This is already reminding me of those days when I was off work during XI.

Sitting here downloading updates, just to be near completion and hear maintenance is announced.

Is it still down as of now? I've seen updates since then, but I'm getting the dreaded 1015 error when I click "Start", presumably before I make a character.

It could be worse, to me it means that they are fixin' ****. That's always a good thing. I got a good few hours in already and I'm pretty happy with the experience so far.

Re: The http://www.ffxiv-status.com/ site. it seems to be 1<3 min behind real-time, which is still really good. As soon as my server went down (Besaid) I checked there and it was still up. About 1 minute later and it was down, followed by all the other servers.

They probably unpluged their modems so they can reset memory usage (sarcasm).

Last update on site:

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties where the version update will not download any further than a certain point. Investigation and recovery work is currently underway, but we ask for your patience as this matter is resolved.

ffxiv-status.com says that the patch server is back up. Everybody who has been trying to update might wanna give it another shot now.

Hopefully the gameplay servers aren't far behind.

EDIT: Maybe not -everybody-, it will probably knock the server right back on its *** XD

I can't even get to a page that will give me a key - let alone trying to get the downloads! I got Part 1 downloaded last night but had to go on to bed. And the site where you apply for your key has been saying the same thing since last night:

http://entry.ffxiv.com/busy/

dang dang dang dang dang!!!

Oh well, I may just wait for the actual one to come out too - at least then I'll have all I need to "try" to play, I just hope it's worth the money I'm putting out for it.

Good luck to those of you who may actually get this stuff to work. I'm at a loss myself. I read the information some of you provided on downloading and mirrors and torrent and such, but I'm afraid I'm too noobish to understand most of it. So many files! And me with Windows 7 just recently and still trying to figure where certain files go. Why couldn't Microsoft leave that part of it alone and make it the same as it was before??

In any event, have fun, those of you who can.

I'll be happy if they have 50% up-time from now till end of beta, problems are to be expected. Every time they servers go down that's one time it isn't going to go down past the 22nd.

UPDATE FROM DEV SITE:



We would like to take this opportunity to provide an update regarding the congestion of the Square Enix Account Management System.

Currently the Square Enix Account Management System congestion is ongoing and we apologise for the inconvenience. If you receive an error please wait a while and try again as our technical staff are doing their best to solve the problem.

In light of this we have decided to temporarily restrict the number of FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test registrations codes being given out. If you are unable to receive a registration code please wait a while and try again later.

Once again we are apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.


----

I can get into character creation, but then an error... Seems like we have to wait some more.

Geeeeze

I would like to think they have this under control ... but really its been a mess lately. The Beta.exe was available then wasn't available, they stopped handing out codes, the registration website was hard to use and then went down intermittently due to traffic. Sometimes works, but for the most part its all messed up.

Wow SE ... just wow.

We are less than a month from release and the traffic load for the website couldn't be anticipated? Really? Kind of scared of the network code at this point. I understand there is going to be *hiccups* but we been drooling for weeks (us that didn't get into the closed beta) and we are still drooling and now faced with a frustrating process of getting to even try it out on Open Beta which isn't really available atm.

/rant

Ok I will get over it. I just assumed that after 14 final fantasies and one MMO already shipped to market they would have a better system down for customers. But registering on the website and setting up a avatar is just as bad as everything else. Convoluted, overly complicated and barely functional. SE pls fix!!!
