How to make your own WOW private server TBC 2.0.12


now this is mutch more easy then you think.. follow the guide and have your own server in less then 10-15 min..


1. Requirements:


- first of all you must have game client version 2.0.12 enGB or enUS PROPERLY installed!!! get the patches here if u dont got em

http://www.wowfiles.org/ if that one is down (it sometimes is) try this one http://a.wirebrain.de/wow/


- Microsoft .NET framework 1.1 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en


framework 2.0 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en


and framework 3.0 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en



- MaNGOS server (TBC)- download here http://www.sendspace.com/file/j6hxmq



- MaNGOS database (TBC) - http://sdb.unix7.net/forums/ (you must log in on the forum to get it..)

to make this guide very easy ill save you the time to search for it at the forum.. http://sdb.unix7.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=7055


- Mangos tools are optional but good to have (26M - SQLyog, Minimanager - http://www.sendspace.com/file/zn2l2t



- An to the last Mysql server 5.0 http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html



Now make a new folder and put the files you downloaded in it.. it should be: mangos database,mangosserver,Mysql server and mangos tools in the folder... these files you should keep even when your done if you need to uinstall everything (that happens when you try to put other stuff in later that dont work and fucks it up for you when you start your server... backup is good..) the framework downloads you just install and trow away..


and one last thing... i did think most did know this but you need a program to open rar files... winace is a good one..


2. Installation:


(now also in video) ----->


1 - Launch the MySQL installation application. (Setup.exe)

When prompted, select "Typical" for setup type.

When prompted, select "Skip Sign-Up".

When install is complete you will be given the option to "Configure the MySQL Server Now". Make sure this is checked, then press finish.

When prompted, select "Standard Configuration"

When prompted, place a check in "Install as Windows Service" and "Launch the MySQL Server Automatically". Service name should be changed to "root"

When prompted select "Modify Security Settings". In the two empty dialog boxes, type in the password "mangos"

(If you plan on administering your MySQL instance from a remote machine, then select "Enable root access from remote machines". If you don't know if you need this, then do not select it.)


2 - now install mangos tools


3 - install MaNGOS server wich will automatically extract all needed data, so it will be running for ~ 10 minutes!


4 - copy MaNGOS database SDB.SQL to C:/MANGOS/SQL/


5 - Now go into C:/Mangos/tools and you will find SQLog.exe push it and follow the wizard


- now you should have gotten a shortcut on the desktop.. push it.. then conect.. right click on MANGOS database in SQLyog, ( u then select IMPORT BATCH FILE and select SDB.SQL from C:/MANGOS/SQL/ and import it (just click OK) Execute


6 - Extract map files (not all need too do this)



- Place ad.exe into. ("C:\World of Warcraft") it might be in C/mangos or allready in C:\World of Warcraft

Create a subdirectory called 'maps'. ("C:\World of Warcraft\maps")

Launch ad.exe. This will begin the extraction of map files. (This can take a long time depending on your system.)

When ad.exe has finished, copy the folder "C:\World of Warcraft\maps" and place it in your ManGOS server directory ("C:\MaNGOS"). So you should now have a "C:\MaNGOS\maps" directory containing numerous (2400+) .map files.



- now you can give yourself a clap on the shoulder.. its only the easy stuff left now


- if you have old database lower than version 3500 then you have to import sql files from C:/MANGOS/SQL/UPDATES/


7. Config files

- configure MANGOS.CONF & REALMD.CONF for your needs, but they are already configured for default system (you can change exp,highest level and gold rate in the mangos.conf after your need and mutch more just save the file when you are done....but no need for that yet..)


8. Accounts

- you make an account by going into SQLyog then push on realmd (leftside) now you got a list.. then push account now

push table data (lower right side) put in username,password after your own wish and gm level (3 is good)

here you also put an 1 where it says tbc if you want to be able to enter outland now push the save button (the littel disk.. lol..) to change the realm name push realmlist in realmd.. now change the name and save


9. Starting server

- click MaNGOS restarter on your desktop!

now if you did all this should here a beep when the server is ready.. (takes 5-10 sec after you push the desktop ikon)

when you here the beep you are done ;D


dont use the desktop shortcut by the way... use wow.exe in your wow folder.. also in your wow folder you got a file called realmlist.wtf open it with word or something and

change it to: set realmlist


now log in to your account by typing the accountname/password you picked...


You are now ready to rule your world


if this guide did help you like it should you may rep me for it(the green arrowup)

let me know what you think.. ;D did i miss something pls tell.. hope you did enjoy reading it anyway...

    • We have dates for Open Beta Testing and Official launch date set in stone! Open Beta Testing: 2023-02-17 GMT-3 19:00 OFFICIAL Launch: 2023-02-24 GMT-3 19:00 Until then we are going to be working on the server, balancing, checking a lot of stuff and making sure everything is perfectly well set for OBT and especially official launch. In upcoming days we will finalize marketing campaign that will take effect in facebook/google ads, forum banners, pinned topics and such. Website will be also reworked to make it a bit less complicated and with less information than it is now. Until OBT we will be sharing sneak peaks so the community can take a look at what they can expect, won't give the full picture as that wouldn't be interesting Thank you everyone for supporting the project and continuing to do so, we can promise that you won't bet bored as we will be bringing a lot of stuff weekly to the players! Little sneak peak of sophisticated quest system where you will be able to get rewards for completing tasks:
    • Impossible to combine them just in xml, they have different target and skill types. But yeah, you can make it to work like you want, make a new skilltype or modify existing one.

    • Hello.  I added this on aCis401 but i found some serious problems on the code. First of all i updated all sql queries and i removed the character_memo_alt (its useless) and instead i saved everything in character_memo. All custom edits on Gameclient.java caused a serious problem (WARNING on GS) when a players was logging out. I found this part useless too so i removed it. Then i removed all Tournament arenas and OutOfZoneTask (i found them useless too because all games are instanced). Another bug is :when a team is on countdown to port in, for those 10 seconds was able to register on another game. That caused serious issues if another team join the Q and could port your team on next game before you finish the active one. And last bug is with the pets. Instance is not handled upon teleport in arena so enemies cannot kill your pet. I fixed more things for sure but i don't remember something else big.    Its a very good system if you can manage to fix/update. I don't recommend it for live server as it is.   Keep up.
