Reaper Mangos 5082 – Easy WoW Private Server for WoW 2.3.3

Here we go again, another important and vital patch. Previously we took a vote using comments on the site and asked would you prefer a update that runs 2.3.3 or wait for a more compatible version. Well after countless tests on our Test-Server we have found only 2 very small bugs while running it. I highly recommend updating to this version because it applys major updates to the database and provides 2.3.3 support!

Updated in this Revision:

  • Support for Patch 2.3.3
  • ScriptDev2 Updated to 241
  • AuctionHouse Improvements
  • More Compatible Database
  • New Quests
  • New Items
  • New Objects
  • New NPC’s
  • Stormwind has 1/10th more NPC’s
  • Bug with humans getting confused with orcs by NPC’s
  • Zones Redone:
    • Blasted Lands
    • Swamp of Sorrows
    • Deadwind Pass
    • StrangleThorn Vale
    • Duskwood
    • Westfall
    • Redridge Mountains
    • Fix one Karazhan quest by adding missing spawns

Fresh Install:
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)–This only happens if your extracting from patch 2.3.0

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 Input Directory

4. Selection Option 1 by pressing “1” on the keyboard and pressing enter.
Note: This will wipe out any previous versions of WoW you have in your database.

6. After finished with all of the above process, all you have to do now is just open the 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
set patchlist

With :

set realmlist

and then save it and close 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

By the way, 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

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 5045 Release:

1. Re-extract vmaps, maps and dbc because this version no longer supports the old World of Warcraft 2.3.2 installation and only supports the new 2.3.3

2. Go into your WoW Reaper Server Directory, and open reaper-eazy-mangos. Next I recommend opening the batch file and backing up your character data. This is optional though.

3. Open the Folder called “Upgrade” and run reaper-x-upgrade.bat.

4. Next type in the directory to the Bin Folder where your mysql.exe and mysqldump.exe files are located.

5. Then make sure that you are upgrading from the latest previous version or else you WILL corrupt your database and possibly lose your character data.
Upgrade Warning

Guide on how to Edit Mangos.Conf
Thanks for the Mangosd.conf edit guide Jeremy!

First off make sure that you have your MySQL running before doing anything.

You need to go back into the reaper folder (C:\Reaper-X-Easy-MaNGOS\reaper-eazy-mangos)
And run the batch file called reaper-x-mangos, there is an option there to setup your LAN or IP for use, This new batch file does correctly setup your DB to the IP you enter in this batch file. Once you’ve done that, if you haven’t gone back in to edit the config files in your reaper folder mentioned above, you need to do that, there is a section in there with this.

# Data directory setting.
# Important: DataDir needs to be quoted, as it is a string which may
# contain space characters.
DataDir = “C:\Reaper-X\data”

This is an example of waht it may look like. You need to change this to the path where you put your data folder with the maps, vmaps, and dbc’s.

Second, …

# Database connection settings for the world server.
# Default: hostname;port;username;password;database
# .;somenumber;username;password;database – use named pipes at Windows
# Named pipes: mySQL required adding “enable-named-pipe” to [mysqld] section my.ini
# .;/path/to/unix_socket;username;password;database – use Unix sockets at Unix/Linux
# Unix sockets: experimental, not tested
LoginDatabaseInfo = “;3306;ROOT;PASSWORD;realmd”
WorldDatabaseInfo = “;3306;ROOT;PASSWORD;mangos”
CharacterDatabaseInfo = “;3306;ROOT;PASSWORD;characters”

Above, you need to change the MANGO;MANGOS to your root DB name, likey it’s just root, and YOUR batabase (DB) password (you should know this)

YOU DO NOT CHANGE THE IP’S here or in the realmd file, ONLY THROUGH THAT BATCH FILE, i mentioned above. (that file does it for you)

Next open scriptdev2.conf and realmd.conf and edit the info for them to connect to your database as well.

Hope you enjoy this release if you have any questions feel free to post them as a comment below!

  1. this is probably a really dumb question but i have made it all the way through the guide and when i go to log in i cannot. What exactly do i put into username and password at the login screen?

  2. can any1 help i cant change my realmlist to my ip when i go to save it it says

    Cannot create the C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\ file.

    ive even tried making a new text document but i cant figure out why i cant save it

  3. @Muskar: It only seems messy to me until I use SQLYog to export to CSV format be sure to click the EXCEL compatible output feature and you can then also import from those same CSV Excel files after making edits.

    If you export both old and new formats it is a real breeze to spot differences and stubbing in a new column is also usually fairly straightforward.

    I have moved over to the 5116 Blog thread BTW and wont be checking back to this one..

  4. hey… i dont know what to do or how to do this… can anyone give me a runthrough on how toget to play the test server?

  5. Hey guys, I can run this perfect locally, but I ran into some problems when trying to use my IP. I ran the .bat file and changed all the config files to my IP, but I have seen somewhere that I need to do this:

    “- open command prompt and type below command
    – C:\MySQL\Bin\mysql -u root
    – Use `realmd`;
    – UPDATE `realmlist` SET `name` = ‘The server name‘,
    `address` = ‘Change this to use your public IP‘ WHERE `id`=1 LIMIT 1 ;
    – quit;”

    Well when I try this, it doesn’t work..I get this:

    “ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ ”

    So i tried doing this instead: mysql -u root -p
    It then prompts me for a password, I enter mine, then I get this error…

    Nevermind…scratch all that above…I took care of all that, but I am still getting this error when I try to start mangosd:

    “World Database: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX;3306;root;root;mangos
    Could not connect to MySQL database at XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: Host ‘XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX’ is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

    Cannot connect to world database XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX;3306;root;root;mangos”

    I have tried changing the “root;root” back and forth to “mangos;mangos” as well.

    Thanks in advance

  6. Guess what engine starts triggers w/ wow. myisam.. Guess what I just saw online.

    MyISAM is the default storage engine. It is based on the older ISAM code but has many useful extensions. (Note that MySQL 5.0 does not support ISAM .)

  7. @ANTZ
    I totally agree!

    # Reaper / Oatman

    I think for future releases the fedback needs to be split into several sections something like:-

    Install problems
    Setup problems
    Database Issues
    Networking Issues

    I believe it would help sort out the scramble of posts we currently get, with many many people posting the same stuff


    [email protected]

    ScriptDev2 questions, where can I get updated scripts and only from trusted sources? How could I write my own triggers for these said events?

  8. Ok, an additional question:

    How do I edit the level requirements for each GM level?

    I would like to have it this way:
    GM4 (Admin) – 255
    GM3 – 100
    GM2 – 90
    GM1 – 80
    GM0 (Players) – 70

    This IS possible, since I have seen it before on another MaNGoS server.

    If anyone know how to do this, please let me know.

  9. #Slayer
    It’s not the password I’m worried about, the username isn’t usually different than root. It’s not very simple to change, so if you aren’t completely sure your username is “root”, try that.

    Did you forget to put the 2 extracters in “C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft” or wherever you have world of warcraft installed?

    Sure looks like it.

    Ok this may seem a little off-topic since it’s related to this post instead, but since the other topic is old, I’ll give this a try:

    I have a problem. I added a few objects and I can’t seem to find a way to delete them again.
    .targetobject does only find a Rich Thorium Vein, and if I do .targetobject 22083 it can’t find anything.
    .delobject 22083 doesn’t work either.

    Any ideas or support?

    In addition, I spawned a boss twice and the second one isn’t targetable or anything so I can’t delete it, this is awful since I spawned it a wrong spot.

    Any help?

    Additional information; I do no have any experience of editing MaNGoS outside of WoW, so please if you refer to editing tables or other data, please explain it more detailed.

  10. Please disregard the “C:\Users\ShawnDB\Documents\server\Reaper-X-Easy-MaNGOS\Tools\MapExtractor>extract-map.bat
    A subdirectory or file maps already exists.”

    I know this is because the “maps” file is there obviously.

  11. Hey guys, i am having a problem… :(
    when I run “extract-map.bat”, a cmd flashes really fast and creates an empty “maps” folder.

    I ran the batch file from cmd again to see what the cmd window said and this is it:

    A subdirectory or file maps already exists.
    Opening ./Data/patch-2.MPQ
    Error opening archive ‘./Data/patch-2.MPQ’: File operation Error

    Thanks for the help in advance.

  12. #informative
    Thanks for the support, I will attempt to do so.
    I’m thinking of doing a complete fresh install without the backup of my characters since it seems so messy… the backing up bugs it all I think, it’s really annoying that the folders have changed and I haven’t found a manual backing up guide from previous releases to this one.

    I will attempt to backup my data first though, and if that doesn’t work I will do a complete fresh install.

    If that doesn’t work I will post my errors here =)

  13. Oops ok so those posts earlier one finally took and then I reposted later and it took also. If you can edit out one of those lists would be great. I hat being a blog spammer..

    Yeah cameron. It’s not really that tough with the nice step by step menus and repack done by Reaper-X and Oatman here. The depth and quality of this mangos software brings with it an added complexity that is unavoidable.

    If you want a no brain single click server Blizzard already provides that for a modest fee. If you want a super easy two click private server, I started out with an “Ascent” repack by Knaur (search for it -google- still our friend) that was pretty much click setup and follow the prompts and it was tough to mess it up. Little bit buggy and crashed sometimes but they included an auto-restarter for when it crashed.

    If you have some hours to put in and eventually want your private server to be as close to the real retail, I think you are tracking the correct forum/blog right here.

  14. ok it took my list that time. I use this to try out a new version. Usually play a hunter to like 20 then do the same with a lock to 10 and paladin to 10 to get imp/voidwalker and rez for pally. Please add more things you like to test for so I can add them to my list. Then when new versions come out we can more effectively test and cehck off what we know works and share the insight and understanding and the progress. =)

  15. Testing checklist:
    [ ] Spell Damage bonuses from items being applied?
    [ ] Boats working?
    [ ] Zeps working?
    [ ] Right click to move bunches of items into bank quickly work?
    [ ] Self Play to working?
    [ ] Lan play to local internal IP working (or not applicable)?
    [ ] Internet play from Public external passthrough IP working (or not applicable)?
    [ ] Log out in the middle of kill quest and counters are retained correctly? (Ascent bug mostly)
    [ ] Caster Mobs casting spells?
    [ ] Most high level instances appear to be working as expected? If not list the bugged ones.
    [ ] Fishing works? (Ascent bug mostly again)
    [ ] Flight paths working?
    [ ] Crafting works?
    [ ] Hunters tame pets, keep pet by feeding, train pets (give pet growl 2/3/4? learn ‘call pet’)?
    [ ] Warlock quest to get imp and other pets working?
    [ ] Paladin quest to learn rez working?
    [ ] Rogue Druid Stealth working acceptably? Do mobs not see you as they should?
    [ ] Mangosd.exe crashes?
    [ ] Warrior improved mortal strike does not bring the cooldown to 5 seconds.
    [ ] Improved intercept also does not remove the 10 seconds from the cooldown.
    [ ] unknown spell id spam in mangosd?
    [ ] The talent tactical mastery does not keep rage when switching to other stance but defensive.
    [ ] Hunters traps not set in front but under him so if you are meleeing you need step back after?
    [ ] Druid morph shaprshifts working and providing the proper abilities (stealth/armor so on)?

  16. Like several others i’m having a problem with server login. Password & connection appear to be working fine, but once it hits the character list it says “Logging into Game server” then eventually goes back to the realm list. Having used uTorrent for several years I know how to port forward, but it does not help. It happens when trying to login on the server and from remote machines. It appears to be totally random as it worked on and off yesterday. Please help :S!
