Proton Experimental gets DEATHLOOP working on Linux with AMD GPUs (update: NVIDIA too)
17 September 2021 at 9:47 am UTC

Quoting: SpykerWe will probably have to wait for a driver update with Nvidia I guess...

Also, as mentioned this currently only works with radv, so there's quite a bit of work yet.

Steam has turned 18 years old and PC gaming has never been the same since

Quoting: ArehandoroMy first purchase was The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, on 2009.

Mine is the exact same. But I'm pretty sure the Orange box stuff would have been before that. Maybe records only go back so far.

Clearing up what games will and won't run on the Steam Deck

I made a throwaway comment earlier about Windows not even guaranteeing 100% compatibility. In the PC Gamer comments some users have pointed out the same thing and named 4 games that do not work in Windows any more. The irony is that all 4 of these seem to work in Proton.

Technically not even running Windows on it will give you 100% compatibility. Some older Windows games are also borked.

ARK: Survival Evolved releases on Stadia with a bunch more free games for Stadia Pro

Quoting: The_Aquabatit's better to run ARK on proton.. it's that bad seriously

Yep, the graphical fidelity under Linux is appalling. They must be running this under Proton on the Stadia farms.

Nobody is running Proton on Stadia. dxvk/vkd3d native sure, but not wine / proton.

That was my understanding. So has anyone tried it on Stadia? Because if it's feature-complete graphically with the Windows version, then either we're wrong and they're using Proton somehow, or they've written a new renderer and just not bothered applying it to their atrocious Linux desktop build on Steam.

My guess is they just did what others have done and just outsourced the port to another company like QLOC or similar.

Explore a perilous world as a travelling caravan in Vagrus - The Riven Realms on October 5

Quoting: sourpuzHmmm, am I the only thinking that their voiceover guy somehow borked up the name of the game, of all things? I'm hearing "River Realms".

Definitely sounds like that's what he's saying. Wonder why nobody corrected it.

Valve catches a break in the Steam Controller patent trial versus Ironburg

I'm easily amused, but it cracks me up that Valve is represented by a law firm called "Shook, Hardy & Bacon"
