    FFXI crashes completely when i try to access the test server. Please assist.

    I'm having trouble logging accessing the test server. I tried a couple weeks ago and when it is suppose to go to the full screen, my screen says auto adjusting in progress then crashes. Any solutions?

    Same Issue:
    * Downloaded Install/Image zips
    * Extracted Zips (following the Readme in the Install zip)
    * Copied the Image Files before accessing the Test Client
    * Ran Update (After File Transfer)
    * Update Complete > Full Screen > POL Crash

    Clearly just blocking those pesky non-JP Clients from clogging up the server with people who's feedback won't be listened too.




    I kid i kid. Mostly. Sorry, I'm very jaded these days Even though i know its not true.

    If you people just visited that forum first, you'd discover the simple answer: You didn't install it right.

    Except!

    My brother did visit the forum first, Tried the trouble shooting, and read the readme and followed the instructions. and still had the issue, my guess is he set it up wrong.

    But you don't have to go straight into assuming everyone having the problem ignorantly and blindly went ignored the help text/what have you.

    i can't speak for every poster here though. I personally set up my Test server fine on my PC, My brother was the one with the issue and he knows more about computers then me. While i still think he probably did set it up wrong, He did research the issue first before making the first above comment.

    I told him it was likely due to the Test server maint... Oh well.

    I'm sorry, but i'm not accusing people of being ignorant (but it does make logical sense to post a test-server related topic in a test-server forum). I'm only saying that they should have looked/searched for the solution first. I've posted the solution to this problem multiple times. Chances are, if you're having a problem, someone else has had it too, after all.

    The problem is that when you extract the zip files, all the files go inside a folder called FFXI. The thing is, you're not supposed to move this folder to the install directory. You're supposed to move only the stuff inside of it. Otherwise, all the files are in the wrong place and the game crashes because it can't find most of its data. They don't make this clear, and the mistake is understandable.
