Mangos 4535 ScriptDev2 137 work with WoW 2.1.3, 2.2, and 2.2.2

I just noticed today that patch 2.2.2 has been released … and so that’s why i’ve decided to upload another release of WoW Mangos for WoW 2.2.2 but for optimal result you should use it on 2.1.3 though since 2.2 and 2.2.2 just gets released this week, so it’s not fully supported yet … but i’ve decided to upload this eventhough i just released 4524 few days ago …

Although i don’t see any problem at all (but that’s because of my lack knowledge about World of Warcraft itself) … but … at least the mangosd.exe process is not crash :P and it is still running in the background normally. As another note, since the only files changed in 2.2+ is just the DBC files, i’ve included the DBC files to make thing easier for you … and all you have to do is just extract the VMaps and Maps files and then configure the datadir, and lastly you just need to import the database

But i think it’d be better if i list the steps :)

UPDATE : If you just recently upgraded into WoW 2.2.3 … please check my new Mangos 4577, Scriptdev2 140 and with Project Silvermoon and Unified Database included ;)

Requirements :

Upgrading from previous Mangos 4488, 4505, and 4525 release :

Note : Look for my previous post for MySQL Installation guide, because i assume you’ve done installing and configuring mysql ;)

1. Copy the dbc files included overwriting previously extracted DBC Files

2. Run the reaper-x-mangos.bat inside reaper-eazy-mangos directory, and choose to backup your character first

3. Then choose Installation / Upgrade … and wait until finished

4. Now choose the Restore option to restore your precious character data

5. Choose the option to adjust the datadir, and configure the exp rate, etc …

6. Now you need to go into your World of Warcraft installation directory, and then delete the Cache directory there and then run mangosd.exe and realmd.exe you’re done

Optional : Since this 4535 release, i’ve modified the batch script so to those who want to change their realm name can do it using the menu provided instead of executing the sql queries manually :)

Fresh Installation :

1. Copy all files from MapExtractor directory and VMaps Extractor and Assembler into your World of Warcraft Installation directory and then run extract-map.bat first and wait until it’s finished, after finished now you need to run the makevmaps_SIMPLE.bat and wait until Press Any Key To Continue Message appear (that mean you’ve finished extracting the VMaps) … before that message appear don’t close that window (don’t worry it’ll took a while to finish this process) :)

2. After finished with the previous steps, now you just need to move the VMaps and Maps directory which is created automatically from the previous step into the same directory as your DBC Directory

3. Now you just need to follow the upgrade process, because the next steps is just the same like the Upgrading process with the exception if you’re doing a fresh install, you don’t need to perform backup first

Screenshot taken using WoW 2.2.2 (it’s still the same old character, i’m just too lazy to create a new character lol) :

Yet another screenshot

Another note : WoW 2.2 and 2.2.2 still not fully supported by Mangos, so if you found any errors message when used on WoW 2.2, or 2.2.2 … you just need to wait until the Mangos team has released the fully compatible … this is just a quick and dirty way so you can play on WoW 2.2.2 which is just released today

  1. Reaper-X, basically, Thanks, Thanks, Thanks. With some help I got my server working. And I’m enjoying playing it with one other person. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks.

  2. I am really trying to get this working but this site makes it soo hard!

    Please can you just have a page with the list of versions on it with the latest at the top.

    Each page I go to at the top it has update go to.. blah…..

    Please just one page which is up to date not linking through a chain of about 6 pages to get the latest version would be a godsend.

  3. Ello there
    When I run my Mangosd and Realmd it says that It can’t connect to World Database 127.0.0.1;3306;mangos;mangos;mangos
