      Has Switch emulation gotten better on it or something? I tested it back when I got my deck back in July and Xenoblade 2 ran like ass in both Yuzu EA and Ryujinx.

      switch emulation is better than it was back then, but dont expect xenoblade 2 or 3 on the deck any time soon.

        Download lutris on the deck, from the discover store
        Install the game on your PC and move the install directory to your deck
        Open lutris, click the + sign and add the exe
        Click play. If it does, add a steam shortcut if you want

        This method works for 80% of games for me. Good luck

      It’s a little tricky at first but I’ve since become well versed. There’s many methods to try, one is to simply add the entire directory of a previously installed on windows game and use steam add non steam game to library with compatibility mode forced to proton. This has worked well. Other option is to use lutris and install through that. And also there’s an option where you use the first method but instead you add the setup or installer file to steam and install it into steam using compatibility mode then point to the installed wine exe after

      I know.. it’s tricky but this really is not a PlayStation- it’s for power users

      You can always emulate the wiiu version anyway.

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      everyone just emulates BOTW using the wiiu version so you can get 40+ fps
      but i'd say 75-80% of the switch library runs full speed or is perfectly playable for the genre (digimon survive for example only runs 40 fps during the combat sections but it's a tactical rpg)
      games that didn't run full speed for me were random VNs and SHMUPs. 92/125 games for me worked through some combation of the yuzu EA app image and ryuujinx openGL

    • 1 month ago

      BOTW doesn't work so good on traditional PCs as it is since there's no incentive to emulate that one when it runs better on CEMU.

      For the record it runs fine on CEMU on Switch Deck.

      dont hype yourself for some graphical powerhouse. 40 fps is actually oddly smooth, i was a pc fag who refused to go below 60, but if your game wont make 60, 40 fps is oddly smooth compared to 30. you need some beta branch or something to get the 40 to show up on the frame locker.

        Nah I know it's still just a handheld and I know pushing the thing will only lead to a faster battery drain. But I have a huge backlog and the Deck is going to help a bunch with clearing that up. Also I can finally try and get the 7 Day Survivor achievement in Dead Rising

    New Steam Survey is out.
    Deck up to 13.72% of GNU/Linux users on Steam, and GNU/Linux is up to 1.27% total, about 1.8 million.
    Some of that is probably on Valve removing fake Chinese Windows 10 accounts padding out the numbers. Its down 4% and Windows as a whole is down .8%.
    This means that GNU/Linux grew slightly faster than creation of fake accounts in China, and that the number of Steam Decks that have actually gotten a survey is up to somewhere between 250k and 300k. Still an undercount, but it seems to be growing rapidly. Already the most used distro and most used GPU among GNU/Linux users.

      by default powertools isn't really doing much for you

        I tried playing metal arms through dolphin and fiddling with powertools and all dropping the threads/turning off smt did was make the CPU hotter and didn't affect fps at all

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          can't speak for that particular game but not only do you want to drop the threads like you've done, you will likely want to turn on CPU boost to make their output greater. you may also want to use the steam overlay and set the GPU clock to 1200 or higher (sometimes you have to toggle it on and off for it to stick)

          but if a game is already performant enough you should err on the side of caution when using CPU boost.

          not every game needs it and sometimes (pokemon snap on the switch) certain sections will cause it to ramp up to like 25W and make your fans hit 6000+ rpm when it runs just fine with it being off.

          but yea toggle on persist and per-game profile settings and you shouldn't have to worry about settings accidentally bleeding over into other games.

            I did all that and it still made no difference besides making the CPU hotter, whereas in fzero GX both of those things made noticeable performance improvements

            also isn't CPU boost enabled by default, even without power tools?

        uh anons? My default settings for Power tool threads is 8 and max boost is set to 2.8 (highest setting for both).

        I tried changing it but it seems to always just default back to 8 cores and 2.8hz. How do I force this to change when it turns on?

        I always have it running with 8 cores and 2.8ghz since I cant force it to change on reboot.
