There's a brand new Steam Play Beta version out with FAudio, also a Steam Play whitelist update

wvstolzingI gave in to my curiosity, and downloaded the whole thing ... but AssCreed 1 still doesn't work. I wonder how the folks on youtube got it to work.

Works very well here in directx10 mode with DXVK. Are you using the last Proton beta? Are you using the correct Nvidia drivers? (or MESA if you own an AMD GPU, see requirements here: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/wiki/Requirements)
First thing to do: uninstall and reinstall the game.

Happy to see new improvements for Proton. As soon Proton will know how to play wma/wmv, a lot of Windows games could be whitelisted (Darksiders, Dark Souls, Age of Empire 2 HD, Final Fantasy XIV....)

Very original game, derogatory and funny. Thanks for the dev team that ported it to Linux and I hope I could play the new version on Linux.

Feral Interactive are asking you to send the game port suggestions again

I think Feral have better sell if they focus about great games that do not work or have little compatibility with Steamplay/Proton.

I'm dreaming to play Rockstar games on Linux:
GTA
L.A. NOIRE
RED DEAD REDEMPTION

and all the Just Cause chapters too.

Valve has expanded the Steam Play whitelist to include DARK SOULS III and plenty more

TimeFreezeDark Souls 1 Remastered has major game engine bugs and is basically unfixable, so probably not.
And what about Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition? I mean yes its no longer for Sale because of the Remaster but many still own it.

"Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition" works great on Proton but can not be whitelisted because of this issue: cinematics do not play.
A lot of games could be whitelisted on Steamplay if only Wine/Proton could play cinematics in WMV format.
An issue is opened on Proton github for Windows Media Player implementation:
Add .wmv file playback support to Proton. #1464

Valve just put out another (smaller) Steam Play beta version

mylkaor never like ubisoft games with their stupid uplay client
i can live without EA games, but i like far cry, watch dogs and assassins creed. i hope valve has a solution for this problem, or ubisoft stops being a pain in the ass and removes this nonsense

Valve should never have accepted the presence of the Uplay software client, this is duplicate with the Steam client for the same functionalities (success, overlay, discussions etc ...) and it consumes twice the resources.

UltraAltesBrotThe issue with games using .NET launchers not starting isn't solved yet, is it?

Resolved for games that need .Net 2.0 (it is already installed in Proton), not the others. Normally it will be resolved when Proton will update to Wine 3.18 that resolved the bug for .Net 3.5 install on 64 bits prefix:

Valve have updated Steam Play with the 3.16-1 beta based on Wine 3.16 and new DXVK

Power-Metal-GamesIt's Ubuntu 18.04. I assure you that I tried every possible thing I found on the internet and NOTHING worked. Not a big thing because I work every day so it's better not to play at all. I will just wait a little and reinstall the OS.

Wasn't there a bug and in the Ubuntu 18.04 Steam package? (Not the first time I got the impression installing Steam on Debian is easier than on Ubuntu...)

There is something that definitely prevents it from installing. But anyway, big thanks to all of you trying to help. This a great community. I almost regret that I mentioned that problem.

Did you try the flathub package?

LeopardI'm just asking that can you see DXVK HUD with that launch option.

I'm already playing AC1 via DXVK since D3D10 ( 0.72 i guess ) support added to it. But it needs d3dcompiler_43 which is a prop MS compiler that you can't distribute with Wine. So i wonder if it really works with DXVK or Wine's own OGL implementation.

My AC1 is GOG version so i need that confirmation.

It just works and you can use DXVK HUD to be sure you launched the directx10 version.

legluondunetAssassin's Creed 1 Director's Cut finally launches in dx10 mode without any tweak, just launch the game and play!
It should be soon whitelisted.

Can you confirm it works with DXVK?

It just works with Proton 3.16, it launches the directx10 version per default.
You can verify that DXVK is active with add this in the Steam game launch option:
DXVK_HUD=version,devinfo,fps %command%
