Immortals: Fenyx Rising came to Steam a few days ago. However, it has evidently faced quite a few issues for both Steam Desk and Linux desktop users. Namely, the occasional pop-up of the Ubisoft Connect overlay, the keyboard and mouse configuration being applied by default when using a gamepad, garbled audio, and black line flickering on the grass rendering.

Fortunately, GE-Proton is here to once again save the day. Well, at least, partly. GE-Proton7-43 should fix “cutscene audio skips” and “garbled output.” I haven’t tested the game myself, so there’s likely the overlay pop-up issues and black line flickering remaining. But it’s a step in the right direction to making this game more playable.

The Witcher 3 – presumably in reference to the recent DX12 upgrade – no longer crashes with hairworks enabled. So in theory all you would need to disable on NVIDIA is the AO.

For other game-specific fixes, the launcher for Baldur’s Gate 3 is skipped, and the game uses Vulkan by default. A fix was added for Gears 5 in regards to the hang after pressing the Enter key on the logo screen. The game drive option for Elder Scrolls Online should now properly be applied. This fixes the installation, but keep in mind you’ll still need to press the Space key on the black window. The Protonfix for Fall Guys was updated – it no longer needs the .exe workaround.

Besides this, the usual set of software tools got updated to the latest git or bleeding edge. This would include DXVK, VKD3D, and Wine. Upstream Proton changes have also been imported.
