This seems quite odd and was wondering if anyone else has experienced it? I am able to run my client in fullscreen without a problem, yet my girlfriend is forced to play in a window or it just hangs at startup. Anyone else experience this?

You can't unless you were in Closed Beta and invited by SE. BTW if you ever need the beta site just google "ffxiv beta site".

I know I have had issues with fullscreen if I was running dual monitors. I have to keep one off to play.

Fullscreen is horrendous for me, which is weird because it worked perfectly in B3. Now, though, in fullscreen I lag like crazy and every cutscene is blacked out. So I have no choice but to play windowed.

If I turn the settings down it works well, but my computer is above average. Also in windowed I run it with all settings highest, AO off, DoF on, and 2xMSAA with no issues. So I'd say me having to run it at lowest in fullscreen is an issue.

I agree. Full screen should make the game run smoother as it is designed to 'seize' the hardware and not have to share with other processes. I think the problem is due to bad DirectX programming, if it even, in fact, uses DirectX. Seems to me, it is simply switching to full screen, but not going Exclusive, which is a bad idea and defeats one of the true powers and purposes of going full screen in the first place.
