So I installed XIV, get to the patch and it stays at 0 kbps and 0% and after so many minutes gives me a 11030 error and tells me to restart. I've restarted 10-15 times. Anyone have any tips? Btw, does it matter that I'm in a dorm?

I've tried updating my laptop while I was at school today and couldn't get it to update but at home it updates fine.. The problem is the updater. Since it uses P2P the dorm internet may not let you use it. Best bet is to look for a download for the update off megaupload or something.

I was part of the alpha test group and I emailed SE a letter every Monday before work stating how the torrent method for patch distribution is a terrible idea. blah blah etc etc.

They did not listen.

Your best bet is to find someone kind enough to host a direct download of the file on a file hosting site.

I'm quite disgusted about the whole matter. There will of course be people chiming in here how their download works just fine and it's all your fault that it doesn't work. hurray!

Since it's a dorm, you may be able to go to the Network Admins and ask for an exception, explaining what it is and why. Also this isn't the only game to use torrents for patches, there's a rather big and popular one that does.

My download worked fine and downloaded it 30mins noob.


Seriously though, just torrent it if it doesn't work, I torrented the whole of the beta because I had the same problem,

Oh try this aswell, open your ports to the correct places, can't remember the numbers and stuff now but it should be around here somewhere if you use the search function!

Wish you the best of luck.
