I have FF XIV 1.0 CE
I have a NA early access 18 digit code across 4 fields
When I start the launcher and Login I am told to enter my pre access code and told to follow the url provided http://entry.ffxiv.com/pre-order_code/na to enter the code.
When I do this it has me to again login to my account.
When I login it brings up a new window called the "Pre-order code registration page that contains FIVE fields. (which I believe is the Eu code format)
Entering a NA code of course comes up invalid
Using a different link http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com which displays a message stating that there WAS a problem with the Early Access PC redemption code for the NA market but that now it was fixed. Real good news, for a brief moment I actually had hope.
The first thing it asked me to do was login.
When I do so it takes me to a new page to complete information for the account.
When I try to do this I get a message saying that account is already taken.
So apparently the Launcher recognizes my account but thinks it is a Eu account.
While the NA site apparently will only accept new accounts.
