There's also the KWinFT project to try. Release Notes for the latest release are interesting because they explain well the differences with actual KWin.

Quoting: uglyFor me, at least, it seems like it is caused by the 'Ambient Occlusion' setting. Turning that off and all the flickering disappeared.

This solved my problems, too!

Be sure your system is up to date, and report issues because I've seen plenty of others on Linux not seeing those problems. Could be Mesa specific (going by your system details on here).

I'm on Mesa 20.2.3. As @ugly said, disabling "Ambient Occlusion" solved all the flicker I had. Seems definitely a Mesa problem...

Quoting: ziabiceBefore I can't play the game because Proton can't run it, now I can't play it because Steam keeps on downloading the Windows version instead of the Linux one.

Yes, I already unchecked the "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool" option, deleted all the original downloaded files, restarted Steam several times, (re)downloaded several times, but nothing helped me. Any advice?
You could try forcing the Steam Linux Runtime which should install the native version.

That did the trick! Thank you!

I've been playing it on Proton? I believe it was the 5.9 GE version though, not 5.13 based.

I use (and will continue to use) vanilla Proton: there's a problem with video codecs that Proton-GE solves.

Italian translation + Linux support = instabuy on Fanatical which has a sale.

Out of curiosity I tried it under Proton: doesn't work because of the unsupported video codecs.

For what I recall, "Lords of the Fallen" was not playable because of some sort of DRM, in fact the Gog version was perfectly playable. This means that maybe more games are now playable.

Metro Exodus is still planned to release for Linux and macOS

I already finished the game using Proton, but a native Vulkan port will be a great excuse to do a second run
