Hi there all. I recently bought the FFXI collection on steam when it was on sale. I tried to play it, but ran into performance issues. After some searching, I found the Vista compatible playonline viewer. However, since I bought the steam version, I don't have any disks to install the files, only the ones downloaded from Steam. I tried to copy the steam files into the FFXI directory for the vista play online client, but no luck.
I've also tried copying the Vista client into the directory where Steam's play online client is. It copied my information over and runs through steam, but I still have performance issues. It did update the client after I did that, not sure if that had any effect.
Can you all offer me any suggestions? I'd really like to play, but the game is unplayable using Steam at the moment.
As a note, I'm running Vista 64 bit, and my graphics card is an Nvidia 8800M GTS.
Thank you for your help.
