Steam Play Proton gets turned up to 11 in the latest update

By - | Views: 30,475

Steam Play Proton has been updated once again, dealing with a mouse issue from the last update and other improvements.

Feature Highlight of Proton 4.11-11:

  • Fix stuttering mouse cursor issue during longer play sessions.
  • Update DXVK to v1.5, which now includes D9VK.
  • GTA5's latest update is now playable.
  • Restore support for mapped mouse cursor buttons.

With the update to DXVK 1.5, not only does it now include D9VK directly it also has the extra bug fixes for Atelier Ryza, Halo MCC and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (plus others not on Steam directly). As always, see the changelog on GitHub.

Good time too with the Steam sale going on, hopefully if more of you pick up some games for Steam Play you will have a better experience with this version. Your Steam client should update it automatically, if you have problems make sure you have Proton installed in the Tools menu.

ghiumaAfter the Proton update Elex doesn't work, maybe they did something wrong?

I noticed there were a couple games I was playing where I had to set them up with previous versions of proton, so it's not just you.

I'm shocked about how well the Team Sonic Racing is running on this Proton version.

Elex works perfectly with Proton-4.21-GE-2..

Elex works for me with the default Proton version (4.11-11 I think).
However I cannot play unless I switch my keyboard to qwerty and use different keys from the ones I’m used to because they prevent you from rebinding certain keys .

I don't get it.. Sometimes the audio in the cutscenes of ALAN WAKE work, and sometimes doesn't.
