    [TOOL] Launcher + Marketplace downloader for Linux

    Hello,
    I'm using Linux (Ubuntu 17.10 version), so I had some problems with marketplace, wasn't able to download assets, since Epic Games Launcher is working only on Windows/MAC.
    So I've decided to look for some other ways, how to download it.
    I have found this project: https://github.com/Allar/ue4-mp-downloader
    Researched it and thought to make one, with GUI and couple more implementations, so I've somehow managed to make it.
    It may not work 100%, sometimes downloads stops at item manifest, but stopping the download and starting again helps!
    Some photos for it:

    So in end, I thought maybe there will be people, who will find some use of it and decided to share this system.

    I have tested it only on my pc (Ubuntu 17.10 + Java 1.8). So I'm not responsible, if it will not work, you have full source, so you are free to fix / rebuild it yourself.

    This is the link to the github: Compiled version with shell script to start is in github repository "Compiled" folder.

    Feel free to comment and have a good use of it!

    Yay, more Linux love!

    Unfortunately, I don't run Linux on this machine at the moment due to my CPU lacking the necessary tech for proper virtualisation.
    That said, all the other machines in the family do, so...

    In any case, thank you!

      Nice one, cheers dude! Will you be able to keep maintaining this?
      (Seems Epic make changes to the Marketplace setup over time).

      Aye, looks like Epic's auth process changed ever so slightly. Problem with writing unofficial third party code, heh. I've updated the repo and instructions in the first post, you should be able to re-install via npm to get the latest version and it /should/ work. As for Learn assets and other things, I believe the issue is that the manifest files for these work slightly differently and I haven't had time to isolate and correct for these differences. Maybe some day.
      Is there anyway after new years could you fix your downloader?
      Seems like something changed again. I can log in, and browse my items, but trying to download gives me an error:

        I will try my best, but can't promise that I will be 100% up to date and that I will be always able to update it.
        I'm using it myself, so it's originally in need to have it working for myself, so when something will appear, I will try to fix it.
        Also, full source is on GIT, so everyone can contribute changes or fixes to git all the time!
        PS. Thanks for you words!

                Hey thanks for this! Unfortunately, it's not letting me login. Keeps telling me I've got the credentials wrong.

                      Thanks a bunch for this. Not a huge fan of Java but this is a really good tool. PLEASE maintain it! I know Epic likes alienating the Linux community in every way possible.

                        Just tried this today. Lets me log in and see the marketplace, but it doesn't show me anything in Owned Assets.

                          Hi, it's weird.
                          It showed "part of my asset downloaded" before.
                          But not what I bought, which is kind of terrifying...
                          Anyone experience this as well?

                            Great job! Works fine from source on Arch Linux (after activating 2-factor-authentication).
