Darksea, you problem is bugging me but I think maybe because I need more info.

There are two codes. The one you get for pre-ordering is the 18 digit code. This one is registered at http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/

Once you register that one, you get another code that you enter in the launcher.

Try logging in through the website I linked above. You said...

This is right. There is a Square Enix ID which you use to link your FFXI or FFXIV service accounts to, but there is also a Square Enix Members account. It's different, but you can link your Square Enix ID to this account. Go ahead and complete the registration for this website. Once you finish setting that up, you'll probably get redirected back to the pre-order website but if not then go to http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/ again.

From there, click your name at the top right of the screen and select 'My Profile'. Next, click the button with the gear at the top right that says 'Settings'. Add your name, date of birth and anything else it asks for. Make sure that you select 'English(US)' here as your language. Save everything and go back to http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/

Maybe there was a step in there that was missing. Let me know what you come up with.

Ok so I am totally confused...

1. I purchased the original XIV in 2010 SE
2. I never paid any money for a subscription
3. I wanna give this new version a try but I will NOT purchase the game again since I already bought the horrible version

What do I do? I logged into SE and see that FFXIV is one of my games besides FFXI. Is there something else I need to do besides purchasing a subscription or crysta to pay for the play time. Does my already bought copy of the game work and do I just update that when I log into the client?

1.0 players who didn't pre-order go here for details about moving to ARR.

OMG...thank you thank you thank you!!! Finally lol. Okay got my sub re-activated and it now lists me as a subscriber with 14 days of time left...I am assuming because I paid for the game in version 1.0. I left the client downloading when I left home today so hopefully when I get home I will be good to go depending on the server fiasco lol. It says I get:

Garlond Goggles and Asuron Armguards as a bonus or something

Thanks again Filth!

Thanks, this link allowed me to activate my service, but how do I download the ARR client?

Link to download the Final Fantasy XIV client: http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/playersdownload/na/

I apologize if the above link was posted somewhere else in this thread, but I didn't see it and had to dig through the FFXIV Support Center FAQ to find it.

Personally, I purchased the SE of FFXIV version 1.0 three years ago and now have 14 days of free game time showing on my Mog Station account. I participated in the beta, but I uninstalled the client because I'm awesome and like to make things more difficult, it seems. I'm downloading the client via the above link now.

I didn't have that link up because until today most people were using the pre-order site, but there's also access through the mog station and that's something people need to get familiar with anyway. Thanks for the contribution though. I'll go ahead and update the OP with the link Smiley: grin

Updated with more info on PS3 registration and some swifty, nifty links that might come in handy and some speculation on my part about registering physical copies of ARR from early access accounts. Shoutouts to darexius2010 and Togikagi for the contributions Smiley: blush

Update here, so it won't accept the pre-order code since I already used it. There is no new code for the regular version that I have been able to find. So stuck not being able to play. Not fricken impressed SE, every other company manages a usually smoothish transition from early access to release, well a hella of a lot smoother than this. SE you continue you show us a level of ineptitude that was previously though unattainable. (Slow golf clap) congratulations SE for being the best of the worst.

What platform are you using? If it's PC are you digital download or physical disc? Where did you order from?
