Help running ManaServ on Cygwin

Post by FBSC » 30 Jan 2010, 22:37

Hello, I'm new here :)
I wanna run my Manaserv server on Cygwin, so I followed the instruction on the wiki.
I compiled everything, downloaded things from http://gitorious.org/tmwserv-data and symlinked.
Anyway, account and game server gives me errors about not-found files (items.xml in the case of account and maps.xml for the game server).
Can anyone help me?

Just replace TMWServ with ManaServ in the instructions.

That's the strange point: i followed all steps but won't go... I also copied (and not only symlinked) the files but nothing to do...

So, you have (for example) tmwserv-data as the data directory with parts from (for example) tmwdata? And you're running hte servers from the directory that contains the data directory?

That's my directory tree:
-manaserv
*manaserv-account.exe
*manaserv-game.exe
*manaserv.xml
*(cygwin dlls)
*mana.db
*(log files)
--data
**runes.xml
**maps.xml
**items.xml
**permissions.xml
---scripts
all the files are physically in the directory and not symlinked

Why do you try to run ManaServ on Cygwin? It compiles natively on windows without problems.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.
