Ffxiv Slow Speed

Posted on by

Mar 11, 2013  Final Fantasy XIV Pro, Database and Community. Why is Comcast the only internet provider in my area? How is $70/month acceptable for internet that drops service at least twice a month, and if you run speed clock on it you are never getting the speeds you are paying for ('Up to'). Dec 29, 2018 Providing its users with full adventure and customized characters, FFXIV users also faced trouble while downloading its patch files, or installing the game. Users generally report slow speed, ultimately followed by the download coming to a complete halt.

when I press the keyboard key to turn, it moves very slow, it looks like a turtle, I already set the camera's speed movement to the maximum, but nothing has changed, is buged?

I've been playing MMORPG for many years , in games like WoW, AA, WS, EQ and many others, and I've never seen anything like it before, surely this is not normal.

Someone know How increase the speed If turning to make the game more like any mmorpg?

Thanks.

    Use mouse control to turn camera. Either by holding right mouse button and turning, or setting action camera to on

    And change your left and right turn button/key press, to left and right strafe. Phocus 2.7.4 released for mac.

    Also for mouse controls if you feel like that's too slow or your action cam turning isn't as snappy as you'd like, check your dpi settings on your mouse. I have mine at 1350, I know a lot of people like at least at 800 depending on the game and settings.

  • Guys i talking about keyboard! not mouse! i dont wana use mouse to moviment in MMORPG! This is not 'Paladins, OverWatch or another FPS.

    Like other's MMORPG, GW2 already have key to move, but is too slow! need fix the option to increase the speed of camera.

    If you like play MMORPG with mouse, is good to you! but not everyone like this! In True the Bigest MMORPG today, adopt the classic keyboard moviment! aka WoW or FFXIV, so many people still like the good old classic style!

    Cached. Look, this is not change the way of you play with mouse, Just make who like play with keyboard more comfortable.

    Today many guys of WoW pause the subscription and test new games (because end of expancion), but without this fix in keyboard, will be hard someone come to GW2. And i sure ArenaNet are very welcome to new players (money).

    Something too easy to fix, just option to increase or decrease the camera moviment with keyboard, can make someone love or hate this game!

    I wana see whats DEV's have to say!

    I think like that too! use the mouse to move around is unacceptable to me, as well as to many that I know!
    I do not like FPS games because of this!
    And for small but multiple failures ignored by the DEV, GW2 until today has not become a great MMORPG in number of players!

  • Please DEVS fix the keyboard to make GW2 better for all! not just for few guys!

    I certainly won't say I disagree with your request, because I don't see any harm in it and I can see the benefit it would have for those who'd prefer to use the keyboard more, as opposed to mouse controls, but I never understood this type of reasoning where people say something along the lines of 'This isn't game X, so it doesn't need game X's control scheme'.

    Well, the same logic can be flipped right back to you, this isn't WoW or FFXIV, and it doesn't need to copy their control schemes either. The game's combat and movement system was clearly designed with mouse use in mind, and even if they did include an option to increase the turn speed for keyboard scrolling, it will never be the optimal control scheme, not by a long shot.

    In the end, the current setup might be an intentional design in order to promote the use of the mouse when it comes to camera scrolling. Asking for a change, even if you present what you feel is a good argument for one, doesn't mean you will get it, especially if it goes against the intended design.

  • Turning with A and D isn't optimal at all. I can't imagine how it must be if you cripple yourself so much only be cause you 'hate' FPS games..

  • I also have no issue with your request, but what you must realise is this game isn't like WoW. The combat is much more active and mouse movement plays a huge role.
    Think of it like a console game and having to control camera with one joy stick and movement with the other.
    You wouldn't expect to just eliminate the camera control.

    You will struggle in many aspects of the game if you don't use mouse for camera.
    Keyboard, even with a faster turning speed, can't compete.

    Rather than wanting the game to be something different than it is, why don't you practice playing it the way it's design? You might learn to love it.

  • This isn't a bug, so there's nothing to be 'fixed'. If you want to use the keyboard for turning, that's fine (I use it sometimes, too). But you're going to have to accept that doing so will be slower than turning with the mouse because that's just how THIS game is.

  • I totally agree with the OP, I'm an old school keyboarder and do not use the mouse to move. Turning by keyboard is VERY slow in this game, but there is nothing to be done about it, you love it or leave it. Along the same lines are the UI skillbars that cannot be moved or reconfigured, which really sucks as well for an MMO.

    Get on your springer or skimmer mount, and you'll turn faster via the keyboard than you believed was possible in the laws of physics.

    But seriously, one alternative I use is to bind the turn-180° action to a convenient key, so that I can at least spin around fast (again, not while mounted, when mounted the key just spins the camera).

    You need to press the right mouse button to lock the camera direction or else you will be moving uncontrolably with WASD.

    Like other's MMORPG, GW2 already have key to move, but is too slow! need fix the option to increase the speed of camera.

    I am confused. What is slow now, the camera movement or your character's movement? The latter might be an overheating issue OR you have pressed the WALK KEY, which lets your character walk instead of run. Look up your keyboard settings and see which key walking is bound to so you can toggle it back to running.

When one talks about the most popular video game franchises of all times, Final Fantasy is one of the first ones to come to mind. However, with the franchise making a transition into the world of MMORPGs with Final Fantasy XIV, things did not work out quite well. This is due to the number of issues the game featured which included the infamous Final Fantasy XIV lag.

Final Fantasy XIV Lag

The lag issue did not stop the game from becoming one of the most played online games. And now, with thousands of players logging in on a daily basis, the problem has only escalated. Therefore, players who are just starting off, Final Fantasy XIV lag is what prevents them from continuing on. If you are one who wishes to get rid of this problem, we would advise you to check out our detailed FFXIV lag guide.

However, since lag is linked to abnormalities in both the network and the PC itself, let us kick things off with the most basic workarounds. And I understand some of you might not consider this as a workaround but this is one of the most common causes of coming across lag in the game. Hence dealing with this is of the utmost importance. We are talking about the game’s system requirements.

Final Fantasy XIV System Requirements

If one fails to meet the game’s minimum requirements, lag is imminent. This is because the game’s requirements may exceed that of your computer, which means your PC is not able to run the game.

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista or later
  • Processor: 2GHz Dual Core CPU
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT VRAM 512MB or later / ATI Radeon HD 2600XT VRAM 512MB or later
  • Storage: 37 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista or later
  • Processor: 2.4GHz quad-core CPU
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 450 / AMD Radeon HD 5750 with 512MB
  • Storage: 40 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

Furthermore, meeting just the minimum requirements can also cause FFXIV lag. This is due to your PC just barely meeting the game’s requirements, which comes with instances of FPS drops, lag and sometimes even stuttering. So, before you head on to the more serious workarounds, it is advised you check and see if your PC is able to cope up with the requirements of the game.

FFXIV Lag Spikes

If your PC is meeting the above-mentioned requirements and you are still a victim of the pesky FFXIV lag, then the question arises: how to fix FFXIV lag? Well, there are other options you can try that can help optimize your PC, which in turn will help you to run the game better. These workarounds can range from limiting background applications to optimizing your PC for performance rather than quality.

As minor as these workarounds might seem, we guarantee the effects of them will be quite substantial. Hence, without wasting any more of your time, here is a list of the possible workarounds you can apply to get better performance in Final Fantasy XIV.

  • Make sure all of the drivers on your computer are up-to-date
  • Close any background application which is either using up your internet or is using up a lot of your system’s space
  • Scan and defrag all of the drivers, especially the one where FFXIV is located
  • Switch “Power Options” to “High”
  • Adjust Windows for “Best Performance” rather than quality
  • Run FFXIV as Admin
  • Add FFXIV to “High Priority” from the Task Manager
  • Check if VPN is active. If so, then disable it for the time you are playing the game
  • Disable Windows Defender (temporarily)
  • Disable Firewall (temporarily)
  • Check Anti-virus settings for any blockages or network restrictions

Even after these workarounds, if you are experiencing FFXIV lag, then we have both good and bad news. Good news is that your PC is fine and is able to run the game smoothly. However, the bad news is that your network connection is what is causing you to suffer from Final Fantasy XIV lag.
