Who here uses an SSD for FFXI and can comment on the differences between this and a standard SATA III HDD, in terms of how FFXI runs. I imagine loading the game will be faster, but the entire login process takes several clicks as it is. Is there much wait time loading between POL and clicking through to terms and then finally character selection screen, or is the load time about the same time given the networking also being done at same time? Are zone loads noticeably faster or is it again limited to data coming from the network?
Edit: is there a pol registry settings for the location of log files, so that if FFXI is installed to an SSD, can I change the location of the log files so to limit writes to the SSD disk, and have the log files stored to a normal HDD.
