DLSS seems really interesting.


As a result of this work, today we are releasing the Beta of a new and improved version of Steam Play to all Linux users! It includes a modified distribution of Wine, called Proton, to provide compatibility with Windows game titles. Here are some of the improvements it brings to the table:
Windows games with no Linux version currently available can now be installed and run directly from the Linux Steam client, complete with native Steamworks and OpenVR support.
DirectX 11 and 12 implementations are now based on Vulkan, resulting in improved game compatibility and reduced performance impact.
Fullscreen support has been improved: fullscreen games will be seamlessly stretched to the desired display without interfering with the native monitor resolution or requiring the use of a virtual desktop.
Improved game controller support: games will automatically recognize all controllers supported by Steam. Expect more out-of-the-box controller compatibility than even the original version of the game.
Performance for multi-threaded games has been greatly improved compared to vanilla Wine.

This goes hand-in-hand with an ongoing testing effort of the entire Steam catalog, in order to identify games that currently work great in this compatibility environment, and find and address issues for the ones that don’t. The initial set of supported games that we are enabling with this initial Beta release is as follows:
Beat Saber
Bejeweled 2 Deluxe
Doki Doki Literature Club!
DOOM II: Hell on Earth
Fallout Shelter
Geometry Dash
Google Earth VR
Into The Breach
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013
Mount & Blade
Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword
NieR: Automata
PAYDAY: The Heist
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
Star Wars: Battlefront 2
Tekken 7
The Last Remnant
Tropico 4
Ultimate Doom
Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War® - Dark Crusade
Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War® - Soulstorm





The reorchestrated music in FFXII is uh-mazing.


@chapel, have you checked out this Proton/Steam Play stuff? It’s wild how well it works.


I haven’t tried it no. My VM setup broke a few weeks ago so I had to reinstall windows and just decided to run windows directly for a while so I could still play games. Once I feel up to it, will rebuild my setup the way it was.


Anyone here signing up for their service? I don’t care about cloud saves or voice chat, but I might spend the money if the NES library is good enough.


Hahahaha fuck no.


That’s gonna be a no for me, dog.






Resonance of Fate is great game. Now more people get to enjoy it.
