Old Stuff from OP.

Slimming it down

Windows 1.3.01!hEE23C5b!SJ5O29gdH4SdhWQCIaIEeqokPXJJN9TQM3qy2i41SQk

Huntercoin 1.3.1 HardFork - Major Update - Fork Passed

Implement "Game fees" - This allows fees to be paid which go to the gamefund - useful for the current update and future updates (attacks of different values).
Remove Hearts and Hearted Hunters (no value standard hunters). We'll add/change them in a future update.
Remove Death Upon Destruct
Allow Destruct and Waypoint at the same time.
Implement Life Steal Concept - If you hit with a destruct you will take their Hunters value and add it on your own. e.g. If your general costs 200 hucs and you hit someone worth 200 hucs, you will have a value of 400 hucs and they will die. Your Hunters value can be consider "Health".
Display Hunters Value in the "Life" Tab when not poisoned from Disaster. If you are poisoned from Disaster it will tick down as before.
Hunters will spawn on Random Locations on the Map.
Reduce Carry Capacity to 100
Add Destruct Fee of 20 HUCs - This may seem expensive but is required to stop chain spamming destruct. This will be reduced once we implement Spell Timers or something else...
Remove Old Spawn/Bank Areas.
Make Banks Random - Banks will spawn in Random Locations on the Map. 75 Banks at a time on the map.
Add Life Span for Banks - Banks will have a 25 to 100 Life Span. This is not currently displayed in the QT.
Reducing Spawn/Bank Refund from 30 to 2 Blocks - If you stay on a bank square for more than 2 blocks your coins will be refunded for your general (and any "life" you took from other hunters in PvP).
Add 5 HUC fee on top of the 200 Fee for Creating a Hunter. This Fee is added to the gamefund.
Reallow "20 byte rule" for merge mining. Requested by F2pool. This makes the code more consistent with other merge mined coins.
Make getauxblock support both sha256d and scrypt regardless of algo="" in huntercoin.conf. by f2pool.
Hunters Value will be refunded upon Disaster.


Small Update
Fix Bug in name_pending - locking order - sometimes caused daemon/qt to hang
Fix to static nodes - should help if IRC is not available

IRC is actually working now though..


Download Chain >> - on windows, use 7zip or similar, the built in windows extractor seems to have an issue uncompressing it.

Mandatory Update - HardFork Huntercoin v1.2 - Improve PvP & Bot Reduction

Increase General Cost from 10 HUC -> 200 HUC
Increase Carrying Capacity to 2000 HUC
Reduce Heart Spawn to 1/500 Blocks
Reduce Destruct Radius of Generals to 1 Square Radius (same as hunters)
Remove Hearts at Disaster
Reintroduce Spawn Death after 30 Blocks - But, if you die this way, the coins are returned to you in full.
Rename "lost coins" (originally for coins lost when the crown is not being held) to "gamefund" - this can be seen in game_getstate
Add coins on Generals (including cost) who die whilst Poisoned (from Disaster) to "gamefund" instead of dropping on the floor. These coins will be used in a future update - Add to the Crown and into NPCs or by other methods.

Must update before block 590k < 2 weeks  -- (240k on testnet).

UPDATE - Fixes Stuck Chain

Huntercoin -
Fixed Chain Stuck - due to re-org/opreturn - see -,710.0.html - if you are already stuck, you may need to redownload the chain. You can download from here
Implement Single TX Hunter Creation in the QT - QT now creates the character in one tx. Instead of the old "name_new then name_firstupdate", which was a namecoin function to prevent someone sniping your name before it went in the chain - this isn't really an issue with Huntercoin.!oZ0DTITR!BCpObY6zNZZIdYziG6ojPKA4aTIQphEkhXghNaYKZis

Huntercoin 1.1 -- Mandatory Update (before Block 500k) (2 weeks)

Implement Carrying Capacity Limit - Generals can carry a maximum of 50 coins, Hunters a Maximum of 25 Coins.
Remove Spawn Death - Staying in the Spawn area for 30 blocks will no longer kill you
One Step Name Registration - no longer required to do - name_new and name_first update (will work after hardfork, QT will still use old style, for now)
OP Return - Enable storing "tags" to transactions with OP_RETURN scripts.
Various other fixes, improvements - see github

UPDATE - 1.0.11 Mandatory Update (HardFork) - Update before block 255k
WARNING - This update will rebuild some files (blkindex.dat and game.dat) - on some systems this may take several hours. The Process will also use up to 2.5GB ram. I'm Uploading chain for those that do not wish to do it
You can monitor debug.log or run the daemon with -printtoconsole=1 to monitor the process. Make a backup of everything first.

Remove unused data from blkindex.dat. It will be rewritten on first open and certain data removed. This should reduce blkindex by quite a bit - this process takes quite some time - maybe hours on some systems. For more information see:
Implement "Cleansing" - aka Poison Disaster - Disaster will first occur on the Hard Fork Block. All Generals on the Map will be infected with a plague and will be given a random life span of 1 to 50 blocks. Following disasters can happen 1440 blocks (approx 1 day) after the last
disaster. There will then be an increasing chance of disaster maxing at 12 days.
Add Remaining Life Span to QT
Increase General Cost - 10 HUCs per General
Remove starting Hunters - You will start with only 1 General (you can still pickup hearts for additional Hunters).
Add toaddress argument to name_firstupdate -  can be used to assign a player to a specified address with firstupdate.
Implement name_update in createrawtransaction - can be used for atomic trading of names.
Various Performance Updates and Fixes (too many to list - see commits on github)
Add checks for valid player name in name_new
Add length check to IsValidPlayerName.
Add coinAmount field to players in game state
Add game_getpath RPC command - Create a new RPC command game_getpath that makes the internal shortest path algorithm accessible to front-ends.

New Update 1.00.07b
Startup Time Improvement
Added New RPC Call :- analyseutxo
Upgrade Open SSL (heartbleed fix)
Add Length Based Fee for Name_update. A 0.002 HUC fee will be taken per 100 characters of a name_update. - (basically: the more wp, the bigger the fee)
Fix Name_update crash when updating name of a dead player using daemon.


min name_update fee of 0.01
You need to update before miners, or you will get stuck moves.
Added name_pending rpc - will show name_updates in memory pool.

Re: Huntercoin Hardfork Mandatory Update Before Block 1521500 v1.4 - Download
« Reply #141 on: November 29, 2016, 08:52:06 PM »
Good news. The hardfork has been set, GitHub updated, client & game tested (as much as we could) and the game updates will be live in approximately 2.5 weeks.

Huntercore is also ready to use (with pruning), and the Unity3D client has been modified so you can play the game with it, too. New players now only need to download the ~500MB compressed pruned chain to start playing (actual pruned chain is 1.1GB uncompressed).

Miners and exchanges should update using the original repo (old Huntercoin) for now https:/

See below and read ALL:

Hardfork Mandatory Update Before Block 1521500

Miners, please post or send me a PM ASAP, and also when you have updated. Game changes:

  • 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:/

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.


Download links are all updated with the Fork - (New users should use the "All-in one Huntercore" unless you know what you are doing-) >

All in One - Huntercore v0.13 + Unity3d + 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 >!gIVXUaYD!kvwLruozyLjXlvZjjU43oJzJ4Tn1qn-3f0K3clShu4I

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.

Old Version Huntercoin (with game tab), this will be phased out - v1.4 >>
Windows >!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 >

Huntercore Wallet v0.13 (no game tab) + Unity3d Client (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)  >>!lU1WUDwb!S0qiHjC_2KjADxqnTuDw358R9TUFQsRhLBRW1tfzu_0

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 Huntercoin - For Miners / Exchanges / Players who want to use the Game Tab in QT :: https:/
Huntercoin core  (aka Huntercore) bleeding edge: https:/


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.
