It would seem that I am still only able to stay connected for 15-20 minutes at a time. I thought I solved the problem but apparently not. If anyone knows how to fix this I would be greatly appreciative. It seems to only affect FFXI, Whenever I am connected to it my computer drops connection, when I am not my computer holds connection fine. Is this a fire wall issue or a port issue? (do I need to reinstall FFXI.) I use steam is it something to do with that?

I thought It was just a network issue originally but I checked it out on saturday and I only lose connection when playing FFXI, It is up all the time otherwise. (also never had this problem before, only since a few weeks ago.)


I had a similar issue a while back. It turned out to be a bad modem. I only noticed it on FFXI, but I think it had to do with when I was surfing the web, it would be idle a lot and go unnoticeable. I only noticed it when I needed a constant connection with something like a game. Not sure this is your problem but I thought I'd throw it out there.



Thats what I thought at first as well, heck my brother even did some test that showed it just dropped after 20 or so minutes however we only ever checked it with FFXI. I checked with EVE the other day just on a whim, and It was able to maintain a connection indefinitely, so it seems to be a problem with FFXI. So I tried playing some other online games, for my PS3, XBOX and PC, 2 of them had connectivity issues, 1 was DUST on the PS3 (could not connect at all to the server, so it could be down it is a Beta game) the other was TF3 on Steam.

So I am thinking that it could be my router (although it is fairly new, the modem is new as well.) something with steam, or that FFXI just has an archaic DC dimension that has very limited recovery period for dropped connections. However since I seem to be experiencing this problem mostly alone, Perhaps ill try just going to my modem without the router and see if the problem persists.

Thank you for you feedback!.


I had an issue with FFXI crashing about the same time frame as you. Is your modem in an open air space? Ours was surrounded by my girls stuffed animals and when I threw moved them for her the game stayed. Browsers didn't go down on either of our laptops and netflix ran fine on the ps3/wii u. No problems since then.

I'd love to join. I'm not exactly a n00b, but I haven't played in a few years so I might as well be. :) I'm pretty casual though since I have work + school, and this week is all about finals (like many of you apparently).

I'll be in game later tonight as "Acejester" (Yeah, still using the name I came up with 12 years ago when I was 13 :P) if anyone is on that can get me in.

Hey I'm a returning player and had picked phoenix as the server to join up on only to find it pretty much dead. I'm currently using a trial account is there a way I can switch servers easily and create a new character on Lakshmi?

If you don't mind losing any progress you made delete your Phoenix character and make a new one on Lakshmi, or you can get another content ID, and make a new character on Lakshmi and then disable your old content ID.

Recently reactivated large taru here! Thought I'd try to get back into the swing of things while I have some time off, and continue playing casually once I'm back at school. I'll be stalking you all soon OK?

I am Kosme~

Is anyone in your LS lvling the old fashioned way or is everyone rushing to lvl 99?

I'm interested in coming back to the game but not to rush to endgame. I like slow lvling that involves to meet new people and have interactions with other players (not just "invite" and "thx for party"...

Thanks.

The people that were in there last night were mostly 99. Those that were not were doing GoV in gusgen.

I got a pearl last night (thanks Ecnelis!). I will be on tonight for a bit, but will only be on sporadically through the holidays. In January I will be on with more regularity. Look forward to doing more with the LS. I hope everyone has a good and safe holiday season.

Thanks,
Sanoske

Hi, Mageaholic, Firebert here. I plan on returning when the new Seekers expansion comes out. I'd like to be part of your linkshell if you'll have me.

Sure thing, Shell is pretty small though, only a dozen or so of us and very casual. But I still welcome anyone who wishes to join. I however am currently not able to login. I forgot to top up my pay pal so my auto payment didnt go through. 6-8 business days and ill be back likely first weekend in February, granted my Ravens in the super bowl that weekend so maybe no the first weekend but the first week.

Firebert sounds familiar as well...I want to say Galka from Garuda?

Any room in your shell for a returning player on a new account? Want to get back into 11 but worried that it will be dead for new players/accounts.

Highest job i had was a lvl 70 DRK & 70 SAM on Shiva about 3 years ago

I hope everything goes well with your pay pal. I had my identity stolen like 2 weeks ago so I kinda know how you feel. Luckily for me I caught it in time before real damage was done.

This is an amazing thread...

Whenever I try to describe to someone how special FFXI was for me, I always fail to put into words why it was so special for me. It's things like this that did.

I've played dozens of games since FFXI, but never have I found a game like it. And I've always wondered what it was... The game doesn't have the most amazing gameplay, doesn't have the best graphics and wasn't very accessible... then what was it? Community like this... Just people sincerely wanting to help other people, not because they get better from it (not talking about feeling better) but just because they want to.

This game has brought me the most amazing memories, and some amazing friends that I still talk to on a regular basis even after not having played the game for over a couple of years.

Rdmcandie, you are a fine example of someone that made this game very special for me. I've never met you, but I just want to thank you for what you are doing.

I've also reactivated my account yesterday, I'm on the Ragnarok server though. Not quite sure yet what I'm about to do... might even start over with a new character, who knows...

Anyways, keep up the good work and I hope your LS will keep on going for a long long time.

There is room for everyone! Like I said small LS atm mostly casual people. I should be back up tomorrow so I will start searching for folks. Between 9AM-1PM EST and 11PM-3AM EST. So hopefully some of you folks fall into that period. If not I will be able to give you some names of folks who play in the other periods who have ability to invite as well.

Thank you for your kind words.

But yes I should be back up tomorrow Pay Pal is set to clear this afternoon while I am at work...and now that I say that I see tomorrow is Saturday so ignore my times above I should be around* most of the day.

*by around I mean logged in but not specifically in front of my PC or on FFXI the whole time.

I can give you guys a pearl if I see you online. However, I was in SchoolofLearning for 4-5 hours yesterday and didn't see anyone come online. I think it died while rdmcandie was gone.
