I'd lose interest in going back. When I played FFXI for two years it was on PS2 the whole time. Now that I have a new PC that can easily run the game, dat mods would be the first thing I play with once the game is installed. If Square were to take that away then the only benefit of buying the PC version would be exchanging better graphics for space on my harddrive.

I wouldn't even notice to be honest. I don't play using any .dat swaps or third party tools in the slightest.

In fact the only change I'd ever really imagined I'd ever make would be to change Ridill and Joyeuse to looking like red & blue versions of the Sanguine Sword model so that I wouldn't be looking at a blue rapier and scimitar (two of my least favorite weapon models in that game for swords ironically).

Other than that I just never saw the point in .dat'ing because how could you brag about equipment looking super cool if you're the only one who can see it? That, and occasionally you'd see another person wearing the right .dat and suddenly they'd have it too, which would detract from it a bit I think.

I could live without it, unless programs like Wardrobe and the like wouldn't be use-able... then I'd probably go nuts. But otherwise, I'd still stick around.

Well I don't edit my dats(mostly)...just .bgws. It wouldn't stop me from playing, but it'd keep me far away from dynamis x.x (boring music, not so boring with ff12 Pharos music)

No .dat mods for me, so no change. I'd still be playing. If I wanna wank to my character, I'll log out and look at something in my FFXI collection.

yaaay wish everyone would do that X'D :roll:

but its kinda sad that one would only play a Online game for the hentai addons. its like.. paying 15bucks a month to look at porn while you kill monsters.

now if your in it for both and can deal with not having the mods.. thats good... But my self.. I disapprove of any dat changing.. I only change the music because sometimes the music won't play or I have better music to match for that battle or area.

and no its not the same as changing Character apperance =\

I play PS2, perfectly happy with no dats already. :3 If you don't have fun playing the game without modified .DATs, you probably shouldn't be playing at all. O.o
