Goofy question (or two)


Recommended Posts

Hello. I hope I don't get flamed for asking this, but I've tried searching and haven't been successful in finding anyone with similar problems, so...first a little background, then the question(s).

I've used mangos before, in fact I've had a vanilla server running smoothly for awhile now (and I've been slowly but surely learning the process of running a server, correcting issues, etc), so I sort of have a clue what I am doing. I recently decided to try and upgrade to TBC 2.4.3 and utilized the mangos-one github, the unifieddb rev 404 v0.10.5 to try and upgrade my server. However, I've run into a couple of issues, and I am unsure of what may be causing them. I'm hoping someone might be able to assist me.

I have managed to get the server up and running, I even managed to import my characters from the vanilla client to the tbc client (although at the moment I have no idea how successful that endeavor was, explanation to follow).

When I try and log into my existing characters, it loads (although both characters are not where I left them, I left one in Orgrimmar, and one in Darnassus and atm they are in Booty Bay for some reason lol), and then wow errors out mentioning corrupted files in regard to humanfemale.m2, trollmale.m2 and draeneifemale.m2 (at least those are the only 3 thus far). Same problem exists when I try and create a new character.

In case I had this sort of issue, I created a new connection on sqlyog and essentially did what I could to create an "entirely new" server rather than corrupt the existing vanilla one.

I am fairly certain this is a fixable issue, but I'm not entirely sure where to begin.

The first question that popped into my mind was "should I have overwrote the existing server in an update rather than create an entirely new server or does it matter?" I cannot find anyone with an opinion on this matter (or perhaps I am searching the wrong terms on the forum), any thoughts?

The second question is...are the corrupted files mentioned above due to my installation/patching of wow or some sort of issue during the server creation process? I've been trying to decide where to begin on the fix...ie do I totally strip it and begin again fresh, and if so should I try and overwrite the original server or does it matter?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
