Step 7: Start services  screen -S realm -d -m ./realmd  screen -S mangos -d -m ./mangosd Step 8: Play the game  Update %WoWDir%\Data\enUS\realmlist.wtf   set realmlist <Server Hostname or IP Address>  Open the desktop client and log in.   USERNAME PASSWORD   ADMINISTRATOR ADMINISTRATOR   GAMEMASTER GAMEMASTER   MODERATOR MODERATOR   PLAYER PLAYER Optional Step 9: Add users  From the running mangos server instance>   account create <username> <password>   account set addon <username> #    (0 - Normal, 1 - The Burning Crusade, 2 - Lich King)
