ProtonDB links added to all PCGamingWiki articles


Recommended Posts

After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.

The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.

Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform. 

Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.

      Over the past few years I've been trying as much as possible to get away from buying games through DRM restricted sources, mainly buying from GoG.com and Itch.io when available, and pages like The big list of DRM-free games on Steam has been INVALUABLE for identifying games on Steam that can be downloaded and backed up. One thing I've been looking into is games that contain ROMs that can be played in emulators. Things like the SEGA Classics Collection just have the raw ROMs in the folder, but some other games they're embedded in the game data. I've found a few bits of custom python scripts here and there for extracting them, but it's been difficult tracking some of them down. For example, I found scripts to extract ROMs from Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection but not Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2.
      If there was a dedicated section on The big list of DRM-free games on Steam page specifically for ROMs that can be found in purchased games it'd make it easier to centralize all known ways to get the ROMs out. Maybe actually pointing to software for extracting the ROMs is against site terms, I'm not sure, but at the very least a list of games known to contain raw ROMs, or maybe even ROMs that can be easily extracted with an archive manager, would be a helpful resource.

      This exe fixes a game breaking bug in the Steam version, also makes it so all cut-scenes play correctly, this file was taken from a 2001 disk version that does not have these problems.

      This is simply a patched .exe from the Steam version of the game that resolves the performances issues, it saves you having to do the hex edit yourself.
      I don't believe it works for the GOG version, but you're welcome to try it out for yourself.

      The Steam version of FlatOut is the v1.0 version. This is the v1.1 patch for FlatOut that works with the Steam release. GOG is already patched to v1.1, and does not need this patch.
      Originally posted by Clya900, the patch was missing 2 files are now included in this download, patch1.bfs, and patch.ini. Without these files, the game would fail to load, and shows a Runtime error. The game now has been tested on the Steam version, and works perfectly fine.

      Why is this game lagging when steam is in online mode? Everytime in the menus too. It drops to 1 fps for 10 seconds and that repeats. Whenever I go into offline mode this problem dissapears. But why does this game work like this?
