PostSubject: Dynamis Settings   Sat Jul 26, 2008 5:07 pm

Hey everyone, I'm posting up all the different settings suggestions for semi-optimal preformance in Dynamis. As you all now know, Dynamis is super-lagged so we gotta crank down a whole lotta stuff, so look below for what I reccomend.

PC onlySettings

Disable your sound before logging into even POL. Go to Start > Program Files > Playonline > FFXI Config.

Then move to the sound tab, and uncheck the box marked "enable sound." Trust me, this is a HUGE improvement.

Basic Settings : for both PS2 and PC

Open your main menu > Config <

Set Auto-target during battle: OFF
Also inzone type /autotarget off

On-screen dmg display: LOG only
Shadows: OFF
Weather Effects: OFF
Character Models Displayed: <75%

Misc. 2
Clipping Plane: <75%
Footstep Effects: OFF

Turn all possible effects: OFF

In case you are unfamiliar how these work:
Character Models Displayed affects the number of PC and mobs displayed around your character at any time. The lower the bar, the fewer models you will see; they dissapear a shorter distance from you than normal.

Clipping plane defines where the background ends. For example, a smaller clipping plane means you cannot see as far in the distance. Play with this in a city to understand its full effect.

General Considerations

A while ago SE was having problems with people DCing in high-lag areas (Dynamis). This was especially problematic for PS2 users. We found out that using Window Type 2 seemed to limit the occurance of the freezing. Eventhough SE claims to have fixed the problem, we still reccomend all PS2 users use Window Type 2 in zone.
