Chukwa’s Labyrinth

Hey! So I’ve been working on my first game for the past few weeks. I think I mentioned it last week in the roundup. It’s finally ready to play! In the game, you have to go through a series of mazes in order to reach the treasure at the end. So far there are only two levels, but there are instructions and plenty of stuff in them! Play it and let me know how it is, ping me in #dev_gaming with any comments or advice! You can download it from the link given below

Daemon+WalletBackend timestamp adjustments
The current /getwalletsyncdata rounds a timestamp to midnight. Depending on what time of the day you start a fresh wallet, you may have no blocks to grab (we need to roll back a bit more than we currently do with the timestamp adjustment), or too many (since it’s rounding to midnight which is quite far away).
https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin/issues/704

Remove no longer relevant asserts
Since pretty much everyone runs the daemon in release mode, instead of debug mode, we’ve ended up where we have a number of asserts which constantly trigger, due to altered/moved/rewritten sections of code.

Chukwa’s Labyrinth

Chukwa’s Labyrinth

I started making a new TurtleCoin-themed game, “Chukwa’s Labyrinth”! You’ll have to go through a series of mazes in order to reach the prize at the end! So far I’ve gotten player movement, a turtlecoin powerup and basic levels designed. I’m currently working on refining my tilesets and how I approach tilemaps. I’m using Godot Engine – a free, cross-platform, open source engine. It’s extremely powerful, 2D and 3D, and is licensed under the MIT license(!). No royalties, no strings attached.

My game will be released under the GPLv3 license, you can check out the code at the GitHub repo. Big shoutout to @oiboo for making all my art for me, you rock. Also kenney.nl for his amazing artpacks! And also thanks to @GT3000, for helping me get started and giving a great starter resource

Proton Wallet – A TurtleCoin Wallet

Proton Wallet – A TurtleCoin Wallet

Hey everybody, as some of you may have heard, I’m developing a GUI wallet using the new and very capable wallet backend. The new backend was written by everyone’s favorite developer, the handsome @zpalmtree. It’s a really huge improvement over the old turtle-service based wallet applications as the wallet interaction is all done in pure javascript with no need for laggy RPC connections or mucking about running other processes, which leads to less lagginess and overall a better user experience.
Down the road I’m planning on implementing some more advanced multi-address wallet features, and I’d also like to see it become a full-fledged multi currency wallet. I think many users are tired of having so many different wallets installed on their computer: a really nice multi-currency wallet could really attract a lot of users.
Please test out the beta version which should be released in a few hours at https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-wallet-proton/releases and get back to me with your feedback.

Bounties

Bounties are a great way to earn TRTL for doing small tasks, and also a good way of getting things done if you want something made and have some TRTL to spend.

  • 20,000 TRTL Get TonChan (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tonchan) added to the TurtleCoin website, by making a PR to https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin.lol/ and having it merged. It should fit in with the rest of the website, so there should be an ‘Android’ entry added to the existing Apple, Windows, and Linux options.

This Week In TurtleCoin (FEB 10, 2019)

In this better late than never edition of the weekend roundup, we test our skills of survival while waiting for the Comcast guy!

Developer Updates

TurtleCoin + Alpine + Docker – I’ve managed to get the TurtleCoin binaries to compile on Alpine. There were a couple of issues that were preventing this. The first issue is that ucontext was deprecated in POSIX which musl adheres to. Thankfully someone had created a library that solves the problem. The second issue was that musl has a PAGE_SIZE macro defined in limits.h that was conflicting with a parameter used on slow-hash.c. This has now been changed to page_size in the core, resolving the conflict. So far, I’ve created three images. The first image, which is meant to be a starting point for your own images, builds all the binaries in Alpine then copies them to a scratch container resulting in an image size of 22.6MB. The zedwallet container comes in at 7.96MB and the TurtleCoind image, which includes checkpoints, is only 90MB. I plan to create a series of docker-compose files that will tie them together to help accomplish various tasks. You can view the images on Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/andrewnk/turtlecoin or on github: https://github.com/andrewnk/turtlecoin-docker – andrew | trtl.rocks

Turtle Simulator UE4 – Turtle Simulator has now been uploaded to GitHub! If you want to help with the project, or if you if you are interested in game design, check out the code and give me a message in #Dev_gaming channel! Im looking for anyone who knows: 3d Modeling/ Animation/ UV maps. Coding in UE4, Blueprints or C++ Music /Audio Ideas / Level design It’s a massive project I’ve undertaken so any help takes something off my to-do list. Thanks in advanced! Looking forward to see what we can make together! Oiboo P.s No minimum skill level, all help will be appreciated! – Oiboo

https://github.com/Oiboo/TRTL-Simulator

TRTL.rocks – I’ve made several improvements and changes to the website. I made a silly logic error that caused the initial load time to vary drastically or stall altogether. If the node or pool API is not accessible, then it won’t be shown on the site. If you don’t see your node or pool in the list, this is most likely the reason. I’ve cleaned up the line chart, including formatting y-axis and point labels, which should help readability. I’ve added tooltips to most table headers that describe what the column represents. These can be turned on or off by toggling the Tooltips switch on the bottom right hand of the screen. Finally, I’ve added the ability to switch the line chart between live and historical data. On initial load, the live mode will be enabled and updates are displayed whenever the data is pushed from the database. I’m in the process of rewriting iburn’s blockexplorer-cache library to use sequelize, which will help me move on to the block explorer portion of the site. – andrewnk | trtl.rocks

This Christmas in TurtleCoin 2018

This Christmas we received the blessing of the community’s progress and our mutual friendship with other networks. TurtleCoin users are quickly becoming the most helpful crew in the industry, and that’s a hat we are happy to wear any time 😀

Here’s to another great year, and a good time this New Year for all of our new friends who’ve just joined us!

Developer Updates

Core Update at block 1,200,000 !! Miners! Service Operators! Users! This is your update! Tell a friend!

What is a fork? -> Click here to see our article about updates like these and what they mean for you!

1,200,000 – This update is a big one, and unlike our normal fork upgrade schedule, this one packs a little bit more of a punch than others in the sense that we have a new hashing algo variant we’ve been working on called CN Turtle. This new algo affects miners two different ways, GPU miners will see about a 4x increase in power, and CPU miners will see about a 6x increase in power. This just means more heat for most of you but for us it means another upgrade without ASIC, and for the first time it means TurtleCoin is branching out from just using whatever Monero and Aeon use. We’re doubling down on our commitment against Nicehash and ASIC, and have already started research on the next PoW change for when that time comes. Everyone probably also wondering, but if you’re on XMR Stak or XMRig, you’re fine, with more compatibility for others coming soon. – TRTL Core Team

This wall of text means one thing- We’ve got you covered. This is our commitment to a 2019 without ASIC.

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin

solo miner improvements – If you’ve ever used the solo miner, you might know it’s a little ‘meh’. You need to know all the arguments to start the miner with, it doesn’t even output barely anything on the default log level, and the output is pretty verbose. One thing you might not be aware of is it actually by default only scans for a new block template every 30 seconds. So, a lot of the time you might be mining on an old block template when the daemon already has a newer template. This fixes that issue, so there should be a lot less orphans. Annoyingly, the windows network stack seems to hold open the closed connections for some time, so polling for a new template every second can end up exhausting the available sockets. I’m working on a fix for this by reusing the same connection. I know most people don’t use the solo miner, but this should help out projects which fork TurtleCoin and don’t have any pools up yet. – zpalm

Forking our coin from TurtleCoin and using their new CN-TURTLE hashing algorithm will be instrumental in helping us to achieve this goal.
Some specs of DeroGold include 100 trillion max supply, only 2 decimals, 10 second blocks, cutting-edge lite-blocks, and a wallet prefix of dg. It has been said to be very reminiscent of the early TurtleCoin days, since we have a low nethash and large block rewards with a lot of questions about our huuuuge supply.

TurtleCoin Test Suite – It takes a lot of effort to test all of the RPC calls to TurtleCoind and turtle-service each release. As anyone can tell you, give a lazy man a task and he’ll find an easy way to do it. Given this bit of wisdom, check out turtlecoin-test-suite written in Node.js for quick and simple RPC testing for those of us that want to spend more time coding and less time testing. – IBurnMyCD

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin-test-suite

TRTL-CLI-py – I added a pools function! Use po or pools and get a full list of all the pools. Use po <name> and you’ll get detailed statistics of that pool! If you havent heard yet, there’s also a nodes ( or no) function! – Sajo8

https://github.com/turtlecoin/trtl-cli-py

Turtle Simulator – Version 0.2 is out now! Just a small update for you all! Various reported bugs have been fixed and a few new features added! The main addition is the Day and Night system so now we can add custom events on different days! Enjoy and as always email me at “trtl.simulator@gmail.com” or drop into the TRTL discord if you have any queries or ideas for the project! Thanks for all your support! – Oiboo

0.25 node fee @ turtlenode.co – managed by greywolf³˜ – thanks for connecting

Fork Watch!

This is a new article segment we are doing to promote those who’ve forked TurtleCoin to make their own projects. Hopefully this gives new forks a good foot forward! Feel free to post your fork for next week’s roundup here, or create your own fork with our easy guide here

Name of your TRTL fork – Xaria
Github link for your code – https://github.com/xaria-coin/
What is special or new about your network? –

Name of your TRTL fork – Monkeytips
Github link for your code – https://github.com/monkeytips/monkeytips
What is special or new about your network? 
Monkeytips has been around for 4 months now and has steadily increased its followers since conception. Very humble beginnings as just a joke of a coin, monkeytips has become something the community has really rallied behind. Only 250 million max supply, monkeytips is a hot new cryptocoin with a very low total of atomic units having only 2 decimals. We wanted to share the monkeytips love with everyone so recently SoreGums helped code a rainmonkey to rain monkeytips on people in our discord chat! Join up for some fun 🙂 discord.gg/EAaKcCy

 

Name of your TRTL fork – FRED
Github link for your code  – https://github.com/fredenrg/FRED
What is special or new about your network? 
An increasing population and the industrialization of emerging economies will have a huge impact on future global energy demands and the environment. The FRED Project is aimed at promoting the benefits of alternative energy generation at the consumer level. We believe this will help to reduce the associated environmental impacts of fossil fuel energy generation, and the effects of energy price increases on the consumer due to demand. In addition to promoting consumer energy generation, we are also exploring the possibilities of future alternative and free energy devices. The term “free energy” may sound impossible and some readers may have already run for the hills, but we believe there are devices out there (although not totally free) that have the potential to become mainstream. Why fork TurtleCoin? The reason for choosing TurtleCoin as our base fork was due to the incredible collaboration between the developers and the community. We believe TurtleCoin will be one of the most well developed and feature rich cryptonote coins. We are also looking for contributors of all levels, in all areas of development and promotion. http://fredenergy.org
