i looked up some ubisoft games. far cry 3+5
https://www.protondb.com/app/220240

ubisoft games dont work because of this stupid uplay client, but they used a crack and it works
im sure thats kinda illegal, but if it is that easy to run ubisoft games on linux, maybe valve can talk to ubisoft and make something happen (idk, maybe a separate .exe file for linux users)

do you think that could work?

I don't have any problem running the Far Cry games in regular wine.

The uplay login bug was fixed in the final release of Wine staging. It's not fixed in wine-devel or proton *yet*, but people seem to have found a way around it (essentially it's a matter of symlinking to the correct version of libgnutls). This is from the protondb page for Assassin's Creed Revelations (obviously it's for Arch, but you get the idea):

QuoteYou need to set the correct libgnutls lib:

sudo pacman -S lib32-gnutls
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgnutls.so.30.14.11 ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/pinned_libs_64/libgnutls.so.26
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libgnutls.so.30.14.11 ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/pinned_libs_32/libgnutls.so.26

Install corefonts:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Sirmentio/protontricks/master/protontricks && chmod +x protontricks
sudo mv protontricks /usr/bin/protontricks protontricks 271590 corefonts

Install uplay: WINEPREFIX=/folder_games/steamapps/compatdata/201870/pfx wine Donwnload/Uplay.exe

Let uplay reinstall steam. Launch the game and it will work.

I haven't tried this out myself, though.

it would be great, if it works OOTB, because i really like ubisoft games
i havent played watch dogs 2, south park 2 and the new assassins creed (im still hanging in origins on windows)

Is Good to see Killing Floor 2 Working out of the box thanks to Proton 3.16-4 beta!
The use of an SSD is recommended for this game.

My understanding is that on the countries that there is some ruling about this, modifying your binaries is completely legal as long it is your local copy. (Australia and EU) So your binaries are yours and you can do whatever you please, as long as you don't distribute them .

The same reasoning that could apply to a car, when you tune it, same thing for software. Don't let them tell you otherwise.

as long as you dont remove DRM... it think
anyway. who will sue you? they see, that you have a legal copy and i dont know if they see, that you use a crack

sr_ls_boy commented on 9 November 2018 at 5:58 pm UTC

The uplay client works for me in regular wine. I'm just lucky. I guess. Thus far cry 3 & 4 work
very well for me. The ubisoft titles are all on sale at steam. The lowest price is at
green man gaming.

not true there is not a single case where someone has been condemned for doing such thing. On the contrary there are plenty of rulings that say that you can do whatever you please with your local copy.

EULA and License Agreements are not laws remember that. Most of the stuff written there is unenforceable it wouldn't stand in a court.

¬¬ I just discovered that is possible to override xaudio2_7 from the launch option
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xaudio2_7=n,b" %command%

I have to try it by myself.
With this, a lot of games will work out of the box with platinum rating.
