Just grabbed one. I'll see if I can get it running tonight. Thal, how long does the installer take to get the game running?

>< well..might be a few hours ... i had it partly downloaded for beta 3 then i patched it for open beta. Download it while you are school or work so you don't just wait in anticipation.

Oh make sure you turn off Occulor Oclusion or whatever that setting is called, even the super hard core machines can't handle that and it doesn't give much graphical benefit, but it will make your game chug.

P.S. Best to play with a gamepad or PS3 controller hooked up to your comp. if not use your wsda keys to move and your mouse to move the camera.

Right on, nbd. I'll hook one of my ps3 controllers up and give it a go whenever it gets done. I wanted to get my priest into an iCC tonight anyway, so I'm in no hurry ;)

Holy pictures mel!

Can someone explain how the "classes" work in FF? I've read you can swap between jobs easily enough, it's dependent on what weapon you're wielding, right? What exactly are the different jobs and what, if any, are their analogues in wow?

Shit, guys. What server should I pick? I'm just going to get my first character up and running on Rabanastre, but if there's a big meeting of Maintankadins I'll be glad to make a new character on whatever world. Let me know!

Check out www.thenakamals.com

May not necessarily all be in the same shell, but would like to populate a server with as many good players as possible. We have a fairly sizable group from tankspot on our boards as well.

Eeexcellent. I'm still deciding whether I'm going to invest some time in this game, but things are looking up. I'll try to find you guys when I make a new character. Human Lancer, I'm thinking.

edit: umm... searching the site for what world you're in. Haven't found it yet.

I don't know what it is but it makes me want to punch babies.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Hoping to get a new FFXIV site up and running soon. Aergis has been hard at work making it. I've also been writing a few guides to post when we launch it ^^ :D

I've named my Toons:

Danika Pendragon

and

Pookie Pie

Could this beta client download any slower...

Feels like I might have it completed around about the time they bring out the first expansion.

Yeah, that's been a common complaint. The client is supposed to use UPnP to open the needed ports automatically, but depending on your router/OS (Windows XP vs Vista/7) you may have better luck manually forwarding the port to your PC, usually this is 55296. You can find your exact port by opening the FFXIV Config tool and going to the General section, the network tab will show the port it is trying to use.

Another note for those running Microsoft Security Essentials, it will detect a virus as part of the install (DOS/SSR.gen) and the install is very unhappy with that. Just turning off real time protection is not reported as fixing the issue either, I got around it by killing the msseces.exe process through task manager before running the install.

I know no one else playing the game, so I chose Mysidia(?) server last night and ran around for a bit, that's about it so far!
