The current server runs on the Ragnarok Online server eAthena. The software can be found here: http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopic.php?t=1909
When you google a bit you will find a more recent version of eAthena with a lot of bugfixes. But we can't guarantee you that our server files will work with it and can't help you when they don't.

Note that the configuration files in the above packet are very outdated (or completely wrong when you downloaded eAthena from somewhere else). You should download the most recent ones using Subversion. You can find our server files at the subversion URL https://themanaworld.svn.sourceforge.ne ... ata/trunk/

Now you just have to change the ip addresses and inter-server passwords in conf/login_athena.conf, conf/map_athena.conf and conf/char_athena.conf.

Then start the charserver, loginserver and mapserver applications. You should start them from the command line so that you can read the error message when they don't start properly.

Now you should have a TMW server running that is identical to the official one.


When you managed to connect to your server with your tmw client then please look a bit through the configuration files and write again when you have some questions.
  • 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.
