Playing FAF Offline

Postby planeswalker » 11 Oct 2018, 21:12

Hey all, long time SupCom and FA player, just decided to come back to FAF for some nostalgia.

I installed Downlord's client and it works fine, was able to play the game etc.

However when I tried to play offline, I was searching the wiki and this forum and found that I should run


However, when I run that file, I get the following error message

Failed to setup initial search path.

Program : C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin\ForgedAlliance.exe
Cmd line arguments :

Unknown symbol (address 0x008cef50)

Last 100 lines of log...

warning: Can't open lua file "C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin\SupComDataPath.lua"

I'm fairly sure that I ran FAF offline before a year ago but the above doesn't seem to work now.

Anyone have a suggestion/solution? I tried asking in Aeolus chat but either no one knew the answer or they were too busy playing as my question got drowned out by LFGs etc.

check if you have such a file - C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin\SupComDataPath.lua

Hi just to let you know, it seems my problem was that Downlords client was missing something as when I uninstalled it and installed the original FAF client I could start in offline mode now. Bit weird but its fixed. Thanks for your time
