The python client is dead and has been for a long time. Just use the Java client like everyone else.

so i was not able to make the game run on Gallium Nine, not even starting from Steam (PopOS 19.04). other games like Mirrors Edge work with the Gallium Nine parameters. FA just doesn't start.

as for D9KV enabled proton, i was able to play a 57 min long (game time) Seton's Game without any crash. Before i was testing it with replays and it crashed before this time. i need more testing.

watch me how i die at min 57:

on gallium nine : just testing this with latest Proton version (4.11-3) ? when I was using Proton 3.16-9, gallum 9 (installed manually) worked for me. that being said. being on Nvidia. I had to first switch to the nouveau driver because there is no gallium nine support for proprietary nvidia driver yet.

I installed
https://github.com/popsUlfr/Proton/releases
https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/19.04/ubuntu-ma ... 6.deb.html

Pop!_OS 19.04 installed the amd64 version of the libd3dadapter9 lib with apt install so i had to use the previous i386 one.
I have an AMD RX560 GPU btw.

my launch options are:
PROTON_USE_GALLIUM_NINE=1 PROTON_GALLIUM_NINE_MODULEPATH="/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/d3d/d3dadapter9.so.1" PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 PROTON_DUMP_DEBUG_COMMANDS=1 PROTON_LOG=1 %command%

Again, it works with Mirrors Edge, another directx9 game. But not with FA, FA crashes at launch immediately. MEH!

this old version of my script allowed you to do it : https://github.com/tatsujb/installFAFsc ... ed9a1bd3d0

in steam launch options for FA :
Code: Select all
PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1, PROTON_DUMP_DEBUG_COMMANDS=1, PROTON_USE_GALLIUM_NINE=1, PROTON_GALLIUM_NINE_MODULEPATH="/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/d3d/d3dadapter9.so.1:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/d3d/d3dadapter9.so.1" %command%

that's how you switch to nouveau when on nvidia. it's the default drver to start with on 18< versions of ubuntu, on ubuntu 19> nvidia community driver is default, though I generally switch that to the modified proprietary nvidia one for best native performance. but for gallium nine only nouveau will work.

then after switching to nouveau run :

Code: Select all
sudo apt update && sudo apt autoremove -y && sudo apt autoclean && sudo reboot


after reboot (line by line otherwise it doesn't work) :

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates -y && sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y
python3 -m pip install --user pipx
~/.local/bin/pipx ensurepath
eval "$(cat .bashrc | tail -n +10)"
pipx install protontricks
pipx upgrade protontricks
protontricks 9420 galliumnine


from my script, I dug out installing protontricks and winetricks (latest), if you prefer to do that manually :

Code: Select all
sudo apt install -y python3-pip python3-setuptools python3-venv libnss3-tools libd3dadapter9-mesa:i386 libd3dadapter9-mesa
sudo purge winetricks -y
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks.bash-completion
sudo mv winetricks /usr/bin
sudo mv winetricks.bash-completion /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/winetricks
python3 -m pip install --user pipx
~/.local/bin/pipx ensurepath
eval "$(cat .bashrc | tail -n +10)"
pipx install protontricks
pipx upgrade protontricks
protontricks 9420 galliumnine

sell the nvidia card and buy and AMD one instead. really.
i wouldn't buy the newest RX5700 series just yet because you will need the newest kernels for that. by next year it will have more mainstream support.

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page= ... july&num=1
This round of testing features the Navi Radeon RX 5700 series tested with the very latest Linux 5.3 development kernel as of this past weekend, which is the first kernel featuring this Navi support.


The next Ubuntu release 19.10 (soon) will have the kernel version 5.3 btw. it looks like.

you're on x-server ? how??? what version and flavor of linux?

wayland would be much better here.

almost every linux FAFer has no issues with FAF so I don't see it as an insurmountable task for you to get it running.
