If your party order is getting messed up somehow, you can open up the social pane in game and manually re-order the party to your liking.




Trying to figure out how to do this without using F1,F2 for my two characters at the moment cause I use this keyboard and f keys are hard to reach and would be to hard to do f1 and such for the Variable Keys since I'd have to move my hand over the entire left side to use them.

I can move around while holding/dragging right mouse to move the camera and everything works fairly smoothly. Sometimes a right click and drag still fails to register though and I am being particularly careful not to do those clicks over a UI element.

How about if you hold down a modifier key and try to move the mouse. ;)

I don't think you understand how ISBoxer and Variable Keystrokes work. You press your Assist key that you configured in the Wizard, and ISBoxer presses the right F-keys depending on which window you pressed it in.

EDIT: Clarification

Edit:

Got it working,

Assist is giving me issues somewhat (Tends to target my master and have to hit the assist button a few times every now and then for it to target the mob but its tolerable atm.)

Now I gotta get the Interact with Target working since am failing to do so atm.

Edit2:
Got Interact working for easy picking up. Getting a hang of this I think. xD

Just got all setup on my new computer i7 4770k 4.5ghz 16gb g.skill trident 2400 ddr3 and gtx670ftw and a samsung 840 pro 256gb SSD. Quite a significant upgrade from my other computer and I'm still feeling the same muddy camera/mouse movement. I'm feeling its not hardware related at this point since i'm idling at 25% cpu usage with 4 instances open.

Yup, FFXIV support is still a work in progress.

The main thing as far as this current input lag / choppiness goes, is your CPU Strategy. Use the CPU Strategy Wizard, from the Wizards menu, and change your CPU Strategy to "Select all CPUs with every window" -- the bottom one. It PROBABLY defaulted to Round-robin for you, and if you did not pick this CPU Strategy as MiRai pointed out a page or two back, then you're probably going to experience this lag. MiRai also mentioned early on that disabling the in-game FPS limiting can also help.

Neither of these suggestions are saying that your hardware is insufficient.

I made sure to double check the cpu strat on my new system before testing and I have done the ingame system settings suggested by Mirai. I'm just really happy this issue is taking a step forward :) Holding Mouse 1 and 2 to move forward while moving the camera is almost lag free. But any key combination in conjunction with mouse camera movement such as W (Forward) and Mouse 2 (camera movement) is a very touchy random situation. Sometimes it will be fairly smooth then take on a mind of its own and lock for a few seconds making me faceplant into a wall. The issue is compounded when a modifier (alt/shift/ctrl) is used and becomes an unplayable mess. Please don't take this as a complaint by any means I just wish to report this to the best of my ability since you guys seem to fix these problems so quickly.

Out of idle curiosity when the Phase 3 Beta ends...can you guys still continue FFXIV ARR development on ISBoxer? Or do you need to wait until the Phase 4 open beta starts (pretty much the real start of the game).

PS. I would never spell Mireyes name wrong. Evar.
