they were against windower program because it's a 3rd party program and you can use plugins to cheat. SE's windower is just FFXI in a windowed mode.

There's no need to download anything because it's part of the FFXI software (only 4+ years late). You need to go into the FFXI configuration utility and set it to start in windowed mode.

For years SE naively thought that forcing the game to run full screen would prevent 3rd party programs, but in the end only encouraged it (as seen by the huge number of Windower users alone). Finally they seem to have gotten the hint.

FYI, their windowed mode sucks. Stick with the 3rd party windower.

The SE version of the windower works.... but like everyone else said compaired to the 3rd party version out there already it fails hardcore. I have a question though, ever since the wotg update, whenever I try using the 3rd party windower it cuts off the chat box to where I cant see what Im typing. It worked fine before, I changed my screen settings to what they were before when it worked and still it cuts it off. Anyone else have this problem as well?

Are you by chance using both the windower *and* SE's windowed mode at the same time? Make sure SE's windowed mode isn't enabled when you use windower. Running both at the same time has strange side effects and shouldn't be done.

The windowed mode switch isn't in the game. I'ts in the configuration applet that you have to run separately. A previous reply mentioned how to find it.
