The newest version of the launcher.
Installing the launcher (see workaround), using it (with problems - see below), buying, downloading, launching games (tested on Thimbleweed Park), chatting with friends.
What does not
The launcher is pulsing/flashing. I mean, for a frame it shows all its content, and rapidly everything disappears. When you move your coursor over hitboxes, the cycle repeats. It's a bit annoying, but the launcher is still useable.
Install the .msi package. After that, let the launcher download whole update and crash. Now, using winetricks, install DirectX (for example: d3dx10). Then, install Microsoft Visual C++ from this link.
Now you've got everything needed this launcher to work. Launch every time the EpicGamesLauncher.exe with commands -SkipBuildPatchPrereq -opengl. It works also without these commands, but I recommend using them. Personally, I see quite big difference in performance.
