Final Fantasy XI (ファイナルファンタジーXI, Fainaru Fantajī Irebun), also known as Final Fantasy XI Online, is a MMORPG developed and published by Square (later Square Enix) as part of the Final Fantasy series. It was released in Japan on Sony's PlayStation 2 on May 16, 2002, and was released for Microsoft's Windows-based personal computers in November 2002. The PC version was released in North America on October 28, 2003, and the PlayStation 2 version on March 23, 2004. In Europe, only the Windows version was released, on September 17, 2004. An Xbox 360 version was released worldwide in April 2006 for all regions, as the system's first MMORPG and the first cross-platform MMORPG. All versions require a monthly subscription to the game and the Xbox 360 version does not require an Xbox Live Gold account to play

Personal Notes:
My Online Role Playing game of choice. The game is quite a lot easier than it was in the early 2000s mind you. You can find sometimes still on Cerberus as Waves.

If You are are on 10.5 or 10.6 - use CXE
If You are 10.7 or 10.8 - use Wineskin - Snow Leo people can use Wineskin as well.

The story is set in the fantasy world of Vana'diel, where player-created avatars can both compete and cooperate in a variety of objectives to develop an assortment of jobs, skills, and in-game item rewards. Players can also undertake an array of quests and progress through the in-game hierarchy and thus though the major plot of the game. Since its debut in 2002, four expansion packs have also been released, adding numerous areas, quests, and item rewards to the Final Fantasy XI world.

What's New in Version CXE Carbon / Wineskin (See full changelog)

  • 1.0 - First upload
  • 1.1 - Minor tweaks and reupload.
  • 1.2 - Added Wineskin version for compatibility with Mac OS X Mountain Lion
  • 1.3 - changed from Final Fantasy XI: Online Ultimate Collection Abyssea Edition to Final Fantasy XI Ultimate Collection Seekers Edition also added FFXI content patched to April 24th 2013

This works as of the February 2012 update.
Quick update - this Port broke with the March 26th update - but is now fixed as of the April 3rd update - - thanks to jeffreychoo for the updates.
If I download this, am I required to pay a subscription fee?
The game has a monthly subscription yes.  You can play on private servers.  You can also get a free 30 day trial.
Re-uploaded today - the game is working as of August 5th 2012 - Compatible with the July 23rd update.

Likely not working (though untested) with Mountain Lion - Mountain Lion upload on request only via Private Message.
Updated today to add a Wineskin copy which *should* - allow users to play on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion - though it has not been tested by myself as I do not have 10.8 - requested by user m12500

Tested today and the Game is working on 10.6 Snow Leo with both the CXE / Wineskin ports.
Minor tweaks made to fix some issue on new upload.  Currently set game to run in Windowed mode to change - you can edit the registry:

The registry keys are listed http://wiki.ffxiclop...g/wiki/Graphics
(Mainly, just setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PlayOnlineUS\SquareEnix\FinalFantasyXI\0034 to 1, would switch it to windowed, 0 would be full screen.)
Hey waves, I downloaded and completed the installation of FFXI using Wineskin and 7zip.  I even updated the game (waited a whole bloomin' day for it to update lol) and everything was fine and dandy, until wanting to START the game.  I get an error straight away that says "the program has encountered a serious error and needs to close"

This was the error I got below.  Im running Mountain Lion, and followed every step to the dot.


My Macintosh is currently a paper weight so I can really trouble shoot except off the top of my head right now.

So right click the app - what size is it - ie how many gigs?

What version of Wineskin is it? - I see the engine is 1.4.1.

Are you on 10.8.2? - or something else?
1. So, right clicking and CMD-i shows me its - 5.72GB in size

2. Ok so Ive got wrapper version wineskin 2.5.8, Engine WS9Wine 1.4.1

3. I am on 10.8.2
All right so it is the first issue. The game should be about 13 gigs. I am not sure what you did not install.
Ok, so basically Ive followed the steps as above, but when trying to get a Playonline ID, I had to register a trial version which Ive upgraded to a full payable service.

What Im attempting right now is uninstalling the whole thing, and starting again from the disc image.  Its currently telling me that it has 31146 files to download, which looks like its gonna take all night.

Will update you on what happens after this.  Not too optimistic as this is the same amount of files I had to download last time.
All right - it should work. Rated platinum on wine app

Few have issues.

Let me know.
Hey Waves,

Thanks for this. Got super excited when I got to the "Play Now" screen in POL, but like the previous poster, FFXI crashes when it goes to launch the game.

Running on Mac OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion), Wineskin 2.5.9 with engine WS9Wine 1.5.25.

Downloaded the port in 3 parts, unzipped into wavesffxiw.dmg, double-clicked the dmg to mount, dragged FFXI to the applications folder.

It ran POL just fine through the updates, but crashes when you hit Play Now:


Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.  Thanks man.
How do you use a gamepad?
