You'll need a web server or an FTP server for them. Are you doing a private game server?

Are you sure that this is necessary for whatever you are trying to do?

When you want to experiment with setting up an updateserver and you don't want to use an external webspace you have to install a webserver on your local machine.

Are you sure that you really need to download the updates from localhost? What exactly do you want to archieve?

When you want to experiment with setting up an updateserver you could just get some free webspace from somewhere.

Please add the tmwart repo to the instructions in the first post, as it's slowly gaining better files to work from than tmwdata.

(BUMP, but this thread is getting linked to from other threads)

did you done step 3?
3. Tell TMW to ignore the updates and use the files in your new directory
To do so you have to start tmw with the additional command line parameters -u -d path/to/your/data/folder

Windows users can right-click on the tmw shortcut on their desktop and select Properties. In the field Target you find the path to your tmw executable in quotation marks. Add -u -d behind the quotation marks followed the folder where you cloned the git repository. It should now read something like that:
"D:\programs\The Mana World\tmw.exe" -u -d D:\tmw\data

Hey here's a teaser for ya. I am doing some map construction for a new city. Yes I am using tiled, Yes I have read the Wiki info, etc. I have set up a server on my host machine, and have tmwdata directory setup. My problem is this: How can I just drop the map file into the DIR and warp to it to look and test it. I do not want to do the whole unpacking, renaming, replacing, repacking, bit. Just want to drop the TMX file into the DIR and warp to it. Is this possible? Can it be done? If so, how?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can chime in and help! :D

At the moment this cannot be done in the way you describe it (easier content testing is planned for a later release though). You can do it in several ways, for example:

Variant A: Replace an existing map with the one you have created (either in the original data directory or in your customdata), the warps and monsters et cetera will be those of the original map unless you replace those files as well.

Variant B: Put your new map somewhere and add its location to the file <tmw-eathena-data-repo>/npc/scripts.conf

Then all you have to do is to warp to the map (e.g. to Hurnscald: @warp 009-1).
