Welp, fixed the disk error...however, the game still closes without any error.
I recently bought a new desktop that came with windows 8. Upon downloading maple and starting up, I was met with the error report after black cipher had finished loading. Every time I start it up on Steam, the game window might pop-up for a second while hackshield+Black Cipher loads, but then I'm met with the same error report.
Re-downloaded Maple several times
Downloaded Maple on steam
Changed compatibility (though this makes it impossible for maple to run)
Nothing I do has any effect. The only clue I have is that, occasionally, Black Cipher gives me an issue with the number 0x5d7c412a.
It seems, however, that this issue does not occur on a laptop. I have had two with windows 8 (i recently replaced a not very old one.) and they both play maple with little to no issue.
