FFXIV Launcher Login does not appear, or takes forever

After the FFXIV 5.1 patch the new launcher gets “stuck” at the top of the scrolly page with Mogry Kiosk banner. It takes up to 3-5 minutes to “auto scroll down” to the login prompt. After entering login information, it takes another 3-5 minutes for the “Play FFXIV DirectX 11” to pop up. Once the game launches, it’s smooth as butter.

Anyone else have this issue?

At least, the new launcher opens for you.
I went back to the old launcher to avoid problems. However, I’m not using Lutris but Proton for FFXIV. So I’m not sure if this works for you as well.

How to:
in c:/users/…/My Documents/My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn/FFXIV_BOOT.cfg change “Browser” to “1” (source: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues/580#issuecomment-547387929 )

It’s not a solution but a workaround. But at least you may be able to launch the game.
