    I'm not sure I fully understand what you have written, but the last time I had an issue with a Steam game failing to start properly I fixed it by uninstalling the game from Steam and then reinstalling it. The uninstall+install cleared whatever was messed up and it then ran perfectly (IL2 Battle of Stalingrad via proton, Tumbleweed, Steam from repo-non-oss).

    ok so basically NORMALLY whenu install a game with proton it will download the game then when u launch it for the first time it usually proceeds to download direct x and any other microsoft stuff it may need THEN the game will launch. my problem is that even after ire install it and delete it it never installs direcx x it jsut trys to run the game without it then fails to run. im going to try and reformat the laptop see if that fixes it
