    No, the point of "click to install and click to play" has nothing to do with Proton but with Steam. You can get wine-staging and DXVK the same way with Lutris.

    Yes, there's a lot of that preventing games from working. I mentioned FarCry New Dawn... I believe that one works because it's not using Ubisoft's asshole anti-cheat software. (It doesn't really have multiplayer, just the ability to play co-op).

    Otherwise you could modify Wine to give you unfair advantages.
    But I want to compile my own Wine because the default compiler options are horrible. That's so lame, give up the advantage of open source.

    Ethan lee said in the video above that proton adds wine staging patches. He was not specific if they add all or some.

    Uplay can log in now. Rendering is partly broken, the login window is fully transparent, at least on my Mint Cinnamon install it seems. However, if you can log in blind, it works and games seem to run fine.

    Warframe works now via Lutris.

    I still have issues with UE based games. Yes, they are playable, but the slowdowns and freezes really kills their enjoyment.
