Steam Play Proton 4.11-4 has been released into the wild

Posted by , | Views: 13,835

Get ready for another weekend full of testing games, as Valve and CodeWeavers have put out a fresh official build of Steam Play Proton for your pleasure.

Here's the highlights:

  • Improve behavior of PlayStation 4 controllers and controllers connected by Bluetooth.
  • More improvements to mouse capture and window focus loss behavior.
  • Farming Simulator 19 is now playable.
  • Fix some graphics issues in A Hat in Time and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
  • Update DXVK to v1.3.4
  • Update D9VK to 0.21-rc-p.
  • Update FAudio to 19.09.

As always, find the full changelog here.

Great to see another release, every update should bring it that step further towards supporting more and more games whose developers or publishers don't wish to support Linux officially.

Something also related, Jason Evangelho who writes for Forbes and runs the Linux For Everyone Podcast (which I'm a guest on sometimes) just finished recording an episode speaking to CodeWeavers. Keep an eye on their Twitter or website for the episode going up in a few days, should be an interesting one.

What will you be testing with Steam Play this weekend? Let us know in the comments.

AudiWhy do I not see 4.11-4. I am still on 4.11-3?
You need to restart Steam for the number to change, but as soon as you see the update completed you're using the last version.

You have a typo in the title. It should be released

F.UltraWill be testing Resident Evil 4 and Remnant: From the Ashes this weekend.

haven't tested RE4 yet, but RE5, RE7 and revelations 1 and 2 all of them work, RE7 needs the media foundation fix.

They do? I didn't purchase them (the complete resident evil franchise have a Steam Sale right now) since only 4 seams to work without lots of workarounds and problems according to You should upload your info for those there!

yeah they work with workarounds because they use wmv files so either they need wmp10/11 or media foundation.

there's already a bug report about wmv files on proton github, there has been some work already but seems it isn't complete yet. Hopefully with the next proton releases it will be just click and play.

scaineReckon I'll give Fallout 4 another shot to see if they've improved the mouse capture in that game.

I play that with 360 pad as i figure its an action rpg rather than a shooter so more console like but i get if people have to play with keyboard and mouse.

I'm happy as it now runs Fallout 4 without problems again, The first 4.11 was great and rock solid for Fallout 4 but after the -2 and -3 i had the strange lighting problem, as you look around the game would go very dark to very over bright and had to fall back to 4.9 proton which had the other problem of crashing to desktop at random times, but now with 4.11-4 the strange lighting problem is fixed and tested for about 3 hours and no crashes to desktop so far

But i still need to use the launch option:

PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xaudio2_7=n,b" %command%

That keeps the Audio working and synced.

This shouldn't be needed if you use Proton-GE release (force it via properties works best).

I tested Proton 4.15 GE (which has d9vk on by default) and Gothic 3 still is very sluggish, so I guess improvements won't come fast. I also tested it on intel and got exactly the same frame rate so it doesn't seem to be GPU related.

I tested Proton 4.15 GE with Witcher 3. The mouse behaviour is broken then. Sometimes the mouse hits an invisible barrier. I do not have this problem, with the official Proton.

Gothic 3 is one of the games atm that runs extremely poorly with D9VK (and wined3d). Reasons unknown.

I have never tried steam proton (instead of DXVK/Wine) because I only have 3.6 Gb RAM and this is pretty tight so every MB I can save is nicer. But yesterday I saw that 'A Plague Tale' had a free demo and I used proton for that. With 3.6 GB of RAM I was able to run the game via steam on Ultra settings, and at the same time make a recording, and this on KDE Plasma that uses a little more RAM than Openbox that I normally use: So it works very well with this new release.
