What works

I played the first intro mission to completion, worked fine.

What does not

The launcher seems pretty broken. After I downloaded it on Steam it kept restarting.


I fixed the launcher issue by manually starting the Launcher.exe under the 'Tools' folder in the game folder itself. It updates once then restarts, that's good enough and it can then be closed. In your wine prefix's "drive_c/users/$(your username here)/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Warframe/Downloaded/Public/Tools/" folder will contain a "Launcher.exe". This is an updated version that must be manually copied to the "Tools" folder mentioned earlier. Afterwards, it launches just fine from steam.

HowTo / Notes

To get Warframe working on Arch Linux

winetricks: d3dx9 wininet winhttp xact hosts corefonts fontfix vcrun2015

overrides: dnsapi (builtin, native) rasapi32 (native) wininet (native, builtin) winhttp (native, builtin)

Windows version: Windows XP

staging: Enable CSMT, Enable VAAPI, Enable EAX

Launcher: Enable only: Bulk Download, Aggressive Download, (and Launcher GPU acceleration if you want it) 

In Game: Disable adaptive exposure as it doesn't work properly and keeps making the area dark and light in a loop, and disable motion blur as it can sometimes cause stutters and/or freezes.

Wine version: wine-staging 2.1 on Arch Linux via standard pacman -S wine-staging (not aur)


Currently, the Launcher will not properly update itself, and will instead download the new launcher, close itself, relaunch itself, and repeat.

How to solve that is to go into the Steam/steamapps/common/Warframe/Tools/ folder, and replace "Launcher.exe" with "Launcher.exe.cpy".

A single command to do that would be "mv Launcher.exe.cpy Launcher.exe".

The note below this one doesn't need to be followed.
