tmwserver maps

Post by donkyhotay » 24 Apr 2007, 18:37

I downloaded and compiled the tmwserver in order to play with the code however I am unable to test it due to the fact there are no maps, items, monsters, etc. As far as I can tell from the wiki while the source code will be given out all of the maps for the mana world won't be released. While I can understand this I think there should be a small set of maps available for people to use for testing/learning purposes. If there already are maps available for download and I just missed them I apologize in advance and would appreciate a link.

I must be thinking of another open-source MMOG but I could have sworn I saw that mentioned in here somewhere though admittedly I can't find it anymore so I guess I'm wrong. I did find maps located here:
https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/the ... runk/data/
for the eAthena server and was wondering if they are compatible with the new server.

No, the eAthena .wlk files aren't supported by the new server. The server uses the same map format as the client does. This makes the maintainability and administration a lot easier.

So you can just copy the maps directory from the client into the data directory of the server so that the server finds the maps in /data/maps. Also note the file maps.xml in the servers data directory. It tells the server what maps to load.

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