Just spent all day downloading POL updates before installing my FFXI discs. Turns out they're not compatible with the Windows 7 POL viewer. Had to uninstall and start again. Fuck my life.

I'd recommend using the torrent found here when it comes to updating, you can bet it's going to be a lot faster than SE's system.

I doubt it makes a difference. Worst case, if you're missing a few EU specific files (assuming there even are any?), the POL updater will download them, but it'll be an insignificant number of files.

Regardless of regional version, POL will still run a file check and probably download a few hundred files missing from the most recent update.

Right. I know this is going to sound stupid. Where do I put them once I've downloaded the zip? Or do I just open the POL viewer and let it place them for me?

Also, does this include the viewer update? That's what I'm rocking atm.

I'd actually have to download the torrent to be certain, but using other FFXI torrents, typically it's a zip file containing the same file structure as the PlayOnline directory.

In my case, I typically unzip the files then just drag and drop everything into C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI, but your directory may be different. Then it's as simple as saying "merge and overwrite everything."

If you're uncertain about using NA files, I'm sure you could find a torrent for the full EU FFXI game.

I don't think that includes POL updates, but I don't think it's a very big update either.

Mm. Cheers. I'll just use the NA thing. If it decides to crap out I'm right at the start of the reinstall process any way. Won't make much difference.

Thanking you. I asked the douchenuggets in =10 but all it got me was red arrows. Smiley: laugh

I'll just leave both downloads running overnight. I'm sure it'll be sorted by tomorrow.

They used to call us the CJM crew. "Circle jerk morons", that is. We were the old guard and they were uppity noobs. Now the old guard are gone and the uppity noobs run the show. Sigh... Smiley: disappointed

i'm not entirely sure (but pretty sure) that when relax was an uppity noob, he just posted as if he was old guard already. doing so caused him to immediately be treated as old guard.

there's a forum dynamics lesson there: want to be "old guard"? lurk awhile, figure out how to post, then immediately post as if you were always there. i went from anonymous uppity poster to old guard pretty much immediately myself.

(or, of course, you could not care about forum dynamics and post however you want--which is actually what i do/did. however, it's very clear if you watch how noob/old guard interaction works on gaming and other sites that new people pretending to be have been around forever generally works as long as their posts don't contain stupidity that betrays their noobishness. it's best not to test it--no referring to yourself as old guard, or questioning the credibility of actual old guard--but after even a month of quiet "i've been here forever" posting you'll probably be able to test it. join date can always make a big difference when testing it as well. it's probably a good idea to have some strategies for dealing with the backlash; e.g. "my arguments are valid, even if i joined 3 months ago! look at this logic: [A B C]" is NOT a good strategy. don't refer directly to join date.)

now i'll pop back into the shadows of the internet.

I had an account already, with like 3k posts. I didn't like that it was tied to my old email and used my regular handle instead of something related to my character. It definitely wasn't because people were gloating constantly about rating me down at every opportunity at the time.

instead of pointing out that i characteristically never looked at how many posts you (or anyone) had/has, or mentioning that i'd probably interacted with you several times before realizing that there was a pattern, i am going to say that you are lying at that what i wrote above was true.

really though, i've seen it often on other boards, e.g. beeradvocate--which is amusingly 90% more braindead than ffxi alla =10 ever was. and here i thought that if everyone posted drunk like i do, the boards would be better...

Yeah thanks, I'll do that. It's like £17.99. I'll do it next month. Seems like less of a headache than trying to do it all manually.


But yes. If Sylph doesn't work out for me, which one of you noobs wants to fix me up with a decent rinksherr?

Well it starts with the same letter as Sylph.

With regard to server transfer, do you have to pay per content ID? I've got a crapload of mules. :/

So, as DRKy folk, what would you pick from the new Mogbonanza Gobbie Bagnanaza if you won first place.

Ragnarok? (The vanilla choice, easy to just spam Reso. )

Apoc? (You remember that thing you wanted like 5 years ago right?)

Calda? (For those who have recently suffered a head wound.)

Or Liberator?

I get the feeling that Liberator is not seen much because it costs about 450,000,000G and requires a lot of olde content that no one wants to help you with just to get to 75. But with the contest giving you a level 80(is this correct?) version, wouldn't this be a viable option?

It's fairly easy to get from 80 ~> 95

It's Path to 99 (Glow) is easier than a Relics.

It's @#%^ing cool as sh*t.

Easy to 5 hit

Did I mention it's @#%^ing cool/sexy/unique?

Or.....would you just level another job and do a better weapon?

Well thank @#%^ I left the game if that's the kind of crap they're peddling now.

Honestly, SE gives you guys a new class and a new island... whereas CCP give us updated missiles and reworked ships, including turning an otherwise lame-duck frigate into a sexy gunboat overnight. And give PvP an overhaul. And that's just from the most recent update.
