Tried playing today after a long time. Patched game. Not running.
Reinstalled game. Not running.

I hit play, either from gamelauncher or from the website, the Hackshield thingy loads, but the game window never appears. someThere's a process running as MapleStory.exe, but it's not working.

Tried running as admin, tried a bunch of crap from Basilmarket which I don't trust, nada.

Running Windows 8.1.
