As of this Thursday, March 23, we will be discontinuing the ability to direct launch the MapleStory client by double-clicking the GameLauncher.exe file within your MapleStory game folder.
We are fully focusing on Nexon Launcher as the means to download and update most of our games going forward. Nexon Launcher is a unified central location for accessing all of Nexon's games. It automatically keeps your game client up-to-date by updating in the background, even if you're playing MapleStory or another Nexon game.
The majority of our players are already using Nexon Launcher, and by discontinuing the older systems including direct launch, we will be able to focus our attention on making improvements to Nexon Launcher and providing a smoother patch experience for all of our upcoming updates.
You can download Nexon Launcher by clicking the button below:
Once you log in to Nexon Launcher, you will receive a prompt asking you to import your existing MapleStory installation into your Nexon Launcher game library. For a step-by-step guide to the import process, click here.
As an added incentive, we will be giving out rewards! If you logged in to MapleStory using direct launch any time between 12:00 AM PST on January 1, 2016 and 12:00 AM PST on February 13, 2017, you can receive the following rewards if you log in to MapleStory using Nexon Launcher between 12:00 AM PST on February 13, 2017 and 12:00 AM PDT on April 7, 2017:
