfer coins from an old wallet to the new addresses. That way you can make use of Huntercore's HD wallet functionality.

The Huntercore wallet does not yet currently have the game tab. If you want to play using the QT, you will need to use the old version. We are hoping to migrate the game tab to the Huntercore wallet at some later stage (possibly Wiggi will take on the task).

For now, the Unity3D client has been adapted to work with Huntercore and is included with Huntercore in the all-in-one download. It's much better than the built-in version, anyways.

Props go to Wiggi for the game changes and coding, and Domob for sanity checking and assistance. And massive thanks to Domob for Huntercore and the Bitcoin Co-op for beta testing (with testnet box etc). And the Bitcoin and Namecoin developers of course.

what's the point of keep including the sources of qrc_bitcoin.cpp and qrc_gamemap.cpp in the zip of windows compiled version?
isn't 10 MB wasted space?

Update 1.00.07b

What's the Length Based fee? So every 100 (separate name updates per name or per client) a fee will be charged?

no, basically the more waypoints you do (a big tx), the more it will cost. so people that do massive long list of waypoints in 1 name_update will cost more.

compressed is 2mb :) -- I just copy everything which is populated in the "release" folder when compiled, + namecoind.exe from src.

updated

right before i read your reply I had seen in the commit description on github describing it clearly as stated :P

EDIT:
Would this be a mandatory update? Keep getting errors whilst updating the bot client to this upgrade...

Things I have done:
Updated dependencies & easywinbuilder
Attempted to inject bot into fresh src

Compiles fine, runtime error as soon as bot reaches INIT BOTS.

Since we're planning to release a hard fork (for disaster) relatively soon, I'm not sure if snailbrain is trying to get pools to upgrade right now, too.  If they do not (yet) update, the new version is not strictly "mandatory" - but nodes that have updated will reject your transactions with too low fees, so you may see them pending forever.  The fee updates are not a hard fork, though (neither this one nor the last one).  Transactions with too low fees are still "valid", but won't be relayed or mined by default nodes.

F2pool are aware so may update soon.. then "players" will need to upgrade as f2pool are the/main one processing tx/mining.
I've not bothered telling exchanges yet, as it wont' effect them. also as domob said the Disaster will be a real hardfork so I'll wait for that and then contact all of them.

Just thought of possible issue with this update..

Assuming user hasn't upgraded, but miners have:

Transferring character is instant  when it goes in memory pool?.. BUT, the tx may not go in the chain if the miner has udpated and the transferer hasn't.. so they will lose hunter? (or be stuck in the memory pool for a long time)..

he will be stuck in the train station -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2BhvpJ9zRE

I could be wrong, but even if' i'm right, shouldn't cause any major problems, maybe someone could lose a few hunters if they haven't updated and try to transfer (although, if the transfer/update is less than 100 characters long, maybe will be ok :d )

I don't think so.  The transfer will be stuck, but it is basically the same as if they "just" tried to move the hunters.  They can always be made unstuck by deleting the transaction and clearing the memory pool.

ok maybe.

When you transfer hunter with the qt it disappears instantly, and also appears instantly in the wallet you transfered too.. but you don't get full control until it goes into the next block.
so not sure if deleting will be ok, maybe after it leave memory pool?

anyway, not worth worrying about :)

How long is a typical transfer in length? Can you transfer the player way points aswell?

when transfer character it should do everything it was doing last time.. e.g. moving

Hey, sup...
Just registered on this here forum and immediately had to issue a password reset email...
All so i could ask HOW THE F*@# DO I EXTRACT THE .001 to .008 BLOCKCHAIN FILES?!!
I've tried everything, from file-merging software to extracting with WinRAR.
It always fails, giving me an incomplete file.

And leaving the client open for 6 hours, it hasn't even finished downloading the first blockchain file  >:(
I honestly have better things to do...

And look, i know nobody's done it before, but maybe this could be the coin that finally implements blockchain pruning.

Peace out.

EDIT: Neverind, it worked with &Zip's "Open Inside" function. Maybe add the program to be used on the OP?
