Steam Play Proton 4.11-2 is out, upgrading DXVK and FAudio

Posted by , | Views: 11,634

Valve along with CodeWeavers today issued a small and focused update to Proton, the software behind Steam Play.

Proton 4.11-2 arrives just over a week after the major update that 4.11 was and it includes these changes:

  • Update DXVK to v1.3.2.
  • Update FAudio to 19.08.
  • Update wine-mono to 4.9.2. This is known to fix DARK and DLC quest.
  • For high framerate displays, also report a 60 FPS mode, for older games that require it.
  • Earth Defense Force 5 and Earth Defense Force 4.1 will no longer freeze when prompted to input text.

Since DXVK was previously at version 1.3, this should hopefully be quite a nice improvement for various games and performance. As always, you may find the full changelog here.

Do let us know in the comments how you get on.

Just tried Earth Defense Force 4.1 and yes it works now for the first time out of the box. Good to see how quick Valve releases updates for Proton!

Interesting side effect: looks like the steam client is aware of all available Proton versions, no matter if a particular version is installed or not. At least I could select 4.11-2, but it wasn't installed at all (4.2 was installed). So a game with force-selection 4.11 wasn't starting anymore, and I was pretty confused. Until I realized I had to install it manually from the tools section.

That's interesting, probably a bug. In my experience when I select a not-installed Proton version, it'll download it before starting the game.

I'm particularly interested in the updated Faudio, if this fixes the audio issue in Fallout 4 with the sound sometimes freezing. Luckily not too often, but still really annoying when it does.

How does Killing Floor 2 look lately?
ACO is tracking a bug that happen even when
using llvm. That's why I asked. I don't own
the game

I'll try it out later tonight. I don't have high hopes but I'd love for that one to start working.

Edit: Nope, still crashes immediately after trying to start from the launcher.

I know there is a work arround with play on linux. But to play it out of the box without extra "wine steam" would be just awesome!

For me for the last Proton versions the performances and stability is always the same (even the looong launching times, sadly). About ACO I cant be of help because I am using a nvidia card.
