How to configure individual prefixes on Proton?...
Comandante Ñoñardo commented on 24 August 2018 at 6:20 pm UTC

legluondunetTry without uppercase:

That was the problem...

Now wine config screen load but crash...
err:winedevice:ServiceMain driver L"WineBus" failed to load

Maybe because the wine version in my system is very old, because I never use it... I use Crossover.

legluondunetThe idea of proton is: you click, the game just works.
If it is not the case, you can open an issue here:

Yesterday I tried to tweak Proton for Darksiders game.
Darksiders needs devenum, windows media player and quartz.
I did:
WINEPREFIX='/mnt/dd2/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/50620/pfx' winecfg
and I can see the Proton dll overrides...
you can try this too:
WINEPREFIX='/mnt/dd2/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/50620/pfx' winetricks
Will this not try to upgrade the WINEPREFIX with the version of Wine you have installed? At least for winetricks it might be safer to set the WINE variable to wherever Proton lives?

Anyhow, for games that need native .dll's I've had succcess just dropping the files in the game folder. It survives Proton updates, bug might not work for all titles.

Did you try with Lutris? I have a game, L.A.NOIRE, that is only work with Lutris. If it doesn't work with SteamPlay, don't loose your time, it is not the SteamPlay concept. Open an issue on Proton Github and try another thing like Lutris.

Actually, this.. WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.steam/steam/SteamApps/compatdata/203730/pfx" winetricksworks

I was unable to install .net 4.0 that the game needs..
But I understand is a normal issue.

At least, now I know how to experiment.
