    DOWNGRADE TEST - 0.11.2.23

    whats the current block ? and is there a block explorer up to date ?
    also my 6 wallets all ended up on different block heights after -reindex so there could be some forks.

    edit : after a second -reindex they all synced to same block (which is the correct one i suppose), currently block 77410

    Great! I'm happy that we are close to release! Happy to help.

    Wow, after syncing with V12, it feels like V11 is taking a lifetime, but it's still faster than BTC!

    Yer I was thinking same thing, but because testnet transactions are small and not many nodes, we won't know the extent of your namesake until mainnet ;)

    So we need to remove 12
    go back to 11
    and then install 12 to see if it takes as it should?? in any upgrade?

    Very clear. Downgrade. Wait for 12.0.35, update and test a hard fork. Then roll out on mainnet.

    Haha, going back to v0.11.2.23 with a few wallets makes you appreciate the "Wallet title" feature crowning gave us a little while back.

    Edit: and the Wallet repair options!

    Ok, so I've dialed back to v11.23 but I won't be able to do anything else today, I'm going out. I hope we don't switch back to v12 until tomorrow, to give the network time to settle into the old ways anyway?

    eduffield I haven't been able to sync since yesterday on my two linux server nodes. Yesterday, I was trying the latest build, today, I was trying the 11.23 build. Same problem. I get this in debug log:
    2015-08-01 19:32:53 Failed to create backup boost::filesystem::copy_file: File exists: "/home/ingie/.dash/testnet3/wallet.dat", "/home/ingie/.dash/testnet3/backups/wallet.dat.2015-08-01-19.32"

    eduffield - I feel the budget system hasn't got tested thoroughly yet, or very close to being tested thoroughly. After the hard fork on Testnet, could we test it one more time to make sure please before releasing to Mainnet? Thank you.

    Might I also suggest starting the first budget cycle a month or so after the rollout. It's a big release, so inevitably some problems will crop up when the whole network updates, and many people will be busy troubleshooting for a while. They won't have much time to wrap their heads around the bugdget system & proposals on top of that

    Sounds like you're out of space. Try "df -h"

    I've tested the budget system thoroughly (for months now and rewrote it twice!), however I was going to continue doing testing on Sunday - Tuesday to look for edge cases / exploits. Feel free to join me, if we find anything substantial we can push it back. We're in no hurry

    Rollout is planned to be staggered:

    8/5 - Turn off enforcement / network upgrade
    8/7-12 - Turn on enforcement
    8/24 - Hard fork to allow for super blocks
    9/6 - The very first budget block will be 332320, so that's quite a ways off (about 36 days from today)

    So... what will happen on Mainnet if masternodes don't update to v12 this time?

    I started two of my MN wallets a while ago, running v0.12.0.34-44c9941 (scratchy already downgraded his server to v.11.2.23), and I'm watching "Number of Masternodes" on the info screen... It went from: "Total 52 (DS compatible: 6 / Enabled: 52)" to "Total 23 (DS compatible: 3 / Enabled: 8)" right now. And both wallets are still getting paid...

    I guess my wallets will be forked off the net soon?

    EDIT: I'm also trying to start another wallet (with same v12) but the orange screen hangs at "Loading wallet..."

    EDIT: But actually with bitcoin 10, we can't downgrade on Mainnet, right?

    EDIT: Ok, downgrading to v.11.2.23.. lol

    dashd --help :rolleyes:
    Code:
    Maintain a full transaction index, used by the getrawtransaction rpc call
    So basically it collects data about all txes and stores additional tx index next to block index (which is stored always)

    So.. what does it do for v.11? We add this in the dash.conf file to make sure it retrieves all txes in the blockchain before v12 and to be able to withdraw coins from the faucets if the faucets have been running since v11? Sorry about my n00b questions and i hope you're not too sleepy.. lol

    That's ok, no n00b questions here :)
    Looks like it should help us to avoid some issues in v12 and could also help a lot in general

    I am using the latest version with an encrypted wallet.
    First tried importing a private key, It did not. Then tried to dump the private key, that didn't work either. Where did I go wrong?

    OMG you shouldn't show your privkey on a forum like that ... but is it really a privkey?

    It is not a real priv key. Thanks to me changing a few. Does it need to be real to be helped?

    walletpassphrase somepasshere 999
    where 999 is how many seconds to keep wallet unlocked waiting for next command
    dumpprivkey

    EDIT: btw, are you using v12 or v11?
