MapleStory2 is a 3D game with a block-based world similar to MineCraft. Customization is a key feature, allowing you to change the visual design of your player and many game elements such as items. You will be able to create your own house, dungeons and more. The original MapleStory and MapleStory2 will be separate games, therefore your players and progress cannot be transferred over. Furthermore, Nexon will continue to maintain and run both at the same time, so you will not lose anything once MapleStory2 launches. MapleStory2 is being developed by Nsquare, the joint development studio formed by Nexon and NCsoft. MapleStory 2 will be released in Korea on July 7th 2015 at 7PM KST (10:00 UTC+0).

MapleStory2 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Can I play MapleStory2 with an unverified Account?
A: No, you can’t yet as with the required verification, you must ensure that you live in Korea so you will not be able to bypass that. You can purchase verified Accounts for $12 USD.
Q: How to get activated/verified accounts?
A: There is two way to get an Activated Nexon (KR) account needed to play Maplestory 2:
1. Having a Korean friend that could activate your Nexon (KR) Account using a Korean phone.
2. Purchasing an Activated Nexon (KR) Account on a site specialized in selling Korean Games Accounts.
Q: Do I need a VPN to play MapleStory2?
A: No, you don’t there is no risk at getting banned if you don’t use a VPN as long as you don’t share an account.
Q: How do I login/play into MapleStory2?
1. Visit MapleStory2 Nexon Homepage
2. Enter verified account credentials (e-mail and password). Click “LOG IN” (blue button).
3. The website redirects to a captcha page.
4. Re-enter verified account credentials with correct captcha. Click “LOG IN”.
4. Wait for browser to auto-refresh page in 5 seconds to return to MapleStory2 Nexon Homepage.
5. Click “Game Start” yellow button.
6. Wait 10~30 seconds for game to start.
Note: If you complete step 2 using an unverified account, you will not be redirected to a captcha page and receive a small pop-up window error message. If you installed MapleStory2 in a SSD (Solid State Drive), it will take less than 20 seconds for the game to boot/start whereas 20~40 seconds if installed in a HDD (Hard Disk)
Q: Why does the update take so long?
A: This is probably because you aren’t located in Korea. This means that your ping is high and the download speed low as-well as many are updating at the moment.
Q: Why am I stuck in Maple-Island?
A: This happened to me twice and is probably because of the high ping/Server Maintenance they made. Just restart the Game and everything should be fine.
Q: Why did my Level/EXP reset?
A: This is because of the Server Maintenance during the last hours. You have to do all again.
Q: I’m getting a dialog box when i start the game with verified account?
I bought a Korean account and I’m able to log in without any verification issues. However, I’m getting a strange dialogue box that is giving me some date and time table. Is the server down or is this some kind of limitation to the hours that I’m allowed to play?
A: It is now a maintenance. Should be done in an hour or so.
Q: How to spawn bosses?
A: If you go to the map, there are maps with the boss icon in them. put your mouse over the icon and it will tell you the channels that the bosses are alive in. If you tried to enter a channel with boss alive inside but being blocked, it means the channel is full. You have to wait for it to open again or try one of the higher numbered channels.

Avoid buying user created cosmetics, especially if item use copyrighted material
TL;DR: Don’t buy things that violate the copyright rule.
In the Merit shop, the second tab (디자이너 샵) is user created cosmetics. I have looked through the market, and most (if not all) violate Nexon’s rule stating no copyrighted material or designs can be used on items. I know that BMO backpack looks awesome. But buying items that violate copyright rule is risky, since Nexon may not refund your Merits (because you just endorsed a copyright violation). So if you plan on spending Merit (which is basically cash), use it on Nexon’s shop, which is the first tab named “프리미엄 샵”.
Ayumilove MapleStory2 English Patch Guide
English Patch Error and Solution
If you execute the English “switch.bat” file, an error appeared stating “Cannot gain access to the given folder, file or path…” – It means you will need to provide yourself (as the user) the permission to modify the filename extension. Here is the step by step guide on how to solve this issue:
- Visit the MapleStory2 installation folder
- Right-click on the “data” folder where the switch.bat is residing inside. (Note: Why not the MapleStory2 folder? This is because Windows doesn’t change permission for child folders)
- Click “Properties”
- Select “Security” tab.
- Click “Advanced” button.
- Select the “User” in the Permission Entries. (Note: If you do not see your Windows account username inside, you need to add it here!)
- Click “Edit” button.
- Tick the checkbox “Full Control”, “Modify”, “Read and Execute”, “List folder contents”, “Read” and “Write”.
- Click OK to save changes and close “Permission Entry”.
- Click OK to close “Advanced Security Settings”.
- Click OK to close the Properties window.
- Try to run MapleStory2 application again.

@Odinson: I have not keep track of MapleStory 2 updates for a long time as I stopped playing it after completing all the content in the game.
Does all of this still work in 2020, you know because they shut down GMS2. MS2 was a good game, it was a shame that Nexon America shut it down.
@TriiipY: I’ll be updating the English patch but not as frequent as I would like. The English patch does break when there is a major MS2 update. I have updated the English patch today 2018-07-13.
@Ayumilove: Will you be updating the English patch for MS2 Korea? Does the patch break every single time MS2 updates? The current one is not working as far as I can tell. Thank you for all the hard work!
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (May 28, 2018) is now available for download.
@Rak: Thanks for providing the file update on the MS2 English patch 🙂
For more quick updates, you can get the files from one of the developers at https://miyuyami.github.io/ms2_patches.html
you can also use the host file method which the files are based on
@Ayumilove: Hi, thanks for this patch. Just wanted to point out a few errors shadowstar_network mentioned.
First is the character creation. Characters only have the color blue. Hair, skin, and all other customizables are blue. Alll the colors on the pallet appear as white, but when clicked ends up as a different shade of blue for a few. Even if you were ok with the colors only being blue, the game does not allow you to create the character when selecting name. This is of course fixed when switching back to the korean files.
Second, some of the bosses are invisible. When having to fight the henchman in “Finding a Clue” he is invisible, gives you damage, and cannot be hit. Not all the bosses are this way, but when you have to fight him three times it’s a bit frustrating to switch between the files constantly. Here is another example.
The third error which kind of goes with the first one is everything customizeable you can buy in the nexon shop is blue.
Please fix these asap, and thanks!
Ayumilove do you plan on updating the english patch once your login issues is fixed?
i started the game and it worked until the char creation, after that it crashed and i get this graphic card error ( Creation Failed: could not create hard drive device)
@Keith: I am not updated the English patch because I’m not able to login to Korea MapleStory2 due to some issues.
Help, I followed the guild to install the English patch but it hasn’t changed it from Korean to English.
Anyone else had this issue? If someone could tell me what I have done wrong and how to fix it please.
cant find a answer to this anywhere. When I play with the patch my character is blue in color sometimes. Even outfits are blue and the color picker is completely blank but when I play without the patch its all fine I just cant understand anything XD. Also the boss in the “Finding A Clue” quest is invisible :O
Has anyone encountered being stuck on a white screen after the nexon logo and the bunch of korean words. It just hangs there. I can hear the music and all but.. I’ve tried both KMS2 and CMS2…
When are you able to update the English patch? I’m stuck on wei Hong quest

Nevermind it decided to start working for some unknown reason after 3 hours :/
The patch worked just fine for me last night, and everything was translated properly. Now tonight, I follow the same steps and the game seems to have a new patch that changes the files, and can no longer see anything in english. Is there a way around this? Thanks in advance ^^
I am not not able to launch maplestory 2 either? Do you know why the game is not launching?
@Maddy: Hi, I currently unable to start MapleStory2 application due to an issue. Therefore, unable to update the English patch for MapleStory2.
None of the cherry blossom event items show with the patch. Are you planning on fixing this in future updates?

Hi, so I have been having issues with using my account of late. It lets me on the home page, I click ‘game start’ and then sends me to a page where I have to input the social security code again. Seems like they don’t want ‘hackers’ or other parties using peoples social code for security purposes. Are you also having these issues? and do I solve this issue by input the social security code again? or is there another method that I can bypass this by? Thanks~
Why do I receive “QUESTDESCRIPTION_10003090_NAME” in the English Patch? Is it an error of haven’t translated yet?
I’m stuck at Perion Chapter because of this…
@Phong: You’re most welcome 🙂
Hello, had a quick question on the most recent update.. I am doing dungeon finder and such on a daily and getting items 3/3 everyday. I wanted to know if killing mobs is still a thing to gain constant exp or is it better to do dungeons and such over and over again. thanks
Thank you for english patch.
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (March 10, 2018) is now available for download.
Hey can you help me? I purchased a verified account today but when I log in an error appeared and says “You accessed the wrong path”. Though I followed your step carefully….

And the last is the counting from some mission stopped at random figure. Hope you will fix these bug soon. Thank for your patch work tho xD
@Ayumilove I hope you can fix this bug soon. I really appreciate your work!
Everytime i talk to a merchant with the english patch note applied, the game instantly closes. Is this a bug?
Hi could update the patch Please, I love your work, it helped me a lot.
Hi could update the patch Please, I love your work, it helped me a lot.
I am curious on how you compile the english patch together? or you get it from somewhere else? Any information on how I can create my own english patch or a reference guide I am more than willing to learn and try to understand to best of my ability!
Currently playing still and have some trouble with translation of some things but figuring things out mojority of the time! I also wanted to say thank you for the amazing guide and your website in providing information on how to sign up and download links with more extensive information on other subjects. Your website has been the most useful compared to using orange mushroom and Basil for Ms2 referencing, even the chinese MS2 Blog has links down after years of inactivity!
@Exio: I have updated the English patch today. 🙂
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (February 04, 2018) is now available for download.
The patch is not working correctly it gets me stuck and maplestory 2 char screen . Using the old one till the new one gets updated —thanks
Was the patch broken with the newest update? If so when will an updated patch be expected?
Can someone tell me how to use cms2 patch plox 🙂
@Jack: I’ll try to perform a download of movie/song/pdf to slow it down.
@Rak: Thanks for sharing the CMS2 English patch!
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (January 16, 2018) is now available for download.
does anyone know why my english patch is broken, like sometimes it says scriptname and a code and i can’t move on with the story because half says english and half says korean and i don’t know wha the quest is trying to tell me. Is there anyway this can be fixed?
updated patches for cms2 from the creator
Is there a way to permanently untick the preloader box, It is going to fast for me to actually click it
ok i fixed it .. i think overwriting the files for me does not work so what i did was deleting the actual xml files and then extract the zip into Data folder ,, ran it as eu then switched it kr and now its working .. thanks !
still not working, idk whats wrong .. when u run switch.bat do all of the xml files shows en or kr like the video ? or only 2 of them ? cuz i tried running it as admin and normally and i still face the same problem :/
When u open client it should be on “en” files.
after client does its job, u switch it to “kr” files.Then start playing.
its working for me atm.
Hey, the english patch is not doing anything for me ( downloaded it yesterday ) , tried EN to KR and KR to EN and its not working, just to confirm should i let it patch with EN on or KR on? what should be on before i open the client? and what should be on before i start the game, im sorry im just confused been trying since yesterday..
thanks in advance!
@all: Happy New Year 2018! MapleStory2 English Patch (January 02, 2018) is now available for download.
@BuffetRaider: Thanks for the feedback! I have updated the English patch. The download link is for English data translation which does not include game content update such as graphics and audio. Therefore, it will require a few minutes for your game client to download those game updates.
@Addendum: I have tested it today and the English patch is still working fine. Please post a video on the steps you have taken and share with me via contact section or here.
Addendum: English patch isn’t doing anything. I’ve tried doing it exactly as prescribed in the video and readme, and in the opposite order just for the sake of completion. No effect.
Can you update the game client files you’ve provided on the google drive somehow? Those three files took me about ten minutes to download, but after starting the launcher for the first time I’ve been patching for over an hour so I don’t think the files you’ve provided are current. This would probably be going a lot faster if I were getting my 10 MB/sec that I usually get. It’s chugging along at 0.5-3 MB/sec. Most likely that’s the result of the files being physically located in Korea, but still.
The latency is around 270ms ~ 350ms.
You can check the image link below.
If want to reduce the latency, would need to install a VPN software.
@Wee Hong: What is the latency that you are experiencing with China MapleStory 2?
I see. Then it is much more better if compare with China Maplestory.
I will give it a try.
@WeeHong: MS2 KR latency below 200ms
How much is your latency while playing MS2 KR?
@Jinsoku i tried on CMS2 it works but some and most of my eq went missing when i launch with english patch, but when i revert back to Chinese, all items came back, any idea whats wrong?
@Ellsu: I have updated MapleStory2 English patch. Merry Christmas!
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (December 19, 2017) is now available for download.
Hi AyumiLove! I just downloaded the english patch but it doesnt seem to be working for me! I’ve tried a couple of times switching the .en to .kr but the game still launches in korean ): any tips as to how I can fix this? or could it be because they went into a new ‘patch’
First step didn’t go through completely for some reason.
Maplestory2(Name will be in chinese) > Client > Config (Make sure user has all privileges)
Edit GameOption.xml – Find: language languageIndex=”3″ voiceIndex=”3″
Change into: language languagePath=”EN” languageIndex=”0″ voiceIndex=”3″
The english patch works for CMS2 as well.
1. Maplestory2(Name will be in chinese) > Client > Config (Make sure user has all privileges)
Edit GameOption.xml – Find: language languageIndex=”3″ voiceIndex=”3″
Change into: language languagePath=”EN” languageIndex=”0″ voiceIndex=”3″
2. Maplestory2(Name will be in chinese) > Client > Data (Make sure user has all privileges)
Same steps as KR client. Open launcher get to server select, choose server, switch xml files to english, then start.

@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (November 16, 2017) is now available for download.
@Rak: KMS2 performs many updates within a month, therefore patch will be outdated after a few weeks time. The link provided can help user, however, once the bandwidth is used up, no one will be able to download the patch from that link. Therefore, the patch provided here is to alleviate this issue.
How come the patch is always so outdated?
Wouldn’t it better to link where it comes from so that people can make it themselves?
I don’t know if you can do that, but maybe you can share a tool to decrypt and reencrypt the XML file. With a tool like that we’ll be able to use the KMS2 english patch into the CMS2 client. (If the tool is working with the CMS2 clients :/)
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (October 28, 2017) is now available for download.
@Kaizik: I’m currently playing KMS2 instead of CMS2.
Will the English Patch be available for Chinese Maplestory 2?
Thank you very much for all you have done!
@JD: Hi, the English patch is not available yet. It will be uploaded here once it ready. KMS2 recently has been uploading new patches within the past few days apart.
Any news on the new patch?
Thank you Ayumilove for responding. I hope you’re able to fix it soon. Nevertheless, good work on the patch.
@Matt: You will need to switch from Korean to English patch everytime when you launch the game at the mini window popup. After exiting the game, you will need to switch back from English to Korean, so it can update the Korean data with the new game contents.
@Gaston, @Simon, @Hara: Thanks for the notice! I have tried today and the English patch is not working due to some new updates in the Korea MapleStory 2. I’ll be releasing a new working English patch as soon as its available!. In the meantime, you can play the game without the English patch. I have tested the korean data and its working fine as usual.
The game won’t start for me or my friend 🙁
I am having the same issue as Hara. Game just wont start.
Can’t download the new English Patch (Oct 11 2017), my internet is working fine but whenever I download it it says Failed – Network Error on Google Chrome.
Also when I patch the game to English, is it only a one time thing? Or do I have to patch it to English every time I open the game?
Is it me or game dont want to start up with new eng.patch being activated ? (It works just fine when i start it without activating the patcher aka on korean language .)
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (October 11, 2017) is now available for download.
about the patch, wouldn’t it be good to have a patcher similar to the one used for pso2’s english patch? i’m happy with the great work you’ve done so far but seems like a good route to go if it’ll be long term since we have no sign of an english release :O
keep up the amazing work btw~!
Ayumi, as you did the Korean translation and which program you used, I’m trying to do a translation for the Chinese server.
@Syryniss: Not normal though. Previously the old quest is working but somehow I think there were some recent changes that made it buggy. I’m not sure whether its the game content that has changed (quest structure description) that prevents the English patch from translating it correctly.
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (October 02, 2017) is now available for download.
Hi. I started playing today and everything seems to be working fine with the patch, except that there are no quest lines. It only shows a message like in this screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/Md7Xn
Is this normal?
@Ayumilove: If you kindly ask the guy who does the translations will he give you the tools to decrypt the m2d and m2h files 0.o?
Any news on an English patch for CMS2?
@Animatrix: Currently, there isn’t any English patch created for CMS2 yet.
I wonder if there will be an english patch for CMS2 o.0
thanks for the update

I’m been playing MapleStory 2 for three days. I found some problems with missing datas about NPC’s conversation and Quest name when I was Lv.31 – 50. It started happen at Scion of Light(Story Quest) on Lv.31 and from Lv.31 on…
What can I suppose to do with them??
Here picture is – http://prntscr.com/gf83sc
@lemonish: Please record a video of the steps you have taken and send to my contact page so I can guide you from there.
@Eruptable: I have tested just now and the English patch is still working as expected. Try re-extracting the file from zip to replace the one in your MapleStory2 data folder, and repeat the steps as mentioned in the guide.
keeps on .en
its in the right map reinstalled game
reinstalled game cuz it kept download xml.m2d
now it is at 100% and i can load game, but nothing change with the switch program
I just used the English patch but then my character froze so I reloaded the game. Then my client updated (8/30/17). Ever since this the English patch doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried everything and am about to give up, Any ideas what I could do to resolve this?
@AAA: Sorry, I do not understand the issue you are facing. Are you referring to your English Xml.m2d being overriden whenever you “switch” and then click “start” in the website?
hey file Xml.m2d it new download everytime. i press the switch patch and Run File Checker
@Riddik: Thanks for the notice! I have fixed the file extension. Please try again by replacing the data files with the one provided in the download link! I have tested it today and the English patch works as expected 🙂
Maplestory 2 also just had another patch (9:00am -11:00am GMT+9). Not sure if this is the cause of the issue with the English patch.
Thank you for updating the English patch. However, I still can’t get it to work. After extracting the zip files into /data, the .kr file and .en file appear at the same time both before and after switching. And when only single .kr file and single .en file appear, the game manager rewrites over them at the launch. When switching, I got both (.kr+.kr) and (.en+.en) files appeared and the error “can’t find feature file” happens. Please help and thank you for your time.

@Marty: Thanks for the notice! I have updated the English Patch download link.
After the update, the eng patch is not working properly anymore.
Hey there 😀 … What’s going on with KMS2 after the last patch? My commands keep resetting and I cannot use my skills anymore …. what’s going on?
@Rak: Both methods work for the English patch 🙂 ~ edit: Using my method, it reduces the burden on his server. Once his server reaches the limit, everyone will not be able to download.
I was looking at the english patch from https://www.reddit.com/r/KMS2/comments/3zhjk9/english_patch_in_the_works/, and the files that come from it look pretty similar. I was wondering if there was any benefit to your method versus that one?
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (August 17, 2017) is now available for download.
@Rak: The popup is basically the ad. I have switch ad provider, you will not see popup ads but its integrated in the article itself.
Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I think there is a some mal code injected into your website. When I click on links, there is almost always a popup to another website or an ad.
Hi, is there a skill guide for knight? I clicked the tab for skill guide but in the page, it’s just about skills of knight. is there a guide on what I should add and all?
I have no idea whats wrong then. My patch just randomly stopped working, and it was working yesterday
@Sharif Ismail: I have tested today and the English patch is still working. Could you try to replace the English patch with the one provided here (30-7-2017)?
I believe the game has been updated and the patch is now not working
Hey guys I just started MS2. I from the U.S and would like to get involved with an english speaking guild/community within the game. Maybe some people to provide me with some key info and tips. Anyboy have guild space or a community available?
@dgnunch: Yup, it still works. I have tested the English patch yesterday 🙂
OOPS! It still works! For anyone wondering: you have to redownload the english patch if it isn’t working and overwrite it. The game must’ve changed the files somehow! It still works!
Does the patch still work? It worked for me yesterday but I’m doing the same thing today and the english isn’t showing up. When I tried to login this morning there was a little update I think so that might have be the reason? Otherwise I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
So, what does this ( http://i.imgur.com/mzevomV.png ) actually say? lmao
Is there a working method to use a controller? I’ve got xpadder and it doesn’t seem to be working.
@Wind: I have tested today and the English patch is working as expected 🙂
I don’t think the new English patch is working
The Chinese MS2 next closed beta(without data deleting) starts on 8/30. But before it starts, you need to enter the lucky draw. If you were in the past chinese closed beta, you get automatic access, otherwise its up to luck.
@Sharif Ismail: The download link for the game client and English patch is available here. You will just need a Korean account which you can get it from 3rd party websites. Hopefull that helps 🙂
Hey, is this game playable in the U.S Ayumi. Ive been wanting to download it for awhile
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (July 30, 2017) is now available for download.
Hey guys I just downloaded the Chinese Maplestory 2 this morning and I’m kinda stuck in the launcher, I can’t input my QQ username and QQ password. Does anyone know how to bpass this?

Love you <3
@Ayumilove, new MS2 English Patch Pls, Thanks
Love you <3
@Ayumilove, Now eng patch is not work pls fix
Love you ?<3
everytime there is a patch, the eng patch has to be updated, so those having tech issues should try without the eng patch and wait patiently for the eng patch update.
i just get a black screen! is a fix coming out soon?
This morning I tried to log in and it went past the nex video right before the server screen. The server screen was no longer visible for me and my screen was black.
Is this just due to maintenance and that screen is on their end. Or do I now have a resolution issue since this patch?
I can still hear the music.
@Ayumilove, Now eng patch is not work pls fix
Can i copy-paste the installed client on my pc to my friend’s so he doesn’t need to redownload the patch again?
Have tried, but the client still downloaded all the patch from the start.
Sorry, all the slashes disappeared from my previous comment. The address is:
The line you need to add is still the same.
Of course, just go to your hosts file at:
and add this line at the bottom:
@Amitai: Hi, could you share your method on blocking updates from Nexon?
I don’t understand why you bother switching the translation files every time you launch the game.
It is far easier to just drag in the translation files and then block updates from Nexon to prevent them from being overwritten.
Hey I’ve been trying to complete the chicken feather quest level 33 given to you by Growler and have no idea what to do. It’s extremely frustrating. Someone please help!
@Danny: Contact the person who provided you the verified kr account as they are the one who uses the Korean phone number.
Hi Ayumi and everyone.
We’re a small english Guild looking for teammates !
Feel free to rejoin us in our guild: Kawaiii
Or ad me in friend: Livie =)
Thanks again Ayumi, without you I could not play to this awsome game !
They placed my verifed kr account on protective mode which reqs me to re verify with phone number. Pleasse help
They placed my verified account on protective mode and needs me to re verify with phone number please help
To start the game, you have to launch it from the website. If it’s installing again, it may be adding a new patch, or the website can’t find your game installation and is reinstalling.
They changed the system on how to choose classes. When you create a new char, you can choose the class from the screen.You can no longer make a beginner class to be recruited, you choose your class from the beginning and it starts off with quests.
Do you know how to get a class in place with the castle? Every time try and talk to the heavy gunner, she doesn’t recruit me and no box shows up with the info. etc. Do I have to do a specific quest or something?
So yesterday I started playing MS2 for the first time. I downloaded the game manager and everything is fine! Now today, I try and start the game, and it is trying to install the manager AGAIN and I don’t understand why I have to wait several hours again just to play!
Do you possibly know what to do about this type of situation?
The game should still be working, though you might have to use korean during merit event. For the main gameplay , you just have to first let the loader complete using the korean files to 100%, and then switch to english (when .kr files show, it is english mode). If it still doesn’t work, then re-download the patch and let the loader run to 100% for the new korean files.
They made a small patch and the patch does not work anymore
@Tal: I’m not sure. Perhaps you can ask the seller to guide you? Changing password will require verification via e-mail. (The e-mail account associated with the account).
thanks , I worked
How would I go about changing the password on my newly bought account?
@Slavin: It is working as usual. Please try again by overriding the current English patch from the one in the zip file. Ensure the progress bar reaches 100% with auto-start disabled before you switch to English mode. Otherwise, it will be overriden with Korean data.
its still working? I covered your patch files > switch it to kr mode > start from website > stop the auto start(but it still auto downloaded the data files??) > switch to en mode, and its still korean did i do it wrong?
For anyone who feels like sometimes the patch is doing odd stuff, every korean thursday, (wednesday in america) they patch the game every week. Ayumilove does a good job deploying patches every week she can, but usually, small patches won’t affect the game too much, and large patches will break the game significantly. If anyone wants to add me my IGN for my main is : ‘IgnorantSlut’
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (July 02, 2017) is now available for download.
@andy or anyone, please add me Lacrancia. i am alone playing in MS2…. sob…sob
@Na, thanks for the info friend 😀
Thank you very much Na . So we will just wait :]. Man the heights and depths we gamers go through to just play awesome games.
@Andy @Izzy &any anyone else, feel free to add me IGN: LoveSkill
For those people that are bald, naked and cannot do anything. The current English patch is not suited for the game. Therefore, until ayumilove posts the next update for the english patch do not play the game with it. New characters will be unable to be played at all due to an event.
@Andy add me GDsKimchi, I need a friend as well!
same as Keelyah, is there any fix for this?
Same like Keelyah
I did everything correctly …however in character creation every time i create a new character am bald and naked and cant choose any customization options and i am stuck on that screen until i alt tab and exit out Please help me when ever you can :[
hello just re playing MS2 korean while waiting for the west…
thank you for ayumi for the hard work for the patch and etc…
just wondering is there any english people still playing? need friend and i see the game have less people speaking english now…
@Daisuke: Thanks for notifying about the new update in MS2. I have tested on my side and it seems its still working. However, there are some items that will have blank descriptions. I’ll provide the latest English patch once its available.
I’ve made so many new characters, I know the Epic quest line by heart so I’m just doing that until English patch is out so I can keep going on my main. 😛
Can’t wait! Thanks for everything Ayuymilove! <3
Whos waiting for the new patch 2 😀
after patch for 29/6/2017, the english patch is not function able. please help…… unable to login…..
Are you making a new English patch for the update on MS2? And if so when do you think the estimated time for it to be out for the public? Thanks 🙂
@Izzy: Thanks for letting me know about the solution that works for you 🙂
I got it to work finally! Even though I did not get an error message, the permissions on the “data” folder had all the check boxes unchecked and that was the issue.
Thanks for replying and for the patch 🙂
I downloaded and used the eng patch you have and also followed the steps and it is still not switching for me. Do you have any other tips?
@Izzy: I just logon today on MS2 with the English patch provided here and it works fine. Could you try replacing the existing English patch with the one from the zip file?
Hi Ayumilove, Just updated MS2 and the english patch isnt working with it! Just letting you know 🙂 Thank you!!
@Elysion: Press F5 to refresh the windows file explorer page and see whether it helps refreshing the file name after running the switch.bat – if it still doesn’t work, try reextracting the files from the zip again. I have tested on my side and its working fine. There are no changes applied to the switch.bat unless the name of the files have been set unexpectedly.
the switch.bat file isnt switching the files.
@Mako: Thanks for the notice!
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (June 19, 2017) is now available for download.
Hi Ayumi there is a current event that cannot be accessed because of the English patch. May you please update it 🙂 Thank you!
Whoa, you are right, the english patch is the problem. Now I can continue my quest.
Thanks a lot 😀
Yes it is that house. Maybe try without english patch. If it still doesn’t work then quests are bugged probably.
You mean this house ? http://imgur.com/a/hZfBl
I pressed space but nothing happened (or maybe I can’t enter that house)
Is there something I must do so I can enter the house?
You need to enter a house in Tria right next to the portal that leads into the map you’re in. It will trigger a cutscene then you can enter that house and another cutscene will happen.
There is paper on the table but I can’t interact with it
Then I hit every object by pressing space but no interaction has been made.
Usually when I hit the teleportation arrow, mini window dialog with text “space” appear to make interaction but in this room, every objects doesn’t trigger any mini window dialog.
Also I already re-take quest and no changes
Did I miss something?
I’m pretty sure you need to interact with the objects in the house till you find a clue ( a piece of paper or something) and then go to the area which it tells you. If the paper/objects or area doesn’t show, try forfeiting the quest and taking it again.
I am a new player for MS 2. Thanks a lot for your guide.
Anyway I stuck at this quest http://imgur.com/a/TbiAa.
Already go inside the house but nothing happened, I don’t know what to do to clear this quest.
Anyone can help me?
Thank you very much!! <3
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (June 14, 2017) is now available for download.
English Patch stopped working all of a sudden, I used it once before and it worked fine but getting on today and doing the same thing I did yesterday, it just stay’s in Korean. Not sure if the game updated.
Hi ayumi, I cannot seem to get the english patch working. I’ve tried re-installing the patch and the game! It keeps giving me a patch that is 61mb and then when it launches it is in korean. Is the patch outdated. Can anyone help?
Does the english patch stop working after every update? Does the patch need to be update completely for it to work?
@Rak: Thanks for helping to answer the questions posted by others here! 🙂
@Tesla: I heard there is CMS2 (China MapleStory 2) Beta Testing is available to play. However, I did not follow up on the news for that.
@Ayumilove Thank you for answering my question! I wonder if you know the Chinese version of Maple Story 2 is coming up.
While you are in your house, press B -> Theme Deco
if not there, search for ‘ Fish Stand ‘ (these are case sensitive, without quotes)
I’m guessing by xml.en you mean the Xml.m2h / Xml.m2d files
1. Make sure the files are in the Data folder of your game (redownload the files first, incase corruption)
2. Before you start the game, it should have two files with .en endings
3. Next you start the game, uncheck the box, and let it fully load to 100%
4. Then you run switch.bat, and it should have 2 .kr file endings (refresh if there are 4)
5. Now you can start the game, it should be in english.
Hey, thanks for all the info !
Sadly, I can’t make the eng patch work 🙁
I run KMS2 from website, quickly untick the auto start button, wait until the loading is done, use the switch to put it in xml.en then start and it it still in korean 🙁
Any idea how to solve my problem ?
@Rak: I’ve been trying to complete the level 33 quest by Growler called “Children Complain Friendship” where it requires you to place a “Fish Stand” in your home, but I can’t find it anywhere. It’s not in my inventory and when I search in the home tab nothing pops up. I keep forfeiting it and re-accepting it in the hopes it just glitched, but nothing pops up in my inventory. When I use the dictionary, it says it can be found in the “Theme Decoration” section, but I can’t find it there ;-; I would greatly appreciate any help
@Rak thanks you very much, it works !
Damned ! you are great man
a french player.
@Rak thkssss it worksss ,u are my hero XDDDD
You can try [Arachna], friendly english speaking guild 😀
How can i find a English speaking guild?
@Tesla: During my time, we grind in a team against mobs and also do party quests for fast meso and EXP. I’m not sure what’s the current situation now with all the new updates released in MS2.
@Manuel: Sorry, I couldn’t help much MapleStory2 in-game quest since I seldom play it and I’m focusing on MapleStory1 now.
what is the fastest way to level up for players reached to level 50
@Rak ok thks i will try it
Hi,ayumi i’m stuck in the same quest as @winni13w can you help me pelase?
to complete New Bait, I believe you need to place a chicken farm(press ‘B’ -> life skills materials) inside your house and use it once. This will give you a chicken feather and should complete that quest
you might have gotten the English files overwritten with the Korean ones, try to re-download the files and follow the instructions in the video.
It worked St first time but after tht It doesn’t work anymore ,how can I solve the problem?
thanks Ayumi for your good job here and for english pack !
otherwise i have the same problem as @thomas “. I recently got back in and am doing quests and I’m stuck on one of them. It’s called “The New Bait” (Level 33) given by Growler (the cat guy). If you could help, that’d be great! ”
the cat say “Bringing chickens in my house”
requierment : chickens feathers 0/1
city : Tria
First time I block on a quest , if someone know what to do…
Ayumilove senpaii~~~ I am new to MS2, i saw many people using piano to play Twice’s songs. Where can I get it?
My level 56 epic(Yellow) quest is bugged. I cannot complete part 16/23 of the quest as i cannot talk to allon as the instance is gone. Is there a way to fix this bug as i want to get the skill points for finishing the quests.
Yayyy! Thank you ayumi!
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (June 4, 2017) is now available for download.
@ForbiddenM, play without the Eng patch, it does’nt work well.
full of bugs and crushes cuz Ayumi didn’t update it yet.
read Ayumi’s comment, just wait a lil bit.
Hi, I am stuck at the tutorial page, I finished the tutorial, but when I am trying to leave the portal, I wasn’t allow to. When I press space on the portal, it says: Still unable to enter the area. I tried making another character, it doesn’t even gave me a basic weapon. HELP ME PLEASE. I’m like TT .
How to make meso and how to have a pet

Gambahteh Ayumi Senpai！
@EarthYaHoO: Thanks for informing about the English patch is not working! I’ll provide the updated English patch as soon as possible once its available.
For those just keep asking about map this or that
The 5/31 update is a season change so the update is really big
The Eng Path will take some time so pls just play in Korean and use google translate for the time being
@Ayumilove: I use patch eng but map not load and sometime game crash
Plss Fix , Thank you
I was wondering how you update the english patch every update so maybe users can update it themselves after a new update.
The maps are not working at all
I guess its because of 5/31 patch.
Can you fix it?
The English patch doesn’t work well
I keep dcing, I can’t even finish the tutorials
How to fix it?
ya the map is not working at all when i useing eng patch but i change back to korean it back to normal and i useing eng patch loading to victoria island will auto shut down the game
@Sheep: Thanks for the notice. I’ll be providing the English patch once its available!
Is it just me, or is the world map not working? When i open the map its empty, can’t even take a cab to places.
Hello will there be patch note translations as this is a big patch and i’d like to know the details of the stuff that is updated!!
@Jayden Tham: Personally, I would stream a 4K/HD video to slow down the internet connection, thereby slow down the progress bar in the auto-launch window. Not sure if it will work for you though, but you can try it out. The other thing is, you can anticipate where the checkbox button is, and place your mouse cursor there and get ready to click on it. These are the 2 methods I usually use when the auto-launcher loads too fast XD
@ohsnapos: Hi, the English patch available here I have tested working previously. Currently, MS2 is having some maintenance from 4:00 am to 1:00 pm on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 (GMT+9) = Time in South Korea ~ Once the MS2 server is accessible, I’ll try the English patch again to see if it works. If it doesn’t, then I’ll upload a new patch and comment in the comment section about the new update 🙂
@Ayumilove will you be updating the eng patch for the new patch?
Thank you for all the guides you have created and updated.
I have a question on Veracent for Maplesea. Is there a way to get into the castle?
I have the garden 1, main hall, garden 3 scrolls, but they all don’t work. Only the scroll to Veracent can work.
I have been trying to find a way in.
Hope you can help.
Hey ayumi, my game manager loads too fast and I’m having a hard time trying to stop the auto launch. Is there any way around it?
GOT It ! THANKS.
Hey Ayumi, last I checked a month ago your english patch wasnt working on the switch. Is it up and running now?
Really grateful. Many thanks
@ohsnapos: Thanks for the reply!
@Ayumilove: all i did was give full permissions to the data folder itself which allowed all files inside the folder to be accessible
@ohsnapos: How did you fix the problem you were encountering?
update: i have fixed the problem, thanks ^^
hey Ayumilove, I’m having a problem with the switch.bat not switching the m2d.en files to m2d.kr even thou i have followed your guide and given it all the permissions
@generalzzz: It’s best to perform quest as it provides more EXP to level up faster. Some quest provides some large amount of meso too.
hey ayumilove did you think should i farm or do quest?
Do you have an english guide on how to change (nexon) password?
Thank you for this awesome MS2 homepage.
@Sam: For me, what I did to slow down the internet speed is to download/watch 4K content so the auto-run might slow down by a bit. It works for me though, not sure it will work for you, but you can try this method out.
@Dean Derick: Search for “MapleStory2 account” and the top 3 website could help you with your issue.
@generalzzz: Hi, I’m not sure about that error message. However, I just noticed that the guide above only shows 2 installer files to be downloaded but actually it was 3 files. I have added the 3rd missing file into the article. Maybe the issue is related to this.
@Daniel Shin: Hi, I have updated the MapleStory2 English Patch (May 18, 2017). Thanks for your notice!
@Derrick: Hi, I have updated the MapleStory2 English Patch (May 18, 2017). Thanks for your notice!
hello ayumi,you know why this happen?
[05/18 17:04:06] Sfx File Size is bigger than origin. It is digital signed maybe.
[05/18 17:04:39] Split Compressed File CRC Mismatch : E:\maplestory 2\MapleStory2_Install.z01 / local(3700840802) / nfo(2953220734)
[05/18 17:04:39] ErrCode : 15000 – 207 – 0
Hi Ayumi, great write-up! But the English patch isn’t working until now… T_T
English patch doesn’t seem to be working at the moment. 🙁
Hey, quick question. What happens if I can’t even click on the autorun game when the launcher pops open. It’s too quick for me and even if I do somehow press it, it still runs the program anyways. So I cant do the switch.bat since it wont give me the chance to do it THEN press play.
Hey Ayumi! I was wondering. Can you recommend a place that is trusted to purchase a maplestory 2 verified account?
@Monarch k: Could you post a video recording on how you setup the English patch? You can host it on Youtube and send me the link via the contact form. From there I can check and correct the steps to make it work 🙂
I followed the steps according to your videos. But once maple story2 starts, it’s still in korean
@ykyk: The official game is downloaded from Nexon. You will need the official game to play MapleStory2. Apply the English patch on to the official game so it can translate the in-game text/description for you to understand the game content better.
The english patch doesn’t work for me. Is it because i download the game from nexon?
@Kristian Magandi: Probably the English data has been overridden with KMS data when you run the game. Try overriding the existing data files with the one from the zip file. Make sure to load the game with Korean data first, once done with the untick the checkbox at the pop up window, switch to English data, then only press the blue button. Once you exit MS2 game, you need to manually switch it back to Korean data again. Otherwise, English data will be overridden. I notice many MS2 players face this same issue.
it doesnt work 🙁 tried all the steps and still in korean
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (May 13, 2017) is now available for download.
@KuroYouta: Based from my personal experience with all of the jobs, I feel that Wizard and Heavy Gunner are great for both mobbing and solo bosses. Berserker is hard to grind especially its a melee range aka close combat job.
Also as a quick question, what class would you consider as a pretty good Mobbing and Solo Bossing Class?
I was contemplating on making something else other than a Berserker; however, since the guide that was reading on your site; did mention Berserker are like one of the best DPS class.
Thanks 🙂 !
—————– comment merged —————–
I’m currently playing as a Berserker; It’d be amazing if I can actually see what each descriptions are for that class. Because some of the translated text are not as readable/hard to understand.
But I do want to give props to group that did it; all thanks to them, that I’m able to play without having too much trouble :)!
@KuroYouta: Thanks for sharing your solution about VPN that works for you 🙂
@WuNeng: You can verify MS2 account using e-mail if it’s already pre-registered by third party users. If you create the account by yourself, I believe it requires Korean phone number.
@KuroYoutua: Yes, which class guide in MS2 are you looking forward too? I’ll update that with higher priority.
@Clamos: Yes, the MapleStory2 English patch steps is required to be performed everytime you start the game.Regarding English speaking communities, I’m not uncertain as I do not follow it much.
Is the language patch process necessary everytime you start the game? Also are there any English speaking communities in kms2?
Will the Class Guides for MS2 be updated soon?
How to verify MS2 account
the current VPN I use, is not free. But it works pretty damn good. it’s called VyprVPN. the first year is 60$. You do have a 3 day trial period though.
@Harry: Sorry I do not have any VPN recommendation as I do not use any VPN on myself. If the account requires re-verify, perhaps someone already logged into that account with a different IP address. A new account that has not been used before will not have this issue.
Ayumi, do you have any Vpn for recommendation ? MS2 require me to re-verify my account, but i couldn’t because i bought it online, and the supplier insist of using a vpn.
Bought it here http://www.seagm.com
@Koopa: Then you will need to quickly uncheck the checkbox to prevent it from auto-login into the game! Once it stops there, you can switch from Korean to English patch. Then press blue button to continue into the game.
When I login to the website, I don’t see the white Nexon Game manager window (with the two options). Instead it brings be directly to the black Nexon Game manager window (one with the blue button).
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch has been updated (May 4, 2017)
@KuroYouta: If the account was used at least once, and someone else logged into that account in a different IP, you will receive that message. Another one that I encounter was if the account wasn’t logged for a long time (probably 3-4 months), then they will require you to reauthenticate, otherwise it will not allow you to transfer/drop items.
at mmos.com but everything solved. they provided me with another account. And now I’m using a VPN so hopefully that’ll solve the issue
@KuroYouta where did you buy/get that accout?
I had a slight problem… I recently got a KMS Acct, a brand new one, I’d assume…
While I was playing… it booted me out, and said the following…
“Your account is suspected of unauthorized compromised account.. Protection mode.. After your certification, it is possible to use the game as normal”
what do I do ;A; ….
My installer is stuck at 0%. No progress is being shown. i downloaded all 3 files and placed it in the same folder. Need help. Thanks
Thank You Aymilove 😀
OK I will do that 😀
After I posted that thing about taking a while to see my posts, I kinda figured that that may be what it was 😀
@Angela: You will need the MapleStory2_Install.exe, MapleStory2_Install.z01, MapleStory2_Install.z02 (These 3 files place in the same directory, and their file extension shouldn’t be change to avoid issues with the installation).
@Angela: It’s due to the caching process in the website. It will appear after few minutes once the server kicks in to update the comment section 🙂
I do wonder why my questions and helps are not posted right away?
Do they have to be approved, first?
I saw Scrolls for that . . . I think I saw them in the cash shop. Look under scrolls, weapons, armor or equipment.
I cannot remember where I saw them, but they do have, oh I forget what kind of scrolls they are called, but they do have them?
Did you try to search for them on ayumilove.net, this site?
Do a search for scrolls and than see what it comes up with. Read each one’s description, and than you should find the one that you need.
I hope that this helps 😀
When Equipment is untradable. How to make it tradable. My weapon+10 I want to sell it on BM but not tradable. Help please…
I will do that.
How do I change the one file, which is #2 back over to it’s original file? Or should I just d/l it again. I turned it into a movie file and now it has a movie strip over it, so I think I would mess things up if I left it that way?
@Angela: Download all MapleStory 2 installation part (1+2+3) and place them in the same folder. Then run the main installer with the “exe” file-extension.
@Guille994: It’s the same English patch with updated content of new item description whenever MS2 releases new content. It’s still quite okay to understand the description for me though.
Is the English patch posted here the same that released a year ago more or less? I ask that because that patch was a bit..difficult to understand, it wasn’t very good haha
If it’s a new patch and it’s better may I return to the game… 🙂
I installed Part one of MapleStory2.
I am having trouble with parts 2 and 3 of the installation, though?
It wouldn’t open for me but gave me an option to open it with one of the Movie Viewers that Windows 10 has. So I tried that and it said that it does not support it.
Now, I was just wondering, what do I open parts 1 and 2 of MapleStory2 with?
@King: Yes, they have changed significantly. It will take some time for me to update all the skills based in-game. 🙂
All the jobs skill are different from your skill guide here. They change?
@Guilty: Search for this keyword “maplestory2 account” on google and the first result should lead you to the answer that you are looking for 🙂
Thank you =)
Thank you for ur hard work!!!
Could someone explain me how i can hide my hat?
@km: I have updated MapleStory2 English patch (April 21, 2017). It’s now available for download!
Hi there. I was wondering if its possible to help out with the English translation.
does the english patch need to be updated? mailbox and current event arent working
Hello there, i’m from brazil we had our server for MS1 but our server was closed long ago : /. I Still love MS and i wanna play MS2, do u know any trustworthy website which i can buy an korean verified account? thx so much (i used to see your videos since looooong ago xD).
@Player: I’m currently running on Windows 10 Pro 64bit and able to run MapleStory2 without any issues. Yeah, I created a guild called “Ayumilove”, but wasn’t active in MS2 right now since busy with work.
@ayumilove Thanks for the reply! You really helped a lot thanks! :))
@Jouu: You do not share EXP in MapleStory2. You just need to hit the monster once to gain full EXP when the monster is defeated by anyone else. Currently upgrading skills does not require Crystal Fragments anymore (No need to use red/blue/green cyrstals). Just need to level up more to get sufficient Skill Points to add into your skill to unlock/level-it-up.
Hi Ayumi thanks for the guide and everything! I’m enjoying my maple right now 🙂
Btw I have some few question to ask you. How do I upgrade my skill using crystal fragment? I press K it show my skill list there is only + and – to up my skill.
And another question I party with my friends exp doesn’t share. We are lvl 21 on 23 monster.
@Ayumilove : I’ve re-installed my OS to Windows 7 64bit and it works fine now. Somehow MS2 was unable to launch Xigncode and Black cipher when It was on Windows 10 64bit. I’ve disabled and even at a stage removed all Antivirus but it still happens. Thanks for the help regardless.
Do you have a guild in the game that’s AyumiLove? What’s the criteria to join? I’ve signed up for it but haven’t got accepted. 😀
@Classic_steel: Download the English patch data file provided here, and then replace the one in MapleStory2. Then try the game again using the Korean data.
Note: I assume that you did not perform any modifications to the Windows host file. If you did, please revert those changes to its default.
@Player: I noticed that you have posted the error “Winlicense (Address: 0x1f6b830)” on both MapleStory and MapleStory2 sections.
1. Which game that you run causes this error to pop up? (example: MapleStory1 or MapleStory2)
2. What is your computer specs? (example: CPU/RAM/GPU/HDD-SSD)
3. What operating system are you currently running? (example: Windows 10 Home/Pro 32/64bit)
4. When did you first notice this error? (Did the game previously run successfully login and in-game?)
1. Before you start game, switch to Korean data.
2. Start game and wait for the window to pop up.
3. Quickly uncheck the box that auto-starts game. Switch to English data.
4. Then manually start game from the pop up window.
Note: If it does not show in English ingame, exit the game, extract the data from the zip and perform the steps 1 to 4 again.
Note-2: If you see Xml.m2d.en and Xml.m2h.en means its currently set as English data disabled)
Note-3: If you see Xml.m2d.kr and Xml.m2h.kr means its currently set as Korean data disabled)
@Carmen: I have tested it today by login into the game. The MapleStory2 English patch is still working as usual. 🙂
English patch is not working anymore after the update today.
Changing into english. Everytime I log in I have press again and again like the video you shown?
@Jouu: You can google search “maplestory 2 accounts” and the website that sells it is on the first link.
Where can I buy maplestory2 activate account?
Hi Ayumi I have problem on registering NX account on ( Your identity ) SK telecom LG U+ those stuff im stuck there… Is there possible to make a Guide for new people register account.
@Optive: I have uploaded a new version of the patch above (April 13, 2017). Tested working on my side 🙂
Hey I’m having the same issue, Just started playing and haven’t been able to change the in game language

Hi, Im stuck at this quest “Production learn” Rachel ore pendant making (0/1). Basically i have spoken to Rachel and purchase an ore worth of 1000. But it just doesnt complete. Any idea on this?
Anyone getting Winlicense (Address: 0x1f6b830) error?
Anyone here playing on the KR server from Singapore? How’s the latency like?
I have some problem with ENG patch guide, after I loged in my ID/pass (@0.14 sec on you vid) sometime it show pop-up but sometime not.
How can I resolve?
When it didn’t show that pop-up, I can’t switch or use ENG patch.
Best English patch thanks @ayumilove, now I can finally understand most things in the game.
@ayumilove okay i’ll try :3 thanks for fast respon xD
@Xerik: Try again with the latest MapleStory2 English patch provided today.
@all: MapleStory2 English Patch (April 1, 2017) is now available for download.
I stuck if i will learn about harvesting in maplestory 2 if i use english patch, if i not use isn’t stuck ?, and many item not identified if i use the english patch, is it really so ?
I have something to ask about a certain quest when u hit lvl 30 u start getting a quest line from growler but the second quest from him is kinda impossible its something about a fish stand but i cant find it
Nevermind! It worked! I just had to keep trying by re-extracting English patch xml files over until it finally worked! Sorry and thank you!
Hi everyone and hi Ayumi! I am having a problem with the English patch.
It worked the first time, but every time I log in and run MS2, the client would start downloading the correct xml files over the English patch.
Is anyone having the same problem or is there a way I could possibly fix it?
I also tried to re-extract the xml files+switch into C:\Nexon\MapleStory2\Data but the client will patch over again. Thanks
Thanks for replying, as you have asked there is nothing in the process tab for the application of MapleStory2 when I try to start the game. This is the first time trying as I have not played it before and also the question regarding my computer specifications it should be more than capable of running the game. As the features are, i7 – 2600 CPU @ 3.40ghz, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 960. Plus the addition of trying to start the game on multiple web browsers such as Chrome, IE and Firefox.
@David: Hi, could you try opening the Task Manager window (right-click taskbar where the Start menu is lcoated, select “Start Task Manager”). Could you see any MapleStory2 application running in the background? Also, what is your computer specification? (CPU~Processor/GPU~graphic card/RAM~memory/Disk Space) This is to identify whether you computer is capable of running MapleStory2. Were you able to run it once successfully or is this your first time running the game?
Hey Ayumilove, I’m having trouble with launching the game where the game just never appears after the hackshield window. Would you happen to know a solution? Thanks.
Hi Ayumi, thanks for the review videos and the hard work. Can you please make a thread to rank classes that deal the most DPS to the least? Both in PvE and PvP. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just to give a rough idea for new players before making a character, thanks in advance.
when I use a Korean phone number it always has an error, why?!! just why?!
The link for the official client download gives me a pop window asking if I want to allow the new window to auto close, if I click no, it still closes, and then link does nothing. Help?
@NewPlayer: You’re most welcome. Do take note that the English patch isn’t perfect. Mails/Items that exist in latest patch may not be listed in the inventory when you’re on English patch, but it will be there when switched to Korean patch.
@Ayumilove Thank you for uploading the new English patch. I have been waiting weeks to play this game in English
@AgamenonxD: There aren’t any new English patch. However, I have tested with the available patch above, and it still works with MapleStory2.
So… no more patch 🙁 ?
Hello. Quite curious if you will be making a Golden Chest Location guide? I’m an avid fan of doing things for achievements and getting the Golden Chests for every location is one of the things I hope to complete. 🙂
@Jonas: I have used WTFast before for MapleStory and it does reduces the lag and speed up response time quite a bit. I’m not sure if it applies for MapleStory 2 since when I game on it, it’s pretty sufficient to not require WTFast. You could try it to check whether it helps with your FPS/lag. Hope that helps. 🙂
Is it safe to use WTFast to reduce ping on Maplestory 2?
@Ayumilove i send u mail to u, can u ask me plz?
Maybe weeks for english patch, been playing commando or without english patch on maplestory 2. It seems like there is a lot of content to translate.
Anyone know when the English Patch will be here?
I make a party with my friends to do quest, but we cant get in the same dungeon together. How to go to the same dungeon together ?
And how to share exp each other in party
@AgamenonxD: Hi, I’m not sure about that. It depends whether the person is available to translate the patch.
cant wait for the english patch :)!
@Ayuimilove, How many days more u think?
@pastuh: Hi, the English patch is not available yet as the translator has not published it yet. The download link will be updated once the English patch is ready.
Need working english patch 🙂
Hii @Ayumilove, ;w; I am really new player just started my new character today as I read now English patch is not working for a while. Do you have any website or video for me to finish a quest line?
He @Ayumilove, i wanna be a new player but idk how get english patch to can start 🙁
How many days can i use the english patch when i install?
Any news on how the english patch is coming along?
I was wondering if grinding is still the best training in this game. I recently got back in and am doing quests and I’m stuck on one of them. It’s called “The New Bait” (Level 33) given by Growler (the cat guy). If you could help, that’d be great!
@MathsDebation, @all : Currently English patch is not working. Will update the download link once the patch is available.
English patch not working
Would like mind start a new post to teach us how to make English patch?
@raindash: Personally for me I do not use any Korean VPN since my account is not shared with others. If the game account that was sold was used before (meaning it contains game characters of MapleStory2, or perhaps the player deleted all his character account and tries to sell it) then it is possible the system detects could detect it is login by a foreign user from different IP address. If you feel safer to use Korean VPN, you can use it to safeguard your account at a cost though. I’m not sure whether Korean VPN requires monthly fee.
I bought account but in the email it said “you’d better use kr vpn to connect”. You said it is not needed unless sharing an account. Is this considered sharing an account or should i ignore the message?
@bun: Try deleting both the kr/en existing data file and re-extract it out from the zip file (2017-02-19). I have tested today and the English translation patch is working fine.
@Ayumilove it’s not working ): still in korean.
@lNisMo @bun: The new English patch is now available for download (Feb 19, 2017)
im waiting new eng patch
how is the english patch doing? can we download the new one yet? 😀
@Albert @Mvtsui: Thanks for your feedback. Will be uploading the new patch for download once it’s available. The English translation patch is provided by someone else which I need to wait for him/her to prepare. I have not been on MS2 for quite some time.
Looking for a new Maplestory 2 English patch :D!
There are many new events coming up.
If you don’t mind, might as well make a new article teach us how to make English patch 😀
Hi, new patch coming soon Ayumi ?
@Yezreel: Please record a video of the steps you have taken and send me the URL of the video to the contact page for further assistance.
Hey Ayumilove i need help with the file thing swap with korean to english language when loading up the game. Ive tried overwriting the korean files then, switching to En. bc i need to when then starting game then switching back after its 100 perc. loaded as the video instructed but its just not working. it keeps loading up in korean still and idk what im doing wrong. can u pls be very specific to me about the steps of switching files and overwriting other files and copying and pasting and what not? please be VERY specific if u can. I really appreciate it… thank you for ur time..
@Chong: I’m not sure about that. I’ve moved on from MapleStory2 to other new games 🙂 Perhaps some other players here can help respond to your query.
@all: I have updated the English patch (Feb 1, 2017).
Ayumilove, hope you are able to reply. I want to ask how do i exchange those maplestory coupon/ m coupon and others? Can you link me?Thanks
@oink: I have tested it on my side and the English patch still works. Try deleting the English patch that you have installed in your MapleStory2 installation folder and follow the steps carefully as shown in the video. If still does not work, please record a video of the steps you have taken in a video, and send the youtube video link to the contact page, so I can guide you.
my english patch didnt work :'( help
magnificent points altogether, you simply won a brand new reader. What would you recommend in regards to your post that you made some days in the past? Any sure?
@Jacquez: Thanks for your feedback. I have updated the download link for the English patch! Tested working on my side.
Hi everyone, any guides for end game content from level 50 onwards? Looking forward to it :3

@all: The new English patch has been uploaded!
English Patch a disturbing problem to fix it.
@Aiden: Sorry, I seldom play MapleStory2 as I have other things to prioritize. However, I could only provide the English patch.
@Tailes: Thanks for your feedback. I’ll try to get the a workable patch uploaded.
hey ayumilove can we get a update on the latest patch maplestory2 2017 12 jan. the skill are not viewing properly, the quest stop working on my guide when im in my house also when im in my house the view is broken, and the latest event coin is not available to see or to recieve on my mail box and 1 more thing the characters of other player wearing helmet skin are all bold thats all i saw when i tried the latest patch.
hope you fix it. no hurry take your time thanks for creating english patch so other player can play also have a happy new year good luck ^^
ps sowee about my grammar english is not my first language lol
English patch oudated
Hi Ayumi can i know what to do with the rachel ore from engraver rachel? Cant really read the description well. Thanks! 🙂
@Hangul: When you first time surfed/visited the MapleStory2 Nexon game/landing page, there will be a mini pop-up that request you to install the Nexon Game Manager. Do that and you will get the similar one as shown in the video. If you chose to ignore it, then I’m not sure what else I can help with.
@Soujirou: You will need a Paypal account or Visa Credit Card to get a verified game account. Google Search is your friend 🙂
@Conjuring: From my experiences playing KMS2 for over 2 years, I have not got banned for not using Korean VPN. Do take note that if you playing KMS2 in different areas (e.g. you play in USA, then after few months later, you play in a different area like Canada/Asia, the system will detect something amiss and will request you to re-authenticate again. ) The re-authentication also occurs if you have not logged into the game for more than 3~6 months. It’s up to you though if you feel that it provides you more security or perhaps it could lower the ping/latency, then I highly recommend you to use the VPN method.
are you sure that we wont get banned w/o using a KR Vpn ? i’ve read forums saying that people are getting banned for not using a VPN.
uhh..im new here though i really want to play maplestory 2 badly, back then its in korean so i gave up and just wait for and english server to be released. but when i read about the english patch last night i downloaded the game and the patch..my problem now is a verified account..anybody kind enough to help me register? or atleast lend me an account so i can play? please..mail me if you want to help me thanks. [email protected]
Uhhh … upon pressing game start , my nexon game manager does not show up and immediately launches the laucher . i cant apply the english patch :X
Hi, another question, i was downloading the game through the Client -fullinst- but when it went for almost 4Gb the download was restarted, i rebooted the client and it comes out that it restarts the download again, how do i have to download it again?
@Naales: Sorry, I do not have torrent nor mega link.
The new MapleStory2 English patch is now available.
The download link is at the top of this guide.
Tested working fine on my side with KMS2 Santa patch.
Hi, one question, do u have a Torrent link’s Installer or Mega link? My net isn’t fast.
New santa patch is here
Eng patch need update
@Cairn: Thanks for the guide on obtaining the +12 miracle weapon!
You need to collect three different colour stones from the event.
Blue stone – log into the game and then go to the event page check in for ten days to get the golden box for the blue stone. The golden box also gives you an enchantment protect scroll and small chance to get +12 enchantment scroll as well.
Green stone – Get the daily quest from the event NPC. Completed a level 50 dungeon to get a fragment stone. You need ten of it.
Yellow stone – Level up your livestock processing and ore processing to level 4.
@bun: Sorry, I’m not sure how. I play MapleStory2 less often than I used to be as I will be focusing on other priorities.
@ayumi , how do we do the event quest that give +12 miracle weapon, event quest taken in queenstown
@NiDOT, you can try this.
1. Copy the whole MapleStory2 folder into any storage devices such as thumb drive.
2. Ask your friend to download the Nexon game manager from the official Maple Story 2 website.
3. Install Nexon game manager and open it.
4. After you open it, it will automatically start downloading the game.
5. Once you saw some progress let’s say 1% downloading complete, you stop and close it. You don’t have to download the whole game.
6. Now copy and overwrite the whole MapleStory2 folder from your storage devices.
7. Start the game and play.
ty ayumi i want to ask again , how to copy my ms2 to my friend’s computer. can you give me tutorial for that.
@NiDOT: If the update does not show any data being downloaded KB/MB (kilobytes/megabytes), it means the download is stuck and will not proceed with update. Remove any English patch files, and try updating the game. Once the game is fully Korean patched, then only use the English patch. The game requires at least 200~500Kb/s to play the game smoothly with very few players in map. Large towns may require more than 500Kb/s to load all data from other players.
my update is taking time so long , can some one help me?
Thank you! I really appreciate your hard work! /hug
Thanks alot i was waiting for this
thank you Ayumilove
Thankyou Ayumilove for Eng Patch *-*
Thankyou Ayumi *-*
Love you so much :3
@all (Q0Q0, Cutu, Chicken, Yuga, bun):
The new MapleStory2 English patch is now available.
The download link is at the top of this guide.
Tested working fine on my side with KMS2 Restart patch.
Thanks~ waiting for your
English patch 🙂
I very very love u Ayumilove 🙂
Thank you Ayumilove
Do you know when the patch will be updated to the new Restart update?
@Yuga, @Chicken, @bun: Alright, will be checking on the English patch.
patch not work TT
Im also not able to play with the eng patch on this new update.
english patch not working on this new patch
I don’t think there will be a new server on Dec 15, at least they never mention about it.
However, some new feature might be implemented, new method for enchantment, new skill point allocation, etc. I really like the climbing on test server which don’t have to press any key and also flying doesn’t consume EP anymore.
And I heard there will be an event on Dec 15 given out +12 weapon(permanent)!!!
@bun: I’m not sure about the MapleStory2 Restart. They mentioned MS2 Restart will be having something on Dec 15, 2016.
hey @ayumilove, will we get another new server on ms2 restart day?
@Banky: Download Nexon Game Manager and install it.
then what i should do redownload game or download just nexon game manager?
@Banky: Probably that you did not install the “Nexon Game Manager”. The MapleStory2 website will prompt you to install it for conveniences unless you ignored it, it won’t ask you to install it.
Excuse me. Why when I’m log in and click “start game” there’s no game manager windows and I couldn’t change the language in to Eng. Isn’t because game manager?
@Nahar: Press F5 to refresh the explorer. If it still remains the same, then delete those files and re-extract the files from zip that you have downloaded.
Whenever I try to switch the .kr files, all 4 of the Xml files turn into .en I have tried everything please help
Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!
@AngelicEyes: Download and install 7zip, and use this software to extract the files out. I have re-tested today and the files are able to be extracted/decompress fine.
@yolo i found it already, thanks
@yolo, i mean the damage meter, so i know who did the highest damage in dungeon or boss fight.
Setting>Battle Information> Tick the first 4
Press ESC > Second Button > Fourth Button > Tick first 4
Well, u miss out something, there are 1 more 1,500 merit bonus…
U just need to go to the event webpage, scroll down until u saw a RESTART, then u just need to click the word below the ‘RESTART’ to register yourself, then you will entitled for 1,500 and other etc.
Hope this will help you
You are right, just simple as that. i’ve done everything there and move back to the original server
guys, how do we open Damage meter? or dmg chart. i want to see my damage while fighting boss
Hiya, how can i get the Xml m2d file? when i get it from the zip file through google drive i get an error while decompressing it. /
thnx for your help.
I also came here looking for more details regarding the RESET event.
From what I’ve gathered, there are four things you need to be completed in order to receive 11,300 merit from the event.
1) Main story quest – 10,000 merits
Redo the whole main quest until you finished [에픽]불안이 지배하는 세상 which is LV50(?) quest I assume? I’m at LV35 at the moment.
2)Party matching – 300 merits
Completed a LV50 dungeon via the new party matching.
3)Gathering/Production – 500 merits
Not sure what needs to achieve in order to get the merit.
4)World map exploration – 500 merits
You need at least 300 points to get the reward. Each map has its own exploration quest now, such as using the telescope gains you 1 point.
I still need clarification from someone who actually can read Korean and has already finished the event missions.
Forget my previous problem. Lets go to the real problem now :). I’m getting a (31) error code after the install manager is trying to start the game.
I need you Godly Skills <3
@ Ayumi I’m stuck at the Game Manager the % stays on 0. after a few seconds I can see the total size of the game. but it does not go up, after waiting for anything to come back, I just click on the cancel button-> after clicking I’m getting this error code ( [ ERROR CODE = -60 ] Koreans sentence (43215517)
below the numbers is another sentence written in blue
at the bottem a Ok button to close
is there something that I’m missing did anyone have this problem be4?
I Can’t wait to join everyone in the maple paradise. 🙂
ayumi, do u have a skill build for ranger and theif? not sure which skill to upgrade
@waaika: Sorry, I’m not familiar with the MapleStory2 Reset Event. I need a guide too 😀
@ayumilove ayumi can u guide me a <reset event for 11300 merit ?
english patch not working again? ):
Thx ayumi for the english patch
but do you know that now maplestory 2 got another test server with totally different platform of maplestory 2. Everyone in the game, now playing the test server because merit will be given.
@ayumilove yep this windows is locale korea. but i still start game this pop-up is show anytime.
everytime we go in ms2 we need to load up the english patch?
@waiika: Does your Windows Operating System has Korean language installed? If Windows doesn’t have it, then it will not show the Korean words in that pop-up box.
You know this ayumi?
@Yolo: I have updated the MapleStory2 English patch 🙂
Download link: MapleStory2 Data 2016-11-24
Eng patch outdated
Hey ayumi, do you have the latest boss spawn timetable, because karkar island boss are missing from this link
@Simon: If the game account was logon with a very different IP address (e.g. Canada IP, then switched to US IP), then it’s possible that KMS2 request you to re-verify. Was your account logon by someone else from different country? The other one is if the game account was not login into that account for a long time, it will also require you to re-verify the account.
Hey ayumi, i was curious, yesterday i was unable to trade or drop items and once i verified with my email it allowed me to trade and drop again. Then today while i was playing my account went into protection mode and says i need to reverify again… this time its with a korean phone number…. not just email.. is there something i can do? I had this account since april… was working fine till now is there something i can do and something i can do to avoid this happening in the future?
I found out my mistake. I tot I followed exactly what you did. It was my part that I messed up. Thank you so much for the patch and the help! 😀
@WenSheng: Kindly send me a video recording of the steps you have done to login into the game using the English patch to my email at irisheartcpu (at) gmail (dot) com and so I could determine which part that you may have missed or perhaps it could be error on my side with the guide which I can correct.
@WenSheng: The English patch you have in your computer has been overwritten by the KMS2 server or you have not manually switched to the English version. Delete those m2d and m2h. Replace with the ones from the zip file. Switch to Korean data first before start game via Internet Browser. Kindly read the readme.txt guide as provided in the zip file for the details and watch the video for an overview of how its done. It’s not a plug and play as it needs user intervention.
Thank you =)
I still did exactly what you did but it’s still in Korean 🙁
@WenSheng Deng: Thanks for the notice! The new English patch has been uploaded 🙂
@Yolo: Thanks for the notice! The new English patch has been uploaded 🙂
@PocketPicker: Thanks for the notice! The new English patch has been uploaded 🙂
What happened? I tried exactly what you did but it didn’t work? Did you get patched already?
English patch down…
update is needed
I guess eng patch is down again
@Asbestos: Try out the new English patch that I have uploaded today 🙂
English patch is causing some invisible items in my inventory 🙁 anyone know the fix?
I’m looking for English guild too =)
i know its weird question but anyone can crate an account and give me username and password….I cant create a Korean account..(email: [email protected])
Add me buddy
IGN : PocketPicker
Fixed !! thanks 😀 by the way is there any english guild out there?This game is so hard to find people that speak english 🙁
English patch got broke and you need to reinstall for it to work. Still works on current patch.
@Hong: I have tested it on my side and the English patch is still working.
English patch down again i guess :(((((((((((((((((
Thanks for the update Ayumi 😀
Thank you very much.
Have fun too =)
@PocketPicker: The download link has been updated to cater the new patch for Halloween event + the new Halloween escort mount 🙂
@Akumakushu: The download link has been updated to cater the new patch for Halloween event 🙂
Appreciate the efforts on keeping us informed!
I’m curious though as to how the translation is done. it would be really sweet to have a guide or some tips on how to do it manually ourselves in-case we end up waiting over a week for a patch.
Can’t wait for the new english patch =P
I can’t use mount if I’m playing with english patch
@MailBox: Thanks for the notice! I’ll update the download patch link once the translation is completed.
English patch down due to new Halloween update.
English patch need to update… cant match with the halloween patch, some item will not exist if doesnt play the korea version
@Yolo: Oh, I did not realize because the names were closed.
In the youtube video guess the music 225, im sitting there with a blue hat…… O.o
@Fiertes: Use this solution https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2623670 for issues with “Access Denied” or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows.
My ign Go가기, saw ur guild AyumiLoves O.O, but i cant anyhow search it, btw do you have some chinese song sheet?
Ayumi I don have permission to switch English patch what should i do
@Josh: Hi, if you open up the minimap, you can find the yellow/golden question mark. This will help give you some hint such as you will need to travel to that map to continue on the quest. If you were to press “TAB” keyboard button to open the minimap, do you find any yellow blinking circle? This will tell you that you will need to either eliminate those enemies in that area or to collect items. What job is your character on? I wonder if its a specific quest for a particular job.
@Yolo: Oh, whats your IGN (in-game name) in MapleStory2?
Thx Ayumi for the info, btw saw you in the game =)
@Yolo: I don’t think you will need VPN if you are playing in one area. If you do switch often, VPN would be useful as it will not require you to re-verify when your account is accessed from different location.
Without using the VPN, is there any chance my account will need to re-verify?
Is there any chances knx will ask us to re-verify our account if we dont use VPN?
This is kinda related to the English patch. One of the quests I’m on doesn’t explain the step correctly and I don’t understand what i should be doing or looking for. I’ve spent over 2 hours walking around this map trying to find what i believe is meant to be a door but i don’t know and i cant find one. The quest is [Epic] A ray of hope “Make the legend” the step deception is: Journeys into door h. Stowe 69 vols.Go to the area shown in the Stowe Nikon’s heart Search(0/1) Any help would be great 🙂
@XiaoDoDo: Ensure that both Korean and English files are not the same size. If they are, it means the English patch has been overridden by the server with Korean language. You will need to replace that English patch by re-extracting the files out from the zip file that is provided in download link.
Hi Ayumi, but it’s seem like not working on my PC, the game still in korea language, just paste the file which name ”switch”, ”Xml.m2d.kr”, ”Xml.m2h.kr” into Data folder from Maple Story 2 right? and I did press the ”switch” file before click to start the game, I did make sure the file is in ”kr” at the back 🙁
english patch need fixing
@ShoukoChan: The new English patch is now available for download!
@XiaoDoDo: The new English Patch (October 12th, 2016) is now available!
Is it possible to help with english patch?
without english, it’s difficult to play 🙁
alright. hope they will fix it afap !
ermm, but it’s seem like all is not translate to english x-x
I have received your screenshots from your e-mail. It seems that the English patch did not cover those items. Will need to wait for the new English patch to solve those issues.
@XiaoDoDo: KMS2 has recently released a new mini update/patch, that may cause the English translation to not work for new items (may not make item visible in inventory/etc). Will need to wait for new English patch to solve these issues.
hi ayumi, may I ask is it not able to play as english now? 🙁
Hi Ayumi, may I ask is it not able to switch to english now? 🙁
Its Done Ayumilove. !
@ShoukoChan: You can send it to irisheartcpu (at) gmail (dot) com.
so i had downloaded maplestory2 long time ago and i still have the data, now i want to play ms2 again but when i press “game start” on ms2 site, it re-download from 0% all over again. so do you know how to fix it?
i am really sorry for my bad grammar,
erm. do you have email ? i’ll send the pic to you !
@ShoukoChan: What item that is gone? Was it available before today because 12 hours ago MapleStory2 had some maintenance and new patches are added in.
hi ayumi ! Thanks for the update But there is still something missing ~ The weekly Quest is gone and few of my new item is gone too. But when i change to Korean ver it still with me. so i was hopping u could fix it all ! appreciate it
@Aberfit: Try this guide to make the folder to give you rights:
Hey man, thanks for the patch and video but i seem to have some problems to start the switch file.
My computer tells me i dont have the authority to start the file just by double clicking it( i am using the admin User ) but when i run it as an administrator it just flashed for a split second.
@Ayumilove thanks a lot!. you’re very awesome and very hard working.
@ShinaPunch: I’ll work on it right away for MapleStory2 Striker. I have created a post here at http://ayumilove.net/maplestory2-striker-skills/
@Ayumilove i finally found someone who has created blogs for MS2. i feel so appreciate and thanks for working hard. >w<
however, there are no Striker skills. T^T could you please update the striker skills?
@Krawlin: Korea MapleStory2 has updated some of the files, therefore English patch will not work with the latest update. The English patch will take awhile to be updated to translate the new update patch from KMS2. In the meantime, you can use the original Korean data as provided in the zip file to continue playing the game!
@ayumilove i appreciate it! i wish that i can send you the video how the bug look like ><. by the way. good job! keep it up ~!
@ShoukoChan: Thanks for the notice! I’ll check and see the KMS2 English Patch issue.
So i’ve tried using the patch and switching from .en to .kr, and when I go to hit the start button it brings up a prompt saying cannot find feature file. Am I doing something wrong?
Hi Aiyumi ~ . just want to let you know that the kms2 english patch that i’m using now got some bug. some of my item is gone until i change to Korean version . and my item is bugging too. can you please update the english patch ver please ~ thank you so much!
@Jove: For me, it’s around 7.56GB for MapleStory2 files. The installer is approximately 5GB but it will download additional patch files (event data/music/etc) if it’s not found inside the installer.
Already excess more than 8gb hard disk space I installed T_T
How big the nexon game manager installed file ? How many gb can I ask?
ty very much 😀
@Phong: The video guide is just above the comment section.
hi, i downloaded the patch but i don’t how to use it 🙁 can you help me out? 😀
Even without the https:// ayumi pass still no work. Do you even need the password anyways?
Thanks for the quick reply and also thanks for the clarification. I feel dumb now. lol
@Viet: Just enter the website/homepage name and domain extension without any http or forward slashes, similarly to typing the URL into your browser to visit my website!
Hi, I’m trying to download the english patch and it states the pw is the url but when i’m putting in “http://ayumilove.net/maplestory2/” it’s telling me it’s incorrect. Not sure if i’m doing this correctly or not.
How did you get the english patch to work? where can i find the updated version?
Copyright only worth if I sell? if it is just for me, there is no problem?
@RokuRonin: Currently, there are no news about MapleStory 2 reaching MapleSEA nor Global MapleStory this year.
I think it would be similar to how MapleStory 1 is launched.
MapleStory 1 is first released in Korea (KMS) on April 29th 2003.
MapleStory 1 reaches North America (GMS) on May 11th 2005.
MapleStory 1 reaches South East Asia (MapleSEA) on June 23rd 2005.
Looking at the past history of release date, I estimated that MapleStory 2 will reach other continents which are North America, South East Asia, Europe and Japan in 2 years time:
MapleStory 2 is first released in Korea on July 7th 2015.
MapleStory 2 reaches North America (GMS) on August 18th 2017.
MapleStory 2 reaches South East Asia (MapleSEA) on September 30th 2017.
Do you have any info whether it will be out on SEA?
Can you give me one of you char at maplestory seasons 3 please i wan try the game this my email [email protected]
Can anyone help me to activate my account i need any phone number of korea and this hard to find on friends on google and other things and plz if anyone have a phone number of korea plz help me see you all
Ayumi, nice guide on maplestory 2 and i am currently playing it 🙂
I noticed in ur video on maplestory 2 some of the words are in english, would like to ask how do u get the maps and quests all in english?
Similar to the old eKms from leafre.net?
I really want to play but when is the English version being released?
kids 16 and under are not allowed to play between midnight and 6am korea time.
if your account was verified by a minor’s identity, you wont be able to play during this time period until they turn 17.
@Qs: You will need a verified Nexon Korean account to play any games in Korea Nexon Homepage. To play MapleStory2, follow the instructions as mentioned above.
i wanna ask about maplestory2 , after i download , how i open and play ? it redirect me to maplestory2 homepage , and i log in in home page , what shoud i do now ? an identification show out , how do i complete this ?
@Mr Lau: Currently I do not have the latest MSEA mob.data with me. Perhaps you can ask one of your friends who is playing MapleSEA to share his file via pen drive / flash drive. 🙂
@ThatGuy: Probably they will but there are no indicators mentioning it will be released for NA as GMS2 within this year. Currently KMS is delivering new patches daily every 6-8am KST (Korean Time). I wonder if GMS has the take to perform that too.
Hi, can u post about maple sea taming mob data. becz another website is old data. thx
Hey, Ayumi. I just did a quick skim of this post, so you may have already touched on this before. Do you have any idea or information as to when MS2 will be released for NA players?
i wanna ask something, is there any quest guide coming around? 🙂 just curious about the quests part…. thx in adv 😀
@X9sasuke9Xi: Thanks for your grammatical checking! I have updated the word. Will be adding in more useful information as time goes 🙂
Couldn’t help but notice a small grammatical error. Your reply to “Do I need a VPN to play Maplestory 2?” should say” don’t share an account”. Overall, your guides are really helpful. Keep up the good work.
