there is a nasty bug in version 3712 that causes the screen go black.
game, cursor, sound works but the screen is black or something like that.
it was introduced by the UI scaling feature and the default chat windows causes it and only effects fresh installs.

solution:
YO U have to move the chat window in the Steam version xD
run the game outside of faf -> open the chat window via ENTER -> move the window a bit -> close the game -> try again in faf


track the issue here:

(it's shit on windows too so probably will be fixed SOON™)

lol my PopOS 19.10 upgraded to 5.xx kernel from 3.8(? i think)

uname -a
Linux pop-os 5.3.0-7648-generic #41~1586789791~19.10~9593806-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 13 17:50:40 UTC x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

i hope if wont crash... because of the "better" opensource drivers for my new Navi10 GPU. :Đ


Ubuntu 20.04 LTS has this kernel too but i didnt expect PopOS to upgrade since the new PopOS based on Ubuntu 20.04 is coming soon. Does Ubuntu 19.10 upgrade to the Kernel 5.3 too?

Any experience with mouse lag issues?

Late game (whenever there's a lot on the screen, especially when zoomed in), the UI is slow and doesn't track the mouse properly. I don't remember this being an issue back when using Win 7. I guess it could be slower rendering?

lag? like the mouse is behind where it should be?
or it's flickering (disappear-reappear fast)?

i have experienced both. these solved it for me:
- d3d_cursor console command
- vsync on
- maybe proton 4.11 and D9VK
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... flickering


the console++ mod can run console commands automatically for you.
tho i have not tried it. xD



also everyone, try to use the software renderering mode for the client:
https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?ti ... nt_freezes
without this the client destroys my Gnome 3 DE, 1fps renderering ingame and outside of the game too after 30 minutes.

Yes, the mouse cursor acting like it's ignoring some motion events. I'll try d3d_cursor. Thanks. VSync gives me cursor-flicker, thus I have it off.

Wondering if anyone can help me with setup?

I've followed the Linux Setup Guide on the FAForever wiki but I'm at a point where I can't get any further.

Code: Select all
Copy the Steam RUN script
If you ran the game from Steam you should have a file called "run" in /tmp/proton_your_linux_username. The tmp directory is only temporary so copy this file to somewhere nice.

cp /tmp/proton_test1/run ~/Games/javaFafClient/downlords-faf-client-1.1.2/
If you cannot find the run file, please check your Steam settings again. #Install the game, set launch options

Note: This file contains the environment variables for Proton that are necessary to launch the game in a Proton/Wine environment. It also contains the version of Proton that you have selected previously in Steam. The FAF client will use this file to launch the game after we set it.


The problem I'm having is that I cannot find a proton folder in /tmp/ at all. I've even tried to look here whilst I have Forged Alliance running, just in case the folder was being removed as soon as I quit the game.

I can confirm that in Steam, I have the following:
Forced Proton 3.16-9
Launch options are set to those detailed in the wiki (I cannot link them or even type them here as it seems to be blocked by the forum spam filter)

I'm running Pop!_OS with KDE Plasma if that makes any difference whatsoever.

well, i just deleted my folder "proton_aa" and run the game from Steam using the Launch options below here, and for me the "/tmp/proton_aa" directory were recreated with the run file in it. so i dont understand why you dont have it. i have PopOS 19.10.
anyone?

Proton 4.11
PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 PROTON_DUMP_DEBUG_COMMANDS=1 DXVK_HUD=1 %command%

I had the same issue until i forced an explicit proton version in Steam but I can see that you have one configured aswell .. maybe try changing this version and see how it goes ?

Thanks for the responses.

I'm not really sure what the problem was. My Pop!_OS install was only a day or two old so I reinstalled, updated, installed KDE and then I installed Steam from the Discover Software Centre (not the Pop!_Shop this time). Oddly enough, it now seems to create the folder as expected which allowed me to continue the install process.

All seems to be working nice and dandy now, so thanks!

Can't wait to play with my friends :)
