    Default Good bye FFXI... :(

    I've been playing FFXI for about 2 years now and throughout the years, I have been using visa gift cards to pay off the fee. But in the last month or so, SE introduced a payer authentication service which is mandatory to use which does some to verify the charges and other stuff. BUT, gift cards can't do this so I don't have a way to play!!!

    I miss Vana'Diel...

    Give it a month or so and you'll feel fine.


    There's plenty of better other MMO's out there.

    I disagree with that post.

    Well, aren't you eighteen now? You could get a credit card.

    And I haven't played FFXI so I can't really say, but hell yes there are better MMOs out there. The best one being Ultima Online, of course.

    I'm wondering if this might be my problem. I tried to log into XI for the last few days cause lo and behold I'm actually in the mood to play and I get the invoice option. Yet for some reason, the game won't let me play... About the time I get to the Character select screen, I get the "FFXI program smurfed up, wish to report?" and then the game shuts down. Is there a connection or is it on my end?

    No, there is no connection. Sounds like it's on your end.

    If it was an issue with payment, you'd be able to get to the character select screen, but character's name would be grayed out or something similar and unavailable for selection since the Content ID would need renewed or whatever. I've no idea what exactly would be causing you to crash at the Character Selection, but I imagine it has something to do with FFXI's numerable incompatibilities with various hardware (thank you PS2 limitations!). For example, I know some graphics cards have trouble running FFXI without using hacked drivers. It's a good place to start looking.

    Sounds like files of the area your character is in has corrupted.

    You can do that on the log in screen of POL.

    I already checked, they say my files are fine. The actual start up screen is a bit weird too. The background doesn't really move anymore and I lose control of the mouse. It just seems off...

    Is this computer, by any chance, relatively new?
