Default I'm thinking of re-installing FFXI

For no other reason than the .dats. Model viewer was more fun than the game itself, after all. Would it be wiser to just install the original game and not worry about the expansions?

Error in communication, excuse me. I have no desire to replay the game. I only want to install it to work the model viewer. As it stands, I can only access NPC models, and I want to access everything.

And Gulk, that's a great picture.

I say install them too. As a matter of fact, I did the very same thing yesterday, mostly just to have .dat modding material. :)

Well, I'm a bit worried about harddrive space. It'd be great if I could download only what I wanted and deleted the rest, but that doesn't seem like an option.

Well, if memory serves, the files that you really access are those in the ROM, ROM2, ROM3, and ROM 4 files.. You could try to copy those to your desktop (or wherever you wished), uninstall the game, then simply reroute the pathway that ModelViewer uses to find the files.

If that doesn't work, then installation of the whole game is needed.

I think your best bet if your account is deactivated/no desire to restart it is that you find someone who can copy the ROM folders for you. A lot of the new stuff looks decent, and won't be available on a vanilla install of the expansions.

Of course, you could wait a few weeks and get the new xpac, which would have everything up to that point. I think that would be the case, and I don't see why not.

EDIT!
ERRR rom folders total at 5.1gb oO Dunno how well they would compress...

I installed Playonline and FFXIv1. I got the basic stuff installed, and just downloaded everything else from this site (gotta love that Original .DAT Archive). I don't think there's any reason to uninstall what I have now, since I'd need it to use the model viewer anyway.
Is there a way to save space, though? My computer is starting to run slowly (though that may be something else entirely...).

I can't think of a good way to save a lot of space, if you delete everything except the ROMs you'll save... 1 gig at most I think?

If your machine is slowing down, it's probably due to other factors than just installing FFXI, yes :p
