To do

  • Tests coverage
  • Refactor code to be more safe
  • Refactor code to work with clap for better args
  • Receive single app-id through args
  • Receive single game name through args
  • Better way to handle filtering out DLCs
  • More to come...

Known issues

  • DLC filtering is kinda bad, right now, if you have 0 hours on record in any steam product, it won't be included in protondb-check list, since Steam doesn't count hours on DLC's, soundtracks, etc.

If anything else occurs, feel free to submit to issues page, otherwise, you can join Discord server.
