  • Okay we have a ton of confused individuals here so let me clarify something…

    GE (Glorious Eggroll) is the single most common modification people add to Proton. It fixes a lot of current game-breaking issues and can be found here. On the deck, the simples way to install them will probably be through the internal updater/app store. Just need to enable user-made packages (AUR).
  • Save 90% on Gothic Universe Edition on Steam [$1,99] [New Historical Low | Previous Low: $3.99]
    If you are buying the Steam Deck, you may want to look into Glorious Eggroll. It is by far the most common modification people manually add to Steam’s Proton. Aside various community fixes by the creator, it also includes some extra stuff which Valve probably would want to include in Proton but cannot for one reason or another, like Windows Media Foundation.

    Did you try install Glorious Egroll custom versions already? They often contain patches for specific games and IIRC there were some for D4. It maybe is just a straw but maybe this could help: https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom/releases

    Install Proton-GE, specifically, Proton-5.9-GE-6-ST. Couldn't get the latest ones to work.

    Many of the issues in Gothic 1 and 2 were fixed in a recent build of Proton-GE. Hopefully they can be implemented upstream.
  • Modding Skyrim (and other bethesda games) on Linux. Is that even possible?
    To set things up, first you'll need to install a custom version of SKSE (there is a link to a Google Drive file inside the GitHub link) and a custom version of Proton, the open source software Valve uses to run Windows games on Linux, which is basically Wine with a few other software bundled together, like DXVK.

    You're right in a general sense, but it's a bit deeper -- and shallower -- than that. Battlefield 4, for instance, runs some kind of server-side thing (FairFight) and wants ye olde hoary PunkBuster running on the client.

    Obviously, the installer tries to install and start PB then errors out quite spectacularly, as one might imagine such a program to do in a wine prefix, but then you can just download the PB executable and run it in the wine prefix post-install no problem. Origin plays surprisingly nicely, too, though it generates a total of six windows that you can't close during play or it freaks out. There is some additional fuckery required; Wine's networking needs a bit of massaging to allow BF4 to advertise its ping to multiplayer servers, and you'll get kicked if you've got a ping of "-".

    Thing is, though, Proton is Wine-and-allied-trades. In the fullness of time I suspect new BF4 players won't have to jump through these hoops as Proton gets updated. And others are already racing ahead, too, borrowing from and providing for Valve's fork of it. GloriousEggroll [1] is the most robust varietal currently.

    Thing is, though, multiplayer is going to be a little bit more difficult to enable than that. I'm not savvy enough to properly understand the arguments, but I've read that the translation layers for graphics, DXVK et al, could easily be repurposed by clever enough end-users to eg wallhack by making textures transparent, etc

  • Linux performance vs Windows?
    I'd also like to add that I run a rolling release distro (fixes and improvements come quicker to software overall). For other games I'd recommend you look into the bleeding edge Proton release by Glorious Eggroll (it offers plenty of benefits).

    Install Lutris. Download Proton-GE. Extract Proton-GE to Lutris runners folder. ~/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine
  • Can't reeinstall drivers on Manjaro
    Hi there. So yesterday I bought Skyrim and downloaded it through Steam, but it was not launching for some reason. Confused I searched for it online and found out that Proton-6.16-GE-1 could solve the issue, however it didn't. What was even more strange was the fact that I couldn't run some other games that were running perfectly before, so I though about reinstalling my drivers, and to my surprise, the process failed. I assumed it would be because I updated my kernel yesterday so I switched to the 5.12.19-1 LTS but I am still facing the same issue. Here is the output I get when I try to reinstall my drivers (I am using an nVidia 2060 along with an Intel Graphics Card, so my installed driver is the video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime):
