Proton GE 7-53 Changelog:

This is a hotfix that brings the Star Citizen specific EAC patch to upstream. It allows Star Citizen to run without needing to change the /etc/hosts file and does not interfere with EAC for other games.


Before running Star Citizen
(1) You must set SteamGameId=starcitizen environment variable to trigger the EAC workaround
(2) this script should be run to remove existing EAC files:

if [ -d \"$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/$USER/AppData/Roaming/EasyAntiCheat\" ]; then rm -rf \"$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/$USER/AppData/Roaming/EasyAntiCheat\"; fi
