    Welcome to Leafre.net, the Korean MapleStory English Community!
    As you can guess, we are a site mainly devoted to allowing English-speaking people play Korean MapleStory, or KMS. This guide will help you get your account and get started in-game.


    Getting Your Account

    There are 3 main ways to get an account for KMS that involve Leafre.
    Way 1
    If you have a Korean KSSN (your own or one from a family member), you can use our Registration Guide and get an account. Note that you are making a Nexon Account this way, with which you can make 10+ Nexon ID's.

    Way 2
    If you can get a KSSN, you can also use the above method. It is possible to obtain a KSSN but do not speak of how or where here. Also, do not buy/trade/sell accounts.


    Way 3
    Applying for an account here. You must be Lv. 5 on Activity level. Read below for more information.

    Leveling Up Activity

    You can level up your activity mainly by posting on the forums (the other things are incredibly negligible). Note that the Social Corner does not give points for anything. Each post gives a certain amount of points. You can also lose points by getting infractions.
    Infractions are
    what happens when you do something that violates the Forum Rules. What you should be most worried about is SPAM.
    Spam
    is defined as "messages that serve no purpose". This can be on the forums or on the chatbox.


    To see an official list of what can get you infracted see here. (Scroll down to the bottom.)
    When you submit your application, your posts are looked at. If you've been spamming, your application will be rejected out of hand and you will be given a nice little temp-ban. However, you're more likely to be caught and reported before you can get an application in. You will then be infracted and possibly banned, which sort of defeats the purpose of why you're here in the first place. So don't spam. Do note that length does not make a spam post into a non-spam post. Make posts that are helpful, relevant, or otherwise useful. Don't post something that is just paraphrasing something someone else said on the page. Don't post the same thing half a dozen times in different threads. It should be fairly obvious.

    Official Activity Information:
    See Official Leafre Method spoiler for link to post.

    How do I check my Activity?
    You can view your Activity Level through your Profile and clicking the 'Activity' tab.


    How do I get my Activity Level to raise up?
    Various tasks. Each give a specific amount of points.
    Chatting in the chat box (not anymore)
    Posting in threads & visitor messages.
    Referrals
    ...and many more things!
    Currently, chatting in the chat box does not give points.

    To check activity

    Go to your profile (which vBulletin has helpfully put 2 links to on the top of the page), and click on the activity tab. You can see your level, how much you need to get to the next level, and more. When you've reached level 5 activity, you may not immediately be able to apply for an account. This happens sometimes. Don't flip out. Just wait a little while. The forum takes a little while to check if you're able to apply.
    Since some of our less discerning members of the community have experienced difficulties in finding this stuff, I'm going to provide you with a picture to show you where to view your activity.


    To know when you can do the app, check in the MapleStory 1 link on the top

    If it's green, you can apply. If not, you'll have not reached Lv. 5 (or, again, the forum hasn't applied the change yet).

    The Application

    When you do your application, do it thoughtfully. Take your time with it.
    Chances are, taking 5 more minutes on it will affect when you get your account only in a positive direction. Answer all the questions and be sure you have the right answer.


    Before you take the application, you must download KMS and be able to start it and get to the login screen. One question on the application will involve the Leafre Test KMS account.
    A bit of detail on that:
    The password and username are here. There is no PIC provided. This is because you do not need to get in-game to answer the question. Simply describe it well enough to answer the question in a way that Leo (Deception) will know you've gotten in-game.
    If the question is about Hackshield or an in-game error, I recommend looking in the Tech Help section. If the question is about Korean, look in the Translation Help section. Et cetera, et cetera.


    When you complete your application and send it, there will be a waiting period before an Application Manager can look at it. This is because they have lives. If you have a problem with waiting, then you are going to have a ton of problems for the rest of your natural life.
    If you get rejected:
    First, figure out why. Do this by looking at the question that you got wrong and then searching for the answer. If it is a question about why you want to play KMS that you got rejected on, then really you probably shouldn't be here. Do not post a thread or rage in the chatbox about it. That is a terrible idea.
    If by some miracle you are accepted eventually, you will be given a position on the waiting list. This is live-updated in this sub-forum. Accounts are typically made in 5's. They are also made when the account makers damn well feel like it.
    Before you start to complain about how long it's taking
    You should understand that this is a free service that is allowing you to play cutting-edge new classes and content. You should be thanking them for doing this at all, not being mad at them for taking a while. As with the Application Managers, these people have lives. Your account is not the most important thing in the world in their mind, and you need to get that into your head.



    Downloading, Installing, and Starting the Game


    Downloading
    First things first: You need to change your computer to Korean Code-Page. Here are instructions.
    After you have done that, you need to download the game. However, unless you live in Korea or nearby, you should probably use a download manager. Orbit, FlashGet, and DAP are 3 good ones. I personally recommend Orbit, but it's up to you. Once you've got one of those installed, open it up and start a new download. Use all 5 of these links!
    MapleInstall.exe
    Link 2 - Mapleinstall.z01
    Link 3 - MapleInstall.z02
    Link 4 - MapleInstall.z03
    Link 5 - MapleInstall.z04


    After you finished downloading all of these 5 files, click MapleInstall.exe


    Installing
    Once that is installed, double-click on the installed file and start running things.

    Click on the one with the check mark.
    If you're getting the "Cannot Load DLL" message
    check here.

    Then the installer should come up and start working. Depending on how terrible your computer is, it should be done installing in an hour or in a day, or somewhere in between.
    When your installation is done, you'll see this picture.
    Picture

    To play the game, you have 2 options. You can go through the site or through Gamelauncher.

    Starting the Game
    Warning:
    All new accounts must follow a different login, as stated below in the post by WolfRaven. Click here to get re-directed.

    Through Gamelauncher
    Go to your Maple folder. This should be at C:\Nexon\Maple. Double-click on gamelauncher.exe. There will be a popup that looks like this:
    Popup

    Click on the RIGHT button to start the game through gamelauncher. If you click on the left button, it will take you to the main page using your default browser (which won't work unless you use Internet Explorer as your default browser).
    Allow the program maplestory.exe to make changes to your computer when that prompt comes up.
    Then, HackShield should start to load. This may take a while. If it's not done in about 3-4 minutes however, you should end the process hackshield.exe (more about that later).
    Once that's done, AhnLab will start up.

    About AhnLab/Installation
    AhnLab is one of Nexon Korea's anti-keylogging and anti-hacking measures. There are two phases of the AhnLab start-up. The first is checking for updates for the software and, if necessary, updating. That looks like this:

    After that, it will actually load AhnLab and start it up. That screen looks like this:

    Once it's loaded, your Maple client should pop up fairly soon. Note that it may take a while for maple to actually start up from here. This is normal. Again, wait a few minutes. If it's still not done after 5 minutes or so, end the process and try again. If it still doesn't work, then you can make a thread asking for help.
    Note on Ending Processes

    To end a process, go into your Task Manager (you may have to press ctrl+alt+delete to get it), go into the processes tab, click on the process (processes associated with Maple are maplestory.exe, hackshield.exe, ASPlnchr.exe, and HSUpdate.exe), and click End Process.

    Starting Through the Site
    Go to http://www.maplestory.nexon.com/ using Internet Explorer. This is important. You must be using Internet Explorer or an emulated IE, otherwise nothing works.
    The main page looks like this:

    The box on the left that looks like this:
    Login Box

    is the login box. Before you put anything in there, check the MIDDLE of the 3 boxes. If you don't have AhnLab already installed for some reason (you probably won't if this is your first time), then you will likely be redirected to this page:

    Click the large pink button at the bottom. Internet Explorer then should ask if you want to install AhnLab, say yes. You should then be redirected back to the main page (you may have to click on the pink button again), where AhnLab should start up. At first it will look like this:
    AhnLab Again!

    Then it will look like this

    The first one is it checking for updates/updating, and the second one is it initializing. Once that's done, you can enter your username and password and log in.
    You will likely then be redirected to this page:

    Just click the big pink button on the right with the toy soldier. You should then be redirected back to the main page. Your main character (if you have one) should be displayed now in the login box. You can now click the Game Start button on top of the login box. Your hackshield should then start up, then your AhnLab. After that's done, your Maplestory client should come up. Note that it may take a while for maple to actually start up from here. This is normal. Again, wait a few minutes. If it's still not done after 5 minutes or so, end the process and try again. If it still doesn't work, then you can make a thread asking for help.


    Getting In-Game
    Once you get to the World Select screen, click on the world you want to enter. Most people on Leafre and most English-speakers play in Luna, whose icon looks like this:


    Luna is merged with Culverin, Galicia, Medere, and Fleta.
    Same order as above. So if you're wondering what happened to Culverin or heard that the community was in Culverin, now you know where it is!
    Once you get to the Character Select screen, it'll look like this :

    Click on the centre-left button with a gold plus on it to make a new character.
    If this is your first time
    You will be prompted with the PIC window. Type in the PIC you want and enter it. Then the PIC window will pop up again. Verify your PIC by entering it again. You'll then be taken to the job selection screen, and it should be fairly obvious from there.
    Once you're in-game, have someone add you. The list of people who can add you is here. Alternatively, you can make a thread in the Buddy List forum. You will have to tell the person who adds you your forum name. this is a precaution to ensure that people who break the forum rules in-game are punished properly.


    While In-Game
    Currently Knights of Cygnus are unavailable for creation. It is not known when they will return. Ergo, do not ask when they will return. Nor should you ask where to train or what skills to add. There are whole sub-forums devoted to those two topics. Currently, KMS has the Midnight Ban implemented. Here is a thread about that. Therefore, do not ask why you are unable to log in when the large banner at the top of every page says "Midnight Ban is ACTIVE". Chances are, if you have a question about the game, either it's answered in a guide on the forums or it's blindingly obvious, and therefore should not be asked. Mobs in KMS do not drop cubes.

    Detailed Class Guide
    We ask that you please refrain from making What class should I make? or What class is best? threads. Our site translators @Star and @Tim were kind enough to bring us a complete Class Guide that you can find here. Any threads like this will be quickly closed and greeted by this guide.


    FAQ

    Q: I'm getting [insert error here]. What can I do to fix it?
    A: Check the Frequent Errors and Fixes guide.


    This is the new and approved Getting Started Guide, comissioned and approved by @KremeChoco . Thank you to @Ouchiess and @WolfRaven for help with this.

    Made by @Raul with lots of help from @WolfRaven

    EDIT: 3rd of January, 2013
    This is re-opened for one reason and one reason only and that is so I could make a couple edits. What I want now is any reasonable criticism that you have about the guide at this point in time. If you like how it is, don't post that. Only post if you have something you think should be changed. If you have a question about something in here, it is a better idea to make a thread about it in one of the various help subforums (tech help, translation help, registration help). If I'm not getting feedback and it's just people spamming worthless questions, I'm going to have this thing closed again.

    Before You Start
    I call the overall account (made with an email and KSSN) the Nexon Account.
    I will call the accounts within it Nexon ID's.
    These are simply my labeling terms and may or may not be accurate. Please bear with it throughout the rest of this guide.


    Also, keep in mind that...
    Code:
    Note: Your PIC is different on all of the Nexon ID's but there is no password for any of them.
    
    
    It is possible to be logged into multiple Nexon ID's in the same Nexon Account at once.
    
    
    Nexon ID's share NX.

    Logging into a Nexon ID - GameLauncher.exe
    1. Click the 2nd button at the top and enter in your Nexon Account email and password. Refer to Img006 if you have problems.
      Img006

    2. Once logged in, you'll have a list of all your Nexon ID's. Select one and hit the middle button or enter. See Img007 if you have problems.
      Img007

    3. You have now logged in, pick a world and make your characters.
      Img008
    Logging into a Nexon ID - http://maplestory.nexon.com
    1. Login, just like before. If you have problems, see Img001.

    2. If you have more than one account, you will be prompted to select one of your Nexon ID's. Pick one and hit the left button.
      Img009

    3. Start game normally.



    Congratulatorinimificationously
    You're done.

    For now things are f'ed up
    If you receive this error while using the Nexon Login, we're trying to fix it, please be patient.

    Is the installer you have on there updated every time? Or is that an old one that I just downloaded?
