Collabora share big progress on the Wine compatibility layer with Wayland

Quoting: ShmerlNice progress. Looking forward to switching to the Wayland session when KWin / KWinFT will also add adaptive sync support. That is a bigger deal breaker than the need to use XWayland for Wine currently.
VRR is planned for 5.22

Proton 5.13-5 is now up bringing in some of the experimental changes
15 January 2021 at 12:57 pm UTC

Quoting: BeamboomI wonder if that means that right now the "experimental" branch is behind? I've not noticed experimental getting a new version lately.
It's not, Just click on the link to the changelog.

Quoting: axredneckWhat is a right way to use Proton outside Steam?
You don't! Just use lutris wine or for latest patches wine from Tk-Glitch or GloriousEggroll.
(even lutris removed proton support because it causes wired bugs outside of steam)

Quoting: RandomizedKirbyTree47Yet, somehow, most threads about Steam games aren't filled with complaints that you'll lose all your Steam games (or at least, you won't be able to install them on any new computer) if Valve ever goes out of business.

Well, people talked about nothing else the first ~5'ish years of Steam. Then they got used to it, like they will to streaming services like Stadia.

Youropa is a gorgeous and unique puzzle platformer and works mostly perfekt on proton (character customisation isn't working). Y'all should give it a try :)

Quoting: Trias"You're going to need the most up to date drivers possible to use it fully. For AMD that means Mesa's RADV driver ...".

Just to clarify, this "Mesa's RADV driver" is some different Mesa driver from what I'm getting from Kisak-Mesa PPA, yes? Eh, I think I'll wait a bit...

RADV is Mesas vulkan driver for AMD gpus. It's exactly what you get from Kisak-Mesa PPA. Just not new enough. Mesa 20.3 is scheduled for december.

It only uses one thread on my system (zen3 and polaris [mesa master]).

Psyonix are ending support for Rocket League on both Linux and macOS (updated)

Quoting: Cyril... this is indeed terrible for us and for Apple users...

Well, they have to drop it anyways for apple users. Because macOS Catalina will not support 32bit software anymore.

While not on Linux officially, Far Cry New Dawn seems to work amazingly well on Linux

What's going on with the wine build? Sometimes it has similar FPS as windows but 10%CPU load less.

Psyonix have put up a roadmap of what's coming next for Rocket League

Quoting: liamdaweI did notice that sandy shores Linux audio bug finally went away :)

Oh, yeah, that was finally gone a month or two ago. It got fixed in the first bigger update after Epic bought Psyonix.
