So it's been a hot minute since I've had Maplestory and I downloaded it again on my new labtop. Mind you, it's been about 5 years since I've played so everything looks totally different. I downloaded the launcher and just spent almost 3 hours downloading the game. My launcher says that I'm "Currently in game" when I click the big orange play button. Nothing pop ups though. Also from what I remember, once I complete downloading the game, a short cut should be created on my desktop. Or is this now replaced by the 'launcher'? Am I missing something? How can I get into the game? (All I want to do is go ham on some green slimes and tree stumps!) Any advice or work arounds would be greatly appreciated!
Start Nexon Laucher and when you select Maple Story, click on the small gear icon at the far right of all the other small icons, and choose Open Game Files.
Then, find GameLauncher.exe and right click, go to compability mode and click Run in compability mode for Windows XP (Pack 3).
I also selected Run as an administrator.
Close everything and try starting the game again. If it still doesn't work, maybe try putting the Launcher itself and Compability mode and Administrator?
You can try to select Verify Files too when clicking on that same gear icon on the game page.
I tried all methods i could find online and nothing worked.
But after a while I found an intern thing on my laptop which helped.
Press windows + R, then something opens and write: regedit >>> press enter.
Find SoScreenMode and replace the 0-1 by number 3.
Your game should be working back then.
Note that everytime u open maplestory again you have to redo those steps.
I remember how happy i was when after spending days finding a solution, this actually worked.
I unistalled the game and reinstalled it. I FINALLY got a second maplestory icon on my desktop now. I am still unable to get into the game though. I get the security popup on the right hand side of my screen then nothing happens.
Hopefully Nexon fixes these issues though. It's a hassle to do that EVERYTIME.
you can do that by clicking ctrl alt and delete together
go over to processess
and find maplestory.exe
and raise it to above average or high
