Hey Guys,
I am a new Windows to Linux convert, loving it so far, and the abilities are just amazing. But I am still very fresh to Linux. I have installed Linux on my pc, got my usual games working, but my question lies around GTA V . can this be played on Linux Mint and if so how? I am very new so in the simplest way possible :p

The newest version since 7.x is the current version, that video is from a while ago but it still explains how it works.

Yea I tried 7.0-2 but it errored in Steam so I changed it to 5.0-10 as he had in the video and then it was fine.

Some games have trouble with newer versions and some games will have trouble launching, then you can look them up on protondb.com to see how with what launch options other people got them running.

i use GE-Proton 7.16 Since the wine-proton is a couple Versions behind Steam-Proton.
Also just to clarify i have installed Steam in Wine and i dont use native steam.

also this are the launch options i run with.

Code:
gamemoderun mangohud  DXVK_HUD=compiler DXVK_ASYNC=1 DXVK_STATE_CACHE=1 DXVK_STATE_CACHE_PATH=/mnt/Games/Chash/GrandTheftAutoV __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE=1 __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_SKIP_CLEANUP=1 __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_PATH=/mnt/Games/Chash/GrandTheftAutoV DXVK_LOG_PATH=/mnt/Games/Chash/GrandTheftAutoV __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=NVIDIA %command%

me playing on Native Steam with GE-Proton-7-20
