I, and apparently a LOT of other people, can't get the downloader to even launch. I've been through the beta forums, core's forums, and ZAM's forums, and no one has any idea why this is happening to people.
So... since SE isn't helping people with this, does anyone have a reliable link to a full client torrent or free download? I'm looking for the full game here, not just the patch torrent files. Hopefully, I can get around the downloader's launching issues if I can get the full game or ffxivsetup.exe file.
I'm open to other solutions, but if you're just guessing or going to recommend driver updates, etc. I'm waaay past that stage of trying to figure this out (as I'm sure the 100s of others who posted this problem in the beta forum are too).
Thanks for the help and patience everyone.
