Solved! Turned out fsync is enabled by default on newer kernels for Manjaro. Added PROTON_NO_FSYNC=1 to launch options and that did it. It may be advisable to add it to the recommended install process on the wiki since it has no adverse effects.
@foodlfg I see. I was starting out of a misconception then
@foodlfg But if he can make it work on Steam then the run file itself should be good no?
Sounds like it should work. First off I was suspecting some lib32 drivers or blocking loopback but if game runs on Steam it should also run via FAF (as far as my understanding goes). Maybe some stupid typo in FAForever config?
So you haven't made it work on your new setup ever? If that's the case it could be about anything starting with missing dependencies.
As an aside I was planning to go with openjdk but the specificity of the wiki made me install oracle instead.
Yes, thanks! Overlay and hence vulkan translation appears to be working now. It is still slow though. Joined a game couple of minutes ago and it took like 2.5 mins to start. I was astonished only one dude left till then.
As an additional information, I enabled Vulkan support and overlay on the system. With Steam it shows the version info and such but when launching via FAF the corner remains empty. Don't know if that's an indicator of something?
The PROTON_NO_ESYNC flag is set, yes. I don't think it's network related because I was self-hosting a game with no peers. Did not give any error message either, it just took forever.
I've set up the game on latest Manjaro with Steam Play, and I have a couple of questions:
Also I've read some from the comments in this topic and the game itself was pretty stable compared to some. I have managed to watch two ~1 hour replays (with max speed) and there were no problems.
Thanks in advance!
