    Welcome to my new PHPRetro Setup Package TUT!

    I Endo am releasing this because, well who wants to sit around for 20 minutes searching for all of the right things to make your retro?

    Well with this new package it will come with the following items (Basically Everything you need):

    1. PHPRetro 4.0.8 (My Personal Favorite Stable Edition)
    2. HoloGraph Emulator v26 (Works perfectly)
    3. MySQL OBDC Connector (Needed to connect to MySQL from Xampp and the Holograph EMU)
    4. Xampp (Newest Xampp)
    5. Microsoft Visual C# (Needed to run the EMU Duh!)
    6. And the best part of all!! Working v26 DCR's!!!!

    Quick Tutorial on How to Set Up!

    S1. Install Xampp and make sure you install you your C:\ Drive.

    S2. Once Xampp is finished go to the xampp folder in your C:\ Drive and open HTDocs.

    S17. Now click go around the bottom of that screen.

    S18. Wait for it to upload all files then u can close that.

    S19. Now go to PHPRetro Setup Pack > Holograph EMU > Bin > Debug > Bin > MySQL.ini and enter all of your details, (Leave host,port,and user all the same. CHANGE PASSWORD AND DATABASE NAME TO Password = Whatever your password is Database = Whatever you named your database.

    Hi, the tutorial is great, and detailed but I seem to be having an issue connecting the Holograph Emulator to the database. I have tried just about everything to try to get it to work, but I am still getting the error code that you talk about in the known errors. There doesn't seem to be a reason as to why it isn't connecting. My port numbers, and IP address matches up, and the settings are configured in the .ini file. I configured housekeeping, ran the program as administrator, ran on Vista comparability, added the ODBC 5.1 driver as a data source in the ODBC manager in both 32 bit and 64 bit, I made sure the port numbers added up in the database config file, I made sure it was the right version of Xampp, along with the other programs. I also tried using SVN to get a new copy of the Holograph Emulator, and I get the same error code. Here is the exact message I am getting. (I can't post images yet, sorry!)

    [11:35:35 AM:738] [Eucalypt.Boot] » Starting up Holograph Emulator for ***...
    [11:35:35 AM:738] [Eucalypt.Boot] » Expanded threadpool.

    [11:35:35 AM:770] [DB.openConnection] » Failed to connect! Error thrown was: ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

    Info: I am using Windows 10, XAMPP 1.7.3, and all the programs that are included in the pack. I am hosting my own DCRs through localhost.

    EDIT: I realized that the client (DCR file) was trying to load game data from habbohotel perhaps that has something to do with it?
