Download and Install Ashita

Post by Aethius » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:22 am

The first step to connect to Aethia is to download and install the Ashita client. Ashita is an app that creates a wrapper around FFXI to allow it to run in windowed mode and also to override the server in which FFXI connects to. Ashita does many other things by way of plugins and addons, but we won't get into that now.

Download Ashita for Aethia here:

Copy to your C:\ drive (or any other directory you prefer) and right-click on the icon and click "Extract all..."

Enter the newly-created "ashita" directory and double click "ashita.exe."

Optionally, you cana right-click on ashita.exe and select "Pin to Taskbar" and you will always have Ashita on your quicklaunch bar.

You should see "Aethia" listed in the server lists. Click the "play" icon to connect to Aethia. A command line console will popup, enter 1 and press enter, now login with your username and password you created on

Account creation from the command line is disabled on Aethia. If you try to create an account from Ashita, you will get an error that the username already exists. In order to create an account, you must do so from the website:
