When I create a custom game the launcher tries to start the game. But it crashes before opening I am on 5.10.68-1-MANJARO. Can you help me please?
I tried the release 1.6:
Hi. I have no idea about linux but your game log shows:
"warning: Can't open lua file "Z:\home%USER%.faforever\bin..\Installed.Prefs"
warning: unable to load Installed.Prefs; using empty initial prefs"
so it seems you dont have a game.prefs file
Did you start the game once from steam?
If not, do so to create a game.prefs file (which safes your personal settings like resolution, hotkeys, templates and os on) and then try again on FAF
Sounds like a problem with wine. How are you running the game? From my experience proton 6.3 works pretty well, and it should be consistent across distros since it uses containers.
@amygdala Thank you for the reply, I did start the game before to create a profile. I started it once more to no avail.
@MazorNoob Thanks for the reassurance, wine is what I understand the least. I am using proton 6.3 from steam and installed wine, wine-mono, winetricks, protontricks 9420 dlls d3dx9 and protontricks 9420 dlls xact. Steam is not a flatpack.
I played two games some weeks ago under 1.4.7 with the lutris installer until it stopped working.
I reinstalled it with the help of tagedas video.
I had to use jdk15-adoptopenjdk
I launch the client with:
I will try reinstalling wine now.
Reinstalling wine wasn't enough. I will try reinstalling everything tomorrow but first I need some sleep.
I'd avoid installing stuff with winetricks unless you verified things don't work without it, sometimes overrides can make things worse. Try this:
Thank you very much it works!
I removed FA's wineprefix from the location stated in the run file. Afterwards I uninstalled supcom from steam and removed wine, wine-mono and winetricks. I also removed everything from the FAF client, including the hidden files in ~/
I followed the guide from @Usling https://forum.faforever.com/topic/12/linux-support/157
and did not have to install winetricks or wine itself manually for supcom to start under Proton 6.3-7.
Afterwards I followed the guide from the wiki.
Last time I forgot to set the launch command in the FAF client, so that was a good hint of you and probably the reason why it did not work in the first place. I think that step is missing in tatsu's video or I missed it.
I am looking forward to play with you guys
