    sauna.gibbed.us - for quests.

    Is there a way to save conversations in MapleStory?
    I have a daughter playing on Maplestory and am worried that some personal information was leaked to another player that seemed too “interested” in her age and where she lives. I need to find out if she told this person anything fom past conversations.
    _
    Like every single online site, there are bad people on maplestory. Luckily in my two years of playing, I haven’t come across any, only young kids trying out swearing or scamming other players at the most. However, you need to teach your daughter the things she should and shouldn’t disclose. Explain how even if she thinks she is good friends with someone, she shouldn’t give out information without talking to you first, and should only ever give out her state at the most…..

    How to Make a Maplestory Music Video – wikiHow
    An MMV (MapleStory Music Video) is a music video compiled from screenshots of MapleStory, usually taken of the avatars saying the lyrics or a live recording of the character singing the song.
    .
    Choose a song you are comfortable with and know very well. Have friends that are willing to participate in the MMV. The faster paced the song, the harder the MMV will be to make. Preferably, choose a song that doesn’t start the lyrics right in the beginning, so you can add in a title.
    .
    Get all the lyrics to the song and plan your MMV. Print out a copy of the lyrics and write notes about
    1. Where you will break the lyrics into different “chat bubbles”
    2. Who will be saying each line
    3. Where each line will be taken
    4. Any extras, such as a suitable facial expression, movement, or item.
    .
    Go into MapleStory and gather your participating friends. Follow what you planned out, and take screenshots by pressing Prnt Scrn. Since neither chat bubbles or the facial expressions last long, you must take the picture quickly after preparing them. If you took a bad shot, take it again. Keep taking the planned screenshots until you are done.
    .
    Open up each screenshot using a good image editor. Crop out the part of the screenshots that will be used in the MMV. Resave each new image with a name that you will recognize (If you keep everything saved as Maple000001 or something like that it will be very hard to keep track of). If desired, move all the images to a folder that is easier to access.
    .
    Open up Windows Movie Maker and import all the screenshots into the collection. Drag them into the storyboard in the correct order. Add desired effects and transitions, but do not worry about timing yet.
    .
    Make sure you have the music file that you are making the MMV of, and import it to Movie Maker. Here comes the hard part: timing. Switch from Storyboard to Timelime mode.
    .
    Keep watching and listening to the preview over and over, each time adjusting the time of each picture. Once you have the timing straight, add a Title and if desired, Credits. Save your MMV in a safe folder.
    .
    Advertise your MMV in MapleStory and post it on YouTube. Admire your work and be satisfied.

MapleStory Error Section

    How will Maplestory be faster on my computer?
    0) Ask someone (friend/family member/relative) who knows his stuff to help you with this!
    1) Upgrade RAM (Random Access Memory) to at least 512 mb (megabyte) or higher
    2) Upgrade processor to (Intel Pentium 4 / Intel Core 2 Duo) or higher.
    3) Upgrade internet bandwidth to at least 512kb/s (kilobits/per second) to solve lag.
    4) Uninstall unecessary software
    5) Defragment hard disk
    6) Scan hard disk for potential lurking adware/spyware/virus/trojan.
    7) Clean system registry.
    .
    .
    How do you stop lagging on maplestory without the need to download?
    If you went to a portal, pressed Up, and nothing happened except some sounds, then there may be a problem with your computer or the connection. You may need to get a faster internet connection. Or perhaps, more RAM.
    .
    .
    What do i do when i start up maplestory and it gives me a blackscreen OF DEATH!?
    When I start up MapleStory, after GameGuard does its thing, my screen goes black (like usual, right?) but then several seconds later it just goes back to my desktop. What the heck?
    _
    First of all, if you disable your firewall on your computer and MapleStory works, you are going to have to delete it. Reason being, if you don’t delete, you will get a virus. The firewall is on your computer for a reason to block unwanted crap all the time, not to be disabled/turned off in order to play MapleStory. One solution to this is to enable your firewall to allow MapleStory (some firewall by default blocks all software unless given permission by Administrative User) You need to set custom permission by adding MapleStory into green/safe zone.

Private Story Related Questions

    How do you allow friends to join your private Maplestory Server?
    Click on the link below to find out how to make a registration site. Afterward, have them create their account, log in, sign in and create a character. Look up the characters in your SQL database, and from there you should be able to change them to GM. I must warn you though, http://www.odinms.de , OdinMS the first private server makers are being sued and shut down their site and turned it into a blog. From the outcome of the lawsuit, it would be determined whether or not private servers would be legal. Link: forum.ragezone.com

    FrostAxe :

    my question is for the aran when you reach lvl 30 you are called back for a quest on rien. i did the quest and i talked to maha the polearm to advance my skill to lvl 2 but when i finish the talking to hime he said this. “What the…? You have some SP on you. I can’t restore your abilities like that. You should have spent some of your SP on your 1st job advancement skills. Don’t tell you still don’t remember your 1st job Adv skills! i’m sure you’d remember them if you spent some time gaining experience in Victoria Island.” im so confused i have all my lvl 1 skills maxed out and i have 16 SP left in lvl 1 skill what do i do?

    you have to do all the required aran quests to unlock skills. as you are already lvl 30 and will probably level up if you do them all (and waste sp that you want for your next job advancement) i’d say restart your character…
