  1. What do I do for the game that shows running but does not launch like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 single player?

  2. Hello, i have a problem, when i run any command of protontricks it shows "protontricks: command not found", what do I need to do?

  3. mmm.. yeah thnks but no, to much turns I will still stay with the w

  4. Hey man love your vid! this is basically exactly what I was looking for. Could you explain to me this answer I got on the GalliumNine github ? he's basically saying support is being dropped in favor of protontricks? how do we get gallium and dx12 with protontricks I don't get it?

  5. 8:40 so these won't work if I don't add sudo?

  6. Chris another great video bud, keep up the good work!

  7. God this shit is way too complicated for me.
    I better stick to my dualboot Windows 10.

  8. Great video.

  9. Path of Excile options explanation somehow wasn't in the video part and only audio. Starting from around 5:16 you open properties and the new window was either offscreen or just not recorded.

  10. "/usr/local/bin/python3: No module named pip"

    "[lowell@Lowells-Desktop ~]$ python3
    Python 3.7.2 (default, Feb 6 2019, 17:20:04)
    [GCC 8.2.1 20181215 (Red Hat 8.2.1-6)] on linux
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information."

    Any ideas? Because an RPM or appimage would just be too damn much work I guess.

  11. Thanks for simplifying this process. Going to start deep diving into Linux alternatives for pc gaming 🙂

  12. Esync out of the box is unusable on most Linux systems. However, after increasing your system file descriptors from 4096 to something north of 500,000 – it ran a little faster than if esync was completely disabled and also eliminates the tearing. With Esync on and left at 4096 defaults – I was getting a horrible frame rate. This allows "most" of my games to be played as good as my Windows partition (in fact, I have only VR games and overwatch on the windows side now)

    EDIT: Here is the link if anyone is interested.

  13. Hey, Chris, If you like Zelda type adventure games you need to check this one out:

  14. awesome! thank you for the tip about proton gallium nine i've been wondering how to do something like this for a while. for anyone stuck like i was on Ubuntu 18.04.2 i had to run "apt-get install libd3dadapter9-mesa libd3dadapter9-mesa:i386 mesa-vdpau-drivers mesa-vdpau-drivers:i386" and for the steam command PROTON_GALLIUM_NINE_MODULEPATH="/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/d3d/" PROTON_USE_GALLIUM_NINE=1 GALLIUM_HUD="simple,fps" %command%

  15. there's a guide on Reddit wich explain how to install dotnet 4.7 without problems in a 32-64 prefix. doesn't work with winetricks or protontricks

  16. This is one of the few things i've not done in Linux yet, I need to get my games migrated so I can spend all my time in Linux. Right now not all my games can work sadly, but i know pci-e passthrough is a option I can explore for that last bit to not dual boot anymore.

  17. Hey Chris, your version of Protontricks doesn't work for me but … I use the legacy version "" and it works. I had a troublemaker, the game Race 07 of Simbim. It did not detect my video card memory. I just swiched the wineprefix to Windows XP and had no problem setting up my video setting. Then I switched back to Windows 7 later on.

  18. I can't tell enoug how much i appreciate your content! Thank you very much! It's inspiring!

  19. you are talking but we can't see what you are doing… from minute 5 to 7 or so

  20. Proton is Sorcery :- . Valve is ruled by witches and wizards.

  21. Thanks…I'm going to try it for Train Simulator…Hopefully I can get it to work.

  22. Fantastic video. bookmarked for future reference. Thank you

  23. Did anyone managed to install wine 4.0-3 from the AUR in manjaro? Its building it forever, have to use RC6 🙁

  24. Are you using AMDGPU-PRO or MESA driver?
    They haven't update their Proton for a long time, I really hope that it could contain the latest WINE in it.

  25. think you so much for making this video prior to this i end up wiping my 2nd HDD just to get the new resident evil 2 to work installing lutris version that i'm stuck at the loading screen installing mf in wine tricks etc

  26. I can't upvote your video enough! Thank you!

  27. I really appreciate you making this video. I'm busy with college right now, but I can see myself going back and finding this tutorial in a few months.

  28. Thank you Chris most helpful. Could you look into and how to best set it up? I use Lutris for now but it's sucks for every time Blizzard pushes a patch I need to make changes or it won't work. Most interest in wow and Diablo 3.

  29. Awesome video! I didn't have time to research it to that level so I just gave up on Path of Exile. Now I can try it again.

  30. Wow. Good to see all of this is at least possible.. but still a bit of a head scratcher. Someone should write a Steam plugin or something to take care of all this automatically..

  31. Hey there, you available Sunday 2pm EST for next Ubuntu show?

  32. I am really looking forward to the full release of the Steam update as I am a huge fan of the original Splinter Cell games and they seem to work flawlessly in Proton as well as the Widescreen patches but I only have them on GOG and other places so being able to add custom exe/non-Steam games and be able to use Proton within the client for those purposes is awesome for me I wont have to use Lutris too much

  33. 4:34 to 4:50 has anyone confirmed if disabling esync solves stutter problem playing Crisis 1 via Lutris? Sorry if that sounds incoherent to Steam, still learning here.

  34. Hardcore bruh. Imma have to come back to this later. So. Much. Information.
    well done. 10/10

  35. This is the video I have been looking forward to. Nice work.

  36. Wow, nice video man!

  37. The sign in the background is telling me to do things :O i feel the overlords are taking over my brain 😀 great video as always 🙂 i will for sure try some of those things 🙂
