    I'm currently waiting for a PC copy to be mailed to me. However even the SE store is outta stock (though they did open buying of the PC version). So since it's pointless to buy two PS3 versions (till I get the other one back) better I pick up one of each,

    So currently have a character on my wife's account named Cheira Airdancer, currently a Lancer

    And Leviathan is closed for new characters at this time.

    According to account management they will be offering a world transfer service later. So I might have to use that to transfer, and it starts mid sep

    Edit 2: It's open and I'm making a blah character till I can make an actual character to hold the server

    Edit 3: Okay actual character is Cheria Creme (her hair makes me think of like Strawberry creme)

    Should we have a thread for sharing crafting materials? As a blacksmith, I have tons of tools for various crafting classes that I've built just to check them off my list.

    We don't have a ton of conversation going in here, so any crafting discussion should be able to take place here for now. If that changes, we can expand out.

    When we get a chance of when I'm on and some one who can invite is on I'd like to get one for Cheria Creme. I'm trying to make a second character but servers locked again. Her name will be Laura Deadeye when I can make her though

    Edit 1: Was able to make her now that it's super late at night

    Edit 2: Was able to make an Arcanist as well named Alara Lightcaller. That way I can experience each cities story independently.

    Has anyone had the game client crash and lock-up their whole PC? This happened to me twice, once during character creation and once during the opening cutscene. I can't alt-tab or bring up task manager. I played 1.0 and beta without any such issues. I have no idea what's causing this.

    I have mostly been playing on PS3, but from what little I have played on PC I've not had it crash.

    Hasn't happened to me even once. One of the high level bosses will occasionally become invisible and therefore untargetable, something that seems to happen to a small number of players. Might need to update GFX drivers, but considering this is the only technical issue I've ever experienced with the game it seems like something thats wrong on SE's side. I have heard from PS3 players that FATE parties can be frustrating at times trying to render 30+ players moving and fighting hordes of enemies all at once.

    Drivers are up to date, and no major changes were made to the PC since playing ARR beta. The audio grinds to a halt and the whole system freezes. Have to do a cold shutdown.

    Could be a part on your system going bad.

    Managed to buy the game the other day, and am now currently updating the launcher. Since it's only the standard, I'm still on the server I was at before, Ultros. But I heard that server transfers will be available soon, so depending on where my friend wants to transfer to, I may be on a server with you all (and even if I'm not, I'll make another character behind his back).

    I've had some crashes. I did some searching and found other people with the same problem. All of them were using i7 processors. When I started, I was getting 2-3 crashes per a 4-5 hour play session.

    I've done a handful of things, and managed to get it to where I've had 1 crash over the last 12 hours. One was turning off Speedstep in the Bios. The other was upgrading to ATI Catalyst beta 10. The last, I downgraded it to 1600x900 full screen, and I've set it to Midgrade Desktop then turned antialiasing on to create a custom quality level. After doing all these, it still gets the screen where it would have normally crashed, but it recovers from it about 4/5ths of the times I get that screen.

    I have no idea what exactly improved the crashing. I'm going to try reversing the quality settings back to Laptop Highgrade soon and see if my crashes go up. When I first played, I was doing 1920x1200 on high-laptop, and the FPS was pretty decent. I've watched the GPU temperature when it's in these high modes, and the activity on the GPU is only around 60% and the temperature is about 75 degrees, which is significantly below where it is for other games. I'm thinking it has to be something with the CPU. When I was doing Bitcoin Mining, my GPU would sit for months on end at 100% and 80 degrees with no problems.

    I'm debating picking the game up for PS3 instead, then just playing it that way until the PS4 version comes out. Which is funny, because the PC I have here was purchased 3 years ago for $2000 with the specific intent of playing FF14 on it.

    My PC version came in and I have found out that with registering both a PS3 and a PC version on the same account I got 2 30 day free trial subs. :D 60 days of game time goodness.
