  • Can I use AMD FSR for native games??
    This fshack patch for wine (included in proton-ge and some lutris runner)
  • Looking for FSR Guide
    Have a look at this page for some more information:
  • Proton Experimental gets DEATHLOOP working on Linux with AMD and Nvidia GPUs | 2021-09-17
    They had to bump the reported W10 version, plus set amd ags library to built-in (i.e. they use the linux-customized version, rather than the vanilla one that comes with the game), plus an update to vkd3d for nvidia cards, plus some other tiny adjustment (not sure if they were necessary to start the game at all, or just some comfy optimizations found along the way).
  • New release of Proton Experimental is out.
    I should have read your comment first before building my own compare-link on/for the wine submodule. Lots of work on on-screen-keyboard magic (+ a few "hacks" about it, but I certainly don't have better recommendations) using a steam://open/keyboard (no parameters) or team://open/keyboard?XPosition=%d&YPosition=%d&Width=%d&Height=%d&Mode=0 (with parameters in snprintf-y format)
    It seems they have updated Wine
    (Slightly) more context: tabtip.c and the initial commit has the commit-message:
  • Proton/Steam Play já oferece suporte a FSR em todos os jogos que usam Vulkan | 2021-09-12
  • Proton 6.3.6 released
    Yes I meant FSR support for fshack
  • Odin: The Ultimate Gaming Handheld [IGG Trailer] | 2021-08-18
    I mean, there is already work to integrate FidelityFX FSR to Proton.
  • fshack with fsr, can it be used without wine/proton
    Basically native games or games on web browser? Is there a way to use? This is the all I could find on fshack
  • Collabora cut down futex2 patches for the Linux Kernel to help Steam Play Proton
    As far as I can tell there's not. The futex2 patch is only in Proton Experimental (commit cb0376c6e8b346be17fbab8f2b1952602008e097) and it seems to read the futex2 syscall numbers from some files in /proc. This kernel patch doesn't seem to define those files, and it looks like it'd break when it only has waitv anyway.
  • I injected AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution into Star Citizen and raised my frame rate almost 20% (this works on any GPU)
  • [ARCH] Most Wine versions lags bad with NVIDIA ( 980M) driver
    I even tried to get the PKGBUILD file and replaced with the newest version from, changing the file link and its shasum256 to this
  • Wine-6.14-GE-1 released
    Actually, AMD's recommended setting to start tuning at is 2. Upstream PR was updated with this new default (force-pushed) on 2021-07-23.
