Changed startup screen?Follow

#1 Jan 24 2011 at 12:53 PM Rating: Good
I'm not sure what's going on here, but it's the first time I've seen it:

Screenshot

Anyone else reckons this screen looks better than the standard white we're used to?

Another note about graphics...has anyone got a screenshot of the newer earrings bearing worn on a character (e.g Pearl, Danburite)? You do 'blink' when you equip them, but I can't see them...

Mine is still white. I'm digging the black though!

I haven't logged in today. Looks groovy, however.

The cloud/smoke at the bottom has always been there, you just couldn't see it very well on a pure white background.

My background changed from white to black after I bumped up the graphics some time ago.

I think your GFX are probably screwed up... did you tweak something?

I had that screen come up once a few weeks ago.Not sure whats up with that. Could be certain graphic settings, but I do like it better than the white screen that usually is there.

I noticed this a month or two ago. It happened when I upgraded to my 5770 and turned on AA to x2 or x4.. I can't recall which.

Not sure if it's an Easter egg or what, but it's definitely more pretties though ^^

If you turn off AA it should revert back to the standard white screen. If I remember correctly, it only comes on when AA is set to a certain multiplier and does not appear with any other settings. This may have changed since the time I was last playing with it. In any case there's nothing wrong with your graphics card or anything of the sort.

Just tested it, it seems to appear if you have any form of AA on. I installed the new ATI 11.1a drivers earlier, so maybe that's why it's appeared, since I've been using 2xAA for a while and never noticed on older drivers.

It's a graphical glitch. I encountered it on my old setup when bumping up my quality from Standard to High/Very High. Logged into the game and all the characters on my screen were black or transparent, and the map was upside down.

EDIT: It's not limited to AA settings.

I wouldn't say it's a glitch as I have the black screen but characters/map look fine in game. I have most setting at max; using an Alienware rig w/ an ATI 5970

Well, the black screen itself is a glitch, because the normal screen is white as it should be. Doesn't necessarily mean it's a destructive glitch, but a glitch nonetheless.

That poem obviously predicted the end of FFXIV. What you're seeing is the charred remains of Eorzea. (Is that...smoke I see?)
