You're opening up the map via Journal > Quest > View Map (or whatever in the quest text)?

You might have to reinstall, sounds like a corrupted file or something if they worked before...

The short answer? File systems can do that.

The long answer can be painful...

Bios check-sum error on a previous write.
FAT mis-calculation/error causes write to occur somewhere already in use on disk
File system crash while accessing the disk
Disk corruption in a location not associated with the issue, but during a repair, data is moved erroneously.
Disk corruption in a location associated with the issue, moved files did not have 100% data restored
You moved or modified a file in one of the directories
A bug in a patch that failed to properly update a file
... 1,000,000 more equally unlikely possibilities... Which makes trying to figure out why not so important (as it is very rare and usually requires the perfect alignment of problems for something like this to occur, and is far easier to fix than to diagnose).
And the best part is, at the end of the day, if it is just a corrupt file, it doesn't matter (except for the Disk Corruption or the you moving a file, as one may mean your hard-drive may be dying, and the other falls into the category of don't do that).

I was running around and found the guy who i needed to talk to. I was on the quest "Never The Twain Shall Meet" when i got to the point where the 2 people are fighting on the ship and you need to pick one of them to fight i was doing 0 damage for some reason and towards the end of the fight they both got down to 1% HP and where hitting each other for 0 damage then all the sudden one of them died and i got the C/S and now everything is working fine again. Also before all of this happen when my maps where loading up white my FPS was running really low for some reason it was at 28-32 i run 2 FFXIV on my laptop and usally have 45-55 FPS when both accounts running at the same time the max is 60. But anway after that everything was back to normal kinda wierd this happen but thanks for all the help and replying to the post!
