hey guys im a ff11 fanatic but i got a prob with hopefully some of you can help me with.
i recently moved and i got my pc formated ( no big woof right ?)
but the prob is my instal disc nr 1 of the normal ff11 got damaged so now i cannot instal it my question is ;
can anyone upload the disc so i can download it from you?

this isnt wares or anything like it because of the following reasons:
i have to pay with my credit card
i have the original
i cant use it for private servers because ...they plainly dont exist due to the pol (play online licence) servers + the direct link to square enix so you cannot change it to a private server i surfed the web to double check and i was right.

so please anyone please help me =(
(i only need the first instal cd for ff11 i checked the others and they are in working condition
cd 2 and 3 work find chains of promethia works fine aswell and well the other cd rise of zillart works just fine aswel ^^)

thx in forward guys

Asking someone to upload a copy of the Final Fantasy 11 install disk is considered illegal, and falls into the warez category.

Your best bet would be to contact Square Enix for a replacement. However, don't hold your breath, because they have some of the worst support out there.

If your copy came with a trial key, you can download the game from the FFXI website.

Whether they can use it or not makes no difference. There's nothing under the definition of warez that states that whatever it is that was ripped works properly.

You're reliable for the condition and care of your CD's once you buy them. If they get scratched or damaged then you have to deal with it. No offense, but if the CD worked before and came out of the package undamaged, then the company isn't going to care what your story is.

Asking someone to upload a copy of the Final Fantasy 11 installation disk is considered warez, thus against the forum AUP.

If your installation disk is damaged then you can buy another copy. You could however try running the disk on another computer to see if it's not just your computer and that it's actually the disk.

i already did that mc and believe me its the disk.
and warez in my country (the netherlands) is the following:
up or downloading files you do not own legaly.
if you donot own that and you did download it it should be removed from the hd within 24 hours.

so i dunno man listen im not asking for anyone to give me something illegal im asking for a backup :)

In this case, it's what Square-Enix says. By buying their product and using it, you agree to their Terms of Service. If it states that you cannot copy one of their products, and distribute it, then it's illegal and the copy would be a violation of the contract (Terms of Service).

take a picture of disc 1 with you showing a peace sign over it with a black plus sign on your pointer finger and a black minus sign on your middle finger. Then we'll truly know if you have actually bought the disk.

Edit: It's still an unauthorized copy, so it's still warez, however. Even if your countries laws don't consider it so, most others would. Hell, we won't allow fansub info here simply because of it's illegality in Japan.

Edit 2: Just checked their ToS page, and it actually says nothing about unauthorized duplication of the software. Ignore above edit maybe?

This thread is amusing...

"It's warez!"

You can't crack the installation, you can't play it without a valid CD-key, and you can't use an already used CD-key. Calling an MMO disc image wares is merely amusing at best.

http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/download/trial/index.html

Especially when the client is available for download in a trial pack. Square-Enix hosts the files for download themselves, stop accusing someone of trying to steal software that is pointless to steal.

And hey, this should definitely be in the Video Games section.

I have a copy, but I've misplaced the trial key paper. But the purpouse wasn't to give you a download link, it's to show that the client is publically available because it can't be pirated. Therefore, it's not wares to ask for an image of the CD.

As an avid and obsessive FFXI player, I'll be blunt.

Don't **** up your FFXI CDs again >.<

I'm glad we could amuse you. In VG, please leave your semantics at the door.

This is my section, and I like it clean. At the risk of sounding rude, there are better ways to inform the thread of this fact without trying to sound so smug about it. That is only going to serve to get people irritated, and that's not what anyone wants.

Nobody was really accusing anyone; it is simply our policy to not allow people to ask for any types of warez, which would include this. We don't allow any sort of trading of software to go on through here. Otherwise the board would be filled with iso requests and download links instead of discussion. MC is aware of how strictly we do this and--though he was rogue modding, technically, and should have just reported the post--he meant well, and was only trying to point out that this sort of thing is, 9.5 out of 10 times, against the rules.

Besides...If you need a key to download the version in the link you posted, then it's technically not "public" at all--it's only for people with the key.

(If you want to discuss this, PM me)

As for our poor friend: I suggest trying to find a friend who plays and borrow their disc. Short of buying it again that might be your only chance.
