Proton GE has another new release out with patches for GTA V and lots of updates

Posted by , | Views: 13,465

Proton GE, the unofficial and updated build of Proton for Steam Play has another big new release out. To help those who can't wait for Valve/CodeWeavers to update the official Proton or you need some extra fixes.

With Proton-4.19-GE-1 now available it includes updated builds of DXVK, D9VK, FAudio and Vkd3d. On top of that, it's also pulled in patches to help with GTA V and the Rockstar Launcher, a patch to help with Origin client downloads, patches to fix Skyrim SkyUI status effect icons, patches to help Mortal Kombat 11 run (although online matches won't work) and more.

As a reminder, installing a custom Steam Play compatibility tool like Proton GE is actually pretty easy. Download the release and extract the contents of it into this folder:

~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/

For the newer Linux gamer: a folder with a dot at the start is hidden. Press CTRL + H to toggle hidden files and folders on/off.

Reload Steam, right click on a game and go to Properties and then at the bottom it's shown here allowing you to select it. That really is all you need to do.

You can see more about Proton GE on the GitHub page.

This is so nice!! I'll try this with Rockstar Launcher.

uPlay (Ubisoft) Savegame cloud sync is also working with this proton?

Currently the tarball is broken. When I open it I get an empty archive.

Does anyone else have it?

I've started using the Glorious Eggroll stuff quite a bit. It's a really nice alternative to the official branches - it seems to do a better job with titles that need the mono runtime. It's a great project. And downloading a tar, unpacking it into a directory is the kind of "install" I can get behind. Really simple, really effective.

Woops! I don't see it though? I remember it being there before now that you've said it but it doesn't seem to appear on mobile.

Not sure how people miss it, the text is in bold before you get to the comments section...and yes on mobile too in exactly the same place.
