DXVK 1.3.4 is out with a few quick fixes, plus more updates to Proton GE

By - | Views: 8,704

Two bits of Wine related news for you to peruse over this fine Sunday evening, as both DXVK and Proton GE have new releases available.

First up: the DXVK 1.3.4 maintenance release was just put out to solve a couple urgent issues. One of these is a problem with Winelib builds and the Wine 4.15 release and there's a possible memory leak fixed with games using Direct2D.

On top of that the game Control has "d3d11.allowMapFlagNoWait" enabled to improve GPU utilization and Quantum Break has a performance issue fixed for NVIDIA and older AMD drivers.

The other project with a new release is Proton-4.15-GE-4, the unofficial version of Proton for Steam Play that pulls in a bunch of extras. Released today adding in some needed hotfixes for mf_install, an issue with the protonfixes import, the Warframe launcher should be fully working now with a wininet patch from upstream backported, the raw input patch was re-enabled and some updates for gamepad/mouse input.

As a quick reminder, if you wish to use Proton GE you need to download the release archive from GitHub. Extract it and place it into:


The "compatibilitytools.d" folder might not exist, you will need to make it. Also .steam is a hidden folder, usually pressing CTRL + H will show/hide hidden folders.

Once done, restart Steam if you had it open. You can then force it into a game! Right click the game, go to Properties and then it's at the bottom:

I keep hearing how good "Control" is, does anyone who owns it have a possible update on performance?

Before someone ask
For cinematics in Darksiders warmastered edition:
- install proton 4.15-GE
- install winetricks (for me winetricks install also wine and other stuff)
- choose proton 4.15-GE for the game
- install the game o click start
- wait till the magic is done (depends on the speed of your line)
- enjoy

@Luke_Nukem On my 3570k @ 4.3Ghz plus a GTX 970 and 8Gb of RAM, every options on Low in 1080p, I've got between 25 and 30 fps. Pretty demanding game, maybe it's time to upgrade...
