Valve has released a new update for their Proton Experimental branch! This update fixes some issues in BeamNG.drive, VRChat, and Black Ops 2 zombies and multiplayer. This update also enables nvapi for a ton of games! Nvapi is a Nvidia software development kit for allowing direct access to Nvidia GPUs, so it wouldn't really help us on Steam Deck, but it is cool to see:

  • Fix black texture issues in BeamNG.drive.
  • Fix upsidedown videos in VRChat and many other games.
  • Fix Call of Duty II Zombies and Multiplayer hanging on exit.
  • Fix Bail or Jail Demo crashing when opening the Terms of Serivce.
