I have a question concerning setting up a testnet. I am setting up a testnet. I tried to get some testnet coin be I did not a success. But anyway is it possible to reduces the probability of getting a coin on a test net without recompiling the bitcoin source. I remember in 2011 it was relatively easy to get coins for test.

Can you set a parameter in the bitcoin.conf to reduces the hash probability
