Proton GE 7-42 Released: Includes Updates and Fixes

Glorious Eggroll has released the latest Proton GE, version 7-42.

The latest outing includes updates to dxvk-nvapi, dxvk, vkd3d, along with a host of different proton fixes. If you’re yet to check out Proton GE, be sure to check out my guide to getting Proton GE set up correctly on the Steam Deck. It’s much easier than you think. Promise.

For those unfamiliar with Proton GE, think of it as a custom version of Proton with a different set of fixes. Whereas Proton is developed by Valve, Proton GE isn’t. If Proton doesn’t work with a certain game, Proton GE may be the difference-maker.
