Hey, Ive had FFXIV Beta since its became open and I have yet to really play. I see other people gaining levels, and Ive barely laid a foot into the world.
For starters I get logged in, then after selecting "Start" about 50% of the time I can get to the character selection screen, otherwise it will just error out (timeout) and I try again.
After that I select the character, most of the time I get to the Loading screen and I can hear background noise but it just stays on the Loading screen.
Once I was able to load the world, I was able to run around (very smoothly), but interacting with anything was out of the question. I was sending approx 30 data and receiving usually 0 (occasionally it would pop up a few hundred but drop back down)
Win 7 64Bit
Processor: Intel Core2 Quad Q600 @2.40GHz (4CPUs)
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4600
I have a wireless adapter off of a cable modem on my PC and maxing out speed of approx 7mb/s.
Ive even tried lowering all graphic settings.
If you have any questions or suggestions I'd love to hear them. Id like to get this take care of before the game comes out
