Config.vdf settings for steam play
buckysrevenge 4 Feb, 2019
I'm having trouble getting Steam to make the settings to allow all games to use steam play to stick. I'm running SteamOS beta and can't get the regular steam client to load from the desktop (and BPM doesn't have any steam play config options yet), so the only way for me to turn on these settings is to edit the config.vdf directly like this. I was trying to enable proton version 3.16, but wasn't sure how it's specified in the config.vdf in the tool mapping section. Could someone that's got proton 3.16 running for all steam games confirm how it's configured in this file? Thanks!

i'm running 3.16 beta and mine shows as

"name" "proton_316_beta"
"config" ""
"Priority" "250"


perhaps you might try "proton_316"
hope this helps.
