If you need help or you're New to roms and emulation these are some tips

First thing first You need an Emulator i suggest RetroArch is a Newbie Friendly good all in one emulator this is a video to how to setup and use ReTrOaRcH
OpenEmu FOR MAC USERS THAT WILL NOT USE RETRO ARCH BECAUSE IT'S NOT ENOUGH LOOKING LIKE MAC UI OR THEY HAVE AN OCD OR something like that it's good anyways ( i didn't use it bc i'm not a mac user )

and a download Manger
Jdownloader ( download the jar version ) A photo to explain what to download (don't download the .exe version it has an adware in it )
or idm u can trial reset with this
a torrent clients (credits to Piracy wiki)
for mobile ( torrent clients ) [credits to Piracy wiki]
stay away from [credits to Piracy wiki]
second you need sources to download roms these are the best sites + some tips
sites :
ziperto
No intro romset ( you can download it directly without a torrent you CAN FROM HERE ) (If you don't want to download the whole romset for the system press view content )
AlvRo's Collection
Vimm's Lair
The Eye
GamesTorrents ( of course if u can torrent )
MEGA-ROM
N(itro)blog
THE MEGATHREAD
RomsUniverse
MOBAsuite
IDK?? A WIKI FOR ROMpacks?????
The Old Megathread idk why u need it
A guy who uploaded some roms but he didn't get attention
ROMstorge ( idk how to use this site )
Roms WIKI
Another ROMs site
Edgeemu
EmulatorGames ( the name is baaaaaaaad )
ROMsDownload
WoW Roms
cdROMance
Startgame ( wtf is this name )
Retrostic
ROMulation
If u Want to Check if the site is safe go to here and comment ur site url
Tips :
Tip #1 : If you're in a country that hate piracy like USA or Germany ( i think Germany have dmca or something ?? idk ) etc. stay away from torrent and stay away from http sites
( download Https Everywhere extension and enable encrypt all sites eligible option by pressing on the icon of https everywhere ) even if your browser included with it . because it will warn you if the site is http...
Tip #2 : FBI will not raid your house ( because fbi will not waste there time on you )
Tip #3 : https is your best friend because it's encrypted that means if you go to a https roms site
your isp will see (random numbers and letters) .com/.net/.org/.to/.site etc.
Tip #4 : install an adblock i suggest Ublock Origin
Tip #5 : install a pop-up blocker if you have a chromium based browser like Brave, Chrome, New Edge etc. i suggest this ( if you know a better one please give me the link ) poperblocker
Tip #6 The MegaThread is your OTHER BEST FRIEND if you want an rom head to the megathread and press ctrl + F and search ;)
Tip #7 DON'T DO NOT OPEN ANY ANY ANY .MSI .EXE/.DMG/.DEB or ANY OTHER FILE THAT you CAN OPEN WITHOUT AN EMULATOR THE FILE IT'S 2000% A VIRUS ( EXCEPT WHEN you DOWNLOAD RETRO ARCH [ or any other emulator OF COURSE ] ) AND DON'T OPEN .BAT FILES IT CAN DELETE SYSTEM32 FILE AND IT'S ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FILES IN WINDOWS
Tip #8 Emulating is Legal but Downloading ROMs is ILEGAL ( OF COURSE IF you're LIVING IN A COUNTRY THAT DMCA IS A HOLY THING ) ;-)
Tip #9 If you're suspicious of a file u can scan it on VirusTotal or Hybird Analysis ( you need to upload the file because it will open it on a vm in there sever ).
Tip #10 I recommend using a controller if you have a xbox controller just connect it to your pc and you're good to go BUT if you have a dualshock controller (ps controller )
use DS4 Windows ( if you have a windows pc ) ( I Know it's the fork bc the og creator stopped working on it in 2016 or somthing like that )
or any other controller .
Tip #11 If you download a rom and it came in .rar .zip .7z .r001( if the rom came with multiple files like .r001 .r002 .r003... you need to extract just a one file) etc. you can use 7-ZIP or Winrar ( don't worry 40 days trial doesn't end ).

Tip #12 if the rom came in this order rom.rar.exe don't think to open it and if you hide the extension file from showing from the file name it will show like rom.rar but it's actually a .exe or .dmg etc.

Tip #13 if you have a linux pc or a mac that doesn't mean you will not get infected even Temple OS have malwares ( if you don't what's a malware is just search )​.
Tip #14 if u tired of link shorters and etc. use universal Bypass
Tip #15 Some good emulators :
Dolphin a wii and gamecube emulator ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
Citra 3DS emulator ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
BSNES HD beta if u want to play snes games on HD
PCSX2 the best ps2 emulator
EPSXE a little bit old but it's good (ps1)
DON'T use zsnes ( i guy on the comments said that )
RPCS3 PS3 ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
Xenia Xbox 360 ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
Cemu WiiU Emulator ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
a Decryptor for 3ds games if citra won't open the rom HERE
DS DeSmuME (OLD) ( if u have a good ds emulator give me the link pls )
Project64 N64
DOSBox DOS emulator ( check the compatibility list to check if the game work )
IF U HAVE any other emulator pls link it in the comments <3
Tip #16
Romsmania
CoolRoms
etc. are NOT SAFE
if you have any other tips share it =)

[ANN][ANDROID MINING][AIRDROP] NewEnglandcoin: Scrypt RandomSpike

New England
New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/
NewEnglandcoin
Symbol: NENG
NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number
Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

Decentralization and Community Driven NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools Warning to Big ASIC Miners Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708 (2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

Creating a Headless Staking Node on Ubuntu 18.04

Creating a Headless Staking Node on Ubuntu 18.04
##UPDATE## Step 8 - Option 2, has some bugs in the final build process. i haven't had time to work them out yet!

This guide will take you through building and running a headless x42 Full Node! The OS I am using here is Ubuntu 18.04, this guide picks up from a complete/fresh ubuntu install.
This is meant to setup a staking node and so this guide will run you through building, configuring and setting up staking. It will not cover sending transactions or anything else.
The things we are going to do:
  • Step 1 - Install .net core
  • Step 2 - Download The x42 Node Source & Compile It
  • Step 3 - Setting The x42 Node Up To Run On Boot
  • Step 4 - Setup A New Wallet
  • Step 5 - Configure The x42 Daemon
  • Step 6 - Get Address
  • Step 7 - Check Balance
  • Step 8 - Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node
  • Step 8 - [Option 1 - Use Installer] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node
  • Step 8 - [Option 2 - Build/Compile UI Only] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node # BROKEN#

Step 1 - Install .net Core

Here is the reference link:
https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/linux-package-manageubuntu18-04/sdk-current
Register Microsoft Key’s & Install Their repos:
cd /tmp wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/18.04/packages-microsoft-prod.deb sudo dpkg -i packages-microsoft-prod.deb sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt -y install apt-transport-https sudo apt update sudo apt -y install dotnet-sdk-2.2 
Microsoft collect telemetry data by default, if you are part of the “tin foil hat brigade” you can set the following environment variable to turn it off:
echo "DOTNET_CLI_TELEMETRY_OPTOUT=1" >> /etc/environment 
now you should be at a point where .net core is installed on your system… that wasn’t so hard was it! You can check by running the following command:
dotnet--list-sdks 
The output should look like this:
$ dotnet --list-sdks 2.2.103 [/usshare/dotnet/sdk] 

Step 2 - Download & Compile The x42 Node

This part assumes you have GIT installed, if not:
apt -y install git 
Now to pull down the source and compile it!
cd ~/ git clone https://github.com/x42protocol/X42-FullNode.git # “cd” into the source folder cd X42-FullNode/src/ 
Now .net core uses NuGet for package management, before we compile, we need to pull down all of the required packages.. its as simple as running (this will take a couple of minutes) inside of “X42-FullNode/src/”:
dotnet restore 
now we are ready to compile the source, execute (inside of “X42-FullNode/src/”):
dotnet build --configuration Release 
ignore the yellow warnings, this is just the rosyln compiler having a grumble.. if you get red ones then something went wrong! The “--configuration Release” will strip out all debug symbols and slim things down.. only a little, this optional parameter is not mandatory.
Once this is done everything is built/compiled, you can run the daemon directly from the repository, this can be done by going to:
cd ~/X42-FullNode/src/x42.x42D/bin/Release/netcoreapp2.1 dotnet x42.x42D.dll 
this will kick off the node, however if you exit SSH at this time it will kill the process! however I always recommend copying out the binaries to a separate folder. This can be done with the following:
mkdir ~/x42node mv ~/X42-FullNode/src/x42.x42D/bin/Release/netcoreapp2.1/*.* ~/x42node/ 
now we have everything we need to run the node outside the git repository! What we need to do now is run the node and have it create the default x42.conf file.. so
cd ~/x42node dotnet x42.x42D.dll 
feel free to hit “CTRL + C” to exit the application after a couple of seconds, by then the folders/files would have been created at the following path:
~/.x42node/x42/x42Main/ 

Step 3 - Setting The x42 Node Up To Run on Boot

Now we are going to create a service file so our x42 node automatically starts when the system is rebooted.
THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT BELOW.. CHANGE THE ##USER## to the username your currently using as these files are within your home directory!
We need to drop to root for this..
sudo -i cat < /etc/systemd/system/x42node.service [Unit] Description=x42 Node [Service] WorkingDirectory=/home/##USER##/x42node ExecStart=/usbin/dotnet /home/##USER##/x42node/x42.x42D.dll Restart=always # Restart service after 10 seconds if the dotnet service crashes: RestartSec=10 SyslogIdentifier=x42node User=##USER## Environment=ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT=Development [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target EOF 
To enable the service, run the following (as the root user):
systemctl enable x42node.service 
BOOM.. the node isn’t running yet.. but next time the system restarts it will automatically run!
now lets exit out of root!
exit 
We can now start the node up and begin downloading blocks, by running the following command:
sudo systemctl start x42node.service 
if you want to check its loaded and see some of the output, you can run:
sudo systemctl status x42node.service 
an example of the output:
$ sudo systemctl status x42node.service ● x42node.service - x42 Node Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/x42node.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-01-24 15:47:55 UTC; 14s ago Main PID: 5456 (dotnet) Tasks: 23 (limit: 1112) CGroup: /system.slice/x42node.service └─5456 /usbin/dotnet /home/darthnoodle/x42node/x42.x42D.dll Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Batch Size: 0 Mb (0 headers) Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Cache Size: 0/50 MB Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: =======Mempool======= Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: MempoolSize: 0 DynamicSize: 0 kb OrphanSize: 0 Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: info: Stratis.Bitcoin.Connection.ConnectionManagerBehavior[0] Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Peer '[::ffff:86.184.76.255]:52342' connected (outbound), agent 'x42:1.2.13 (70012)', height 213920 Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: info: Stratis.Bitcoin.Connection.ConnectionManagerBehavior[0] Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node[5456]: Peer '[::ffff:86.184.76.255]:52342' offline, reason: 'Receiving cancelled.'. All node screen output can be found in the /valog/syslog file. 

Step 4 - Setup a New Wallet

With the Node running, we now need to setup and/or restore a wallet!
Everything will be performed through the API’s, however by default these API’s are listening on localhost (127.0.0.1), if you are connecting in remotely then this would be a problem since you cant hit that IP. The solution, SSH TUNNEL!
Execute the following command on your local system:
ssh -L 42220:localhost:42220 @ 
This binds the local port (on your system) with 127.0.0.1:42220 on the remote system, once you have executed the command you can type the following address in your laptop/desktop’s web browser and be able to access the API’s:
http://127.0.0.1:42220/swaggeindex.html 
It should look something like this:
https://preview.redd.it/9lzeg3vob8d21.jpg?width=482&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b5d574998816056140d5d6de7b03c56772a892fe
To Create a new wallet, first we have to generate some mnemonic works (e.g. the seed), you can do that by going to the following API:
/api/Wallet/mnemonic 
Hit the “Try it out” button which then prompts you for 2 fields:
https://preview.redd.it/dvbdllfrb8d21.jpg?width=722&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=766d14bafba6facbcd56d31c63c0012748e682e5
Enter “English” and I would recommend 24 words as this greatly increases the seed strength! Once that is done you hit execute and then scroll down to see the “Response Body”, this should contain the mnemonic which you are going to use to create the wallet! This looks something like below:
https://preview.redd.it/6p4q0rsub8d21.jpg?width=603&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=44b9265626467a43ca670b134c4d28187f475c2e
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, BACKUP THIS MNEMONIC TO A SAFE SECURE LOCATION THAT IS ENCRYPTED!!!
So now we have our mnemonic, its time to generate the wallet, for this we need to use the API:
/api/Wallet/create
There are a number of parameters which are required in order to create a wallet:
WalletCreationRequest{ mnemonic string password* string passphrase* string name* string } 
It should be noted that the password and mnemonic are is the most important parts of this request where the “password” will encrypt the wallet and Is required to unlock it.
  • Hit the “Try it out” button
  • input the necessary data
  • Insert the mnemonic
  • Put a password & passphrase
  • “Name” is what your wallet will be called
It should look something like the following:
https://preview.redd.it/958ttfbxb8d21.jpg?width=603&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ce48336436ea4b469b5e87513da802de0bf444ee
Hit “Execute”, the “Loading” sign may spin for a few minutes while the wallet is created… once the wallet has been created the “Response Body” will return the mnemonic you have just used.. we now have a wallet!!
HOWEVER IT IS NOT LOADED INTO THE NODE JUST YET!
This is where we will now jump back out and to configure the node to automatically load the wallet and automatically start staking when it first loads.
AGAIN BACKUP YOUR MNEMONIC AND PASSWORD, MAKE SURE THEY ARE ENCRYPTED AND STORED SOMEWHERE SAFE!

Step 5 - Configure The x42 Daemon

Now we are going to modify the x42.conf file in order to automatically load our wallet and start staking 😊
First things first, lets stop our node by running the following command:
sudo systemctl stop x42node.service 
CD to the following folder and view its contents:
~/.x42node/x42/x42Main ls -lah 
within that folder there should be 2 files you are interested in:
-rw-r--r-- 1 darthnoodle darthnoodle 18K Jan 28 16:01 TestWallet.wallet.json -rw-rw-r-- 1 darthnoodle darthnoodle 3.1K Jan 24 15:25 x42.conf 
So TestWallet.wallet.json is our physical wallet that will be loaded, but for right now we want to modify the x42.conf file.. fire up your favourite text editor (if you use VI you’re a masochist)..
nano x42.conf 
The area we are interested in is the following:
####Miner Settings#### #Enable POW mining. #mine=0 #Enable POS. #stake=0 #The address to use for mining (empty string to select an address from the wallet). #mineaddress= #The wallet name to use when staking. #walletname= #Password to unlock the wallet. #walletpassword= #Maximum block size (in bytes) for the miner to generate. #blockmaxsize=1000000 #Maximum block weight (in weight units) for the miner to generate. #blockmaxweight=1000000 #Enable splitting coins when staking. #enablecoinstakesplitting=1 #Minimum size of the coins considered for staking, in satoshis. #minimumstakingcoinvalue=10000000 #Targeted minimum value of staking coins after splitting, in satoshis. #minimumsplitcoinvalue=10000000000 
Uncomment (remove the #) of the following lines and change their value:
stake=1 (changed to 1) walletname=TestWallet (changed to our Wallet Name) walletpassword=password123 (changed to the wallet password) 
save the file and exit back to the command prompt, now we shall restart the node with the following command:
sudo systemctl status x42node.service 
now the wallet is automatically loaded and ready for action!
YES I KNOW YOU HAVE PUT YOUR PASSWORD IN CLEARTEXT, THIS IS WHERE YOU SHOULD HARDEN YOUR BOX. IF THEY CAN GET TO THE POINT WHERE THEY CAN READ YOUR CONF FILE THEY CAN JUST GRAB YOUR WALLET AND BRUTEFORCE THE PASSWORD.
You can check its loaded by going back to the API and executing the following command:
/Dashboard 
Or execute the following command on the NODE:
curl -X GET "http://127.0.0.1:42220/Dashboard" -H "accept: application/json" 
both will produce the same output, if you scroll to the bottom you should see something like this:
======Wallets====== TestWallet/account 0, Confirmed balance: 0.00000000 Unconfirmed balance: 0.00000000 
This means the wallet is loaded and ready for action!!

Step 6 - Get Addresses

Next thing you are probably going to want is a receive address and to check the balance and TX history.. so lets start with getting an address!
Go to the following API:
/api/Wallet/unusedaddress 
Fill in the Wallet name which is “TestWallet” (in this example) and “account 0” (which is the first/default account):
https://preview.redd.it/ayri5jk0c8d21.jpg?width=602&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2d16bbb78da49c0125d24d0834c9454d702cb7a1
Hit execute and you should have an x42 address within the “Response Body”:

https://preview.redd.it/tmc495j3c8d21.jpg?width=349&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b00177f66a9e24c980d3c6d4e532a33cbf3fb0bc
BOOM… ok now we can receive funds! 😊

Step 7 - Check TX History

Go to the API and the following call:
/api/Wallet/history 
The 2 fields we are most concerned about are:
https://preview.redd.it/lw194af6c8d21.jpg?width=602&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=27e264bc008879355ff5b9c50a0a5cb06f16e960
Input the name of the wallet and account you want to view the history of, then hit execute. The other fields can be black. This will return a list of TX’s that the wallet has received:
This should look like the following:
https://preview.redd.it/x1hgargac8d21.jpg?width=585&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4fd25f22772f4bcec523a6e82b321ae8146a2c75
There is an easier way of doing this, that doesn’t require you to be connected to your node.. especially if your only interested in viewing your staking rewards… THE EXPLORER!
Access the following URL:
https://explorer.x42.tech/address/ 
this will allow you to easily see all TX’s associated with this address, it should look something like below:
https://preview.redd.it/e480grscc8d21.jpg?width=601&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0f8a9ebc7944dfcc73f7df659bd839bb983ba90c
… and your done! By this point your node should be running, staking and you have an easy way to view transactions/rewards 😊


Step 8 - Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node

The UI utilises a combination of technologies, however the important part is the code attempts to access the x42 Node API on 127.0.0.1:42220.
So you have 2 options here:
  1. Download the Wallet Installers
  2. Compile The UI Yourselves
Pick the option that best suits you given the pros/cons below:
Option 1 - Pro's/Cons
Pro's
  • If you use the installer, its quick and easy.
Cons
  • This also installs an x42 node on your system which runs when the UI loads.
  • If you dont setup an SSH tunnel before running the wallet the local node will bind to the port and the tunnel wont work.. you will be connecting to the local wallet!!
Option 2 - Pro's/Cons
Pro's
  • You only run the UI, the x42 node is not installed
  • you dont have a superfluous node running, downloading blocks on your local system
Cons
  • Time Consuming
  • Have to download dependencies and manually compile the code

Pre-Requirement - Needed For Both Options!!
As previously mentioned, the UI attempts to access the API's on 127.0.0.1:42220, however our node isnt running on our local system. IN ORDER TO GET IT WORKING YOU NEED TO HAVE AN SSH TUNNEL, THIS TUNNEL NEEDS TO REMAIN ACTIVE WHENEVER YOU WANT TO ACCESS THE WALLET.
this can be done by executing the following command:
ssh -L 42220:localhost:42220 @ 


Step 8 - [Option 1 - Use Installer] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node

Download and install the UI/Wallet & Node from:
https://github.com/x42protocol/X42-FullNode-UI/releases

DO NOT RUN THE WALLET YET!
Those of us who dont want to run a local node and just want the UI, execute the following commands (as an administrator):
cd C:\Program Files\x42 Core\resources\daemon\ ren x42.x42D.exe x42.x42D.exe.bak 
The above is with Windows, if your are in *NIX then locate the daemon and rename it (i will update how to do that/where to find it shortly)
Setup the SSH tunnel as outlined above, Execute the wallet and it will load, however you will see an exception:

https://preview.redd.it/9os5h8q7scd21.jpg?width=550&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ac45ed7bc987917142075c61fb486e7d71f820d1
dont worry, this is just the wallet trying to execute/start the x42 node which we dont want, if all works according to plan.. after you click "OK" you should now be presented with the wallet UI and have the option to select what wallet you would like to load:

https://preview.redd.it/hnyt0b4mscd21.jpg?width=958&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a47df710a804375d8363ffcd77d1ede2862b9b4d
... DONE!

Step 8 - [Option 2 - Build/Compile UI Only] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node ###BROKEN

THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS, THE ELECTRON BUILD DOESNT WANT TO COMPILE BECAUSE SOME CODE IS MANGLED SOMEWHERE!!

Ok, this is the fun bit! .. we need to install the following dependencies. these instructions are written for a Windows system but it should be easy enough to perform the same on a *NIX system.
Install Dependencies
In order to build the wallet UI, you need to install the following components:
  • git
  • NodeJS
  • Electron Builder
First thing you need to do is install git, so download and install the package:
https://gitforwindows.org/
Next you need to install NodeJS, download and install the package:
https://nodejs.org/en/download/
Next we need to install the node package manager:
npm install npx –verbose 
next we need to make sure we have Visual Studio build tools and Python (2.7) installed, this can be done by executing the following (AS AN ADMINISTRATOR!):
npm install -g --production windows-build-tools 
this will install the necessary tools to build C#/C++ code and python 2.7, this could take some time! When its done you should have something like the following;

https://preview.redd.it/5ekfy5g1kcd21.jpg?width=490&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f65196dee6f78f2ececec5ee8b5df1044d68f635

Build & Install - Windows
Create a temp folder to navigate to a folder where you want to download the GIT repository, execute the following command:
git clone https://github.com/x42protocol/X42-FullNode-UI.git 
This will clone the repository into the folder, it will only clone the wallet and not the Node source! now lets CD into the folder and build the UI:
cd X42-FullNode-UI\FullNode.UI npm install 
This will download and install all dependencies (can take a while), at the end you should see something like..

https://preview.redd.it/0zfbfxa8kcd21.jpg?width=601&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=438d072a6ab2bc7a3d84a8dfe773968acc762bc7
Now the stock UI has a number of third-party libraries which contain some vulnerabilities, being a security conscious person, ive also run:
npm audit fix 
when this is done, we have fixed most of the package vulnerabilities 😊 We also get a complaint about the typescript library being too new for the version of angular in use, so run the following command to install the additional dependency:
npm install [email protected]">=2.4.2 <2.7.0" 
now its time to build the UI, execute the following:
npm run build:prod 
once complete you should see something like the following..

https://preview.redd.it/56vf9zfckcd21.jpg?width=601&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=31b72daff9ab5001843cba529a7bd38c76fd099d
Next its time to compile the electron binary, it should be noted that the build/package process utilises AppVoyer which is not installed and if you attempt to build right now you will get the following error:
cannot expand pattern "${productName}-v${version}-setup-${os}-${env.arch}.${ext}": env arch is not defined. 
To fix this we need to modify the build file, this is a quick one liner that can do it:
powershell -Command "(gc electron-builder.json) -replace 'env.arch', 'arch' | Out-File electron-builder.json" 
Essentially the offending line for Windows is..
"artifactName": "${productName}-v${version}-setup-${os}-${env.arch}.${ext}" 
The build cannot resolve “env.arch”, so the above one liner replaces “env.arch” with “arch” which works 😊
execute the following command:
npx electron-builder build --windows --x64 
At present i get the following error, no matter what i do.. and ive ran out of time to go hunting about.. if anyone has any ideas on how to fix then please post in here or message me on discord:

https://preview.redd.it/t66rtuqdtcd21.jpg?width=918&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a3f1a5ff682586348909c67645ca7ae9454922ff


Happy staking!

v3.4 is the thoroughly tested Stable Version. v3.5 is experimental at the time of this writing. Thanks!
COSMiC v3.4 for Windows thread: https://www.reddit.com/0xbitcoin/comments/8ewvo9/miner_cosmic_v34t_cuda_miner_for_windows_64_linux
And for Linux: https://www.reddit.com/0xbitcoin/comments/8g92v4/build_cosmic_v34t_for_linux_with_autostart/
(Post remains for archival purposes: )
This is the first in a series of builds I will be posting here and on the Discord server that incorporate the latest updates to the various forks of the community open-source CUDA miner, plus my own optimizations and improvements (nickname: Hashburner builds). In addition to being as fast as possible, I'm trying to make these as reliable and user-friendly as possible, with quality documentation.
I am posting two archives of V1 today. The first is just the binaries(executables) for Windows X64, Mac OS X and Linux. I have only tested the Windows version- so please let me know your results! The second has the binaries, source code, a handy batch file and all the node modules you (should) need to make any changes you'd like and recompile. Both versions also have a 0xBTC.conf sample file I set up for my GTX1060-3GB as Device #0. Feel free to edit it or remove for the hardcoded intensity of 27. Same format as in Azlehria's builds, see Readme.txt.
Binaries Only (open with 7zip or similar): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zL-hpiyxP2kwU3wIuQz6SDCPWFar-V76
Development Version (with binaries, source, node-modules, etc): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1R0A3hqIjDUp9J1JQLpetIgdtMHDd_Hmd (See the Readme.txt for details on how to build from source.)

Partial Changelog (See Readme.txt):

Please let me know your results along with your hardware configuration so that I can customize the next builds for as wide a range of hardware as possible! On my Pascal card (GTX1060-3GB w/ +122 MHz Core, -150 MHz VRAM), I am getting ~515 MH/s with this build.
Enjoy and Happy Hashing! - Lt. Tofu a.k.a. Mag517
p.s. How do you like the nickname for our community miner? Also, expect HB V1.1 in the next day or two.

Tacotime mentioned a hard fork proposal to never let the block reward drop below 1 coin:

I assume this is merely delaying the problem, however. I proposed a fixed annual debasement (say 2%) with a tx fee cap of like 0.001% of the current block reward (or whatever sounds reasonable). That way we still get the spam protection without worrying about fee escalation down the road."

These are not deep optimizations, just cleaning up the code to work as intended.
At 100 H/s, with 500k iterations, 70 cycles per L3 memory access, we're now at 3.5 GHz which is reasonably close. So the algorithm is finally memory-bound, as it was originally intended to be. But as delivered by the bytecode developers not even close.
I know this is going to sound like tooting our own horn but this is another example of the kind of dirty tricks you can expect from the 80% premine crowd and the good work being done in the name of the community by the Monero developers.
Assuming they had the reasonable, and not deoptimized, implementation of the algorithm as designed all along (which is likely), the alleged "two year history" of bytecoin was mined on 4-8 PCs. It's really one of the shadiest and sleaziest premines scams yet, though this shouldn't be surprising because in every type of scam, the scams always get sneakier and more deceptive over time (the simple ones no longer work)."

GPUs are just computers though, so it is certainly possible to mine this on a GPU, and there probably will be a some GPU miner, but won't be so much faster as to put small scale CPU miners out of business (probably -- absent some unknown algorithmic flaw).
Everyone focuses on botnets because it has been so long since regular users were able to effectively mine a coin (due to every coin rapidly going high end GPU and ASIC) that the idea that "users" could vastly outnumber "miners" (botnet or otherwise) isn't even on the radar.
The vision here is a wallet that asks you when you want to install: "Do you want to devote some of you CPU power to help secure the network. You will be eligible to receive free coins as a reward (recommended) [check box]." Get millions of users doing that and it will drive down the value of mining to where neither botnets nor professional/industrial miners will bother, and Satoshi's original vision of a true p2p currency will be realized.

-3571: "Tacotime wanted the thread name and OP to use the word privacy instead of anonymity, but I made the change for marketing reasons. Other coins do use the word anonymous improperly, so we too have to play the marketing game. Most users will not bother looking at details to see which actually has more privacy; they'll assume anonymity > privacy. In a world with finite population, there's no such thing as anonymity. You're always "1 of N" possible participants.
Zero knowledge gives N -> everyone using the currency, ring signatures give N -> your choice, and CoinJoin gives N -> people who happen to be spending around the same amount of money as you at around the same time. This is actually the critical weakness of CoinJoin: the anonymity set is small and it's fairly susceptible to blockchain analysis. Its main advantage is that you can stick to Bitcoin without hard forking.
Another calculated marketing decision: I made most of the OP about ring signatures. In reality, stealth addressing (i.e. one-time public keys) already provides you with 90% of the privacy you need. Ring signatures are more of a trump card that cannot be broken. But Bitcoin already has manual stealth addressing so the distinguishing technological factor in CryptoNote is the use of ring signatures.
This is why I think having a coin based on CoinJoin is silly: Bitcoin already has some privacy if you care enough. A separate currency needs to go way beyond mediocre privacy improvements and provide true indistinguishably. This is true thanks to ring signatures: you can never break the 1/N probability of guessing correctly. There's no additional circumstantial evidence like with CoinJoin (save for IP addresses, but that's a problem independent of cryptocurrencies)."

[android monero widget built]
This is a dense digest of the first several thousand messages on the definitive Monero thread.
A lot of things happened in this stressful days and most are recorded here. It can be summarized in this:
  • 28th April: Othe and zone117x assume the GUI wallet and CN pools tasks.
  • 30th April: First NoodleDoodle's miner optimization.
  • 11th May: First Monero exchanger
  • 13th May: Open source pool code is ready.
  • 16th May: First pool mined block.
  • 19th May: Monero in poloniex
  • 20th May: Monero +1100 bitcoin 24h trading volume in Poloniex.
  • 21st May: New official miner optimization x4 speed (accumulated optimization x12-x16). Open source wolf0's CPU miner released.
  • 25th May: partnership with i2p
  • 28th May: The legendary super-optimized miner is leaked. Currently running x90 original speed. Hedge of the "cloud farmers" is over in the cpu mining.
  • 2nd June: Monero at last has a logo. Ticker symbol changes to the definitive XMR (former MRO)
  • 4th June: Claymore's open source GPU miner.
  • 10th June: Monero's "10,000 bitcoin pizza" (2500 XMR paintig). Deterministic seed-based wallets (recover wallet with a 24 word seed)
  • March 2015 – tail emission added to code
  • March 2016 – monero hard forks to 2 min block and doubles block reward
There basically two things in here that can be used to attack Monero:
  • Crippled miner Gave unfair advantage to those brave enough to risk money and time to optimize and mine Monero.
  • Fast curve emission non-bitcoin-like curve as initially advertised and as it was widely accepted as suitable
Though we have to say two things to support current Monero community and devs:
  • The crippled miner was coded either by Bytecoin or CryptoNote, and 100% solved within a month by Monero community
  • The fast curve emission was a TFT miscalculation. He forgot to consider that as he was halving the block target he was unintentionally doubling the emission rate.

USB Mining Project

I found an old (abandon?) project that boots Arch Linux to run a bitcoin/litecoin miner automatically using cgminer.
Wonder if and how to modify it for XMR.
I've done some simple programing before in C and played around a bit with Raspberry pi, but this Github project is a little above me.

What gfx card should I choose for linux ?

I'm currently running arch (Gnome) with open source drivers on a 6950 that I'm going to move to a bitcoin-miner. I'll need a replacement (with similar or better performance for same price and I'm wondering if a 7950 would be a good option (with open source drivers) or if I'd be better off with a nvidia card (again, I prefer opensource drivers). I don't really game on my linux, I have a windows 8 in dualboot for that ...
Does anybody have some experience that could help me make my choice ?

CGMiner : [All devices disabled, cannot mine!]

Hey guys,
I am a Bitcoin newbie. I am just starting out to do BTC mining. I looked up some online resources and wanted to try out mining. So I got CGMiner as everybody said that was one of the best miners out there. But I always keep getting the following error message :
[2013-05-01 16:52:03] All devices disabled, cannot mine!
I am running Arch linux on a dual core intel machine. I have a ATI Radeon graphics card. Following from lspci :
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV516 [Radeon X1300/X1550 Series]
And I have the a driver installed for the GPU as well :
ttm 64499 1 radeon
Could somebody explain what is going on and what I need to do in order to fix it? This is the first time I am running any miner and all I did was just say cgminer on the command line.
Edit : Edited for clarity

[Build Ready] Bitcoin/Linux/Windows build (noob here, helped by a pro)

Hey guys this is my first build but my friend helped me so everything should be in order, I just want a sanity check:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=11967569 (I'm also saving about 70$ from Newegg promos)
Monitor: http://www.ecost.com/p/LG-Electronics-Monitors/product~dpno~8256700~pdp.gcidgfd (I already have 1 23inch monitor but it is not LED backlit and I don't have access to it until late August)
Graphics Cards: Two Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 XTREME are already in the mail
Reaoning: I plan on running some flavor of linux as my main OS (probably Arch Linux). Windows 7 will run either concurrently with Xen Hypervisor or in a Virtual Machine -- occasionally I may boot into Windows 7 for games if I can't get graphics card access through the hypervisor).
Additionally, I will be mining bitcoins with the two GPUs most of the time (whenever I am not using them for anything else). I plan on putting the HDDs into a RAID array (I'm even sort of considering a 4th one since they are so cheap).
I am a either double majoring or single majoring in ECE and/or CS and plan on using this to compile and manage large projects and possibly run resource intensive programs.
I tend to be lazy with my tabs and I don't like closing programs (I need a lot of RAM -- also running two OSs will take RAM)
I have three points that I'd like others' opinions on (other than an overall sanity check).
Case: Can I fit everything in this case (without a big risk of heat problems)? My friend definitely thinks so, but I just want to make sure. I would rather have the mid case.
PSU: If the bitcoin market starts to become really profitable again (like where it was a few weeks ago) I will probably get a 3rd GPU and possibly that bitcoin miner ASIC that's supposedly being released in Q4. In my wishlist I currently have an 850Watt PSU but I'm actually leaning towards the Cooler Master 1KWatt PSU now
Monitor: Do you think there is a huge risk getting a refurbished monitor? If so what 23 inch LED back-lit monitor would you recommend?
Thanks for your help!

ELI5: Adding applications to Arch boot [Raspberry Pi]

I've searched on forums; I've searched on Google; I've searched the Arch Wiki. I still can't find a straightforward answer that I can attempt.
I am running Arch on my Raspberry Pi. I need to do a few things.
  1. Connect to a Wifi Network in boot
  2. (There is probably a better way to do this) Start modules for the GPIO pins. The manual commands for this are:
    # modprobe i2c-dev
    # modprobe i2c-bcm2708
  3. Run a python script as root user (access to gpio pins)
I can get them to run just fine, but I need to do it headless as I can't run them every time the device reboots.
I do know my way around the Linux terminal.
Before you say "Why don't you switch to Raspian?", I'm using a development of Arch called Minepeon with USB Bitcoin miners.
Thanks for the help.
