Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
Mohandevir Feb 6, 2023
I don't know where to ask this... I'm running Holoiso on my secondary computer (Ryzen 5 3600 with RX 6500 XT) and I can't seem to be able to launch Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.

I'm able to get past through the initial setup up to the point where it should launch the game, but it seems to be crashing to the EAapp again (where I can see the EAapp and my library), for a couple of seconds and then back to the Steam game page. I know this because I tried it on my Steam Deck and it works fine.

I launched it a couple of times, but same results... Deleted the compdata folder too and the Proton files every time I tried a different version of Proton... Tried Proton 7.0.6 this morning... Same, same, same!

I can't say for other EAapp games; It's the only one I play.

Mesa issue with this GPU model? Holiso problem?

Any advice would be appreciated

It's not just SJFO, it's not just you, EA broke all their games for everyone on Linux, including Deck, because they are greedy and wanted their new launcher to harvest more and more user information to sell. It is broken on all Linux installs currently.

In fact, the latest Proton (7.0.6) solves it. It works on my Steam Deck, just not on my Desktop, but thanks anyway.

No idea if this is related since I haven't touched the game since Origin died, but I remember needing this environment variable to force it to recognize the correct graphics card back when I played:


The exact path might be different on your distro.

That did the trick. I had to "sudo nano /etc/environment" and copy that string into it. It worked. Thanks a lot!
