I had to change line 8 to match where my SupCom was installed (appears to be a typo there anyway, "steampps"). Otherwise works well, I was getting atrocious performance in the score screen on Proton 5.0

works brilliant

it's FA in offline mode.

Don't have any use for that but if I start wanting to play Ai skirmishes that I can save and load, why not

In Downlord's FAF client change in Settings -> Forged Alliance Forever -> Command Line Format for Executable to

/path/to/run_faf.sh "%s"

To use it in FAF.

Yeah I thought it was obvious to set up as the launcher script in the client 😉

oh yeah!

What's fantastic about that is that we can just put it into the wiki and it'll make my video tutorial obsolete [ a good thing! ] or I can make a new one showing this script instead.

FAF installation on linux is now EVEN easier as it no longer requires a first run from steam (or for steam play for all titles to be enabled, for that matter if you only play FAF).

If it's stable we might even add this into the client directly 🤔

lol this is in the script:

This game is just weird
Please reimplement in Spring engine

i had more problem installing spring on linux than FAF btw.
random crashes even. random crashes even on Windows. lol

I dunno, BAR works fine for me. but yeah I'm hard at work on something of that nature as you two already well know 😉 but that's enough offtopic for this thread.

Yes, I concur - works brilliantly.

Have been running FAF under Wine successfully for the past year but recently been getting memory exceptions. This alternative is an excellent replacement.

Just one minor anomaly in Nathmate's instructions: in the current zip file from the github page, the start file is named run-faf.sh not run_faf.sh

Made a Lutris install script, this should make it even easier for new people since that tool is quite popular. Right now it's just for the Steam version, but the retail disc is already in my drive and gog version bookmarked. 🙂
