Anyone else playing any mmorpgs like World of Warcarft or Final Fantasy XI online on Windows 7?
I currently play FFXI and on Windows 7 itís been ok; however windower doesnít work even with UAC turned on or off. I have Tried Changing Ownership of the windower folder and still canít get it to work.
Anyone notice anything different from Windows XP, or Windows Vista compared to playing on Windows 7?
I havenít reactivated my WoW account so havenít tried it yet on windows 7. I wouldnít play WoW on vista because the frame rate was HORABLE.

I run the Benchmark Program for Final Fantasy XI online located at FINAL FANTASY XI Official Web Site
on both my XP Pro and Windows 7 System with and without Sli with standard settings here is the outcome.
High Res Scores Low Res Scores
Win XP without SLI Ė 4999 Win XP without SLI - 6706
Win XP with SLI Ė 5004 Win XP with SLI - 6800
Win 7 without SLI Ė 3830 Win 7 without SLI - 5186
Win 7 with SLI Ė 3721 Win 7 with SLI Ė 5032
These test were done on
32-bit Operating System
Intel CPU 2.80GHz x2
1 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT x2
I am Really Shocked by the test results; I thought that Windows 7 would win this but itís clear that running Final Fantasy XI Online with SLI enabled on XP Pro is the better of the choices; and I get to use windower.
I do have to say on behalf of Windows 7 the test looked much better than on XP and playing the game on Windows 7 did look more polished and less jaggy. I couldnít test the frame rate on windows 7 because I couldnít get windower to work. But it was about 27-29 FPS on XP.
I donít have Vista installed but I am sure Win 7 would out beat it any day.
