OK dual boxing was running fine. Brand new computer 1080ti vid card. I am getting times where I freeze up for a couple seconds on both toons at same time. It is like game is freezing up but then comes back. I run dual monitors and no dgvudu. Anyone else experiencing these issue and have a fix?

with a 1080Ti you really should be using dgvoodoo

Oh. I remember back before I got this system I used it with my alienware area 51 (dual 1080gtx's) but I put that in my sons room as he plays more games, I only play ffxi. I was unaware of the recommendation for a Ti.

Great now to figure out how to set this up again. Had a hard time last time as it would not display npc's or my toon just names. A friend helped me set it up.

Normally don't help people who reference their "player character" as a "toon" but it sounds like you're having network lag to me.

Try restarting. Had a similar issue after the most recent update (the freezing up for 3-7s). But corrected itself after a hook update.

Since it’s a new rig make sure you got legacy features and direct play enabled.

Keep in mind you can play the game off a modern day CPU without a dedicated GPU.

Ex: i5 8250u runs it just fine.

Edit: if you’re using Windower it might be a bad plugin or hook update. There was a couple this past weekend.

If you are using windower, try without it cause some plugins can cause this after an update.

Do you notice some sort of "chime" when this happens? That's the issue I'm having. Refocusing the window by Alt-Tabbing twice fixes it faster, or I can wait a few seconds. At first I thought this was because maybe some device was connecting to the computer, but I've tried turning every bluetooth/autoplay setting off that I can and it's still happening.

Also for the lulz if you aren't using a controller, disable it.

Could be Windows downloading an update. I just got hit w/ them on all three of my laptops. Windows Update running in the "background" can suck up a huge amount of resources.

You certainly aren't running out of vram or considering maxing out your gpu if you have a card that good, and nvidia's had pretty consistant driver issues with ffxi for the last 3-4 generations. Unless you really really need the default mouse cursor, it's a solid improvement to be using dgvoodoo(shift more load to your super nice gpu, uses more streamlined functions, and option of adding in resharper for a more noticable graphical improvement.. if you do have nvidia crashes it's likely to fix them).

If it were a 5 year old piece of ***card, there'd be more of a give and take since the added GPU load may not actually improve performance. That said, in almost all cases dgvoodoo is still worth having imo.
