  • Bots commin to steal your maps

    Bots are already back? That's pretty fast the patch didn't even last 2 days before hackers got past the security.

  • Problem with Screen Size

    Your monitor display's resolution settings will determine how much room is available for everything else, such as the game window.

    For example, I have my monitor set to 1920x1080, which means if I set the game's resolution to 1920x1080, it will fill up the entire screen, because the size of the game window is the same as the display resolution.

    However, if I set the game's resolution to 1024x768, it will take up a little more than a quarter of the screen.

    The game's resolution options are basically 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x720, 1366x768, and 1920x1080.
    If you don't want the game to take up the whole screen but you still want a decent sized window, just make sure your monitor's resolution has a higher width and height than the game's resolution, but not that much higher.

    Or get a second monitor if you can.

    I have tried a program called "resize enable" in the past to turn non-resizable windows into resizable windows by dragging the edges and corners as you mentioned, but I never tried it on maplestory since I'm good with it filling up the whole screen. https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/11799/turn-non-resizeable-windows-into-rezieable-windows/

  • Would SMS verification reduce the botting problem?

    I won't link to one as that's highly questionable, but there are account creation programs designed to bypass SMS verification.
    You can look for them on your own if you care so much for them. My goal isn't to stop hackers completely.
    My goal is to slow them down without hurting legit players. SMS verification isn't very secure. Plenty of players don't want Nexon having their information, either.
    I've said in the past that phone verification would work to some degree, but that I oppose it.

    SMS verification would be a solution going forward. Existing accounts would not require verification. So these "plenty of players" that have been doing fine for years don't need to worry about giving nexon their information.

    SMS verification isn't very secure because anyone can get a number, but there is a reasonable limit to the number of phone numbers that someone would be able to get ahold of before they start running into problems.

    And it's not like someone's going to be able to use my phone number, get the verification code, and then have my account banned.

    Today there are fake programs. such as phone, email, voice recognition, SMS via Google Play Store programs and other websites, this is the problem, many hackers will use these methods to continue in the game and legitimate players who have 2 or 3 optional accounts would be affected, adding this would be a catastrophe because simply nexon is not prepared for this, maplestory .. no .. nexon .. practically became ubisoft and others like Activision, Depp silver and gearbox and other companies for disaster in their games help their communities etc etc

    Yes, but there isn't an unlimited number of phone numbers available like there is with emails.

    If a legitimate player wants to create a second or third account, nexon can allow a single number to be associated with 2 or 3 accounts. Perhaps have a cooldown where you can create a second account after a week or two weeks. If a number is banned, then of course you would not be able to use that number again.

    I don't know what you think you have in mind, but you may want to check your math there, sport.

    Is there an issue with the math?

    There are tools that can do that, yes. Just look on github. Really people, it's not nearly as air tight as you think.
    The number of banned accounts thing would be what really kills it. You run into the problem of every phone number under the sun being blocked from Nexon accounts though.

    Remember that Korean MMOs are backed by real world data as well (KSSN) and they still have hackers.
    It might slow them down, but it certainly won't stop them.

    Can you link a github example that you have seen that would be an effective bypass against SMS verification, for farm bots?
    Having every phone number under the sun being blocked is not really a problem.

    The goal is precisely to slow them down, not to stop hacking completely. I think you have a very different goal in mind.
