I've managed to get FF14 to finally work, so awesome for that. Here's my stupid question. I've been noticing that I suffer from very quick, brief freezes during cutscenes while in game. Sometimes it's a flicker of black, other times it's a quick blip of green. This causes the application to hang and ultimately freeze. It's not heat, I've been thorough with that. However, I noticed for some reason my NVidia Control Panel was forcing a bunch of things. It was overriding in game ambient occlusion, AA, and Negative LOD bias to name a few. The meat of the stupid here is, could this possibly be the root of my problem; these global overrides? Keep in mind I've suffered this issue in other games as well and I have no idea how long my settings have been fouled like that.
I appreciate the help.
