Bioshock 2 Remastered spacebar bug and solution

If you have Bioshock 2 Remastered, you know that these editions can be quite buggy. I've met the famous "press space bar to continue" for nothing bug, and here is a simple solution if you are playing on Linux.

In Steam, click on the game with right mouse button and choose Properties, then find Set Launch Options… and there copy & paste this one line:

PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% -nointro

Click OK and start the game. You won't see the logos at the beginning and with that the bug also disappears. Faster loading, and we can finally play the game!
