I really want to join these things, but I don't have enough C++ knowledge, I'm merely still reading up the basics and trying to ensure I have a "College Degree" on things, haha.

EDIT: By the way, are we going to test it out by making a Python script about it or downloading a full node and modifying it? What's the best OS and IDE to use then?

Yes, it would need a Python test. There are many examples in test/functional/ folder of the BCHN software.

A new test should be added to show that the new parameter works and also if a user supplies bad values, that the software tells them about the problem in a suitable way.

Easiest OS to develop on is some well supported Linux like Ubuntu (eoan, focal or bionic) or Debian 10.

A first step would be to download the source code (from GitLab or Github) and get it to build and run. There are build instruction files for various OS's in the doc/ folder.

The latest QtCreator is a nice IDE for working with this codebase.
