So yeah, client crashes if you alt+tab while in fullscreen mode (yeah yeah I know... I'm hoping this gets fixed)

In the meantime though, you're not completely screwed if you've got Steam (which btw is free). Register FFXIV as a non-Steam game and run it through the Steam client and you can have the Steam overlay (shift+tab in game) which gets you a rudimentary web browser. It's like a bastardized version of IE but it's better than nothing at least until this gets fixed.

In fact, this post is being made in that very browser with the game running underneath it in fullscreen mode.

Also we could set up a steam group, and chat in-game using the steam overlay chat client.

I'm all for that, and any Steam-related fun (TF2, L4D, etc). I'll add my Steam name to my profile, so feel free to add me!

you know, I'm half tempted to go get steam just for this chat even though I don't know most of the people here. Too quiet playing without some form of voice chat XD

I'd agree except that I feel like I'm sitting next to a jet engine when I'm playing :)

There's a "windower" available for FFXIV right here
I'm not in the beta and so i don't know if this actually works (and if it's virus free). Just bumped into it on a fan site and decided to let you guys know so you can try it out if you want to.
I'm not responsible if your system goes up in fire after downloading this windower ;)

You can run FF xiv in windowed mode. Not sure if you knew that or not. It does eat some FPS though, or so i've heard.

I need to refresh the topic because I have question about Steam Overlay. Does it slow up FFXIV performance ?
