SteamPlay compatibility list
g000h commented on 13 September 2018 at 12:39 am UTC

Sharing my list of working and non-working Steam Play titles so far:

SCUM - working but better performance is preferred; it is EA though.

Elder Scrolls Skyrim Special Edition - working okay, apart from the NPC audio. Have not implemented a tweak/fix.

Monster Slayers, Runestone Keeper, Risen, Pathfinder Adventures, Super House of Dead Ninjas, Legend of Grimrock 2, Fallout Shelter - all working great.

Fallout 3 GOTY, Antihero, Styx: Master of Shadows - not working for me. Have not implemented a tweak/fix.


I'm quite amused about the level of impatience that I've acquired now that Steam Play/Proton/WINE technology is available to us Linux gamers. I'm wanting Skyrim, Antihero, Fallout 3 to work perfectly as soon as possible. I've even had a little look into tweaking, but it isn't really something I want to do. Clear and precise instructions on Proton tweaking might encourage me to go one step further (For Debian - Listing the packages that need to be installed). However, I don't really want to get into the tweaking mindset. Expecting that as Proton technology goes forwards these tweaks will make their way into the base product.

However, I am very interested in basic fixes that might be performed, e.g. editing the Launch Options for non-working titles to get them to work. From above, you can see I'm getting approx 75% success rate with no tweaking whatsoever.

Here's a run down of games I have, tried with Proton & that don't work at this time, it's quite a long list but nowhere near as long as the one with games that do work for me, there may also be a few that do work but I haven't tested them myself yet, the list is a couple of days out of date I think.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein can now be added to the working list, on the Proton Github someone found a workaround that works, it was posted 2 weeks ago but there's only so many hours in the day & I missed it till just now.

NVIDIA proprietary drivers users: __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700 %command%
AMD/Intel: MESA_EXTENSION_MAX_YEAR=2003 %command%

after the usual cfg resolution tweaks it runs like a dream.

edit: I grabbed the unofficial 1.42b patch from here (simple drag & drop files from an archive) & the above workarounds are no longer necessary, PLUS adding the Venom mod adds in some rather nice higher quality textures & modern lighting effects.

Alan Wake works. Need to restart it after initial start to get sound in cutscenes and disable Steam overlay to avoid crashes.

It's odd, I installed it & first time I ran it the sound was all there, but I did forget to disable the overlay which explains the crash.

Well there is that one as well, actually re-reading what I posted above I got the version number on the patch wrong, it's 1.42d not 1.42b, of course anything we change is going to get wiped out the next time Steam decides RTCW needs an update to version 1.22.

Conan Exiles can be added to the list of games that's broken at the moment, it installs no problem, it even runs as far as the menu, sound is a bit crackly but starting a session, single player or multiplayer, is a bust, it pops up an error message unable to create session.

Some native games you might want to drop from the list:

Yes, I noticed a couple of native Linux games on your list, as well, e.g. Enclave.

Also noting that you had a non-working experience for "Runestone Keeper" whereas for me and my setup, it worked perfectly, no problem. Based on that, I'd expect others to work for me, where they're failing for you. Shame about consistency across platforms. (I'm on Debian 10 Buster with Nvidia graphics.)

Impressed at how prolific you are in your compatibility testing!
