Has anyone tried this, and or runs FFXI off a remote desktop client like or say VNC? Was just curious because sometimes at work we use programs like that and it occurred to me maybe I can run FFXI off of it lol

As you may know since you use VNC, there is lag from whats on the screen to whats being presented on your screen. I've done this and seen it done, but its not worth it unless your wanting to just craft/talk/ or do some light safe soloing/farming.

There is basically no refresh rate, so you have to constantly keep clicking something in-game to refresh the screen.

I have used it for crafting, muling, auction house stuff, mild quests, or low-level farming, but would never use it for parties or fighting events.
