Like half a year ago I got DELL XPS 13 in my workplace. Running Arch on it, works very well. Nice laptops :) Would be cool to see some DELL XPS with Ryzen processors and Linux. Maybe I would buy one such for my wife!

Want a more up to date Proton for Steam Play? Proton GE has a big new release out

It's because the game is defaulting to another direct X version (10 or 11). You must make the game use directX 9. I believe many games will honor the launch option -dx9

Grand Theft Auto IV support only DirectX 9. When I turn on HUD I see running DXVK 1.3.2 with D3D9 mode. I could not manage to force it to use D9VK. Performance is very bad with DXVK on this game. I wonder why it does not switch to D9VK.

Anyway it's not that of a big issue as I can play with Proton 4.11-3 and PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 works well :)
