I have this error like this page when I start the game.

frontier.ffxiv.com/beta3/eula.html?lang=... (http://frontier.ffxiv.com/beta3/eula.html?lang=en&region=2)

After that I can't click "Next" to go to next page.

What should I do?

Error = "HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)"

Alright, after working on this for nearly 4 hours, I have finally figured out all the way to solve this issue and have narrowed it down! If you are unable to link your accounts and get passed the screen all you need to do is the fallowing:

1) Create or get access to a second account on your PS3

2) Turn On Cookies on your internet browser on PS3 (Hitting triangle and going to tools, cookies, Allow)

Once you do these, log into the alternate account and enter you Sqaure ID and Beta Key, which should then take you to the acitivation page and ask if you are sure you want to link the two accounts. Instead of hitting yes, hold down the PS button on the controller and quit back to the XMB Menu. From there, log out of the alternate account and log into your main account, making sure you have your Cookies On and Javescript On, then go back into the game, enter your Square ID, accept that the account mergance, and bomb, your game should start installing the game!

Mine is currently downloading and this has seemed to fix the issue for me and everyone else who has been having trouble getting this game to load up properly. I hope this helps everyone else and have fun playing the game :)

Turn on cookies on your PS3 internet browser (hit triangle, select tools, cookies, allow) and make sure Javascript is turned on. This should fix the issue. Have fun in the beta :)

LOL! I know the feeling. Been trying this for hours, but I am so happy I got it to work. Some people are reporting that all you need to do is allow cookies on your PS3 Browser, but IDK if it was just that, so I just put how I did it.


BTW, you want to add eachother over PSN? My user name is therealagent81. Would be nice to have guys to play the game with once I get it downloaded :)

15th Jun 2013, 00:54

I heard it is only weekends too, and I think my friend was saying that all info is on the tester forums so I might as well check it out. I am playing on Behemoth as well. Character is Ryder Hachiko, and I only got to level 4 because I barely played. I tried Archer out!

If you were complaining about lag on your PS3 version of the beta, you have internet problems my friend. I was running in FATE's of 50 to 100 people and I didn't even see a stutter. You can't blame SE for that. If you uninstalled it, you're just missing out on a fantastic game. However, if your internet is truly to blame, then you probably wouldn't be able to play it anyhow.

Yeah, a lot of people from this forum decided to roll on Behemoth. I'm on Gilgamesh however. LVL 16 Lancer - LVL 14 Carpenter - LVL 8 Botanist.


Character name is Kayn Lionfire if anyone wants to look me up. I doubt anyone else is on the same server though. Either way, I'm probably going to stay with the same character name and server starting in phase 4. Unless one of my RL friends has a reason for us to start on some other server.

The schedule used this past weekend was Friday 2 a.m. PDT to Sunday 2 a.m. PDT. This coming weekend will likely follow suit. Yoshi-P has mentioned that the later stages of the P3 beta (Read: weekends 3 and 4) may be somewhat longer.


Although I believe it is un-confirmed, there are a lot of rumors that phase 4 of beta (considered to be open beta) will be "24/7".

I'm not sure there will even be a fourth week of phase 3. Take a look at the beta roadmap. It states there that phase 3 will be "1 - 3 weeks" so a week 4 seems unlikely. Not impossible though. I would guess that the third week will probably last longer than the 2 days we had this last weekend. Then they'll take a week or two before opening it up for phase 4.

This is true although I thought I recalled Yoshi-P saying P3 would be "about a month". Though 3 weeks certainly fits the "about" description. Either way, hopefully we'll get a bit more time in. The servers were incredibly stable after the initial character creation/login blitz friday morning.

Edit: The comment from Yoshi I thought I heard was from E3. This could just be a case of wishful thinking.

VA will be in at launch and is only planned for the main storyline quests so far. Also I believe they are NOT planning to implement ARC/SCH/SMN by P4, though why I'm not sure. I would post official statements but am having trouble finding them and am at work, sorry.

Although I believe it is un-confirmed, there are a lot of rumors that phase 4 of beta (considered to be open beta) will be "24/7".






I'm not sure there will even be a fourth week of phase 3. Take a look at the beta roadmap. It states there that phase 3 will be "1 - 3 weeks" so a week 4 seems unlikely. Not impossible though. I would guess that the third week will probably last longer than the 2 days we had this last weekend. Then they'll take a week or two before opening it up for phase 4.









Alright, thanks for the info, Rhuvian. :)

Aside from the obvious complaints that you can't play the beta since it ONLY TAKES PLACE ON WEEKENDS (I wonder how many people are really going to stay uninformed about this), why the hell would they just randomly let you make a combat companion? The game need no companion by talking to NPC. It's already easy enough. Besides, it's already been stated that we'll get companions at some point, but I'm pretty sure you'll have to earn it. I know, the earning thing is scary to many people. It will work out though, I promise.

Seroiusly? It's only playable on weekends? That's my most busy times for the last and next 5 months. If Square-Enix wants some of us to participate, they need to make it an open ended beta because they won't get anything out of me if they just keep it to weekends.

The Beta is only open on Fridays and Saturdays, so try putting in you code on one of those days. I got the e-mail on a Friday, downloaded the game that night and started playing on Saturday. You might want to wait until Phase 4 (open beta) because I'm pretty sure there's only one weekend of Phases 3 (closed beta) left. Which would be the weekend you try to download the game. All characters will be deleted to free up space on the servers. Phase 4 characters will not be deleted. So I would wait, so you can take your character from Phase 4 into the actual game. I'm sorry you didn't get in to the Phase 3.

8th Jul 2013, 12:03
yea eric is right and i believe they will be a week or two break between the end of phase 3 and beginning of phase 4, so you can play it this weekend from friday at 5 am to 5 am sunday.

This issue will be resolved a day or two before Early Access starts. The Launcher is in Maintenance mode as the patch needed for Early Access is not ready to be distributed and the game itself is under Maintenance for fixes from the Open Beta. It will be resolved though, so don't worry.

NA - Download the Game (http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/playersdownload/na/)

If you have the BETA 4 client installed:
Note: if you took part in the Final Beta test of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, you will not need to download the game client again. You just need to patch it once the launcher is done with maintenance

Hi All,
I have registered my preorder and added my Game code to be able to play for the early launch.

I downloaded the client, which seems to be just the launcher, which I did expect. When I run FFXIV the launcher loads, and I assume it should start the 20gb download at this point. Instead, I get a splash screen saying Maintenance.

Is this expected?
Will the download start sometime soon?

Thanks

You're welcome! :D Glad I can help! Depending on how many people are trying to download the patch, your download speed "may" not be optimal, so my suggestion would be to start the download when you can. The patch is usually available around 2am PDT/5am EDT/9am GMT.

Man I hope they're not serious about opening up the patcher to download the whole game on Friday... They are having problems with server loads as it is... I don't like doing things last minute. If something happens, fingers crossed, then there may be a delay for some of us on early access. They need to allow the updating tomorrow so our download speeds won't be 40 kb/s on Friday.

For the most part, the patching process of the game has gone without issue, despite how many people patched for the Open Beta. Some people reported slower speeds than normal for them, but nothing was drastically slow from what I saw being reported so the patching process should be fine.

The game is still being fixed and adjusted from bugs and feedback that was received during the Open Beta. The patch for the rest of the game content needs to be made to reflect any changes that were done in this period to eradicate major bugs from being in the Release and Early Access versions of the game.

I'm on ps3 and was given my early access code (twice, I might add) through email. I wanted to put it in to see if I could at least start the download but instead, faced with this message.

'Code maybe entered incorrectly or maybe expired'

I checked and rechecked the code to make double sure when I plugged it into my PSN and everything was dead on, yet I was still getting that pop up every time I tried it. I'm a bit worried, but I had a feeling it had something to do with all the craziness that's been going on. I just hope my code is not expired, because that would be a bummer.

This is a known issue currently. You will need to contact support and see if they can help you, or at least ensure that they know that you have been affected with this issue when they release a fix. Theoretically you will still be able to use that code, just not yet, or they may send you a new code if that is what is deemed necessary.

If you where in Beta 4, you just need to patch the game (around 10gig patch with soundfiles etc). If you don't want to download the patch, you can download the full game which has already been patched game at:

EU - Download the Game (http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/playersdownload/eu/)

Didnt know that. I only know that the full release is about 18-20gb large. But if you have the Beta4 client, there is just a patch to finish it, around 10-12gb. I used that link the same day i got the early access email. Downloaded 2 files, 1 for 7335mb and one for 12311mb

EDIT:
I had beta4 client, but I had uninstalled it before i knew that only had to patch it. So I had to redownload it all =(

The language files seems to be missing from the target server. This could be due to maintenance. I suggest waiting a couple of hours then try again. Others have had same issue with german and french language, but your the first i've seen with english. Some have reinstalled and it worked for them, but others havent been so lucky.,

I do suggest uninstalling all beta launchers then reinstall the new one.

Hey everyone,

So last night I'd thought I'd load up the launcher to see if there was an update (on the wifes profile) and there was a 9mb update for the launcher and then some new service agreements to accept but no big update yet, so I came out of the launcher.

Later in the night I decided to do the same on my other PS3 on my account, did the launcher update fine and then I got a message that I need to register the game serial that comes with the box to play and I was like WTF!

So I decided to check my PS3 account management>transactions>services which I had done previously after using EA code so I knew it did say early access. However when selecting the PS3 account management it said 'Currently unavailable due to maintenance' even though I was signed into the PSN ok.

So does this mean that if the PS3 account management system ever goes down then we won't be able to play even if we're signed into the network? Obviously the game is checking to see if we are authorised to play but if it cannot receive the info due to the PS3 bit being down I gather we're up poop creek without a paddle! :(

Looks like I get to be a Square Enix intern for the weekend.

At the following time, we will be performing emergency maintenance. During this period, the Worlds listed below will be unavailable.

As we previously announced on the “Regarding the Instance-Related Issues (Aug. 24)” announcement, we will be conducting maintenance to address the issue wherein players are unable to access instances.

While we previously stated that we will be optimizing the servers prior to the emergency maintenance, we will require additional time to also implement counter measures to decrease the load on the servers.

While we estimate the time frame of the maintenance to be around two and a half hours, we will do our best to complete the maintenance as soon as possible.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

[Date & Time]
Aug. 24, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (PDT)

You know why this is so fail.

8 hours 30 minutes ago they announced that there was issues with quests/dungeons/instances. Why not take the server down then?

No Let's wait 9 hours - basically and take the servers down during peak time. How ******* bad do you guys want to be. I knew there would be issues during launch but way to drop the ball on this one.

hey men can you PLEASE help me? i didnt get my early access code and i pre ordered 2 days ago.

A lot of people are having that problem, and a lot of them have been waiting much longer than two days (I have seen some that have been waiting since July.) I saw on Square's site that they are sending out access codes every 15 minutes, but to be patient. There are a lot of people in line. Also, they probably have a majority of their support staff working on the current maintenance which affects all players, and will address more individual issues once that is taken care of. All you can do is submit a ticket on their support page and then wait.

Back to the topic of the thread, has anyone seen any updates about the servers? I saw on the twitter feed a few hours ago that maintenance was finished earlier than expected, but arrstatus.com is still showing the NA/EU servers down, and I have not been able to access the world list.

Hello.

I don't know why Square Enix fails to much, this was there time to get something right.

No idea why we rushed to play on the head start or even paid for this game.

They took the servers down for EMERGENCY MAINTENANCE which fixed NOTHING.

The story line quests still bugged the duty finder still bugged.

Why take the servers down when you DIDNT FIX ANYTHING.

So ******* annoying.

Great so servers will be coming down again because you asian morons couldn't fix **** the first time.

If you knew what I was talking about, maybe you'd understand.

They had announced in the game that there are KNOWN issues to them in regards to duty finder/quest line - story quests progression.
We can't progress through the game because of these issues which still aren't working from 13 hours ago. Doesn't make sense to me.

That's the problem. You can't anticipate stuff like this. If you "overprepare" your servers and don't get as many people as you thought, then it costs more in server costs and the profit margins go out of whack. Under prepare and this happens. It's much safer to under prepare and then upgrade the servers when needed.

That's also part of the reason for early access after the beta tests. Slowly adding more and more players, finding their limitations, and upgrading from there.
If you want to play with no bugs, wait a month or two, then log in. If you come in right at or before launch time, expect issues.

Thank you for posting this! I think a lot of the anger coming out in this forum is from people who can't find information anywhere else, and since SE isn't active here they think they are just getting ignored and not being given any information on what is happening.

Ok good, they are fixing the servers. What about people stuck with no code or an invalid code.

Do they ever plan on addressing these people? At least let us know where we stand and when we can expect code delivery and or invalid codes to be redeemable. Ive gotten verification from GMG that the code I have is valid and for my region...

Does anyone at SE plan on addressing all the people who paid and got no redeemable code?

Yeahhhh I think Lodestone is down, I can't log in. I got the maintenance with no explanation as well, played for about ten more minutes and got canned. I think the Stone has been down since this morning and it has something to do with the subscriptions linking to the accounts (like your characters and everything being on Lodestone) so they have to fix it.

What do you expect them to do in the NA/EU server farm right NOW? This JP maintenance is to fix widespread 90000 errors which we are not suffering from to such a large extent, it is NOT adding the new servers.

So quit whining about SE's JP favouritism, there is NOTHING that SE can do on the NA/EU servers TODAY!

No probs mate, it does seem that with the different timezones this maintenance hits many regions in prime time doesn't it? Whereas for us here in the UK it's early to mid morning, and people are saying SE favour the JP servers more but this works out good for UK and EU gamers for a change!
