How I ultimately got it to work is simply by using VirtualBox with an XP (and later a Windows 7) image, then running the installer. It works fine on both my old 32 bit Intel MacBook (Snow Leopard) and newer Mac Mini (Yosemite).

I've been putting off installing and setting up VirtualBox, but finally got around to doing it today. I found an old XP disk (complete with key) in a junk drawer.

The client installs but when I open it an error box pops up.

"There are no communication settings available. The application will now exit."

Don't know why, since internet access is working and Carbon Poker runs without a problem. I'll fiddle around and see if I can get it going.

I can't get the software to run either.

-Using a windows 8.1 machine.

Program starts, lets me log in, then crashes if I open a table.

I have been playing for about a week with no problems at all (windows 7 pro). The new software is really really good.

  • avoid sending Bitcoins directly to/from circle or coinbase, send to your wallet first, they like to avoid "gambling" sites, don't force them

after you do it, you will feel like a genius
You could also add a darkwallet transaction into this process:

Deposit (->), Withdraw (<-)
coinbase/circle <-> wallet <-> darkwallet <-> swc

This will add an extra transaction fee, but should ensure that you don't get blacklisted by coinbase/circle.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

In response to the people running swc through a virtual machine. I have been testing the new swc software and it appears to be working great in the following environment:

osx 10.10 host
parallels virtual machine
windows 10 technical preview guest

Dark wallet is not ready yet, specially for newbies.

Quote from dark wallet:IMPORTANT The wallet is Not Stable or Safe, and at this point you should use it with real money only at Your Own Risk.

First Beta release should come out by late March.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

The copy of XP that I installed in VirtualBox was pretty ancient, SP1. I dug around and managed to manually install SP2 and SP3, after which auto-update pulled down everything through end-of-support.

Now the client installs and seems to run fine. The problems I had seem to have been due to understandable lack of support for such an old OS. I haven't registered and played yet, only observed. There are lots of cool games. Not many players.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

I put some coin on there and have been playing a little. The software has not crashed at all or displayed any other problem that I noticed. I have no complaints regarding the look or function either.

What they need now is more activity. I like Omaha and mixed games mostly, but would like to give Badeucy a try, and action on those games is very light. I don't like Hold'em, which of course is where most of the players are.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

Just played some OFCP. I would not recommend playing for much coin, the game had several bugs. One time, I made a straight flush in FL, and did not stay in (rules state quads or better in back). Another time, the game froze, and none of the players at the table were able to set their cards, they were just placed automatically. I would of made FL that hand too. So getting screwed out of 2 FLs in an hour or so was annoying. They need to fix the bugs or take the game down until they do.

Were you or your opponent short stacked in the straight flush hand? There are complicated rules about FL when playing "table stakes" OFC/p.

l am learning OFC. I read somewhere that because of tables stakes your hand stops once you cannot make more points in the hand. So it may have stopped prior to making FL. Maybe he can post more about the hand before thinking that it is a scoring bug.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

Right, I thought the same thing in a tournament OFC/p hand. I posted the hands on bitcointalk and it was explained that since I doubled up in the hand where I made FL, I could not win any more in that hand, so the FL round gets skipped.

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

Yeh and remember FL is the same hand, so in the case of turtlehed11 it could have been the chips won in the hand where FL was made + the first FL hand.

I did already get second FL when making a straight flush on SWC so it seemed to work for me (both were deep stacks.)

Is the second FL considered a continuation of the same hand?

Re: SWCPoker - Bitcoin poker

After updating my software now I cannot open the program anymore. Every time i click it, it says "The client must be restarted. Press OK and restart the game client".

Anyone find a fix for this?
