Wallet setup (run.bat) stuck despite trying resolution from How to's & tutorials



  • Hi, I want get started with Burstcoin but the beginning of the journey is full of different problems and issues ;p

    Firstly, I couldn't download the db due to overloaded server about which I? wrote here.
    This was resolved with an idea of creating mirrors. I downloaded the wallet package from this place and the db from http://db1.burst-team.us/

    I unzipped both archives, pasted the db into burstcoin-1.2.8\burst_db and ran run.bat file.

    After having waited for over an hour and a half I stopped believing it's heading anywhere. I think I'm kind of stuck.

    Is it a normal thing? Should I do something else? How long does one usually wait?
    The db was from June 18th


    This is how my orginal post from a few hours before looked like.
    Then I found this: https://forums.burst-team.us/topic/1857/howto-fix-a-stuck-wallet and asked admin to delete.

    Unfortunalety it did not help. I don't know the exact puropse of "popOff" but even when I put a big? numBlocks of 1400 there the only thing that happened was cpu usage rising to 100% (browser 50, java 50, then java all) for a while.

    The run.bat still look like this:

    I don't know what to think about this issue. Do I wait more or should I do something else?



  • @gamedevmike Reboot then just launch the wallet and see if you can login either online or local. You will get a message downloading blockchain and there should be a % complete on the bottom. Sometimes it takes a min or two before you see the %, once you see that it will tell you how much is left to download. A few days old DB should be about 97% complete. Try that and let me know how you get on.



  • Rebooted, launched (initialization took 884 seconds...), created wallet and can't see any downloading percentage anywhere (after 8 mins since initialization).
    Where do I look for it?

    Isn't the height growth too slow?

    As you see the fourth line from below is "Burst server 1.2.8 started successfully". Now you can go to your favorite browser and type in : http://localhost:8125 and use the wallet.



  • @gamedevmike Or is it even heading to any number? Sorry for silly questions, I'm a total newbie.



  • Oh, so this is all okay? Good, then and sorry for being such a noob.
    When I first tried to download the whole blockchain from scratch the was a number appearing every 5000 so I expected the same witch bigger numbers here. It was so misleading.

    Can I start mining and all this Burstcoin stuff now?
    Great, if so.

    @gamedevmike The screenshot shows that the wallet is running: "Burst server 1.2.8 started successfully". Do you have the windows firewall running? Either shut it down or make an exception for port 8125



  • Made an exception.
    I can enter my wallet via browser but when I try to use http://burstcoin.biz/faucet it says it's only for new users. I haven't used any faucet ever before cause I'm completely new to burst.
