how to run the server side?

Post by shl008 » Sun Jun 13, 2010 11:55 am

I have the server side(almost code files) and who can tell me how to run it(I only have visual C++ 6.0)? use "runsrv.bat"? additionally, before running the server what should I do to config it? it's a big question for me, cause I'm not good at english and those documentations are hard to understand T^T...I just want to set up a server and use the client to log on it and play, this is my first time so I hope if there is anyone can help me, thanks a lot.

When you have a file runsrv.bat you downloaded the sourcecode for the experimental new server, not the current one. Are you sure that this is what you want?

We don't provide project files for Visual C++ anymore. But the client and the new server can be compiled under windows using Code::Block and the current server can be compiled with Cygwin. Both are free software.

The client and the new server are programmed in C++.

The current server is programmed in C.

Which server is the right one eAthena (current) or Manaserv (new) depends on what you want to do.

Do you want the current production server (server.themanaworld.org)? If so, eAthena: http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/ ... p_a_server.
