    POL broke

    So my POL viewer got done broke in the middle of logging in multiple characters. To the point it wont even let me file check or anything. Pretty sure the rest of the game is fine since the account that was already past that point logged in and played fine so was wondering if it was possible to just redownload and fix the viewer only

    And apparently not lol. Doing it from disk wont open and following instructions on POL page on downloading tells me I can't open the file without another program. Well finding my digital download I guess. RIP macros

    If you haven't gone nuclear on your stuff already, your macros can be found in a User folder in the XI directory, if I'm remembering right. SE tends to label characters with a mix of letters/numbers like ab1234 which would then be a folder with all their macro, AH, and filter settings as a bunch of individual files. But basically you could just copy paste that whole folder elsewhere until you're back up to speed.

    Seems I was able to just download POL from the digital download and that worked so everything else intact and minimal updates. No idea why my CD POL wouldn't work

    Your CD looked at the calendar and killed itself.

    Could depend on just how old the copy of PlayOnline from your CDs is, since Windows Vista (and 7, and later I assume) compatibility required a different version that they posted on the web site (still linked here). It's probably a safe assumption that the digital download already includes that version.
