Download Question(s)

Postby Lord_James » 05 Nov 2018, 03:05

Hello, new player to FAF, but not SupCom FA here. I have a question regarding the FAF download:


Do I require an online copy, like from steam, or can I play FAF with a hard copy, like the CD? I'm asking as I have the CD for the original game (in all it's buggy goodness :lol: ), but nothing more recent. Would the FAF download even work? Or do I have to buy another version?


Thank you in advance

You need to link your account to a steam account that has a copy of FA before you can log into the FAF client and download the game files/play.
You should be able though to activate your CD key using steam (just redeem it as a steam key) to get a free copy of FA on steam.

Ok, I downloaded the game yesterday, and played a couple matches... now I cant find out how to re-open FAF to play again today... I might have done something wrong, but I don't know what I did. Any solutions would be appreciated, or perhaps a guide on 'how to download FAF' (I couldn't find anything on this forum about downloading procedures).


Thank you, Lord James

you can find the download link to both FAF clients (they are written in different languages - they both connect to the same server etc) here

after you have the client installed you start the client, log in with your faf username/password and then click on the play tab in the client and host/join a lobby
