Hey guys and galls. I have been having Windower for a while and I have always had this issue. After nearly months of doing research on my own trying to figure out what the issue could be I decided to post this here before I went absolutely MAD!
The windower application works perfectly and runs POL without an issue, but my issue comes in after I hit the "Play" button and POL goes into the "Checking for updates" phase. After that phase when POL closes and it goes to launch FFXI, I am greeted with this wonderful black screen! >> https://www.dropbox.....19.28.jpg?dl=0 << It gives me no error code or anything that would seemingly prove useful in figuring out what the main issue could be.
So far I have tried:
- Launching Vanilla FFXI (Runs like a charm)
- Running Windower without addons and plugins
- Various windowed modes
- FULLY uninstalling both FFXI and Windower, then doing a clean install
- Ran, updated, and patched vanilla POL before launching Windower
- Using the developer build of Windower instead of the normal
- Checked my drivers drivers
- Installing Windower in various locations on my computer (Within the POL folder and so on)
- And a few other things
So far nothing has really made any difference in the results.
Aaaand here are my specs! (Yes, I am running Windows 10, but I have had this issue even when I was using Windows 7)
