Weird behavior when trying to play Final Fantasy XIV
Hi there! I've been trying out Freedome on both my PC and phone for a couple of days now and I'm very satisfied so far.
The only bump I've run into is when trying to play Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV), an MMORPG. I managed to successfully log in to it once while Freedome was activated, but when I logged out and tried to log back in, it's no longer working.
After a system reboot, here's what I do:
Sign in to Windows 10 (local user account if it matters) -> Wait for Freedome to fully start up and connect -> Start Final Fantasy XIV's launcher (which players use to log in and launch the game from)
No issues here.
Then I launch the game, and click "Start". From here, it tries to connect to the game's data center (located at 188.8.131.52), but eventually fails.
Here's what I think is weird, the connection worked once earlier and my ping time in the game was actually improved when changing from a local VPN location but now it keeps failing, even after several reboots.
Earlier today I could use ping and tracert on the game's server IP addresses, but now it's failing. And after trying to play the game, ANY of my ping and traceroute attempts just won't work except for 192.168.0.1, of course. Turning off Freedome fixes it, but turning it on again breaks it yet again, they just stop at gateway.freedome-vpn.net
I don't have a screenshot of the ping and traceroutes that succeeded, but take my word for it.
Side note: Steam won't sign in either when Freedome is on.
Some info about my environment: Browser protection is set to on, tracking protection is set to on, tried this on both USA east-coast and USA south-east. I'm located in Norway, using Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.296
What am I doing wrong? Would be really happy if someone knew and could help me
Edit: It works when using the Norway location in Freedome. But the ping in my game isn't as good as it is with the USA east-coast one.. Which I'd really like!
