What works

Installing the launcher, logging in, installing and launching games, social elements.

What does not

Downloads don't properly show speeds, they're always stuck at 0.0 B/s.


The launcher needs the arguments -SkipBuildPatchPrereq -opengl in order to function properly. With that, everything appears to work perfectly.

I installed the winetricks xinput and xact as suggested in the Lutris script, however I don't know if they had any actual impact on anything. 

What was not tested

  • Anything with the UE4 devkit/mods
  • Purchasing anything

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
