@ZugDuk
from which version to what version did you updated btw?

it is not that important tho. just download the client from github, extract and play, no need to update.
https://github.com/FAForever/downlords-faf-client/releases/tag/v1.2.1

i just did it and it works.

Yes you need to delete old files. If you just unpact the tar.gz old files might be left over that are then still loaded (those old files being wrong verison and therefore causing issues)

Hello, I recently installed FAF client on Linux Mint 19.3 w/Cinnamon. I was able to successfully play stock Forged Alliance on steam with Proton and those launch options. After following instructions I am able to get the client working for FAF. FAF appears to point to the correct location for the game install. However in spite of all of this, when I try to create a match or join one through the client, nothing happens. I don't even get an error message or any real indicator that something happened.

All I have is a client log: https://pastebin.com/HA0Y5M72

There is an iceadapterlogs folder too, do you want that as well?

maybe this one?

Steam is installed and active, Forged Alliance is installed as well and it works with Proton stock.

This is what I used as a guide. I followed it to the letter (except for uninstalling old client, since I have no old client).

@Davebowman The client starts the exe without wine /home/bowman/.faforever/bin/ForgedAlliance.exe
You must have missed the steps:

  1. Make steam build a script
  2. Copy that script from temp folder to a save location.
  3. Enter that script under executable format in the client settings.

I am not sure if the steps are missing in the video but if so the video would be incomplete.

Read "Copy the Steam RUN script" in the wiki article!

I did miss that step, but have changed that and now I am able to join and create games. I tested in a 1v1 and was able to play through the entire game. Thanks for the help.

works brilliant for me. I got way faster game ForgedAlliance.exe boot-up time. nothing else to remark on.

0

really?
because the generated run file for 5.13 is different for me than for 5.09 (i regenerated 5.09 as well, it is not old).

if i just run the run 5.09 file from terminal the original game launches.
if i run the 5.13 file nothing happens. it is working with launching from Steam, but not from terminal or from the client.

i get this in terminal:

how does your Proton 5.13 run file look like?
this is mine. the PATH variable is noticeably shorter in it:

I was hoping for some fix for the missing effects but alas it's still the same.
