Deep Rock Galactic Proton GE 8-21

A new version of Proton GE, 8-21, was released early this morning, and it comes with some nice updates for FSR! The new update fixes washed-out colors when FSR is disabled, a crash in DOOM Eternal because of incorrect screen resolution detection, and an upstream patch for libreVR Revive. There is also a more accurate screen resolution detection method for FSR that has been implemented!
