Maybe they are delaying it because of the coronavirus.

This days Aspyre are more into console port and game edition, than into mac and linux ports.

I hope they choose to comeback to us and take the Vulkan way.

Quoting: NanobangIs it possible (or even recommended ?) to use D9VK with Proton-as-SteamPlay (as opposed to, say, Proton-as-separate WINE alternative)? If so, how would a varmint like me go about making that happen?

it's easy download latest D9VK version here

Then go to the folder where your steam games are and look for the Proton folder of the version you want to replace, let's say it is Proton 4.2, extract the D9VK file and replace those in /Proton 4.2/dist/lib/wine/dxvk and /Proton 4.2/dist/lib64/wine/dxvk

In the Proton 4.2 folder there is a file named proton, edit it to replace the line:

dxvkfiles = ("d3d11", "d3d10", "d3d10core", "d3d10_1", "dxgi")

by:

dxvkfiles = ("d3d9", "d3d11", "d3d10", "d3d10core", "d3d10_1", "dxgi")

After a recent big update, Rise to Ruins breaks its own single-day sales record
3 May 2019 at 5:11 pm UTC

it's the offer of the day effect on steam in action, being on sale in the front page get you a lot more sale especially if your game is considered to be cool rather than being buried with hundreds of others games on the sales pages.

NVIDIA have two new drivers out with 430.09 and the Vulkan beta driver 418.52.05

Quoting: wleoncioWait, so what does that make version 430? Super stable? :P

According to this link 418.56 is the current long-lived branch, and that probably make 430.09 the new current official release, but the page did not seems to be up to date.

I guess none of them are super stable and come with it's own batch of bugs :)
