MapleStory 2 China Register, Download & Install Guide (2018)

MapleStory-2-Register-Install-Guide

MapleStory 2 has been around in Korea for a solid three years and last year the game was also made available to download and play in China. So far, a Western release has only ever been mentioned in the past. The easiest and least requiring method to play the game right now is through the Chinese version. I re-installed CMS2 today and it seems there have been several changes to the registration and installation process. Here is the most up-to-date version of the registration, download and installation guide to play CMS2.

1. Create QQ Account

1a. Create a QQ account here. You can use most phone numbers as long as it can receive text messages.

Note 1: Take note of your QQ Number. That is used as your login to CMS2.
Note 2: You may need to change your VPN connection and/or use a different phone number, or wait 24 hours due to too many registration attempts. There have been reports of this issue occurring in the first attempt from community members.

2. Download Installer

2a. Go here and download the installer by clicking the orange mushroom block (left).

3. Download and Install the Game

3a. You will see this shortcut on your desktop or downloads folder. Double-click the shortcut to open. This will also install ‘WeGame’, which is the launcher used for CMS2. You can think of this as Tencent’s attempt at making their own version of Steam.

3b. Once the downloader is up, choose the folder you want to download the game files to.
3c. Click the blue button to begin downloading.

5. Confirm Your Account

5a. If it is your first time logging in to CMS2, this confirmation sheet may appear after pressing the big yellow button in 4b. If this does not appear, skip to step 6.

5ai. Fill out the confirmation sheet.

  • 5ai1. The first box requires a Chinese name (google search for any Chinese name).
  • 5ai2. The second box requires a Chinese Resident ID (get one from this site: https://code-complete.com/chinaid/)
  • 5ai3. Ignore the rest of the boxes.

5aii. Click on the orange button to confirm.

5. Launch the Game

6b. Click the bright yellow button to start the game.

Note: The Queenstown (女王镇) server has the biggest population of English speaking players. You may want to choose that if you wish to possibly see and play with some Western players. There are also some English speaking players in Green River (绿水灵) which is the last option shown in the image above (6b).

If there are any corrections to be made, please share them as a comment. Thank you for reading our guide and enjoy the world of MapleStory 2!

it gave me the same error.. don’t worry about it, if icon in desktop don’t open anything then go here C:\Program Files\腾讯游戏\冒险岛2\WeGameLauncher and then start the Launcher.exe(you can make a shortcut that’s what i’ve done) and you can start it from here

i don’t think that is an issue, is just saying that your pc isn’t chinese so the directory is incorrect due to ch symbols
