Irose Online Server Guide
Before I start the tutorial, i want to apologize for my bad english bcuz i'm a Vietnamese. I'll try make this guide as simple as i can but clear so you can understand it. I hardly found any irose server setup guide using arcturus files, it seems like it's been vanished from many forums. Anyway credits goes to those who had brought some useful guides & gave me an understanding on how to setup irose server, without them i won't able to setup my 1st irose private server.
Server file used:
Windows XP SP2 with Net Framework 3.5 installed.
Please follow all steps below in order to make your server works:
[File] Download Microsoft SQL Server 2000 & Service Pack 4:
[Video] Installing SQL 2000:
[Video] Installing Service Pack 4:
If you want secure setup:
[File] Download arcturus server files (SHO):
[Video] Setting up SHO:
[Video] Create account in database:
Once you done step 1 & 2, open your .ini files in GameServer, LoginServer & WorldServer folder. Inside .ini file change your_IP_here & your_sql_password with your IP & SQL password.
Example in SHO_GS.ini:
EditDBIP=127.0.0.1 < If you see this, leave this as it is
EditDBPassword=your_sql_password < If you see this, change it with your SQL password
EditAccountServerIP=your_IP_here < If you see this, change it with your IP address
[Video] Getting 3Ddata files:
[File] Download VFS Extractor:
[File] Wildrose Client:
Try not to run wildrose.exe or let it updates bcuz it will download a trojan file to you computer.
Create simple launcher:
Start RuffProtect.exe put_your_ip_here < change this with your ip address
[File] Download launcher ( don't forget to change the ip with your ):
[File] Download RuffProtect:
Put above file, launcher & ruffprotect together to wildrose folder.
[Video] Loopback Adapter installation:
Note: Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > right click Loopback Adapter & go properties. Double click Internet Protocol [TCP/IP] then put your IP & Subnet mask ( see picture below ):
Now you need to port forwarded so people can connect into your server, since people are using different router so i can't write a guide about this so please google it or ask your ISP for this:
Google "How to Port Forwarding"
To check if your port is open ( type 29000 in input box ):
This is fun part, after you follow all steps above now it's time to run the server.
Double click each of these files ( inside SHO folder ) in order: LoginServer, WorldServer & lastly GameServer.
Now all you need to do is to create a website or forum for registration & let people join your server.
*Note: If you want more secure on database & ruffprotect, drop me a pm.
All the best,
