Many of you are saying that a game manual is linked to via the beta site....

let me share with you this screen cap of the beta application and you can point out where it is....

http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn6/ryanshori/screenffxiv.png

My theory is that you NA betas have been given it and we havn't, but do correct me if I'm wrong because none of you have been kind enough to actually link to it yet ^^;

Login with account and it is on the left hand side clrealy written.

If you are NA then I presume you replace the 'eu' with 'na'

That's the beta application page, why in the world would the manual be there? here:

https://dev-na.ffxiv.com/ubbthreads.php

Look around a little, read a little, use your brain a little and things just start falling into place.

I get this too.. It just says :

"The FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test Site can only be accessed by those who have been granted Beta Test accounts.

Beta testers can log in from the link below using their Square Enix Account. "

Maybe its only for people in previous phases?

It is tricky finding their what I would call almost hidden forums. Here is a direct link of the guide. Oh and I have tried getting into their forums for days, and it almost always times out, until I tried today.

This was the first screen I got but I tried again and then it said username/password incorrect, giving me the option to register but then saying they're not accepting new accounts, so i try to log in again and still no die u.u;

EDIT: now its taking me in circles at the initial log in stage again

There's an in-game manual at the Aetheryte, The Call of Adventure. It answers quite a few questions.

It's very large, but I can try.


Edit: Ok, so I went and copied and pasted it and it's just too huge to post. If you have a beta key, log onto the site and go read it. If you don't, you don't need it anyway, because you're not playing the game.

I have the key, i have a log in, but the page redirects in circles or the occasions where it doesnt and it gets to the forums, it tells me my username and password are incorrect.

Is it possible you could copy it into a doc or txt file and upload it somewhere? Like many others... I realy have no way of accessing it :(

That's because unless you were an Alpha or Pre-Phase 3 beta tester, you're not allowed to access the forums. But you don't need to be on the forums in order to view the update notes or the manual, that all is on the top page.

If you're saying I should be seeing it from the forum's password incorrect please log in page (not the first log in page).. then no its just one frame with the log in... no side bar like in your screenshot :(

I hope other elitists realize that we cant access it.

I too saved it so others in the same situation I was in can view it http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N7M2S1JR (a .pdf)

They do need to change the way the site redirects, I get the same screen you're talking about every time I log in initially after timing out. On that page, you should have a link in the same place I circled in the below picture. That will take you to the top page and you'll be able to see the list that also is in my pic.

That is not true. I've only been in the Open Beta, and I've been able to access the forums.

Well that's odd. When I try to access anything under "Discussion" I get a page saying "This cannot be accessed with the current Square Enix account."

Perhaps your account some how sneaked through? SE did announce what I said, I'll have to try and find the announcement.
