Proton GE sees another new release pulling in lots of fixes

Quoting: drmoreira13I have an Acer Nitro powered by Endless OS, I use to play America's Army "normally", but in a few weeks later it is not working correctly, some maps doesn't works, the laptop crash when I try to play "Hospital" for example, and many others maps. To play various maps I had to move back to an old version of Proton about 5.10 I guess, and my FPS had a huge drop back from 130FPS to 90FPS...
I wish it could go back to what it used to be...
Independent of this little problems, I need to say thank you all for doing Proton and make Linux community happier. I really appreciate it!

Hi drmoreira13 and welcome on Board !

I assume you are trying to get "America's Army proving Grounds" to work ?
Did you try to run this game with PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command% as a Start-Option in Steam ?

I just did a quick Search in for this Game and there this Tip was provided.

Quoting: TheSHEEEPProton-GE has to be one of the most wildly unreliable pieces of software that I use regularly anyway.

If/How it works changes radically for me per game. Some games won't work with it at all that work just fine with normal Proton, some games work, but with abysmal performance compared to normal Proton.
Or the other way around.
Or anything in-between.
Did you always delete the wineprefix when you change from normal Proton to Proton-GE or the other way round. ?
Its the first thing i do when i have Problems with Proton.

Metro Exodus from 4A and Deep Silver has officially released for Linux

Played "Metro Exodus" under Proton until yesterday.
Actually I assumed that a huge download will be necessary to play it in the native version...
But far from it !
I had to download only about 195 MB and could then immediately play the native Linux version. Apparently only the part with the engine is exchanged, the assets remain the same, that's really clever solved.
The performance is really good, everything is damn smooth.
I am very satisfied, thanks 4A Games. :-)

Ultima Ascension, Bladerunner, Resident Evil 2 the Remake. I was impressed how well RE2 runs on my Machine with ProtonGE out of the Box.

Google has opened up their Stadia game streaming service, two months free Pro too

Hi, maybe i got that all wrong but i don't think that this is the free "1080p only" "Stadia-Base-Version" we're all waiting for.
It's only Stadia-Pro free for 2 Months.
After that it'll cost again 9,99.

pls correct me if im wrong...

Quoting: ThormackGuys, could you recommend some nice free-to-play windows games?

Never used Proton before and don't want to buy win games just for testing.

You can try Brawlhalla. It is a free online competitive Platformer with full controller Support.

And its fun :-)
