Reaper Mangos 4703 – Easy WoW Mangos Private Server

Time for another Mangos release and as the title said, this is a clean compiled version of Mangos 4703 (without any custom patches) with Scriptdev2 Revision 156 and Unified Database 0.8.1 with Changesets 326 applied. Although you can also download the small version (minus the Unified Database), that perhaps might be useful to those who prefer to update their mangos core manually :)

While Reaper Mangos Mod 4703 (the custom version) can be found at that link (Note: if you’re not familiar enough with Mangos i’d suggest you to get this one instead)

So here are the steps :

Requirements :

1. Working MySQL Installation (if you have MySQL Installed automatically from another Repack, i’d suggest you to completely remove it unless you know how to configure it)

2. World of Warcraft Client version 2.2.3 with TBC Expansion Pack installed (because that’s what i’m using right now, so if you don’t have TBC installed and not using the latest 2.2.3 version, i can’t really help you)

3. Mangos Server :

UPDATE : Reaper Mangos 4875 has been released

IMPORTANT : If you’re upgrading from my 4651, you should download this updated batch file and overwrite the reaper-x-mangos.bat inside reaper-eazy-mangos directory with this one, btw i’d suggest you to get this one even if you’re not upgrading

Update : It seems that some people love the custom GM Island Vendor made by Silvermoon Project, so i decided to convert it so you can use it on this 4703 Release, but as a side note because there is specific item that only exists on the Silvermoon Database, if you see message on the Mangosd Window saying that some item can’t be found, you don’t need to worry about it (it doesn’t affect your gameplay)

Download GM Island NPC Custom Vendor (you just need to run the batch file included)

For advanced users only :

Optional :

This section is optional to those who want to create a public server

4. You need to know how to setup port forwarding from your router first, and also configure your firewall to allow the port specified in Mangosd.conf and Realmd.conf (if you use DSL Connection, you’ll need to know how to setup port forwarding first or else your friend won’t be able to connect to your server)

Also please read the Mangos FAQ too

Fresh Installation Steps :

1. Installing MySQL on Windows XP 32 Bit (you’ll need to have mysql installed first)

2. Extract DBC, Maps and VMaps from your World of Warcraft Client

3. Run the reaper-x-mangos.bat inside the reaper-eazy-mangos directory / folder, and you’ll see something like this, and now all you have to do is just write the full path to your mysql installation directory (where mysql.exe and mysqldump.exe can be found) ;)

4. Now you just need to choose option number 1 to install the database as shown on below image, and when prompted for your mysql root password, don’t forget to write the correct password … :)

Mangos Database Installation

5. After finished with the database installation, now you need to choose option number 4 (required, unless you know how to edit the mangosd.conf manually) to adjust the datadir and adjust the exp rate, and drop rate :)

Editing Mangosd.conf

6. Now after finished with all the above process, you’ll need to go inside your World of Warcraft installation directory (for example C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft) and then open the realmlist.wtf using notepad and …

replace :

set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
set patchlist us.version.worldofwarcraft.com

with :

set realmlist 127.0.0.1

save it and close realmlist.wtf file

7. Now you just need to run mangosd.exe and realmd.exe from your mangos directory and then the next step would be creating username of course :D by typing create username password inside the mangosd window as shown on below image as an example … followed by typing setbc username 1 … so you can choose Blood Elv and Draenei

Creating account in mangos

finally you just need to type setgm username 3 so you’ll have the GM Power, and … done !!! congrats … now all you have to do is just login using the username you’ve created before ;)

Optional :

If you want to change the server name into something else, you can use the reaper-x-mangos.bat to adjust it :)

Upgrading from Reaper Mangos 4651 :

First of all i’m really sorry that since there are many changes made to the database structure itself in Mangos, i can’t write instruction on how to upgrade your server from any version below 4651 (or it’ll be a very long post and i know that you don’t really want to read a long post) :P

So to those who are still using Mangos revision below 4651, you can contact me directly if you need help :)

and here are the step to those who are using Reaper Mangos 4651

1. Backup any custom data you’ve created before (such as custom vendors, custom weapon, custom armor, etc) using your mysql client … (i’m sure those who are creating their own custom stuff already have their own mysql client ready to be used) … but remember though if you’ve created custom vendor just make sure that it is compatible with this mangos version ;)

2. run reaper-x-mangos.bat inside the reaper-eazy-mangos directory and then choose option 99 to begin the upgrade process … and wait until it finished

3. Choose option 4 to reconfigure your mangosd.conf and no, don’t use the previous mangosd.conf because it has been changed

4. Done :)

    I have been trying to make my server work but I always get this error:

    Failed to parse patch data from server ‘http://localhost’

    I tried to change the settings in realmlist.wtf file but it doesn’t work.

      Did you run wow.exe directly and not the launcher? (if there’s a patcher/news window pop up when you ran it that means you’re running the launcher and not wow directly)

      Note: the launcher will revert all changes made to realmlist.wtf file (at least it do that the last time i checked it) so if you’ve edited the realmlist file and you’re planning to connect to private server or your own server, you need to execute wow.exe directly

      The problem was I can’t run wow.exe from wine (I compiled mangos on ubuntu server and I made some local test). Running the client from windows is OK! Thank for your help!

    hey Reaper, thanks for a cool option to have your own server..

    I to format my server, but I want to make a backup of all the chars on my server, how do I do this ?

  5. thirdimage Sep 11, 2008 at 11:37 PM

    The plot thickens…

    I have TBC client v2.4.3.8606.
    When I change the setting within the Config.wtf file, from

    set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
    set patchlist us.version.worldofwarcraft.com

    to


    set realmlist 127.0.0.1

    and then I start the client, the client resets my settings back again, so that I cannot use my new mango server!

    Anybody have same problem and/or find a fix?

    :)
