  • Final Fantasy XIV discussion thread

    I know there's already a few FFXIV thread, but they are mostly about being released on xxxx platform, release date etc. I am starting this thread hoping this will become more of a discussion thread like the Final Fantasy XI thread we have.


    I'll start off simple with Final Fantasy XIV actual images.

    Beta period information
    Q. How long do you expect the alpha and beta tests to last?
    A. The alpha test is a low-population test that we’re running on one server only. The server’s name is “Shadowlord.” The test will last for four hours in each region (Japan, Europe and North America) and take place three days a week. After we’ve tested the stability and the load the servers can take, we will be moving into Beta test phase one (B1 –Manly). B1 will be the same as alpha, but take place on multiple servers. Since we’ll also be testing different speeds of character growth, we’ll be going through a few data wipes, as well. After that, we’ll start Beta test phase two (B2), which will reflect the feedback we received from our testers. From B2, servers will run 24 hours a day and the product will be much closer to the finished version. The PS3 testing will also start from this version. From B2 we plan on increasing the number of world servers used and increase the servers’ load slowly to a few hundred thousand people to get ready for normal service. Finally, the few weeks right before we begin service, we’ll hold an open beta test, but only Limsa Lominsa and its surrounding region will be playable. This is under a fifth of what will be playable in the final version.

          I couldn't get into FFXI, not sure if that was because I had purchased WoW at the same time and found that more enjoyable, or was focusing more on that, but the time I did play FFXI I wasn't too impressed.

          Will be good if FFXIV is much better, doubt I'll rush to buy it though.
          I long for that of which i dream of...

                FFXI was the best MMO made, so I'm assuming this will only build off of the things that made it successful and just be that much better.

                I'll probably buy this game when it comes out, but I don't look into games or listen to hype about games that I want. Still haven't really looked at screenshots or videos yet, I want to play it myself to make any judgement about it.

                  So glad they worked on the combat system after those alpha videos leaked out and the responses were pretty negative.

                        1. Go to folder FFXIVBenchmark\data\
                        2. Rename FFXivWinBenchmark.exe to 3DMark06.exe for CrossFireX ( Crysis.exe for SLI )
                        3. Copy full screen wrapper d3d9.dll to this folder. ( Not required for SLI )
                        4. Run 3DMark06.exe ( Crysis.exe for SLI )
