that sounds like a proton bug we are aware of. There is currently no workaround or fix we can apply as the bug goes really deep
have you tried using the most recent proton version?
I watched the video tutorial and for me it seems up to date and very clear. Please tell is which part is outdated and which part is unclear so we can update them.
And for the rest:
Which game is it?
What is "button mashing"?
Some games are known to take all input so Aurora doesn't get any. I read that switching to window mode or desktop mode fixes that.
No its not, multiple players are confused why their protonup has nothing inside. Like tinker tools.
And there's no specified proton version mentioned in post Wich is crucial otherwise everything crashes in 16s.
I got latest tinker12.12
Tried in proton experimental and stable.
Tried with final fantasy xv.
All input is lost, so you can press any button and nothing happens only when you open up keyboard it inputs in searchbar.
Don't know what you mean by window mode, I'd dosnt work in Linux desktop nor desk launcher
Some games don't work in gaming mode. Other games don't work on fullscreen while on desktop mode. Which is going on with your FFXV, use desktop mode, hit alt+enter while in the game and that will switch from fullscreen to windowed. Or get to the point of the game you can change settings then go from fullscreen to windowed/borderless. I just tested it on mine and this was the issue. You also should change some settings to lower fps.
As for the crashing thats a steam deck issue, not a proton issue. You will need proton 7.X for certain games cause they dont play well with 8.0+, both versions run fine for me.
As for the tutorial only thing that needs to be added is that steam needs to be restarted, if its already opened, when steam tinker gets installed. In the video Eli never opens steam which is why it works for him, but most have steam already opened.
