FFXIV Launcher after 5.2 update

Not sure if it’s just me but FFXIV Launcher is showing just a blank screen after the 5.2 update. The links to the Lodestone and external websites work, but nothing inside the launcher to login pops up.

UPDATE: Found a workaround - using the old launcher to install patch now.

‘’’’

so what was the workaround??

Game can be patched with the old launcher.

You can run the old launcher by executing the game with executable called “ffxivboot64.exe” instead of “ffxivboot.exe”.

This can be found from $HOME/Games/final-fantasy-xiv-a-realm-reborn/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/SquareEnix/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn/boot/

Remember to execute the old launcher in the correct wine-environment. The Lutris application has button “Run EXE inside wine prefix”. Find and select the old launcer (ffxivboot64.exe) to login and patch the game.

I’ll try to remember to give an update to this topic later, since I’m just patching the game itself :slight_smile:
