THIS IS NOT REALLY A NEW COIN TO MINE!!

Its actually a tutorial, step by step, with source code provided for two coins: foocoin is empty and ready to be customized; barcoin is the finished product of following the step by step guide found here:

http://devtome.com/doku.php?id=scrypt_altcoin_cloning_guide&#how_to_clone_scrypt_based_altcoins_for_fun_and_profit

and knowing Devtome is a Wiki, here is an unfiltered .pdf version of the guide (will be updated as I add new items):

https://mega.co.nz/#!HFlzgCSb!SqWmpBux9BEUZwiX8o0XGGeEY08fPC76LdIIL91pQq0
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B49exKIsGBn5ajhqSjJyVDR6STQ/edit?usp=sharing

Now a bit about the project in bullet points:

*Its based on Litecoin source, and uses examples found in the SmallChange repository

*Its not designed to be a primer on C or C++ programming, its a "change this and make it work" kind of guide

*The foocoin sources are customized to be as easy as possible to build on Mac, Linux, and Windows and the guide contains the steps needed to install the software and build each wallet.

*It is a tad tongue-in-cheek; the product of about a month's worth of reading and trial and error.

*I will not/can not do tech support for this; I've tried to compile as much info as I could and my experiences building GeoCoin and
Doubloons in to this guide. NEARLY all of the info came from other amazingly helpful people on this board--the rest is from trial and error, google, and various programming snippet websites. I am willing to have casual discussion about coins and coin creation though!

Foocoin Source: https://github.com/foocoin (blank, ready to be customized)
Barcoin Source: https://github.com/barcoin (really more for information and comparison)

I also took the time to build a pacakge of all the MinGW32 dependencies which can be retrieved via git and placed in c:\deps. The Foocoin source -qt.pro file is customized to look for these dependencies in c:\deps but the guide also shows you how to build them yourself and customize the -qt.pro file. The dependencies are here:

Foocoin MinGW32 Dependencies Bundle: https://github.com/foocoin/deps.git

Last but not least, I also included the Windows-Qt addins in another repository so you can bundle them with your newly made coins:

Foocoin Windows Qt Addins: https://github.com/foocoin/windows-qt-addins.git

Whew, ok, one last note--I haven't mastered the redistributable Mac-Qt yet, so consider that section a work in progress. Finally, please consider donating a few bits if you find this useful, my BTC and LTC addies are in my signature. This guide took me nearly 30 hours to compile and my wife would be ever so happy if something came of it  Cheesy

Oh, well this is nice. Thanks!

Hopefully this will put an end to people adopting random coins...Regardless of your opinion of them, this has been getting insane

For what? Another coin made for no particular reason? Tongue

So you mined no genesis block for barcoin, right? Could we still do this now, or do you need access to the git to reup the source once you have mined the genesis block?

Why would he? The code is there for reference, not usage.

Barcoin is fully functional. Foocoin is empty. Barcoin is silly, but if you want to mine it, here's a windows wallet:

https://mega.co.nz/#!E4IQ0YQZ!fQ3aCRwtgtqSX27ChhK0pn3K575ZzSdRu4Zd5Okc6Ro

Know there are currently NO seed nodes for it though, so you'll have to compile it somewhere to bootstrap it. I can run the initial node for a bit if there's interest.

Edit ok there is, geesh you guys are desperate to mine. Seednode/addnode = 69.85.86.195

I have compiled it on my linux box and am getting no connections indeed. So how can I become the seed node?

Edit// aight it's working now, but how could i have become the seednode if you hadn't done so?

The node is down already so I'm just interested, could you tell how one can become a seednode?

Can you point us to the defs for each of the options that are changed?

Sorry, had to reboot--ran out of memory from a night of compiling. Go ahead, I will leave it up for a couple hours to let a few others get copies of the blockchain so if you REALLY want to mine/trade/whatever it, go ahead.

By the way, the 30 or so I already mined as a test are for sale, 1LTC each. Since there will ONLY BE 10K COINS, you better get in on it early!

The tutorial outlines every step needed with LINE numbers and src/page notation. If you want a master .diff, use this one:

https://github.com/bfroemel/smallchange/commit/947a0fafd8d033f6f0960c4ff0748f76a3d58326

It was a good starting point for me.
