Elite: Dangerous
StraToN 15 Mar

Hey everyone!

I'm creating this thread for Elite: Dangerous. I know this may look like a support thread, but since sounds more specifically like a Proton issue.
This game was working for me on my laptop until recently using Proton. However since a few time, the game does not run anymore, not the launcher. I tried using Proton 4.11 and 5.x, same result

Is anyone observing the same as I do ?

I bought E:D a few months back, but couldn't get it to run at all. I can't remember what versions I tried, so not much help to be honest, but it was an easy refund for me. If this thread takes off with any advice for getting it running, I might give it another try.

Just tried my installation here, still runs just fine. I have the Steam version and use SteamPlay/Proton for ED.
I've setup protontricks and with that I installed dotnet40 into the prefix (`protontricks 359320 dotnet40 win7`). Note that you need to start the game once before running protontricks for having an existing prefix folder.
My launch options are `WINEDLLOVERRIDES=rundll32=d gamemoderun %command%`, though the dll override is just to prevent a rundll message box in case the prefix got updated.
