Post HOW TO CONNECT to Fantasy World server
Welcome, this is the guide, if you need help on the guide contact me on irc,do step 31 first

if you dont have the game: download it using bittorrent or utorrent at: ... a-edition/

Run “FINALFANTASYXIUCAE.exe”. This will uncompress the digital download files and begin installing Playonline Viewer, Final Fantasy XI, and each expansion. It will ask you to select “next” a few times for each installation.
The order installed is automated, after it installs one the next will start soonafter. Keep doing so until it installs everything (Wings of the Goddess expansion will be last to install).

1. Install PlayOnline, Final Fantasy XI, and then all the expansions (including Wings of the Goddess).

2. Run PlayOnline and let it update.
3. Close PlayOnline viewer.
4. Download the following file:
5. Extract its contents to your c:\program files\PlayOnline\Squareenix\Final Fantasy XI.
6. Run PlayOnline again and choose For PlayOnline Members
7. At the Add Member page enter something for the Member Name.
8. Enter ABCD1234 for the PlayOnline ID
9. Select Register, Yes, OK.
10. Select Check Files on the left of the screen.
11. Click on PlayOnline Viewer then select Final Fantasy XI from the drop down, then Check Files.
12. After the 7 or so hours of updating, FFXI should be up to date.
13. Exit PlayOnline Viewer.
14. Copy the data folder at C:\Program Files\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\PlayOnlineViewer\data to the Final Fantasy XI directory at C:\Program Files\PlayOnline \SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI.
15. Afterwards you should have the directory C:\Program Files\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\data.


22. use the ffxi-boot client

just put the files from within the ffxi-boot folder to your instal dir in:

and change the ffxi-boot.ini with you username and password and the ip for the server

it should look like this:

SERVIP = <---- server ip!
USERNAME = username
PASSWORD = password

## VERSION can be NA,EU or JP. This needs to reflect the POL version you have installed.
X_RES = 1024
Y_RES = 768

change username and password with yours

run ffxi-boot

23. The username and password should be over 6 characters long.
24. You can save the username and password into the ffxi-boot.ini.
25. Choose option 1; Login using existing account
26. Login with username and password.
27. FFXI should load and be on the splash screen. Choose Accept.
28. Create a Character, Select a Country, then choose Yes to Register and begin play.
29. it could happen that it gets stuck 1 or 2 time right before going into the game,but dont worry it will do it perfectly the second or third time and from then it will load normally everytime

30.if you get MSVCR100.dll is missing you need to download one of the two:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) ... px?id=5555

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) ... x?id=14632

and if you get failed accept 10093.

you didnt run it as admin on vista.
or you didnt copy the data folder.
or you have to uninstall .and then instal and update it again :(

31. contact me on irc:

If you're not:
Web chat:

2: at windurst walls/ just talk to anini at H-5 to get all
3: at north san d'oria/ just talk to anilla at J-8 to get all

Common Errors

MSVCP110.dll is Missing

You will need to install the correct Redistributable Package from Microsoft. Please note that you cannot just take any of those, you need to pick the one that goes with your very specific version of Visual Studio. The link for example is for VS 2012 SP1. If you have another version, you need another vcredist package.

MSVCR110D.dll is Missing

The Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 must be installed in target machines.

msvcr110.dll is Missing

You need to install the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 from here: ... st_x86.exe

Dual Boxing Crashes Second Client

This happens when running the clients in admin mode! Don't run as an admin.

Accept Failed 10093

Client is out of date. Run POL and update.

Open your FFXI folder. Then go into ROM\0 An delete 0.dat Open POL Then open regular PlayOnline, on the left click 'Check Files' select FFXi from the list.

Error 10092

Issue = Bad client file Fix =

1. Lets start with the easy stuff please make sure you have the ini and Final fantasy Config bothe set to the same resolution and make sure you are running the game as an admin!

2. If one did not work you may need to add your data folder from play online to the final fantasy ffxi folder! This could also Show you Build_100

3. If steps 1 and 2 are not working you may need to launch play online and try to recover your ffxi files through Check File This could also Show you Build_100


Your character is still logged in. Wait a 2-5 mins and try again. Your char has to time out.


Fix = wait 2-5 min continued login after this error could get you error 3001

Fix = This can also mean the login server is online but the game server itself has crashed. I will of course have it back up asap aka when i notice its down.

Build_100 When launching FFXI-boot

1. If one did not work you may need to add your data folder from play online to the final fantasy ffxi folder!

2. If steps 1 and 2 are not working you may need to launch play online and try to recover your ffxi files through Check File

3. This also happens if you try to enter a zone/expansion you don't have installed. Ask a GM to move your char or buy and install the expansion, your move.

FFXI - 3305

Your char probably hasn't timed out properly, wait 2 mins and try again. If that didn't work then server is probably down.


3101 is a disconnect with you and the login server.

The server could be down or ashita is outdated.

Another problem could be that your ashita is outdated (Weird, I know... but I had a guy with this issue and updating ashita fixed it)

FFXI-3322 while creating my character

1. Go to Playoneline Viewer folder (usually in C:/programs)

2. Copy data folder

3. Paste it in Final Fantasy XI folder

If that doesn't work, name could be taken or be too short.

You could not be logged in!

Password or username was not correct. Make sure the account exists.

Getting Japanese Error When Creating Char

The japanese error is mostly because your character name is already taken.

Check files only has PlayOnline Viewer and Tetra

Download this patch patch

Extract its contents to your PlayOnline/Squareenix/Final Fantasy XI directory.

I cannot see my character, any npcs or any players

Update your client. Copy the patch into ffxi directory and check files.

Can't repair file after deleteing .dat from ROM

Use the patch, check files and copy your 'data' folder over from /PlayOnlineViewer/ to /FINAL FANTASY XI/

/check not working anymore

Update your client!!

Error::FFXiLogin init_tcp_socket (10061)

Update ashita and your client!

Invisible character models

Try installing this Microsoft Package

Update your graphics driver


control panel > device manager > display adapters and chose the only one listed. It said the device is working properly, click the driver tab and select update driver > browse my computer for driver software > let me pick from a list of device drivers.

It listed 3 different drivers, The first one was Microsoft Basic Display Adapter I didn't choose that one, the other ones listed were 'Intel(R) HD Graphics' and 'Intel(R) HD Graphics Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.2).

Couldn't Find Server

Keep in mind the login server could be down. You can try pinging the server from the cmd prompt.

Game Settings Do Not Save

Run the booter in admin mode. Right click and click on run as admin.

Can't Receive tells

Your name is too long or relog.


Don't connect to play online. Create an account and go straight to check files.

build_100 Error

Update your client

Dual boxing overwrites my macros and settings

Use a different book.

Weird Things are Happening

Seriously your client is out of update. Update it.

Post Re: guide to connect to server
mXI Boot

If you prefer the MXI FFXI Loader, this should be compatible with DarkStar servers as well.
the one that blackoni gave above is perfect use that one!

mXI windower features (light luggage, distance, etc.) can potentially cause you problems while playing. If you have issues, this is the first thing to disable. Windower itself seams to work fine on Dark Star.

Download mXI 0.91_Darkstar version

Extract the contents of the archive into the PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI directory.
Open Client.ini in a text editor.
Change SERVIP to the IP address of my server

You will also need to set X_RES and Y_RES to the resolution your game will be running at or it will look streteched or squashed.

If you plan to play on this server, you MUST disable the Light Luggage plugin in scripts/init.txt or YOU WILL LIKELY BE BANNED. This plugin unnecessarily spams auto-sort on the server and can disrupt play for everyone.

If you have any problems, set WINDOWERMODE to 2, which will disable all of the windower plugins. If it works, try disabling all of your windower plugins in scripts/init.txt and then re-enable them one at a time to determine which one is causing a crash. It may also help to DISABLE windowed mode the the FFXI configuration utility and/or extract mXI to a directory other than the PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI directory and run it from that location instead.
