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 :

  1. Hi reaper-x

    Im using Windows Vista to setup my WoW server,

    when i start mangosd.exe it says:

    “cannot connect to world database 127.0.0.1;3306;mangos;mangos;mangos”

    it also says

    “could not connect to MySql database at 127.0.0.1: acces denied for user ‘Mangos @ localhost'”

    how do i solve this problem?

    kindest regards,

    Vista user

  2. Hello Reaper, I’ve been trying to set up a server, took me 2 days of fustration on an window xp pc, and I had no problem doing it on my window vista laptop.. Anyhow here’s the problem, I can’t use ad.exe, or extract any vmap files, so I did it on my window vista and copied it into my pc, everything was going well but now I’m getting a weird problem, I try to launch mangosd.exe and it displays this log

    and then it gives me an error, I’ve already reinstalled mysql, as well as wow and expansion, I’ve already changed the ip and everything, but I haven’t been able to launch mangosd.exe and can’t manage to create an account/host server, any idea what the problem might be? Thanks in advance.

  3. Ok! I have installed everything
    The private server works PERFECTLY for me!
    And ive set it up through hamachi so my friend across Australia can connect
    But My friends can connect to the server but when they choose a realm it brings them back to the realm list.
    Ive tried everything i can think of! And ive browsed through here and done everything i can! Help!

  4. i Meant How to add “custom” vendors whit other names and such eks: Thrall named little orc, and he sells food (lol) u gett it? ^^

  5. # finp

    Unfortunately no :) … because antrix use different database layout

    as for making it publicly available (public server) … yes it’s possible to make it online ;)

    # Persona

    Have you tried downloading the batch file update ? (i made a mistake on the included batch file in 4535, and the updated batch file fix that problem) ;)

    # Nikolaibroxz

    You can use the .addspw and .addvendoritem ;)

  6. proper noob question but will this be online?
    also if not how can i make it?
    ive got a running antrix, if i just start up the mangoes and swap db’s would it work?
    thanks

  7. ive had realy fun whit server a time now Even added own items ^^ (woho) But How Do I Add Vendors And Custom NPC`s?

  8. actually (sorry to spam post btw) It sems my problem includes anything with a timer. Spells, opening objects or crafting.

  9. I seem to also be having trouble interacting with world objects (i.e. food crates and quest items) any way to fix this?

  10. :P Thank you very much Reaper! It works beatifully! It’s great because i’m not from US so too pay to play it is very costly! Thanks!

  11. Again can someone help me? I’m having the “unable do validate wow” (my version is 2.2.2). And i did a fresh install of the 4524. How do i solve the problem? In the realmlist.wtf i inserted my ip adress, is that all i have to do? What’s missing?

  12. # SnaGGe

    use the .targetobject command :)

    # persona

    Drop rate ? btw have you tried downloading the updated batch file from my new 4535 release ? (don’t worry its just a small batch file update only) ;)

    # Xeraz

    You don’t need to use hamachi if you already set up some port forwarding, here are what you should do :

    Note : i assume you’ve changed your realmd.realmlist table ip address to your dyndns address or your own static ip address

    1. Change the Realmd port into another values above 7000 and then run the realmd.exe

    2. Use online port scanner to see if your specified port for realmd can be accessed

    http://www.grc.com (a good place to port scan your computer)

    3. If you can see that port open, now that mean you can use that port, if not and you’re behind router try to setup port forwarding to that new port used by realmd until you can see that port is accessible

    4. When everything finished, now you need to tell your client to change their realmlist.wtf into something like this

    yourdyndnsaddress:realmdport

    and you’re done :)

  13. damn.. again and again… I tried change port, tried run server on hamachi and still he gets that table with realm selection.

  14. okay new problem, lol. I have adjusted the drop rates both using the console and directly using the mangos config file and the drop rates are still at 1, even if I check the drop rates physically they are still at 1. Tis very perplexing, this goes for all the rates, honor, xp, rest, and loots. Please helpz :)

  15. my friends can not get in to realm but they can see the realm: when they trying to get inn to realm they come back to realmlist but i can play:(. and how to get vendors display id i have tested .npc .npcinfo but it dont work(a lot of things are showed but the onli id is instance id and thats 0 at everything)
