Server Setup Guide

There are a few server setup guides around but some are badly worded or outdated so I got bored and decided to make this. This will be revised and updated as time moves on to accommodate for new features and files. I would like to thank Redhunt for a lot of the pictures used in this guide.

Right off the bat I would suggest not running a PT server for the public on anything under 2GB of ram, a 100mbit line and a 3Ghz+ Processor and Windows Server 2003 (Dedicated Hosting is the best idea) along with a good understanding of how PT works.

Downloading Needed Files

1.) Download and install
(Used for unzipping most of the server files)

2.) Download MsSQL 2005 Express Edition
(SQL is used to store a lot of the player data, mainly clan information and login information)

3.) Download MsSQL Server Managment Studio
(Used to manipulate SQL much easier.)

4.) If your running the server off of Windows XP ensure you have .NET Framework 2.0 installed.

5.) Download any of the the files under the ---[Server Files]--- <span style='color:Black'>section in the , I would suggest the McMadness Repack or the 1855 Server & Client. I might pack a couple sets of pre-configured server files with different rates later on.</span>
(The in fact server software used for players to login and play, etc etc)

6.) Download the .

7.) Download the clan files from the under the ---[Clan Files]--- section, I would suggest the Sandurr 2.0 Files or
(Only if you plan on having working clans)

Installing of SQL & Manager

6.) Start the install for the MsSQL Server 2005 Express Edition, continue pressing the next button until you reach the Features screen.
7.) Click Client Components like in this and select "Entire Feature will be installed on local hard drive"

8.) Continue pressing next until the screen prompting you to decide between "SQL Server Authentication" or "Windows Authentication".

9.) Choose SQL Server Authentication and choose a good password and right it down you will need to know this password later.

10.) Continue pressing next until the installer is finished.

11. Find the MsSQL Server Managment Studio installer you downloaded earlier. Just press next until the installer is done, no need to change any settings.

Setting Up SQL Database

12.) Go to your start menu and run SQL Server Management.
( Start > All Programs >Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > SQL Server Management Studio Express)

13.) You should arrive at , don't touch the login name. Enter the password from step 9 created while installing SQL. Press connect and you'll arrive at

14.) Unzip (right click, extract to folder) the PT SQL Files to any folder.

15.) Click the expand tab "+" next to Databases, right click Database and select "Create New Database" the names of all 11 Databases are the same names as the PT SQL Files names. List:


It should look like when done.

16.) After finished making all of the Databases (DB's) go back and right click Account_DB and select "New Query" like , once that is done open up the coresspending named Text file from the PT SQL Files folder.

17.) Copy and paste the entire text files contents into the Query window and press "<span style='font-size:10pt;line-height:100%'>!</span><span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'>Execute"</span><span style='color:Black'>18.) Repeat steps 16 & 17 for all 11 Database's. When it asks you to save for all of the query's you can either pick yes or no, it makes no difference.

19.) When done check back on your DB's to make sure when expanded they look like

Setting up ODBC or SQL.dll
<span style='color:Black'>

This step is a little optional because you have a choice, either use ODBC or setup the SQL.dll properly, for this guide I will list the ODBC method, for the SQL.dll method I might make a guide later on, or look around the forums for it (Searching never hurt anyone)

20.) Click Start > Programs > Accessories > Administrative Tools >
</span>(ODBC)Data Source. (Administrative Tools can also be reached via the Control Panel)

21.) Choose the "DSN System" tab and then proceed to click "Add", scroll down to the very bottom and pick "" and then finish.

22.) After finish is pressed a window should pop up asking for: Name, Description and SQL Server Name.

Name: c8master

Description: Whatever you want.

Name: The name of your SQL Server Instance (Should look like XXXXX\SQLEXPRESS)
(If you forget just open your Studio Manager and look at the server name)

23.) Click next twice until you reach , change the default Database to AccountDB (Not Account_DB theres a difference) and click next until done.

Connecting to Your Server

24.) Create a registry file using this code (Use notepad):

               Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Server1"=""<---your IP here
"Server2"=""<---your IP here
"Server3"=""<---your IP here
"ServerName"="Server Name"

Make sure you change the IPs to your Lan/Wan IPs or the local host IP (

25.) Create a .bmp using this code (Use notepad to edit it)

A8ת [email protected]?y�©(                                                                *Graphic 1 
*Network 1 
*ColorBPP 32 
*MotionBlur false 
*CameraSight OFF 
*ScreenSize 0 
*MicOption OFF 
*Sound On 
*CameraInvert false 
*Server1<---YOUR IP
*Server2<---YOUR IP
*Server3<---YOUR IP
*ServerName YOUR PT NAME
*Version 3096 
*TestVersion 0
Once again make sure to change the IPs, place this file in your PT folder (Client folder NOT server folder) within the images directory, it will ask you to replace, select yes.

26.) Make sure you have the correct client for the server version your using: kPT = 1840 - 1860 and 2331 (for older kPT servers), jPT = 3096 - 3100.

Configuring Your Server

27.) Extract your choice of server files (McMadness Repack, dPT, 1855, whatever) to a folder on the desktop named "PT Server"

28.) Go into your PT Client folder and copy the "Field" and "Char" folders into your "PT Server" folder (Make sure to COPY and not CUT)

29.) After thats done, open up the file called Hotuk.ini and go to this line:


First parameter is the name that appears when players are connecting like this:


The next 3 parameters are your Lan/Wan/Local IP


30.) While your here you may want to set your exp rate on with the *EVENT_EXPUP command.

Setting the number decides the exp multiplier. Such as:

*EVENT_EXPUP 400 would be something around "40x" rates

*EVENT_EXPUP 500 would be something around "50x" rates

*EVENT_EXPUP 600 would be...well you get the idea.

30.) I'll post some pre-configured Hotuk.ini's below somewhere.

Thats the end of the basic server setup guide, continue to the next post for the FAQ's

Troubleshooting Guide

<span style='colorarkOrange'>Hotuk.ini Problems

The Hotuk controls a lot of things, such as EXP rate (Could manually edit the monsters themselves but this is cleaner) and GM status and such. Lets start with a Hotuk thats already more or less preconfigured (IPs still need to be changed for public playing)

//Cleaned and Explained Hotuk by SiK

//Dont Edit these 3 lines

//Your Server Name

// Leave as if playing with yourself, change to external IP if going public.

//Only enable if you have clans installed. 
//Delete the // before *CLAN_SERVER and *ENABLE_CLAN to enable
//*CLAN_SERVER 80 80

//Max amount of people able to login.

// No need to change
*PERMIT_EXP    20000000
*PERMIT_MONEY    20000000

//Events that run themselves (Some require NPCs to function)

//Changes the server exp rates (Dont do anything stupid like 100000) Default rate: 50x

//*PK_FIELD Picks a field where players can attack each other (PK)

//Other Events

//Sets Bless Castle to automatically turn itself on.

//Displays sometime of message upon player login

//Leave if playing by yourself, external IP or disable if public.

//Denotes your directory that backups are stored within.
*BACKUP_FOLDER_NAME "c:databasebackup"
*BACKUP_PATH "c:databasebackup"

//DEBUG_ID are the names of your GM(s) accounts

//DEBUG_IP are the IPs of your GM(s)

//Admin Login is the master password to login any account

//*ADMIN_NAME is the name used when giving yourself GM powers in this case level 3 would be "/;Admin Hello3" and level 3 would be "/;Admin Hello2" 

//*ADMIN_COMMAND are your GM passphrases, if going public change these.

Credits and Thanks
<span style='font-size:10pt;line-height:100%'><span style='colorarkOrange'>
QuantumFusion <span style='color:Black'>- Great guy, helped me so much when I didn't know what the hell I was doing, also releases so many things to help the community. # 1 in my book.

<span style='colorarkOrange'>Teletaro
- Turned into a behind the scenes guy, but if there are big breakthroughs its pretty much guaranteed that Teletaro helped on it.

Shagpub - Another behind the scenes guy, but releases his work when he can, helps the community a tremendous amount.

Operz - Helps a lot when he can, tries to help make people help themselves which is what they SHOULD do.

Sandurr - Helps in the form of cryptic vague clues, but still has a lot of his stuff floating around. No one tends to give him credit for anything.

HappyHardcore <span style='color:Black'>- Still helped a lot prior to mod-dome, and I'm sure he'll do a great job now that he has the power to enforce rules around here.

Well sorry to anyone who felt they should have been included but a thank you is in order to the rz <span style='color:Black'>community in general, no other place like this!</span>

ich hab mir gestern paar serverfiles runtergeladen und habs dann nach stundenlangem rumprobieren irgendwie geschafft ein server on zu kriegen auf dem ich auch connecten kann.

ich hab NPC&#39;s und kann auch mit denen interagieren, aber ich habe keine monster.
ich kann mich mit dem exp-command hoch pushen (siehe bild 2)
ich kann mir geld droppen..und kann tier 1 skills lernen (siehe bild 3)

frage 1: weiß jemand was ich eingeben muss, wenn ich mir ein slayer droppen will ?...möglichst mit spec und so
das steht in der items.ini
ITEM1070C00=0,0,0,0,0,50,50,17239040,Slayer ,13,6480,,,,,,,,13-16,24-27,,6,70-84,8,,,,,,,,,,,48,90,,80,56,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,2,,,1-3,5,,,,,,,
wenn ich "/make 17239040" eingebe, dann liegt "vor" mir ein slayer(siehe bild 4), aber ich kann es nicht aufheben.
es verschwindet dann einfach.

ich kann mir mit dem /spawn command ein monster hinzaubern. in diesem fall ein rabie (siehe bild 5), aber es greift mich nicht an und ich kann es auch nicht killen. ich treff es nicht mal.
frage2: wie mach ich mir ein monster mit dem ich auch kämpfen kann?^^&#39;

wenn ich eine zeit lang auf dem server war und ich mir ein item machen will, dann bekomm ich nur "dummy item"..siehe bild 6

und noch ein prob...das spielt sagt zwar immer es speichert ab und so, aber konnte das noch nich nachprüfen, weil wenn ich mich auslogge komm ich beim nächsten einloggen nicht weiter als bis zur serverauswahl, da crasht das spiel einfach.
das scheint aber nur zu passieren, wenn noch kein char drauf ist.
frage3: wie komm ich in diesem fall wieder auf den server?O.o&#39;

vielleicht kann mir jemand paar tips geben...oder hat jemand ähnliche probs?
ich hoffe die final files werden irgendwann geleaked^^&#39;
naja, thx schonma








hmn..das droppen und aufheben geht mittlerweile...nur kann ich kein spec zu den items hinzufügen...alles andere kann ich eigentlich ändern...
hab mir nen knight mit 85lvl zeuch gemacht xD
