Problem with maps and update

Recommended Posts

I'm getting the same error as creat91.

2011-12-14 02:27:58 MaNGOS/0.17.0-DEV (2011-12-12 22:32:11 Revision 11863 - c9d511abb70744ce10bbea724cf108417299a95f) for Win32 (little-endian) [world-daemon]

Running WoW client: 3.3.3 (11685)

Could that be my problem?

Or is it possible that my UDB is not updated to the highest patch? (because I really don't know how to do that, altrought I followed the guide )

Im also using an script to update the MaNGOS SQL files, so if that one works correctly, it shouldn't be a problem there.

Yesterday I tried run the MaNGOS server on my VPS. I have a little probleme with database/core <- don't know what. When I starting server in the next step I see this

ERROR:Map file '/home/mangos/mangos-server/bin/maps/0004331.map' is non-compatible version (outdated?). Please, create new using ad.exe program

What I must do? Update core to 3.3.5. 12340? I think this will resolve my problem but i don't know how do this. Can you write me how to step by step update MaNGOS?

My World of Warcraft version is 3.3.5. 12340 and MaNGOS is less.

1. Make sure your game client is at version

2. Compile the latest core, which can be found at Official MaNGOS Repository at Github.

3. Run ad.exe from the new core, which can be found in the ./contrib/extractor/ folder of the MaNGOS core source code.

4. Run makevmaps_SIMPLE.bat from the new core, which can be found in ./contrib/vmap_extract_assembler_bin/.

Make sure you place ad.exe and the files from vmap_extract_assembler_bin in your WoW installation folder.

Those steps should give you a current server with all the latest improvements and fixes.

Also, remember to [em]always[/em] start your client using Wow.exe, NOT Launcher.exe! The Launcher will automatically patch your client and you do not want this for a private server.

That means everyone who uses MaNGOS, has to patch his WoW client to 3.3.5a (12340)?

Simple answer is yes.

The long, technical answer is you can use any client version you want, but you must use a revision of MaNGOS that is compatible. Of course, you'll be using an older version of the core, an older vmaps, and enduring all the bugs that have since been fixed with newer revisions.

You could backport all the fixes, but that requires a good working knowledge of the core files and C++.

Well, I don't know nothing about the core files or C++, but I got it working now.

The thing is: I like learning/doing a lot of thing on my PC, including making/compiling private servers. (Ogame, RuneScape for example)

Half a year ago, I used repacks to see if I could get something out of it but I was wrong: everything was automated.

So now I started compiling MaNGOS and try things out. :)
