We recently completed performing compatibility testing for MapleStory, in order to determine how the game client functions on a variety of computer set-ups. MapleStory has undergone lots of updates in the past several years, and we realized that as the game has gotten bigger, our previous system requirements had become outdated.
As a result, we have updated the minimum and recommended system specifications for MapleStory. Please see below:
|Minimum System Requirements||Recommended System Requirements|
|OS||Windows Vista or later||Windows 7 or later|
|Processor||Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.4Ghz||Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 3.0Ghz|
|Memory||2 GB RAM||At least 4 GB RAM|
|Hard Drive||At least 14 GB of free space||At least 14 GB of free space|
|Graphics||GeForce 8600 GT / ATI Radeon HD 3450||GeForce 9600 GT / ATI Radeon HD 3870|
|Sound||DirectX 9.0 or higher compatible sound card||DirectX 9.0 or higher compatible sound card|
|Network||Broadband internet connection||Broadband internet connection|
- We recommend that you install DirectX version 9.0 or higher for the client to run smoothly.
- While MapleStory may continue to play on Windows XP, we cannot guarantee its functionality. In addition, if you have Windows XP, your computer may be vulnerable because Windows XP is no longer receiving security updates as of 4/8/2014.
If you are not sure whether or not your computer meets these specifications, please check by clicking the button below.
What do these changes mean to you?
If you’re playing MapleStory with system requirements that are lower than the minimum specifications listed above, the game may still run, but will be more susceptible to technical issues. If you encounter technical issues while playing, please contact Customer Support and we will try to help, although there may be some issues that we are not able to resolve.
