@Fiel; tell me you are working somehow on this. PLEASE!
inb4 MapleStory's official source is leaked and people start making private servers with it
Well, actually, it'd be quite interesting to know how certain things in the game are coded. Too bad, to do that we'd actually need a source code leak or.. to buy the rights of the game, which actually is quite an expensive way to do it.
This would explain so much if <He who should not be named> was part of this and this was how he was able to release <Program that should not be named> to hack maplestory.
C'mon FielMS server! PAPA NEED A CHINCHILLA MS SERVER!
The BrazilMS source was leaked at one point, if I remember correctly.
I cannot make any statements one way or the other regarding this matter.
Oh the mystery.
Yup it was. Also, the KMST binaries were also leaked in one of their patches, which could be considered valuable.
Overall, you don't need the official MapleStory source code to start a private server. There are already such resources available. You can also figure out how certain things in the game are coded by using just your brain or recording packets. This can be said for any game out there that uses a client-server interaction like MapleStory does.
I just really hope that the profile data for each user was not compromised.
Oh China. Stay classy.
I do know that BrazilMS' source was leaked, but it was a very old version of MapleStory.
I do also know that there are sources for private servers, but they don't reproduce many particular behaviours of the official servers, and it's not always that easy ("just using your brain") to figure them out.
Polygon's story on the subject. It's not about the games (well, less about the games re: selling 'stolen' virtual currency and more about something else).
