What works

If the workaround is applied everything worked so far I have tested, but I didn't try to buy anything.

What does not

The launcher sometimes freezes when downloading updates, if that happens just close it and open again.

If it is not able to extract the downloaded update follow the workaround.

In game, if played fullscreen and the window loses focus (alt+tab) it may not be able to detect the mouse and keyboard inputs again when focus return, to fix that you can enable virtual desktop on winecfg.


It is recommended to install DXVK.

If the launcher download the update but is not able to extract it, close the launcher and do it yourself then open it again:

dir="$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Genshin Impact/Genshin Impact Game"
unzip "$dir/" -d "$dir"
rm "$dir/"
cat > "$dir/config.ini" <<\EOF
