Reaper Mangos 5116 with Scriptdev2 247 – Easy WoW Private Server compatible with WoW 2.3.3

This is the old version, get the new Reaper Mangos 5225 instead

Another update for Reaper Mangos, because mangos has officially support the 2.3.3 client of WoW … which means in order to use this, you’ll need to update your old 2.3.2 version into 2.3.3 because the previous (2.3.2) version is no longer supported … and if you still use the old client you’ll be unable to login :)

Also because it seems that some people want to switch database just like the old release of Reaper Mangos, i’ve decided to include the Silvermoon Database once again, which means you can switch between UDB and PSDB to test which one fit best for you ;)

And without further ado, here’s how to use it :

Download Reaper Mangos :

Optional :

WoW 2.3.3 enUS DBC

Fresh Installation :

1. Read my post on how to install Reaper Mangos from scratch (fresh installation) (i’m sorry the screenshots a little bit old, i’ll update it later) :)

2. If you plan on activating / enabling the Auction House Bot, you can use the Reaper-X-Mangos to get your character GUID and ID, read below for more info on how to activate auction house bot :)

Note: Vmaps isn’t enabled by default even if you’re using the Reaper-X-Mangos.exe to edit your configuration files because some people have problem with VMaps and in order to enable it you need to open mangosd.conf and replace :

vmap.enableLOS = 0
vmap.enableHeight = 0

to

vmap.enableLOS = 1
vmap.enableHeight = 1

To those who are upgrading from the 5082 version here are the steps :

1. Create a backup just in case something goes wrong and copy / move the backup file somewhere

2. Run the reaper-x-upgrade in Upgrade directory to upgrade your character table with the new SQL for GuildBank

3. Now create a backup again so your character backup is using the new char table and don’t run the upgrader again

4. And finally you can choose between Silvermoon database and UDB ;)

Note : If you have already extracted DBC, VMaps, and maps from wow 2.3.3 you don’t need to re-extract it again, but if you’re still using the old DBC from WoW 2.3.2 then you’ll need to re-extract the DBC Files only because the only changed is in the DBC files

Also finally, currently i’m having a big problem and that’s because … the area where i lived got flooded once again (i just hope this time the waters doesn’t get inside my house though like what is happening on February last year / 2007) or else i’d have to evacuate somewhere

So if you have posted comment / have sent me an email message and i didn’t respond, i’d like to apologize because of the current situation i’m facing now … for more info about this, you can try searching for Jakarta Floods 2008 using Google or your favorite search engine

Comment?

  2. Reaper, I’m in the army about to leave for Iraq and I was wondering if you could mail me a .zip file with everything I need to start a server for my friends in Iraq. Plz let me know. Thank you.

    btw im really sorry for flood

  5. the error message aint full in the upper post here the full version

    ERROR 1045 Access denied for user `mangos`@`localhost`

  6. hello im trying tu update my server from 5085 to 5116 but i get that error on the update program

    Performing Upgrade:
    ERROR 1045 Access denied for user `mangos`@`localhost`
    ERROR 1045 Access denied for user `mangos`@`localhost`

    Done
    If you see any error message just let me know

    press any key to continue

    how can i get that problem off…

    btw my MySQL is version 5.0 and my username is Root not Mangos (maybe thats the problem and if it is how do i change mangos to root?)

    thx again… on all emu server we tried (me n friends) you the most stable and with the less bugs!!!

  7. i have install all patches.. And the only thing i ebelive missing is a copy of Burning Crusader Expanson

    Ah if you don’t have Burning Crusade expansion installed, you can open mangosd.conf directly and change Expansion = 1 to Expansion = 0

    and btw this is the old version, the new version is at 5225 :)

  8. Ok i believe i followed every single details in installing Mangos Easy Server 2.3.3 Only problem am getting is when extracting the vmaps… When i extrated the first time it give me the following folders… (Maps) (Vmaps) (DBC) now the only thing i noticed is that the vmaps folder is empty after extraction and also i beleiev after looking at the log some files are still missing from the maps… So when ever i run the mangosd.exe i believe that’s the name i cannot create an account…The following code below is the exact error i get when running….

    I have place the vmaps/map/dbc into C:\WoW\data and yet i still get this error. Not sure why… Oh another thing my World of Warcraft was a fresh copy from the server downloaded… Took me 5 hrs to download does this has anything to do with it not sure if security reason also i have install all patches.. And the only thing i ebelive missing is a copy of Burning Crusader Expanson … My wow folder uses 6.5 gigs and not the computer i have setup the mysql and world of warcraft has no internet connection… I believe the mysql data base on the pc should auto log me cause it’s on the same server if not.. Please help me otherwise.. I did everything ok.. Setup mysql…ect with no problems.. I now need futher help..

    Thanks..

  9. @ informative
    in the magosd.config file there use to be datadir=
    in my mangosd.config file there is no listed anywere in the file as shown in previous posting. All I have is logsdir=

    your mangosd.config actually has the below mine does not.

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

    This is wierd I know. I’ll try A repair with wow and fresh install mangos 5116 and see if that fixes the problem.

    thanks,
    Martian

  10. @Martian: I don’t know what you mean there is no datadir. I still have one. The logs are for logging. My data dir (which also doesn’t include space in the path name – not by coincidence) looks like this. Inside the C:\mangos\data folder you would find my DBC MAPS and VMAPS folders. If I were to put my MySQL data on the C: it would probably be there too but I opted to put that on a different drive for speed and to avoid writing so much to the C: drive.

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

    # Logs directory setting.
    # Important: Logs dir must exists, or all logs be disable
    # Default: “” – no log directory prefix, if used log names isn’t absolute path then logs will be stored in current directory for run program.
    LogsDir = “Logs”

  11. Ok here is what my mangosd.config looks like. The old one (5082) had the DATADIR=.
    This is 5116 and there is logsdir=, but NO DATADIR=. So were does it go? I ran the upgrade and got no errors. Now I am back to getting error 0004331.map does not exist. I tried the trick I did to get 5082 to work by changing expansion=0. That fixed the problem with 5082, but will not work with 5116. I need to know were to put DATADIR=

    # MaNGOS Configuration file
    ConfVersion=2007103101

    # RealmID must match the realmlist
    RealmID = 1

    # 0 NORMAL 1 PVP 4 NORMAL 6 RP 8 RPPVP
    # and also custom type: 16 FFA_PVP (free for all pvp mode like arena PvP in all zones except rest activated places and sanctuaries)
    GameType = 1

    # Allow server use expansion content
    # 0 (not check expansion maps existence, not allow wisit its, not allow create new race characters, ignore account expansion setting)
    # Default: 1 (check expansion maps existence, and if client support expansion and account have expansion setting then allow visit expansion maps, allow create new races character)
    Expansion = 0

    # Logs directory setting.
    # Important: Logs dir must exists, or all logs be disable
    # Default: “” – no log directory prefix, if used log names isn’t absolute path then logs will be stored in current directory for run program.
    LogsDir = “”

  12. #johann: the level 55+ aggro IMP bug in the newb areas is a bug in the release. I just selected the IMP and typed

    .delete

    No more imp. I think GTA mentioned a proper fix to change their faction or something.

  13. sorry but i dont really understand u, u mean IN the world of warcraft map or a new map named WoW?,
    i made now C:\WoW\data ,and i put there the maps, but i get a error for that to and in my installdir world of warcraft like C:\World of Warcraft\data\
    i cant put there the maps cause i see there something like expansion.mpq and some other things, and already tried that to, :( ,

    (im really noob at this, and its hard for me to understand cause im not good at english) ;)

  14. # Dflame

    It seems that you’re using the new 5225 version based from your description

    and actually that problem was caused because there’s space at your data directory location (i’ll fix this on the next version, i’m really sorry for this)

    as for the solution (for this problem), you need to create a new directory that doesnt contain space, for example

    C:\WoW\data

    and place the DBC directory, VMaps directory and Maps directory inside C:\WoW\data :)

  15. Hi , i have 1 one question,
    i run reaper-x-mangos , well by choosing i chose 4 ,

    Where is your Datadir Located?

    The system cannot find the given up path.
    DBC Directory doesnt exist make sure to put/copy/move the DBC directory into c: \ Program Files\World or Warcraft\Data\Mangos Maps

    Press any key to continue. . .

    but if i go to that map, i see dbc standing there :S , someone knows what’s the problem is?

  16. # Gta

    When you are tellig me to edit my windows host file what must i look for?
    Can you give more info about that?

    Regards, Dex.

  17. Hey Guys – this site rocks. I carefully went through the instructions on setting up my first private wow server and all went smoothly. I’m using Hamachi on a private vpn so that I don’t have to worry about dynamic IPs changing the realmlist info.

    Anyway – I do have an issue… when a new character starts out in the world regardless of faction, the pets of any friendly people are hostile! like the warlock trainers – you get nearby and the imps just go BOOM HEADSHOT and it’s all over. Anyone else see this and know a possible cause?

  18. @Sprite
    I dont see anyone bitching here, they are asking questions because they simply overlooked something. For most, this is there first time. And a validation error does NOT need a wow repair and a missing vmap does not require a full re-install. A validation error has to do with the client not being the right version with the repack version and the Vmap error Has issuses with missing files normally due to the data-dir missing or poiting to the wrong location. Giving misleading information will even confuse them anymore. Lets try to help these people out bescides “Read the Guide” Im sure they did, thats why there asking questions.

  19. @GTA

    Thanks! C++ I can do!

    I just discovered the ScriptDev2 forums and they are a wealth of knowledge! Anyone wanting to take on some of the scripting would do well to take a look at http:\www.scriptdev2.com

  20. @martian

    No you cannot on this release use the old config files. They are differtant. But you will have to edit your new ones. Your data dir is not set to the correct path for your maps. thats what the error is. Open up both conf files and see how it was done on the original one. Mangosd.conf file. look here

    # Data directory setting.
    # Important: DataDir needs to be quoted, as it is a string which may
    # contain space characters.
    DataDir = “C:/reaper-x-easy-mangos/data”

    Make sure you put all your stuff in the data folder and point to it. Like your Vmaps,maps and DBC files. now it should work with no problems.
