ProtonDB is the go-to for a lot of people to see how games run on Linux desktop and Steam Deck, and while its rating system is far from perfect it's nice to have. A recent upgrade also makes it a lot nicer to browse.
When the Steam Deck released ProtonDB added dedicated Steam Deck reports to game pages, which ended up making it quite a mess - especially for PC players where every page would have you scroll and scroll until you go to the desktop Linux reports — but no more!
Now there's a nice tabbed selection between them, you can link to the specific platform and it will remember your selection. Much much better. Example from the Cyberpunk 2077 listing:
Here's all that's changed for ProtonDB:
- There is now a tabbed submenu above reports on game pages.
- In this menu, you can now filter by PC, Steam Deck, or a combined list.
- Steam Deck reports now paginate and you can view beyond the first list of 40 reports.
- When you select an item in the device submenu, the URL is updated and can be shared to send someone directly to reports corresponding to your selection.
- Your selection is remembered and all future game pages will default to your selection unless the URL specifies otherwise.
Good to see some needed upgrades!
