I'm sure you all get this a lot, but I'm having concerns about the download rate of the files for FF14 and also in my computers hardware (which should be ok, but you never know...)
As for my download, which is the predominant issue, it keeps going in and out between around 130 kb/sec (sometimes much higher, around 900 or so) and 0. I know my connection is ok, so is there just a lot of server lag? Should I try again in a couple of days?
On my comp itself, I'm going to try to run it on a laptop (at least until PS3 release). It's an HP Pavillion with...
4 GB RAM
AMD Turion II Ultra Duel Core Processor 2.50 GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Graphics Card
Im not really sure what all other stats I should post about it. I bought it off my friend who just got back from Iraq who sold it to me for 300 dollars (he said it was worth much more, but as he needed the money I didn't really care, just wanted to help him out).
I also have my old laptop, an ASUS. If all goes wrong on here I can always install it on the ASUS but the benchmark only ran around 400 on it, but I've heard of people getting craptastic benchmark scores and still being able to run the game well.
Its stats are...
Genuine Intell CPU U7300 @ 1.30 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce G210M
I sincerely feel that my buddies laptop will play the game much better, but it never hurts to try I suppose. I got the collector's edition so if nothing else I got some cool swag for PS3 launch (failed attempt at being an optimist).
Any input other than PS3/PC rawrz and just outright bashing of my computers would be very appreciated :) Im hoping this works. I really liked what SE did with 11, and I'm hoping to play another beautiful game with great people.
