I installed Battlefield 1 (Trial Version) using the online installer (https://lutris.net/games/battlefield-1/) on my Asus ROG Strix GL702VM laptop running KDE Neon User Edition (16.04) and kernel 4.16.3-041603-generic. I followed all of the instructions on the website with the exception of “Make sure “Disable Lutris runtime” is unchecked in the game’s system options tab or else download will fail.” I didn’t have a download failure, plus this is an advanced option so I could not find it when I was installing the game. I have since gone back and disabled this, but the game still will not start.
Origin and the game both install fine, with only minor issues (download will pause temporarily at 22%). However, the game will not run. When I click the play button for the game, the launcher starts and the online status bar in the upper right corner changes from “Online” to “In Game Playing Battlefield 1 TM (Trial)”, but I am immediately dumped back to the Origin library. I checked the system activity in KDE immediately after hitting the play button, it shows that “bf1Trial.exe” starts, but then stops less than 2 seconds later. I think the exe is crashing.
What can I do to fix this?
Edit: I failed to mention that I have Battlefield 1 installed on my secondary hard drive in a NTFS partition. Origin is on my primary SSD. I also installed Zuma’s Revenge under Origin on my secondary hard drive and Zuma’s Revenge works fine.
