DamonLinuxPLI have been disappointed with such things many times. Worst of all if it will be a compatible profile for running games from xp/vista/7 in Windows 10
Here's the Official Documentation for Steam Play,
And here are the logos...

...AWESOME !!!

That is the old Steamplay feature, available for years...

The new steamplay feature is different:

"Steam_Settings_Compat" "Steam Play" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Title" "Steam Play Settings" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Info" "Steam Play will automatically install compatibility tools that allow you to play games from your library that were built for other operating systems." "Steam_Settings_Compat_Enable" "Enable Steam Play for supported titles" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Advanced_Title" "Advanced" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Forced_Info" "You can use Steam Play to test games in your library that have not been verified with a supported compatibility tool." "Steam_Settings_Compat_Forced_Enable" "Enable Steam Play for all titles" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Advanced_Info" "You may select a compatibility tool to use with games that have not been tested or verified to work on this platform.\n\nThis may not work as expected, and can cause issues with your games, including crashes and breaking save games." "Steam_Settings_Compat_Default_Tool" "Compatibility tool:" "Steam_Settings_Compat_Info_Link" "SteamPlay FAQ" "Steam_Settings_Compat_No_Default" "None selected"

"Steam Play will automatically install compatibility tools that allow you to play games from your library that were built for other operating systems."

Maybe this Compatibility tool is SteamOS exclusive.

If they are having problems with Vulkan, they should implement a plan B using OpenGL like in the first game...

Well... Somebody is funding DXVK and the Developer refuse to accept donations, so...

g000hThere are some non-obvious effects. Devs are very much affected by analytics data. A game bought for playing on Windows (i.e. WINE) because the Linux port is delayed (for instance), produces stats that it was a Windows purchase.


I know that GOG detects properly the Operative System used when you buy a game.

I don't know how the metrics system of Valve works... If you buy a windows exclusive game via the Linux version of the Steam client, maybe is counted as a Linux sale.

Talking point: Leaving user reviews for Linux games can really help a developer

I just purchased Artifex Mundi Hidden Object (native Linux) games on GOG...
Now I have to post a review about them, clarifying that the games were played on Linux.

DXVK, the Vulkan-based layer for Direct3D 11 with Wine has another fresh release

I would like to see a comparison between the Feral ports of Tomb Raider (2013), Mad Max and Rise of the Tomb Raider versus the windows versions of those games running via wine/DXVK..
