I’m having the same issue. Doesn’t matter which option I choose, first or second, I’m always stuck with a black screen and the loading doughnut in the bottom right. The game also asks me every time if I want to setup my controller despite having done that already. I already copied my character settings to the appropriate path from my Windows version; the folder was not created automatically. That apparently worked for people before, but not for me.
I downloaded the “Official version + XIV installer” from Lutris. My distribution, if necessary, is
PRETTY_NAME=“Solus 4.1 Fortitude”
It was a fresh install. Updated everything on login, installed wine 5.22. Help would be much appreciated.
Yeah, that was the issue for me; the setting was 0. A friend had worked with me on that, I’ve been playing the past hour already. I had copied my Windows settings folder to the path I was used from Windows, however, Lutris created the settings on a slightly different path so I simply missed it because I didn’t think of looking there. It was pure coincidence that I found it. Don’t ask me why it did that, it’s really dumb. But it worked! I can play quite well now.
