@ sefailsatlife: Please take a screenshot of your Updater and let me see what its trying to download.

As you have all those patch files in your folder then it should be installing them unless the files you have arent completed.

Make sure those patch files are the correct size.

H2010.08.20.2000.patch = 4.932.542 KB or 4.9gb in total, if its not then it needs to be downloaded again.

@ Coddy i suggest you go to the ffxiv-config file in your c:\program files\square enix etc folder and run it then click general and reset your settings to default.

Or search online to see if there is a command ingame you can press which disables the interface, because most games ive played have a shortcut keybind to disable UI.

Aion has one and its F12, this will only show your character and the terrain + mobs, no NPC Names, Interface or Players.

Thanks for the suggestions, neither one seem to be doing the trick. (Couldn't find a default settings option. D:...)

I posted this a few times, but here you go.

As long as you're comfortable installing a torrent program (If you don't have one already), and do some dragging/dropping of files into other folders, do this. It's worked wonders for our LS:

1. Open the FFXIV open Beta client, allow it to get to the step where it begins downloading files. This will ensure you have the torrents downloaded on your computer.

2. Open whatever application you use for downloading torrents. If you do not use one already, I would suggest uTorrent ( ). In Utorrent, File > add torrent. Point Utorrent to the following:
Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\metainfo

In the metainfo folder you will find files that have the same name as the patch your FFXIV was trying to download. Select these files, and hit open.

3. Utorrent will now begin downloading these files to your computer. Based on your internet connection and security settings this should take less than 5 minutes. By default Utorrent downloads to the "downloads" folder in your documents folder. After it is complete there will be a folder called D96437e6, inside of this folder there will be a folder called patch, and inside the patch folder, there will be the actual patches

4.Copy these files to Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\patch

5. Open FFXIV, it will try to patch again, realize it already has the information, and prompt you to log in.

6. Win.

This worked for me, thanks!

However, I notice that I now seem to be locked into a 30FPS cap? Has anyone else had this problem?

This is a serious question thats been bugging me for awhile now. Arent p2p downloads inherently dangerous considering you have god-knows-who practically altering your game files? I am very new to torrents. More specifically, I dont trust p2p d/ls for anything let alone my XI or now XIV program files. Are there built in safeguards? Wouldnt it be pretty easy for someone to completely wreck your game under the guise of being an update?

Im not trying to cause alarm. Just very very hesitant...

I suppose there is always a possibly however the safeguards would be in place server side, when it checks the files to make sure you have the updated versions, any alteration in a game file would be picked up then and the server would force you to re-download the effected file.

Hence why most updaters have a [check] or [repair] option available.


Torrents arent 100% safe, but then again nothing on the internet is ever 100% safe. Its the world we live in, however touch wood in the last 10 years i've been using torrents and such ive not once encountered anything thats threatened my game client or my PC.

Then again im not a fool, i know what to click and what could potentially be harmful. where i get most my torrents from is pretty trusted and has a review option for each torrent so if it was a bad one someone would tell you.

Besides, the games offical client is the one giving you these torrent links, they are coming from SE just not directly, their updater is just a torrent downloader only its crap. Which is why people are taking matters into their own hands to try and fix their own issues.

Your taking the torrents from the FFXIV Updater Directory so imo there is nothing to fear, its all these people telling you to download this from here and such that are not to be trusted. Files hosted on Megaupload and such are far more un-trustworthy than a torrent.

@ fetter: I've not even noticed a FPS display ingame, however this game isnt a run of the mill game graphically, you wont be getting mega high fps anytime soon, plus the game is in beta stage still there may be alot of things SE havent even added that may improve alot of game features.

Until release no one has any right to complain about things, because this is purely for testing purposes not just for people to play the game. Alot of people dont seem to realize this.

Beta's are always a good option imo because it gives them like 2-3 weeks or a month to find problems they wouldnt normally find during restricted testing be it in-house testing or selective testing with just a handful of the public given access.

They've allowed anyone to test, which means they get alot more information flowing into their hands, server specs and stats are one, they will know have a good idea on how their servers will cope with the release of the game.

PS: Anything over 60FPS cannot be detected by the human eye, we can only process 60FPS so if your getting something close to 60 then you should be happy. People always think higher FPS the better but anything over 60 and you dont even notice it.

You could try disabling some of the graphic options from the ffxiv-config.exe inside the updater folder. Its under General Section.
