Steam Play Proton (Linux) Compatibility List
Hi, fellow Linux gamers.

The new version of Steam Play that enables playing of Windows games within the Steam Linux client has just been released last August 21, 2018. However, the list of games confirmed by Valve to work with Proton (modified version of Wine) still contains few games.

https://steamcommunity.com/games/221410/announcements/detail/1696055855739350561

If you managed to get NieR: Automata running on Linux through Steam Play and be able to play it, kindly post relevant information about your PC such as:

1. Linux distro and its version
2. Linux kernel (state "default" if you used what comes with the distro installer)
3. CPU and GPU
4. GPU driver version
5. Steam Launch Option used (if any)
6. Proton version (state "default" if you didn't change it)


Example Post:
1. Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
2. default
3. Ryzen 5 2600X + GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
4. GeForce 396.54
5. none
6. Proton 3.7-4 beta

Seeing how NieR:Automata is on the list of games confirmed and supported by Valve to work with Proton, isn't it better to just direct people having issues to Steam Support per Valve's directions? NieR:Automata is already a verified and supported game, after all.

1. Linux Mint current whatever version
2. 4.15 maybe? Whatever is in Mint right now
3. Ryzen 1600 + GTX 1060 3GB
4. 396.54
5. None
6. Both 3.7 and 3.7.4, they provide identical experience

Game runs without additional fiddling around. XB1 controller works both wired (xpad) and wireless (xpad-neo) with no issues whatsoever.

The only issue is heavily reduced performance compared to windows when the game is at 1080p. Smooth 60 fps at 720p, but ugly graphics. Suspicion is that the increased VRAM usage caused by DXVK is too much for the 3GB version card.

As always, vsync is entirely broken on nvidia linux. Default settings only lock the frame rate, but allow tearing, forcing full composition pipeline eradicates tearing, at the cost of unbearable stuttering and terrible frame pacing. Nvidia really needs to work on bringing gaming features to Linux. AMD should work fine, as long as latest kernel and Mesa are installed.

1. openSUSE Leap 42.3
2. Default (4.4.143-65-default)
3. i7 3770k + GTX 1070 8 GB
4. Nvidia 396.54
5. none for game. For steam itself 'STEAM_RUNTIME_PREFER_HOST_LIBRARIES=0 steam'
6. Default

Seems to run fine for the first 10 minutes. Then starts to lag badly. Same happens with native version of Raise of the Tomb Raider. So might be driver related.

Steam overlay never really worked in vulkan titles on linux. Try turning it off.

I have turned it off by default. It's not it.

3. Ryzen 1700X and ASUS Radeon RX 580 8gb
4. amdgpu open source drivers and mesa 18.1.6
5. No launch options but had to open the LSI app and turn off the native run time
6. Default

Linux mint 19.1 vanila
Kernel vanila
3770 + 1080
415.25
Kde with xrender and vsync off. Game can vsync. Llvm7 installed.
Ds4 with sc-controller

Ds4 Works as is but feedback runs when It wants. Sc-controller somewhat fix that. It's not perfect.

Great performance hit compared to Windows. 1080p is smoth without hangs or stutter even with 8x msaa. Cant run at Full speed at 1440p like in Windows.

Sadly, this game is best played in Windows.

3. Fx8350 + Rx580
4. Radeon RX 580 Series (POLARIS10 DRM 3.35.0 5.4.0-60-generic LLVM 11.0.0)
v: 4.6 Mesa 20.2.6
5. none

ran perfect

1. Manjaro 20.2.1 Nibia
2. x86_64 Linux 5.10.7-3-MANJARO
3. Intel Core i7-4790K 16GB + Radeon RX 580 8GB
4. mesa-git 21.1.0 devel
5. none
6. It has worked perfectly till now with whatever version was the mainstream latest. Currently playing it with the latest beta and it is pretty much perfect.

It has improved the performance by quite a lot since the first Proton version. It ran at ~45 FPS @ 1440p at first and now it is rock solid at 60 FPS. Only the AA (since the AO pass already introduces AA) and Blur disabled.
