Steam Workshop Warframe TennoGen Tool
This thread contains information regarding known issues, workarounds, and update notes for the Warframe TennoGen tool.
The Warframe TennoGen tool is located in the Steam tools library. You may access the Steam tools library by hovering over LIBRARY near the top of the Steam client, then selecting TOOLS.
Under the tools category in your Steam library, double click the Warframe TennoGen tool to install it.
Alternatively, copy and paste this Steam url into your browser: steam://install/396050
============================== Known Issues and Workarounds: 1. Grey screen and non-responsive buttons when opening the Warframe TennoGen tool.
The tool uses an embedded Chromium browser to drive the viewer and uploader UI. Your system may not support the level of WebGL that is required to display the viewer content. Ensure you have the latest video card drivers installed for your system.
The requirements for webgl in our application are listed on this page in the Chrome section: https://www.khronos.org/webgl/wiki/BlacklistsAndWhitelists
If updating video card drivers does not work, a possible solution is to add --ignore-gpu-blacklist to the command line arguments of the tool in Steam. 2. The poly counts in the bottom left corner of the viewer are not accurate. This will be patched in the next release.
Fixed in build id 844894. 3. Error 15 or error 2 when uploading items.
If you run into this error, it can most likely be resolved by reinstalling the TennoGen tool. If that does not solve the error, make a post here and we'll try to assist you.
