    Players will be able to transfer their character names from the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test to the official release. As long as the Worlds selected in the open beta test and the official release are the same, the character name used in the open beta test will be usable in the official release.

    If a different World is selected, the player will be unable to transfer the character name, and possibly unable to create a new character with that name.

    Please note that only the character's name can be transferred. Other data such as physical levels and items cannot be transferred.

    *Upon the transfer of player character name, both selection of the world and character name input need to be done properly. Please make sure to remember both the world you belonged to and the name of the character you used during the Open Beta Test.
    *With the character name that has been determined to be improper by Square Enix, the transfer may not be done.
    *After the open beta test has concluded, the character names still existing on the account will be transferrable.

    That's currently unknown, but more than likely it's just going to be a version update patch to change it from the P3 version to the OB client. Also ffr this thread is not the place for questions/discussion, just for the actual announcements. Please adhere to that going forward.

    Dev-na:

    In anticipation of the upcoming FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test, a number of new sections have been added to the game manual.

    - Means of Communication
    - The Friend List and the Blacklist

    The entire manual is now available for testers to view.

    * All game content covered within the manual is still under development.
    On Aug. 30, 2010 at approximately 4:20 (PDT), a new update for the FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version went live. The software client will begin updating automatically the next time you run the FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version.

    We would like to advise all testers to perform the update before the Open Beta Test commences to avoid any complications that may occur at a later time.
    Along with the start of open beta test on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2010 at 19:00 (PDT), threads under "Beta Test" and "Discussion" on FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test Site will become unavailable to those of you who have registered the registration code on your own to participate in FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
    Manual:
    Friend List
    The friend list allows players to see the login status of characters registered to that list and to send tells to them.
    Select Friend List under Social Lists on the main menu to display the friend list window.
    Select a character name from the list to send that character a tell or to delete the character from your list. Select Add to add a new character to your list.

    Blacklist
    The blacklist prevents messages from characters registered to the list from displaying in the log widget.
    Select Blacklist under Social Lists on the main menu to display the blacklist window.
    Select a character name from the list to delete that character from your list. Select Add to add a new character to your list.

    *You cannot register a character on your friend list to your blacklist. Likewise, you cannot register a character on your blacklist to your friend list.
