    another game to add to the not going to happen pile
    we're never going to see an English version of Maplestory 2 Asia doesn't give a **** about the West

    the reason why MapleStory one is dying in the west they announced Maplestory 2 in Asia at the end we will wind up not having both of them cuz of that announcement

    this is why you do not make sequels of MMOs if you cannot release it in every Market you'll wind up killing one of your markets

    Yes we are going to see an english release , they are working on it... First you had the job postings now you have all the dubs of the classes..

    In regards to MapleStory 1 it's poor decisions from Nexon Korea which is now being forced on GMS. Like boss limit entry nerfing where they don't think how GMS works because KMS bosses don't give much exp where GMS bosses always have. Then you have heavy nerfs to classes which people main , constant buffing and nerfing back and forth, Drop rate nerfs.. ect ect

    (And hopefully they (the "BannedStory 5" creator(s)) won't get a cease and desist letter for their entertainment purposes.) http://maplestory.pe.kr/2171 and https://www.hidden-street.net/forum/threads/42328-Hidden-Street-s-Cease-and-Desist-letter-from-Nexon-(Korea) for reference

    uhh, you realize it was already possible for them to make a character display generator (if they wanted to) before a localization came right? simply due to virtue of 2 other MS2 services existing.


    but if you wanted/ are waiting for this tool just for an animation, it makes little sense because you can also just spend the time in blender making accurate models.

    while it makes sense for maplestory because it's 2D sprite/ pixel art (which makes it hard and very time consuming to accurately recreate), 3D models are not as difficult to make.

    Well, the developers of MS2 have a degree in 3d modelling. People with degrees in model animating make very good, highly detailed models. Also, the way they designed the Wizet "Nexon Invincible Hat" looks almost akin to a 3d version of the GM hat from MS1. So with the GM hat from MS2, I can edit it to have the old MS1 vibe to it. Like, I will add a 6 pointed star sheriff's badge lying on the top with "GM" in the centre, painted peach, platinum (or what the heck is that color the GM sign uses?). Then, I can add 2 different kinds of flashlights to represent the two different kinds of GM hats: a gold flashlight for the +999 all stat hat and a platinum flashlight with a SMG Grand Star over the lens for the +1999 insta-kill GM hat.

    And even though I now have a gaming PC, I'm still working the kinks out on using Maya.
