Reaper Mangos 4875 – Easy WoW Private Server for WoW 2.3.0

Another Mangos release again after the last 4703 release (that is released one month ago), and this time the release uses Mangos Core 4875 (Clean Compiled without any custom patches) with Unified Database 331 and of course ScriptDev2 208. But as an important note, this version no longer support the old WoW 2.2.3 and you need to use the new WoW 2.3.0 in order for it to work ;)

And yet another note, since Reaper Mangos Custom version is still not finished yet (i’m really sorry for this), i’ll update this post later when it’s finished but to those who already use the previous Custom version actually you can also upgrade to this version without problem especially if you want to get this release as soon as possible, but you should make sure that :

  1. You’ve created a backup first just in case something goes wrong
  2. The Auction House bot is not going to work (don’t worry even if the configuration options is still in mangosd.conf it’s not going to affect your gameplay)
  3. The Set reputation is not going to work .. but it’s not going to affect your gameplay :)
  4. Finally the most important thing is … you’ll need to point the mangosd.conf and realmd.conf to the correct database used by the Reaper Mangosmod :)

But if you don’t feel like doing all of the above steps, then of course you can just wait for the next Reaper Mangosmod ;)

And finally here are the steps :

Requirements :

1. MySQL Database and the guide on how to install mysql

2. World of Warcraft Client version 2.3.0

3. Mangos Server :

Optional

To those who have WoW 2.3.0 enUS version and want to get the DBC File directly, feel free to download them from below link :)

OPTIONAL UPDATE :

Now you can get the updated GM Island vendor which is from the previous 4703 to be used properly on this 4875 release ;)

Download GM Island Vendor for 4875

Fresh Installation :

Important Note : Fresh installation will overwrite your database

1. First you’ll need to install MySQL

2. Extracting Maps, DBC and VMaps from your World of Warcraft installation
(You can safely ignore the Patch-2, or any not found xxx-2 message) ;)

3. Run the reaper-x-mangos.bat inside the reaper-eazy-mangos folder, and you’ll see something like below image for an example, and then you just need to write the full path to your mysql installation directory (where mysql.exe and mysqldump.exe can be found) ;)

MySQL installation directory

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

Mangos Database Installation

And one more thing, when you see something like in The Matrix movie (well … that’s how people called it) :) , you just need to wait until it finished and don’t interrupt the process

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 (although the most important thing is your datadir path

Editing Mangosd.conf

6. After finished with all of the above process, all you have to do now is just open the realmlist.wtf file in your World of Warcraft installation directory (the default location can be found at C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft) using Notepad, Wordpad, or your favorite text editor and then …

Replace :

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

With :

set realmlist 127.0.0.1

and then 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 your own username with your desired password for your own WoW server account as shown on below image followed by typing setgm to give yourself a GM level account

Creating account in mangos

Btw if you can’t see what you should type inside the mangosd window from the above image, actually you just need to type :

create username password

to create the account

setgm username (1–3)
for example setgm myusername 3

to give yourself GM Access at certain level (3 is the highest level and should only be used on your account while normal player is 0)

8. Finally if you have Burning Crusade client installed and want to be able to create Burning Crusade specific character, all you have to do is just type :

setbc username 1

to enable burning crusade expansion for your account :)

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 4703 Release :

1. Re-extract Vmaps, maps and dbc because this version no longer support the old World of Warcraft 2.2.x installation and only support the new 2.3.0 :)

2. Go into the upgrade folder inside reaper-eazy-mangos directory and run the .bat file there and wait until the process finished

3. And done ;)

Note : You don’t need to worry about your custom stuff being overwritten by the upgrade process, because unlike before this time it’s only upgrade the necessary stuff only and not going to overwrite your custom stuff (but i assume that you’re using high id numbers for your custom stuff)

Finally i’d suggest you to check out the GM Commands List because there are some changes made at the GM Commands especially at the lookup command

  1. Thanks alot man! With this great pack I’ve been able to skip all the daunting compilation of an emu core and just run the parts I need. You rock!

  2. “System cannot find the file specified” when i put the path
    Why can’t it find it when i’m staring at it right THERE!

  3. I think(not sure because mine is not working that far yet) that you have to create one using mangosd in the reaper mangos folder …

  4. Hello!
    Did the Server works also with client version 3.0.3 (TBC)?
    The mangosd and realmd are runing, realmlist is updated to 127.0.0.1, user is created, but I get “The information you have entered is not valid” if I try to connect me via the client to the server on a local.
    (No errors given by the server…)

    Regards.
