Steam Play was updated again with Proton 4.2-2

By - | Views: 16,649

Things seem to be moving quite quickly with Steam Play lately, with another new version now available.

Proton 4.2-2 was released early this morning with these changes:

  • Corrected command line parameters for some games, including Wadjet Eye games like Blackwell Epiphany.
  • Fixed some games failing or crashing in certain locales like Turkish.
  • Updated FAudio to 19.03-25-g8105923.
  • Fixed a crash when alt-tabbing out of Deus Ex.
  • Restored previous .NET installer functionality.

You can find the changelog here any time.

Obviously this release is a lot smaller than others but not every release is going to be huge. The main point is how Valve and CodeWeavers are reacting quickly to user needs and issues that come up which is great.

Have you seen much improvements between Proton 3.16 and Proton 4.2? Do let us know in the comments.

Nice.
Sidequestion: Did anybody managed to get the game Deadpool working? Unfortunately there is no entry in the Protondb for it.

Update to 4.2 fixed for me the controller issue of Dragons Dogma. Works now out of the box. Before the controller moved always upwards left so hard to start the game and ingame spinned around the char.

I've tried, no joy. :<

Every update is appreciated, especially when even a minor could potentially effect a huge number of games, since Steam has roughly 25,000 games. Thanks Valve, we appreciate it!

Same question, what does that mean? .Net 3.5 installed without tweaks with this new Proton version?

It does not start Just Cause 3. But it runs fine with lutris (my son plays it with lutris).

Perhaps it will work with the next update. I'll be waiting, as I don't want to deal with lutris actually.

Really each to their own but its really simple to use i find i get it if you arent happy with linking your steam library but i prefer lutris over proton because i have more control over the configuration.
