PREMIUM GUIDE CONTEST

Hi. I'm MrMagicMan and I'm here to tell you how to install and patch BannedStory 2 (seeing as there is no installer and you have to install manually, you will need this if you're new.)

If you have BannedStory 1, in your BannedStory folder, delete everything in the folder. BannedStory 2 is incompatible with BannedStory 1.

Please note that this tutorial does not cover Macintosh.

First of all, go to BannedStory's official site and go to the downloads page. You're there? Great! You will need the following:

* 1.0 GHz CPU or above
* 256 MB of RAM or above
* 200 MB free disk space

Base File Installation

Got that? All right! Now it's time to install. You need to select one of the BannedStory base file mirrors. You will only need to download this once. If you're kind of new at ZIP files (or you don't have a ZIP program), I'd recommend one of the two left mirrors.



This is a long download, so please wait patiently.

Got it downloaded? Great. Now, once done, open it. Windows should automatically open it in a ZIP folder if you do not have a ZIP program.

If you have a ZIP program, just ZIP it to My Computer -> C: -> Program Files -> BannedStory. If that folder does not exist, create it, then follow through the instructions of your ZIP program.

If you do not have a ZIP program, in the ZIP folder Windows automatically opened, click on "Extract all files".



Click Next. Now, click Browse. Now, we get to select where it will go. Click on + next to My Computer, then + on C:, and then + on Program Files. If you do not have a BannedStory folder, click on "Program Files" then create it by clicking on "Make New Folder". Now, click on the BannedStory folder. Now, click OK. Then click Next. Wait for it to finish then exit out of the wizard.







The base file you just installed only needs to be downloaded and installed one time. You do not have to install it again.

Program/Patch Installing

Now that you have the base file installed, go to the BannedStory official site and go to the downloads page. Now, go to the BannedStory program/patch file and select the Windows file. Download it.



Got it downloaded? Great.

If you have a ZIP program, just ZIP it to My Computer -> C: -> Program Files -> BannedStory. If you are patching, you may get some prompts about overwriting. Click "Yes to All".

If you do not have a ZIP program, in the ZIP folder Windows automatically opened, click on "Extract all files".



Go through the wizard and go to the BannedStory program files folder. Click OK then next. If you are patching, you may get some prompts about overwriting. Click "Yes to All".







There you have it. The program/patch.

Placing the Program Shortcut on Your Desktop

If you want a shortcut on your desktop to BannedStory, follow these instructions. Go to My Computer, and then go to (C:). Go to Program Files, then BannedStory. Right-click the BannedStory program file, and click on "Create Shortcut". Minimize everything but the BannedStory folder. Drag the shortcut to your desktop.

You now have the shortcut. Here are some optional things you can do with your shortcut.

If you want your shortcut to only say "BannedStory", right-click the shortcut and click "Rename". Rename it to BannedStory and hit enter/return.

If you want your desktop icons to be organized, right-click somewhere on your desktop, roll over "Arrange icons by..." and then click on how you want it to be organized.

I hope this tutorial has helped you install BannedStory, and good luck on creating your own MapleStory characters, pets, and skills. Bye! mush1n.gif

All pictures are by me.

Nice guide, how long should it take BannedStory to fully extract? The first time I did it for BannedStory 1, it took 5 hours. mush1i.gif

Shouldn't take that long. mush1c.gif At least now BannedStory 2 just depends on your computer.

Pictures are added.

Same thing happened to me. Let me put it this way- if you have 2.0, 1.0 becomes obsolete. Trash it.

You need to empty out the Banned Story folder first. I got mine to work.

It's downloading with 17kb/sec with both links.
With other downloading things I get 300 kbs.

I'm not gonna bother downloading, 2 hours is too much for that.
Feel free to add, I need crazy people! xd

That's for online version, if you read carefully. That's why I didn't put that in my requirements. mush1k.gif

Well, no, but they are incompatible with each other, meaning, they do not cooperate.

I've never had that problem before. Possibly an error when you downloaded it?

Wow, you just bumped a year old topic. mush1j.gif

On topic, does anyone know if Pirate data has been added to the offline version?
