The attractive new Launcher does not work, it will not load under Wine.
To use the old launcher.:
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.
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.
