Q: How do I select what version of proton a game will use?
You can select a different proton version for a game to use by opening that games properties menu
Navigate to the Compatibility section.
Now check the “Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool” option. When you do that you’ll notice a new dropdown will appear below.
You can now use this dropdown to select any Proton version installed on your system.
It’s very easy to select a custom Proton version to use when running a game with Steam. If you like to tinker you’ll be using this all the time, and you’ll find these steps mirrored in many of our other tutorials. Enjoy your system and happy gaming.
