Welcome to C(ontinued)-MaNGOS
C(ontinued)-MaNGOS is a free project with the following goal:
Doing WoW-Emulation Right!
This means, we want to focus on:
WoW-Emulation This project is about developing a server software that is able to emulate a well known MMORPG service.
- This project is focused on developing content!
- Also there are many other aspects that need to be done and are considered equally important.
- Anyone who wants to do stuff is very welcome to do so!
- Our goal must always be to provide the best code that we can.
- Being 'right' is defined by the behavior of the system we want to emulate.
- Developing things right also includes documenting and discussing how to do things better, hence...
- Learning and teaching are very important in our view, and must always be a part of what we do.
To be able to accomplish these goals, we support and promote:
- of our work: Our work - including our code - is released under the GPL. So everybody is free to use and contribute to this open source project.
- for our developers and contributors on things that interest them. No one here is telling anybody what to do. If you want somebody to do something for you, pay them, but we are here to enjoy.
- to have FUN with developing.
A friendly environment
- We try to leave personal issues behind us.
- We only argue about content, and not about thin air!
- We follow the Netiquette.
-- The C(ontinued)-MaNGOS Team!
ScriptDev2 is a script library, an extention of the scripting capabilities that comes with cMaNGOS ( http://cmangos.net/ ), written in C++ and is compatible with Windows and Linux. SQL needed for database support both MySQL and PostgreSQL.
This script library provides unique scripts for NPCs, gameobjects, events and other that need unique implementation.
Once ScriptDev2 is compiled it is automatically run by MaNGOS on server startup.
For further information on ScriptDev2, please visit our project subforum at http://cmangos.net/forum-32.html
Documentation on various development related topics can be found in the ../doc/scripts docs/ sub directory as well as on the subforum.
The required SQL files for creating the database backend are included in the ../sql/ sub directory. If you are updating from an older ScriptDev2 version, make sure to take a look at the SQL files provided in the ../sql/updates/
