Podli, is your FAF set up correctly? In the FAF settings, under "Forged Alliance Forever"?

My game location is set as the following - this points to the steam local files (which of course you can verify from within the Steam client)

Code: Select all
/home/rhianne/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Supreme Commander Forged Alliance


(this matches the entry in fa_path.lua:)
Code: Select all
fa_path = "/home/rhianne/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Supreme Commander Forged Alliance"


Back on the settings - the Command line executable format below that:

Code: Select all
/home/rhianne/faf/run "%s"


The execution directory setting is blank (Default Directory).

My client is installed in a subdirectory of the directory ~/faf. I'm not sure what the exec format thing does. My .desktop file for the client contains the following:

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Name=Forged Alliance Forever
Icon=/home/rhianne/faf/cybran.png
Exec=bash -c "cd /home/rhianne/faf/downlords-faf-client-0.10.3-beta/; ./downlords-faf-client"
StartupWMClass="com.faforever.client.FafClientApplication", "com.faforever.client.FafClientApplication"
Name[en_GB]=Forged Alliance Forever

i think his real problem will be this
java.io.FileNotFoundException: http://content.faforever.com/bireus/lad ... /info.json
https://pastebin.com/Pwn0eeZJ

i have no idea why he is getting this tho.


@Podli
- what is your FAF client version? should be v0.10.4-beta (or maybe v0.10.3-beta)
- can you create/start team games?
- what is your FAF client settings look like? in the client -> Settings -> Forged Alliance Forever


"Hello and Welcome" btw. o/

I think it's likely your settings in FAF are wrong, or in the run file. if you're on discord I can help out.
Run FAF + FA on linux, you can automate the whole install and setup process :

I have had a recurring issue with the client since the beginning. I have my FAF lobby windowed, and upon launching the game, the lobby disappears and I have to manually click on the FA icon in the dash in order to switch to it. In other words, FA is being launched in a hidden state instead of the java client raising the new FA window and giving it focus.

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04. Any ideas?

No idea I'm afraid. I have FAF on a second monitor and not maximized and it stays there when the game is launched.

@will1432
so you cannot launch the java FAF the client?
- what happens when you try to launch it? do you have error message in the terminal or anything?
- where is your jdk10 located (full path pls)?
- where is your java client located (full path pls)?
- how do you try to start the client, what is the terminal command?

we cannot help if we don't know the specifics.

download the jdk from here:
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... openJDK_10
(generally, follow the wiki)

oh i might get what his problem is...
the download site doesn't work when you try to download it. lol


EDIT

if you cannot get jdk10 then try this:
NOTE: this is a retarded approach

- install java11 from Ubuntu repositories
Code: Select all
sudo apt install openjdk-11-jdk


- the starter script for the client has a test function for the java version. change it to java11. 10 -> 11
this line
Code: Select all
if [ "$ver_major" -lt "10" ]; then -> if [ "$ver_major" -lt "11" ]; then

the other line
Code: Select all
if [ "$ver_major" -gt "10" ]; then -> if [ "$ver_major" -gt "11" ]; then


map downloads work and i could join lobbies and start games. it's more than nothing. ^^"

i've launched the client with
Code: Select all
export INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/
./downlords-faf-client





ALSO
i've uploaded my own jdk10 from the archive site:
