A very fun aspect which I find in MapleStory 2 is having the ability to play instruments and compose our own music. However, not all of us are musically proficient enough to create our own musical masterpiece (it is also not easy to do so in MS2, having to key in each key on its own to form an entire song). Some of us just simply want to play our favorite songs through the instruments in game, hence, I have decided to create a guide/tutorial on how to do so.
Firstly, you have to unlock your first instrument in the game, which would be the piano. At Level 10+ (I forgot which), a message will show up across your screen, prompting you to access the tutorial for the piano. After completion of the tutorial, you would obtain the piano, as well as several musical sheets for you to compose on.
To start composing, simply double left-click on a blank music sheet, which would open up the composing window.
Click the instrument panel to select the instrument that you would be composing for.
Afterwards, you can find the song that you would want to play on websites such as https://musescore.com , and download your score in the MIDI format after registering.
Then, download the MIDI to MML converter at http://3ml.jp/download.html.
Extract the files within the ZIP folder, and open up 3MLE.exe
Then, hover over File and import Standard MIDI File, and click the MIDI file which you have downloaded from musescore or any other website.
After importing, you can choose to click Export MML to Clipboard, however I seem to encounter a lot of errors in doing so which disallow me to export MML. Alternatively, you can copy the MML text on the bottom right and paste (ctrl V) it in the composing box in Maple Story 2.
Click the play button to test the melody, and once set, create your musical score!
To play your musical score, simply right click your piano, and drag the musical score into the box, and you are all set to play!
