Oatmans’ Wrath of the Lich King Release! Revision:1

Well its finally here! Sorry that it took me about two months to finally get around to making it but our first Wrath of the Lich King Server is now here and supports Revision: 8788 of the WotLK Beta Client! This release operates on top of the MaNGOS Kernel using the UDB Database. With about 3,585 lines of code added into the MaNGOS Core Wrath of the Lich King is now officially supported into the Reaper-X Family and Discussion Board!

Download Link / Mirror:

Installation Instruction:

1. Run Oatmans’ WotLK Installer.bat from Oatman’s WotLK Database directory and continue with the installation until finished
2. Edit Mangosd.conf and Realmd.conf especially at below parts to point to the correct database name using your mysql password and username:

Note:

– Replace wotlk_usr to your mysql username
– Replace mangos to your mysql password
– Replace wotlk_realmd, wotlk_world, wotlk_characters to point to the correct database name that is used on the installation process
– Replace Datadir to the full path of your extracted DBC files and maps files from WOTLK (if you put the dbc directory and maps in the same directory of mangos, then there’s no need for you to change it)

Mangosd.conf

LoginDatabaseInfo     = “127.0.0.1;3306;wotlk_usr;mangos;wotlk_realmd”
WorldDatabaseInfo     = “127.0.0.1;3306;wotlk_usr;mangos;wotlk_world”
CharacterDatabaseInfo = “127.0.0.1;3306;wotlk_usr;mangos;wotlk_characters”

DataDir = “.”

Realmd.conf

LoginDatabaseInfo = “127.0.0.1;3306;wotlk_usr;mangos;wotlk_realmd”

Other Notes (thanks to LoLz Guy):

#1 To run mangos.exe you have to edit mangos.conf and delete some spaces (if there are too many) or other things that dont fit there…

#2 To make your databases work you have to use a mysql gui program (like navicat or sqlyog) and execute batch files to characters and realmd tabs.

#3 To make a Death Knight you have to manually edit the database (using navicat sqlyog or sometjing like that) and in the realmd in account table change your accounts “tbc” thingie from 0 to 2 or from 1 to 2 (I couldn’t do it in mangos.exe commands, as it was blocked or something).

BTW the Death Knight class starts at the race start place, has no abilities, and there is NO WOTLK CONTENT AT ALL…

Important Note from Oatman:

Currently this repack doesn’t have any NPC’s on Northrend although he (Oatman) said that he’ll add NPC’s later on the next revision (Revision 2) and probably some other things as well :) … and as he said before on the comment area, he is currently busy with various things as well and so he sent me the download link yesterday via email

    Don’t you live in a different country? o_0 Maybe you should try picking a different pyramid to test your connection, one closer to you.

  2. See I have an ok internet connection
    439 dl
    98 ul
    But I’m an Australian, and that is to Adelaide.
    Do somewhere like Washington DC I get
    128 dl
    129 ul (for some strange reason)

    Anyway, any ideas to when the first download will be available?

  3. @Reaper-X

    man i understand your pain…
    mine is the same…

    download 152
    upload 140

    but during the test the weather was nice…

    Since you guys posting about your connection speed, i’d like to show you my connection speed too :D

    btw since i didnt received any personal url like you guys, i just took a screenshot of the test manually

    p.s the first result is just too bad so i tested it again :P

    my first test :

    – download: 88 kbps
    – upload: 14 kbps

  5. @FaTe,

    As Samories said, fast internet connections here in Sweden is dirt cheap.
    The sad thing though is that my ISP do not look kindly to hosting of servers on these residential connections.
    I do run a Reaper-X server for the members of my guild, just for fun and machinima creations.

    I cant wait for the WotLK version :)

  6. i can offer links to downloads and host the files on my server as well, any mirror is faster then the free sites

  7. @ Oatman

    If you would like a host for your repacks, I can support reaper-x and let people download from my server. It’s way faster than those free hosts.

  8. Well Samories when our server comes online to the public you’d for sure be a GM on it since you obviously have experiance with yours.. :P

    Also obviously #FaTe would..

  9. @FaTe

    Holy (I wont use any bad words :P ) man! Thats a nice internet speed! You either pay ALOT or have it on a rack!

  10. @Oatman

    I have a question, the problem with alot of ppl here me included is we’re itching to know when the server software is going to be released etc etc, I was wondering would it be possible to let us know how far you’ve got with it, till your happy enough to release it, i dunno just a quick update with like 70% complete 80% complete etc etc, was just thinking it wouldn’t need you to give a 12 page essay on what needs to be done b4 its ready, all i’m thinking is it’ll take 30 secs if that just to say how far you’ve got, it’ll put alot of ppl at ease i’m thinking.

    Thanks dude,

    Bav

  11. btw guys, is it best they hurry up and release an incomplete package (like the first Arcane-Fire), or just be patient and wait for a solid release?
    Give Oatman a chance, he doesn’t just do this you know…

  12. Heya Oatman.
    I was having a read about some of the current releases of WotLK, are you able to elaborate on what features will be available in this release?
    I’ve seen a lots that don’t have NPC’s, no high riding skills and many other things.
    How much won’t we be able to do on this first release?
    (btw, not complaining, just curious, I still can’t wait to get my ass over there).
    Also, there are rumors that you will need dbc from a previous version and maps from the current version. Any idea on this?

  13. Come on you guys. We’re dieing with boredism. I’m downloading the beta. What more can you ask from us? Lol. Take your time, but do hurry up. (What an oxymoron)
