Uninstalling Process

Troubleshooting

Stuck on advertisement in Game Panel or Client Panel

If you’ve misclicked on an advertisement in the Client Panel, there is no way to back out. Controls currently don’t work properly in the Client tab, you’ll need to reload the software. You can reload the software by pressing Ctrl R or clicking the reload button found at the bottom of the Settings tab.

If you’ve misclicked on an advertisement in the Game Panel, click the back button. If for whatever reason this isn’t working, click the kill button(x button) and load the panel again.

Software is not opening

For Linux users, assuming you installed from Snap, Snap apps can take a moment to open as they’re being sandboxed. The first boot will take longer. Please read and troubleshoot any errors that show up on in your terminal.

For Windows users, please check your task manager and see if Falix Software is running. Since it’s built on Electron, you may see a few instances of it running. You can kill the process and try again, if it’s not working on the second try, you can try re-installing the software.

Troubleshooting - Building

These are issues you may get while building the software from GitHub

Glasstron not found or not defined

Glasstron is widely used in the software, you’ll need to make sure you’ve installed it’s dependency. To install Glasstron, use the following command:

npm install glasstron

Electron and/or BrowserView not defined

This will occur if you’ve choosen Electron v10 and up. Please only use Electron v9.0.0 - v9.4.3. Run the following commands:

npm uninstall electron
npm install [email protected]

This issue is the reason why we use Electron v9.

Electron Builder has errors while installing

We’re not sure what’s causing the issue either, please try installing an older version of Electron Builder instead. In our case, we just use:

npm install [email protected]

Electron Builder v20 still has all the features we need to build Falix Software, with no issues.

Appx file won’t open

If you’ve built a APPX file on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, this file can’t be used. APPX file is built for Windows 10 only.

What’s an APPX file?

Appx file won’t let me install on Windows 10

We recommend that you actually EXE format instead of APPX. Please change the target under Windows to “nsis”. NSIS will provide a EXE setup file.

If you want to use Appx, keep reading:

Assuming you’ve tried to build a Appx file with Electron Builder, we didn’t use this. We use Electron Windows Store dependency instead, we use the following command to build:

electron-windows-store --input-directory C:\Users\YOURUSERNAMEHERE\Documents\Desktop-App\dist\win-unpacked  --output-directory C:\Falix-Software\ --package-version 2.3.31.1 --package-name Falix --publisher-display-name "Korbs Studio" --identity-name "32203KorbsStudio.FalixSoftware" --package-display-name "Falix Software" --assets C:\Users\YOURUSERNAMEHERE\Documents\assets

You’ll need to setup and change some of these paths and download assets for the Windows 10 version. Also, please do use Electron Builder to unpack the app(usually creates a win-unpacked folder)
