Hello, thanks for taking a moment to read my post.
I just started playing FFXIV today. Everything is going great. I was skeptical before starting considering I'm usually the kind of person that encounters millions of problems when it comes to getting started on a new game. May it be bad luck - or may it be that I lack proper knowledge of dealing with graphics and gaming - who knows? Probably both!
Anyway. I'll get to the point. I really am only having one problem with my graphics. Everything seems to run fine, but my all player characters and non-player characters like to flicker in and out of the game constantly. I've tried messing around with the graphics options in and out of the game but each time it always results in the same flickering annoyance.
The other parts of the game (Login screen or the cut scenes) all work just fine. The cut scenes are beautiful!
I'm using Windows 7 32-bit (Parallels 7 Mac OSX) - I really dont think being on a mac is the problem, since many other high end graphics games (online) work just fine for me. I've also had some friends through other games tell me that they run FFXIV very well on their macs using Parallels or Boot.
Intel Core i5 CPU 3.60GHz
ATI Radeon HD 5750
Not sure if any other information will really be necessary to post (again, I'm definitely not skilled at understanding computer graphics).
And, I dont know if this is a big deal or not, I'm directly connected to my internet.
Of course I have updated everything I can think of and both ends of my computer say everything is working 100% the way it should.
If this has been posted on before, my apologies since I haven't been able to find a post on it.
Hopefully someone out there has been through this and knows how to fix it. Thank you!
