Ok so yesterday I bought FFXI Ultimate Collection Abyssea edition on Steam, download went fine and the game installed perfectly. I then started the game and the Playonline launcher started patching, so far so good. I then get greeted with a page that tells me I need a Playonline account with 2 options one for people who already have a Playonline account and one for those who don't, I click the latter of the 2 and get shown a link that directs me to a page about linking Playonline accounts with Square Enix accounts, seems as I had neither I proceeded to make a Square Enix account, I then click the button in the account management page that allows you to make a Playonline account and enter my product code, but to my dismay a message tells me that I am too young to make an account and that i need to get a parent to do it for me, of course with no instructions on how to do this....
I also somehow managed to make a Playonline thing through the actual client( probably the first of the 2 options I mentioned before) it appears as a 'Playonline id' and is in a little rectangle next to the list of options in the launcher, when I made it I had to put in my SE account information and add a new id and password, but when I click on it, it lets me login with the new password but when I click the second option to login it accepts neither my new password or my SE account one.
Sorry if this didn't make any sense or is TL;DR but any help would be tremendously appreciated ^_^
Also I know this has probably been asked before but I didn't find any answers on the threads I saw :/ Sorry in advance.
