MangosZero maps, vmaps, dbc files


Recommended Posts

Hi! I wish my first post could be helpful rather than seeming desperate.... but I am having problems extracting files for a 1.12.1 server.

I ran ad.exe from within the "C:\\Program Files(x86)\\World of Warcraft\\" folder (a 1.12.1 installation), and from that I received a maps folder with 2429 files, and a dbc folder with 158 files. I'm assuming that's all I need as far as maps and dbc files go.

But I seem to be having a hard time getting any vmaps. I ran the makevmaps_SIMPLE.bat and the 'make vmaps.bat' files in the root WoW folder and I just get errors about there being no locales found. The version is vmapextract_v2.exe. Maybe this one doesn't work with 1.12.1? I'm not sure if that's the case.

Does anyone have any ideas or another version they think will be able to extract vmaps?

I just tried that, but same error. It says "Could not open data directory for reading... aborting", but the Data directory is right there, "C:\\World of Warcraft\\Data". I am running the .bat from "C:\\World of Warcraft". I notice that the moment I run the .bat files, I get a Windows 7 error telling me that "vmapextract_v2.exe has stopped working", and the only option from there is to "Close program".

I do notice however that my game folder and data folders show up as Read-Only in properties, so I thought maybe that is getting in the way.. but the read-only status keeps coming back the moment I give it write access.

I just figured it out for those having problems. I was using extractor tools I found linked on the internet (it seems not many people run 1.12 servers, so the only tools you can find are for TBC and up). I couldn't find where to get the tools needed, but realized they come packaged in the Mangoz-Zero server files in git. If you dig in the folders you find the proper ad.exe and vmapextract_v3 that you need.

Now all I need is an updated Mangoz-Zero walkthrough for Linux, and I'm set.
