Windows Kit


Recommended Posts

Because I'm a lazy git, and I like things working consistently, so I wrote a script that does as much as can be "done" in a standard order...

It makes the directories, does GIT to get the source, compiles everything, created the databases, loads them from the source as well...

One reason I did this was because I saw that the documentation (even for windows) mentioned using the mysql_import tool (doesn't work in windows).

I use Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit, and have Visual Studio (real, not express) so certain things work.

My minor questions are :

  • What are the OTHER github repositories? I see a mangos-zero and a mangos-one but can't find mangos development or mangos-master URLs.
  • Should I be linking in or using scriptdev from them OR using the one below (git://github.com/mangos-zero/scriptdev0.git)
  • How do I detect what database "updates" to load? Is it bad to re-apply them all?
  • Not related to the script and because I'm uber-new to this.. what clients (like 3.3.5, build xxxx) are mangos-zero for, and mangos-one (master and dev) too?

I plan on making the drive and path fully variable-dependent (configurable).

So here is what I've got :

I don't know what you wan't do reach. What should your WoWEmu contain? Because of several developement branches you can choose from some repository's.

You can use :

mangos-zero if you want the developement for 1.12.1

mangos-one if you want the developement for TBC

mangos if you want the developement for WOTLK

mangos-400 and further on mangos-434 if you want the developement for Cata

mangos-500 if you want the developement for MoP

Additional you can choose a ScriptEngine:

Scriptdev2 as example for mangos

Additional you can choose a Database that fits:


When you build your developement WoWEmu from zero, over and over again, your script needs only to:

clone git repository's

compile mangos and scripts

clear the database and reinstall the basic sql statements from mangos and from scripts

The sql updates are only nessesary if you want to update your existed database.

Be aware that this is only a simple quess from me what you might want. If you want automated update your WowEmu with:

source code repository's, database updates, scripts, translation

your script need a lot of more knowledge, sure.

I hope that my comment leads to more detailed developement and not to a "one click installer"

LP, that's precisely what I wanted. Thanks bunches.

I will try 335 client WOTLK for today and see what's going on.

I'm not trying to make an actual installer. It's just that when testing and debugging, it's best to "plan the work and work the plan" and part of the plan is to make sure your environs is the same (to the best of my ability) each time.

My script is, in part, for a base for something I saw one of the people ask for regarding testing on Windows. I think that I can muck with the script and my various virtual-machine instances of Windows XP (pro, 32 and 64 bit), Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and others.

Since I have a pre-Mangos-installation snapshot for those virtual-machines, I can just run the script and see how they handle roll-outs.

I love doing actual coding, but I am totally not even up on the basics of the project's architecture yet, so I can at least offer to help with roll-out windows-platform testing.

And with a reasonably solid script, I can test across 6 windows versions within 30 minutes (less, but I want to see if real visual-studio and visual-studio express are both ok).

After that I want to write some management utils or get my hands dirty with whatever is otherwise needed.
