Valve and CodeWeavers have unleashed another update to Steam Play with Proton 4.11-7 releasing today.

Seems they're continuing to try and get gamepads/controllers into a good state, with "Major" improvements to how they handle hotplugging. More games should now see your gamepad when you plug it in after you start it. Additionally, there's improved support for Windows games built with Unity using the Rewired Unity plugin.

They also updated wine-mono which is now at version 4.9.3, this should hopefully improve font rendering and help fix some compatibility issues with Age of Wonders: Planetfall. Kingdom Come: Deliverance got a fix when launching and some VR games might no longer crash too.

Additionally, DXVK was updated to 1.4.2 and D9VK to 0.22 putting them both at the latest available releases.

As usual the latest Proton update will be available in the Steam client shortly if not already. You can find the changelog here.

KuJoIt's nice to see that Valve is constantly developing Proton's capabilities.

Too bad that we don't hear anything new about Easy Anti Cheat (EAC) yet. Many multiplayer titles won't be listed as "Borked" in the ProtonDB database until the support exists.

I also hope that we won't wait here in vain. The long silence to the topic lets me doubt slowly ...

It's a long process, as a lot of wine libs needs to be rewritten AFAIK. But I'm pretty confident it will come.

Wine 4.17 implemented one of the things that EAC needs:

It is still not working yet though.

TorqachuNothing for CEG games

yeah it's quite surprising that not even valve own in-house DRM works with Proton. I have quite a bunch of games that don't work because of CEG.

Technically speaking, what is stopping Proton from working on non-Linux systems? How much work would be involved getting it running on the BSDs or anything else?

Should I reinstall Kingdom Come: Deliverance? It stopped starting for me after update. With older Proton versions I had to link some DLLs to a different directory or it wouldn't go past the initial black screen. It does the same now even though I have those DLLs linked properly.

It's probably quite doable. dxvk even works on Windows.
