So ! Today I logged in on I’silmë who is one of my alt, only to discover that everything had been reset :
As I had to fix it and I believe it might be annoying for anybody who has to face this sort of problem or just want to have the same interface on their alt and on their main, here is a little tutorial.
STEP 1 : Backup everything.
Click on “config’ on the launcher.
Click on “Back Up” .
Select again “Backup” and save your file with the date.
STEP 2 : Track your main character folder.
It could seem easy at first as you might think that 1 character = 1 folder, but NOPE. It seems that there are several folders for each of your characters and every time you create a character, even if you delete it 5mn after, the game creates its folder to never delete it. So here is my FFXIV folder :D
TADAAAAAA~ ! Well, time to stop to panic and to actually find Ilwe’ran’s folder in the middle of that mess.
Open the game configuration folder : Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn
On top right of your folder, open the research and click on “Last modified” then select “Earlier this week”
Right click on any .log file then select “Open file location”.
If you didn’t play with many character you should have found your main character’s folder. On my side it wasn’t that hard as I don’t play so many character and there were 457 log files in the folder. No way that I have that many with any other of my characters XD .
STEP 3 : Make sure that this folder is your main character’s one.
Easy step there : Select ANY other folder and place them in a new backup folder. I named mine = FFXIV-CHR = .
You don’t need to restart the game here, simply log off your character then log in again :
If your interface is still the same : CONGRATULATION ! You found your main character folder.
If your interface isn’t the same : NO PANIC ! You should now have a new folder with your character’s ID, you only have to fetch the folder with the same ID in the folder you dropped all the other character’s folder and simply drop it back in your FFXIV folder.
In any case : WRITE SOMEWHERE THAT THIS FOLDER IS YOUR MAIN CHARACTER ONE. Who knows, that might be useful at time !
STEP 4 : Sharing your main character’s interface, Macros, Keybind, etc. With another.
Now that you know which folder is the one interesting you, you can easily use it as a base to copy your informations everywhere.
Do NOT drop back your character’s folders in FFXIV’s folder. Instead, log in with the character you want to have the same interface as your main character. If you have a queue to log in, drop the queue right away : The character’s folder is already created !
Copy from your main character’s folder every single file aside the log folder, then paste everything on the brand new folder.
Select yes when Windows will ask you if you want to replace the old files by the new ones.
TADAAAAAA~ ! It’s now similar to your main character’s interface and all !
STEP 5 : Fixing the gears sets !
Because yes, the problems with this method is EVERYTHING is copied from your main character to your alt. Gear sets included which will might make you scream for a minute or two. But ! There is a solution ;) !
Once again, log off your character.
Find the folder which ID’s is the same as your alt in between the old folders stored in
= FFXIV-CHR = .
Inside the folder, find the file : GEARSET.DAT , copy it and past in in your new folder.
If this didn’t work, quit the game, repeat the copy / paste, this should fix the problem.
Be happy and don’t forget to reblog this ! It might be useful to someone else some day !!!
she is one of the sweetest people to come into my life and support me! time and time again they prove to be patient and understanding despite all their own hardships. ilwe is also an amazing character they own and has grown into such an interesting and unique character along side carina (
@geisterfuchs) bless their little family
and bless nightmaze the mun for being great. thank you for supporting me!
As for Heavensward, there is always 3 sets of 2 nodes with the same items to gather. If you’re new to the area or simply want to never lose time looking for where the next nodes are, you can use the Waymarks to place them next to the gathering nods. Waymarks will both show on the general map and mini map, allowing you to save time and to avoid to get lost ♥ !
My work for @eorzean-art-exchange V-day art exchange event and you won’t guess who did I get as my partner
I am really bad with holiday themed ‘inspiration’ but as I always loved the little story you created for how Ilwe got Selene and she is actually his familiar who helped him survive the aether weighted birthplace.
I really wanted to illustrate the moment when he first creating her.
So my work goes for @nightmazing the moment when they bond. Hope you enjoy it hun ! :>
(yes I was allowed to upload on my main blog like with the xmas event!)
Hello! I love your tutorials and was hoping maybe you have some tricks for getting /changepose to work in gpose after having used an emote? I can't seem to "erase" what emote I did last! :(
I got you Anon because it’s something I wondered for some time but there IS a way to reset the previous emote ! Be aware that this is a hard thing to do that will need you to train a lot though. Are you ready to hear the secret ? Are you really ready ?
Use /sit, then stand, it will reset the last emote you did.
PS : Don’t forget that you can also add expression to your emote (and maybe skills ? I didn’t try it yet), just by doing the expression after the emote ♥ !
