How I got Ms to work on Mac in Parallels

General MapleStory Forum Talk about MapleStory in general

In the registry, go to,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE HARDWARE DESCRIPTION SYSTEM

change VideoBiosVersion to:

NOBOX__ VGA-Compatible BIOS Version 3.0.2111.89721

I'm pretty sure anything will work, actually.

Please note, you have to start Maplestory through the website, not GameLauncher (at least I couldn't get it to work, if anyone does, please post what you did)

Please note, you'll need to change this registry setting every time you start up your VM. I wrote a batch file that I can just double click on when I want to play Maplestory. I'm too tired to try to automate it at start up for now.

My system specs for reference:

Mac OS X Version 10.7.3
Parallels Version 7.0.15055
Windows 7 Ultimate, SP1 (64-bit)

Please post your results along with your specs to help others.

As always, your mileage may vary.

I didn't find a VideoBiosVersion so I just changed BIOS to the NOBOX__ VGA-Compatible BIOS Version 3.0.2111.89721 and I'm going to see if it works.

-It also works for Windows XP Professional

**If you can't find VideoBiosVersion**
go to Edit > Find and put in "VideoBiosVersion"
It should work. It did for me. c:
Then you change the Data to what he gave you above.

Thank you so much for this. It finally works. Haha.

Many thanks for this. Works perfectly and also, GameLauncher works perfectly fine for me, so not sure what's going on there for you.

Go to Run and then type "regedit" then you'll be able to edit the registry, be careful.

I'll be very happy if this works. Going to try this as soon as I get home.

Edit: Yay it works! Thank you so much, now I'm able to play on my mac again.

For all you unexperienced non-tech-savvy people, read and check to make sure you know what you're doing or at least doing it right. Screwing up your registry isn't exactly something you wanna do.
