HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

The attractive new Launcher does not work, it will not load under Wine.

To use the old launcher.:

Edit FFXIV_BOOT.cfg:

Change Browser from 0 to 1

NOTE: Previously it was necessary to change the BrowserType setting, this is untouched now.

If you are having a problem with the launcher reporting you are not licenced to use this platform, the Launcher has mistaken Linux (no license available) for MacOS (seperate license available). There is an option in the winecfg GUI to Hide Wine version...this will make the launcher think you're using Windows.

The opening cut scene still doesn't work, without disabling it you cannot progress to the character selection screen.

Edit FFXIV.cfg:

Change CutsceneMovieOpening from 0 to 1

It is no longer necessary to use a 32-bit wineprefix or install additional (winetricks) components. Apart from these two text file edits Final Fantasy XIV works out-of-the-box now.

NB: After entering username and password it is essential to press Enter (on the keyboard) rather than clicking the button (with the mouse). If you are receiving a Javascript error using the Launcher this is essential.

Unable to launch game.

The launcher appears to be working...on a fresh install it prompts for the Registration Code. I enter this and it rejects the code as already registered (well, yeah).

I copied a ~/Documents/My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn/ folder from a previous, but no longer, working distro which causes the launcher to present the log in screen. I enter my Square Enix ID, Square Enix Pasword and One-Time Password (from the authenticator) and I'm presented with a new screen which informs me:
This service account does not have a valid FINAL FANTASY XIV licence for this platform or your subscription has expired...

Of course I do have a current subscription, as I can play on Windows, no issues.

You need to activate the option to hide wine version to program in winecfg. If you do not ff14 thinks you are playing on a mac and check for the mac license since they use wine for the mac version

Jerome, thank you!

I have never had to use this switch before with any game. However, FFXIV is running a treat again with Wine on Linux. I am very grateful to you thanks again!

I built a fresh 32-bit wineprefix, installed xact with winetricks, tried downloading the Direct9 redistributable and installed that into the prefix.

Every time I start Final Fantasy, the Launcher opens up displaying the FFXIV Online graphic and does nothing else, goes no further.

I have set my ~/Documents/My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn/FFXIV_BOOT.cfg to
DX11Enabled 1
...
BrowserType 2

I have also tried other BrowserType values: 0,1,3.

Image below shows all I get:

Thank you.

Ignore "BrowserType" (keep it at 0), and set "Browser" to "1"; this will revert the launcher to the older one that works (mostly) fine (may have to press Enter instead of clicking Login)

Thanks Sean. I'm playing again, what more can I say.
