Quotethey added support for "developers and Valve testing specifying default Proton configuration options for games even if they're not yet white-listed".
They gave developers tools for their games have better Steamplay support, very nice, I hope this will sensitize developers who do not plan to develop their game for Linux to make it more Linux-friendly.


QuoteSteam In-Home Streaming is experimentally available outside the home, and is now known as Steam Remote Play.
So If I correctly understood, we don't need Steam Link for remote gaming?
Is this new feature a next step towards a full network gaming solution as Google Strada or Playstation now?

QuoteWe will now download official Steam Input configurations during game installation for Steam Input users. This should fix the issue where Steam Input games would need to be run once before controllers worked in offline mode
I'm using more and more my Steam Controller instead of my x360: more comfortable, more keys to program, config bank available online for games...I'm thinking to buy a second one when my friend play with me.

Another progress report for the PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 shows solid progress

Very nice work but my hardware config is not enough strong to play a PS3 game in optimal conditions.

Everyone has his virtual games shop now, Valve was the first to launch the concept and now we have: Epic, Ubisoft, Blizzard, Origins...The war started. I'm not sure Steamplay will be a sufficient answer towards this aggressive concurrents. Valve should return to games development, if only they could develop and publish exclusive games. Imagine Half Life 3 exclusive to Steam platform...And like Sony they need to negociate exclusive AAA games for Steam shop.
Why I have Uplay installed on Linux? Because the game I bought (Far Cry 3 on Steam) needs Uplay to launch. Why I have Battle.Net installed on my Linux install? Because Warcraft III and WOW are not available on Steam.

Steam Play just got two updates with 4.2-3 and 3.16-9, some great stuff included

Strange, L.A.Noire works for Wine 3.14-->4.5, but not with Proton, even with Proton last version 4.2-3.

Steam Play was updated again with Proton 4.2-2

LaudracThe major problem is still not fixed, just tested today by switching in SteamOS to desktop Modus then the issue does not exist mouse working perfect in the specific proton games. Back to bigpicture mode and the problem is back. I also tried to deactivate steam overlay, but the problem is still there so steam need to fix the bigpicture mode of SteamOS

I'm not sure we are talking about the same issue, I'm talking about this one:

LaudracDid someone get the major mouse problem solved of SteamOS and proton? Mouse disappears and is only visible when clicking any button even the weel works?
Do you mean in overlay mode? There was an issue with Proton in overlay mode, the cursor was invisble, but it is recently fixed.

edoWait does it means .net games works now?
Same question, what does that mean? .Net 3.5 installed without tweaks with this new Proton version?

Answer: you still need to set Proton to XP to install .NET 3.5, so I don't know what this change mean.
