Beta Drivers, little performance boostFollow

This is very odd.

FPS on this game is somehow crazy, I've seen people with good rigs and they can run anything on it, but still this game crawls. I decided to go to NVIDIA and get the new Beta drivers http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us 260.63 from Sept 14, after installing I can say i got at least 5 to 7 more frames on this FFxiv. Still it really bothers me I can run Starcraft2 on max at more than 60 FPS, Bioshock 1 and 2 Full 60 FPS,Dragon Age at top settings again with more 60 FPS,and unreal tournament III with all including Physx Engine on and I get more than 60 FPS, all of this with a GTX 460 1 gig. Still is mind bending. I really hope SE is doing something.

MMO games tend to eat more resources. Comparing multiplayer and singleplayer game performance to a MMO is not going to give accurate results.

Someone here posted an excerpt earlier from an interview with one of the lead designers of the game. He basically said that they are very aware of the crazy requirements for the game. His reasoning being that they want this game to still look good in 3 years when mid-range PC's can run it at full specs.

My only recommendation is for people to stop trying to run this game in full HD. I have an i7-950 and Nvidia GTX 460 and I am running the game at 1280x960 windowed. I have all settings at highest and 8xCSAA (no silly ambient occlusion or depth of field though... don't like them). The game looks spectacular and runs amazingly smooth for me.

Forcing FSAA and Anisotropic Filtering settings through the drivers can really slow the game down. Apparently the game's graphics engine wants things set a certain way so it's best to just set those to application controlled and set them though FFXIV's config menu.

And I'm going to say once again that this game should have used DirectX 10. This would not be a problem then because application settings take priority in DirectX 10.

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.


I thought of it first:

What do you mean full HD? And why would you run it in windowed mode?
