dude, you are making this hard for yourself.
download the client from github. it's the compiled version and it contains the ICE adapter too.
https://github.com/FAForever/downlords- ... RC1.tar.gz

we cannot help you with java build errors, why the ICE adapter doesn't compile and stuff. btw they have a video on github about how you can compile the project.

btw Proton 4.11 works for me.
do you have an AMD Vega card maybe?

Nah, I'm a dev (though not a Java dev) and figured it out (but yes, downloading the ICE adapter jar makes sense). It all works now, thanks, so see you in game!

Yes, I'm using Proton 4.11 again. No, RX570.

The only issues I seem to have now are:

- background of news and chat pages is white, which makes text (light grey) very hard to read (could be incompatibility with the version of JavaFX I'm using; lots of errors in the log regarding XML and CSS)
- warnings that mods are corrupt and cannot be loaded — seems to happen for all mods, UI mods included
- bireus errors — I know these are harmless; any way to just disable this since it never works?

your issues make it sound as if you're using an open source graphic driver.

what graphic card do you have and what driver have you installed (if none specify that) also which specific distribution of linux and version are you running?
Run FAF + FA on linux, you can automate the whole install and setup process :

RX570, Fedora 30, and yes, the open source drivers: "AMD RADV POLARIS10 (LLVM 8.0.0)".

Seems to work fine now. The only remaining issue I have is that mods don't work (so no Supreme Scoreboard in replays).

i have RX560 (the same GPU family and drivers) and everything works (only some effects missing).
AMD RADV POLARIS11 (LLVM 8.0.0)

opensource amd driver is the best, don't change it.


no mods?

pls test the latest client with Open JRE11.

Code: Select all
sudo apt install openjdk-11-jre
export INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64


Open JRE12, 13 don't:
