Is this a private server or not?Follow

Okay, so I just downloaded Final Fantasy XIV on my pc, but discovered too late that I needed some sort of serial code to give my Square Enix account acces to Final Fantasy XIV servers. I tried finding a keygen, but the survey thing was all very weird- enfin, i just needed a Final Fantasy Private Server. And I happened to read a thread (can;t find it back, sorry for that) that ZAM actually has one. I just wanted to know if this is real, and if so, how i can make my game contact with it. Maybe it's just me, but i'm finding it very hard to make out of the ZAMsite itself that it indeed has a FFXIV private server.
Please respond quickly as possible, I won't survive to wait any longer =)

So what you're saying is, you pirated the game, and wonder why you can't subscribe and play for free without buying it..


Heres how you join the private server - Run to walmart, buy FFXIV, and then play for free. Since the population is low it feels just like a private server.


Zam does not have a private FFXIV server. Nobody does.

No, there are no private servers. I'm pretty sure that SE would shut them down, like they did with the Windower, if they knew of them. I'm also 100% positive that if anyone actually posted any private server information on this site, the admins would nuke it from orbit.

Go buy the actual game and play on an actual server.

Yeah you really can't use a keygen on MMOs but why are you pirating games anyways? It's not like Square is EA or Activision, they have a lot of money but taking away the limited revenue this game has doesn't help it out.

Look how many companies have gone under because of piracy, or got out of the PC game business (For example, no Gears of War 2 on PC specifically because of piracy or Fable II). Or, when a PC game is released, its a port of ... a 360 game using console controls. Like Darksiders or Devil may Cry or Prince of Persia.

The PC game market is dying and companies are very quick to point out when their products sell 400,000 copies but are pirated 800,000 times.

Just don't pirate Valve games, they're one of the last companies still making PC games for PC gamers first and consoles second.

When your 15 piracy seems fun, until you realize the PSP has no good games coming out because companies say people will just pirate it anyways. Sure making $10m on a video game sounds good except when you realize gamestop probably took 6m of it, and marketing, and game companies can have in excess of $100,000 a month overhead during development that needs to be paid off.

Either earn the money to buy it yourself or don't play then, it's as simple as that.

Yeah but if you got a part time job you could earn the money to buy the game one time, and then you never have to pay for it again, for at least like, until your 18 when the game gets a monthly fee and leaves beta :D


Go sell lemonade or mow lawns for a week or two. I'm not sure how it is in Netherlands exactly but I know when I was 14 I was mowing yards for $25 a yard.

Legally speaking, your parents have control over you even if they don't want it.
They are liable for your actions, and pirating the game in such a manner, if such a server existed (which it does not...yet) could land them a prison sentence if your country has laws against the pirating of software,

In short, earn some money, buy the game, everyone wins. Or, of course, you could ask a friend who bought the CE for their buddy pass. Keep in mind you need a very good PC for this game. If they aren't willing to buy you video games, I am kind of suspecting your parents won't get you a decent gaming PC.

I hadn't even considered this. If you can't afford $30 for the game, I find it extremely unlikely that you could afford a system that could run it. It's almost like saying you are trying to pirate DVDs because you can't afford them when you don't even have a TV to watch them on.

I recommend you follow threads here and at ffxiv core for a Buddy Pass. Anyone who buys a Collectors Edition of the game also receives a Buddy Pass which allows you to activate an extra account. This would solve your problems. And you'll be able to play for free until the monthly subscription kicks in.

Side Note:
Not being able to buy the game and not having a PC that can play this are two very different issues. He probably can not legally work in the Netherlands (being 14 and all). That doesn't mean that his parents don't own a nice PC. Also I got FFXIV to run (it looked like an 8-bit NES game, but it was running) on a fairly ghetto graphics card. Changes made in one of the patches really let you turn down the settings. Try running the game with all the settings on low :)

I DO have a pc for minimum system req. (not recommended, but good enough
my parents dont know i have earned it myself with a parttime job, they think i still have the old system i got from my grandma.

The buddy pass should help you out at least but if you mow yards you get cash which doesn't go into your bank account immediately.

Also if they control your account its not really your account is it, it's their account which you get to look at and beg for use of.

By controlling my account i meant that they check the monthly letter with the changes on my bank account.

Also, this game probably will not remain free-to-play forever, meaning at some point you're going to have to start paying a monthly subscription with a credit card.

Really though, sneaking behind your parents' backs is not the solution. Work out a deal with them: household chores for game time. Explain to them that playing a video game is no different than watching TV, reading a book, or any other couch/chair-centric activity.

Well, I rspect my mum and dad. In fact, compared to parents from my friends, i couldnt have wished me any better parents. But why would i be the only one from me and my older brother who isn't allowed to do what we like, while I don;t f*ck up my middle school (or high school, dont know whats it called in english. The school after the primary school at least) and he does. Anyway, enough talk bout my life, lets play :)

Eeh pretty sure that won't happen xD Avast 5 is pretty good, plus I (mostly) only download things that a friend of my also tried without problems.

I honestly do not get why parents do not understand this concept.

Actually, I don't get why people in general don't understand this concept; that watching five hours of TV is perfectly acceptable, but playing five hours of video games is not.

If there are two things I'm grateful for, it's that I had parents who allowed me to use computers and video games liberally (and this was hte 80s, when such things were new) and that my kids will have parents that allow the same thing.

More importantly though, I'm grateful that my parents always took an interest in what games I was playing; even if they didn't really play games themselves, they wanted to know what I was doing and what I was learning, rather than letting the game raise me and blaming video games when I inevitably turned out wrong due to lack of parenting.

Just because you can't see them, doesn't mean they aren't there. Avast is a good AV program, but there's lots of stuff that gets past it such as Vundo variants - I see it every single day. Just this morning I cleaned up a computer that was massively infected with viruses despite the user having up to date antivirus and patches - no computer is immune, and Avast's heuristics isn't yet advanced enough for me to agree that you are completely protected against new threats.

It's your computer - I'm just making a suggestion as keygens are known for being trojans.

Well i dont use much keygens.Tried it once and it indeed was a Trojan. I am also agreeing with you that the fact i dont see em doesnt mean i dont have em. But as long as I don't have trouble with it, i dont really care having a virus or not. I remember having one when my Eset scanner was down and i didnt manage to fix that, that one indeed messed up my PC pretty good. Still i am trying to be as much aware as possible not downloading any virusses, such as reading comments at the downloads and cleaning my harddisks once every while.

SE doesn't use keygens, they use serial keys. And if you think that knowledge of the existence of serial keys qualifies as "every little bits 'n bytes that are getting into my PC," you don't even deserve to access these fine interweb-tubes.

SE doesn't use keygens, they use serial keys. And if you think that knowledge of the existence of serial keys qualifies as "every little bits 'n bytes that are getting into my PC," you don't even deserve to access these fine interweb-tubes.

Wups, keygens-serial keys was my fault. But anyway, how else did i need to find out i needed to link my account to the game, except for experiencing it myself? is there anything wrong about that?
"Yeah, it's wrong you download games instead of spending 20-30 bucks to buy them"
If your answer would be anything like that, read the rest of the thread completely, if you'd please.

Really though, sneaking behind your parents' backs is not the solution. Work out a deal with them: household chores for game time. Explain to them that playing a video game is no different than watching TV, reading a book, or any other couch/chair-centric activity.


I honestly do not get why parents do not understand this concept.

Actually, I don't get why people in general don't understand this concept; that watching five hours of TV is perfectly acceptable, but playing five hours of video games is not.

If there are two things I'm grateful for, it's that I had parents who allowed me to use computers and video games liberally (and this was hte 80s, when such things were new) and that my kids will have parents that allow the same thing.

More importantly though, I'm grateful that my parents always took an interest in what games I was playing; even if they didn't really play games themselves, they wanted to know what I was doing and what I was learning, rather than letting the game raise me and blaming video games when I inevitably turned out wrong due to lack of parenting.


Gosh, I know. When I was a child, my mother would actually make me stop playing my PlayStation after 1-2 hours, suggesting that I watch TV instead!


What the ****? Whats the difference, exept you control yourslef what happens on the screen?


Video Games make you violent. Now turn off Super Mario and watch Friday the 13th.

lol. sounds about right. (Although you have no idea how I've been violently conditioned by video games; if I ever encounter a Goomba IRL, we're gonna have a bloody mess... and I'm going to need new shoes.)
