Hi. I know how to delete the old peers.dat file, but how do i replace it with the new peers.dat?
tx
After you delete the peers.dat file, you download the new one from here, http://drk.poolhash.org/files/peers.dat - (when you download it make sure you know where you can find it, like your desktop or whatever). Find the new file you just downloaded, it should be called peers.dat, drag and drop the file into the folder that was holding your original peers.dat.

Been trying to get my wallet to sync for two weeks. like you, all of my other wallets work without a problem. Developers really need to do something about this.

Windows wallet won't sync. AGAIN!

I had "no block source" which I fixed after manually populating peers.dat and creating a config file as suggested in the other thread.

It synced up.

Few days later I get "No block source" again.
And now I get "Syncronizing with network, 4 days behind" forever. I have 4 - 8 active connections at all times, but no synchronizing ever takes place, even after running wallet for more than 24 hours.

Wallet version is 9.3.3 beta.

add nodes from here to make sure you connect to the correct chain. and then start syncing again.

Wallet has been sycning with network last block received 17 hours ago stuck on 74603. I downloaded the newest version 9.4.6. I should point out I am using a mac and my wallet is encrypted. I attempted reindex by inserting /Applications/DarkCoin-Qt2.app/Contents/MacOs/Darkcoin-Qt2 -reindex into terminal, but it says no such file found.
Please help thank you

Hi,

My wallet was working fine 2 days ago, fully updated and it is the latest DK client .946. Then bought some DK's, which I assume have been "sent" to my wallet. Since my wallet is stuck "updating" I cannot see if they were delivered.

I hate to make any changes to my wallet files, like re-installing because my receive address might be different and my coins lost forever.

I have been reading the forms:

If I save wallet.dat and re-install, will my old receive address still be valid?

How about removing/ replacing peers.dat?

HELP!

The new peers.dat should come with the new wallet when you download it, there is no reason to download a separate peers.dat file for the hard fork that happened yesterday, (from my understanding anyways.). go to darkcoin.io - go to 'get the wallet' and download the wallet you will need for the OS you run.

Don't forget to back up your wallet before you download the new one, put the backup on a thumb drive.

Something surely is screwed up. I'm running two instances, one seems normal and is at 75113, but running another one it seems to want to download a shorter chain and at the moment is stalling out at a point ten weeks ago. Sure would like to hear from the technical leadership on this.

I think I'm having a totally unique problem with my wallet - I've searched all over the forums, reddit, etc and haven't seen anyone else post about it...

My wallet was up to date, syncing and working just fine, however since the fork my wallet has not been opening up properly - the qt will run, however the interface showing my balance of coins won't appear. I can access the degub window and the options, however I cannot send or receive.

I've backed up my wallet.dat file, and I've tried all the reloads that people have suggested here, but nothing is working.

I'm shitting bricks right now!!
