How to fix your filters...

"NPC" and "Others" refer to anyone not in your party. However, your party and alliance's current target is considered to be part of the party or alliance.

So if you want to see a Toroma's abilities, i.e. the comment:

The Toroma readies Chaotic Eye

then you need to NOT FILTER the Special abilities initieated by party members (or by alliance members). NPCs and Others refer to anything not in your party or alliance that are NPCs and other parties, respectively.

They seriously need to fix this issue on carbuncle. The chat filters do not work, so lag is horrible, if your in a highly populated area, you can't even tell what kind of damage you are doing because there's to much other stuff around.

All your chat filter settings have been reset after the version update. Several new options were added, as well as division among some existing options. I had to go ahead and re-select all my filters after this update.

I actually have a problem where I have to enable filters for both NPC and Others in order to filter out those msg's that pertain to other parties. Using just Others doesn't work for some reason. I thought NPC was only supposed to refer to pets and avatars that belonged to members of your own party. Am I mistaken?? Lemme know =^)

I reset all my chat filters, but nothing. Me and two members of my static are having the same problem. The only thing that seems to be working is the hold option on ls, pty, and emotes, but the others are all on, (except for pty dmg, ect.) and still massive stuff going through there from other parties.

Does anyone have any idea if this update fix the other issues mentioned earlier (like food duration and MH blackouts) or just the Dynamis one stated here?

I am getting the same thing, usually every 5-10 minutes the game will freeze and stay that way for about 10-20 seconds. That part is an annoyance. Then after about 30 minutes of play the game will freeze, scramble my screen, and lock up everything till I do a "hard" shutdown.

Notes: I play on PC, I use a 3Meg Connection, My PC performed above average on the benchmark, and hasn't given me problems in the past 10 months, only since the most recent update.

the problem with the LS messages can be fixed by putting what you want it to say in " " so that it puts more then just the first word

I hope this fixes my problem of not being able to zone out of my mog house without the "Black Screen" It is really annoying having to shut down cold everytime I need to go to my mog house...

They might "bounce" all players when it happens, forcing you to logout and download the new update, but they said there won't be any server maintenance.

It's the new npc filters. You have to turn off the all the attack type ones or you will see battle spam from other people.
