I’m actually new to aqw development (started a week ago). However I was able to make nythera files work. It’s using code igniter framework, php version 7.4.13, and mariaDB 10.4.12. So basically you need to learn how to setup code igniter (php framework). For the emulator, you need java SE 8 same as most tutorial found in youtube. Also you need swf decompilers to edit action scripts from loaders and game swf since it’s currently redirected to nythera domain. That’s how I managed to make the server run locally.
