    Simple Games

    Single or 2-player games aren't as conducive to blockchain gaming as multiplayer games are. Blockchain gaming is more suited for social games, MMOs, MMORPGs, games where you want to eliminate any possibility of cheating/fraud, games where they must be provably fair, where transparency is important, etc. There are ways to have single player or 2-player games done, but they need to have a reason to be on the blockchain. For example, a single player chess game really doesn't need to be on the blockchain. What's the point? You just pay fees for transactions for what reason? However, if you created "Definitive Chess" where people played against each other and proper chess rankings were tracked (such as with the Elo rating system), you'd have a solid record of games and rankings. The question then is whether or not that would be appealing to chess players. The advantage is that nothing can be faked and that scores are tracked with consensus and guaranteed by the blockchain. Not everything needs to be (or should be) on a blockchain. There needs to be a reason. For something like Tic-Tac-Toe, it could make a good tutorial program to show how to record moves and pick a winner. But, it would be best done on testnet and not mainnet as it would really serve no purpose other than to bloat the main chain. None of this is to say that there's no place for single or 2-player games on the blockchain. It's merely to say that they need a reason. Coming up with that reason could be very profitable for some entrepreneurial game developer. Good ideas are out there!
  2. We'll have more help materials out in the near future.
  3. It's a good design as it helps keep your coins safe.
  4. Yes, before you do any transactions in your vault wallet, you need to unlock it. Make sure that you've backed up your password and your wallets.
  5. You want to choose /p as that's for names. See this screenshot: /g is for game names. If you're designing a game, you should choose as short of a name as possible that still makes sense. For your /p name, remember that tx fees are by size, so you should keep your names relatively short. You can certainly have longer names, but if you use it in a game a lot, your fees will rack up higher over time. (The fees are super low, so this is likely not a serious consideration for most people.)

    Were the blocks just not matured yet? It takes a number of blocks before they're available. I forget the number at the moment. Also, did you check whether you were looking at your vault or game wallet? There are 2 wallets in the XAYA Electron wallet.
  7. Chimaera changes to XAYA, Mainnet LIVE! EDIT 2018-07-15: TITLE CHANGED TO REFLECT THAT MAINNET IS NOW LIVE. Chimaera Rebranding as XAYA Chimaera began as a blockchain project in 2016, but has evolved significantly. As the scope of the Chimaera project has expanded, we’re entering into new areas where there are projects and companies with similar names. With the best interests of the project at heart, we’ve decided to rebrand the project in order to avoid confusion and limit potential legal issues further down the line. Additionally, Chimaera represents a project that is cutting-edge, blazing fast, and truly a pioneer in its industry. This project is the future of gaming, and the name should read as such. With that, we are pleased to announce that Chimaera is being rebranded as Xaya. Hopefully the community will share our enthusiasm for the new name and brand. The rebranding is purely cosmetic and has no effect on any technical capabilities. Xaya is pronounced “zay-yah”. The ‘X’ is the same as the Greek letter CHI (X), and Xaya will retain CHI as its currency ticker. Xaya Mainnet to Go Live We are pleased to announce that the mainnet will go live at 3 pm UTC+2 (CEST) Friday the 13th of July. With this, game developers can begin looking into the project and brainstorm ideas on how they can take advantage of the Xaya platform and ecosystem. The reserve currency and “fuel” for the Xaya ecosystem is CHI, its native cryptocurrency. Wallets will be available for download and those wishing to mine will be able to do so. This is an important milestone for the Xaya project. Further details on the wallets, mining and more will be available shortly.
  8. Soccer Manager Ltd is developing a groundbreaking new game. Their trademarked football management game is being built directly on blockchain technology, and the results will blow your mind. EDIT: Soccer Manager Crypto has been renamed to Soccer Manager Elite Soccer Manager Crypto is a provably fair, decentralized, massively multiplayer football management game. This is the first game of its kind, and it’s nothing short of revolutionary. In a provably fair game, players are automatically protected from cheating. A single set of rules is universally enforced. There are no more hackers. Decentralized means the game runs serverless and can scale to take on any number of players and leagues. No more restrictions on how you can play and who you can play with. By combining these two elements, Soccer Manager Crypto provides a real Play-to-Earn gaming experience. Players have verifiable ownership of all their in-game assets. They can trade them for other virtual assets or sell them for real world cash. Play-to-Earn gaming will make freemium gaming as we know it obsolete. Players are no longer burdened to keep shelling out money the further they progress in a game. The opposite is true — the more they play, the bigger the earnings. Soccer Manager Crypto will work just like older versions of the game. Players have upkeep and needs that must be addressed while you expand your stadium and grow your fanbase. League matches take place twice a week, with each match being determined over the course of 60 to 90 minutes. Friendly matches and tournaments, however, can take place at any time. Players challenge opponents directly and compete for SMCs (Soccer Manager Coins). Unlike existing games, this blockchain-based approach provides gamers with a real transfer economy. In-game currency, players, stadiums, and more are fully and verifiably owned by the players for transfer, trade, or sale. For the first time ever, gamers will experience an environment where every success they achieve carries a real-world value. Are you ready? Disclaimer: The above information is tentative and details are subject to change.
  9. The "Welcome" forums are for that - to introduce yourself. The rules in the Chimaera forums are relatively simple. Play nice. See rule #1. We don't want to have to spell out in detail what that means. Just use common sense, e.g. no racism, sexism, abuse of other members, spamming, etc. First time offenders will most likely only receive a warning and have their post deleted. Repeat offenders will be banned. So, with that, play nice and tell us about yourselves!
