  • Additionally, a bug was fixed by Ph42oN with fullscreen not working properly when fsr is disabled, which was present in proton 7

  • protonfix for Oceanhorn was removed as it's no longer needed

  • protonfixes added for Neptunia Re;Birth 1 & 2

  • proton-wine updated to latest git

  • dxvk updated to latest git

  • vkd3d-proton updated to latest git

  • dxvk-nvapi updated to latest git

  • upstream build changes pulled in

GE Proton 8.8

  • This is a minor hotfix release that just syncs proton-wine and dxvk with upstream versions from today. A user complained they saw some odd CPU+GPU usage in 8-7, but it was fine in today's proton-experimental. After testing with this build based on today's experimental, they confirmed it was working here too.

GE Proton 8.9

-Hotfix: Apparently, yesterdays build was missing the normal proton-packaged Gecko and Mono (the file size was significantly smaller than usual). This build fixes that.
