Recommended is a hexacore? Really?

I agree with some of the other posters in here - they are going to find they have a very small playerbase at launch as it is without a Ps3 and Xbox360 option; this is just going to cut that small number down even more. Dual cores are more of the norm among average people, with general gamers coming in at the quad core mark and enthusiasts rawking the latest hexas.

Good luck with that, SE.


If you tried to play FFXI at launch you'll remember there being a very similar problem with the system requirements for that game.

SE isn't terribly interested in building a game that can be played on the average system, they've made that pretty clear with the FFXI and now FFXIV requirements. I believe it has something to do with not wanting to "compromise the experience."

Oh, for the record, the i7 920 is a quad-core not hexa-core processor


quad core hyper-threaded = hexa-core ya digg??


hex = 6 so no.

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.


I thought of it first:

Edit: I'm also rather annoyed that for such a high end game, they're using DX9C still. One would think that they would be using 10/11. Even the minimum spec GPU supports DX10 IIRC. What the **** is the point of a shiny new GPU that supports DX11 if the highest-spec game (soon to be) on the market doesn't support DX11.


The thing that really bugs me is that a lot of the graphics tricks they are using are actually more efficient in DirectX 10 than in DirectX 9.0c Using DirectX 10 would have actually lowered the system requirements a bit.
