Getting Japanese message box on game startFollow

About 1/4 times that I try to connect to FF the game crashes before even getting to the logging screen. I get a japanese message box and then FF is completly frozen. Only killing the process in Windows Task Manager can get rid of the crashed window.

Today I couldn't log in the game all day because of this error.

I have included a screen shot of the message box in case someone here reads Japanese and can tell me what it is saying.

I got that same error message when I either tried to open FFXIV again after it's already been running, OR trying to run the FFXIV config with the game open. Have you ran the config yet to change like your full screen options or say installing a gamepad? I had to completely restart my computer when I got this. Not sure if this was any help but I've gotten the same error.

this only happens when you have one instance of final fantasy alrdy running

Do an ALT+TAB but hold down the ALT and cycle through your active applications by hitting Tab

if you STILL cant get it to work, then try this

find the ffxivboot.exe ( aka the game launcher)

right click open properties and where it says Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XIV\ffxivboot.exe"

At the end of the .exe" hit spacebar once and type -N

so should look like this in Target field "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XIV\ffxivboot.exe" -N

this will allow you to run more than one instance of the game and should let us know 100% what your problem is should it persist

That happens whenever I minimize the game and it basically dissapears.. I just restart my computer to fix it.

"Final Fantasy XIV timed out while waiting to close."
