Um you need to download the linux client file to a directory by itself and then type "brandelf -t Linux" on it.

Here is what I did to get the latest and greatest to work:


brandelf -t Linux FAH3Console-Linux.exe
chmod 750 FAH3Console-Linux.exe

This will start the client and will ask you for your name/team and whatever else it needs to run. After you enter that in, it will start transfering another exe file called "FahCore_65.exe".
once it completes the download and you see the error "ELF binary type "0" not known", hold down the control and hit the C key. This will exit the program and then you can type:

brandelf -t Linux FahCore_65.exe

Once that is done. You should be able to restart the client by typing:


This is what worked for me and I'm currently running it as we speak.
