this is a solo mining tutorial tested on Windows Xp, 32 bit.
You will need also an ASIC USB Block Erupter or other ASIC device(s) supported by cgminer or bfgminer.
If you are unsure if you have Java, go here and follow the instructions to check: https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
To install Java, go here and click on the Download button: https://www.java.com/en/download/windows_xpi.jsp?locale=en
download the Windows Wallet binaries from here
if on windows your username is "username", you can download and save the archive in "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads"
you can uncompress the archive in a directory named "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\medcoin-win32-v0.8.5.2"
click on start button, then choose "run", type "cmd" and press enter; a (usually black) windows open, click on it and go in the wallet directory with the command:
cd "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\medcoin-win32-v0.8.5.2"
in the same msdos prompt, type the command:
if this is the first time you execute mediterraneancoin-qt.exe, you will get a long error message and the walle will stop; after that, you need to create a configuration file with username and password:
create and edit the following file "c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\mediterraneancoin\mediterraneancoin.conf" (you can use notepad or any other text editor) containing:
server=1 rpcuser=mediterraneancoinrpc rpcpassword=choose a long and casual string of characters!! addnode=node1.mediterraneancoin.org addnode=node2.mediterraneancoin.org addnode=node3.mediterraneancoin.org addnode=node4.mediterraneancoin.org
Save the file but keep it open (you will need rpcuse and rpcpassword values later).
now you can simply double click on the wallet icon; or using the same msdos prompt, type the command:
now you will see the wallet running and syncing the blockchain;
you have to wait for the synchronization to finish before you can solo mine.
in the same msdos prompt (staying in the same "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\medcoin-win32-v0.8.5.2" directory), now type the command:
java -jar mcproxy.jar
If mcproxy has started correctly, you should see a message like this:
MediterraneanCoin Proxy parameters: wallet hostname: localhost wallet port: 9372 bind to local address: local proxy port: 8080
leave the window there, do not close it. You will need mcproxy always running during the mining.
you can uncompress the archive in a directory named "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\win32-cgminer-mediterraneancoin" if you are using the modified cgminer,
or "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\win32-bfgminer" if you are using the modified bfgminer.
Or choose whatever name for the directory, no problem.
cd "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\win32-cgminer-mediterraneancoin\build-win32"
or (depending on which miner you want to use):
cd "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Documents\Downloads\win32-bfgminer"
you will need to have at hand the values you choose for rpcuser and rpcpassword stored in mediterrancoin.conf (the configuration file).
Also, if it is the first time you use your ASICs devices on the pc, you probably will need to download and install some additional software drivers, this is an aspect independent of MediterraneanCoin.
You need the right software drivers for mining any coin.
For example, to download the Windows drivers for USB Block Erupters, you can go here: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx
If using cgminer, type the following command:
cgminer -o http://localhost:8080 -u mediterraneancoinrpc -p same_password_in_mediterraneancoin.conf_file -D -T
(the -D option provides a lot of debug information; it can be useful to provide to the forum for help/debug)
if using bfgminer, the command would be:
bfgminer --submit-stale -o http://localhost:8080 -u mediterraneancoinrpc -p same_password_of_mediterraneancoin.conf_file -Q 0 -S all -T --verbose
if everything works, after a while you should see something like this:
