Warframe Installer creation is restricted


#1

Why is warframe installer creation restricted? Its been like this for quite some time.


#2

Too many people try editing working installers and end up breaking them so some mods restrict installers. There will be a way to just restrict individual installers, rather than the entire page, so if you want to fork, edit, or make a new one you’ll be able to do that some time soon.


#3

Basically @cxf said, I’ll also add that changes for locked games should be discussed in detail with the maintainer. We lock games that satisfy all these requirements:

  • They break easily and often with updates (LoL, Warframe, WoW, …)
  • They have an experienced maintainer (for Warframe, you’ll want to talk to @GloriousEggroll)
  • They are very popular, moderating changes becomes a burden
  • The current installer is known to work for most configurations
  • Contributions are mostly from inexperienced users and break the installer more often than not.

Any change to the installer can still be requested and if approved will be added by a moderator.

good joke…

warframe

at least it was “just” an issue with the lutris version i used (apparently execute was broken in the latest release) and upgrading seemed to help a bit. still some issues but those i can sort out.


#5

I think the Warframe Installer has to be updated! I had troubles that were fixed by other install/run scripts.

The basis (installing, updating, winetricks) seems pretty solid, but something is broken. It kept giving me Evolution Engine errors before login screen, whereas another script ran just fine.
