Want the Unreal skins but I don't want to re-install the game on Epic


Question

Unfortunately, there is no apparent work around for Steam users. The good thing is, once you download the game through the Epic Store, and claim the bundle (is free), website says you only need to do it once, so i assume you keep your stuff even while playing on steam, and then you can say goodbye to the epic launcher. Im a huge fan of the original Unreal Tournament, so im gonna go through the hurdle of downloading game through epic.

As i was typing this, i am installing the epic launcher and downloading warframe. Hopefully i only need to do this once and then go back to Steam with my free stuff

Please keep us updated, since I kinda want to just get immediately rid of EGS if I can just use the skins on the Steam version.

Will do, my PC is being quite fast tonight, so is gonna finish in just a couple of minutes, and i will update.

It may be taking some time to deliver, but i already installed warframe with epic, claimed the bundle, but i have yet to see it in my inventory.

Conclusion: everyone is having the same problem, bundles are not being delivered. Ill give it some time.

Rather than downloading all the files again, I copied the steam installation into the download folder of the epic store version and then performed a verify. Hopefully saved myself from downloading it all again.

The only thing that should change  between steam and epic is the loader / installer. Claimed the pack but nothing so far for me either.

I just finished the Warframe loader built in verification and it says it's good to go and didn't download anything. Although I deleted the warframe.x64.exe to force it to download it again through epic.

And yay I got the bundle message right after opening just now.

Logged into steam version - stuff still there.

So basically, it's somewhat similar to the Discord Launcher technique, but instead of doing it through your files and settings, it's through the EGS Launcher?

What I did:

  1. Install Warframe on EGS to whatever folder it wants. This will only install ~80MB, basically just the launcher.
  2. Copy the contents of your Steam installation from the .../steamapps/common/Warframe/ folder into the .../Warframe/Downloads/ folder created by EGS. There should be folders like /Lotus/, /Public/, the Warframe.x64.exe, etc.
  3. Run Warframe from the EGS launcher. It will download a few MB and then launch.
  4. You'll get a notification when you log in that the bundle has been applied to your account.

When you're done just uninstall it from EGS and clean out the folders.

If you're tight on space you can do what I did and cut/paste the Steam files instead of copy/paste. This will be marginally faster, just be careful not to uninstall from EGS without first moving your folders back to Steam or you'll need to redownload when you launch normally.

been trying to do this for last hour, i cant seem to run the EGS launcher....

I had some super old ass version from launching it years ago. I used the 'Get Epic Games' button in the upper right corner to fetch a newer installer and updated. The old one wasn't cooperating for me, probably because I had W7 back then on this PC and the migration to W10 and other hardware upgrades were confusing things.

I have already installed it with Epic store and now when I try to log in through the Epic launcher they are asking me for  the dreaded email verification code and that SUCKER just won't come in my inbox.

God how I hate this system sometimes. I made a customer support letter regarding this. It is not the first time I had this issue.

I thought they fixed this issue with the email verification code not arriving.

Are people still not seeing the skins in their inventory? I got the center screen message prompt in Warframe and I see in EGL that the purchase was made (free) but I don't see a email or the items in my inventory or on the guns like the Stahlta. In Appearance there is no skin choice menu.

I have the three guns and weapon skins from setting up Warframe in Epic last night.

Today after hotfix-29.5.8 I let the update load on Warframe via Epic then started Warframe from Epic but no Synkra Syandana in my inventory. 

----------

Was the  Synkra Syandana for all platforms?

I was able to get the syandana by launching from EGS again. Same process as before. I'm sure you could contact support about it, but it seems to be solvable on your own.

I still had it in the Downloaded folder from last night, after starting Warframe twice through Epic after hotfix 29.5.8 syandana still not there.

It's not giving it to me running it via EGS, so support it is.

Bummer. I did a fresh install/copy from Steam, so maybe that's part of it. ETA: This was maybe an hour ago.

I did this method for my install last night so I have an Epic Warframe without touching my Steam Warframe.

I see you did a post like mine but more detail above in this thread, to try and help out players. :thumbup:
