What is GameCredits?
A new and exciting Open Source Gaming currency that will revolutionize in-game purchases and bring developers a monetization based on fair-play rules.
GameCredits is a lite version of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.

Seriously, we really do. It doesn't matter whether you're fixing a typo or overhauling a major area of the code base. You will be showered in
GameCredits is released under the terms of the MIT license. See
COPYING for more
information or see http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.
Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.
If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the GameCredits development team members simply pulls it.
If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion (if they haven't already) on the mailing list.
The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing.
Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't
match the project's coding conventions (see

Compiling the GameCredits daemon from source on Debian
The process for compiling the GameCredits daemon, gamecreditsd, from the source code is pretty simple. This guide is based on the latest stable version of Debian Linux, though it should not need many modifications for any distro forked from Debian, such as Ubuntu and Xubuntu.
Update and install dependencies
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade apt-get install ntp git build-essential libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libqrencode-dev autoconf automake pkg-config unzip wget http://miniupnp.free.fr/files/download.php?file=miniupnpc-1.8.tar.gz && tar -zxf download.php\?file\=miniupnpc-1.8.tar.gz && cd miniupnpc-1.8/ make && make install && cd .. && rm -rf miniupnpc-1.8 download.php\?file\=miniupnpc-1.8.tar.gz
Note: Debian testing and unstable require libboost1.54-all-dev.
Compile the daemon
git clone https://github.com/gamecredits-project/GameCredits
Compile gamecreditsd with own Berkeley DB
cd GameCredits ./autogen.sh ./configure make cd src strip gamecreditsd
Compile gamecreditsd with Berkeley DB 4.8 Recommended
cd GameCredits ./autogen.sh ./bdb48.sh make cd src strip gamecreditsd
Add a user and move gamecreditsd
adduser gamecredits && usermod -g users gamecredits && delgroup gamecredits && chmod 0701 /home/gamecredits mkdir /home/gamecredits/bin cp ~/GameCredits/src/gamecreditsd /home/gamecredits/bin/gamecreditsd chown -R gamecredits:users /home/gamecredits/bin cd && rm -rf GameCredits
Run the daemon
su gamecredits cd && bin/gamecreditsd
On the first run, gamecreditsd will return an error and tell you to make a configuration file, named gamecredits.conf, in order to add a username and password to the file.
nano ~/.gamecredits/gamecredits.conf && chmod 0600 ~/.gamecredits/gamecredits.conf
Add the following to your config file, changing the username and password to something secure:
daemon=1 rpcuser=<username> rpcpassword=<secure password> server=1 listen=1 txindex=1 #txindex will record every transaction from the blockchain to your offline db #it's an optional thing. It takes a lot longerr to sync that way 0 if you don't care rpcport=40001 port=40002 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 addnode=184.108.40.206 addnode=220.127.116.11:40002 addnode=18.104.22.168:40002 addnode=22.214.171.124:40002 addnode=126.96.36.199:3215 addnode=188.8.131.52:32088 addnode=184.108.40.206:40002 addnode=220.127.116.11:39207 addnode=18.104.22.168:40002 addnode=22.214.171.124:24935 addnode=126.96.36.199:42230 addnode=188.8.131.52:40002 addnode=184.108.40.206:34277 addnode=220.127.116.11:40002 addnode=18.104.22.168:40002 addnode=22.214.171.124:58809 addnode=126.96.36.199:33324 addnode=188.8.131.52:64504 addnode=184.108.40.206:30023 addnode=220.127.116.11:32975 addnode=18.104.22.168:49931 addnode=22.214.171.124:53825 addnode=126.96.36.199:52418 addnode=188.8.131.52:55566 addnode=184.108.40.206:50126
You can just copy the username and password provided by the error message when you first ran gamecreditsd.
Run gamecreditsd once more to start the daemon!
Optional Download GameCredits bootstrap
cd /home/gamecredits/.gamecredits/ wget http://220.127.116.11/bootstrap.zip unzip bootstrap.zip
The above command will list all available functions of the GameCredits daemon. To safely stop the daemon, execute GameCreditsd stop.
Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.
