How to add free games to the library (Proton)
MrNilsson commented on 19 October 2019 at 10:28 pm UTC

Hey guys,

I don't know if I'm dumb or something, but I try to add a free game to my Steam Library. I talk about the game BombTag.

It got Platinum ratings on ProtonDB but the game isn't showing up in my Library to activate the Proton settings. I could install it via Lutris, but is there any other way to install it on Steam?

Thanks for your help guys,

You go:

steam -> settings -> Steam Play

And you select the "Enable Steam Play for all other titles" box

I prefer having it not selected and select steam play for individual titles but if I need to add a free game this seems the only way. If you add the game then you can go back to this menu and reverse the setting if you like and the game remains on your library.

Sometimes you fail to see the easiest way. Thank you lucinos.
