Hardfork Mandatory Update Before Block 1521500
approx 2.5 weeks from 29th NovemberMiners and exchanges
should update using the original repo (old Huntercoin) for now https:/github.com/chronokings/huntercoin
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:/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 The original Huntercoin is based on old Bitcoin code which was way out of date.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.
-------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 > https://mega.nz/#!FU1FDYLT!toBmY4iKZiuaD3IDhLb96ihIMPzNgUQasxavRKBMrRs
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 > 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 > https://github.com/chronokings/huntercoinHuntercore 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) >> https://mega.nz/#!kAV3FRRB!ua_BEt6yGctyf86fe1LBg8duXFnJOK8qHAHpP585GPo
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.

------ 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.
Some information below may be incorrect for the next hardfork - will be updated After the Fork.
Latest Chain Download for v1.4 (old version) (save time) - http://chain.huntercoin.org/
Huntercoin is a P2P cryptocurrency which incorporates human mining. A blockchain-based alternate reality, P2P decentralized cryptocurrency game - MMOCG. Huntercoin is a Namecoin (NMC) fork. Features:
42 million coins, current supply is around 7 million coins.
1 minute block time.
10 coins per block – 1 coin to miners, 8.75 coins onto the map and 0.25 coins for Crown of Fortune (see below).
Dual algorithm SHA256 + Scrypt - Each algorithm has separate difficulty, both are targeting 2 minute block time and are merge-mineable.
Difficulty retargets every block based on the last 2016 blocks (PPC style) for each algorithm separately.
Integrated chat – Not realtime, newly broadcasted messages are published when a new block is mined. They stay recorded in blockchain permanently.
Includes all relevant features of other cryptocurrencies.
Human mining – Control Hunters to harvest coins on a map using strategy, time and optionaly teamwork.
After a Hunter brings harvested coins them back to a spawn area they will materialize in player wallet. Miners will receive 10% of these "banked" coins (bank tax).
When a Hunter is killed, 4% of the coins it held will be taken by miners (death tax) and the rest will be dropped to the ground. Any player can pick them up afterwards.
Miners should receive in total (over time) 20% of block reward (2 coins) + all taxes.
Crown of Fortune – Unique item on the map, player who picked it up will be getting 0.25 coins per newly mined block for as long as crown is in his possession.
Cost per new Hunter is 200 coins. Client:
