So just reinstalled FFXIV into new system and was using Pangy website to get updates but for some reason the uploader is looking for D2010.09.19.0000 Pangy does not have this. I tried 8 times to open the ports on this sorry excuse of a modem/router with no luck not getting any remotes so d/l speed is dog slow. Anyone got access to the above file? I don't understand why its asking for this as I pulled the latest from Pangy and it's sitting in the patch folder.

Please help.
Thanks

The official downloader has always been "unreliable" at its absolute best. Fortunately, there's a work-around.

You'll need to find the patch info first... Documents > My games > Final Fantasy XIV > Meta Info > Look for the patch number.

You can download any one of these patches with any bit-torrent client. Make sure you copy/paste the files downloaded back to the default folder and then start your downloader again and wait for the patch to be applied.

Yeah I actually almost considered logging on a couple months ago to say hi to some people, but after downloading the new patch(es), I got an update error. Seems my computer will no longer run FFXIV for some reason. Patch downloads fully, error pops, updater closes. That was pretty much the nail in the coffin as I have nowhere near the amount of motivation necessary; even if the problem lies with my computer itself. The fact that no other game has caused this issue for me is enough to make me just give up and uninstall.

no matter how many changes the devs make, this game will die on the table when people try the game and are faced with the ****** downloader.

Yeah, I agree. Like I said before, we really lucked out with being able to torrent the patches. Also, stolen from Doctor Mog, but so very true:
