Wow. That didn't take very long.
In case you missed it, I published an article yesterday about the new Dead Space remaster and how it was not performing great on Deck. Well, there's a brand new fix out and it's fabulous.
Pierre-Loup Griffais posted on Twitter just a few hours ago that there's a new Proton Hotfix out that fixes the performance and crashing issues in Dead Space.
According to Pierre-Loup, the only thing you need to do is download the hotfix and the game should automatically start using the right version. If you have the game installed and you don't see the Proton Hotfix update in your downloads, then you may restart Steam (or your entire Deck).
I've tried this and it works great. Very pleased to see how well it works. And all that was needed was a 292 byte (yes, byte) update to Proton.
