Since I've been receiving tons of help messages regarding the download of HoboStory, I decided to make a picture tutorial to simplify things for people who have trouble downloading.For the following guide, required downloads will be highlighted in orange, downloads that may or may not be needed will be in blue, steps will be highlighted in cyan, and additional info will be in purple.Huge update! Hamachi is no longer needed, it is only mandatory for those who cannot connect via non-hamachi!Step 1:First of all, you have to download all the files needed to play HoboStory.
If you already have played a v75 Private server, you probably won't need the MapleStory v75 client, but if you haven't, download all of the following:
MapleStory v75 Client (Part 1): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
MapleStory v75 Client (Part 2): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
HoboStory v75 (Mirror 1): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
HoboStory v75 (Mirror 2): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hamachi (Download unmanaged version): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
WinRAR: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (credits go to MrBum for taking the time to find this download)
IMPORTANT! WinRAR is NEEDED in order to be able to unpack our server files!
Now that your downloads have finished, your files have probably been downloaded into your downloads
folder. You can find this folder by going to

Now that you're done extracting part 1, go back to your downloads folder and look for part 2. Repeat the above steps until you're done extracting both parts.Step 7:
Navigate to the folder that you extracted both parts to. In this case, I'll be going to:
When you've opened up your MapleStory folder, here's how it should look like:Step 9:

Right click the empty space at the side and choose the option 'Paste'. This will move all the files from the first folder to the second.Step 13:
After it has done pasting, you may remove the other MapleStory folder. The result of all the compiled files into a single folder should look something like this:Step 14:
You're almost done. Go back to your downloads folder, and find the HoboStory v75 Hamachi.exe file. This is extremely important, as it is the launcher for our server.Step 15:

Navigate back to your MapleStory folder (again) and finally, right click and Paste!Step 17:
You're done! All you've got to do now is go to 126.96.36.199 and register for an account if you haven't done so. If you have already registered, you're done with the tut so have fun in game!
