Logged in tonight, first thing I notice - I cannot find any of my macros.

Has this happened to anybody else? I have relogged, still no macros.

uh, no. that sucks. dont know what i can tell you. if relogging doesnt work then i guess you just have to re-write the macros.

Hasn't happened to me yet. Make sure you log out correctly. God forbid you alt tab and your comp not be able to find directX because of a mistake on Squares part. Windowed mode FTW.

I still kept the last working version of windower from the day it got axed. Still works great, lets you alt-tab from fullscreen without the performance drop of swapping out of fullscreen. Can always rely on other people to do SE's job for them.

Yeah.. I have been using windowed mode this entire time. The game crashes on me at least 3 times a night, and I get frequent BSOD's from it too. This may explain why it didn't do a proper logout. With how many problem's everybody has had with crashing, I am surprised that I am the only one with missing macros. :)

Was I the only one disappointed with the lack of ninjas in this thread? =/

But yeah, there have been a lot of issues due to server crashes affecting things like retainers, bazaars and now macros apparently.

What about the bazaar's? I have noticed that while I have been in a different city than my home this entire week, I have been unable to summon my retainer even once. It just says .. unable to summon retainer. Even at a bell.

Is this the kind of thing? Sounds like the retainer is stuck in Limbo.

There was another thread about it. A player who was logged in when their server crashed had items in their bazaar at the time. When they logged back in the icon was still there but nothing was in the bazaar and they could no longer add anything to it either.

man, i guess i have the one copy of FF14 that was blessed with tanaka's holy urine or something, because ive crashed maybe twice since installing the retail game. every other problem ive had has been server-side or ISP related; i.e. latency issues.

course, i play in windowed mode, not full screen, so im not sure what effect that has on it. i just know i spend too much time looking up ancillary info on various sites to want to worry about going full screen.

Is your retainer still out in your home city? I have been unable to summon my retainer on different market levels(or other cities) when she is already out. Have to go in person and dismiss then I can summon in another location. Just a thought.

As for crashing, I am running full screen. Have only crashed 2 times since I started playing on release day. Once was when I tried to alt tab. The second was when I tried to alt tab again out of pure curiosity :p

Yeah its too bad but I cannot run the game in full screen, I need to alt-tab to update my linkshell forum and check databases. :)

Oh well. Hopefully they fix everything. heh.
