Steam Play Proton 4.11-9 is out with a few fixes, plus a new release of Proton GE

Posted by , | Views: 16,960

Two Steam Play updates to share this morning! The official Proton was updated to Proton 4.11-9 and Proton 4.20 GE 1 is also up.

Looking to get started with Steam Play on Linux? Be sure to check our previous beginners guide.

First, the official Proton 4.11-9 release handled by Valve and CodeWeavers which is quite a small one. There's a performance regression fix that affected 32-bit games using DXVK and D9VK, reporting too little GPU memory for certain GPUs was fixed and they fixed a crash when launching Crazy Machines 3 with certain GPUs. The only other improvement in this release is the restoration of force feedback for steering wheels.

As usual, find the entire official Proton changelog on GitHub here. Updates are automatic in the Steam client.

Since Steam Play expanded into a system that can enable multiple different compatibility layers, a number of these have popped up like Proton GE which includes a number of extra fixes although it doesn't see as much testing as the official one so keep that in mind. Proton 4.20 GE 1 replaces all previous builds, as it removes some Microsoft Media Foundation work that they can't legally keep in.

That's not all Proton 4.20 GE 1 has though as it also pulls in updates from D9VK, DXVK, FAudio and Vkd3d. Additionally it enables patches to help Origin, GTA V and the Rockstar Game Launcher, Skyrim SkyUI, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Origin and so on.

See the Proton GE update and release download here on GitHub.

What does that mean "restoration of force feedback for steering wheels" does that mean that FFB finally works out of the box on games like Dirt Ralley 2, Project Cars 2, Kartkraft,......... or was there just a regression on 4.11-8, or do we still need the workaround made by berarma?

ffbtools and ffbwrap then add to launch options
ffbwrap --direction-fix /dev/input/by-id/usb-Logitech_G29_Driving_Force_Racing_Wheel-event-joystick -- %command%

ForceFeedBack fix! Finally. The main problem with proton has always been the FFB support. I guess i still need my FFBtools from berarma for Dirt Rally 2.0 to work with my G920, but yeah 4.11 version broke FFB for Project Cars 2 completely and it worked somewhat with 4.2-9.

I still got the old 4.19-GE-1 with the mfplat fixes built in luckily. So I will be using that for a while until games somehow really need a newer one.

It's s shame he had to remove it but I understand the reason.

So, is there ever going to a legal resolution to the mfplat issues? Does it require mfplat to be implemented as part of Wine? Or is there patent issues, so unlikely to ever be resolved?

For some reason I can't install Proton GE in my steam.

I already extract to ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/ but the option doesn't appear inside steam.
