Offspring: Problem with loading NXT blockchain
« on: September 08, 2014, 09:40:44 am »

Since 18 Aug 2014, I can no longer start Offspring 0.4.6 on Windows.

I cannot longer load my NXT blockichain with Offspring.

During scanning the block chain of 17 Aug 14, it says:

A fatal error occurred initializing NXT.
If this keeps occuring consider to delete NXT database folder.

Error:null

Do you want to delete the blockchain now?


YES         NO


But the suggested solution to delete the database does not help!
In either case (YES and NO), the Offspring client terminates.

Help, I have no access to my NXT anymore!

Alternatively, should it not be possible anymore to load the latest blockchain with Offspring, how can I open Offspring without loading the blockchain (at least not past 17 Aug 2014)?

Then, I can copy the passphrase and get access to my NXT again with a different NXT client using the copied passphrase.

AFAIK Offspring is currently not up-to-date and you have to wait until a new version is released.

In the meantime I would simply use the official NXT client if you already have a Nxt account and passphrase.
Currently version 1.2.8 downloadable from here: https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads/nxt-client-1.2.8.zip

Wesleyh also created some installers for Mac and Win (I believe they do auto-updating), link: https://bitbucket.org/wesleyh

And finally if you are on Windows, you can always give NxtLoader V2 a try (it will do the download, hash check and install, see my sig)  ;)

I had also thought to circumvent the problem by using the passphrase and use a different client. However, the passphrase I noted does not result in my existing account being taken, a new account is instead being created. Therefore, I cannot access my NXT at the moment.

Okay, so you only know your Offspring wallet password, but not the "private key" (using Offspring terminology) which is the actual passphrase for the account.
Correct?
And if so, then I'm sorry I cannot help because I don't use it and therefore don't have any experience with it.

Just saw, that you already posted on nextcoin.org which is probably a good idea to reach some Offspring experienced users.

Solution is here https://nextcoin.org/index.php/topic,4525.msg45791.html#msg45791. No keys were lost, keys can still be found in the offspring wallet. If you run into a modal error dialogs just delete your blockchain first (nxt_db folder from the top of my head) then you have plenty of time to access your wallet and get your private keys out.
