DXVK: no

Output debugging info: yes

I had the same issue and changed Epic Game Store to use fshack-7.2 and it works (mostly) fine now.

This version of lutris: lutris-ge-lol-7.0-2-x86_64 is made exclusively for league of legends use another version of wine

Same bug with /home/user/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-fshack-7.2-x86_64/bin/wine

The debug blob is really difficult to read. You might see if any useful information is seen if the game is run in a terminal:

  • Right-click game
  • Click “Configure”
  • Click “System Options”
  • Enable “Run in a terminal”

I haven’t run the Epic Store in a while, so I started it after reading your message. It made me update, and so I let it. It took quite a few minutes on a black screen with a blue bar at the bottom… so long that I was tempted to close it, but then it did eventually open, so there is hope. It can work.

I’m using

...\epic-games-store/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/Launcher/Portal/Binaries/Win32/EpicGamesLauncher.exe

with arguments
