Wonder how FFXI Will run on your computer? Find out here.

Postby mikeblah22 » 03/09/2003 @ 07:45 PM

There is a benchmark program that tests your system to show how it will handle the game. The address is posted below. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the left choice.

http://www.playonline.com/ff11win/wina2.html

Here is how to interpert your results:

1 to 1500- Bad
Game will be unplayable or won't work at all

1501 to 3000- Average
Game will play acceptably.

3001 to 4000- Good
Game will play well and look good. Woo hoo for you.

4001 to 11000- Excellent
No worries it, will be an awesome experience for you.



I got a 2475 on a real old system over 2 years. My specs were:
1.2 g AMD
128 ram
32 mb Radeon SDR

If I could get that score, everyone here should be able to play it.

This news plus the fact that the ps2 and pc are able to play with each other means that this could be the game of the site.

*wonders what the hell reaper and GD are thinking?*

Did you even read my post?

Both of you guys will be able to pump up the settings big time and make it run great. I don't understand your reactions.

GD yours is really great. People with Radeon 9700's were only getting like 5300 so don't kill yourself there.

4605.... not bad. I remember running it a while ago when I got this new PC and I scored closer to 5000. *shrugs* No biggie.

I'm seriously considering getting the Japanese PC version along with GD. He's gonna check on prices when he's over there. If it's in my budget, I'll be playing it too. I've been waiting for this game for sooooo long and am sick of waiting for a domestic release.

I figure if I could finish the Japanese ver of FF7 without any online help, I can navigate pretty well in this one. And from what I've seen, there are quite a few others that are from the US that play this game... so it's pretty well documented if I do need any help.

Well they should not have made the upper end of the spectrum so damn high. 11000??? Who can achieve that? Big Blue? I mean, I by no means own a powerhouse box, but it's pretty darned powerful for what I have invested. I never have to look at boxes for system requirements, I just buy and play with no worries.

If guys running Radeon 9700's are only scoring a few hundred more than me I guess I can relax a bit. My video card didn't cost $399 (it was half that), so if I can get near the same performance for half the price I guess I can feel good about that.

That seals it for me then. I was kinda hemming and hawing about spending all the cash (it's expensive, yo), but if we've got cool peeps on-board then I'm all for it.

I should either have enough in a couple of weeks... OR... I've been talking about it with Sera a bit... and there is a strong possibility that I may be getting it for the 'ol B-Day. Either way, I'm golden. :shades

basically if u score 3k + ur good to go . . . i know kids who are running it at around 2k - sure they dun run as smooth but hey they're still able to play =D if ur sitting at 4k + you really shouldn't have any worries. BTW this bench is sorda shady so sorda add a few points like 50-200 to your score, it's fairlly rugged bench heh. and your gfx will look better than the bench as well since you arn't able to adjust the FF XI settings to Deform smooth, bit map etc. (which makes a huuuge difference in the visuals)


BTW that lil thing the tarus are doing is known as the taru panic dance a k a /panic. lol it is perhaps THE BEST emote in the game lolol

yeah video card is probably THE most important item for running FF XI - Ram is nice as well to acompany the gfx card - and a broadband modem is nice for the patches and load times but doesn't really effect in-game play.

That's interesting.. I've got the same graphics card, and only 128 RAM. Though what's your processor speed? I've got a tasty 2.6 Gig, so that might've done it..

Cobbi, where did you get yer copy and what it cost ya?


I got my copy at Himeya.com. The actual game was 79 bucks, and shipping was 20. So around 99 total. It works out nicely, seeing as I had a website gig this week and got paid.
