Proton 4.2-6 has been released

 Proton 4.2-6 has been released

  • More fixes for the new Steam networking API. A Hat In Time's online multiplayer should be functional now.
  • DXVK 1.2.1 has been rebuilt with a modern compiler. This should increase performance especially for 32-bit games. (Note, if you build Proton yourself in Vagrant, you will want to make clean and vagrant provision to take advantage of the new compiler; or simply destroy and re-create the VM.)
  • Update FAudio to 19.06.
  • Fix for more games on non-English locales, like GRID.
  • Fix controller rumble in some games, including Team Sonic Racing.
  • Improve font rendering in SpellForce 3.
