Update the Client

Ffxi first white en

In order to update the client, you will have to delete the file called VTABLE.DAT from the FFXI folder.  The VTABLE.DAT file can be found in the FFXI folder (see pictures below for reference).

The file to be deleted will be the Vtable.dat

Delete

After deleting Vtable.dat, proceed to open pol and check your FFXI files.

Note: If “pol.exe” is opening xiloader (the black screen where you can log into SuperNova) instead of PlayOnline, then use “pol_org.exe” in the PlayOnlineViewer folder.
