I'm on windows 7.

Since I have updated with the patch, I have been unable to log onto wutai. At first i thought it may be a server problem but it doesn't seem like anyone else can't get on. So I made a new char on wutai to see if my char had just glitched and that wont load either.

Basically I can get to the "now loading" screen, and then it just stays there all black and loading with the music. So I'm guessing the patch installation messed up some files or something, because this has never happened before.

Any tips on what to do? I tried downloading the patch via torrent and putting it in the proper folder but that doesn't cause the updater to reinstall or recheck. I've tried switching the "display" it runs on under devices in config(I use 4 monitors so i have 4 graphics cards, 2 are ATI Radeon HD 4800 and 2 are NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT) but that didn't get it to work either.

I then ran check-drive on my main drive (which the game is on) and had it correct for errors, but that didn't do anything either.

I'm certain I don't have a virus or spyware as I have just recently checked for it all and not visited any sites other than facebook, this, xivcore, and gamefaqs.

The only thing i can think of doing is reinstalling the game, but i've read in other threads that reinstalling causes ffxiv to break hardcore, and I can't reformat my computer so that would force me to quit the game.

Please give me some suggestions.
Thank you.

The update also added options to the FFXIV Config settings. Check those against your comps video settings and make sure the update didn't reset any of your custom settings in the FFXIV Config options.

Reinstalling is what I'd suggest. Sucks, but usually fixes problems like that.
