    Re: Whats the Difference?

    to run a server you need a emulator...mangos and ascent are one of maybe hundreds of emulators...
    The most known emulators are: mangos, ascent and wowemu probably.
    Mangos is good but not really stable, uses a lot of bandwich and i mine opinion not the best.
    Ascent is the best emu right now i think.... its much more stable then mangos (can host hell more players with less lagg and bandwichusage)
    Antrix = Ascents old name... some time ago antrix changed name to ascent.
    WoWemu = one of the old most used emulators
    about databases: mangos and ascent have almost the same DB... the best DB is owned by the ascent team (made by iceman,gorm,aceindy).

    so i hope you have enough info...
    ouch forgot this:
    ascent emu: http://www.ascentemu.com/
    mangos: www.mangosproject.org/

    other usefull links:
    Project Silvermoon Official Community Forums (Powered by Invision Power Board)
    Emupedia.com - Term of use

    and more but i am sure you can find links to others on thsi forum or on one of the posted above

    Re: Whats the Difference?

    You make it seem so complicated.

    I'll "noob" it down for you:

    MaNGOs - Mediocre, not very stable, but really easy to run and extremely noob-friendly. Great for when you're just starting in the Emulator "business".

    Antrix - Came out around the same time that MaNGOs did, very stable, a little harder to use, older version of Ascent. Been given the title, "Old Ascent" many times.

    Ascent - The most recent and stable of all emulators, although also the most difficult to bring up. When brought up successfully, is an incredible emulator, and you'll find that most of the custom addons and recent databases/repacks are generally for Ascent. The most popular database, recommended for mediocre and above emulator users.

    Hope this helps...

    If you're new, I'd simply recommend going with MaNGOs and slowly working your way up. There are guides for each of these 3 emulator in the Emulator Server Guides section of the forums. Good luck!

    Since I no longer fear getting banned, judging by what MMOwned has become, I'll start being honest now.

    yep ascent is way better
    well a question: did you convert your characters and accounts to ascent? or did you just do a whipe?
    (we succesfully did a conversion on a testserver ^^ )
