Hey guys, I just got the all in one package for versions 1 through 4 in the mail today, but the patching process is more or less non-existent it seems. The time continues to increase and it has only gone up 2% in the past 30 minutes or so. My speedtest shows it's roughly 130Mbps download and 32Mbps upload, so it should be downloading at a better speed than this. It starts off saying it only needs 11 minutes or so, then begins increasing more and more as time goes on. Right now, I'm staring at the client and it has already jumped up to needing 523 minutes, and it's still increasing. Does it eventually normalize or am I doing something wrong on my end? I'm on the PC version, by the way. I already installed versions 1, 2, 3, and 4 earlier. I tried a VPN to see if that would help, but it didn't, unfortunately. It just continued to increase in time at a significant pace. Anyway! I guess it'll probably be best if I just leave it patching while I sleep overnight at this rate, huh? I was hoping to play today, but I don't suppose I can just enjoy offline mode while I patch it, lol. EDIT: Ah, sorry! I'm an idiot. I forgot to mention I'm living in North America. Not sure if that actually has an impact on the patching process, but I should've mentioned it in my original post. EDIT2: I might've jumped the gun, lol. Seems the speed is finally starting to level out and the time is now hovering between 115-120 minutes, and I'm currently at 12%. I seem to recall FFXIV doing something similar as well whenever a new expansion comes out. It spits out some insane estimated time (like 2,000+ minutes), then after a while, it actually lowers and displays a more reasonable time, heh. Sorry for the trouble! You can delete this if you want!
For the following I am using chrome so everything is translated for me on the page. There are other add-ons you can install for your browser that will translate. However, I am going through Chrome for sake of ease. Setting up a Square-Enix account: Obtaining the trial: Adding a Game Key: Setting up your Subscription: Claiming Item Codes: Confirmation of Service Ok! Here's something that has been asked a few times so I'm putting it here. IMPORTANT (teehee I said import) 1. To type in Japanese you need to install the Japanese IME for windows. This can be found in the control panel under keyboard. To have Japanese text displayed out of game like in the options application you must switch your computer's locale to Japanese. 2. If you get version 2 (the expansion). Check out my post right after the next on how to make sure you have it. I can't add any more pictures to the original post due to forum restrictions. 3. If the configuration tool is showing nothing but question marks for you. Change your date and time settings to Japanese format. Don't ask me why, but it's a flag for a few things in Windows. 4. Kid'sFree Play Time in JST (Japanese Standard Time): Monday - Friday: 4p.m. to 6 p.m Saturday and Sunday: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 5. I've tested windows 7,8,8.1 and 10 with DQX. I've not had a problem as of yet.
Hello everyone: I'm an international student in EU and a newcomer of this forum. I just started playing DQX last week right after it was released in China. I saw someone here is asking about the Chinese server, so I think maybe it's better to make a short introduction on it. DQX open beta was released in China on 8 Nov. 2016. The operator is SHANDA GAMES (SG). The version of DQX is based on 2.0. The character level cap is 60. There are 8 classes including Warrior, Priest, Mage, Martial Artist, Thief, Minstrel, Paladin and Ranger. DQX is a P2P game. Players have to buy access to the game. There are two access packages available: standard edition ($10) and collectorâ€™s edition ($30). The former include 30 days subscription time; the latter one has 90 days and a lot of in-game items. Official website: http://dq.sdo.com/ The collector package includes 20 Spirit Bombs (2 times EXP within 30mins), 50 lotteries and other appearance items. Whatâ€™s new? As I know, DQX was originally designed for consoles and then implanted into PC. So itâ€™s recommended to play with controllers. But since more players prefer playing with keyboard and mouse in China, a new control system was implemented by SG. Itâ€™s a little similar to WOW (but not exactly the same). You can input your command by clicking the number 1-9 directly in the battle. I can hardly say this system is good or not. Here is a video link. The first boss battle starts at 08:00. http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTgxNDcyMDU0OA==.html?from=s1.8-1-1.2&spm=a2h0k.8191407.0.0 The following part is my opinion on the Chinese server. Pros This game was released last week. You can see many many new players in the game. The distance between beginners and experienced players is quite short. The internet connection speed is acceptable. For instance, Iâ€™m in EU. With an internet accelerator, the lag on average is from 200-300. It doesnâ€™t significantly affect my playing. And there is no region-block. Non-Chinese telephone number is allowed to register for the game account (confirmed). International credit cards do not work anymore. SG cancelled this service (confirmed). Consï¼š There is no offline mode and no free trial. You have to pay before playing the game. No English patch. I have asked this question through the official website of DQX. But to be honest, I donâ€™t expect any positive reply. No English speaking players. i know there are many foreign players in Japanese server. In China, you can speak English in the game. But not so many people can understand you. That's all. If there is someone willing to play in the Chinese server, I may make a guide on how to register for a game account and buy the game. Of course, the best solution is to have a Chinese friend who has a Chinese debit card. Sorry for my poor English. I'm not a native speaker
