        Did those ER threads have a link to the new deck thread when the old one was dying out or hit bump limit? Because I don't recall seeing that, but I do see that happening in every deck thread.

        see if using the TDP limiter in the steam overlay helps with the power draw. just put it 1 notch above before you start to see performance dips. in most cases for native pc games you can get like +30 minutes of battery life for free

          is it crashing while playing the game or from opening quick access/steam menu?

          most of my crashes come from opening either of these during like a game loading or something, just need to be more patient in most cases

            just random crashes, I think while a lot of things are going on since I'm playing on higher difficulty with the cpu's all boosting or if a lot of collisions are happening, but it really just feels random. Even during navigating f zeroes menu I get random crashes.
            I should also mention, it's not hard steam deck crashes but emulator crashes where it pauses and resets the emulator.

                I caught this right at a small frame dip it does before it possibly crashes. My power tool settings, I used to run 4 cpu threads with no issue so thats what i've been doing, been cycling between 3 and 4 threads in desperation. I also turned on Frequency limits on the gpu clock, minimum Mhz at 900, max 1600. Also, turned on V-sync in dolphin. I'm gonna see if I can catch a screenshot when it crashes but it might have to wait until tomorrow, I have work in the morning

                yea your GPU clock isn't locked in this screengrab, you want to lock the GPU at 1300 or 1600

                well idk if you are still here but these are my recommended settings for f-zero gx
                i just played through 4/5 maps in expert grand prix and got no crashes and performance felt great

                it might be a dumb question but are you accidentally pressing start and select at the same time? that is the hotkey that emudeck creates to close out of a game.

I wasn't setting an F-zero gx profile for performance settings, I just ran default and messed with powertools. I still got like one quick frame drop during the race that might of come from master cpu's boosting all together or something. Thanks buddy

      From what I heard this usually means someone stole your shit, which means 2 weeks waiting to be able to report it to steam followed by at least 2 more weeks for it to once again be delivered. Unless it gets stolen again, after all steam will send it from the exact same service once again.

              Ear buds and phones are supposed to be banned nowadays. Doesn't stop morons from trying to sneak them in either by hiding them in their bags or empty chip bags or coming through the docking gates instead of the metal detector entrance. Honestly it's a wonder that more Decks don't show up fucked with how we handle packages. The trailers are two-tiered with a bottom and top half but the packages aren't sorted at all which means your Deck could be crushed underneath some big ass furniture. And then by the nature of how packages come down the belt could easily just be thrown in a truck along with 10 other packages depending if the loader is overwhelmed or not.

      For future reference to any any Anons wishing to open their decks, you will see guides telling you to use a size 0 phillips-head. This is false. A size 1 works much better. Use firm pressure straight down and go slow, the screws they use are very soft.

    Would there be less shitposting in these threads if more Anons were able to convey their opinions like that? I agree that the Deck is better than the Switch, but that sentiment can be expressed without shitting on the people that like the Switch. It's not about the Switch itself, but shitposters attacking anyone who may prefer one piece of plastic over the other. Hell, there would be a lot less shitposting on Ganker if Anons learned how to say that they like a game or platform without shitting on those who happen to like another system or platform.

    Personally, I respect the Switch for proving that the demand for a system that can function as a handheld and console is greater than the demand for another boring console. Consoles bore me because they haven't changed since the PS3/360 whereas portables are more exciting and there's a lot more growth in that area. The Deck is the next step in the Switch's design philosophy.

        >bought a 6750 XT instead for $612 Canadian
        >Canadian

        So they don't have wait times now? Why the reservation bullshit to turn away customers?

          The deck was released when scalping was rampant, the reservation system was made to make sure that decks were being sold to actual users instead of some chink who was only gonna put them up on ebay for the highest bidder.

    After putting some more ROMs on my 1TB microsd card, it now shows that it has 16.1TB free in storage. Everything is functioning correctly, except that it shows the wrong amount of space available. Is it fucked and I should format it, or is there an easy fix?

      It sounds like you got a counterfeit sd card, where they edited the cards controller to report false information to the computer.
      1. Make a backup of everything on your sd card
      2. Copy a ton of videos, images, music, whatever to your sd card, until it's full
      3. Try to play/read a bunch of the media files, both ones that were put on early and those that were put on late. If any of the media files don't play properly, this means the memory controller on the sd card is just overwriting stuff and misreporting to the computer.

        It's not a counterfeit, I've filled it up with like 900gb of games and they all work properly, it's just that it recently started showing that there is 16.1 tb of free space, even though I know that there is actually around 50gb left.

        This is their dumbest decision, they've changed the packaging a little but it still has valve shit all over it. They should put a plain outer box around it with a different shape.

      Steam deck has bluetooth, so you don't actually need a hub for keyboard and mouse.

        That drive you posted doesn't allow for charging while using the usb hub. Plus the steam deck would end up powering the keyboard, mouse, and whatever else is plugged into it, further killing the deck's shitty battery.

      1) don't use the yuzu emudeck sets you up with (aka the flatpak). you want the EA auto updating appimage found here:
      pineappleea.github.io/
      1.5) it's annoying but this means you will need to manually add the (superior) EA app image as a non-steam game, rename it as the game you want, modify it to boot directly into game for each switch game, and then re-grab library assets from grid.db for the game in question
      2. that ' you are wondering about needs to be removed, see pic for the correct target line (jp version of 13 sentinels)

          under removable devices click 'primary'
          emulation > storage > yuzu > nand > user > save > 0000000000 > BC5E8821... (this might be different for you, just check the error mesage)

          after that you just click the folder that matches up with your dump and what you need should be there.

        I guess I'll just wait until the battery is dead and then I'll take it to a professional or something. A good opportunity to slap in those gulikits and a new SSD too.

          top part (youtube screengrab) is the read/write speeds
          bottom part is the *random* read/write speeds, which occur while you are playing games

          if you buy the 1TB one yes it is considerably more money, not worth buying unless its on sale or you really can't be arsed to use more than 1 sd card
          512 evo select is the best overall for price and performance.

          if you set it up through emudeck, the default parser uses the Yabause core, but you can manually swap to either YabaSanshiro/Beetle/Kronos if needed. (I'm using YabaSanshiro for Grandia due to cinematic glitches but everything else i've tired has been fine on Yabause)

          Switch is really a gamble, it depends on the game.

          name a game, i suspect you aren't using the yuzu EA app image + powertools to the best of your ability.
          i admit xenoblade chronicles 3 and splatoon 3 do not run great right now in advance. the other games i've had issues with are like random shitty VNs and some shmups but otherwise its been great.

            Yabause is seriously outdated though. It gets updated now by a different team and is uoyabause but the emulation is still shitty with its biggest problem being the glitch were bgm/sfx mess up and the emulator crashes and you then need to open task manager to fix it

              To throw my two cents in, I was messing with Yabause core in Retroarch and it wouldn't play music in the games I tried. That sounds like the glitch you're describing. I got tired of trying to tweak it so I switched to Beetle and it works alright.

        The way I thought of it was I had a list of switch ports I wanted, and when the deck got announced I had all those games on steam and I realized if I just got a deck the potential cost of the ports would run way more than the top tier deck, they would probably run worse and I wouldn't have to wait for them to MAYBE get ported. I made my pre-order first hour, and I've had it since May. It's been great

    I keep looking into things like PS3 emulation, particularly interested in Demon's Souls. The performance looks great and all, but the vids I've seen have the poor thing running at a crispy 80C or more. Is it ok to just straight up run games at 80, sometimes even 90C? It seems to me like thatt would age your deck very quickly.

      You can get one on Ebay for $70-$100.
      Alternatively, my preferred PC controller is still a USB Xbox 360 controller, also found on Ebay. If you need to use mouse input you can map one of the joysticks to it (optionally with a button chord) but joystick mouse might not be very comfortable.
      Also alternatively, you could "dock" your Steam Deck to a TV with a USB-C extension cable and continue using the Deck as your controller.

          Hubs work fine, but not all of them. You can find info online about specific brands/models people have tested with the deck, and some Amazon pages for hubs will have people mention Deck compatibility in their reviews.
          I haven't had any issues with this, but it's pricier: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08SLS9W72

          Also, some modern TVs just have USB-C input now, which means you could plug the Deck in directly. You want to make sure whatever cable you use is rated for the amount of data you'll be pumping through it and is not just a USB-C charging cable, though. I think "USB-C 3.2 Gen 2x2" is what you need to look for. Most of those cables list speeds up to 20Gbps.

        In my experience the cheap ones that don't support 4K60 might have trouble on 4K displays. I think the Deck detects the external resolution and attempts to upscale the image itself and pipe 4K to the hub even if the hub can't handle it.
        I tried one of those cheap ones and although it would work on a mediocre 720p TV, I got severe input lag/signal delay on a much larger TV, although a 4K60 Dockteck hub worked fine on the same TV.

                I don't think the etched glass sucks, but it's hardly worth the price premium to me.
                I've compared a 64gb screen with an armorsuit matte screen protector and a 512gb etched glass, and the screen clarity is better, but only marginally.

              also the 64's screen is naturally more vibrant without this.

              but the main reason why the 64 version is superior is because you can save $200 by replacing the SSD yourself

                Based on your image, it looks like even doing that would be a downgrade for the 64GB, though.
                They both have the same amount of obscured space (the light fixture) but the one with anti-glare additionally has a huge halo of light around that further clouding the screen.
                Does anti-glare (in general, not even just with the 512GB's screen) grant a bigger improvement in situations with indirect/smaller light sources?

          Etched glass diffuses and reduces light slightly. If you're in an environment with a small light behind you, the anti glare will cause the light to be too faint to be really noticed. If you're in an area with bright light, you'll have a diffused mess all over your screen while the regular glass will act like a mirror showing a perfect image of the light source on your screen. The anti glare also helps prevent you from seeing a reflection of your own face in the screen while playing, or at least reducing it. Not worth the cost though, imho.

              it rendered everything too dark with stock proton, but with Proton GE it looks fine and loading between levels works flawlessly, so I'd say it works.

    I know a lot of people don't like 343 but Halo Infinite is one of the few AAA FPS games that work on the Steam Deck (and I'm not a fan of Apex's gameplay). Holy crap playing a chaotic Big Team Battle on a handheld is crazy. Basically a locked 30 fps. It only dips to like 26 when there's a shit ton of grenades going off at once. Stays playable the whole time and I won a few matches on the Deck.

      Titanfall 2 (AAA, though not recent) runs completely fine on the Deck, solid 60 fps at all times.
      I think my biggest problem with playing FPS on the Deck is that after not having played on console for so long, I have a shit time trying to hit anything with analog sticks, even with aim assist. Halo's pretty much the only FPS I feel comfortable using a controller in, and it's pretty slow-paced compared to most.

    DoubleShake is a fun Klonoa feeling game and it gets my approval of cute brown girl in a fun game. It's a low poly game so I find it very cool cranking up all the crust settings to and feeling like you're playing on a DS or PSP on the Deck.
    The lego game was a neat puzzle game where you have to build lego structures to progress. Everything is made out of legos too which just looks very visually appealing.

      I don't see why not. It is a computer, after all. I'm not sure if the necessary services would be running in game mode, but certainly in desktop mode.

    In game performance is the same. Any hit you would take is made up for by the fact you're not going through 2-3 compatibility layers, because everything is running natively.

    Should I get a 64 gb version? I'm a bit low on funds, due to this Ukraine stuff.

      If you're low on funds you shouldn't get one at all

    I like that it's possible to add the same program as a non-Steam game multiple times with different arguments. I can have browser-based stuff like Pokemon Showdown or Youtube as self-contained "games" aside from my regular web browser in my library.

    Its like I am using a completely different unit to all you fags, and all of this "how can I get x to work" posts make no sense. Everything just runs perfectly.

    Realistically how long would I have to wait for a "Steam Deck 2" or a "Steam Deck Light"?

    I love the idea of this but it seems pretty bulky as even the Switch is kind of uncomfortable to play in bed unless I'm playing something turn based. Anything action or fast paced (like Splatoon or something) I just don't want to play with anything but a controller.

                It's just the schizo trying to make the thread reach bump limit while saging.

                So?
                These stupid patterns never work, look at the actually current situation isntead.

        I don't buy cheap stuff made from Chinese companies. I've learned my lesson with a few emulation machines in the past.

    But people said this hasn't been working for years now?
