it's "support" it just means "if the lib doesn't work we didn't do it, it's not supposed to be part of our system, don't use it problem solved".

that doesn't mean they'll take active measures to prevent us from installing the 32bit libraries. I'm sure they're perfectly aware of the wine implications. adding 32 bit mode was already needed since ubuntu 17 when installing wine from wineHQ. the only difference is now we can't complain to them if they don't work, we'll have to fix it ourselves.

and don't think we personally need to worry about it since we're using proton and I'm sure steam sees their steam play's continued functionality as a priority.

and a vast majority of games that require emulation on linux are 32bit. 64bit games are still quite rare and new.

we will see soon.

Steam will stop supporting Ubuntu Linux over 32-bit compatibility
When there's no native 32-bit support, Valve doesn't want to stick around.

there ubuntu backtracked 100% now : https://ubuntu.com/blog/statement-on-32 ... -20-04-lts

this should come to and end promptly. this blew ridiculously out of proportion. if you google it there's about a googleplex articles about it from every net newspaper on the planet. and everyone has only this tweet and nothing newer as information.

I don't think Pierre-Loup Griffais stands all that firmly behind his tweet yet this landslide of articles is going to make backtracking a painful experience.

Which Proton/wine version are you guys using for multiplayer, and does it work reliably for you? Also, which distro?
(I had desync issues last I tried, even with a couple of Proton 3.x versions I tried.)

Ubuntu 18.10
basic mesa drivers (no PPA added)
Proton 3.16-9 is ok, currently using Proton 3.16-6 Gallium Nine Extras 0.3.0
AMD RX560

i only have desync during watching replays.

Thanks. I just realised the Proton version is baked into the `run` file, so it appears it's necessary to copy that again after changing the (global) Steam Play version.

Exactly.
I'm glad it's working for you now.

As for the others having problem with FAF on Linux, follow the wiki. This issue for example is mentioned:
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... ync_issues
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... ch_options
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... RUN_script

I've made it more clear what to do in this case.

it didn't work out of the box:
