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!

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

  1. @john the Novo installer installs everything … i mean u dont need no mysql , apache or other suthch , and it uses them so u dont have to use them manualy , u can modify the .confs and all but yea basicly its a precompiled pack for using … and uninstall is as same as install , it works , and deletes everything
    I do belive that oatmans server will be a kick ass server the(Rev 2)

    Everyday i come here to see :), ill wait for it :P

  2. @Alar: Thanks for the link but I dont want to use any installers for it. I dont trust them.
    I prefer just uncompressing the mangos archive to a dir and setting up everything myself.
    Have you tried the ascent thing?

  3. hmm so far the Novo seems now allright the german quest fixes are done and the looting is also perfect , but still waiting for Oatmans rev 2 :)

    keep up the good work :)

  4. @john

    u mean the Novo thingie? the chest is crappi there to … looting is misreble … and the worst thing is the german quests :S

  5. @oatman
    Can’t wait for your tests to finnish, oatman. I ve tried usign the roadmin’s release but it seems there are problems with the database as well as a few issues with the ui itself (eg i cant loot anything from chests and such). Also some quests are in German lol.
    Keep it up mate.
    Thanks.

  6. Two things:

    1. I have 0004331.map , but it isn’t being read! What do i do?

    2. When I try and download my maps it gives messages saying “unhandled map chunk (10- digit number)”

  7. WAIT! It wasnt the vmaps! It was the maps. I got all the vmaps in w/o a problem and now i am missing map 0004331 (according to the mangosd MS-DOS browser, it is non-existant in my datadir).
    How do I get that specific file? I am redownloading right now but i dunno if itll work

  8. So i found the problem in my downloading…

    Extracting vmaps\571_Icecrown_Citadel_Exterior_0000016.vmap Error: CRC mismatch in file “vmaps\571_Icecrown_Citadel_Exterior_0000016.vmap” in the archive “C:\Documents and Settings\Evan Coleman\Local Settings\Temp\vmaps.rar”

    When i downloaded the winzip version of VMaps t gave me this error. How do i fix it?

  9. OK – so I tried using the emu extractor Linux gave me. It doesn’t work. Every time I install it it gives me an error report. What should I do now?

  10. Linux – the Datadir is correct. But I used that sole link and not the emu version. Should I use the emu version? I have tried from that and it won’t download… ever.

    UGH

  11. Evan make sure In the Config Files you have it set to point were the dbc\maps\vmaps are making sure all 3 are in the same folder. example
    datadir:c:\mangos\data (that means you have all the dbc\maps\vmaps under that location) and it will work so double check the config file containing the text for were to tell it to point

  12. And I don’t quite understand what to edit as well in mangosd.conf and realmd.conf. Hoow do you:

    #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).

    – Replace wotlk_realmd, wotlk_world, wotlk_characters to point to the correct database name that is used on the installation process
