Proton Experimental Update Adds Several Fixes to Launchers and Adds Network Video Support for a Few Titles
The same day the first batch of Q3 emails for the Steam Deck go out also happens to be the day we get an update to Proton Experimental, just a little over a week after the previous one. This update mostly focuses on bug fixes, ranging from the following:
- the launcher for Final Fantasy XIV should no longer close if there isn’t enough space to download an update
- Elite Dangerous and other launchers should no longer exert strange behavior when using cloned displays
- Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies and Multiplayer should remain playable after connecting online
- Azur Lane: Crosswave should no longer hang on a black screen
- Chrono Trigger should no longer suffer from random crashing during cutscenes
In addition to these bug fixes, we also have improved video playback for Persona 4 Golden. There’s two new features that have been added:
- implement Vulkan other process rendering (used by nw.js games)
- implement network video support for The Good Life and VRChat
Don’t really know what the former does but I’m sure it’s good news for any game that uses nw.js.
See the patch notes on GitHub. Changes in bold are the ones that have been added in the latest update.
