    I installed proton as a replacement for wine on Gentoo. It seems to be a fine drop-in replacement. Except that mangohud doesn't work with it. No idea why

      Hi RealNC, there are some games that DO NOT work with mangoHud. I still do not know if it is a mangohud issue or the game itself. For example Bendy and the dark revival will not launch and simply crash if we use mangohud. Without it, it works fine for a long time.

        Forcing no-launcher policy would do no good neither for gamers left without games, no for Valve left without revenue. To change the situation Valve can introduce some form of launcher tax, like extra 2% for new titles using launchers with external authorization. This would make publishers think twice before putting this crap into their games.

        That. Configuration launchers are just fine and actually serve a purpose.

        I hate multi-account launcher games. Epic launches Ubisoft which....son of a....you haven't launched this for a while, check yer email and do 2FA...finally, FINALLY launches a game.
        Valves official recommendations regarding launchers are to:Yes, basically the same recommendation in 2 different pages at the Steamworks site.

        Maybe after the Steam Deck (and, by extension, SteamOS) reaches a considerably larger market share, VALVE could start forcing a no-launchers policy.

          Yeah, true. ​ Sometimes I end up not buying some games only for that exact reason.

            Plus launchers are often a sign of a bad console port: consoles don't need settings, putting the settings in a separate app is a quick hack for PC ports.

              Wrong. Launchers cause issues with controllers and remote play.
