    hmm maybe resolution... or video conflict. Have you updated your video drivers recently?

    Yes, i think i did update it last week... i got nvidia geforce fx 5200, i tried to update it today but i downloaded the wrong thing all the time... if you could help me download the right thing or just tell me how to change the settings to match the right settings of maplestory that would be nice.

    Thanks!

    well it would only be if the resolution was set too high... I believe MS uses a lower res.

    Is the card from Nvidia or from someone that uses the FX5200 chip? (like my chaintech)

    Ok i downloaded it! Thanks alot for your help! i've run the setup file at ms directory too.
    it set my screen res to 85hz.
    Maybe this will help.
    I don't know if it did cuz ms does the error: "Unable to connect to maplestory" cuz of server checks... it has been doing this for more than 1 day. :/

    Does anyone get this error too?

    I don't really know what solved it, maybe i ran the setup file in ms directory or maybe i installed the screen card.
    Thanks alot for your help!
