How to Set Up and Customize Your Own Shaiya Ep 5 Server
Shaiya is a popular MMORPG that has been around since 2007. The game features a fantasy world where players can choose between two factions: the Alliance of Light and the Union of Fury. Shaiya has several episodes, each with different features and content. The latest official episode is Ep 8, but many players still prefer Ep 5, which is considered by some to be the most balanced and fun.
If you are one of those players who want to play Shaiya Ep 5, you might be interested in setting up your own server. This way, you can have more control over the game settings, customize the features and content, and invite your friends to join you. However, setting up a Shaiya server is not an easy task. You need to have some technical knowledge and skills, as well as the right tools and files.
In this article, we will guide you through the process of setting up and customizing your own Shaiya Ep 5 server. We will use the server files provided by TeddyBear94 on elitepvpers[^2^], which are based on the original files by Svinseladden and Stinkax. These files work with SQL Server 2008 R2 and have some pre-setted features such as 50% blacksmith chance, level 70 cap, and 65k damage cap. We will also show you how to fix some common issues and exploits that might occur on your server.
