Download the Litecoin client if you don't already have it: https://litecoin.org/
  If you do have the client already, copy the binary to a new folder!*


*** Back up your existing wallet first, just in case! ***

Make a new file: litecoin.conf
  Add a line in the file: testnet=1

Windows: make a new file: run.bat
  Add a line in the file: litecoin-qt.exe -datadir=%~dp0
  Doing the above will make the Litecoin client save the files to where you run litecoin-qt.exe from. If you don't use the -datadir flag, it might overwrite your existing wallet!

Linux/Mac: run the binary using the -datadir=/path/to/directory/of/binary flag
  * If your binary is installed in the system, you can just call it with the above flag without copying the file locally.

Run the client in testnet mode and get your testnet address. Post your address here and I'll send you 500 coins!

Here's an address to test your coins with: mvoZ3sQLrpeYGR754cyc44ny5gXENPLcrC - you can send them around to other people who post in this thread too!

Im not understanding your quick instruction -

I copied all the litecoin files and moved it to a different directory and renamed it to Testnet  -

folder (daemon)
folder (src)
COPYING.txt
litecoin.conf
Litecoin-qt.exe
readme.txt
run.bat
uninstall.exe.

How do I run a testnet? I have 40 LTC. Do I need to send it to litecointool.com then you'll send back 500 LTC to my wallet?

Just mine some - I got around 20,000 coins mining the testnet over a weekend with my CPU.

I'll send you a couple though

Edit: Just sent you 1,000 testnet coins.

Im struggling too - my address is LUtCXpLrzNtQJiZs4iHVD6aazfjH8kzsGZ

Hey wavelength thanks a lot for the coins! I must be doing something wrong because I run the getbalance and I still get 0 back. I also run the getreceivedbyaddress with my address mjdFNQkhrJF8tweb1aLYRpwcRQXtwaSjbm but still 0 balance :/

Yeah you guys are doing something way wrong.

Are you on windows? If so, assuming you installed your litecoin in the default, just run:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Litecoin\litecoin-qt.exe" -testnet

(Be sure your normal Litecoin-QT is closed and back up your wallet!)

Again: BACKUP YOUR NORMAL LTC WALLET FIRST

Try with this run.bat
Code: [Select]
@echo off
litecoin-qt.exe -datadir=%~dp0
end
exit
double click on it.You have to be sure this is bat file no run.bat.txt file.

Don't do this you will corrupt blockchain for normal network and also replace the wallet with testnet one.

This is not testnet address - when you start wallet from the run.bat you have to see green wallet and of the top must write - testnet

filchef it is not that I need more testcoins 1000 are more than enough! The problem is that I never received 1000 testcoins and I did a -rescan and still nothing... I am starting the deamon using the -testnet flag.. Can you please try and send me 10 more to see if it will work? Have encountered something similar in the past?
Thanks a lot!
