  • Fixed freezes in Dinogen Online.
  • Improved memory usage when playing videos in 32bit games.
  • Fixed missing cursor in IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition.
  • Improved memory usage of Burnout Paradise Remastered and lowered the chances of crashing.
  • Fixed video playback in One Finger Death Punch.
  • Fixed Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit crashing when reaching first boss.

See all in the changelog. It will show up as an update for Proton Experimental in your Steam Library, if you have it installed. Otherwise you can install it manually by just searching for it in your Steam Library on Linux / Steam Deck.

If you missed it, there was also an update last week that improved Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Noita mods.

Ahh nice. so Farlight 84 doesn't require GE-Proton and WINE_DO_NOT_CREATE_DXGI_DEVICE_MANAGER=1 anymore
The game is starting to die though, just around 2000 players playing now. Used to be like around 10k few months ago iirc.
