After playing FFXI for 10 years, I now have met a real problem, I cannot connect to my main character. I log in to everything just fine up until the very last phase, where the screen goes black and begins to load my character, and right before I actually get into the game, I get the message 'play online viewer has stopped working' I must then close the program. What's even more messed up is, my character actually loads up, because when talking to linkshell members on vent, they say, I'm actually logged in! They cannot send me tells, because I'm in offline mode or something. I can however log into my mule which is on the same account just fine. So yes.. I can log into my mule, play it, everything just fine, which is on the same account, but no, I cannot log into my main character... My main character recently was updated with the guildwork plugin, so thinking that may be the issue, I removed the guildwork plugin from my windower file, I even tried re-installing the newest version of windower, and I even tried running the game without windower altogether and I still receive the same message!!
I am at a loss, I have tried everything, renaming certain plugins, like recast, and so forth, trying everything and anything, and nothing works, I still cannot play on my main character, yet it does get logged in... This is so messed up, no my account isn't hacked, because its still wearing same gear etc, because I can see it, when you go to select which character I want to play. It hasn't left port jeuno, etc. Everything seemed to be fine, before I recently activated the guildwork plugin, and used the flush command to have everything show up on FFXIAH. I actually logged into FFXI just fine after I did this the day after, but just once, I decided to check my mule, and when I tried to log back into my main character, I have had nothing but the same problem "play online viewer has stopped working'.
It's not my computer or graphics card etc, because, like I said, I can actually play my mule... which is on the same account, the only account I own...
If anyone has had this happen, and or knows how to fix this, please help, I'm at the point where I feel like I must re-install all of FFXI and playonline etc... this really really sucks, anyone please please help!
