Final Fantasy 14 has been in the limelight for a while now as the latest Final Fantasy game with some of the best graphical fidelity and an online multiplayer mode. To keep pace with their player base, they have gigantic servers spread around the globe. Their servers are usually well maintained and easily accessible but sometimes players are randomly disconnected due to internet issues or the game being unable to communicate with the servers. This issue has many error codes with some of the most common codes being 9002 and 90002. In this article, we will look at FF14 9002 error: How to fix it.
How to Fix Error 9002?
The ways to fix Error 9002 are the same as the solutions to fix Error 90002 in Final Fantasy 14. Some of the most common solutions that have been working for players can be found below;
1) Restarting the modem/ router
The most basic and easy method is for you to restart/ reset the modem/ router in your location. This makes the game communicate with the servers better. If restarting the modem does not work then resetting the modem is the next best alternative.
2) Restarting the system.
Most bugs with the later versions of Windows can be solved with a quick restart. If there is an issue with the operating system that is preventing the game from communicating with the server, a restart will mostly fix the issue. It is worth trying as it takes little effort but it may solve this issue.
3) Reinstalling/ Reverifying the game files.
Reinstalling/ Reverifying the game files will purge the system of any corrupt files that may have been restricting the game from communicating with the server. If an uninstall is not possible, you can try reverifying the game files to get rid of any corrupted game files.
4) Running the game as Administrator.
If the game is not allowed to access certain permissions that are essential for it to communicate with the network and the server, running the game as an administrator may fix the issue and make it playable. This method takes barely any time and may fix the issue making it worth a try.
5) Switching to Google DNS.
It is possible that the game is unable to perform optimally at the currently set DNS settings. It is usually recommended to change to the Google DNS server as it is known to have a better connection to servers, reduced ping and better speeds in general. It is also possible that switching to this DNS server will fix the issue as it will refresh the connection to the game server or may have a stronger connection to the game server.
6) Disable Large Send Offload
The data sent to the game servers are usually broken into smaller packets of data to optimise network usage and improve performance. Players can disable this to fix the error by following these steps;
Open the Network Connections box by clicking on Win + R and inputting ‘ncpa.cpl’.
Once the Network Connections is open, right-click on the network currently in use and select properties.
Click on Configure option under the networking tab.
Click on the Advanced tab and click on Large Send Offload v2 (IPv4) in the Property section.
Set its value to disabled and apply changes.
If none of these solutions work, we recommend getting in touch with the developer as they may have a solution for this issue.
