By - | Views: 17,245

Valve released a small and sweet update for Proton Experimental, fixing up more game issues. Here's what's changed for July 14th.

Changes:

  • Fixed New World not starting after a recent game update.
  • Fixed Aura: Fate of the Ages missing some audio cues.

This follows on from the update on July 8th, where Valve fixed a whole bunch of other issues.

The changelog can be found here.


How to change your Proton version:

Steam Deck:

  • Pick a game in your Library and head to the little cog icon on the right.
  • Click Properties, then Compatibility on the left.
  • Make sure the tickbox is done, then select Proton Experimental from the dropdown.

On a Linux desktop:

  • Right click a game, go to Properties.
  • Compatibility on the left.
  • Make sure the tickbox is done, then select Proton Experimental from the dropdown.

I wished the fixed Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY. To this day I still cannot play it.

The GOG version works with the stock wine (+DXVK) on Arch out of the box.

What's wrong? I replayed entire Batman Arkham series on Steam Deck, I don't remember any of them not working at all.

After the starter screen (with the settings) it crashes, shows a window with some error and closes. The next game, Arkham City works fine, but I had never managed to get Asylum to run, no matter which version of Proton I'm using. This have been like this since the appearance of Proton.

Can you be more specific? I don't remember if I had to do anything, but maybe I did... I have played Arkham Asylum long time ago, and last time I played it was on Steam Deck and that was also year ago.

Aura: Fates of The Ages! Now that's a blast from the past. That was one of my favorite point-and-click games as a kid.

I've always wanted to play the sequel (The Sacred Rings) but sadly its publisher went under and I could never find a digital copy of it.

I just copied it from the protondb, you are probably right. The command will tell you how to use it.

I get tempted to try New World every now and then. Anyone put some good time into it (20+ hours)? Although, with BG3 around the corner, I won't be starting an MMO anytime soon.
