I just downloaded the Sprouts wallet source code to get an understanding of it.  Let me see if I can fix the 1 billion error and increase it to, like, 40 billion.  Also I will change it to be Sprouts Classic to be unique and independent from the failed HF wallet.
...
I don't even know if the changes to the code you'd like to see will make for a soft fork or a hard fork.

Also, if there is mention of Sprouts in the code to amend it with Classic?  Let me know.  
This would require further study.

-----------
About a year ago I had written up directions on how to get this version of a sprouts wallet up and running on a windows PC.  Here is that link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1798901.msg19720939#msg19720939
-----------
And here is the github post I found with the latest version of the sprouts code (I'm not sure of its exact version, but it may be: v0.1.2.2-gd0cbc83 )
https://github.com/gjhiggins/sprouts

He also lists instructions for compiling.
-----------

May I suggest that making changes to the sprouts code now may not be the best thing to do at this time, but rather, getting sprouts back up and running as a regular coin should be the current focus.  That is, get it onto exchanges, get an explorer running, maybe its own website, get onto coinmarketcap, etc.  ... After these things are up and working, maybe then it can be ok to mess with its source code. (like fixing the MAX_MONEY problem, but leaving everything else the same, keeping it as a "sprouts classic").

This is just a guess, but even after it gets onto an exchanges, I've noticed that exchanges don't like so many changes to a wallet so frequently, so a modification to the sprouts wallet would have to wait at least 3 or 4 months after it gets onto an exchange.

Yes.  I agree with you arcmetal.  Bastillar is soon releasing an explorer for Sprouts Classic and will provide an update probably tomorrow.  So now is choosing an exchange.  You have mentioned Yobit as one exchange.  Bastillar mentioned Crypto Hub as another possible exchange.  What is the best plan to get it onto an exchange as jennyblockchain mentioned pooling together a donation which I am in favor.  Any other suggestions?

I did just notice a sticky problem.  The sproutsHF group didn't rename their source code, so they are the ones holding the name "sprouts" and the ticker symbol "SPRT".  This is what exchanges use to distinguish between coins.  They won't allow two different coins with the same ticker symbol.

The only solution is a windows, and linux re-compile of the original sprouts code, and a name change to maybe "sprouts-classic" and ticker symbol "SPRTC", or something along these lines. ...

Then the users holding the original sprouts coins will have to update to this new wallet.  Which, of course, includes simply saving their "wallet.dat" file somewhere else, and installing the new "sprouts-classic" wallet, then inserting a copy of their saved "wallet.dat" file.

Until the above happens, I think its still safe to do all sorts of other stuff, like maintain the nodes up and running, and staking, even transferring coins from wallet to wallet is ok...  Maybe even try an air drop for anyone that installs this wallet.  I can give up 1 billion coins, and pass out 10 million to 100 new addresses.

Ok it's running now but it might take 12 hours or more to sync. But mich and i and the server is running and connecting/syncing.

I'll reveal the domain once it's up and fully propagated and we'll have a permanent seed address with updated ip addresses for everyone to use.

So from reading your post, we will not be able to put Sprouts Classic to an exchange until the changes are made to the source code.  I don’t think it will be an issue and we might as well fix the MAX_MONEY issue, re-compile the executable for the new wallet.  

I have yesterday tinkered with the old Sprouts wallet that you posted a link to on my Mac, installed QT Creater to load the project and found numerous issues and plenty of warnings.  There are still errors that I am trying to resolve.  I am just trying to successfully compile the Wallet to run it and see that it shows the GUI wallet.  If that is done, I will have to increment the version.  I don’t know if compiling it on Windows will produce the same errors.  I will keep you posted because if it is successful then I can perform the rename of the project and executable to sprouts-classic.

Sweet!  This means that you got past the errors and warnings.  Make a copy, and mess with it as much as you want.

I haven't used qt creator, but I am going to guess that it should let you cross compile a version for the Mac, linux, and windows.

Today, after a power failure, the wallet got stuck on block 858982. What do I do, again delete the whole file and sync again?

If you are sure that you are connected to other nodes, and its not updating (syncing) new blocks, then the power failure corrupted your files and you will have to delete the whole file and start a new sync. (I know of no other way around it)

Be sure to save your "wallet.dat" file before trying anything.

If someone here hosts a bootstrap file, it might alleviate this situation in the future.

Can you post (copy and paste) the exact warning?  Its possible the fix is an option missing from the linking, or  compiling. The solution should not be a change in the code.

So I re-compiled and there are 233 warnings.  I don't even know if I can copy and paste as I have to do it one by one.  I did notice that the following keeps on repeating:

I have changed the splash page for the Sprouts Classic to be as below:

And the icon is the same but the color more tinted:

Very nice.  Smiley   I like the classic logo.

Am I reading that right?  It says there are over 20 trillion coins.

                     ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It appears that getting a lot of the above is just noise from the compiler.  You can turn those warnings off by removing the option you listed: "-Wsometimes-uninitialized".  Remove that and most of those should turn off.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17705880/gcc-failing-to-warn-of-uninitialized-variable

What is more important is having no errors, then of secondary importance is usually the first and second warning. What are they?  --- Getting rid of the first warning can be helpful, but it may not matter that much, it depends on what it is.

BTW, I messaged a friend of mine who owns an exchange and asked him to consider listing sprouts classic. He said he would look into it. If there is a new cleaned up version of the wallet, it may make it easier to integrate.

So, here is the update in compiling the Sprouts Classic wallet using QT Creator on a Mac:

When I compile it in Debug, Profile and Release it will succeed.

I have branched the gjhiggins/sprouts repository and called it sproutsclassic on Github for others that want to have access to the source code.  I have committed the changes now.  Perhaps I can get assistance to see if I can get rid of warnings which I have mentioned in previous responses.  I have not compiled it in Windows to see what I will get and wanted to know if someone can download QT Creator for Windows then download the source code from GitHub by downloading a software called Sourcetree.

https://www.sourcetreeapp.com

This software is really good in that you can commit changes through the code as a team on Windows or Mac.

What I am finding out is that the executable on the Mac will generate but for some reason the icon does not show when I run it in the taskbar.  I wonder if I have to build it a certain way for deployment.

I will keep you posted.
