  • Steam Play Proton 4.11-12 is out

    The first Steam Play Proton release of 2020 is now available with 4.11-12 which is mainly a cleanup.

    Looking to get started with Steam Play on Linux? Be sure to check our previous beginners guide for some tips and explanations. We'll be keeping that up to date with any major changes.

    DXVK, the translation layer the converts Direct 3D 9/10/11 to Vulkan which forms part of Proton was upgraded to the 1.5.1 release from last week. So all the changes there like performance improvements for D3D9 and bug fixes for some big titles like GTA V are available now.

  • Valve's Proton 4.11-12 Released With DXVK 1.5.1, Updated SDKs

    The Wine-downstream Proton that powers Valve's Steam Play is up to version 4.11-12 following a release today by a CodeWeavers developer.

    Most notable with Proton 4.11-12 is pulling in DXVK 1.5.1, the release that brings better D3D9 performance and many game fixes as well as better thread defaults for today's CPUs.

  • Slay the Spire patch 2.0 is out, bringing in The Watcher as the fourth character

    As if I needed more reasons to dive into the Spire once again, Slay the Spire 2.0 is out which brings quite a lot of changes in addition to the fourth character.

    You need to unlock this character, by having the third character unlocked and then beating an Act III boss with any character. That can take some time to do, I had a two hour game earlier where I was destroyed by the Act III boss—maybe next time. Just like the other three characters, The Watcher has their own deck of cards and a handful of unique relics.

    There's also 14 new potions, so they also added a Potion Lab where you can go to find out more information on them just like the Card Library. To make runs even more interesting there's an additional 9 Relics that all characters can use and an additional 9 Relics just for The Watcher.
