GE-Proton8-1 Released

Updated: May 4, 2023

GE-Proton has been updated to include the latest changes from Proton 8 and Proton Experimental, but it will come at a cost for now, FSR has been disabled on GE-Proton8-1 while they work on bringing FSR support back to GE-Proton.

Full release notes below:

  • All build components rebased to Proton 8 experimental/upstream

  • proton-wine updated to latest experimental

  • wine-staging rebased on top of proton-wine 8

  • proton-ge game patches and pending wine upstream patches rebased on top of proton-wine 8

  • dxvk updated to latest git

  • vkd3d-proton updated to latest git

  • protonfix: No cutscene audio in Daedalic Games (Memoria, The Night of the Rabbit, A New Beginning - Final Cut) - (thanks marianoag)

  • protonfix: Megadimension Neptunia VII - (thanks snaggly)


  1. FSR is currently disabled again. It needs a massive rebase and same as before I don't know if it's currently possible to rebase/port it over to the new proton 8 build.

  2. Having the nvapi hack configuration enabled in dxvk.conf seems to crash battlenet. Recommend removing it from the config for existing Lutris installations and related games.

  3. Overwatch losing focus after death seems to be fixed
