hmm all i did was download the xiloader.exe from the mediafire link and pointed ashita to that in the kupo profile rather than the pol.exe that i was previously using located in the ashita bootmod directory. Seems to work ok or did i do something wrong?

edit ah i see there is two files one called xiloader.exe and one called pol.exe. The pol.exe one is better for ashita due to some addons so i think i will download that instead.

That will work for connecting to the game and most ashita addons. Some ashita addons look for pol.exe (I think) so if you want to be safe changing the loader to pol.exe and pointing your kupo profile to that will be best.

yeah, xiloader.exe/pol.exe doesn't matter for ashita as long as you point to a directory outside of the bootmod folder. But if everyone installs to this folder and uses pol.exe for ashita it will make troubleshooting a lot easier if everyone uses a consistent install method/structure.

I just want to add that for some windower users they may need to copy xiloader in to the windower install folder if copy to PlayOnlineViewer folder does not get you through the login.

Is running the game via just xiloader supported, ie no Ashita/Windower at all? My game sometimes crashes and I wanted reduce dependencies. I was able to login using this batch script, but it doesn't look like it's reading the configs I set in C:\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\ToolsUS\FINAL FANTASY XI Config.exe. The resolution comes out all 640/480.

I launched it with this:
pol.exe --server kupo.ddns.net --hairpin

It's the underlying loader that bypasses POL for private servers like this one. It's the little command-line interface where you enter the username/password. Both Ashita and Windower call the pol.exe which is basically a renamed xiloader.exe and that logs you into the server.
