Transferring PatchFollow

Sorry if this has been covered already -

I have two computers and two accounts, one of my computers finished the patch and is ready to go. What files can I pull off of the finished one to just put in the other computer so it is good to go? I can't find a patch folder.

Does anyone know?

Thanks :)

they are under documents and mygames and then FFXIV youll find 2 different patch folders. Just copy the contents you need from them they'll be prefaced by some string of numbers in the top folders for them then youll have a patch and a meta file.. you want the stuff in the patch folders

C:\Users\Owner\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\ 2d2a390f\ is the location Ignore the beta I don't have a retail installed to show you. It will be the same tho. both the 2d2a390f folder and a 48eca647 folders have a patch folder to copy from.

all that shows is the torrent files. I mean what literal data do I transfer over so I don't have to patch at all on the other computer. Do I have to transfer the entire game?

the stuff in the "Patch" folders the meta folder is just torrent data and the patch folder is the data you wanna move

Hmm... if the game is patched then you should have something in the patch folders under 2d2a390f folder and a 48eca647 folder. Maybe not both at this point... I don't have retail so I'm not sure which of the 2 the patches went into. the patches will look like D2010.09.01.2000.patch and the file type will be patch file tho.

It deletes the patch files once it installs it. If you want to save it you have to grab it before the game updates and deletes it. You'll have to download it again.
