GE-Proton 8-15 release fixes Mafia Definitive Edition

By - | Views: 29,082

Not one to be left out of the updating festivities it seems, Glorious Eggroll has dropped GE-Proton 8-15. This version makes a few changes but honestly it's a smaller update than 8-14 was. The biggest news here is for fans of Mafia Definitive Edition but here's the full rundown:

  • Upstream proton symstore fixes added
  • dxvk updated to git
  • vkd3d-proton updated to git
  • proton-wine updated to bleeding edge
  • protonfixes: added update to remove no longer needed mafia DE launcher workaround, fix physx install on mafia DE (thanks Bitwolfies)

You can check out how to download GE-Proton below. However we must stress that this is not an official version of Proton from Valve. As such it's not recommended to be used unless it's to fix a specific game, like Mafia Definitive Edition.

Text Guide to install GE-Proton:

  • Download
    • Desktop: head to the official website, scroll down and pick your favourite download option either AppImage or Flathub.
    • Steam Deck: simply download ProtonUp-Qt from Discover in Desktop Mode (Steam Button -> Power - Switch to Desktop).
  • Load ProtonUp-Qt.
  • Make sure it's set to Steam at the top and select to install GE-Proton.
  • Reload Steam to update the compatibility layer list.
  • In Steam:
    • Desktop: right click a game and go to Properties.
    • Steam Deck: find the game in your library, go to the little cog on the right and then select Properties.
  • Compatibility menu -> Tick the box, select GE-Proton from the drop-down

A humble Steam Deck owner and fledgling Linux user in general. I've always been interested in Linux replacing Windows as the primary PC gaming OS. But it was always a mess of frustration, drivers, and not knowing which kernel was best. When SteamOS3 and Steam Deck hit the scene however, I realized the true potential of Linux as a gaming platform.
