If you have been struggling to get a beta key, and getting this maintenance page over and over and over.
You are doing something wrong, this actually is the default error page for any mistake you are making. to get rid of this and actuallysee the real thing try this:
1. Dont Just get back to the loginpage here https://secure.square-enix.com/account/app/svc/login?cont=ffxiv_beta_ap&ret=https%3A%2F%2Fsecure.square-enix.com%2Fenqt%2Fe%2FFF14OBTENTRYJP%2Fhtml&retl=ffxiv&retu=http%3A%2F%2Fentry.ffxiv.com%2F&lng=en&rgn=eu and try logging in. You have to go all the way back to the entry page here http://entry.ffxiv.com/ and start over every time.
2. Don’t try to follow some online guides to bypass the server errors and just get a key, they do not work anymore, just try every hour, and might get lucky.
3. Some have reported that disabling cookies in your browser may give you this page, try to enable them, or lower your internet security settings to the default.
Good luck, but currently I think no one is getting any Beta keys as the error remains “Applications for the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test have been temporarily suspended. Please wait until we are ready to accept new applications and then try again.”
I wanted to try the MMORPG MapleStory, I downloaded the client using the direct download link (not the downloader), when I tried to install the game later I got
[ERROR CODE= -40]
I googled around a bit to find that this is caused by a corrupt installation file. What we are doing here today, is to fix the installation without having to re download the entire client.
1. download Flashget (just google it) then install it
2. From the Import list under file, choose “import corrupted download” find the client installation of the game.
3. Let flashget think about it for a while, then it will ask you for the download URL, go back to the game website and get the link, in my case it was http://download3.nexon.net/maplestory/fullversion/MSSetupv88.exe
4. after thinking about it for a while Flashget will decide how much of the game is missing and needs to be redownloaded. Start the download and let it finish.
5. Install the game and have fun!
This method can be used to repair in corrupted direct download file not Just the MapleStory client discussed here
What is your favorite MMORPG?
