Hey there!

I just purchased FF14 Online last night at GameStop. I wanted to try something new (I've been a long time Everquest player). I installed the game overnight and updated the files with the patcher this morning. The only problem is that whenever I try to load the game, the crashes. It says that the game has stopped working properly. Any idea's?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I would love to try FF14 and stuff. ^_^

Hm. What are you computer's specs?
Specifically, processor and graphics card?

Always good to see some new blood.. :p

You should post up your computer specs..
Also, have you already tried updating your drivers..?

Might be a good idea to see if the application has dumped any more info in your event log too. You can see your logs by right clicking (My)Computer and Manage.

I had this issue when I started up and I had to roll back drivers to get it to work. If you could post specs and the event log it may help.

I played EQ2 awhile and I have noticed FFXIV is seemingly getting more and more similar to that game, but maybe it is just me.

Anywho, good luck in game when you get there.

That reminds me,

I checked the Server Status page. I know this sounds stupid, but would that matter? It says that the Login server is down.

Is that an onboard graphics card..? I think we might have the culprit here..

Nevermind.. I see it's a laptop.. isn't it..? It's going to be slightly harder then.. ^^' Still I think the problem might lie in the graphics chipset..

Yeah, I don't think an Intel graphics chip will hack it, although I wonder if it could if one had a sufficiently multicore and fast processor like an i7, given PS3 designs and supposed advances in Intel's graphics chips.

I'll have to re-install on my desktop, which has a dedicated video card, instead of on-board. I'll see if that helps.

Thank you for the response. ^_^
