Another smaller update is now available for Proton Experimental, the special version of Proton that has all the latest fixes first for you to try. Info: Proton is the compatibility layer you can use on Linux and Steam Deck to run Windows games.

For the June 14th 2022 update, this is newly playable:

  • Karmaflow The Rock Opera Videogame - Act I & Act II

You will find these have their video playback fixed:

  • POSTAL: Brain Damaged
  • Turbo Overkill
  • Slayers X Demo

Plus these titles got specific fixes too:

  • Fix The Ball displaying error message on the first launch.
  • Fix SCP: Secret Laboratory crashing on launch after a game update.
  • Fix Bloons TD 6 crashing on touch input.

An additional change is that Proton Experimental will use "copy on write for prefixes on supported files systems". Update: plus, all changes from Proton 7.0-3 that was released later.

The changelog can be seen here at any time.

Sorry, probably a stupid question:
Why do the videos from Soul Calubur VI work on the Steam Deck but not on my normal Linux/Steam PC?

You might need to move / delete the prefix also check the proton version then run it.

For what it's worth, I just installed the game under Linux Mint XFCE and first-launching it with Proton Experimental it seems to work perfectly with videos. I did not try with any other proton version, as the Experimental one is currently set to default in my steam settings.

Different Proton version or a stale video cache maybe?
