I got the disc yesterday and got everything installed and updated(6 hour update for PS2 version with slow 25/15 Cable speed) and so far everything seems to be going good. To be honest it does boot a lot faster than my wifes Laptop and there seems to be less lag and load times, granted I have a solid state drive in my PS3 so that may play a part.
Anyway thanks again to marsupialboy, so happy that you were able to help me and the note was awesome! Thanks again.
Nice! Was it hard to get a SSD in your PS3? Mine is starting to run low on the disk, so I'm thinking about getting a larger drive for it. Keep us updated on how the game performs with it. Thanks! :)
Getting the drive in there was no problem, and as for how the game performs , much better than my wife’s PC. I know a lot of people say that you can run FFXI on any PC from the past 6-10 years and I agree however the one thing that may be overlooked is how you will need to adjust your settings to make it playable. I would need to take the settings down to the lowest to get it to load as fast at boot and have the areas populate (Lower, upper, Jeuno or any populated area) as fast. Over all the PS3 is holding its own and I have no issues as of yet but I have not made it to any of the new prime locations.
On a side note , yes it looks like crap, but not unplayable, in fact I still play games like Brave Fencer Musashi (ps1) on my TV so I guess I am just not so much bothered by it when its the content of the game that I am interested in and not the graphics.
On another side note, I decided to get a new laptop so I can get the expansion, looks like I am officially back. I got a Sony Vaio VPCSE2KGX . If any tech guys are reading this and have a minute I had a question that I posted about the laptop on the Sony support site and have not gotten any response. I am having some trouble understanding what is going on with my Laptop. The system according to the spec sheet can have a maximum RAM of 8 GB however I installed 8 on top of the 4 on board and I can see and (system says anyway) use 12(well near it, less the OS usage) but Sony support says that I the laptop will not access all 12. So I guess i am not sure I trust their answer and wanted to check with others because :
1) The Intel i-7 2640M can use up to 16 GB of RAM
2) Windows 7 Pro can use up to 192GB of RAM
I can’t seem to find the exact model for the mother board however knowing that the i-7 and the OS can use more than 8GB and under Computer>properties it shows 12 GB total and 11.91 available I don’t know why the system would not access all of it if needed. Even the Bios shows it at 12GB. I am thinking that the Tech support rep either doesn’t know what they are talking about or I am missing something?
Thanks in advance for any feed back.
