This is the new home for all the computers and video cards that this game has killed. I'll start first.

Destroyed for the good cause of buying another "ZAM made".

He still did 25-man ICC on WoW with 5 FPS....Not bad for a dying dinosaur.

I replaced mine with at radeon 5770 hd 1gb and my framerate only huts 60 when I'm running outside with no one around. Fps still sucks in cities or aetherites. Something else on my computer is probably holding it back.

I think the game is capped to 60 FPS, so it should never go above that.

Psh I have a i7 920 and a gtx 470 and I get 18-20 fps around the stones and 20-25 in town. I do however run at 60fps everywhere else. So its not just your 5770.

I got an i7 860 with a 470 gtx, what are your settings like? I run at a constant 40 fps in battles and towns and such and 60 fps obviously when nothing is going on.

2.8ghz. Did you enable the ambient occlusion and depth of field? What's your buffer set to?

My 4870 only hates this game because it overheats a bit. A problem which I will be fixing here in the next couple days. I plan on strapping a VF3000A to it, hopefully that will help a tad. I got the H.I.S. POS version of the card when it was first released and have regretted the mistake ever since. Thing has a flimsy aluminum fan that's tiny, the card also doesnt have a second slot vent so it just blows hot air around in my case. I'm pretty sure if left as is the card will die very soon.

Ambient occlusion is pretty much not usable on existing computers.

Depth of field isn't too much of a performance hit but I think it looks like crap having everything in the distanced blurred out.

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:

It's a shame, in the right hands DoF effects can really look good. This game just seems to add a non descript blur across everything T_T It will be a while until we see the best out of this game, visually and mechanically.

I kind of like the DoF, makes everything look 2 dimensional at a distance.

I have the same card and noticed a HUGE difference in crowded areas when overclocking my CPU (will 5+ fps or so)... CPU clock speed seems to make a big difference in this. So that's probly your issue depending on your CPU clock speed. with my AMD phenon x6 1090t @ 4ghz I don't notice much CPU lag.

For some reason the game only seems to use Core #2 ... the third core. So You can use the AOD turbo to clock the 1090T up to 4.4ghz on a 1090T, and set it to only use turbo on that core. Works with mine.

I won't say R.I.P. to this PC, because I am actually just moving it to another room after I build the new rig. It plays the game "ok", but it could be so much better... I scored about 2700 on the low benchmark test.

This PC:
Intel Core 2 @2.4GHz 6600 (dual core)
3GB RAM
nVidia 8800GT
20" Dell monitor

New PC (not built yet, but on its way):
Intel Core i7 950 Bloomfield 3.06 (stock/not OCed) (quad core)
ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard
Antec 1000w PSU
12GB RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 480
WD Velociraptor 10,000RPM 3GB/sec 150GB HDD (mainly just for OS)
Seagate 1TB 7200RM HDDs (will have two of these)
27" Samsung monitor 2ms
...and the Beast that will contain it all...
Cooler Master HAF X Case (with enough cooling fans to even bring the temperature in **** down to 78 degrees.)

My wife has already started calling the new PC "The Beast".

I just hope FFXIV runs better on the new rig. =P

Where do you guys set your video settings?

I have 2 GTS250s SLI'ed and I get around 15-19 fps :(

These same cards ran APB (extreme in graphics dept) maxed out without a sweat always at 60 fps. I did have to force SLI through Nvidia control panel as FF wasn't doing it. Before I did that one card was about to melt and blow up while the other sat idle. Once SLI was working I got maybe 3-4 more fps (was 9-15 fps beforehand).

You guys running AA at all and buffer should be where? I have depth of field and occlusion off.

We have 2 computers running this game

First:
i5-760 @ 2.8 ghz stock clocks
4gigs @1600mhz
2x GTX 275 SC in SLI

Runs the game @ 1680x1050, highest settings, 16xAA, depth of field and AO off.

Second:
c2q q9450 OC @ 3.2ghz
8 gigs @ 800mhz
HD 5770
(This is our htpc)

Runs the game at 1280x720, highest detail, high texture, 2xAA, depth of field and AO off.

Both of these machines have no issues with chopping other than server studder. Both are above 30 fps around crystals/camp. I will be buying a second 5770 for the htpc for crossfire, and run the game at 1920x1080.

People with a GTX 470 and a decent i7 should not be having 15-20 fps in camp. Something else must be wrong.

I think my fps would jump up if I played full screen but then I can't friggen alt tab to look something up that I have to do every 5 minutes in this game, answer a IM, change channels in vent, etc.

My pc has never liked running games in windows but then again I've never liked it either.
