Valve contractors and CodeWeavers continue tweaking VKD3D-Proton for Direct3D 12 over Vulkan with another fresh update out now, and a small update to add it into Proton Experimental.
Note: if you wish to learn more about Steam Play, Proton and more do check out our dedicated area.
Just recently VKD3D-Proton released the big 2.3 update adding in early support for DXR (DirectX Raytracing) amongst other things. As always with complicated software, it came with some lingering issues that the 2.3.1 update cleans up:
- Improved support for older Wine and Vulkan Loader versions.
- Fix blocky shadows in Horizon Zero Dawn.
- Fix the install script failing on Wine installs not built with upstream vkd3d.
- Fix minor dxil translation issues.
To go along with this Proton Experimental, the special testing version of Proton that's separate from normal versions got a small tweak also that simply updates VKD3D-Proton.
