Does anyone know what is exactly meant by "open" beta in this case?

You had to have applied at some point, I believe it was.

Not having anything to do with Ivalice the judge's are probably just the GM model.

That or they spawn and attack you if you've been playing longer than 45 minutes :P

Looks like the judges are a part of the Garlean Empire. I'll let you guys know what server we will be playing on once I find out myself.

Open beta starts tonight! Server info to be forthcoming. Nab your codes at 7pm PST and update your clients if you haven't already. We will be on vent all night from 7pm PST. Hope to see some of you online.

spammed...

Host Name: cesium.typefrag.com
Port Number: 27152
Password: eorzea

Also, if you're going to be using vent please try to do some vent normalization.
Vent normalization makes every bodies voice the exact same volume. In essence, you won't blow your ear's out or have difficulty hearing people.
____________________
Her...e's how:

- Go to Setup
- Enable Direct Sound
- Select the SFX Button
- Select Compressor and click Add.
- Under Compressor Properties use the following settings
- Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be. (I use 15)
- Attack = 0.01
- Release = Around 500
- Threshold = Around -30
- Ratio = 100
- Pre delay = 4.0

Thanks!

Got my own 25 slot voice server, so you won't see me on there I'm afraid, especially since I do voicechat over my Mac and your server's not set up for Speex.  I couldn't talk on your server the one day I tried.

On the other hand, if some of you feel like jumping on mine, here are the details:

Server: synbios.murmur.nfoservers.com
Port: 4820
Password: wat

You need to download Mumble if you want to jump on there though.  Vent won't work, which is OK since it sucks in comparison (just switched last night).  Mumble does normalization by default.

Parn's right about mumble, it's way better operated than ventrilo or teamspeak. For audiophiles, you can tweak the senisitivity of your mic to very precise measurements and actually see them, rather than just assume. The quality for bluetooth users is vastly better as well (so far, I've only experienced one bluettoth headset user as of now). Strongly urge anyone here to test mumble out for themselves, get a little taste of it. You'll like it better, I assure you.

As for FFXIV, I'll be waiting for the retail release before I make any decisions on whether to buy an extravagant new PC or frankenstein my old one to run it. As of now, it still seems to lukewarm to be worth playing. If I'm gonna pay for this game monthly, I wanna know that my horrendously poor lifestyle of gaming daily will be rewarded, rather than penalized, as I prefer only melee classes for most RPGs and leveling magic isn't in my interest right now, nor is crafting. But like I said, I'll wait and see how it all pans out.

TASTY!

Ill check out Mumble, and I swapped the server over to Speex- feel free to test it - will test out the sound quality tonight. We used it on WoW since some people were playing on the Mac.

I can't even log in the account management system to get my key. I type in my username and password, the page reloads, I don't get any incorrect password/username message and my password is still in the box. What the fuck? If I type random crap I do get an usual error message so I really assume it's the right password.

God dammit, squeenix.
