I'm having issues with a fresh install on a brand new computer. I'm not entirely sure how to proceed. I installed DGVoodoo to no avail.

If it's a fresh install it will be blank, you need to add your logins into it.

Are you using a laptop, did you install it from the website or the CDs.

Most likely you have not given it internet access or something.

Make sure you do not have not used a DirectDraw proxy.

Do you have DirectPlay enabled?

Windows 10 and above require it enabled for FFXI to work.

It's in: Windows Features/Legacy components/DirectPlay

You'll have to restart your computer.

This is the latest nvidia drivers and I suspect you are on Windows 7?

If so, revert your drivers back to 460.xx. Windows 7 support is flaky in latest drivers as it's now unsupported.
