PostSubject: Private Server Set Up Guide!   Tue Oct 05, 2010 4:40 pm

First topic message reminder :

Since no one could even get close to guessing who i was on the Suba forums, i'll just post it here where i can openly answer any questions you have.

The following guide will give you enough knowledge to setup and run a Ace Online/ Air Rivals private server.

Step 1: Getting the files you need.

-Go to megaupload.com 6U3JW4SJ and download it. After, download megaupload.com U4PIJKFX . These are the basics you will need. Extract the first one

to the root of your Harddrive. Extract the second to your desktop.

-If you need a flysis client, download it from here:
http://games.on.net/file/14941/Flysis_Full_Client_1.0.0.9

-Download SQL 2k5 or 2k8, it's up to you. Out of personal preference, i use 2k5.
Go to http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/r2.aspx to get the trial version of SQL 2k8. Try to avoid getting Express if possible (It has a limitation on DB restores.

-Download Hamachi. It will give you a Virtual IP which will be used to connect to the server. You can download it from https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi2/ . Install it and run through the set up. Once running, click the power button. You'll have to create a Hamachi ID, it doesn't really matter what it is. Then, It'll ask you whether you want to Create a network or Join an existing one. Choose to create a new one, name it, give it a password. You're done with Hamachi for now.


Step 2: Setting up the server (AceOnline folders).

-If you didn't extract the first file to the root of your HD already, do it now. It should be around 36.3 MBs.

-Once extracted, go into the AceOnline folder. You should see 9 other folders inside (bin, config, DB_BAKS, htdocs, Lib, log, map, SCMonitor, SCVoIP) along with odbx_x86 / 64 and a README file. The README is a little Engrishy, but if you wanna read it go ahead.

-Go into the config folder and look for the file named global.cfg. Open it using Notepad.

-The top two IPs that say 127.0.0.1, change it to say your Hamachi IP (It'll start with a 5). This isn't completely necessary, you can just set it up as a 127.0.0.1 (Which for those of you who don't know, that means local host) However, this guide is made for people who want others to connect to your server (Say, a friend comes over and wants to play too, or some Ventrilo friends, take your pick). So for the sake of the guide, do the Hamachi IP.
If done right, it should look as follows:


-Now you're going to do a bit of copying, bare with me. It's going to sound a bit awkward reading it (Alot easier hearing how to do it), but i'll use pictures to try and help guide you through it.
What you're going to want to do is open up the server folder, go to the map folder. Now you're going to open up AO Stuff, and go to 002SERVER/Server/map. Copy all of the map files from that to your server. So it should look like this:

-Now find where you installed flysis. Go into the Res-Obj folder, and copy all of those files into the Res-Obj folder in the server. Should be like this:

-Now go back a folder in your flysis folder, go to Res-Map. Now go back a folder in your server. Copy ALL of the DATs to the clients Res-Map folder, and ONLY the .DATs. Like so:


Now you should be set with the files that you needed to copy over to both the client and the server. Now on to SQL Side of things!



Step 3: Setting up the server (SQL Side of things).

-Moving right on to SQL side of things, the installation is fairly simple, so i'm not going to walk you through it. You're a big kid, running your own server and stuff, i think you can figure it out. (When it asks what you want to install, select all. USe NT/System Authority, and Add current user for anything after that. Install it and you should be on your way. Figured i'd just give an overview

-Open the SQL Server Configuration Manager, click on SQL Server Network Configuration, and click on Protocols for MSSQLSERVER. Right click TCP/IP Settings. It should look like the following:

If it doesn't make it look like that.
Now go over to the IP Addresses tab, and since you have Hamachi installed, the IP should already be there.

Make it Active if it isn't, Enable it, and change the Port to 9979. When you click okay, it will say that the service will have to be restarted for the changes to be applied.

Go to Start, type in services.msc, and scroll down until you find MSSQL Server, Restart it and you should be good.

-Now open up the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. Right click on Databases, and chose the restore option. if done successfully, you'll get to this screen:

All you have to do now is restore the databases. Do as follows:

Once you restore atum2_db_1, do the same for atum2_db_account:

Now you're set for that side of things. To make an account, go to Databases, atum2_db_account, Tables, and right click on dbo.td_Account, select "Edit top 200 rows"
You'll see a default account named Admin, you can add an account by typing in its:
AccountName
Password
AccountType (0= Normal user, 128= GM, 256= Helper)

Now you're almost done, all you have to do now is add the odbc's and compile a batch file.

Step 4: Setting up the ODBC's

-What you have to do now is go to your server folder, and double click on the file named odbc_x86 (or x64 for you 64 bit users out there). It'll ask if you're sure, just say yes. Now go to Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC). Click on the Systm DSN tab, there should be 5 entries. Only worry about the top 4. Double click the first one, you'll want to edit the Server Name part. Where it says 127.0.0.1, put in the name of your server like so:

Click finish and test it. If it passes successfully, do the same for the next 3. Once all are done and successfully tested, congratulations. Only one more step to go.

Step 5: Getting the Batch file
If you don't know how to make a batch file, just use the following program and method:
Quote :

Quick BFC: http://www.abyssmedia.com/downloads/quickbfc.exe

Install and start the Program.
Now Type in:

echo off
start Launcher.atm (YOURIP)

Click on Embedded Files and Browse for your FLYSIS.ico (in your game folder).

Now click -> Project -> Compile.

Save it in your Game Folder as .exe

Now you can try to start your own compiled Start.exe

Mine for example was:
echo off
start Launcher.atm 5.207.74.185

You're going to use that Start.Exe to get the client to connect to your server. Now you're pretty much done. All you have to do is bring the server online. To do that, all you gotta do is go to the bin folder in your server, and open up, in this order, Preserver, IM Server, LogServer, Field Server, and then NPC Server. First three take next to nothing to boot, Field takes a little long and so does NPC. If you open task manager, and it says not responding, don't freak out. That means the server is actually booting up. Once Field server comes online you can launch into the game.

If done correctly....

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU'RE DONE~!

To me the same happens except it says "Cannot connect to Pre Server" and not "Cannot connect to server".

Please post the code you put on the batch, maybe it's my fault.

some questions:

1.i've got win7 64-bit ultimate but when i start the servers (PreServer,IMServer,LogServer,Field Server and NPC Server) i've got no error.

BUT when i start the Flysis client with the slef-made ".exe" it says:"cannot connect to presserver" ...

2.which SQL version should i use? (i think 2005 ,because this server is only ep2 so you should use an older serverversion...),but 2005 is not any more downloadeble as evoulation-version.only as express...

help pls!!! Sad Sad Crying or Very sad

Instead of making the batch file, do this:

1. Change Launcher.atm to Launcher.exe (just change the name)

2. Right click it, select "Send to Desktop (create shortcut)

3. Right click the shortcut on your desktop, select properties.

4. On "Destination", add your Hamachi IP to the end of what's already written there.


It fixed the problem for me.

If you are changing it to an .exe you don't need to reset it. Just right click, select ---> rename.

It's because it's still a .atm file. You have to make the file extensions show on on Windows before you can actually edit them.

Click "organisieren" (organize) and select -----> 'folder and search options', click on the 'View' tab on the window that pops up. Make sure the 'Hide Extension For Known File Types' box is unchecked.



And then, you'll be able to edit file extensions.

recalls.
place the same files from the client (flysis, res obj, res map, res tex) in the map folder on the server.
this is the correction for normal users (0) can connect.
Create an account manager (128), reviews the file errors in the chat window.

To pre server, have the sql user account created Atum. global.cfg review ip,

create bat file and run the same file to login to your private server.

sorry for my bad English. I live in Argentina

scadmin = tool for spacecowboy = scadmin need patch, xor encode, etc, this shit found in ep2 with xor encode and patch,

monitor tool = pre server, im server and field server = connect with 127.0.0.1...... NPC server and Log server not found,

for run wathprocess in bin folder, check the files EXEC.ini and config_root.cfg and put the wait folder.

in EXEC.ini

_ What is the XOR key?
~8xANs(^fP{)34$(fcbTN$(C-=x

_ How do I get the Admin tool to work?
Using the SCAdminTool posted below.
1. Search for 76514B1F7E57425B564B1E74 using a hex editor.

2. Using SCAdminTool --> Xor Encode Type in your IP in the first box.

3. Type in Ace-Online-Development-Haxz in the 2nd box.

4. Click Xor Encode. Take the result, and replace it with the string in the first step.

5. After your're done editing the AdminTool

6. hex edit the pre-server and find SCAdmin

7. Overwrite your ip where you see the others.
