Doktor_MandrakeOutside of mods and just vanilla RE4.... Does it work fine for you?

I tried it a few weeks ago on proton and it ran fine but graphics were messed up, leon was just a big black shadow, I know this is wine and not proton but just wondering if I can expect those issues to be fixed on proton

Also, have you tried Resident Evil HD remake from Steam? That is the RE game I want to work on linux the MOST... As lets face it, the original RE was the best one, but sadly never worked for me under wine, I did use winetricks to install WP9 or w.e was required, which got cutscenes working, but when going into actual gameplay it would just crash to desktop

Hi

This refer resident evil 4 non hd with mods

Steam Play's Proton beta has been updated with a performance improvement and fixes
30 August 2018 at 10:12 pm UTC Likes: 3

legluondunetI'm waiting for a Proton version with:
--> DXVK directx10
--> Faudio integration: https://github.com/FNA-XNA/FNA/issues/90#issuecomment-415503383
--> windows media player replacement for video and music in games in MS format.

Gstreamer must be solve this issues (wmv and possible others) according andrew eikum

Also add fix for .net issues (mono modified?)


Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine

Doktor_MandrakeHow is Tekken 7 running for you guys? For me it has pretty bad performance which is a shame for a fighting game, sits around 40-50fps most of the time, and I don't think I'm hardware bound because gpu and cpu usage still seem low and lowering settings does nothing either

Funny enough though, Killer Instinct (Which I think is a better fighting game anyway) fully works maxed out at 1080p using Proton, and its not even on the short list of games they're providing support for like Tekken 7 is.. And even more so, it's published by Microsoft and no doubt VERY heavily built on DirectX

Yet Tekken 7 uses Unreal Engine 4, also tried Snake Pass another UE4 game and performance seemed worse then last time I tried it using Lutris+DXVK and Wine, same goes for Grip which also ran fine using standard wine and DXVK... Yet on Proton it literally was going down to 6fps in-game

Seem to be having some bad luck with UE4 games so far, which I find surprising

Edit: Tested various other games as well, including Super Bomberman R (which seems to work flawlessly from the short time I spent on it).. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy sadly crashes after I press A on the "Press A to continue" screen, Quake Champions crashes straight after the initial screen, Resident Evil REmake just shows black screen (expected this one due to lack of WMP9 which is required in winetricks for it to work properly)... Duck Game doesn't load and just insta-crashes (again expected, as Duck Game requires XNA which can be installed using winetricks in normal wine)

Plan on doing alot more testing.. But more importantly I hope mrdeathdj is doing some testing of his own xD

Hi

I try testing tekken 7 but is so expensive* (dont have enough money)

*Normally bandai namco - tecmo koei is expensive games


Yes and I didn't want to buy it as well for the fact it used denuvo and was cracked in 24 hours, the director of Tekken 7 even said some performance problems for windows users were due to issues with some of the anti-tamper they were using, I don't think the specific tweet mentioned denuvo and could be more in-house but generally didn't sit too well with me... Plus the fact I actually tried Tekken 7 anyway and lol tbh it's not overly that good of a tekken game in my opinion, arcade mode is utter crap, that "rage mode" thing is utter crap

But eh, I'm a big fighting game fan and sadly linux has no triple A fighting games, I was gritting my teeth buying Tekken 7 yesturday but with it being on the list of games I really wanted my tekken fix lol, but playing a fighting game under 60fps is just not a fun experience for me

I'll be sticking with Killer Instinct for now, Valve need to add that game to their list because it already works perfectly fine using Steamplay, as do quite alot of other unlisted games from what a few steam friends have said

From what I understand as well, Valve did say people who are into open source projects can upload their own versions of proton? so in the long-term we'll have a lot of custom-settings for various different games to make them run right

I'll be testing Dead Rising 2 next, I noticed you've already tested that game but for me the performance was too heavy, not just that the FPS was very low but very inconsistent and jumping around causing a lot of stuttering

After Dead Rising 2 I'll probably test street fighter IV next.

I'm making a big wall of text now but I'm overwhelmed with this news from Valve, their efforts towards linux gaming is exciting ^^

Yeah dead rising 2 works on steam play however this game needs csmt and very high single thread

In my case use PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% for most games, in my case esync dont affect because my cpu have a few cores without forget is monolothic cpu compared with modular cpus case ryzen

Some thoughts on Valve’s new Steam Play feature and what it means for Linux gaming
24 August 2018 at 3:31 pm UTC Likes: 1

My thoughts about steam play for now in my case is this:

-audio system work than i expected

-compatibility is high

-input work good in most cases

For now stay very busy in transition (backup, restore, download, testing)

However needs put attention with size of each game prefix created around 700mb because with 100 titles this could be size around 70gbs

In problems have:

-cinematics (avi, mpeg, wmv in tests) curiously andrew eikum
talks about gstreamer, this could be proper fix

-lack of proper .net support (mainly in game launchers and
config apps)

-lack of easily option for configure each game prefix aka
winecfg because many games works better in virtual desktop,
others works better without csmt, others works better without
esync (this is for many cores cpu case ryzen)

For now is recommended have wine staging on system (in my case staging and vanilla i386 compiled) for this titles dont stay on steam and for some problems listed before

And almost forget if anyone ask for when appears tests only can say this for now
