Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

The Epic Games Store comes to the game manager Lutris, giving you an even better place to deal with your game library split across many different stores. On top of that it also supports Steam for Windows as a game source, for those titles you can't get working directly through Proton.

Now this means that Lutris can help you manage Epic Games Store, GOG, Humble Store, Steam (Linux/Windows), DOSBox, Emulators and more. Even more helpful is that Lutris games can be launched from Steam, you can disable 3rd party services you don't want, there's support now for DXVK-NVAPI and DLSS and VKD3D is now an option by itself.

Even more came with this release like the ability to use AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) with compatible versions of Wine, gamescope is an option, Esync was enabled by default, Dolphin was added as a game source, installers for GOG were improved, an improved monitor for your Steam games and much more.

Sounds like this is one of the biggest releases of the open source app yet.

Quoting: dubigrasuplus a Wine tray icon floating around needlessly.

That specific thing depends on the desktop you use.... I use Cinnamon and I don't have that problem.

That doesn't mean it should happen, my DE isn't some obscure untested DE. Is still the second most used one.
And again, this is happening only on EGS games.

This update seems to have broken the setup for ZDoom games. I think what's happening for me is that the runner no longer respects the settings in the 'Game options' for ZDoom games.

This means that the WAD file and any PWADs are not being read from the game's installation location with Lutris. Instead it is looking directly in the ~/.config/gzdoom folder. This results in none of my ZDoom games launching. As a test, I dropped in my hexen.wad file into ~/.config/gzdoom and now all of my ZDoom games will launch Hexen.

This also results in the runner looking for any savegame folder in the wrong location, and same with the soundfonts.

It does seem that the 'Runner Options' setting for the game works, since it picks up the gzdoom.ini file properly. So with only the hexen.wad file in the ~/.config/gzdoom folder, when I start Doom, it will run Hexen but with my gzdoom.ini setup from Doom.

Anybody else having this problem?
