The error above should not cause a exist of the app. Mind to post the last lines in debug.log file?
there is no debug.log file in the bin folder. where might i find it or does it need to be run with command line options?

my windows wallet got stuck at 114527. Earlier today I had it all synced up. my remote dashd clients are up to date (elbereth blockchain explorer)

I guess I'm curious, am I losing the blockchain at random points or are these numbers I'm throwing out coinciding with superblocks?

You should find the debug.log in your dashcore folder, which is hidden. In linux, it's in /home/.dashcore In windows it's usually in appdata/roaming/dashcore

it's generated when you start the wallet for the first time :)

The debug.log file gets stored in your datadir (next to your wallet.dat) - on Windows this is most commonly %APPDATA%\Data

well that might partially explain it . i have dash 12.0 (prod) running already on the machine that doesnt work (and debug.log isnt generated at all when i run the test app)
edit:
I moved the existing dash folder from
C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\Dash to C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\Dash1
however the test dash-qt.exe still falls over. The folder is not recreated by the test app so there is no debug.log to analyze

Usually it is not a problem to have multiple wallets on the same machine.

Thinking more about 12.1: Could you please check for a folder C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\Dashcore? We have changed the location in 12.1, so that might be the place to look for...

Hmm, please try to create a shortcut to dash-qt and add the parameters "-datadir=C:\<PathToAnyDataDir> -testnet=1" and try starting again.

(Ensure that the path is existing, Dash will not create it)

yep that works. in fact adding *any* of those options results in the app working. eg
dash-qt -datadir=<foo> -testnet=1
dash-qt -testnet=1
dash-qt -datadir=<foo>
but without any args, error as before

Thanks for reporting, i guess it may be a file/folder permission issue then. I'll keep it in the backlog for testing :)

Have fun on testnet.

The last 2 days i've been getting 'no block source available' on the 12.1 build (run with -testnet)
Thought it might be related to the fact dash.org/forums was down the past 24hrs but now its up again and still getting this error (see image)

I just upgraded my MNs and my wallet with the funds. My MNs were offline or else on the wrong block, so they had to be reindexed. After finishing downloading the blockchain, I issued masternode debug and both of them said the MN had started successfully, which of course they shouldn't have/couldn't have. They're not on the list either. Why would they state that they've started?

If you want to download my debug log, above is my husband's website and the download is safe as far as I can tell (I don't think the site is infected ;P)

Yeah... the commandline tools are... not the best. And they really need to have a better separation of duties, etc. I often have a "success" only to find that it really isn't.

The tools really need a re-architecture. IMHO

v0.12.1.0-30da3f5

I just tried some mixing between some of my wallets and i came across a lot of session timed out messages and the mixing was not really progressing much.
All my wallets had a re-index because i ran into some sync problems before, they all match blocks now with blockchain explorer https://test.explorer.dash.org/chain/tDash

FYI

I may have forgotten how to use grep ?? Anyway, my MN have been started - automatically (I've been getting payments) and I'm sure they were defunct for many hours before I upgraded to the latest version. Is this a new feature? To automatically start the MN without the wallet that contains the 1000 coins online?

We consider this to be a bug :)

Dedicated tMN updated to v0.12.1.0-8fc8e6c and synced nmarley sentinel. Looking pretty healthy so far. Should have time to do some proper testing tomorrow. Hopefully most of the tMNs will be running the latest code by then. :)

We had our internet go out last night for I don't know how long, and today, my windowz wallet is still not synced up. Shouldn't the wallet notice it's offline and reconnect when it can, then download the latest blocks?

* Mixing is still not working optimal, still a lot of "privatesend request incomplete session timed out" messages that effects the speed of Privatesend mixing and in some cases even blocks mixing.
* Amount getting exceeded during mixing will still need to be looked into and fixed, please keep that in your backhead.
* Two of my wallets actually got stuck during syncing while starting up (it wont sync from blocknumber 120287 any further for example), i needed to do a re-index on both wallets to fix this


Wallet seem to think it is synced already, no message of out of sync.

* a large part of the Testnet (50% !!) is still not updated it seems, is that deliberate for testing purposes or do a lot of test masternodes still need to update ?

I never could get Sentinel to pass the database tests. After 18 fresh-OS attempts I gave up. The instructions must not be accurate.

I'd be running a bank of tMNs, but it just doesn't work.

Just want to report that I'm experiencing very slow mixing also :)

@camosoul, I set mine up exactly per instructions, not the way I usually have my MN set up. Including downloading to .dashcore etc... Also, if you're starting from a fresh OS install, you probably need the libraries for bitcoin and any others Dash uses. I haven't done it from scratch in such a long time that I can't remember all of them???

Forgive me if that's obvious, I'm just trying to help :) Oh wait, these are pre-compiled... Um, I dunno :/

Hey guys! @hunterlester and I have been working on a Budget Proposal generator and we could use your help and feedback. Have a look at http://govobject-proposal.slayer.work, this site is designed to walk you through the process of creating and submitting a budget proposal.

Questions:

1. Are the Proposal details clear (especially payment dates and amounts)?
2. Are there any suggested changes in verbiage / language?
3. Generally speaking, is the process clear?
4. Any other ideas or feedback?

Thanks for your help :)

To view proposals after they've been submitted see https://dev-test.dash.org/insight-api-dash/gobject/list

I would suggest changing the "First Payment" box from dated to "current voting cycle" "upcoming voting cycle" or something along those lines; I found the dates confusing, or you could make it so that it displays the block number for the upcoming budget cycle. Either way, I'm guessing not a lot of people plan budget proposals more than a couple of months in advance?

Also I would suggest taking number of "payments" all the way up to 100, you stopped at 97 for some reason, if I recall the spec correctly 100 is the limit?

Awesome job, looks very clean and professional :).

Pablo.

Snogcel, that's pretty slick! I put in a proposal for Chocolate Cake, so when my 6 confirmations are ready, I'll post my voting information :D

Seriously, though, isn't this the version of Dash that is supposed to have a bunch of new parameters to make more complex contracts? Or is that for another time? I've only been trying to mix and run MNs to help out here, so I have no idea what is happening under the hood really :p
