Hello everyone,

I currently live and volunteer at a hospital in a remote mountain area of Papua New Guinea. I have had a paid WoW account for over 5 years but after moving here, the internet is not able to handle playing WoW. I lived here for 7 months now and will probably be here for another 17 months. I have really been missing WoW though and have been finding ways to keep my interest in it. I played through the entire Warcraft 3 campaign and have been purchasing Warcraft books for my Kindle to read.

I recently had the idea of looking for a way to play WoW offline and that led me to this site! From reading, it sounds like the kind of program I would want but I have a couple of questions.

How much programming/database knowledge do you need to have to use this? I have done some beginner C++ and Java programming before so I have a little knowledge but I wanted to make sure I would be able to handle it. I also read on a different site that you can download a "repack" of this code which cuts a lot of the difficulty out of it. Is there a good repack of this code that includes the latest edition and I won't have to worry about containing some kind of backdoor/tojan/etc?

My other questions is whether or not I would be able to play with my friend here who also enjoys playing WoW. If we connect through a crossover cable, is it possible that we can play together? Would we both be able to play our characters separate as well or would we have to be connected every time we want to play?

Thanks for the info!

You need about none skills of c++ or java to install it, only to make modifications at the source code but I think you wanna play blizzlike...
to get started take a look at http://www.arcemu.or...the_source_code at the bottom of every page is a link to the next step.. it is very detailed and you should be able to compile and use arcemu without any difficulties. if not, just ask here!

There is no official repack and you can't trust any other... how you already said... and actually compiling it by yourself is a lot better, saver and not that complicated.

Arcemu was made to play together and as long you are in a network it is very easy to play to connect for him, take a look at http://www.arcemu.or...osting_on_a_LAN

Thanks for the information! I started going through the wiki to try and get it to work. I followed each step but when I got to http://arcemu.org/wiki/CMake I had problems. I will post my question in Windows Help but if it works out, it sounds like this will be just what I am looking for.

Welcome to Arcemu!

This 'LAN' connection you are talking about is possible since you will run on a local network from 127.0.0.1 aka Localhost. You can also choose a option called "Hamachi" it requires Internet connection but it's a very basic way to make the server public for your freind, all he needs to do is to join the hamachi group and use your hamachi ip (the hoster).

Send me a private message if you need personal help over MSN or Skype!

Thank you for the information on doing a LAN connection. I am hoping that our compound here will be able to set up a network soon so we will be connected even though we are a half mile away. Then I would set up a designated computer to be our server.

Quick question, if we play together on a LAN and I am acting as the server computer, will my friends character information be saved to my computer or to his? So when we are not connected, will he be able to host a server on his own computer and play his same characters or will he have to have separate characters for playing alone and when we play together?
