    The majority of our players are already using Nexon Launcher, and by discontinuing the older systems including direct launch, we will be able to focus our attention on making improvements to Nexon Launcher and providing a smoother patch experience for all of our upcoming updates.

    Whats smooth about being kicked 2 minutes into the game? and I'm sorry to disagree but I think the majority of users do not use the launcher. The only thing I see in the launcher is the ads that keep spamming and no way to turn off the "slide show" or game ad banners. The only thing smooth about the launcher is how much it lags me.

    Where as it only takes about 30 seconds to 1 minute to launch Mabi via direct launch, it now takes 5 minutes or more to launch via launcher. I don't know why this occurs (I know it's not my system or connection since it takes the same amount of time on all my computers/laptops), but I do think it's pretty bad when launching now requires far more time than the usual manual login.

    Well it seems if i attempt to boot the game via the launcher it creates a zombie Client.exe 138k in size according to task manager, which never does anything, Nexon Launcher determines after like 2 minutes im no longer in game but the client.exe remains until i end the process manually.

    Great Job.

    Good job NEXON. The launcher managed to put my EUropean games in the launcher menu, but not Mabinogi.


    What are you doing?

    Really does suck though; food dungeon event actually had my interest; could've easily scored bragging rights if rats were still in it.

    Steam launcher is effected and won't launch the game because it's using Mabinogi's old launcher, nice. Only limited to one option instead of the previous 3, and if that one option fails, then there's no way around it.


    Edit: Looks like it's fixed for now. There's a quick small update for Mabinogi on steam that fixes the launcher issue.

    Sometimes the update after maintenance for Steam comes out a little later. It is usually within 10 to 20 minutes after the maintenance or sometimes faster. Still better then Nexon Launcher crap.

    I'm hoping we can find a workaround to the Nexon Launcher. Using it to play the game is extremely frustrating if you have more than one account. The old launcher made everything so much easier :(

    wow, it's gonna take me 7 hours+ to download the game within nexon launcher 'cause my download speeed is soooooo slow. It's probably been like 15 minutes now and it's at 122mb/7.19GB. How annoying. Am I gonna have to uninstall the game that ran the direct launch now?

    Nexon Launcher is literally the worst! Now that I've been forced to use it, I've had to restart it a dozen times now because whenever I close Mabi, the launcher won't register that I closed the game and it won't let me start it up again because I'm "currently in-game". For something that's supposed to make my gaming experience "more convenient", it's giving me such a headache. I've faced this issue and more when I tried using it before, it's not like I never gave it a fair chance...it's only been a day since I've started using it again and it's already dawning a fiery rage within me.
    Since Nexon allegedly plans on fixing the launcher's bugs, they should have done so before forcing us to have no other choice. Everyone will probably just be flocking to Steam now, in which case kinda defeats the purpose of trying to get everyone to use Nexon Launcher.

    I really feel like this is the worst way Nexon has screwed us over so far :(

    You can just point the nexon launcher at your old client and it will do a lot less downloading, though if you don't have an appdata folder make sure to rename your mabinogi folder to appdata and then put it inside of a new mabinogi folder before doing so. Point the launcher's download at the existing nexon folder (NOT the existing mabinogi folder) and youre all good.

    Though if you didnt have appdata folder already, it will download like 3-4GB as it insists on having all patch files, but thats still half of downloading the full game

    Okay. I'm completely lost about what you just said of what I should do. X_X

    "Point the launcher's download at the existing nexon folder (NOT the existing mabinogi folder) and youre all good." It is downloading into C:/Nexon/Library. This is the only part I understood from your post.
    7 hours to get to 25%. So sad.

    I use steam and it told me to download the launcher. The download for the launcher was fast for me and all I had to do was log in to the launcher, close it, click steam's mabi icon and then poof. All that changed for me was now I don't have to press start on that mini launcher now, so the nexon launcher actually made it faster for me from now on. (By a couple seconds.)

    Though, its really surprising seeing so many people having issues with this launcher. :S

    Well, after messing about with it yesterday, I still can't get nexon launcher to open the client, so I guess I'm locked out of the game atm.

    Launcher says I'm in game, Client.exe appears in processes list and consumes a little bit of RAM up to about 128MB then it stops there, never appears on screen or anything. Support ticket time I guess.

    Edit: Fancy that, after around 8 hours of troubleshooting, right after I make this post it starts working, gonna make the ticket anyway cos that seems very flukey to me.

    I'm lucky enough to live in a place that has mabi on steam. I know a huge portion of the playerbase isn't so lucky. All servers were pretty dead today, I hope game isn't finally dead.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. About a 30-40% decline in activity on Mari. A lot of people got thrown under the bus yesterday.

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.", it's that simple, the old launcher was working fine...

    Mabi has already been losing players, Nexon really isn't helping the situation by making it even harder for current players to play!

    Unless Nexon actually intends to phase out Mabi...they've really been dropping the ball lately, frankly I wouldn't be surprised if they're just done trying.
