      FFXIV Installation Info & Issues - Post here please

      **Please note the following before posting!**


      Installing the release version of “FINAL FANTASY XIV” or other software developed by our company while “FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version” remains installed may cause certain issues.

      Be sure to uninstall the beta version of the game BEFORE you install the retail version.

      Should you try to uninstall “FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version” after installing the release version, certain settings may be reset.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      The url to register a new Square Enix Account is:

      https://secure.square-enix.com/account/app/svc/register

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      If you do get the game installed and can not get to character creation, please be aware of the following:

      If server congestion occurs, character creation may temporarily become unavailable.

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      If you were in the open beta and want to transfer your character name or your saved character model, please note the following:

      - Transferring Character Names

      Official Release Participants of the Open Beta Test will be able to transfer their character names from the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test to the official release. As long as the worlds selected in the open beta test and the official release are the same, the character name used in the open beta test will be usable in the official release.

      * Upon the transfer of the character name, both selection of the world and character name input need to be done properly. Please make sure to remember both the world you belonged to and the name of the character you used during the open beta test.
      *If the character name has been determined to be improper by Square Enix, the transfer may not be done.
      * After the open beta test has concluded, the character names still existing on the account will be transferable.


      - Transferring Character Appearance to the Official Release

      During the open beta test, saving a character’s data at the time of its creation will allow you to create a character with the same appearance in the commercial release of the game.

      *Data on character appearance will be saved under My Documents. Please be aware that the transfer cannot be done if the My Documents directory is deleted. Uninstalling the beta client "FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version" will not cause the data saved in My Documents to be deleted.


      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

      If your FFXI account is currently active (meaning you are being billed monthly), then you can transfer your FFXI character names to your FFXIV account BEFORE creating your character in FFXIV. Please follow the information below:

      - Transferal of FINAL FANTASY XI Player Character Name to FINAL FANTASY XIV

      When creating a new FINAL FANTASY XIV character, FINAL FANTASY XI players’ character names will be prioritized. The character’s name will become “Given Name: the Player Character’s name in FINAL FANTASY XI” + “Surname: the name of the Player Character’s World.”
      (EXAMPLE: Let's say I played a character called Thegrandmom on Siren. My new name in FFXIV will be "Thegrandmom Siren" since there is a given name (first name) and a surname (second name)

      * Please note that you will not be able to transfer your Player Character name in the following cases:

      - If you have created a character before linking your PlayOnline ID (It is, however, possible to transfer Player Character names by deleting the characters you created, linking your PlayOnline ID, and then re-creating your characters).
      - If, at the time of creating your FINAL FANTASY XIV character, the linked PlayOnline ID’s FINAL FANTASY XI Content IDs are invalid (the Content IDs have been canceled and are thus not being billed).
      - If the linked PlayOnline ID’s FINAL FANTASY XI is in the free trial period.
      - If there are no FINAL FANTASY XI characters on the linked PlayOnline ID.
      * If you have recently created a character, transferred Worlds, or used the Character Reactivation Service on FINAL FANTASY XI, it may take some time before you can transfer your Player Character name to FINAL FANTASY XIV.
      * Users can create characters with new names, regardless of whether a PlayOnline ID is linked or not.


      --------------------------------------------------------------------

      In order to receive your in-game bonus items, please note the following:

      - In-Game Bonus Items

      * Please note that you will not be able to receive a special in-game item in the following cases:

      Try doing it the same way we did it in beta -- use uTorrent.

      The torrent files are in this location this time around...
      C:\users\%userprofile%\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV\downloads\ffxiv\
      And so on and so forth.

      I had no problems updating. It's just hit and miss I think. My update took 45 minutes but it would fluctuate greatly between an hour and TEN hours. lol My advice, cancel and restart if its not updating after 10 minutes.

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV\downloads\ffxiv\48eca647\metainfo\D2010.09.19.0000

    That's for the Sept. 19 patch. The "July" patch is in the other numbered folder in download\ffxiv.

    The torrent files are on your computer. Look under My Documents, Games(whatever), FFXIV, downloads, metacontent, or however it goes. One folder will be for the torrent files, the other will be for the patch files. Download the patch file through the torrent, and then toss it into the patch folder and run the updater.

    Please keep all installation questions in one thread otherwise we are going to have dozens of threads with installation questions. If we get helpful answers, the OP can be updated with the information.

    Re: FFXIV Installation Info & Issues - Post here please

    So, I am trying to install from the retail disc but this garbage wants me to put it into my C: drive which i have partitioned off strictly for my OS. Is there anyway to override the default installation area. Or do I really have to wait for a torrent. This is such B.S.

    It should ask you where you want to install it when you have the installer running... like any other game.

    STILL NO FFXI FPS FIX! RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!



    ... should I really bother with this though? It's a beta driver, and right now XIV runs pretty flawlessly for me at 1680x1050 and just 2x AA.
