    Japanese Client

    I'm learning Japanese, and I thought it would be a good idea to buy the Japanese client of FFXI. However, when I try to install FFXI, it gives me an error message, but it consists of nothing but question marks. Apparently install shield can't read Japanese. Is there anything I should know about installing the Japanese client or using it with my computer? Thanks!

    Go to control panel, look for region options or something, add Japanese. Youll need your windows CD to install it I think.

    Input Method Editor. Depending on your version of Windows, you might need the CD to copy files over. Here's a link that explains how to install the Japanese IME in WinXP.

    It's pretty straight forward. I do know that you will need to install the JP client into a seperate directory so that the registry doesn't get confused. Aside from that, you shouldn't have any problems. Check the Killing Ifrit forums for more info, that's where I looked. You can try doing some Google searches too, if that floats your boat. Good Luck!

    Helpful hint:

    Unless you're very fluent in Japanese, I don't recommend talking to anyone you don't know in Japanese.

    Well everything works fine, but I can't figure out how to use the menu that pops up when you're typing. Can anyone fill me in on how that works?

    Your text is green as you type it, that means its in a sort of "Edit Mode". You can press the space key to get kanji to come up for it. Once you press the enter key it becomes normal colored text and you can use the space bar normally.

    yeah, hit space bar and a little box will come up where you can select kanji and other characters, like ☆ and the russian letters and stuff.

    type きごう and hit space and a bunch of characters will come up, so you can make smileys :D

    ろしあ for russian letters
