    So it seems the instructions on the wiki are for windows and mac, I did try the steam instructions, but the file is a dos executable, even though it is called MBIILauncherLIN.exe. I have openjk working fine, so thats not a problem. distro manjaro (arch based).
    There was also some .Net thing that I installed called Mono. I feel like I am looking at the wrong instructions, any help would be much appreciated.

    No, it's Win32PE, .Net application.
    You need to install Mono (as you already did), and start Mono's executable passing a path to MBIILauncherLIN.exe as a command line parameter.
    But anyway, MBIILauncher can't (I'm almost sure) launch MBII on Linux, it only can download MBII and validate an installation. MBII Launcher is not required to play on Linux.
    Just start openjk with this command line arguments:
    Code:
    +set fs_game mbii
    But don't forget, Movie Battles is strictly 32-bit game. If you have 64-bit Linux, it's necessary to set up a thing called "multiarch" (32-bit libraries) to be able to run MBII.

    Launcher can start the game on Linux, but you've got to get Launcher into the right folder relative to OpenJK.

    Now this starts to run into playing movie battles 2 on mac we have almost the same problems but maybe just maybe you can try running the game with JKJALaunch with the command "set fs_game mbii". Tell me if it works. This is the same way I got MBII to work on mac with an easy fix.
