Some new themes are now available for the website... Listed under Account!

If you would like to create your own you can push one to

an example one is given
open you USER file inside your FFXI Dir. you fill have files that are encoded with a hex number. So open up your calculator app and set it to programmer mode.

2 ways to do it

1. type the id number in the hex field and get the decimal number then take that decimal number - 21808 = ? then convert that decimal back to hex and change the file name to the new hex number
so for knowone its 57288 - 21808 = 35480 convert to hex is 8a98
rename and overwrite file dfc8 which is 57288 in hex to 8a98

and open these 2 web pages.
this is your old charid number page:

this is your current charid number:

type in your char name in both and get the ID in the top. example mine is
id = 57288 in hex thats dfc8

id = 35480 in hex its 8a98

so delete you current file named 8a98 and change the name of file dfc8 to 8a98
