Four DX12 titles should no longer crash on launch!
GE-Proton7-44 Adds HDR Patches for DXVK and VKD3D-Proton, Launcher Workaround for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
New update for GE-Proton is out! Wine has been updated to the latest bleeding edge and includes the Alt+Tab fix. Wine-staging has been rebased on the latest Proton-Wine bleeding edge. DXVK and VKD3D-Proton have both been updated to the latest git and includes the HDR patches. Proton imports upstream changes; it includes the prefix sync revert/fix. Protonfixes have been added for the following titles: Pentiment – workaround for the launch failure Stronghold HD/Crusader/Extreme – multiplayer fix Battle Fantia Revised Edition – framerate fix Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – launcher workaround See the patch notes on GitHub.
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-Proton7-42 Fixes Launcher for Secret World: Legends, Adds Protonfix for Skeleton Boomerang and Re-Volt
Today’s update to GE-Proton doesn’t seem too exciting, although we did get a few Protonfixes added for Skeleton Boomerang and Re-Volt. Protonfixes were removed for King of Fighters (no longer needs FPS cap) and Squad (no longer needs EAC workaround). A launcher fix was added for Secret World: Legends. Aside from that, everything else is updates. Wine staging has been rebased. DXVK-NVAPI, DXVK, VKD3D, and the “media converter” have been updated, although the patch notes don’t mention to what they’ve been updated to (presumably, they’ve all been updated to the latest git).
GE-Proton7-39 adds a freeze fix for Overwatch 2. Though GE-Proton is not meant to be used for games outside of Steam, this fix should help other games. Elder Scrolls Online now has the gamedrive option enabled by default (never heard of gamedrive, to be honest). Protonfixes have been removed for the following titles/launchers: Sonic Adventure 2 Far Cry 5 EAC – yup, apparently the game has EAC Origin The individual tools that make up GE-Proton have been updated to “latest bleeding edge” or “git”:
Today’s update to GE-Proton adds a Protonfix for UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection on systems that have more than 16 CPU cores. The Lost Legacy game in this collection has also received a tll.exe amd_ags_x64 override to allow the game to run. A save file fix was added for Persona 5 Strikers, and a shader compilation patch was added for Overwatch 2 (although apparently it’s for other games; Overwatch 2 isn’t available on Steam and the use of GE-Proton outside of said client is not recommended).
Good news for those of you who want to make use of FSR. The previous release of GE-Proton temporarily took the feature away. Just a few days later, FSR is now back, while retaining all the same updates as the previous version. Special thanks to Discord member OOOOOF123 for rebasing the FSR patch! As a refresher, GE-Proton7-36 came with the following: Protonfixes added for Shatterline, Halo Reach mod tools, and Ougon Musoukyoku NVAPI enablements and media-converter changes backported from upstream Proton DXVK, VKD3D-Proton, and Wine bleeding-edge updates See the patch notes on GitHub.
GE-Proton7-36 has imported the NVAPI enablements and media-converter changes from upstream Proton. In addition to updating DXVK, VKD3D-Proton, and Wine-Bleeding Edge, Protonfixes have been added to the following: Shatterline Halo Reach mod tools Ougon Musoukyoku But one feature in this update has been removed, at least for now: FSR. The reasoning, according to the patch notes, is as follows: The commit is important because it fixes some problems that were happening with winevulkan, but unfortunately it also patches in a lot of components that were already part of the FSR patch.
Remember that so-called “Quality of Life” update that 2K recently pushed out for the BioShock series? Remember how it added a launcher and as a result got review bombed on Steam? Remember how it broke Proton compatibility? Well, GE-Proton7-33 is here to the rescue. Yes, you’ll still have to deal with the launcher, but the games should now work. Not only this, but Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V have also received fixes, thanks to GE-Proton7-33 pulling in the latest changes from Wine.
Small update to GE-Proton today. Besides the usual components being upgraded to the latest git (dxvk, vkd3d-proton, wine), some other features have been added. Patch notes are as follows: protonfix for Flatout Ultimate Carnage (single player only) added – thanks Ranplayer Amazon games patch added (this is mainly for possible future compatibility, please use wine-ge for non-Steam games) wine-staging ddraw-Device_Caps and ddraw-version-check patchsets disabled in favor of new Proton ddraw changes.
