    I woulda made this post when I saw it a few days ago but it's a retarded update and I'm sure everyone here already has the game.

    And to answer your question new expansions usually have old updates.

    i actually love this idea

    who the fuck wants to have to install, what is it 8 discs, after you format. (POL 1, FFXI+ROZ 4, COP 2, TOA 1???)

    Sure the time to install might take just as long but its only one disc... no fucking switching discs back and forth

    AMEN SE THX THE LORDZ U DID THIS FOR ME

    Also, dvd drives usually read faster than cd drives.

    Those are standard on most new computers within the past few years anyhow.

    Only took me bout 2, maybe 2 and a half hours to update from a clean install of FFXI (from the Vana'diel collection DVD) + ToAU. I would not be suprised to see the DVD having most of the current updates on it.

    It is not such a bad idea, assuming SE includes the latest version of everything onto one DVD. The time saving on patching and shelf space could be attractive.

    I will give SE thumb up if they let us download the DVD (without CD keys) via BT for free.

    EDIT: Fixed "with CD keys" to "without CD keys".

    The old DVD contained all of the updates up to a certain point if I recall correctly.

    I got the last one and I'll probably spend the $30 to get this one too. I reformat often enough that it is really nice having it all on one disc.

    The only thing that sucks is that they didn't integrate it all in to 1 installer ... you still have to go through the steps of installing POL viewer, then installing FFXI, then RoZ, etc. Maybe they'll change it this time so you go through one set of install steps then can walk away for 30 minutes or whatever.

    Don't get your hopes up.
