I have some questions, I tried researching so please excuse me if there are posts about this because I could not find any.
Basically, I just started the game. I was unable to play due to an abomination of a GPU. Although my CPU bottlnecks it a bit, I bought a geforce 460 GTX SE card and was able to get ~3,000 on the benchmark on low setting and ~2200 on high. When I go to open the ffxiv icon for some reason, the update downloader appears, and it prepares to download the patches, but has 0 bytes/sec occasionally going up but then back to 0. It is real laggy and stays at 0% completed. The screen updater also turns red once it opens (I think it should be blue? could be wrong). Any advice or help would be appreciated. Im craviiiing to play this game, spent forever waiting for it, then found out I had to save for a GPU, then I had to learn how to install it, and now this.
