Hey, is there a free way to play maplestory on Ubuntu? Ive tried using Virtual Box, I got a Windows XP OS, but when I would run it, game guard would somehow detect that I was using a Virtual OS. If there is no way or is one, I have another question. I tried to put windows XP on my computer that had Ubuntu, but when I put the windows XP on there, it wouldnt let me set up an internet connection for some odd reason. I was using an illegal version of XP so would that be the reason or would it be something else? Thanks.

>game guard would somehow detect that I was using a Virtual OS...
So they fear multiacconts from same pc?
I do not know. Just go to game support and cry that virtual machine, virtual box is not cheating.

On wine this game do not work too... maybe you can try luck with filling wine bug and praying for help.

Well, it appears that Maplestory is uniquely stubbon at getting it to work under Ubuntu. However, you may want to take a look at this thread, it may just be what you're looking for:

Let us know if that works out for you or not :)

Well, it seems to be just about the only way out there that I've found to get the game to work. Try going to this page to download the Linux version of VMWare Workstation:
https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/?p=workstation-l&lp=default
You just need to register for a free account - on the right hand side - then you can download it and try it out.

Once it's downloaded, keep on going with the guide that Praill posted:

Give that a shot, and let us know how it works out :)
