    [Windows Only]
    The option ?Run in Windowed Mode? has been added to the ?General? tab of the FINAL FANTASY XI Config Tool. Checking this box and saving the new settings will run the game in windowed mode the next time you start FINAL FANTASY XI.

    *When checking this box, the message ?You may experience lower frame rates or other problems depending on your computer's specifications. Uncheck the box and use full screen mode to improve performance.? will be displayed. To switch to windowed mode, you will be required to select ?Yes? from the subsequent options provided.
    **Using the default settings while in windowed mode may cause problems with the game screen.
    The following settings are suggested if any problems are encountered in windowed mode.
    These settings are a general example, and the optimal values may differ depending on the graphic card, etc. being employed.

    Warnings for Windowed Mode

    After changing the settings, the size of the window will be displayed under ?Overlay Graphics Resolution? on the ?Screen Size? tab. While in windowed mode, it is possible to alter the window size by clicking and dragging on the edge of the window with the mouse. Press and hold the Shift key to maintain the same vertical and horizontal proportions. Right-click on the title bar and select ?Default Size? to return the window to the default window size setting.

    Even in the case where the maximum value for the ?Overlay Graphics Resolution? is set to the same value as the full screen display, the window will be slightly smaller than the full screen.

    It is not possible to take screenshots in windowed mode by pressing the Alt key and the Print Screen key.

    The brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc. of windowed mode will differ slightly from full screen mode.

    You may lose your connection and be returned to PlayOnline when performing the following actions while FINAL FANTASY XI is running:
    Activating certain screen savers
    Starting other applications

    After installing the expansion disc Wings of the Goddess, or the Final Fantasy XI: Vana'diel Collection, and attempting to download the version update, the error code "POL-12313" will be displayed. Retrying the download will allow the version update to proceed normally
    I really hope they've not messed up Sam to much, they already nerfed(and rightly so) Y/G/K once after the 2hander patch and now we get a full ws nerf along with the a general 2 hander nerf... ****ing gay. The 2nd hander STR/DEX needed to stay, it made alot of ****ing **** equipment SE put out useful, so **** all meriting DD'ing ninja, axe using war's, and moaning thf's and monks cos endgame just got ****ter without the 2hander buff for small Ls's.

    Plus if the skillchain buffs don't come inthe next batch of notes for the patch onthe 22nd SE can GTFO.

  2. #2
    SAMs should not able able to solo VT mobs tho tobal, or did SE already address that?

  3. #3
    they stopped that with the Y/G/K patch 2 weeks after the 2hander patch, bringing Y/G/K damage down to 900-1.2k normal with freak/double att making it them 1.1-1.5k, but these depend on external factors like sneak attack, str/att base and overwhelm

  4. #4
    Seems SE have broke FFxi, most mob A.I. seems totally messed up(spamming nothing but tp moves) at the moe and all 2hander damager on HNM's = oh dear.

    RNG new JA has broke the game again, can you say 600 crit's, 3000 barrages.... do SE ever ****ing test anything

    All the new equipment is crap with sam and nin getting nothing again.

    I broke and just placed WotG order. Like the sound of the new RNG JA and tempted to try out Scholar.

    Where you seeing the equipment lists Tobal? (no new NIN gear surprises me very little tho )

  6. #6
    I'm hoping VG+ ship my PS2 & PC copies of this today. I'd have them for Friday if they ship them today.

  7. #7
    The new RNG ability doesn't seem all that powerful to me, but if people are noticing a difference it's only to put right an il-deserved nerf. I was hitting TW skeleton mobs in Xarcard last night with it active for just over 100 damage, sounds low but it all depends on the mob - Helped out Yen with the Snoll Tzar and noticed that each arrow was doing 321 damage per shot, only 200 less than EES lol.

    Edit: I do like how the duration of the ability lasts exactly as long as the reuse timer tho, unless of course you zone, die or cancel it manually.

    That's against HNMLS mobs right? Because it sounds close to what RNGs used to have against standard mobs.

  9. #9
    VT/It birds, so it does have an advantage but 600 on crit, 300-400 normal shots = sick. Rng's use to hit for 200'ish pre nerf.

    New items list from patch,
