    I added a post to the homepage as well.
    This is crazy!
    Why does Valve think Wine is worth supporting for Windows games?

    I think its a great move since Wine is so stable with several thousand games.
    I wonder if our guides are a source of inspiration for them?

    My concern is that if Proton works well, it might make our Steam guides completely useless.
    But can we run other games in Proton:
    • GOG
    • Retail
    • Free MMORPG
    • Origin
    • Uplay
    • Arc
    • Indie Games (Unity, UE3/UE4)
    I have some reading to so...

    I've heard recently that Proton is based on an older version of Wine: 3.7
    I also read that with DXVK enabled by default, this can cause issues with Direct X 9 games.

    So I will continue testing Direct X 9 games in PlayOnLinux and posting step-by-step guides just in case they don't run in Proton.
    Also, some of the Direct X 10/11 games that need extra workarounds not possible in Steam, will be getting guides as well.

    I read on Reddit that Proton should fallback to DX9 support with DXVK enabled. Not exactly sure how this works but here are some commands to disable/force DX11

    Code:
    Disable esync
    PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1
    
    Force DX11
    PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command%
    
    Disable DX11
    PROTON_NO_D3D11=1 %command%
