here are some little things (probably brought up before) that are so annoying and make the game really very clumsy and user unfriendly.

The text limit in chat - what is with the amount you can type??

The cancelling of local levequests - you cant access your journal and cancel them?? I took a gold smith one when i thought thats what i wanted to be then decided against it. To get the leve out of my journal and stop it from being reissued every reset i had to buy a gold smith hammer and fail the leve to get rid of it?? Cmon seriously!?

The targeting thing - oh my god this is bad and i dont even play a healer! They need to put in a button u can cyle through close allies in your party aswell as nearest enemies. You should also be able to target someone by clicking theyre name at the bottom right if they are in your party.

MINIMIZING THE GAME - at first I thought this was computer/software related but after asking around ive found out its the same for all. It is a joke that in this day and age I have to write down recipes with a pen when im sitting infront of my 2k pc.

Im not ******** about the game cos im being optimistic about stuff but this is all little things that are so easily sorted and make the game so much more playable.

The idea of this thread isnt to start a flaming session, if you guys know anymore little annoying things to post them here so theyre all in on place (probably done before but needs done till they are sorted)

#3MangoWango, Posted: Oct 15 2010 at 8:33 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I agree with all of these, targeting is a nightmere.. ..camp was awhile away from me but I still managed to target people from camp before I targeted a mob right in front of me, annoys me too when I get an unfinished tell and the person doesn't realise... Also I've often wanted to cancel a local leve I cant be bothered to finish for whatever reason.. Its annoying having to use up all the synths to get rid of it. I'm not too fussed about the minimize thing since I run in windowed mode but I see it being a pain for you.

They've addressed these issues in the update on the lodestone today. They will be fixed by the december update. As for minimizing the window, yeah, that won't happen, but you can play in windowed mode and keep a browser, voice chat server, or anything else up and go back and forth between them.

Yeah I thought it would be but it needs to be done until they sort this simple stuff out.

This will be rectified in the coming update:

In the late-November update, we will be adding a new feature that allows players to adjust levequest difficulty after activating the guildleve. Furthermore, we will also be adding a feature that will allow players to abandon local levequests after accepting them.

Also will be fixed.

Targeting
Adjustments will be made to target priority when using the Tab key to cycle through nearby targets
When targeting a party member, a target mark will now appear next to the target's name in the party member list
Players will be able to target party members via the party member list

SE doesn't like adding ALT Tab support, they may eventually. A work-around however is to download the steam client.

http://store.steampowered.com/about/

From there add "non-steam" game and add FFXIV. Now you will be able to use the steam powered browser by hitting SHIFT-TAB to access the steam web browser. Not an actual fix but still effective.

Also as far as the recipes, a fix for that as well

The late-November patch will see adjustments to the required ranks and difficulty levels of various existing recipes, ensuring that players will have a better chance to successfully create items when reaching the optimal skill level.

For the mid-December update, we will be adding several new recipes, including ones for crafting new gear. In addition, we will be introducing a new feature that will allow players to select recipes from a list of recently crafted items and recipes learned through levequests, and set all of the appropriate ingredients with the touch of a single button, thus making repeated synthesis of a single item a snap!

Also - if you want to talk to the developers I suggest you post in the feedback forum:

LMAO. I don't know why someone bumping their own pointless thread that really didn't need a response was so funny to me.

SleeplessMickey's answer completely justifies that bump and to get an answer like that was the reason I did it. STFU, i hate people that go on forums to inject their negativity where ever they can
