A little look over ProtonDB reports for Steam Play in August 2019

Posted by , | Views: 7,735

Another month has come and go and so ProtonDB, the super handy unofficial tracker for Steam Play compatibility ratings has released another data dump.

Looking to get started with Steam Play? Be sure to check our previous beginners guide.

Once again, here's a quick look over some points shown in the data. August had a total of 3,848 reports sent in with ProtonDB showing a total of 56,345 reports overall. From that, ProtonDB is currently reporting 6,129 "games work" which ProtonDB base on those with at least one gold rating or higher.

Let's do something a little differently for August and start our dive by taking a look at the top 20 most rated games across the month. Sorted by total number of ratings, while also showing how many were Platinum or Gold to give you a good idea how they run overall.

Name Total Plat Gold
No Man's Sky 118 28 30
Warframe 48 4 28
Grand Theft Auto V 47 18 21
Path of Exile 29 12 7
DOOM 27 25 2
Age of Wonders: Planetfall 27 0 15
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 27 23 1
Fallout 4 24 0 9
Elite Dangerous 23 0 16
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition 22 1 9
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition 21 0 0
FINAL FANTASY XIV Online 18 2 14
BeamNG.drive 17 3 5
Remnant: From the Ashes 17 0 1
GRID 2 16 0 6
Paladins 16 1 1
Quake Champions 15 7 3
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 15 10 3
Squad 14 7 2
MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD 14 3 7

No Man's Sky had an absolutely massive update recently with a ton of new and expanded features so it's naturally top of the list. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a brand new release, one hotly anticipated by strategy game fans so it's not exactly surprising to see it there.

What games have sadly had a number of broken reports through August? If it has a high number, it's likely one to avoid for now until a later version of Proton may fix it.

Name Borked (broken)
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition 23
Age of Wonders: Planetfall 9
Metal Wolf Chaos XD 5
New Frontier 3
Telling Lies 3
KILL la KILL -IF 2
MotoGP19 2
Freefall 3050AD 2
Daymare: 1998 2
Blair Witch 2

I'll admit I'm personally quite sad that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition doesn't yet work with Steam Play. AoE is a game I have such fond memories of playing at a grandparents house, being able to play that smoothly on Linux would be pretty sweet don't you think?

Now onto the brighter side again of Steam Play. What games only first being reported in August had some good reports on them (Gold+)?

Name Total good
Age of Wonders: Planetfall 15
DARQ 8
Secret Neighbor Beta 6
Minoria 6
Age of Empires II (2013) 6
UNDEFEATED 6
SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions 4
Interstellar Space: Genesis 4
Hentai Mosaique Vip Room 3
Hentai Mosaique Puzzle 3
Swords & Souls: Neverseen 3
Legends of Aria 3
Train Sim World 2020 3
2MD VR Football 2
VR Flush 2

Hopefully some of you found that interesting. May have more stats to come in a few days, after I decide what else to take a look at. If you wish to look at the data yourself, it's on GitHub.

If you wish to make viewing ratings easier, there are some web browser plugins you can install. There's the Firefox plugin ProtonDB for Steam which adds the rating to store pages. Additionally, there's also the Augmented Steam plugin for Firefox and Chrome which adds a handy link to the ProtonDB entry but it doesn't show ratings yet, it does however have a lot of extras that you might find useful anyway.

What have you been testing out with Steam Play in the last month or so? Do let us know your thoughts in the comments.

It's been neat trying D9VK with different games; even more so when I realized it only applied to DirectX-9 games and wasn't just a magical 'make game better' program :B Can finally play Alan Wake proper, and it looks damn good for it's age

Edit: Oop, and can't forget Resident Evil 4; was waiting for the black textures bug to be fixed for ages!

Augmented Steam does show ratings. For example, if you look at the page for Staxel (https://store.steampowered.com/app/405710/Staxel/) you can see "ProtonDB Rating: borked".

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan

a little to expensive for a 4h long game, but it went to my watchlist

I'm assuming Warframe's Gold is because you need to use

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xaudio2_7=n,b" %command%

to make sure the sound works well. Other than that it runs really well and looks great. It's a fantastic game to try out, since it's free-to-play, and generally not disgusting with monetisation.

I've just installed the extension, but apart from the ProtonDb links (which i've had to enable in the preferences), i can't see anything proton related ("ctrl-f -> 'proton' " returns just one match, the link to the protondb page)
Using it on firefox, where is it supposed to be?

Thanks!

I did test before writing, it does not have the feature. There is an open request for it: https://github.com/tfedor/AugmentedSteam/issues/255

I'm really confused seeing Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition on there since according to its Steam page it doesn't release till November 14th. How are (that many) people playing it already? Too bad if it doesn't work though, I was looking forward to it.

It's the predecessor, not the sequel. The first one already has a Definitive Edition. The second one has an 'HD Remaster', but is getting a Definitive Edition as well in the future. Yes, it's a bit confusing

This, the key is the "(2013)" in the name.
