Tekken 8 Proton Experimental

A new Proton Experimental update was released yesterday, and while it didn't bring any new playable games with it, it did fix some issues with other ones. Tekken 8 got a fix for reporting the wrong connection type, crashes, and font rendering is improved in Cosmoteer, the main menu in Call of Cthulhu will not loop correctly, and Wine's virtual desktop mode will not work again!

It is a small update overall, but it's great to see changes no matter what.
