I usually play maple on steam. It started when I kept getting that "trouble logging in? Log in from the site!" message. After reinstalling, it progressed to getting the "we are unable to connect to the game due to firewall or a server check." Finally, I just gave up with steam and tried to install the classic client. I kept getting a message from the pando downloader that it could not connect to the maplestory servers.
I tried restarting earlier to no avail. Will try disabling stuff tomorrow. Any help would be appreciated. :(
