Mangos 4602, ScriptDev2 145 with Unified Database 0.7.5 CS319 work with WoW 2.1.3 to 2.2.3

Time for another Mangos release again :) … this time the Mangos revision used is 4602 with ScriptDev2 145, and as a warning that although you can play it using WoW Client version 2.2.x (such as WoW 2.2.0, 2.2.2, and 2.2.3), but it’s still not officially supported, so expect something to behave strange for example, hidden teleport in Orgrimmar when you are using WoW 2.2.x client. Although there’s already a fix for it, but since i prefer to distribute a clean compiled version without adding custom patch (such as database, script, mangos core), i decided not to include it :)

Things to note in this version :

1. I decided not to include the Project Silvermoon Database because Project Silvermoon Database website is down (it has been several days if i remembered it correctly)

2. No custom vendor on GM Island (because this is using Unified Database only, and custom vendor which is available on GM Island can only be found in Project Silvermoon database)

3. As for feeding pet … i’m not to sure on how to test it (seriously, because i never play on official server, though i wish i could play too)

That’s it … and now here are the steps :

Requirements :

Update : Reaper Mangos 4629 with ScriptDev2 150 and Dual Database has been released :)

1. MySQL (link to my previous post on how to install mysql)

2. Mangos + Database :

Optional :

Fresh Installation Guide (follow this if you’re planning on installing Mangos for the first time) :

1. Extract Maps, Vmaps and dbc files from WoW Client

2. Extract the self extracting archive somewhere, or you can just simply run it and choose to extract into the current directory (don’t worry it’ll create the ReaperMangos4602 folder automatically)

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

Reaper Eazy Mangos

4. After finished writing the full path to your mysql installation directory, now you just need to choose option #1 to install the database for you and when prompted for your root password, you just need to write your mysql root password (remember the mysql installation ?) ;)

Database installation

5. After finished with the above process, now you just need to choose option #4, and adjust each option accordingly (the most important thing is your Datadir location)

Mangos Datadir

6. Now you need to go into your World of Warcraft Installation directory and open the realmlist.wtf file using notepad and then change these lines :

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

into :

set realmlist 127.0.0.1

7. Now run mangosd.exe and realmd.exe

8. The first thing you should do of course create a new account for you, and this can be done by typing create username password in the mangosd window as shown on below image

Creating Account in mangos

But a normal account can be boring of course, so we need to configure our username to be a GM, and this can be done by simply typing setgm username 3 (the highest level of course, so you can do anything you want in your server) :P … and done :)

Upgrading from 4577 or below version (note: i only test it from Mangos 4488++ so if you’re using any version lower than 4488, i can’t give you any support)

1. Run the reaper-x-mangos.bat, and then go with option #99 and wait until finished

2. Then choose to backup your database

3. After finished with the backup process now you just need to choose the first option to install the database

4. Now you just need to choose the restore option

5. For the last step you just need to continue with configuring datadir (If you’re using ReaperMangos4577 previously, you just need to copy the previous mangosd.conf and realmd.conf into ReaperMangos4602 directory and done) :)

  1. PLS someone help me!!! I can’t extract the maps, because I can’t find anywhere the file (extract-map.bat) I search for it everywhere but I can’t find it! Please someone give me a link!

  2. # Faihugo

    I’ve make sure the update process is a little bit easier in 4629 release :) try updating to that release and let me know if you still having problem :)

    # nexus

    Done, in my latest 4629 ;) .. btw did you mean, compiling mangos ? if so, i can create the tutorial for it if you want :)

    # Zachari

    I have created 3 blood elv with different class without any problem at all :(

    btw have you tried using the latest 4629 ?

    as a side note, actually i don’t really have any problem with blood elv even with the older release, so i’m guessing that’s more into OS problem

    for example, someone who’s running Vista often experience mangosd process crash when talking to guard but i can’t reproduce that (im running XP SP2 update till december 2006)

    # Alex

    You’ll need to re-extract the dbc files again :)

  3. Hey, I did everything perfectly, but the last minute shocked me.

    As I open realmd and mangosd Mangosd gives me an error message:::

    You have _outdated_ DBC files. Please extract correct versions from current using client.

    I’ve already tried re-extracting them, but same message. Can someone please E-MAIL me the answer!

    THANKS!

  4. ok reaper, interesting one for you
    im running mangos 4602, installed the server fine, no problems on installing it.

    everything works but the bloodelves. everytime you log onto a bloodelf it crashes wow, with error 132 violation access error. expansion works fine, outlands work fine, all outlands instances and expansion instances work excelent.

    its just once a bloodelf loads the game crashes, any chance on helping??? all TBC is set correctly

    thanks Zachari

  5. Hello reaper im having a problem with the configure i get stuck at the service restart it doesnt work and i cant figure out why you or someone help me please would be very greatful

  6. First of all, steller guide Reaper-X. Installation went smooth as a whistle. Having fun with GM powers.

    Maybe this is the wrong place to post this question. I notice that nearly all of the NPC characters have an odd characteristic: They float. Not all of the time. When they go into a walking animation, they’re back on the “ground”. But the minute they stop, they “pop” back off the ground. Then they move and return to the ground and then “pop” back. Anyone else have this problem or can point me out to the right place?

    Thanks in advance…

  7. Hi Reaper,
    This a great guide for setting up a private server. My wife and I appreciate it. =D Could please go over what the proper order is for updating the server for us nubs. Thx

  8. Hi Reaper

    do you plan do release a build of the 0.8 mangos that seems to support 2.2.3 ?

    and could you create a tutorial for building our own mangos… It will be great to have that… it seems complicated…

    Thanks !

  9. Trying to reinstall wow from scratch now. starting off with the first 5 cd’s of wow, on the fifth cd, it goes into : error. couse a repair file isnt big enough or some bullshit, anyone knows why, oh how i hate this computer..

  10. xXWoWXx:

    Found a work around for the feed pet problem. Use the GM command ” .learn 1539 ” to get the feed pet effect spell. Just use this spell instead of the normal feed pet spell. The effect of this spell is a little slower then normal but it works. Just use it whenever you get the chance too.

  11. xXWoWXx

    Thanks for the suggestion, but moving the data folders did not make a difference.

    When I try to change the weather with the .wchange command, it just keeps telling me:

    Weather can’t be changed for this zone.

    So, am I really the only one with this issue? It works for you?

  12. first ty reaper and anybody that has helpped me all 16 kids ty you very much i just got one question i could i turn on globe chat so they could speak to each other please help

  13. #Phen
    You need to put ur maps, vmaps, and dbc folders into your C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\data. Also change your config (press #1 in reaper-eazy-mangos.batch i believe) and change the Directory in which the folders (maps,vmaps,dbc) are in to C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\data. Good Luck. :)

  14. Philip

    If it says a map is missing you either do not have the BC expansion installed when you made the maps or you are not getting all maps because you do not have the correct wow patch installed.

    Phen

    Try logging in as a GM and use the cammand wchange

    wchange,”Syntax: .wchange #weathertype #status Set current weather to #weathertype with an intensity of #status. #weathertype can be 1 for rain, 2 for snow, and 3 for sand. #status can be 0 for disabled, and 1 for enabled.”

    This will tell you if its working or not.

  15. Erm, what I meant is that in my mangosd.conf I have this:

    # Activate weather system
    # Default: 1 (true)
    # 0 (false)
    ActivateWeather = 1

    But it’s simply not happening.

  16. Something strange: I don’t think I get weather changes anymore since the newest update. D:
    Weather definitely is enabled in the WoW preferences, but I haven’t had any rain or mist for a while now and it is worrying me.

    Is this happening to anyone else? Any idea how to fix it?

  17. Reaper or anyone, i have come to the stage where i should open mangosd and realmd, but when i open them mangosd shows: after WORLD (three times)
    that some existance of a map don’t exist
    C:\program\World of Warcraft\data/maps/0004331.map
    Not exists!

    i really really would like help with this, tryed to get a server up for days and nights. almost about to litteraly destroy my computer.

    Also, is it supposed after u write 4 in the menu a couple of stages before, that you get “Item drop rate” up?

    Would love some response to this. thanks.

  18. Reaper:

    I got everything to work now even the server. Thank you very much. Also if it would not be too much of a hassle is if you could make a tutorial on how to make custom weapons and vendors. Thanks in advance. :D

  19. You have done the best work Reaper-x. Good job.

    Could you continue to include silvermoon db with you updates. I have fould more things working in silver than UDB. Silver has not been updated as often as UDB but the silver website is back up with a new release SDB 18.5

    I would love to see this continue to be apart of your upgrades.

    Infact I am very fond of the idea that you can switch between the two DBs.

    Thanks for the great work.
