ProtonUp-Qt 2.7.7 Adds NorthstarProton and Steam-Play-None Compatibility Tools, ProtonDB Ratings to Game List
We’ve got a sweet new release for the excellent ProtonUp-Qt app, for managing all of your compatibility tools for Steam, Lutris, and more.
When viewing your game list, you can now check the ProtonDB ranking with the simple click of a button. Super convenient!
NorthstarProton and Steam-Play-None have been added as compatibility tools. The former is “a Proton build based on TKG’s Proton-tkg build system to run the Northstar client on Linux and SteamDeck, along with some enhancements out-of-the-box.” It’s basically the runner for Titanfall 2. The latter forces games with native clients to use said client, even if Valve recommends Proton.
If you don’t have an Internet connection, there will be an indicator. Or, at least there should be. I tested this and the window just says “Fetching releases…”
Finally, game list display should now work with the Flatpak version of Steam and after a recent Steam update.
Important: in order to see the new compatibility tools, you will need to check off “Enable advanced mode” from the About window!
Special thanks to sonic2kk – who is also a SteamTinkerLaunch contributor – for making this release possible.
