It wasn’t that long ago since we were talking about the release of Proton GE 7-42, but just in time for Christmas Glorious Eggroll is back with another update.

Updates this time around include the ability to play Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising, a fix to stop Witcher 3 crashing when selecting NVIDIA Hairworks, another fix for Baldur’s Gate 3, as well as a host of updates for DXVK, VKD3D, and Wine.

The full list of changes follow…

  • import upstream proton changes
  • Immortals: Fenix Rising now playable
  • added launcher skip (again) for Baldur’s Gate 3 — runs vulkan version by default
  • added fix for Gears 5 hang after hitting enter on logo screen
  • added fix for game drive option not being applied properly to elder scrolls online (fixes installation — still need to hit space at black window)
  • added fix for Witcher 3 — no longer crashes on hairworks
