Steam Play Proton has a new build up needing testing with a 5.13-6 RC

By - | Views: 15,598

Ready for the next release of the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer? Proton 5.13-6 has hit the Release Candidate stage so it's time to give it a run.

If you're not clear on what Proton and Steam Play are, be sure to check out our constantly updated dedicated page. It's a special compatibility layer for running Windows games and apps from Steam on Linux.

What's new and improved in Proton 5.13-6? Here's the currently tentative changelog which might change as it goes through QA:

  • Fix No Man's Sky in VR mode
  • Fix Cyberpunk 2077 world sound issues
  • Fix black screen on focus loss in DOOM Eternal (and Disgaea removed in rc3)
  • Nioh 2 is now playable
  • Fix sound in Dark Sector
  • Fix controller support and hotplugging in Yakuza Like a Dragon, Subnautica, DOOM (2016), Virginia
  • Better support for PlayStation 5 controllers
  • Fix voice chat failure in Deep Rock Galactic
  • Fix Need for Speed (2015) hang on launch
  • More fixes for game input being active while the Steam overlay is up

How to access it and test? In your Steam Library search for Proton 5.13, then right click on it and go to Properties and then to the Betas tab to select the "next" beta like the below picture. It will not show up as a new version to select in your list of Proton versions as it's a Beta on the 5.13 release.

If you do have new issues you can report it on the official Proton GitHub in this special ticket.

Haven't played NMS in a long time, maybe it's about time to replay and even check how it performs now in VR

I'm also kinda interested in this one, though I mostly play with friends and we use Mumble as voice chat. But maybe DRG has some nice other features, e.g. the ingame voice of Elite: Dangerous is the most atmospheric way to play that game.

After opting for "next" in "Betas" tab should I've 5.13-6 in my specific proton versions list? I've only 5.13-5 and "Proton Experimental" (both of them were already available for me as usable specific proton versions, I was already using 5.13-5 for some games)... I'm a bit confused...

It does not change versioning, as it's a Beta on the current version.

Okay, that makes sense! Thx!

Ok this is getting a bit confusing for me. So this is a beta for a stable version. We also got "experimental" - is that one even more ahead/bleeding edge? Or a completely different branch?

In other words - if I run experimental, do I then already have the stuff found in this beta? Reason I ask is also because I feel pretty sure that I saw the "Fix Cyberpunk 2077 world sound issues" fix mentioned in the last experimental version (that was out quite a while ago)?

Experimental is its own thing, treat all versions differently.

Yeah seems like it. Messy.

why disgaea is striked?
ok, tried to open here and nothing, i was hoping that they fixed the fullscreen bug, looks like they fixed it by making the game not boot anymore.
