Tried the "forum search" but really had no idea how to word what I was looking for lol

Here's my issue... I walk into a room where there are SUPPOSED to be NPCs and such... and it takes at least 45 seconds before everyone shows up ... Overall, this doesn't bother me, but I think that the same is happening with the leve targets ... been trying to find the stupid Plague Rats for the very first quest for like 20 minutes and by the time I see them, someone has already engaged and killed them.

Is there a particular video setting that affects how quickly things are rendered?

Also, does FFXIV not like alt+tab? Everytime I try to switch to look something up, or just check email, the game crashes ....

Thanks in advance!
(hopefully this all makes sense!)

That's lag, we're all experiencing it to varying degrees, some worse, some not.

I'll try to explain leve quests since you seem to have the wrong idea. When you start a leve quest, you will be given targets to hunt down. SPECIFIC targets that are meant for you alone, noone else can engage or even see these targets. They're meant for just you. You'll know which targets are yours because they'll blink red on your mini map in the top right, and they'll have a little scroll thing to the left of their names, just like the one that appears to the left of your name over your head. If you're hunting other mobs I don't believe you'll get the crfedit for your quest, although I can't be sure cause I haven't tried hunting the wrong target yet lol.

Yes FFXIV does not like alt-tab just like baby brother XI didn't like it. Also, a little tip that I learned. Best to turn off things that give regular pop ups on your desktop like MSN messenger when you get emails, or Steam when a friend plays a game. They cause me to crash as well, so best to shut em off.

If you use Windower you can get a pseudo-fullscreen effect (borderless window at the desktop resolution) that allows for easy tabbing in and out.
