Hello everyone. Over time testing the game I have found that I needed a good controller and a way to multitask while playing. I posted this on another site, but I figured I'd share here too. Hope this helps.

I run dual monitors, so I enjoy having a game in full screen while I have my misc other programs on another (IE. web browser, voice chat, instant messenger). I've discovered a couple programs to accomplish this task easy.

The first program I use, which I've had for a while, is ShiftWindow.
- What I do is set the game in windowed mode and make the resolution match that of the display I want it to be on and then shiftwindow will take it, align it perfect and make sure it fits the screen showing no border.

The second program I use, which I've just recently come acrossed, is MotioninJoy.
- This lets me plug in my PS3 controller via USB (as soon as my bluetooth usb gets here, wireless) and use it as a regular controller or emulate the xbox 360 controller.

These programs may not be limited to just these uses, but for FFXIV and many other games, I find this very useful and make my gaming experience much more enjoyable.

I found this posted by someone on FFXIVCore and on here. Sadly, I do not remember the names. This is apparently a revision of the Crysis SLI profile that enables SLI in FFXIV.

Use Geforce SLI Profile Tool in order to export your SLI profiles.
- Then add in the code below for SLI in FFXIV.
