New wallet is synching finally, but mining options are removed. Are people to assume that the mining is built in now and automatic?? If so, why take away the 1, 2, or 3 thread option from people? Please explain. We would like the file for version 1 of the wallet so we can compare all three versions for the sake of transparency. Thank you.

Mr. Bytemaster, wallet finally synching with new/version 3 wallet, but mining options removed. Are people to assume that this is built in and happening automatically? If so, why take away the 1, 2, or 3 thread option from people? Please explain. We are concerned about your version 2 wallet and would like to compare the different versions of the wallets to better understand what happened.

We removed solo mining because it could take over a month to find anything.

forestearth, where was the wallet.dat file located? I cannot find it on my pc. I've followed every step typing in tens of seed ip adresses to removing my old wallet and installing the new one provided.

I have uploaded a new wallet with more seed nodes built in: http://the-iland.net/static/downloads/windows-protoshares-0.3.0.zip
Unless I'm missing something, the files in that archive have the same sizes and modification dates as the files in protoshares-0.2.0.zip. Maybe you made a mistake?

Mr. Bytemaster, if you really wanted to help people why didn't you tell them that the new wallet will not work if they do not search for and delete the current wallet.dat file? We have a programmer on staff otherwise no way I would have known that --causing more delays delays delays. It does not go away even if you uninstall the original software and will prevent new wallet from opening.
If we delete the current wallet.dat file, won't we lose all of the protoshares that were in it?

You should use mining pools.

We tested last couple of nights. The correction I was giving to fix this problem failed after a pathetic few minutes of having 1 active connection.  That was officially strike two. We look at the complaints by other users and decide if they merit a start at strike one and they did. You were warned very clearly that this is a serious matter and you are being given a random consumer inspection. We see other people still having the same problem. Last chance to save Protoshares/Bitshares reputation. How do people clearly fix this problem at connect? The pattern here is that you insider group is mining while others are delayed after your claims of being fair to enrich yourselves.... We will try to stop that.

There are many threads on this forum.  The problem with connection is something we are looking into as our own friends and family have experienced it.    We have a seed node hard coded into every client that should support 2000 connections and is currently reporting just 355 connections.  Clearly our seed node is not overloaded.  We did not modify the Bitcoin-Qt networking code.   It seems like if you follow the instructions and add some nodes posted in the forum you can connect.

Don't delete your wallet.dat

There is no insider group, learn about the pools that have been in operation since the first week.

Let me clarify how I managed to set up my wallet for all the new people like me who couldn't synch to the network. It will only work if your proto wallet is entirely empty. I installed the protoshare wallet given on the home page. Then I went to C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\ProtoShares and deleted my wallet.dat file. Then I installed the new wallet provided in this thread by bytemaster. After you download the new wallet, it will give you a new wallet.dat. Open your protoshares wallet, and type these into the command console one at a time
addnode 168.63.12.227:80 add
addnode 168.63.12.227:80 onetry
addnode 94.23.215.174 add
addnode 94.23.215.174 onetry
viola, I am now synchronized.

I would backup the wallet.dat file rather than delete it.  Just rename it. 

Bitcoin qt is far more buggy than seems reasonable.   We will look into better solutions.

It's because there are too many people that have incoming connections disabled or firewalled

use 5.9.24.81, it has 300 openings

also, re: 2000 connections, the source doesn't use epoll, so if you got to over 1000 connections I assume your client would crash
