I have recently bought Final Fantasy 11 and am absolutely loving the game (even if it is starting to look a bit dated!). I downloaded the full pack from Steam, with all add ons, and when I open the config utility to change it to windowed mode, it never actually works! Regardless of whether 'start in windowed mode' is selected or not, it ALWAYS starts in full screen, and crashes when i alt+tab. Anyone know why this could be?!

PS. I initially had the screen res set to 1920 x 1080 to match my monitor, even defaulting all the settings to the original resolutions didnt work! Stupid game...

If it is graphics related look here: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Graphics

It could be OS related but I run XP so I don't know.

Tried that, i dont think it works with Steam version because it says 'Invalid language, or Final Fantasy XI is not installed'. I'm, guessing its not looking in the Steam file but i dont know how to change that lol!

I recently bought and downloaded the steam version so I could reactivate my characters.

Windower works just fine for it.

Do you have it installed on a different hard drive? You could try uninstalling and reinstalling.

I've had no problems and verify it can work. I use Win7.

I've used the third party windower on the Steam install. Didn't have to do any special configuration or anything. Not sure why you're having issues. =/
