I'm having problems sending messages (i.e. /befriend, etc.) So I was thinking I should uninstall everything, and then reinstall. I'm a little hesitant though. Am I going to loose anything in game? Also, I have only found uninstall for POL so far. I put disc 1 in for FF and it just gave me the options to install, not install. Any help would be great. Thanks

A Reinstall may work. You need to totally remove POL and FFXI though. To do this goto Control Panel and click Add & Remove Programs.

You can usually find Control Panel in the Start Menu. You will not lose anything ingame, except possibly your macros.

All of your macros will be lost, plus you'll have to sit while you download and install *every* update SE has made. However, nothing about your character (level, items, etc.) will be affected. The only other thing you *might* lose that I can think of would be the people on your friend list. I am unsure if that's kept by SE or on your HDD.

It's stored by SE. Only your Private Messages are stored by you, they are deleted off the server once you recieve them.

You can save your macros.

Just backup [whereever]\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\USER and you'll have your macros, and shit like sort orders @ Auction House.

I had this same problem before, but i didn't have to do a complete uninstall/re-install. I can't remember what fiel i had to remove/re-install, but if you contact customer support describing your problem, they should be able to tell you how to fix it.
