    Windower, No windower, PS2 or Xbox? what do you play on?

    So yesterday i was kinda surprised about this:

    ME: http://www.windower.net >.>
    LSmate: huh?
    ME: to play and browse at the same time
    LSmate: is it SE software
    ME: nope
    LSmate: 3rd party, no thanks
    ME: np

    So... i was under the impression most people use windower, at least most of BG except those playing on PS2, Xbox. In short im courious of how many people in BG use windower.

    There's just too much downtime in FF that without Windower, I would have to read a book or pay attention to whatever is on TV.

    I'd only play without windower if I had two monitors.

    thing that sucks about that, if you switch highlight to the other monitor, your ffxi STILL gives you lost fullscreen mode error. So having two monitors does nothing haha.

    honestly, if your in an endgame LS and a person doesnt have windower and are on a PC to access possible needed information on the LS boards or maps and they dont have a computer, Im not going to feel very comfortable about them. I can understand PS2/Xbox players, but if you can have the info, why not

    No windower = not playing on PC. Especially true since I sometimes dual box a mule on another window. I *might* consider playing the 360 version to free up my PC but I'd probably just quit.s

    While I still played, I was on the PS2... even though I had the PC version as well for when I needed it.

    My laptop was always around though, so getting maps and information and stuff like that wasn't a problem.

    I would consider ffxi.stratics.com a website that doesn't align itself to one particular group, idea; pretty much your typical Allakhazam website. Their front page poll ask the question on whether or not you use windower.

    Yes 1343 92.9%

    No 102 7.1%

    I would say (whether or not the results were tampered with) that poll directly reflects an obvious incline twoards a more windowed Final Fantasy XI.

    What Sonomaa said.

    An HNMls cannot operate without windower, plain and simple. Unless of course they have 10000 pieces of paper next to them printed out in the offtime they are not ingame. I would still be getting lost on the way to Ulli, would never craft, and coffer hunting would be a fucking nightmare. Especially with salvage now out and all the info compiled into those threads...you NEED windower or a computer next to you

    I use it, and mostly for the reasons already said. There is way too much downtime to stare at my mog house in full screen or an HNM camp staring at nothing for hours and hours.

    I can't imagine playing FFXI without windower. I might be able to play without the plugins... I think.

    Oh yeh, I'd quit FFXI if SE were to ban people for using windower. (In an active way)

    Mmos are made for PC imo. There are soooo many benefits and you're able to do 10 things at once.

    QFT. There's just to many good things that come with it to let go.

    How else are you supposed to look at porn and play ffxi? Though I do remember waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day when FFXI was able to be Windowed (this is like when it first came out, you know when RNG/THFs were the rage, stupid strategy guide) through "properties", could be wrong though. Anyhow, like they (or I) say, "Dick in one hand, mouse in the other

    I think that is why they haven't actively banned everyone using a windower, might cause a huge loss in money for them (from this game anyways).

    I play on PS2 until I can invest in a computer that can run FFXI. I have a computer on the other side of the room for "emergency" reference but I do have a thick binder filled with FFXI stuff I printed. If I could play on PC I'd definitely use windower.

    Is a controller as efficient as a keyboard when it comes down to macros? I use 2/3 macro sets during 1 fight and I'm able to switch real fast. One of the reasons I can't imagine playing FFXI with a controller.
