A difficulty calculator will merely give you an average, it still comes down to luck. One specific block could take you much less or much more than the average time.

63,381 is the current block, until a couple of days ago the majority of the network was mining at ahmed's pool (http://gme.crypto-expert.com/) but due to my underestimation of reaching the previous hard fork target of 62,250, ahmed updating his daemon after us reaching it and the hard fork being moved to block 64,000. ahmed's pool credited users with blocks that are now orphaned so as such he's had to run a full audit of payments and his pool has been out of service for a couple of days.

I believe he is now open for mining but it will still be some time before the full audit is complete and he can start crediting payments.

ortchi's pool (http://coin-base.net/gamecoin/) should also be updated with the latest version. I've not heard anything from tyrion70 yet but his pool should also be fine to mine on until we get to block 64,000 as his block explorer agrees that 63,381 is the current block.

I've also been mining the 63381 blockchain all this time with the latest client and still haven't found a block.

This is really a bad luck streak or something else is preventing the blockchain from advancing.

Lets try not to invite further attacks please. I've seen the suggestion by BCX and I've chosen to stay on the course that I have set. I have no intention to keep releasing clients every other day and labelling them as mandatory updates. This is as annoying for me as I'm sure it is for everyone else. Just once I'd like to release a client that only has minor changes like checkpoints added.

There are at least 50+ coins using 1 minute block times or less and the only reason GameCoin is more vulnerable than any of these coins is because there is very little miner support for GME which makes it easy to overwhelm. If you want it to survive then stop following coinchoose to the most profitable coin and actually mine GME. It really is that simple.

If you guys think the plan of action is not correct then just stick with GameCoin v0.8.2.1 and you can continue along the original fork at block 64,000. The miners will ultimately decide the way forward and whether or not GME will survive.

For the record, I'm behind you and support your decision.  I'll keep mining GME on the V0.8.3.1 client/chain.

BitcoinEXPres: My hats off to you sir.  You wield great power and knowledge.  Cool

Only 13 blocks to go..(the hardfork was brought forward to 62,400 correct?)

You can thank a couple of us from the Crypsty chat box ( me and bluestang) that decided to start mining GME about 7 hours ago! Nobody was mining it that was why it was stuck on block 63381

I thought the hard fork was moved to block 64,000 so it's over 600 blocks away.! I will keep mining, but it would be nice to see the GME community make an effort.

Check the payout address on the block explorer for the last half a dozen block mined, it's all the same it's http://gme.crypto-expert.com/ and I am the top hash rate contributor with just 500kH/s. I only registered there about 8hr ago. Now if I could just figure out how to get the pool to payout into my brand new GME wallet!

No worries, not fussed, I just keep getting these warning messages when I refresh the page that tell me:

You have exceeded the pools configured GME warning threshold. Please initiate a transfer!

It's not assigning the name of the miner to the blocks either, I think the pool mined the same block numbers on the wrong fork a few days ago and can't handle repeat block numbers.

Might be a good idea to create a new wallet address for the pool, as the old one has had too many transactions so the block chain explorer page wont display it! Makes it hard to audit the wallet.

Alright, enough already people!

Live and learn...then shut the fuck up and mine the coin you want to support.  I don't know about the rest of you, but this isn't a hobby for me...I actually need this shit right now to get back on the exchange.

Live and learn...then shut the fuck up and mine the coin you want to support.  I don't know about the rest of you, but this isn't a hobby for me...I actually need this shit right now to get back on the exchange.

This is very easy to understand.

1. The coin is currently being attacked.
2. We can make the changes to the code that the attacker has suggested, or continue on and let the attack persist.
Or
3. Ignore every word from the attacker and continue to think that we are progressing on the correct chain.

Words from the attacker:

Code:
BitcoinEXPres574: @Stouse49: Because I have one locked down in a time warp at 63381 and the other is advancing. When you guys mine about a 1000 blocks, I will drop about 400 mhs on the time warped chain and pass you, becoming the longer chain and invalidating everything behind me for a 1000 blocks. Pretty cool huh?

BitcoinEXPres574: Ok you guys wanna know how to fix GME?
BitcoinEXPres574: @mullick: All time warps require a coin with less than 2 minute block times, anything longer it's almost impossible.

BitcoinEXPres574: 2.5 minutes is on the extreme edge, I would move target time to 3 minutes.

BitcoinEXPres574: Solution for GME to live: rollback to 63380, 3 minute target times and set retarget for every 25 blocks. Just a suggestion. Nothing more.

BitcoinEXPres574: any "fast coin" less than 2.5 min block time is exploitable in multiple ways.

BitcoinEXPres574: @ mullick: Tell harbinger if he will fix his coin and cease with his BS, I'll consider not killing it. he's got four days.

 
The attacker is obviously not doing much as the block count wasn't increasing since the checkpoint update a couple of days ago until a couple of us started mining, so firstly I don't see a chain with an extra 1,000blocks, and secondly I don't see a chain that is locked down at 63,381

It is possible that the "Attacking" chain is isolated on a private network and hashing away.  If/When it is longer than the "Legit" blockchain it can be put online and invalidate any of our work.

You may not be able to see the "attacking" chain now but it might exist.

The only real defense against this would be to have more hashpower on the "legit" chain than any attacker would have.

Or keep a record of the valid block id's and reverse the attack with a checkpoint if it happens.


Meanwhile some Overclockers Australia (OCAU) members have chucked 30MH/s of gear onto mining GME for a little while to help the blocks tick over a bit quicker to the next diff lowering, just in case you are wondering why the sudden block rate pickup.


/UPDATE the difficulty just changed at block a little while ago from  Difficulty: 3.078 down to  0.769 which should help reach the 64,000 target a bit quicker.

However if you disable the irc and addnode features and only connect to specific nodes im pretty sure you could ensure you would be on 1 specific chain, which is currently our setup

The GME diff just went down again, at block 63456 now Difficulty: 0.192

Someone is trying to fork the chain at block 63484 with a fast block injection attack.

This is where selecting peers carefully comes into play.
