Unable to use any Invictus apps. Can someone help?
« on: February 06, 2014, 02:42:49 PM »

I posted my original question here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2735.0 and followed the instructions here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1936.0 but my ProtoShares-Qt-0.2.0 for Mac OS X app will not connect to any nodes. My firewall is off and I am able use other Qt clients just fine.

What app should I use to get a ProtoShares wallet that works? Is ProtoShares even a thing anymore or is it AngelShares now? Or BitShares? Or BitShares X? What's with this naming scheme? Who is doing the marketing for Invictus? I fix Macs for a living and I can hardly figure out how any of these products relate to each other.

In an attempt to see if I could get any Invictus app to work for me I have visited the Invictus site and GitHub but have been unable to find an installer or .dmg file for any Invictus app that "just works". Are there no Invictus apps that just function out-of-the-box after a simple download and drag and drop into the Applications folder on my Mac? Do all Invictus products require the user to compile the software themselves? If this is the case can a forum moderator or Invictus employee provide with a link to a working version of ANY Invictus app that will function on a Mac?

Perhaps it is just easier to just purchase some ProtoShares with Bitcoin on Cryptsy and forget trying to use any of Invictus' software. Of course that is problematic too because I still need to get my PTS off Cryptsy at some point. As I asked before, is ProtoShares even the right thing? Or should I buy BitShares?

Halp!

Try to add some nodes: for example, go to debug window, type   addnode cryptoseed.cloudapp.net:80 add


There is a FAQ for PTS BTS AGS, just take a look

I already tried adding nodes manually. That was the instruction I was given last time, the instructions I linked to in the first sentence of my post above.

I just followed your link to https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1964.0 and makes the difference between the 3 share types a little more clear but I am still unable to get any of them or to use Keyhotee.

The link on that forum post to download a Mac app (http://invictus-innovations.com/downloads/) is now defunct.

Can you provide me with a link to a working version of any Invictus software for Mac?

Sorry that it didn't work, Mac version software was indeed more buggy. I couldn't tell you more other than trying as many nodes as possible. Maybe delete all the blockchains before you sync the wallet?

Invictus website is down, there is a new website which is specific for PTS

http://protoshares.net   you can download all the wallets there
