I’ve recently switched from Manjaro to EndeavourOS. Previously I used versions of Ubuntu, and up until now the game had a fairly good performance. I had to adjust some in-game settings for a smoother experience but overall nothing game breaking.
Now that I installed EOS, however, I cannot seem to get the game to run at all. I haven’t changed any of my hardware. Is anyone currently playing the game? Have you had any issues?
The game does start, and runs completely fine for about a minute, and then suddenly crashes and opens up the hardware failure site (https://www.warframe.com/hardwarefail) in the browser. I cannot connect the crash to anything specific, it doesn’t seem to matter what I do in-game, after about a minute, it just closes, regardless of anything. There are no obvious signs before the crash, the game runs just fine, good fps, no lags, nothing out of the ordinary, really.
I tried looking at ProtonDB to see what others may have, I even tried matching similar builds, tried different Proton or Proton-GE versions, even downloaded older ones but the issue is still exactly the same. With every launch command or proton version, the game crashes.
On Manjaro, I could simply install the Steam version and run the game with stock Valve Proton, no other modifications were necessary.
I tried other games to see if it could truly be a hardware issue — I regularly play Dota 2 with no issues whatsoever, but from the Proton ones I tried Layers of Fear and Tomb Raider and they both ran smoothly with no problems whatsoever. The former ran with zero changes, with Tomb Raider I only changed the Proton version but otherwise that was perfect too. (And, again, even Warframe runs smoothly up until the minute mark.)
What could I be missing here? Raiding old forum posts about this specific crash yielded very old posts that were no use to me unfortunately.
