[Windows Only]

The option "Run in Windowed Mode" has been added to the "General" tab of the FINAL FANTASY XI Config Tool. Checking this box and saving the new settings will run the game in windowed mode the next time you start FINAL FANTASY XI.


*When checking this box, the message "You may experience lower frame rates or other problems depending on your computer's specifications. Uncheck the box and use full screen mode to improve performance." will be displayed. To switch to windowed mode, you will be required to select "Yes" from the subsequent options provided.
**Using the default settings while in windowed mode may cause problems with the game screen.
The following settings are suggested if any problems are encountered in windowed mode.

These settings are a general example, and the optimal values may differ depending on the graphic card, etc. being employed.


Warnings for Windowed Mode

After changing the settings, the size of the window will be displayed under "Overlay Graphics Resolution" on the "Screen Size" tab. While in windowed mode, it is possible to alter the window size by clicking and dragging on the edge of the window with the mouse. Press and hold the Shift key to maintain the same vertical and horizontal proportions. Right-click on the title bar and select "Default Size" to return the window to the default window size setting.

Even in the case where the maximum value for the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" is set to the same value as the full screen display, the window will be slightly smaller than the full screen.

It is not possible to take screenshots in windowed mode by pressing the Alt key and the Print Screen key.

The brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc. of windowed mode will differ slightly from full screen mode.

You may lose your connection and be returned to PlayOnline when performing the following actions while FINAL FANTASY XI is running:
