WoW Mangos 4524 modified to work with WoW 2.1.3 and 2.2

Another WoW Mangos Release time … basically this release is to those who’s prefer to stick with their WoW 2.2 Client and not planning on reverting to the previous 2.1.3 patch. And i’ve only done a small modification so that it’ll accept the 2.1.3 and 2.2 client only. But as a note, 2.2 is still not officially supported yet by the Mangos team (and i don’t know when it’ll be fully supported). So if you found any errors message when used on 2.2 client you just need to be patience :P

As an addition, from this release i’ve decided to stick with only 1 release that contain the full database dump (because of my slow connection), but to those who’s already using my previous wow mangos 4488 and mangos 4505 compilation, you don’t need to worry about it because you can also upgrade from your previous version without problem ;)

One more thing, the batch files i’ve created is only tested on Windows XP SP2 … i haven’t tried it on Vista yet, so to those who’s running Vista perhaps could give it a test and tell me is it working for Vista too or not :)

Update : If you’ve just upgraded into 2.2.2 recently, and not planning on reverting your wow installation to 2.1.3 or 2.2 … you can try my new Mangos 4535 Release (ScriptDev2 137, extracted DBC from WoW 2.2.2)

Just like before … here are the download link :

# Modified Mangos 4524, ScriptDev2 136, Project Silvermoon Database Rev 18 | Megaupload

# Modified Mangos 4524, ScriptDev2 136, Project Silvermoon Database Rev 18 | Rapidshare

Okay … and here are the steps to use it :

Requirements :

1. MySQL : Look at my previous post more info about installing mysql

2. .NET Runtime 2 or other files that is related to your system (if you get error message saying that MSVCx.dll can’t be found or missing runtime … you just need to go to Microsoft website to download it … although this is a rare case but it seems that some people experiencing this issue)

Upgrading from Previous Version :

1. Extract the archive somewhere in your harddisk for example C:\reaper-mangos-R4524 and then go to reaper-eazy-mangos directory

2. Run the reaper-x-mangos.bat and choose the option to backup your data and wait until the process finished

3. After finished with the backup process, then you’ll be at the menu screen once again … and this time you just need to choose Installation from the menu … and wait

4. Now you just need to choose Restore, to restore your character data …

5. Now for the last step … you just need to choose the Mangos Config Editor from the menu and adjust it accordingly (especially at the datadir to point to the previous data directory location) … and you’re done

That is Omega and Ultima

Fresh WoW Mangos Install :

Note : All tools located in tools directory

1. Copy all files inside the MapExtractor Directory into C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft (this is the default installation path for World of Warcraft) and then run the extract-map.bat

2. Copy all files inside VmapExtractAssembler into C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft and run makevmaps_SIMPLE.bat … and wait again until it finished

3. Copy all files inside DBC Extractor into C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Data\enUS … and run the extract.bat … and wait until it finished

Note : in order to use DBC Extractor you’ll need to have Microsoft .NET 2 Runtime (search the microsoft website for it)

4. Move vmaps, maps, and dbc folder from your World of Warcraft game directory into C:\reaper-mangos-R4524\data (create folder named data first)

the rest is just the same like the upgrade process with the exception, you don’t need to choose to backup or restore your data

And after finished everything as specified in the upgrade process, you just need to run mangosd.exe and realmd.exe and add your own username by typing create blabla blabla as shown on below image :)

Creating Account in mangos

As a bonus, i’ve also added a realmlist ip changer (in the menu) so those who’s having problem with configuring their realmlist to be accessible from LAN, can use it to make things easier ;)

Special Note to WoW 2.2 Users :

If you previously haven’t extracted the DBC files, maps and vmaps files from your WoW 2.1.3 client, and you get an error message saying that Patch-enUS-2.MPQ can’t be found … you can just safely ignore that error message

I’ve tested the 2.2 Client with this modified 4524 Mangos and everything seems to work fine (but perhaps that’s just me since i never played on official server) except that you’ll see lots of message on your mangosd window

And of course that’s because 2.2 is still not supported yet by Mangos … but to those who’s running wow 2.1.3 all i can say is … everything seems to be good and you won’t see message that’s only get shown when running the WoW 2.2 client ;)

here’s a screenshot taken using WoW 2.2 :

    Did you run ‘reaper-x-mangos.bat’ inside the reaper-eazy-mangos folder?
    Try doing this and choose 1. for install and type in your sql bin file path.
    This will import your database.

  2. What the… i just found out that my vmaps folder is only 26,2 mb?!?! i have done it 2 times whitout interfering…

  3. @will
    Are you sure you have an SQL account named “mangos”? Maybe you should edit the .conf files and change the account name to “root” … followed by the password you entered when you configured MySQL.

  5. I guess Mangos interprets \r as a special code, that’s why c:\mangos… is kept, but c:\reaper… is truncated. And that’s why c:/reaper… will work. I used the mangos-path example above although that’s not my directory name without realizing that with “mangos” in the path there’s no problem.

    Here are my file counts (not necessarily the correct ones, but Mangos runs). German client, patched up to 2.1.3, never above.

    maps: 3492 (1,06 GB)
    vmaps: 3299 (1,75 GB)
    dbc: 176 (43,8 MB)

    One problem still remains: At several locations in the addon world Mangos crashes with this message:

    ERROR:ProcDamageAndSpell: spell 29838 (an attacker’s aura source) not have record in `spell_proc_event`)

    Considering I have a pretty clean install of WoW, I have no idea why this data is missing.

    PS: Where can I find a list of actually working gm commands? With this an a much older version of Mangos the command “.learnsk” doesn’t work. How do you set skills for a character?

  6. hi i hope some one could help me please i have spent the last two weeks trying to get this to work im in need of help pleasee i in adoption home where i keep the childern here under my care and i ma trying to keep them into wow to keep them out of trouble i am stuck at the mamgos.exe it tells me that cannot connect to world database 127.0.0.1;3306;mangos;mangos;mangos also above that it says mysql database 127.0.0.1 access deined for user mangos please help email me if you could ty [email protected] ty

  7. Found the ‘server.log’ file, its probobly easier to read than the screenshot.

  8. Everything worked fine up until the last steps then.

    http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/2012/mangoszg8.jpg

    Has anyone worked out how to get past this, unlike the others my ‘0004331.map’ really does not exist but the other error about placing in appropriate directories?

    I put the ‘dbc’, ‘maps’ & ‘vmaps’ folders into the following:

    D:\Program Files\reaper-mangos-R4524\data

    (D is my default drive and where everything is installed)

    So the three directories are as follows:

    D:\Program Files\reaper-mangos-R4524\data\dbc
    D:\Program Files\reaper-mangos-R4524\data\maps
    D:\Program Files\reaper-mangos-R4524\data\vmaps

    Can anyone see where/how I have gone wrong with this?

    Even if I get that working the map file ‘0004331.map’ not being in the folder worries me as how many times should I try running the bats with the same results?

  9. To fix the “Cannot locate 0004431.map” I used forward-slashes (‘/’) instead of backslashes (‘\’) in the DataDir path.

  10. I’ve been having the same problems running mangosd.exe
    First error message it was unable to find the maps directory.
    It was looking for C:\Mangos\data/maps
    I changed my datadir from C:\Mangos\data to C:\Mangos\data\ and it now finds the maps directory but still cannot locate 0004331.map
    The file is in the directory and I have reran the map extraction 4 times now.
    It keeps looking for C:\Mangos\data\maps/0004331.map
    Shouldn’t it be looking for C:Mangos\data\maps004331.map?
    I was originally using reaper-magos-R4524 as the directory name but got tired of typing it.

  11. Than i tried to start all over again (a “Fresh WoW Mangos Install”) and i got the same problem as Maikl and Nikolaibroxz.

    About the extension to the .conf file, i was asking just because my text editor can’t save as a .conf, than i’ve to choose a random extension (like .odt) to save the file and than edit it’s extension to .conf again…
    But it doesn’t work, so i need to open it in my text editor and see what i want to change, than i open the .conf in a notepad (in which the .conf becomes all messy) and search for the things that i’ve already changed in the other editor in order to save a .conf file. That’s why i asked about the real extension…

    Pew…

    Thank you.

  12. or, hmmm may be can Author of this ManGos upload somewhere all maps in archive?? so they can be easy downloaded…
    cuz
