Well, I'm new to this, so please bear with me as I show you how to create your own World of Warcraft Private Server!
This should work if you COMPLETELY follow my directions. Thanks for reading this, and good luck =))

--{[my first instructable :P}]--

NOTE: I DON'T THINK THAT THIS TUTORIAL WORKS IF YOU USE ANY OTHER AC WEB ULTIMATE REPACK VERSION OTHER THAN 8.0. YOU SHOULD FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS COMPLETELY FOR A HIGHER CHANCE OF SUCCESS :)

WARNING: FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXTREMELY CLOSELY PLEASE PLEASE!!! A MISTAKE MIGHT RESULT IN HAVING TO REINSTALL WOW AND I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THAT :)

SORRY THIS DOESN'T WORK =(

Okay, so, first things first: Download AC Web Ultimate Repack 8.0 (MAKE SURE ONLY 8.0, NOT ANYTHING BELOW) at http://megaupload.com/?d=F1DMYE8D

After you have done that, open it up. All you need to do is click install. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE!

After it installs, go to C:/AC Web Ultimate Repack. Go to "Tools", then "Map Extractor enUS" (if you don't live in the US, use the enGB one).

In this folder, copy the two files named "ad" and "maps".

Go to your WoW directory (usually at C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft) and paste those two folders there. Double-click the "ad" file once pasted into the directory. A little black window pops up, do not touch it, just wait. It's actually loading all the World of Warcraft maps and such. This takes a while, usually 20 minutes-1 hour. Playing another game while it loads is a good idea.

After that's done, go into the "maps" folder you copied. Make sure there are a bunch of files starting with the word map. If there is, feel free to delete the "ad" file, but I don't recommend doing that. Put the "maps" folder with all those files into C:/AC Web Ultimate Repack/Arcemu. Be sure not to paste it into any of the sub-folders.
