Edit: I tried all of the suggestions given (with the exception of a new GPU), but what ultimately worked was completely uninstalling all of my graphics drivers and reinstalling (again). Just wanted to update this post in case anyone else had this issue.
This is my first time back on the forums and FFXIV since about nine months or so ago. I figured I'd take a look around and see what has changed. So far, I like what I see. I've just had one problem that's been bugging me like crazy...
I keep getting stuck around Limsa. I'm assuming it's on the edges of loaded areas and non loaded areas. It happens mostly in in the upper decks around 7-6 and 7-7. I get stuck on the brigdes and in doorways, but it looks like the area ahead of me has yet to load (chunks of the bridges and buildings in the area ahead of me are missing). I can only spin my character when I get stuck. I can still chat, pull up my menu, see others moving, etc... I can teleport, and that seems to unstick me. With how often it happens, I'll run out of anima quickly.
Also, (I don't know if this is related...) I can't seem to get to the airship docks from the crow's lift. I had been up there when I first hopped on and went exploring, but I can't now. I keep getting stuck with a black screen with the chat log and hp/mp/exp bars visible.
Anyone else run into this? Any tips or suggestions?
Cpu: i7 950
RAM: 6gigs DDR3
Gpu: Nvidia GeForce GTX 465
mobo: gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Psu: Antec 750W
My connection is fine (hard line to cable router), and I've updated my drivers.
Any and all help is appreciated!
