About Project

Dawn of Light allows you to host and connect to your own DAOC servers

What is Dawn of Light?

Founded in March 2003 Dawn of Light (DOL) is the first free open source server emulator for Dark Age of Camelot (DAOC).  Dawn of Light allows the community to create their own servers and custom content. DOL is written in C# using the .NET Framework, and using a MySQL database server on Windows machine.

Mission Statement:

Dawn of Light is an Open Source project devoted to emulating Dark Age of Camelot. In emulating Dark Age of Camelot we pledge to strictly conform to live servers, yet also design the code to allow the community to create custom servers through scripts.

Is Dawn of Light Legal?

Playing on a Dawn of Light powered server

If you use your DAOC Client to connect to a Dawn of Light powered server you are violating your EULA with Mythic. This gives them the right to close your live DAOC account if they find out.

Hosting a Dawn of Light powered server

Do not charge for services or the ability to connect to your server

Do not modify the client files

The following are credits for all contributions to the DOL project, the project has had a long history, and so it's hard to compile a list of everything people have done for it, below is a snapshot list of those who have contributed code. If you know anyone who has benefited the project significantly please let me know.

We appreciate the work that everyone has contributed to the project, it wouldn't exist without you.
