I am playing on the Cerberus server, I was riding a chocobo and then got off as soon as I neared Windurst, I entered Windurst and the game froze and it said "playOnline is not responding" so I had no choice but to Quit Now.

I tried again, and it crashed as soon as FFXI started.

So I did a System Restore back two weeks but still the same result. Any help?

Yeah. I use windower but I already tried without the windoer. It still crashed...

Mine kinda did that to... but only with the sound.

I played around with the BGMs :[

T_T after the major patch. FFXI was either soundless or beeping horribly.

Well, the problem is that the Windurst files have corrupted. D:

Does anyone know which files they are? Can you help me locate them. I can ask a friend to send me the file.

Might have to just reinstall the game from CD.

Ok, now something is really going wrong. I am now uninstalling so I can reinstall it again. But now, I am unable to even uninstall because there is an error!

I had a similar problem like yours before but I was able to reinstall it. Did you just try installing without uninstalling?

I don't know how to do that, can you walk me through it?

By the way, I tried the "Check Files" on POL Viewer. But it keeps freezing on 56.DAT.

Try having POL rescan the game files.

I said, I just tried that. But it keeps freezing on 56.DAT.

It can be that one that is corrupted but the only problem is that there are a lot of 56.DAT files.

I didn't notice that post. Try moving all the 56.dat files to a different directory, and then rescan. With a bit of luck POL try to redownload the missing dat files.

Alright.

I did that but it froze at 81.DAT

I think it's freezing at a certain time it's running! D:

Um, put the CD in and then click Install the Game?

When I do that, it says an error! Fukkin' Dammit... This is getting helpless...

keep removing the files it says are corrupted. Make a list (rom included) and we'll see if we can copy and send you the files that are missing / tempered with. You'll have to manually insert them in the files.

Have you been .dat tempering? Happened to me once when I accidentally deleted lvl 21 head gear and I kept crashing in lower Jeuno ;/

If you swapped .dats, gimme a list of the ones you changed and the Rom, I can copy you the files and you can put them back in. If you haven't been keeping tack, you're SOL buddy and you'll need to reformat your hard drive to get rid of FFXI to reinstall :P

To the person that told me to delete system32, thanks a lot...

Now I have to get a new harddrive because the system32 file is "corrupted..."

Luckily, my computer is under warranty...

No one told you to delete that! You should never randomly delete files. Move them to another folder if you want to get rid of them. I hope everything gets fixed.

Well, someone must've told me on gamefaqs...

Everyone on those forums are dicks... :(

You shouldn't need to get a new PC just because system32.dll is missing. It should be possible to fix it by using the windows XP recovery console to copy it back into the right folder. Ask some computer literate guy in your class or something. It's hella faster than getting a new machine. Plus, all your stuff will still be there.

If you are unable to find someone who knows how to do this, I could try walking you through it.

Or just shove the Windows CD into drive before turning your computer on, booting off it and following the recovery process :p Also deleting sys32.dll is a pretty big achievement xD
