One Click NasomiXI Installer

Thanks to the new One Click NasomiXI Installer, installation is easier than ever!

NasomiXI Installer Instructions

  • The installer must be run as administrator. It will prompt you to do so if you don't.
  • It will prompt you to enter a drive letter for your installation. If you move the folder later, the game won't work.
    • If you need to change the drive after you've installed the game, it's recommended that you just run the installer again.
  • Roughly 1-5 minutes into the install a window will pop up and start copying files. That's the core install.
  • After that's complete, it will patch some files, register some DLL's, update the registry, and place a config and launcher file on your desktop.
  • The last part will be to launch Microsoft VC++ Runtime 2015, if you have it already you can click cancel.
  • You're done! Click the launcher on your desktop and it'll open and show your default options.

If you need help configuring the launcher, click Configuring the Launcher

Troubleshooting Help

  • If you have kaspersky antivirus software, it WILL delete the launcher! You must make an exception for C:\NasomiXI\ or disable it.
  • If you have any other antivirus software, it MAY delete ashita files! If it does, recover those files, then make an exception for C:\NasomiXI\.
  • To be on the safe side, please always use the Run As Administrator option to run any program.
  • The Retail FFXI installation suggested that you turn off your virus scanner prior to installing the game This may not be a bad idea if you are having problems with your installation.
  • If you have a NON English OS, you may run into some difficulty using this installer. Please visit NasChat for support with installing.

Manual Installation

*This method is only for those with issues running the Nasomi installer.

1. Download the NasomiXI Installer.

2. Extract the zip (..\NasomiXI.v18\data\ from the data folder in the installer to your C drive so that you have a directory that looks like C:\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\.. etc. C:\NasomiXI\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\.. will not work.

While the files move, why not register an account? You will need one to play.

3. Open the ..\NasomiXI.v18\Install.bat file as a text file.

4. Run a find+replace on the Install.bat file to replace all instances of %drive% with C.

5. Delete all lines in the file other than the ones started with regsvr32. Save the file somewhere, as a .bat, and run it after the file transfer is done. A cmd window should open for a short time and then close.

6. Run the appropriate registry file found in the installer. This means ..\NasomiXI.v18\data\ffxi64BIT.reg if on a 64 bit OS, or ..\NasomiXI.v18\data\ffxi32BIT.reg if on 32 bit.

7. Install the VC++ Redistributable package found at ..\NasomiXI.v18\data\VS2015.exe.

8. (Windows 8, 10) Enable DirectPlay: press WindowsKey+X at the same time, then select Programs and Features. In the top left, there is a button that says Turn Windows features on or off. Find Legacy Components in the window that shows up and make sure the checkbox next to DirectPlay is enabled.

9. You should now be able to launch the game using ashita by navigating to C:\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\Ashita\ and opening Ashita. If you cannot launch Ashita, check the Launching on XP section below.

Launching on XP

Windows XP won't run Ashita, the launcher Nasomi uses. To launch on XP, navigate to C:\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\Ashita\ffxi-bootmod\ and right click boot.exe and create a shortcut. Right click your shortcut and select "Properties". In the Target section, add --server --hairpin to the end so that the entire Target looks like C:\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\Ashita\ffxi-bootmod\boot.exe --server --hairpin. Use this shortcut to run the game.

Transferring from another server

Note: There are no character transfers. This is just a way of getting onto Nasomi quickly if you already have the game ready for connecting to private servers using the standard pol.exe/boot.exe. If you have any doubt, start the download of the nas installer while you attempt the rest of these instructions.

  • Keep in mind that using the game files from another server may result in being on the wrong game version. This means that you may have mismatched text ids misplaced NPCs, or animation syncing issues with terrain such as airships or bridges. It is highly recommended to just use the install method above.
    • Navigate to your Ashita folder.
    • Launch Ashita and edit your configuration of choice.
    • Change the --server portion to read "--server" instead of "--server <your old server>". Do not remove the --hairpin portion.
    • Launch the game!
      • If the login prompt loops and doesn't do anything else, this is because your server used a proprietary .exe that is not compatible with any other server. Find an original ashita pol.exe/boot.exe or use the nas installer. You could use the pol.exe/boot.exe found in the nas installer, but if you're downloading it already anyway you may as well just run the nas installer.

Transferring Macros and Configs

Simply copy the USER folder from your previous installation to the new one. The USER folder can be found in "C:\NasomiXI\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\".

Transferring Macros and Configs from another server

Macros are stored in your USER folder, in folders that are named according to your SERVER SPECIFIC character ID. In order to transfer your macros, you need to figure out which folder corresponds to which character for both servers. For the server you are transferring to, this should be easy: upon making your character, keep track of what folder is made in your USER folder. If the folder is not created on character creation, it will be after logging out of that character.

You can then use the process of elimination replacing the contents of your new character's folder with the contents of one of the folders in your old USER folder, one by one.

Installation on Linux using WINE

FFXI (and Nasomi by extension) run perfectly under WINE. However, Ashita will not run in WINE, so you will be playing with no plugins or addons.

0. Install WINE by running something like sudo apt install wine or sudo dnf install wine, or brew install wine on Mac.

1. Download the NasomiXI Installer. We will not be running the Nasomi Installer directly but will be using it's files.

2. Extract the zip (..\NasomiXI.v18\data\ from the data folder in the installer to your drive_c directory, which should be located somewhere like /home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/ so that you have a directory that looks like /home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/NasomiXI/SquareEnix/.. etc.

While the files move, why not register an account? You will need one to play.

3. Open the ..\NasomiXI.v18\Install.bat file as a text file.

4. Run a find+replace on the Install.bat file to replace all instances of %drive% with C.

6. Open your terminal and type wine cmd

7. Copy the regsvr32 lines from the Install.bat we modified and paste them into your terminal that has wine cmd running.

8. Exit the wine cmd by typing exit

9. Now type in your terminal wine regedit. At the top left of regedit window, select Registry->Import Registry File... and import the 32 bit registry file included with the installer in ..\NasomiXI.v18\

10. Download the file (some users say they managed without this file)

11. Navigate to /usr/lib/wine/ and create a backup of your existing Place the new into /usr/lib/wine/

12. Installation complete! Few more steps for setting up your graphics and launching the game...

13. Run wine "/home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/NasomiXI/SquareEnix/FINAL FANTASY XI/ToolsUS/FINAL FANTASY XI Config.exe". Borderless windowed mode or Windowed mode are highly recommended.

14. To finally launch the game, run wine "/home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/NasomiXI/SquareEnix/Ashita/ffxi-bootmod/boot.exe" --server --hairpin
