If you signed up for the beta, but didn't get the official invitation yet, you can download the ffxiv beta installer here. http://dev-na.ffxiv.com
You just log in with your account id and password, then proceed to the download page.

I am not a beta tester yet, and no, I didn't do any kind of hacks to get to that page. That simply came up thru google. But anyways, getting inside that site allows you to take a good look at what's going on in the game instead of speculating.

The installer is 118 mb, but the version update takes awhile. Sigh, I'm at 1% with 25+ hours left on download.

Anyways, take a good look at the Beta Manual, very interesting.

You are a tester dude, lol.

Those who haven't been invited can't log-in to the site.

S-E's email probably didn't go through or something. Now get the client and test away :D.

Also to Dodoy, open your ports.

The only emails I got were Beta start date, and beta test client download availability, but I never got any email with a link to that site, so I wasn't sure if I've been officially selected, or I have to wait a bit until I get an email with a link to download. I really wish they emailed me with "Congratulations, you have been selected to be a beta tester, download here". I have been itching, so excited on this lol. Anyways, try logging in and see if you can get in. You might be able to get in, if you are a future beta tester.

I was able to log in, download and update but was unable to sign in once the update was finished. I recieved no email and I have no beta key and got no invitation.

There are no and never were any beta keys. You can either log in with your account or you can't.

If you are logging in and downloading, you are in. I haven't had a chance to look at the page for test times, but if you can't log into the game, it's because the test isn't going on at that time.

If you didn't receive an E-mail inviting you to the beta, you won't be able to log in. You don't have to do anything to your account page. If you were invited, once you log in with your Square Enix account, it will either let you in, or give you the message you got.

I think that means you are not a tester, or you got selected today (got your email saying you are a winner, I mean, selected) but you can only log in tomorrow.

If you're saying what I think you are, it's important to note that those selected for the beta test ARE NOT supposed to be able to log into the forums or anything until the 13th (tomorrow).
If someone were to have been invited recently, they would be lucky if they could log on today.

I read somewhere on this forum that the e-mail said to keep trying. Some people may already be able to log into the site, and some will soon.

I signed up for the beta and got an email from SquareEnix telling me I've been selected.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We would first like to express our appreciation for your interest in
FINAL FANTASY XIV, and thank you for your application. It is our
pleasure to inform you that you have been selected for the role of
FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Tester.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Requested testing platform: Windows PC

Game Login: Your Square Enix Account Login/Password
Tester Site ID/Password: Your Square Enix Account Login/Password
----------------------------------------------------------------------

But all the email has regarding what the heck to do next is to go to: http://dev-na.ffxiv.com.

I already registered after buying FF13 so I have my Square Enix Account Login/Password. Once I log into http://dev-na.ffxiv.com, there is no further info. No download client link, no FFXIV link, just a bunch of admin options. How do I download the game and start playing!? They made FFXI hard to login on too, im already getting ticked...

Beta, not Alpha right?

There is no download link...

you shouldnt encourage peopel to download the client when they dont have invite , it will slow it down for us who do have it


Except that the slow part of the download is the updating, which is performed with a torrent. So the more uses you have in the pool the faster everyone will update.

You can't download the client without accessing the beta site, which is for people who have been invited to the beta only. I think this was an oversight on the OP's part.

You're asking the wrong forums. If you see the admin posts, shift around the forums until you find the client. If you still can't find it you can post a question thread I'm sure.
