You need to change the resolution of your game window to better fit with your monitor's display. 
Launch FFXI Config within your FFXI directory and change the game resolution to something smaller.
Next, you need to change your ashita launcher settings to match the resolution that you entered within FFXI Config.
Make sure that these two resolutions match exactly or you may experience graphics issues.
We recommend playing the game in windowed or borderless-windowed mode.

Password Characters Being Duplicated in xiloader

(thank you Melame for this write up)
If you are having trouble with xiloader double typing each character in the password section, here is a little guide to fixing the problem for Windower by editing the "settings.xml" file.

  1. Run Notepad as admin by right clicking the Notepad icon and selecting "Run as Administrator".
  1. Click File > Open and then navigate to the Windower folder (usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Windower4).
  1. In order to edit the "settings.xml" you will need to change "Text documents (*.txt)" next to the "file name" bar to search for "all files." Once that is done, simply open "settings.xml" in Notepad.
  1. Under <profile name="whatevernameyouuse"> add this set of lines:

<args>--server --user your_username_here --password your_password_here</args>

  1. Save the new "settings.xml" file and autologin will be enabled while also keeping all of your Windower settings. You may have to delete your old direct shortcut to your <profile name="whatevernameyouuse"> and pin a new copy to your desktop.
