I play ffxi with the official windower, and every time when I minimize ffxi i get an error and boots me back to the pol screen. If I open any other program, it forces a log out. I had just did a fresh install from the 08 collection disc on a windows 7 pc a week ago. anyone else have this problem? Otherwise the games runs perfectly fine in window mode.

Problem? Official windowed mode.

Solution? Guess.

Running FFXI in a windowed mode doesnt remove it's native problems. It simply runs the full screen program in a window.

If focus is lost by something else running in full screen, it will still crash. Same for being left alone in a minimized state.

The only thing you gain from it is technically that you can open up messenger or winamp during it since you basicly got a means to alt+tab without crashing the thing, or can have something produce a pop up without all too much problems.

It's enough for some. I've taken a liking to for many years in the past.

Others simply cannot go without the... shall we say... "extra benefits" the other thing offers, despite everyone you will talk to, ever, saying that they purely do it for windowing (in which case, the official one would be good enough, right?).

I've crusaded against it long enough. If you want to see my TP that badly, meh, go ahead. It's not like anyone is -not- using it these days.

Not sure which version of POL that comes with, have you installed the POL version for Vista/Win7 from the SE FFXI site?

Nothing to do with this. Official windowed mode is just **** It's when it doesn't open FFXI at all that you might suspect POL, but that's rare anymore because few people are using old shelf copes while the latest Abyssea edition fixed the problem.
