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

Reaper Mangos 5116 Has been released, so grab the new one :)

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.

Jared ReaperMangos Version of Menu

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

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 = “127.0.0.1;3306;ROOT;PASSWORD;realmd”
WorldDatabaseInfo = “127.0.0.1;3306;ROOT;PASSWORD;mangos”
CharacterDatabaseInfo = “127.0.0.1;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. I get an error that reads mysql is not recognized as an internal or external command, orperal program or batch file

    whats that mean and how do I fix it ?

  2. Ok, i’m fairly new to this private server thing and am still trying to set one up for the first time. So after fighting with this for a few hours I’m fairly sure that there are a couple steps that aren’t in this guide. Could somebody please lend me some help?

  3. Ok.. i have mysql running, but my prob is that there are no tables in the databases for mangos to use.. where do i get these tables?

  4. when running Mangosd.exe I get a message saying “Check existing of map file ‘./maps/0004331.map’: not exist!
    Correct *.map files not found in path ‘./maps’ or *.vmap/*vmdir files in ‘./vmaps’. Please place *.map/*.vmap/*.vmdir files in appropriate directories or correct the DataDir value in the mangosd.config file.”
    What am I doing wrong?

  5. HEYA, IF THERE IS A CHANCE, I WOULD LIKE TO HELPED, PPPLLLZ, SRY FOR USING CAPOS, JUST THAT THIS WAY IM SURE U WILL SEE ME….IS THERE ANY WAY TO SEND THE SERVER ONLINE??
    if yess then please just tell me what to do…thanks

  6. Trying to download at the moment, but i need to dl the Vmaps for EU, but the problem is that they are on rapidshare, which can give you a 100 min download cooldown, and the map is 7 files >.<, would be awesome if you could upload it as one big file or to some other website

  7. # anton

    from your error message it seems that you didn’t configure the datadir in mangosd.conf to point to the correct location ;)

    btw try using the new Reaper Mangos 5225 instead of this version

    # Gakke

    It looks to me that you’re having problem with your mysql installation, could you tell me what is your Operating system and your mysql version?

  8. I got exact same error

  9. Okay, I got the server running. it runs really good, just one problem; when I shut the server down and tries to start it again it says:

    “could not connect to MySQL database at 127.0.0.1; Can’t connect to MySQL server on 127.0.0.1 (10061)

    Cannot connect to world database 127.0.0.1;3306;root;yes;mangos”

    so I have to reinstall MySQL every time I shut the server down, which sucks… anyone who knows the problem?

  10. When I try to start Mangosd and realmd it just says:
    could not connect to MySQL database at 127.0.0.1; Can’t connect to MySQL server on 127.0.0.1 (10061)

    Cannot connect to world database 127.0.0.1;3306;mangos;mangos;mangos

  11. hello when i run mangosd there stand check existing of map files c/spil/wow/data/maps/0004331.map not exist! what shall i do ?? plz help

  12. okay..so I’m soooo confused.
    I ahve the extracting XXXXXXX.map errerors..and when geting the ad.exe I cna’t find anywhere extract-maps.exe it would be awesome if you would lnk thopse as a notice somewhere on the extracting tuts… because i can’t find it in the release…al there is is a .bat file no Tools file

  13. #Blizzard

    i see what you meant now and what i know about portal is

    .lookup object portal

    .addgo (selected portal)

    but it is limited it only bring up shattrath portal to cap cities

    but now im serching on how to make my own gameobjects if any could help me on that…

    im looking to make a locked door that need a key that ill create (i need to find how to either) and that the door isnt lockpickable
    if any could help on that one id like

  14. I have version 2.3.0……Is this list of to do’s going to make it ver. 2.3.3 ? Or do I have to hunt for ver. 2.3.2 first, theeenn use this to up date it?

  15. #santhos

    well that command is to teleport a player to a place.but what i need is to create a portal to a place, or to make an npc that will tele you to an place.how can i make that ?

  16. #blizzard

    to create a portal you must enter the right command in game (with gm or admin level account aswell) and you should get the portal
    but to port someone i noticed a command named .name tele (teleport the player to selected area(ex. .name tele santhos gmisland))it also useful but this just if your friend want to go somewhere but hes not gm…

    and and for the error i got i solved it… mysql 4.1 DOESNT work you must have 5.0 and a useful program (for you rich boys or hackers) sqlyog it allows to open mysql db..it helped me to figure out what was wrong (any version works)

    to end my post ill say as the others… nice creation dont stop working on it, ascent is very far away from you..thanks

  17. How does one remove traces of using a private server so that one can connect back to the real Blizzard servers?

    Looking for more technical data than just “modify the .wtf folder”. There are registry entries, etc. as well as concerns over Warden and it’s activities.
    Much thanks,
    Hoa

  18. thx for telling me.

    dbc files or db files cause dbc are files that you extract from World of Warcraft and db are the 4 thing that comes with the server install (mangos,characters,realmd,scriptdev2(all .sql))
