    Legends+ Client Mod

    [​IMG]

    Please note that there's no longer any development being made on Legends+.

    FEATURES

    +A DirectX9 client
    Performance gains in almost every setup, tons of client bug fixes, compatibility improvements for modern OSes, and a whole heap of new awesome features!
    +Freely resize, maximize and minimize your client
    This is available without changing any settings - simply launch the game as normal
    +Change your fullscreen or windowed resolution
    Select a recommended resolution from the drop-down menu, or select 'Show All' to be able to see ALL available resolutions
    +Play in a borderless window
    Freely tab out without interrupting your game
    +Restrict Cursor
    Lock the cursor inside the window, preventing you from accidentally clicking on your desktop/on another monitor, for multiple monitor setups

    CHANGELOG

    Code:
        +Public 0.9.3.1
           Fixed a typo on one of the tool error messages (...yes this is seriously the reason for this update)
           Fixed a bug causing the installer to use the old icon on Windows 10
           Updated the donation account so I actually receive notification E-mails now
    
       +Public 0.9.3
           Windowed mode now attempts to find both 'MapleLegendsWindow.exe' and 'MapleLegendsWindowed.exe', due to the client being renamed again
           A new icon for both the installer and application!
    
       +Public 0.9.2
           Windowed flag now loads MapleLegendsWindow instead of MapleLegendsWindowed, as the file name was changed in    the latest MapleLegends update
           'Non-Resizable Window' now has additional title bar buttons
           Bug fix: With 'Non-Resizable Window' enabled, the total client width was 1px larger than it should be,    which caused minor pixel distortion
           Added some internal handling for shaders and window messages; no public implementation yet
           Performance improvements
           Compatibility fixes for Windows 10 update changes
    
       +Public v0.9
           Gave the installer a makeover
           Non-resizable Windowed is now an available option
           Performance and compatibility improvements
     
    
       +Public 0.8
           Installer now automatically removes config.ini and _d3d8.dll to avoid issues when updating/reinstalling Legends+
           'Use DirectX 9 Client' now named 'Enable Legends+'
           Borderless Windowed is now an available option
           Performance and compatibility improvements
    
       +Public 0.7
           Initial release

    Eh, might wanna add a return to normal button.

    My game is permanently locked in a weird resolution. Even when not using your launcher.

    EDIT: found out the top one is the normal resolution.

    Love client, I just REALLY wish there was a way to lock what ever resolution you choose. Can't even count the amount of times I have fucked up the resolution because I wanted to move the window.

    I'm assuming if you open up the Legends+ Config and uncheck the box at the top, the "Use DirectX9 Client" you should be able to run the game in default. Once you set the resolution settings though, I'm assuming you won't have to run/launch the game through the Legends+ Config again (assuming it saves your preferences) but I might be wrong.

    I'll provide the source code once everything is cleaned up a bit, and I'm pleased enough to not be dedicating as much time to working on it! The shim is currently quite hacky (and specific to Maple Story's odd handling of a few things) so I'm loathe to share it just yet. :)

    Im either getting "MapleLegends.exe was not found" when I don't have Maple Story running or " MapleLegends.exe is already running. Please close any actives clients before modifying settings." when i launch the client.

    Did you install the tool to the same directory that you've installed MapleLegends? The default is C:\MapleLegends, but if you've installed elsewhere it won't detect the files.

    Or if your antivirus has deleted one of the game executables but you still use 'MapleLegendsWindowed' to play, you can tick the 'Windowed' box in the tool which will change the default file it loads. :)

    That's really odd! Did you make sure to copy both required files (dxd8.dll, Legends+ Config.exe)? Does enabling/disabling the DX9 client (the top option in the tool) show any error messages?

    I have a _d3d8.dll but not a dxd8.dll, and i didn't get any error messages no.
    I tired uploading a picture of my file so you could see everything in it, but for some reason its just being stupid OTL;

    If you open the tool and ensure that 'Use DirectX9 Client' is ticked (without the game booted), then click Launch, that should resolve it! :)

    If that doesn't resolve it, make sure 'Use DirectX9 Client' is ticked, and then manually rename _d3d8.dll to d3d8.dll. (You shouldn't have to do that, though)

    It still won't let me adjust the size, but at least it fixes the major issue i was having which was the resolution messing up my second screen. So i'll take it as a win for now lol

    New version available!

    Public v0.8

    Code:
    [ DLL version:         0.7.1.5 ]
    [ Config Tool version: 0.5.1.5 ]
    UPDATE NOTES
    +Installer now automatically removes config.ini and _d3d8.dll to avoid issues when updating/reinstalling Legends+
    +'Use DirectX 9 Client' now named 'Enable Legends+' for ease of interaction
    +Borderless Window is now an available option
    +Performance and compatibility improvements, particularly with AMD systems​

    KNOWN ISSUES
    With 'Borderless Window' enabled, switching to fullscreen (ALT+ENTER) and back to windowed mode results in a normal bordered window​

    This is an awesome idea! Any way you'd like to see it implemented? Would you like a "not resizable window" option in the config tool, or some other kind of toggle?
