The source code can be found on GitHub at: https://github.com/goatcorp/FFXIVQuickLauncher The default installation settings should work for most Linux users without modification, but additional support can be found in the XIVLauncher Discord. Big thanks to the people who've helped us play this game in the best conditions on Linux.

    This install script is maintained by the XIVLauncher dev team. Please contact us in our discord server if you'd like an edit. https://discord.gg/3NMcUV5

    This release uses Wine 7.1 and will install the current release of XIVLauncher, which may auto-update to a later release. Dalamud will be downloaded, installed, and updated via XIVLauncher if enabled.

    If .Net fails to install, it may help to clear your winetricks cache in ~/.cache/winetricks/

    Please note that changing the version of Wine after installing with this script may break your wine prefix. If you're looking to update your current prefix with a newer version of wine, please backup your game install and config and make a new prefix instead. See our migration guide on https://goatcorp.github.io/faq/xl_troubleshooting for steps on how to move/copy FFXIV, character config, and your plugins/settings.

    If you have a Steam Service Account, you'll need to install Windows Steam into your prefix and ensure that it's started in order to login. You will need to have already linked your Steam Account to your Square Enix ID on a Windows machine prior. There is no workaround for Wine users at this time.

    We do not directly support ACT or other addon applications in this prefix and you are best off asking their support channels for assistance if you want to use both together. You should advise them that .Net Framework 4.8 and vcrun2019 are already reinstalled and that changing the wine runner may break the game if so.

    If you have a fsync-capable kernel, it's highly recommended to go into your Lutris settings for FFXIV and turn on fsync support. We've opted to keep this off by default as it's not included in older kernels and some popular distributions don't include the patches in their kernels. It is highly recommended to keep esync on at a minimum, as long as your kernel supports it.

    If you want to limit your FPS, please adjust the DXVK_FRAME_RATE environment variable instead of using FFXIV's built-in frame limiter. It will cause stuttering in game on Linux.

Final Fantasy XIV Online, like its predecessor Final Fantasy XI, is a MMORPG. Upon subscribing, a player can create a custom character (chosen between the five races - each having two different clans - available in the game: Hyur (Midland and Highland), Miqo'te (Seeker of the Sun and Keeper of the Moon), Lalafell (Plainsfolk and Dunefolk), Elezen (Wildwood and Duskwight) and Roegadyn (Sea Wolf and Hellsguard) to explore the world of Eorzea, starting in one on the three City States: Limsa Lomina, Gridania and Ul'dah.

The class of the character can be changed at any time by switching the equipped weapons or tools. They are sorted into four disciplines: Disciples of War (Gladiator, Marauder, Pugilist, Archer and Lancer), Disciples of Magic (Thaumaturge and Conjurer), Disciples of the Land (Fisher, Miner and Botanist) and Disciples of the Hand (Carpenter, Blacksmith, Armorer, Goldsmith, Tanner, Weaver, Alchemist and Culinarian). The Disciples of War and Magic's skills are battle oriented, while Disciples of the Land use theirs to gather Materials on the field, which are used by the Disciples of the Hand for crafting various objects.

The battles are skill based: the player chooses the skill to use, which then needs to charge up, do its effect, then recharge to be available again. In party play, the skills can be coordinated following tactics called Battle Regimen. Defeating enemies yields experience points and skill points. Experience points will have the physical level of the character increase, and the skill points increase the character's current class rank. Enemy toughness can easily be assessed by the color of their aura, displayed next to their names (blue being the easiest and red the toughest). Unlike FFXI, playing in a party (of up to six members) affects the enemy's difficulty, and the aura color will be displayed accordingly.

The main way of getting by in Eorzea is to use Guildleves, which allow to participate in Levequests. They are tasks given to the character to complete (sometimes under a time-limit) to gain more experience, skill points, money and various awards. Once acquired, Guildleves can be used at Aetheryte Crystals or sometimes by talking to a specific NPC. If the Levequest consists of eliminating specific targets, these targets can only be seen by the members participating in the quest. Upon completion, an aetherial node appears and can be used to instantly teleport back to the Aetheryte Crystal.
