Sonic Colors with Proton Experimental

A couple of days ago, a new Proton Experimental update was released that got some new games running on the Steam Deck and fixed some crashes for others! Sonic Colors: Ultimate is now playable, Wine Mono was updated, and some Proton 9.0 regressions were fixed to make Overwatch 2 no longer randomly crash, and videos will now play in Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition.

The update should automatically be downloaded, but overall, it's an awesome one! You can check the downloads tab for the new update.

  • Now playable: Sonic Colors: Ultimate.
  • Initial d3d12 support for OpenVR (e.g.: Battlezone Gold Edition in DX12 mode).

  • Updated Wine Mono to 9.1.0.
