    how big of a sd card should I get for emu games?
    I see 1tb ones for $20 on Amazon but those have to be extremely slow, right? send like the regular brands are around $130+ for that much storage.

      Either get a sandisk extreme 1tb or a samsung evo select 512gb. Those are the best performing micro SDs. The evo select is especially affordable if you can deal with less storage, which I'm sure 512gb is overkill for emulation.

        so samsung, sandisk extreme, and pny all seem to be close enough that whatever's cheapest among them.
        it looks like these advertise speeds of like 130 read but they can't break 100?

      ok, I ordered the 512 samsung evo select.
      I'm case anybody is curious, evo select is the amazon exclusive brand but exact same as evo plus.

      I know this is bait, but sometimes there's games you just need to have installed.
      Diablo 2 for example. I've had it installed for 20 years. I play it for a while, drop it for a few months with maybe one login per month, then grind it again.

    I've been enjoying playing a bunch of indies on the deck, but 3d fps and such not as much as i thought. Like, things seem way too tiny on the screen for fps. I tried both DRG and L4D2, and everything just seems too tiny to make out.

      My experience with FPS has been the opposite, it's been flawless for me.

      when i bought my deck i genuinely didn't think I was ever going to install windows or even need it

      not even a month later and I just installed windows 10 on it and holy shit it's a world of difference

      no fucking around with lutris or bottles or boilr or proton or wine or any of that retarded shit, just torrent, install, and run

      steamos is genuinely garbage and can't even run a ton of games like riddick or deadly premonition

      I plan on picking up the smallest USB 3 2230 SSD enclosure and velcroing it to the back of the deck for when I need windows for shit like VNs, but for 9 out of 10 games steam OS has been great.

      I was thinking of picking up Signalis but I see it's on gamepass as well so I'm having a hard time justifying paying for it separately just to play on deck. I had the same issue with P5R. I wish gamepass games were just supported on it without streaming or having to run windows, I think I might just cancel it if that price hike they're threatening comes in next year.

    Beat DOOM II vanilla today for the first time ever. Played it many times those past few years but I always dropped it because the levels of the midgame are really bad. Later levels are better and I really enjoyed the "fight" against the Icon of Sin. Currently replaying Thy Flesh Consumed, and will probably replay Sigil next. Don't know which WAD I'll play after those, maybe Evinernity or Ancient Aliens. Any recommendations?
    Game feels great on the Deck btw, specialy if you play without freelook.

    So the other day I gave Deep Rock Galactic a try again since it updated. Ran great at first but something cause it to drop frames into the single digits. Anyone ever had something like that happen? Made me also wonder if the deck supports directx 12 since I don't know shit about linux.

    • 3 weeks ago

      All versions of DirectX are proprietary Microsoft crap. Proton supports DirectX by translating games' DirectX API calls to Vulkan API calls. For DirectX 12, this is done using VKD3D; for DirectX 9/10/11, it uses DXVK.
      There's a chance that I got some minor details wrong, but no chance that I care.
