It looks like you havent extracted the vmaps from your client.

Have you read the log yourself?

It tells you what you have to do.

another option is to install git bash

go to the

server\\contrib\\extractor_binary

copy all those files to the client folder

open git bash (right click anywhere in the folder and select git bash)

and run "extractresources.sh"

should do the whole thing for you - note will take some time.. i have a quad core 8gb ram and it does take a bit.

ok... first off.... ad.exe doesn't create the vmaps

if you look at the folder "server\\contrib\\extractor_binary"

Copy all of these into you WOW folder

now if you have a git shell (or git bash as above), try running Extract_resources.sh now

Isn't this the wrong thread for this? Either way, this isn't hard. You simply do this:

  • Place ad.exe, vmapExtractor.exe, and vmap_Assembler.exe in your Lich King folder
  • Open a command prompt in your Lich King folder. You can do this in Windows 7 by holding the left shift key, right-clicking on your Lich King folder, and choosing "Open command window here"
  • Type ad.exe, press enter, and wait for it to finish
  • Type vmapExtractor.exe, press enter, and wait for it to finish
  • Type mkdir vmaps and press enter
  • Type vmap_assembler.exe buildings vmaps, press enter, and let it finish
  • Once it finishes you may close the command window

You will now have your dbc, maps, and vmaps folders with the correct data in them. Copy them into your server folder in Windows or transfer them to you Linux server and place them in the MaNGOS installation directory there. You may now start your server.

Isn't there a way to let the extractor binarys create a log file?

It took you 1 second to do this two processes. I will assume that the buildings file is empty too or you did populate it before you make this attempt.

You must have four new files in the WoW directory after everything is done properly (dbc, mmaps, vmaps, buildings.)

first check if buildings file is empty or not.

If empty or dose not exist you must create it. just create New file then rename to buildings inside your WoW directory.

then u must specify the right path to your DATA file which is inside your World Of Warcraft directory to the vmapExtractor.exe

How to:

open your WoW directory, find the DATA file right click and open properties in the Target: box copy the text.

Then go back to your WoW directory just right click on your vmapExtractor.exe and create shortcut to your desktop.

Then go to your desktop right click on the shortcut open the properties in the Target: (there is already text there do not delete or change it just add at the end of it) -d (and right click, then paste) in the target path it should look something like this:

example: "C:\\Games\\Worold of Warcraft\\vmapExtractor.exe" -d "C:\\Games\\World of Warcraft\\DATA"

apply then close/OK.

Now run vmapExtractor.exe from the shortcut. You must wait to finish the extraction.

Now you must have buildings file full.

Go to your WoW directory again find the vmap_assembler.exe

right click on it and run Git Bash or open with command promote and type: vmap_assembler.exe buildings vmaps

press enter.

Now wait the assembler to finish.

...you should now have all four files full just copy them were you have compiled your server.

You guys may be having all of this trouble due to layers of complexity. Why the heck are we using git/bash to do this? Batch files have been around for eons, and those files are Windows binaries. Here, use this batch file.

@echo off
ad.exe
vmapExtractor.exe
mkdir vmaps
vmap_assembler.exe buildings vmaps
pause

Just paste that code into a new file in Notepad, save it as a batch file (.bat extension) in your WoW client folder, and double-click it.

Sending VMAPS, MMAPS, DBC's is illegal

For now, until you can get a client that works, you can always switch off vmaps in the mangos.conf file

I've just had a thought.... do you have MOP installed elsewhere on your pc ?

ok.... that may be it.... try this

1) Open up a command prompt and navigate to the WOW folder you want to extract from

2) type vmapextractor.exe -d "W:\\World of Warcraft\\Data"

- You will need to change the path to the match your installation

This should run for you now !

I have just tried it here and it works for me for all five versions of wow - I have the latest version is properly installed so to extract any other versions - I have to use the -d option
