    You mean that I can play any game I want whether it's Korean / Japanese or Russian?!

    Yes, the method behind all of this is OCR (Optical Character Recognition) when you're in a game you can make screenshots right with programs like puu.sh or gyazo, well this works the exact same way!

    I'll be explaining step by step on how to translate a piece of text out of literally any game you want.
    I might make a small video on this later on my channel.

    • Get Abby Fine Reader
    • Install the program and afterwards go to the folder where you installed the program and open up Bonus.ScreenshotReader.exe

    Choose the following:

    Capture: Area.
    Language: Korean (Hangul) if that doesn't work try the other Korean languages in there. (For KMS2) for a Russian game you would need to select Russian of course.
    Send: Text to Clipboard.
    • Open the game you want to translate in this case Maplestory 2 (KMS 2 Final CBT)

    Find the part you want to translate in this case I translated a part of a quest.

    Proof of concept:

    요정 나무 호수의 돌이위 아래 습은
    Google Translate: Up and down the stone wet wood nymph lake

    NOTE: Google Translate is not always this good, sometimes it's better to use other websites such as Systranet etc.

    Some tips:

    Never try to get a big area since it's a program trying to recognize the characters and then put them to your clipboard so if you try for example copy a wall of text there will be some weird looking characters in there.

    In some games texts only appear for a split second or aren't that easy to read, if this is the case try to make a screenshot of the game and paste it in Paint or advanced users in Photoshop and zoom in on it and then go over the area again.

    I hope this helps you all out, just my 2Cents.

    The quests in MapleStory 2 are easy to complete even if you don't understand Korean. With MAVIEW integrated, you can search for which monster, boss monster, NPC or item you need to defeat, visit or obtain.

    Yea this is true, in MS2 I haven't used this technique at all except for making this guide but it could be useful though for any foreign game. Also there will always be situations where a program like this is handy to use in.

    Wow. I've always wanted a program like this to exist but I can't believe it actually does. This sure will come in handy for the OBT! For those who have accounts!

    OCR just makes it possible so you can copy characters out of what you see on the screen and then you paste the characters into Google translate or a different translator and then yes it will translate it.

    Just to add to that basically you snap the Korean Characters then the program processes it into your clipboard and translates it. Wont be 100% full proof due to some character recognition but should work for some translations.

    Yea and if it doesn't translate well, you can also try to put a screenshot in either Photoshop or any editing software that can zoom in and zoom in and then try to do the same process again.

    That bonus screenshot reader requires registration, so I guess I won't play with it on my trial version of Abbyy.

    But I took this ss from some 720p youtube video http://oi62.tinypic.com/jzwmf4.jpg
    And this is what I got from it: https://translate.google.pl/?ie=UTF...격 STR의 영앙_ 안습니다 어배선은 1차 스엇 LUK4 D£X의 앙M 방습니다.

    Makes at least some sense, and its interesting that archer and gunner won't scale from same stats (?)
    Wonder if would make much diffrence if video was 1080p...

    when you select korean from the list of languages, and make a screenshot and translate...great it works

    now when I go back, korean isn't on the dropdown list....seems like a huge hassel to keep adding it to that dropdown list every time i want to use.



    EDIT: figured it out, had to add it to my main languages o the main software
