How to set up Lineage 2 interlude server
lineage 2 interlude client : http://www.gameborder.com/game/Lineage%20II:%20Interlude%20Client/
MySQL 5.0: MySQL.com
Navicat(a GUI for mysql server will make work much faster): http://www.navicat.com/
Brains: error file not found
Install JAVAJDK(so easy even my cat can do it! )
Installing MysQL 5.0
Open the exutable file youll see something like this :
Press Next button and select server machine
keep pressing next untill you get to Security set up:
uncheck “modify Security settings Tab” press next:
press execute button its gonna look something like this:
Now youll need a GUI to work with MySQL you can use NAVICAT(link Above) or SQLyog:
Install Navicat or SQLyog then open it,in navicat create new connection it should look like this:
Press OK..After that open your Navicat or SQLyog window and at the left side youll see tab called localhost right click on it and choose create new database.Window will pop up fill it up like this:
Now download l2jfree from link above and extract it where you want (ex. Desktop) folder called server will appear, open that folder go to tools after and youll see database_installer.bat file right click on it then press edit…
Find a line that says “set mysqlBinPath=” put here the location of the BIN folder in your MYSql if you installed mysql by deffault it should look like this edited : set mysqlBinPath=C:Program FilesMySQLMySQL Server 5.0bin save and close..
now execute that .bat file…..it should install Lineage 2 database (means you follow the steps that its offer you……) allways choose Full install and in the end it will ask something and Will give options Yes or No choose “NO”
Now you have your database….
We need to set up few server files now
Ok so go to your Serer folder that you extracted earlyer and then open gameserver folder and then move on to config folder….find and open file server.proprierties with notepad or wordpad.
Well youll see bunch of lines appering in front of you but dont panic just few of them need to be edited, but first youll need to find out what your external and internel ip is! go to whatsmyip.com it will show number something like 188.8.131.52(different numbers! not this ones) thats your external IP addres.
so heres the lines you need to edit:
externalHostname:your external Ip goes here
internalhostname: put in 127.0.0.1
save and close
now navigate to Login folder located in Server folder
and execute RegisterGameServer.bat
choose 1 when it will ask “which option you choose” file hexid(id1 or something) will apper there. Rename it to Hexid and copy to gameserver/config folder.
now you can start your server by opening files: StartLoginServer.bat , and StartGameserver.bat (but you still cant log in to your server Reason: Client is not edited for your server ( dont be scared nothing hard to do just read,turn your brain on,and copy/past )
Preparing the client!
download l2endec from the links above ,extract file content somewhere(ex. Desktop) The copy/past those files in to your Lineage II/system folder (to make it easier put your lineage II folder to your desktop) run file called patcher wait till it finish his Job.
the open CMD(start ==> run ==>cmd) and if your Lineage II folder located on desktop just type cd desktop/Lineage II/system
Then! type ” l2encdec -s l2.ini ” in to cmd and youll see some new file in Lineage II/system appearing dec-l2 open this file using notepad and find the line serveraddr=(put here your external IP) save and close
now type in cmd l2encdec -h 413 dec-l2.ini and go to your system folder( lineage II/system) youll see one more new file enc-dec-l2 ok so heres the most difficult part for yo guys >_> delete l2.ini file,rename enc-dec-l2 to l2 , start game using l2.exe(not the official launcher) located in your lineage II/system folder….and don forget to run StartLoginServer.bat and startGameServer.bat before trying to connect to a server…
now if you want to have 100 GM powers just log in to lineage 2 create a character (for example Test) go to y6our navicat…. click on to l2jdb and find tab called characters double click on it… find character named Test then find line that say’s “acces level”(or something) and change it from 0 to 100…..
thats it ! your l2 interlude server running….
and one more thing if you get some freaking error when you try to open l2.exe just start the game using loader.bat
