Bioshock Remastered Issues
I am having some issues on Bioshock Remastered and was wondering if anybody else has as well. When I press the button to hack anything it takes usually between 30 second to 2 minutes to bring up the menu to begin the hack. The game looks like it is frozen but if I leave it will finally do it's job in the end. Also the saving and loading of a game can take up to a minute or more even though i'm on an NVME SSD.

Just fired it up to see, but can confirm that the game works fine for me. Hacking starts instantly.

Thanks for the input.

I have tried using XFCE instead of Mate and the issue remained. I also tried Proton GE instead of 6.3-7 but it also still remained. I did a fresh install of Manjaro using EXT4 instead of BTRFS for the file system but the issue remains. I also tried the 5.10.70 kernel instead of the 5.14.10 kernel but the issue still happens. I may try my system that has a i7-4770 to see if it happens there.

I also tried both PROTON_NO_FSYNC=1 %command% and "PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command%" but neither solved my issue.

I had forgotten I had changed the launch options.

They currently are PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% -nointro

I also default to proton experimental.

Just out of curiosity, have you enabled the shader pre-cache in the steam client?

we have a winner. Someone on Github suggested it to me. I had tried disabling Fsync and Esync but was told to disable them both at the same time. This solved my issue. The command was PROTON_NO_FSYNC=1 PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command%.
