chancho_zombieit seems that shadow of the tomb raider works very well with Proton. Oh man! I really feel sad for Feral now the have zero incentive for a real port.

Don't worry for Feral, soon they will have a lot of work porting games to windows

An interview with the developer of DXVK, part of what makes Valve's Steam Play tick

EndeavourAccuracyUnless I'm mistaken, Beat Saber uses DirectX and OpenVR (for Vive), which means DXVK is part of what allows me to play the game on Linux with Proton. I'm quite happy with Valve's request and your work.
Yep, Beat Saber uses the DXVK+OpenVR combo. It was the game for me to work with, and it was a pain to get it to work because of how VR initialization works. In case of Vulkan, you need to enable certain device and instance extensions, which basically requires initialization to happen in a specific order, but D3D11 doesn't have *any* restrictions on that, so a lot of trickery was required to get it to work.

I'm really happy that you made this DXVK+OpenVR, im enjoying it a lot! thank you so much. Keep going!

Valve's Steam Play should work better today, as DXVK was left in debug mode causing a performance drop

Well, i downloaded Fallout 4 VR and i only get a black screen. I get fustrated, but maybe i started by the biggest one . Then i tried another one, Job Simualtor. I'm really impressed, it works without dropping any frame and same way as it works on windows. Flawless.

Edit: Also tried TheBlue

Testing TheBlue on Linux Steam Proton

It works but some frame drop, maybe is because im recording.

Duck Seasons

That one was a bit fustrating, game start and seems to work nice, but trigger from controller seems to dont response. I can not pass throw the title screen.

To be honest, if we are in a point that using wine we can run 100% of games, and all games got launch in wine. I will agree, it's ok for me if i can play all games in market without install a stupid windows.

Talking point: Leaving user reviews for Linux games can really help a developer

Me and some friends launch that game last week in early acces. Now we did a soft launch, only is accessible on south america, spain and easteuropean countries. When we have a solid build we will release it to all countries. If you are from those countries feel free to test it and submit a review ;D
