    POL was originally intended also to be a launch pad for a lot more than just FFXI and tetra master, but plans changed...

    Edit: Smash, have you traded the recollections for anima in Jeuno?

    Yeah, leveling just became completely revolutionized.

    Edit: Basically, you're going to be able to sync your own level to a party member's (much like the... now obsolete buddy system hats). Dropping from 75 to 10, getting the same experience points as a level 10 would. More important, it also downlevels your gear. Like, say, an haubergeon would have +1 STR at level 10. This is the same in capped areas.
    When is the next Version update scheduled? You guys might have a fully AF'd paladin to play with soon.

    Unfortunately, I don't care about either of those (Spore maybe a little, but I'm not going to get it), the only things I'm interested in are coming in October and November. (STALKER: Clear Sky, Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, GTAIV, and Left 4 Dead)

    I so called this

    I used to play with a friend with our mandragora berets, and I used to say "It'd be great if SE would just scale equips down!"

    Also, that mandragora beret thing was kind of a hassle, but this system sounds really solid

    This actually makes me want to play. It was tough to level my WHM last time (he's 30ish, maybe 34?) and it was a pain to get a party. With this change, it would be a lot easier to find a party. Maybe I will start playing....


    ....no, no I can't. I have no one to play with on Seraph. But I could start a new char on Carbuncle.

    Finished the Promyvion Mea with 15 HP left. DEATH BLINKED, BISHES!

    And then I get flung across the sky and have little taru hands rummaging through my pockets while I was out cold. *Shudder* Yuck.

    Anyone here use app radar and knows how to reside the whole thing? It is uncomfortably small on my screen, and I would like to make the whole map larger. This is not to be confused with zooming in, which magifys nicely, but cuts down the viewable portion of the map to like, 25%.

    Edit: Smash fixed me up.

    Oh man, this is going to make partying and leveling SO much easier.

    ... I might actually try playing on Fenrir AND Carbuncle at the same time when this goes live.

    Also, I see Windower has plenty of perks but does it ultimately make that much of a difference? I do see a few things that look handy though... mmm, being able to monitor my recast times. Sounds handy for when I start maging it up.

    Yes, it is handy. Even with Square allowing a windowed mode natively, the windower has better functionality even without all the plugins.

    We had a discussion earlier how you can have a purer FFXI experience without all the plugins.

    My excuse however is I am super lazy, super super lazy.

    One thing about the windower that I find inconvenient is the buff timers. They are nice and all, but frequently inaccurate and they block menus and such. The buffs may not be visible behind whatever window is in the upper left, but the timers are always on top.

    Those aren't buff timers, those are recast timers.

    Not those, the ones that overlap the buff icons.

    You can move those timers! Go into the plugins folder and find recast.ini, then fiddle with the X and Y values til you get it where you want it

    Yeah, I saw that. I guess I'm just too used to other companies throwing out info on big changes and saying "yeah, check this out, it's coming in an upcoming patch", when said patch might be several down the road.

    Anyway, just out of curiosity, why did you stop leveling your WHM?

    Is it possible to change the screen resolution or to access any kind of options menu from the game?

    Log out and run the config program. In game options are quite limited.

    A note of advice. While it may be possible to solo the 5-2 boss on WHM/NIN... it helps a heck of a lot if you bring juices or yag drinks for mp.

    doh.

    Either way, Rank 6 in Windy last night.
