    Somehow I don't have this problem on Steam Deck. My guess ist that the Deck verified program does mark for a known good proton version for the game and this isn't aktiv for the normal steam client on the desktop.
    I use Lutris as a front end for launching games, and that does let you "pin" particular WINE/Proton/DXVK versions to your game when you find a combination that works well.

    Let's say you buy a Steam Deck and you're not opting in for beta/preview OS updates nor any experimental version of Proton or any wine bottles, proton-GE or any of that.
    Just turn it on and install the default stable updates.

    Then out of nowhere Baldur's Gate 3 (a triple-A game) starts crashing due to some game update.
    And if you don't do any of the above.. you'll have to wait for Proton 8.0 v5 (stable) to have it working again.
    I praise Valve (and all other parties such as Collabora etc) for lifting gaming on Linux to the next level, but it's not on the PS/Xbox console level yet.

    Last week, it was a, find all the cats in the picture game, that would only show a black screen with the newest proton version.
