    Hello Maplers,

    We will be performing Scheduled Maintenance on Sunday June 23. It will last approximately until everything is done. Upon completion, the game will be brought back online and service will be restored. Once restored, you can log in and play!

    Time:
    5 PM server time
    (7 PM CEST)

    What will be unavailable:
    • All MapleLegends game servers and channels
    • Merchants will be closed
    • In-game name change requests using @changeign are automatically processed
    Changes and Updates:
    • Fixing multiple memory leaks that were discovered thanks to the memory dump, explanation below
    • Database maintenance
    Sincerely,

    -MapleLegends Staff & Administration-

    Transparency Report:

    Like mentioned in the last maintenance we have taken a memory dump to investigate what is taking our server memory quicker than it should be. After looking into it we are happy to report we have found multiple leaks that also made sense to us if you think about it, since for quite a while we have noticed they were more noticeable during events, which matches with the leaks we have found and how they are triggered.

    We have potentially addressed them, which hopefully resolves the problem of the server memory filling quicker than it should now, as well as when we have our event and content patch.

    The database maintenance is focused on cleaning up the database if time allows us. This hopefully addresses the recent problem where on specific times there's lag spikes in the server (unrelated to the regional issues, which is more out of our control unfortunately).

    Yes, we are aware, there's still no content patch nor event. We are sorry its taking as long its did, and I know I can say again "its worth the wait", but we believe there's multiple things right now that should be addressed before an event (or content update) should even happen. This maintenance being one of them, and also the recent problem where our file size of our game is reaching a limit on what the setup base we use allows.

    We are already developing something that is mostly working but needs polish, which allows us to use files in a way different method that saves on a lot of space. later versions of the game does this as well, and we are trying port/implement it into v0.62. Once that is done we are positive it will save 40%~ of the total file size of the whole game, because right now v0.62 does not support any kind of method later versions of the game uses, which means there's a lot of duplicated files as well as duplicated image frames all over the game files, which is a complete waste, on top of increasing your in-game memory (more likely to run out of it, thus crashing your client).

    This doesn't mean that the actual patch is not coming soon! We are actually near completion of that as well, but because the server is again getting more aggressive because it tries to save memory, we felt like doing this now before the actual patch. We thank you once again for your patience and understanding!

    Lastly HP Challenge players should be looking forward to the upcoming content patch as well...

    It's better to work out the issues happening before a massive patch happens and the influx of current/new players joining could just make it worse. Thanks for the hard work you guys are putting into the server to make it better. Excited for the patch, whenever it comes out. Haven't been playing too much recently, but looking forward to the patch!

    The gist of it is that the server has been eating up resources way too fast since we've had an influx of players, the database needs some overdue maintenance, and the ML installation size has grown too big because of events-related additions.
    These problems must be addressed before an upcoming event, even though we are very late on schedule.

    Time to remove the "maple dagger" to make some room FoxHehe

    Seriously though great to hear issues have been identified and can be fixed, and good to see priorities are in order (quality first).

    Good stuff! Love to see the technical cleanup happening before new content is added. Wish more games would do that.

    A few hours into the patch with 1000+ people playing, I'm so impressed to see that virtually every lag issue I've seen in this game is gone.

    Loot is picked up immediately, channels change quickly, portals load quickly, mobs don't freeze or teleport- It's like a whole new game. I don't DC or fear I might anymore when I exit the cash shop.

    You guys KILLED this patch. Full marks from me! Hope everyone else has seen similar results and hope it stays this way.
