I know double posting is bad. But no one seems to be replying to my other thread so I'll ask a quick question here.

Has anyones service accounts page changed? Mine still just says I have an active FFXIV service account, nothing about items or Early access.

Got myself all worried over here.

Phase 4 client = Early Access Client = Release Day Client

Uninstalling P4 client is not necessary...unless you are bored.

Folks, you gotta read the threads. We've said several times that the client will be patched between now and early access.

I bought the regular edition just for early access. Got the confirmation email and started trying to enter my code last nite....and I'm still getting Error3.
I keep thinking, we all obsessed for 2 years over the game being rebuilt. Considering the wonder of PlayOnLine, why didn't it occur to anybody to worry about SE's registration process? It's like Tolkien using 300 words to describe a tree, that he could've used 30 on...SE has 35 steps, 14 emails, and 5 hoops for everybody to jump thru...if they're working.

After about 5 tries and multiple page refreshes( they must be getting hit right now). It went through, I got a pre-order code that brought me to a second page that had me enter it in, which brought me to a third page that had me verify the Pre order and the two items they give with it. I accepted. I think I'm all set :-)


Best of luck to all!


Edit - Changed Title

Well it's the same game.

This is so true and just like Tokien, SE makes it interesting with foreign languages and codes that don't work outside the Shire. I'm seriously about to pull my hair out. SE has by far the worst customer service on the planet. I paid $80 for this **** CE and I have no **** clue if I'll get it because nothing they say makes a lick of sense. To make matters worse, you have these idiots that work the help desk that don't help at all. Every reply I get is a bunch of nonsense that never addresses my original complaint. Maybe it will all work out, but this is pushing my buttons and I wish somebody, anybody knew the answer.

If anyone can help me on PS3, please for the love of God, send me a PM. I got the stupid code today and I input it only to get the same client from phase 4 and no registration process. argh....... **** you SE!

I entered my code on the website
I got a 12 character code for the ps3 to download the client

But i did not get any 20 character code or anything other than the ps3 download code
Is there a way to check to make sure i'm going to get all the items?

Well crap...I was reading a few posts on the beta forum. When you log into your account on the pre-order page, before you select the language flag, go into your account and check your profile. The language chosen in my account was the British english. I don't know how this happened, I never even saw that profile page after I registered there. Anyway, I switched to the USA english, entered my code and...I'm finally in. Registered and done.
Who can I /slap at SE for this... Smiley: dubious

I don't know why the PS3 would be different, especially since the P4 client is the same size as the one they have you download when you get the code. To be safe I've asked some of the SE CR's that I met in San Francisco for clarification, will post here if I hear from them.

Cool thank you.. I agree I dont know why you would either, it is just it doesn't say that on the beta forums. definably would be nice to know for sure.

Anyone know if the pre-order code is the same code that was used to register the game to your SE account? I've been putting that code in but it keeps giving me error 1 - error 1 is an invalid code, says a friend.

Got no e-mail, but I came back from lunch, refreshed the page, relogged in, re-typed my code and it worked 1st try. I still have no e-mail. It even gave me some instructions on how to download the client from the PS3... That is more info that I got for the beta download.

Just type soem random junk and see if you get an error 1. Then you will know if he is right. Or you could get insanely lucky and actually stumble on a real code...

No no no no no. SE doesn't even come close to being the worst. That crown is shared between Sega and Topps.

Speaking of early access codes, would any EU players be interested in mine? I had to import my physical Special Edition because Square is stupid and only sold theirs through their store and it was sold out. So I'm basically sitting on an early access code I can't use (I managed to get one for NA so I'm fine now). If you wanna PM me and ask for it I'll give it out to someone who can use actually use it >.> If for what ever reason I get multiple PMs I'll just have to choose one. Frankly it feels stupid to just hold onto it when it'll never get used because I live in the US, so I thought I'd at least be charitable to someone.

Hi, need help. Got the pre-order code and the promotion code.

However, I don't know WHICH process the use in the PS3. Does it matter if I go through the store or the account management?

Also, I don't want to lose my progress. I noticed that even though in p3 they said our character would be there, mine wasn't even though I had it in the xmb.

So, does anyone know hot to make sure we don't lose our progress? Ok, I'm paranoid. And I didn't delete the p4 client, I just don't want it over written.

Thanks for the help.

Just go through store. It will take you directly to download. The other should work too but not sure if it will take you to download or not.

Here's what mine said after I got in and it gave me my code. I am not sure which one to use, or if I should even download again since I already have the beta downloaded. I assume that once I start, it will detect the game already present and issue an update.

DOWNLOADING THE PS3 GAME CLIENT
HOW TO DOWNLOAD FROM PLAYSTATION®STORE
• Select "PlayStation®Store" icon located under "PlayStation®Network" category on XMB™ (XrossMediaBar).
• Select "Redeem Codes" on the PlayStation Store menu and enter the promotion code you received in email. Once the promotion code has been entered, proceed with the download process.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD FROM ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT
• Log in to PlayStation Network.
• Select "Account Management" icon located under "PlayStation®Network" category on XMB™ (XrossMediaBar).
• Select "Redeem Codes”.
• Enter the promotion code and proceed with the download process.
Once the download is complete, the software installation will begin automatically. If you select "Download in Background," you will return to XMB™. By selecting the "FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (Pre-order)" icon located under the "Game" category, the game client installation will begin. The installation may take several minutes to complete.
*Promotion codes can only be redeemed once.
*If the download was not completed, please try again from "Download List" under "Transaction Management" in the "Account Management" section.

That's sort of scary. Your fears may be correct. I would go and preorder it now, fast while you still can, and from a different place...

Was able to get my PS3 download code on first try today after reading people were having luck, downloading it off the store now.

However, I am hoping someone can answer this question for me. For an old 1.0 player who hasn't played in ages, how and when do I tie in my new PS3 FFXIV account to my old one? My S/E social account shows FFXIV ARR registered. My old Square Account Management account shows both FFXIV and FFXI in services, of course both are inactive. Both "accounts" are under the same email, is that all I need?

Any info would be great.

It doesn't have to be this confusing ...Smiley: dubious
