I see they have said that 2 am GMT will be the release for open beta, but there is no file to download anymore?? A friend of mine is downloading as we speak, he got to it before they removed it from the entry site last night...and it says it takes 26 hours. So it kinda bugs me that I cant start it yet..anyone knows when it will be back up?

You know what file I'm talking about? Yesterday you were able to download a installer file from the bottom of the entry site on every single language(japan, NA, GB, France and germany). Today that is gone...

unless someone mentions something to someone about it, or if someone else has a website that got it before they took it down, looks like nobody getting to download the client

Just download the installer from fileplant just do a search for it. You will have a lot of updating to do though. You could also search torrent sites for the client.

There a number of download hosting sites that have it, like FilePlanet as mentioned ("Final Fantasy XIV Beta Client" or something there). That's how a number of people were getting prepped prior to the official download link, too. ^^ And you're still able to update even without the official download (update server's active, they just removed the download link).

Presumably the download link will be back today sometime, though it seems a little odd that they would let people start early then take it away. *shrug*

You will probably need to portforward in order for it to send the information needed. Also, if your running wireless, find an ethernet cable and hook up because it is a whole lot faster!

Also, sometimes it's just really slow. For instance, last night I worked on installing on my laptop (that won't be able to play very well but should work as a character creator) and the booter update took a really long time even with ports forwarded properly and having a number of remote connections. Meanwhile, the client update finished overnight as compared to when I first did it on my main computer and it took pretty much a full day. So it varies. :)
