Some of you on sylph might be wondering what this idiot running around shouting #savekleyman is doing... I apologize if I'm annoying or just seem stupid. My main character (kleyman) is stuck in some sort of glitch after being DC'd during a cutscene. SE has given me nothing but run around on this issue - I have tried everything on my end. All I'm hoping for is some of the FFXI community to lend a hand by liking my FFXI forum bug report, and/or liking retweeting #savekleyman in an attempt to gain someones attention at SE who cares, (probably a long shot).

Anyway, after 15 years of subscription fees and many hours into this character - I cant just let him go without fight.

Thank you

i got disconnected during the cutscene after completing the CoP Dawn fight. Now, when i log in my screen is black and i am unable to use the menu commands... I can however obtain my ab key, chat with LS and others. I also see send receive data and my name/hp/mp bar. My mouse cursor acts like my character is in the middle of screen, but screen is black. Its like im stuck in a cutscene that wont play. I have tried absolutely everything I cant think of... from logging in on different computers with ISPs to port forwarding and all that jazz.

I have another idea if this doesn't work you as well but involves some 3rd party screen-sharing

Do you have someone you trust with your account info? This used to happen to me on zoning every now and then, but having someone log me in on a different internet connection and move me, then /shutdown would fix it.

I recall this also happened to some people when zoning into adoulin for the first time back into 2013

Have you tried getting a GM involved via friends who can make the call for you?

If you can't use commands at all put in a GM call saying you are stuck, from a mule/alt.

They will send you to your home point (eventually).

Also, have you tried logging in vanilla?

Or, use tako, and clip to a zone line (wait 2 minutes after logging in to do so)

Yes i have tried different connections. Ive only managed to get 1 gm to even talk to me by having a LS mate trick him to ahow up in zone lol. He said i had to call tech support, and tech support tells me to call a GM and file bug report. Visious circle....

Ive never played around with any tools... I dont even know what vanilla is. My concern with clipling would be im in empyreal parodox zone and my screen is black, other than status showing and chat box.

Use autoinvite/autojoin in addon through windower. Even dead bodies can accept an invite through AJ/AI, if you're attempting the idea where you get a friend to zone in and d2 you out.

Packet may not get injected out, if you're stuck in cutscene state. Still worth a shot.

Have you gone to the GM option 'I can't move my character or log out of the game'? That should initiate an automatic position reset, which may fix it.

Sounds like the character is stuck in CS state at a specific spot that can't properly resume, not anything to do with ISP or routing. If that is the case, the only solutions available to the general public would require SE's assistance, as even if you can get into a party somehow you can't generally be acted on while inside that type of cutscene.

A possible workaround, though complicated, would be something like:

-Get someone to record the outgoing packets during the exact CS you are in.

-Memory edit the in-cs flag so that you can transmit outgoing status updates.

-Inject the packets sent during that cutscene, one at a time.

-Pray server responds by booting you out to altaieu and continuing the CS as it should.

I realize this is not likely feasible or something a vanilla(vanilla means: no third party tools, btw) player would like to do. I'm only mentioning it because it doesn't seem like the type of problem you can solve with any of these basic ideas.

This happened to me before, had my bf log in as me and he finished the cs, warped me out.

I can't believe (well I can sadly) that SE won't help, must he so aggravating:( hope you fix it soon!

Other thought is that if you've tried different connections but not different PCs, it's possible you have a corrupted DAT or something needed for the cutscene. Have you tried a different FFXI install, or at least running check files on your current one?

i know some cutscenes have trouble with windower controlled games, dont know if you play in windowed mode at all but you might want to try login just with the original game. That usually helps with corrupt cutscene endings.

You could always pay a server transfer fee and have them move your character that way, then just pay to move it back. Sucks to throw away cash for that though, but it might work.

No guarantee that would change whatever data is broken. The character state is likely just going to be dropped onto the new server.
