I got a Halloween themed manicure this weekend and I did take pictures, but I haven’t uploaded them to my computer yet, so I’ll post them tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought this was weird. This very cool mount is a veteran reward for playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. It’s a reward you get for playing for 180 days. I paid for 6 months up front, so I got the veteran rewards even though the time hasn’t passed by. Anyway, look at how I’m sitting on that thing? Seriously, how do I not fall off? I should have taken a picture of my husband on his. He’s sitting cross-legged. So weird.
In other FFXIV:ARR related news, I’m about at my wits’ end. While playing this game, I get runtime errors having to do with virtual C++ calls. I get stuck on the geometry. I take forever to zone. NPC’s sometimes take MINUTES to show up on my screen. I have done a clean reinstall of the game more than once. I’ve even done a TOTALLY CLEAN reinstall of Windows TWICE! I’ve done burn in tests on my processor, RAM, and video card. I’ve updated C++ libraries. I’ve updated .NET framework. I’ve done chkdsk on both hard drives to make sure there are no bad sectors and that the drives aren’t going bad. I have changed settings. I have scoured every forum post from other players with problems even remotely similar to mine and tried everything.
AND NOTHING HELPS! Honestly, if I didn’t love Final Fantasy as much as I do and if this game wasn’t totally awesome, I would have given up on it already. But I just want to play! 😦 I am so frustrated. I wish I could just buy a brand new computer or something… /sigh
I tried running The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and that ran perfectly fine. No lag, no long loading times, no problems. I feel like the problem is with my hardware, but when other games run perfectly fine, I have to wonder…
