    Hey aargwhy ;o I’ve managed to download and extract it myself. So, I am currently uploading it for you. Are you sure it is only part 23?

    After downloading the full client, you might want to download the patches for Final Fantasy XIV manually, because downloading them via the launcher might be a problem for some right now.

    Download the patches for the game client here:

    Did you download the patches as well? Copy everything into this folder:
    C:\Users\[yourusername]\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\patch

    Then start the launcher (ffxivboot.exe) and it should auto install everything.

    Btw, there is a new patch for Final Fantasy 14 that I am downloading/uploading right now.

    at moment i download this 23 files this is full client or not? i cann intall this later i have all 23 files or? and then i must download the patches?

    That is correct you have to download all 23 files in order to install the Final Fantasy 14 full game client. Should you get a CRC error, please also download the file “part 23″ (posted above).

    The recommended way to download the client is Jdownloader and a hotfile premium account (I downloaded the full client which is 4.5GB large in about 15 minutes)

    Then download all the patches from the link that I posted and copy them into the folder that I mentioned and launch ffxivboot.exe

    @Sindra & Martenius:

    I have noticed that myself now and figured it out. The patch D2010.09.05.2000 requires you to copy more files:

    1. Download D2010.09.05.2000

    2. Extract the files and copy them to the folders bca2a8ae and d96437e6 (C:\Users\[yourusername]\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\)

    Then start the client via ffxivboot.conf

    Thank you for this! However, HotFile is a very limited file host. Since your files are exactly 200 MB each, you could upload them to MediaFire, which lets you speed up the downloads with download managers, resume broken downloads and download more than one file at a time. I understand if you don’t want to go through the hassle of uploading them all again, but I, and many others, would appreciate it.

    In any case, you’ve saved me a lot of time messing with the default client, so thank you!

    I’m not sure what I did wrong but I downloaded all the client files via the links you posted and dropped them in the specified folder. However no matter what I do the updater will not recognize that they are there and keeps trying to download the 8.30.2000 patch. Any suggestions?

    Including the full game client?

    If so, look into the metainfo folder and download the patches via torrent (e.g. uTorrent).

    I have a problem, surprisingly. I downloaded all of the files and the patches. I installed the game. But i can’t but the patche in to the downloads\ffxiv-beta folder because it doesn’t exist. =/ What should i do, create the folder?

  21. Orange Community Approved Comment:
    sOliver said:

    Shinigami, yes if the folder does not exist, simply creat it, but double-check it (see below).

    It should exit.. make sure to replace [yourusername] with your actual username, example:
    C:\Users\[yourusername]\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\patch
