MapleStory: Unable to connect to the login server
01 December 2005 - 04:45 PM
A friend of mine and I often play MS together, yet sadly, after this last update (The one that added snowboards and ended that horrible, aweful chicken/turkey thanksgiving alphabet event) she can no longer connect. Her error message is generic, and she isn't close enough for me to try and help personally, so I am stuck with remote assistance.
However, knowing little to nothing about Wizet's programming or what would cause these errors, I can simply post this message in the forum and hope someone is smart and kind enough to help.
Here is a screen shot of the error she is receiving..

She can't even load MS. GameGuard runs fine, then the error pops up. Maple Story itself refuses to load for her. We've tried rebooting, un and re-installing, all sorts of things. It's just this ONE recent update that is giving us issues.
If your friend has WIN XP, tell him/her to use the Admin accoount, try it there..
Tell me if that doesn't work.

I feel I am walking in circles.
that happed to me. Does she have norton? 'cause thats what blocked me. What I did was simply re-install the game by downloading the client again from mapleglobal. if she has the newer version of norton, a pop-up will come up saying "maplestory.exe is attempting to connect to the internet" IF THIS COMES UP HIT PERMIT AND ALWAYS USE THIS ACTION. However, if its not norton, i'm stumped.
We've -already- tried uninstalling and re-installing..

Friggin'.. stupid love programming.. grr..
That is happening to me too! Argh.... I just downloaded it using like 2 hrs? The gamegaurd works fine but I get the same message when the window pops out... I guess I have to continue playing with MapleSEA for now!
Anyone.. um.. else?

My laptop has a similar problem, tip, be fast.
A few patches ago i started having this problem... It doesn't do it everytime but sometimes after i've typed in my password and done the pin number the three servers load up and when i click on Bera it quits to the desktop and tells me it can't connect to the server.. But when i try again immediately afterwards it connects fine.

Delete my old firewall directories that I had uninstalled in the past
Made my Zone Alarm Pro firewall start when Windows starts
Apparently... Zone Alarm Pro decided not to start anymore with Windows, I have no idea what this has to do with connecting to Maple Story but whatever - it worked.
And if you have Service Pack 2, try enabling your Windows firewall before attempting to play.
Click the "Enable" button and make sure the DISALLOW EXCEPTIONS button is UNCHECKED.
Or if that didn't work, try doing it the opposite way.
Hope I helped in anyway for those people in need.

Hopefully by now you have it fixed - if not then give that a shot.

I think this is the patch's fault since I could play the day before it came out. I tried playing the game in the administrater's account but that did not work.
I actually can't redownload the game since my internet explore can no longer view their website.
