Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Waves » Waves now playable on Linux with Proton 4.11

It’s been a long time coming but with Valve rolling out Proton 4.11 Waves is finally playable on Linux via emulation.

Waves uses DirectX 9c which previously wasn’t supported by Proton but 4.11 has added DX9 support finally making this (and presumably many other Unreal 3 based games) playable.

I personally tested it on Ubuntu 18.04 using the latest stable nVidia drivers (430) and it ran buttery smooth with no issues.

This has required no code updates from me so it will not affect anybody already running the game on Windows.

Oh and if you enjoy the game I’d really appreciate it if you check out the Sequel: Waves 2: Notorious which is in Early Access right now. #shamelessplug
