I have never played FF XI or any of the XIV beta. I have always played the FF RPG series so I thought I might give FF XIV a try. I have played all of the MMOs out there (WoW, Aion, Conan, LoTR, EQ II, etc...)
With the above being said, I cannot for the life of me figure out the basics for FF XIV. I'm thinking that I am just missing something because I do not hear any other complaints/frustrations such as mine....
My play screen is an inch too short on the top and bottom (showing my desktop) and an inch too long on the left and right sides causing me to constantly grab the window and move it back and forth to see the edge of the playing screen. I have looked under the options window and cannot see any way to adjust the play window size. Help?
In every other MMO that I have played if you turn your character to the left or the right or all the way around, the camera follows you. It was taking me forever to get the hang of the controls for this game because it seemed that every time that I turned my character I would have to right click my mouse and manually turn my mouse with my character. Again, is there a setting that I'm missing? Help?
Also, I never really made it "out into the world" yet. I played the opening sequence for Lisa Lominsa (sp?) and made it to town where the boat drops you off at but I seemed to be stuck. None of the three NPCs standing there would talk to me, I was stuck on the dock and could not go left, right or straight ahead without getting blocked by a gate. After a few frustrating minutes I found the "teleport" option but no matter which I chose, I didn't go anywhere. Once again, am I missing something? Help?
I'm sorry to be asking such minor and newb questions but I really want to give this game a chance and grow with the community from the launch but right now, I'm really frustrated. I thank everyone in advance for and and all help/suggestions you might be able to give me.
