Here it is:
1) read bitcoin wiki
2) install compiler
3) start notepad
4) have a ball
5) compile newcoin



Ooh, I don't like the notepad step.  Are there any alternatives?

Darn! You got me. Cheesy

http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html is quite comfortable. Colors and stuff  Cool

If you feel hardcore and want a 'compile' button on your text editor try
http://www.codeblocks.org/
or
http://www.eclipse.org/

Judging most posts in this thread qt and c++ might be a bit too much, if you want to get up and running faster try
http://www.python.org/
with
http://www.wxpython.org/

Have fun Grin

Update:

The guide will be coming in the next few weeks, because I'll be pretty busy. All I need to do is figure out how to compile the QT client for windows, and create a program to find the genesis block. Else I could include the nifty python script which I believe was written by the creators of freicoin.

I've considered making people pay for the guide, but instead I'll just be encouraging donations from the ones who gain some knowledge from it.

Looking forward to it, i think this would help alot of people better understand how bitcoin works.

I saw multiple people ask how to generate genesis block. Actually it is very easy, just go to main.cpp, change the timestamp phase, unix time stamp etc, compile and run. Now the program will tell you assertion failed. Go to your coin folder under appdata, check the debug.log, it will tell you the genesis block hash. Now go back to the main.cpp, update the hash at the beginning of the program (I think it called hashGenesisBlock), recompile, and you are done.

You can get the full info on the genesis block by looking at the debug log, after a successful run.

I think we could extract all the configarable parameters to a file, and the rest code should be pretty generic code, and anyone can just enter the params and create a new coin. If I have time later, I can do that work, but I am working on my JunkCoin now:-)

I'm super busy with school and other projects. To those who said they'd like to donate, thank you!

I'll have it all ready sooner than later.

Best,

I successfully generated the genesisBlock and MerkleRoot, now I'm trying to figure out how to start the block chain so my clients can connect to it. Any suggestions on how to do this? do I run the daemon in parallel with the client?

How did you create the genesis block and Merle root?

achillez: just start one (daemon or qt) in server mode, and start another one to connect to it. Once connected, you can start mining. It's really simple, but took me a day to figure it out.

Alexmerced: you get hash and merle root from the debug log. See my explanation in the previous message.
