I haven't been able to login since the "maintenance", no matter how long I wait there is no getting past the Region Select screen.

Help?

    Don't wait on region select. That always makes me crash, too.

    What works for me is:
    1. Use GameLauncher.exe
    2. Let Wizet/Nexon logos play
    3. Click to skip the video (some people say to watch Task Manager and make sure Maplestory.exe is using over 300mb memory before clicking. But definitely don't wait too long or you'll crash later)
    4. Select a region as soon as the screen shows up
    5. Wait at least a minute or two on the login screen (if using Task Manager: Maplestory.exe should be above 700mb before proceeding). Waiting longer is fine.
    6. Log in and play normally.

    I assume that if you use Nexon or Steam Launcher, you won't get the login screen, so you need to wait on the world-select until the game is done loading.

    Good luck.

    Please let me know if you manage to get through, I've been trying since the maintenance on two different computers, with two different accounts, on two different IPs and still can't get anywhere. Even trying to make a character on Luna is a no-go.

    I've done that all and it was going good until I had to put in my ID.. It didn't take my email and I don't remember how long it has been since I had an actual Nexon ID.
    Although now that I try it I get the same error as I did with the Nexon Launcher. Oh well, off to other games until/if they fix this. I appreciate the help, though. Hopefully others can take advantage of this workaround.
