So you all heard about Proton aka SteamPlay by Valve and/or are already using it (at least, I am :-) ).
Here I want to gather some useful tools and links around this topic. I'll update this list with more in the future, so please let me know, if you find something!
A simple wrapper that does winetricks things for Proton enabled games, requires Winetricks.
This is a simple wrapper script that uses Winetricks to allow you to specify the game's App ID rather than the full length directory to the Proton prefix itself.
A module for applying fixes at runtime to unsupported games with Steam Proton without changing game installation files. The idea is to include seperate fixes that are only loaded when a game matching that ID is run. This should keep the individual game fixes from affecting any other games. Applying the fixes at runtime should also them to persist after game updates.
- Proton Wine Manager
Two tools that ease getting to and changing the proton wine prefixes. Similar to protontricks but nicer to use.
Creates a shared user directory for Proton prefixes and prevents Steam from deleting your save and config files.
The goal of ProtonDB is to gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform.
