lol...

The wallet is importing the blocks now. It's still not connected though.
Maybe an issue with your firewall?
I don't know of too many internet service providers that block those higher ports.
Have you ran any other wallets before?

I've never run any others. It might well be an issue with my firewall. Not sure how to check though.
usually when you first run the wallet, a windows system window will open and ask if you want to block or allow access.

in the control panel, click on windows firewall
click on "allow an app or feature through ..."
see if Emerald is in the list

Windows shows that my firewall is managed by the Norton firewall I have. I checked the Norton firewall settings, Emerald is on the list, and it has a setting of "allow" all inbound and outbound connections.
Guess we will wait for the bootstrap to finish.
I've never used the bootstrap - so I don't know if it will connect while loading it

Seems like this import is going to take a pretty long time. I'm still 213 weeks behind - 77865 out of 4690000 blocks - and it's moving really slow.

So it's likely to be a long wait.

Couple suggestions....

- Could we get an bootstrap? Wallet takes forever to sync.

- Coinmarketcap still doesn't show this thread for ANN, which would be great for new people to see and interact.

I installed the wallet on a different computer. It's connected now. Bootstrap loading is taking a while though.

How do I configure the minerd.exe program? The Emerald website states:

start the miner

     ./minerd -t <threads> -a scrypt -o stratum+tcp://crypto.office-on-the.net:12125 -u <your Emerald address> -p x


Where does this go and what goes in the <threads> placeholder? I'm assuming the <> marks are removed.

Right now when I click on the minerd.exe file, it flashes a small screen for a second and disappears.

Also, do I have to add nodes to my wallet configuration?

There is no need for addnodes
When the wallet starts, it looks at a dedicated node for connections.

as for cpu mining - the ./minerd is for linux


For windows, if you want to join a pool, the easiest would be to make a batch file.
open up notepad and saving as START.BAT

Code:
minerd --url stratum+tcp://thepool.address.goes.here:poolportnumber --userpass USERNAME.WORKERNAME:PASSWORD
the start.bat should go into the same folder as the minerd.exe

You will of course need to sign up for a pool, there should be several listed on the Emerald web site - just click the link in your wallet to open a browser to the home page.
Most pools have a help section that will explain things better, like how to make a worker, what port number to use ...

If you want to simply use your wallet to mine, you can add the line:
gen=1

to your emerald.conf file.(which you might have to create - in the same directory as the wallet.dat file C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Emerald )

emerald.conf
Code:
rpcuser=bla-bla
rpcpassword=bla-bla-bla
gen=1

The gen=1 turns on the miner that's built into most wallets -
unfortunately, mining difficulty is high enough that I would be surprised if you found more that one block in a 24 hour time.

most mining pools are setup so that you get a share of each block found in proportion to the work you do.

Mining from a pool, the emerald.conf file that I have to make will contain:

make up what you want.
you will not have to remember them.

Normally, windows-QT wallet's don't require a config file.
So if you want to add things like:
addnode=
gen=
maxconnections=

you would have to create the config file.

If you are going to mine with a pool, you do not have to mess with a config file - it is not needed.

OK. Thanks for the help. I have one more issue.

I stopped the wallet while it was loading from bootstrap. After opening it back up again, it's stuck. The connections are there, but the import is stuck.

well now.
I have never tried using the bottstrap - so  have never ran into that problem.
My first thought is the wallet is "starting over" with the import - but you can't see anything happening until it gets back up to the block you stopped it at.
You should be able to tell if the hard drive light on your pc is mostly on - or flickering a lot.

the other option would be to try again (what a pain)
shut down the wallet.
remove everything in the Emerald folder except the wallet.dat and bootstrap file (emerald.conf if you need it)
and start the wallet again

note:
the wallet file is what holds your emerald addresses.
If you ever mess up that file - you will loose your coins. There is no way to remake those addresses - unless you make a backup of the wallet.dat file

very important once you start getting emerald crypto (or any other cryptos)

there are a few ways to backup your wallet and/or addresses - but we can go over that later. one thing at a time.

It started back up, thankfully. What a relief. Now, ...lol... my antivrus program keeps removing minerd.exe.

I specifically excluded minerd's path in my antivirus program (Norton).

Looks like CryptoBroker won't work with minerd.exe either.

Guess you could put together a second computer just for mining.
If you do - I would suggest making a gpu mining rig. you can start with one gpu (video card) like a R9 270 from AMD. there are better cards but they cost more.
Last time I bought one, a r9 270 was around $200

Of course you could install the gpu in your windows machine and use a different mining program - there are lots to chose from

Then again, if you are going to really get into it - maybe make a mining rig using linux  - lot's and lot's of "how to's" on the net.
