[Linux] Yet another Factorio Launcher (Wayland, mimalloc)

Post by ptx0 »

This is a script I've been using for some time, and completely overhauled it for public consumption today.
v1.1:
- better mimalloc support so that we're using 2M pages instead of 1G, which typically aren't configured on systems. ignore libhugetlbfs unless mimalloc is absent, it only degrades performance for mimalloc.
- fixes for KDocker icon detection (Xorg only, not Wayland compatible)
- use hugeadm to manage hugepage pool dynamically. this is a new dependency, make sure you've got it installed so you don't have to statically allocate your pages at boot (no bootloader config changes required)
- use hugeadm to restore the hugepages
- $HOME/factorio.env allows persistently overriding a few variables, like DRI_PRIME and __GL_YIELD="USELEEP" if you need those for your specific system
- one of those is the HUGEADM_PAGESZ variable, which can be used to specify how much RAM you would like Factorio to have access to. default is 8192, which would reserve 16GiB of 2MiB pages.
- wmctrl invocation fixes so that the window can be renamed correctly (Xorg only, not Wayland compatible)

v1.0:
- mimalloc, libhugetlbfs support for better mem allocators
- set CPU to performance mode and then restore to previous mode after Factorio exits. this doesn't happen on battery, if you're in a laptop. (requires upower to detect laptops)
- if not using Wayland, KDocker may be used to plop Factorio into your system tray (custom icon paths supported)
- if running Wayland, SDL2 override
- allows running multiple copies of Factorio from the one script, folder name provided as the first argument
- run Factorio reniced to -19 so it gets more CPU time
- disable Optimus for laptops with NVIDIA support, unless you've explicitly enabled Optimus. it will leave it alone.
- renames the Factorio window to exclude the version string, adding the folder name for the installation as a suffix instead. this makes it easier to use in OBS Studio.

else
	### Change this to wherever your factorio installations are stored.
	### Multiple copies of Factorio may be installed alongside each other.
	### Value:   		 /home/$USER/factorio

#### SCRIPT BELOW

### Using Wayland display server? We'll overload SDL2 with the OS-provided copy and force-enable Wayland output.
wayland_sdl_override

### This is laptop-specific optimization for Factorio.
### If it's not provided by the OS, we assume you do not want to use the discrete GPU for rendering Factorio.
### This wakes the GPU up (obviously) and ensures the laptop uses more power than it needs to. If you don't 
### want this behaviour, export these variables from your shell profile, or change these values to 1 & nvidia
disable_optimus



### Are we plugged in, or on a desktop?
### Switch CPU governor to performance mode.
cpu_performance_mode

### Support multiple copies of Factorio.
### To have spaces in the name, just 'Quote It' when running the script.
### Example: ./factorio.sh "Space Exploration"
MODULE="vanilla"
if ! [ -z "$1" ]; then
	MODULE="$1"
fi
MODULE_DIR="${FACTORIO_PATH}/${MODULE}"
pushd "${MODULE_DIR}" > /dev/null || (echo "Can not enter installation directory. Ensure it exists: ${MODULE_DIR}" && exit 1)

### Detect an existing Factorio instance, and kill it.
kill_existing_factorio


### Microsoft mimalloc is useful to boost FPS in megabases as a more efficient memory allocator.
configure_mempool
enable_mimalloc

### Try and execute Factorio.
./bin/x64/factorio > "${HOME}/.factorio.log" 2>&1 &

#### Wait for Factorio and grab the PID. Exit if we don't find it in 10 attempts.
wait_for_factorio

### We do not want to use KDocker on Wayland. It is not supported yet.
custom_icon

### Now that it's running, renice it so we can grab more CPU.
renice_factorio

### Wait until Factorio exits.
factorio_ping

# Unconfigure hugepages if we've altered the system environment.
restore_mempool

### Go back to the previous CPU governor.
cpu_governor_reset

### End the KDocker process.
kill_kdocker

exit 0

updated the post with v1.1 of the launcher, it properly detects icon paths and more.
