What works

The installer works for both installing and updating game, though the game will not launch without workaround listed below.

What does not

The game will not run without the workarounds listed below.


game will only run if the wine version is wine 5.19-staging as no other versions seem to work at this time. the game also suffer the unity bug of freezing or no input if game is alt-tabbed or the game is not focused.

for the game to run you have to alter the unity player file.

first cd the location you installed the game, then go into the Genshin Impact game folder located inside of Genshin impact.

then in that folder run this script

#! /bin/bash

dd if=<(echo -ne "\xc3") of=UnityPlayer.dll bs=1 seek=$((0x0148BDD0)) conv=notrunc
dd if=<(echo -ne "\xc3\xf5") of=UnityPlayer.dll bs=1 seek=$((0x0148C420)) conv=notrunc
dd if=<(echo -ne "\x31\xed") of=UnityPlayer.dll bs=1 seek=$((0x01B30933)) conv=notrunc

the game should run as normal.

Why is the game rated as gold even though the test log says the workaround didn't work?

You're right, fixed.
Kernel-level anticheat
by Akihito Mikazuki on Thursday October 15th 2020, 12:32
Hello, this game will not run currently because MiHoYo has implemented a kernel-level anticheat that cannot be emulated by Wine currently. There is possibly a workaround *that I have not tested*, wine-eac, although last I heard it can run games at a whopping 1 FPS.
