Well, I think I might be coming back to MapleStory, but I don't know, really hard to decide. I haven't been on MSN for awhile because it got fucked up, but I just thought I should make this to help out some people. What I mean by "Master Guide", I mean creating, compiling, and running. If you think this is to hard, deal with it. If you think this is way to hard, you won't get any where in life.

Navigation -
  • Server/PC Specs
  • Required Files
  • Tips (Do's and don'ts)
  • Creating
  • Compiling
  • Running
Server/PC Specs -
  1. You should a tleast have 1.5 GB of RAM.
  2. Never run a server off of your PC (Personal Computer)
  3. You should at least have 50 GB of Disk Space
  4. Make sure you have unlimited bandwidth (optional)
Required Files -
  • Source Files (OdinMS)
  • MapleStory v.55
  • MapleStory v.55 LocalHost
Out of those files, for the source files, I suggest Fallen City's. For the MapleStory v.55 and LocalHost, you can find those on your own. You will have to install the JCE files by your self, sorry.

Tips (Do's and don'ts) -
  • Never run off of your PC.
  • I suggest you use clean OdinMS Rev 988 and add fixes and stuff on your own, because most server files today are extremely unstable.
  • If you are going to purchase a Virtual Private Server, I suggest you get one from
Creating -

By creating I mean "modifying". And by modifying I mean editing the Event Notice, the server header/message, and the channel name(s). There are plenty of tutorials on doing all of those if you go through some of the pages in this section (Guide Section). If you guys want, I will add a tutorial on these later. If you want me to, PM me.

Compiling -

To compile, you have to have NetBeans IDE and JDK. You should have both of those if you follow the instruction correctly. Anyway, once you have those installed, open up your NetBeans IDE, and go to File > New Project > Java > Java Project with Existing Source, then you select the folder that the repack files are in, then click next, and select the "src" folder, then click finish and let it make the project. Then go to Build > Main Project. Then your done.

Running - (you must have the .SQL files in the Repack executed in MySQl already)

When you are done compiling, and finished everything else. You are ready to run your server, to do this is very simple. All you have to do is run three specific files in order. First you run "launch_world.bat" then you run "launch_login.bat", then last but not least, you run "launch_channel.bat".

Then connect to your server with a LocalHost client.

Re: [Guide] Master Guide To OdinMS

I don't agree with some things:
Code:
1. You should a tleast have 1.5 GB of RAM.
[B]1. Actually parm's server has only 2 GB and could fit over 300 people without lag.[/B]
2. Never run a server off of your PC (Personal Computer)
[B]2. Why? It's a cheap way until you could purchase a dedicated server. [/B]
3. You should at least have 50 GB of Disk Space
[B]The database with maplestory installed only takes 1.5gb max. [/B]
4. Make sure you have unlimited bandwidth (optional)[B]
4. Unlimited bandwidth is extremely expensive actually. Unless your willing to spend a huge amount of money on the server I don't suggest to do this. [/B]
Code:
* Never run off of your PC.
[B]Why? [/B]
* I suggest you use clean OdinMS Rev 988 and add fixes and stuff on your own, because most server files today are extremely unstable.
[B]Actually modern day repacks are getting much better and save a huge amount of time by adding necessity's such as pets, pvp etc. [/B]
Well those are the things that I don't agree on. Others my agree but I'm expressing what I think. Nothing personal.

First of all, repacks are a lazy way to make server files. And, if you are going to purchase a VPS, it usually means you want your server to get big, and eventually your database will get loaded with accounts and characters, therefore, growing in disk space/size. But I do guess 50 GB is over the top.

You could wait to get a VPS can't you? Also, repacks are a wonderful time saver in my opinion. It might be lazy but it's good for beginner coders to have a decent server.

I'm purchasing a VPS soon for a Counter-Strike: Source server, but I will host a MapleStory Private server later on though.

That GB Ram doesn't matter much, If you want a laggless server its most about your internet speed.

What makes repacks so different from original source files?

In the end, its something that other people made, and something that you're getting credit for o_0.

Re: [Guide] Master Guide To OdinMS

Actually; Theres no point in alot of bandwidth; And hardly any RAM (Random Access Memory).

Aswell as theres no point in; Hardly any bandwidth and alot of RAM;

You should choose a happy medium;

I know my server sped up awhole bunch when I got more ram; I didn't even mess with my bandwidth;

Re: [Guide] Master Guide To OdinMS

Also. I would oonly suggest VPSLand if you are looking for a 20-30 people server.
Other wise, i would use if your looking at a 50+ server
