    Proton is a slightly better wine at this point. Things break for various reasons and if you look at the officially supported list of games it's pathetic. Basically only 2d stuff and card games.

    I did get a few games going but mostly toy stuff like Fallout Shelter and such. Anything a little bit more involved either failed completely or had the performance of an ancient slug (I'm looking at your Mordheim!)
    Are you sure that your setup doesn't have an issue?

    I'm playing Witcher 3 via Proton.

      You should be able to install that with protontricks:

        If a game has no native linux support i still dont buy it. Doesnt matter if its run w/o problems with proton or wine.

          Even on my ancient PC most things I've tried worked smoothly. A couple of games needed small fixes to work perfectly and only one (Just Cause 2) didn't work at all. Sounds like you had bad luck with your game selection.

            Nope, all my failures have been reported back to ProtonDB. And you know what I found? Usually people with similar specs (as in Mesa version, proton version and GFX card) had same results. I think most fanboys must be using nvidia at this point.

              If that's the case (and I'm not saying it's not), why? Are you saying latest stable releases (kernel/drivers etc.) are all bugged and need half a year to be usable? What's the cause here? Arch isn't using latest -dev.git32487324 builds you know.

                Mordheim, Fallout New Vegas. If you have those tell me if any work. I tried them ~1 month ago and both were failures, Mordheim started but the map and overall speed was as if I was running it on an intel card.

                  Yes, I've used Nvidia because the hardware is more power efficient and the driver status has been better, but I hear AMD support is pretty decent these days. I've successfully played several games via Proton. I remember the only issue encountered has been one game (Shadowrun returns) was unable to close itself via the menu.

                    If fallout new vegas does not work for you then the issue is on your end. It runs without issue for me, and I also use arch, and I have an rx470.

                      The greater the distance from what the developers develop and/or test on, the more likely you are to trip over a bug in Proton that they failed to catch or a bug in something else that they overlooked the need to add a workaround for.

                      Tiny differences can have huge effects if they're in the wrong place at the wrong time.
