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:
