Proton 3.16-8 beta is out for Steam Play with DXVK 1.0 and game fixes

By - | Views: 26,679

Just before the weekend appears, we have the brand new Proton 3.16-8 beta available for Valve's Steam Play. This release includes some mighty fine fixes and updates.

The major upgrade this time around, is bumping DXVK to the 1.0 release. DXVK 1.0 had quite a lot of improvements all around, check the changelog for that here if you're interested. The gist of it is that you should see even more games become compatible and there's some performance improvements too.

There's also a very handy fix for Unity games, where a lot of them had the mouse pull down towards the bottom-right of the screen which should hopefully no longer happen.

For those playing online games, a networking fix also made it into this release with Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet specifically mentioned but others should see improvements too.

Steamwork API support was also improved for both old and new games, with Battlerite mentioned directly.

Finally, they noted "fixes" (they weren't specific) for DX9 games on certain hardware which includes titles like Final Fantasy XI.

As always, find the full changelog here.

Quoting: liamdaweSeems they forgot to update the version string, still shows up as 3.16-7 even though it's updated.
That's a bug, you should restart steam to update version string in settings.

Speaking of bugs, one thing I'd like fixed that I noticed lately (and weirdly also affects Windows) is that when you have Steam running and it shows up in the system tray on Gnome (with the top icon extension) it doesn't show it's running in Gnome's icon bar/dock. Same thing happens in Windows 10's task bar. Icon is there to launch, but it doesn't show it as running, but is in the system tray.

My steam updated CSGO and it updated correctly. Then it updated steamplay but had an error so I cleared the update cache and it restarted and steamplay was now showing 3-16.8 on my steam.

Mouse issue in The Forest is fixed finally! Had to use regular wine to play this because of that issue. But yeah 3.16-8 fixes it

Steam team made big progress for Far Cry 3, the game is now considered as "Silver". It's not perfect yet, you have to disable Uplay overlay and the game did not exit cleanly, you have to kill manually Uplay and some other process. But with Proton 3.16-8 the game is playable in Directx11 mode.

Wow, sure enough, Google Translate tells me that your name means "lullaby". I didn't know that...!
