World of Warships Proton GE

Yesterday, two small hotfixes for Proton GE were released. The first one, 8-18, added in the Alan Wake protonfix, which was forgotten in 8-17. The second one, 8-19, added a workaround for World of Warships login hang. Both are smaller updates, so unless you are playing one of these two games, I wouldn't say it's necessary, but it isn't a bad idea to download 8-19 if you haven't updated yet.

For those who don't know about Proton GE, how to get it on the Steam Deck, or how to update, check out our Proton GE guide! We go over all of this and explain why having GE is important.

Proton GE 8-18 Update Changelog:

  • For some reason the Alan Wake protonfix was missing from the last release even though it was noted in the release notes. This is a small hotfix to actually add it this time.

Proton GE 8-19 Update Changelog:

  • Added workaround that fixes World of Warships login hang introduced in upstream proton since GE-Proton8-5: ValveSoftware#333 (comment)
