    The community is great, it's just that theres not as many new players as there was when it first came out (obviously).

    I have already been in a few parties and since we have a group going it's not really that big of a deal atm.

    Almost done with the patch now, took its time....

    I'll be making a thief and see where it goes from there, bare with me though if you are vets in this game, last time I played it I only got to level 10ish and then dropped it for WoW. Do you still need a invite to a server like you used to back in the days? or can players freely choose what server to join now? If so witch one are you folks on?

    Actually have to agree with Norsu, I remember the controlls being messy on the PC, but not this messy..

    Spent about 10 minutes ingame now and their already getting on my nerves, might be exellent for the console gamer, but not having a decent gamepad and running this game on the keyboard is beyond horrid. Are there any decent tweaks you can do to easen this up a bit? Otherwise im probably putting this game on the shelf again for now, one would have thought they had improved that side of the game after all these years.

    I felt the same but you just have to get used to them. I can help you out a bit if you join our vent.

    Everyone who want's to play there is a party thread in the FFXI section with our current IGN's and our server.

    I might have mispelled Ginta's IGN though.

    Edit: I think me and Ginta are going in-game right now Scoop. Make sure your on the same server as us.

    Aye I might give it another go tomorrow, falling asleep on the keyboard here. Made one of those cat thingys, thief, on the Asura server and Windafola as starting area. I'll add you folks tomorrow and have another go.

    Those complaining about the ugly resolution, there is a fix.
    Open registry and navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PlayOnlinexx\Squareenix\FinaFantasyXI

    xx = EU or US

    Then set key 003 and 004 to the same resolution as keys 001 and 002

    Then run the game and be amazed

    For everyone complaining about the controls. Go to Config-> Misc 2 -> Compact Keyboard.

    WASD for movement and ARROW keys for camera, tada.

    Yea, I tried that out but I prefer the number pad now for some reason. The only problem I seem to have is the enter key and the arrow keys. It seems a bit weird to go through my menu and move the camera with my thumbs.

    I remember reading your post from before so I know you have been playing FFXI awhile. Do you know how to open my menu on the keyboard when mobs are near? Everytime I press enter to cast a cure on myself it targets the closest mob. If theres not one there, then I can bring up my own menu.

    And...last question. Do you have a good guide for macros? Spells and everything. I've only seemed to get Cure to work on a target. I also know it's possible to macro spells to Party Member 1, Party Member 2 etc. I'm a White Mage so it would be pretty helpful.

    Wait..one more actually really important question.

    Me and Ginta went to the magic shop 2 days ago. I was level 6 (WHM). There were spells available in the shop for me (Cure, Cure II, Protect etc).

    I went back to the shop at Level 8 and Cure II seems to not be in the shop anymore. The only spell is Curaga (I think) which isn't available until Level 18 (Cure II was available to use at level 11). Do you know why this is? I looked in the auction house and it's just to expensive to buy it from there. 3k AH, 1k something at the shop.

    Thanks in advance if you can answer these.

    * F1 always targets yourself. The other F keys target people in your alliance/party.

    You can assign all the keys on your keyboard actually, well most of them. Its in the config somewhere. I just put my main Menu Buttons somewhere where I found it comfortable.

    * As for spells, check out www.ffxiclopedia.com. If you go to the white mage page for example, it lists all spells and where to find them.
    Spells are usually spread out across many cities and different NPCs. And sadly, some are very expensive for beginners. I was lucky and didn't play a mage job until I was way into the game.
    White Mage page is here: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/White_Mage

    * As for macros:

    Magic: /ma "SPELL" <stpc>; --> If you put <me> at the end it casts on yourself. <t> in the end makes it attack the monster. <stpc> is the one you want. If you press your macro your cursor hovers over yourself and you can use the F keys to cycle through your party or alliance to choose the person to buff/cure.

    Example:

    Offensive magic: /ma "Stone" <t>;

    Healing/Buffing Magic: /ma "Cure" <stpc>;
    Click it and then cycle to the member you want to cure. Takes some getting used to but you will love it once you are used to it.


    For physical jobs macros function the same way.

    Job Ability:

    /ja "AbilityName" <me>;

    Weapon Skill

    /ws "Tachi Gekko" <t>;


    * And yeah background resolution is important. So take a look into that everyone, makes the game look way better.


    * Old beginner guide an old friend wrote, helps a lot in the beginning:
    http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/User:Evyen/FFXIguide


    * Bookmark these pages, you will need them to play the game.

    FFXI Auction House: www.ffxiah.com
    Wiki which has all the quest, missions and info you could want:
    www.ffxiclopedia.com


    *Hope that helps, happy adventures in Vana'diel. ^_^/

    Thanks, them guides will be really helpful.

    As for the Cure II part, I forgot to mention that I went to the same exact shop. It was located in Port Windurst. Unless somehow I went to the wrong NPC..

    Some NPC only stock items under certain conditions. Like in Windurst some NPC only have a specific item if Windurst is number one in conquest.
    If they had the item on Saturday but on Sunday it was gone, it's because Windurst lost in conquest. Conquest Tally is always on a Sunday.

    FFXI definately is very hard to get into and not a MMO for everyone. But I've been ingame for over 2 years and have found it very rewarding. It just takes time and dedication.
    As long as you manage to find a linkshell with some helpful people you'll be fine.

    Oh, I'm loving it so far even if it's hard getting used to it. I have been wanting to play it long term for awhile but I just haven't bought it. I saw it on steam for 5$ and said wth..I'll be resubbing for sure.

    So, I would now have to buy Cure II from the Auction house if I want to get it?

    You can either buy it at the Auction House or at one of the locations listed there.

    The beginner cities only stock it if that nation is 2nd or 1st in conquest, but Selbina always has it.
    You'll probably pass through Selbina anyway on your way to Valkurm Dunes once you level there.

    They don't. Their payment options suck to be honest. 3d Secure Credit Cards only for most countries and Germany also gets direct bank payment as an option.
    Other than that they don't offer many options, Square Enix is pretty paranoid of fraud.

    Someone posted it on the previous page, you have to change the background resolution in the registry.

    Just do this:

    Frustrated why the game wont let you set background textures past 1024 x 1024?? Look below to set it even higher!! The game looks amazing running background resolutions of 2048 x 2048!!

    Step 1:go to your run command and type REGEDIT and click ok.

    Step 2: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then click on software.

    Step 3: Click PlayOnlineUS and Square Enix folder, then the FinalFantasyXI tab.

    Step 4: You should see 2 files 003 and 004. Double click and change the value on 003 to 800, and change 004 to 800. You will notice the values to the right after you click ok will change to the corresponding resolution.

    2048 x 2048 = 800 and 800
    1600 x 1600 = 640 and 640
    1280 x 1280 = 500 and 500

    ***I am not responsible for problems this may cause by entering incorrect info! be sure to check to see if your hardware can handle these settings.****

    Enjoy!

    So to cast protect on myself I should put in:

    /ma "Protect" <stpc> <me>

    Or would it be:

    /ma "Protect" <me>

    I'll go in-game and test these out soon but since I can't alt+tab out I have to finish up a few things first.

    Edit: Could you link me to the text mod that you have? That looks much more readable.
