I'm at my wits end trying to figure out this problem that started around a month ago. After using windower for around an hour (sometimes a little more or little less) my game will crash or load my character into a black void next time I zone.
I came back to the game around 3 months ago and until last month I've been duoboxing mine and my brothers character no problem. Now it seems that if I load one or both characters I'm on an invisible timer until one crashes.
I've tried reinstalling FFXI in steam 3 times and reinstalling from the Pol website once thinking it was a game problem. This has fixed nothing. I've tried turning off all my Addons and that hasn't fixed the problem. My current running guess is that windower is causing a memory leak, but I have no way to test or fix that.
I'm going to keep messing around in the settings and try and find whats causing this but I'd love feedback/help as this is greatly hurting my ability to enjoy the game as I can't do content with other players for fear I'll drop in the middle of a pull or fight.
