      Get that FPS counter off your screen boy. That shit is gay as fuck.

      It may as well be a title screen because that's the first level of the game. He's going to drop it in less than an hour and then move on to another game that he won't beat. People who play with FPS counters don't finish games.

    Do emulated 480i/p games scale well to the 800p screen? Is there noticable shimmering?

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Most 480 games are PS2 era 3d games. Those you're better off just rendering at native anyway. Sprite based consoles actually outputted at lower resolutions. Genesis was 256x192, N64 was 320x240.

        Only game I've had to run at native on PS2 so far is Rogue Galaxy. Everything else has been stable at x2.

              it kinda is. you can argue the screen is fine otherwise but the lack of color accuracy ruins everything else. why bother playing on the deck if you're not viewing games the intended way? having gamut that low means you'll perceive reds as oranges and purples as blues, if you compare your deck to a proper display it'll look like night and day.
              such a fucking shame too, any other deck alternative with comparable performance and a decent display costs twice as much and objectively isn't worth it. i would've gladly paid 100 more bucks if it meant that my deck would've came with a proper screen. fuck you gaben

                you can't calibrate the deck's screen. the most you can do is use reshade which is just a flimsy band-aid.
                >based on all reviews
                this is what pisses me off more. most reviewers don't mention color accuracy and the ones that do, shrug it off. it's a problem but most consumers are too retarded to understand what they're missing out on. if you've a deck, try comparing an image on the deck with a computer monitor and you'll see what i mean.
                >However they obviously should have gone with OLED.
                this has nothing to do with oled. yeah it would be nice but they easily could've fitted an ips screen that completely covers srgb and it wouldn't have been much more expensive.

                it pisses me off that the deck is so close to being a perfect device just for it to be brought down but one (1) problem. i'm not planning to use my deck portably anytime soon so i don't see a reason to use it over playing on my pc knowing that i'll have to deal with the washed out colors of the screen otherwise.

                It is seriously not that bad. When you can play something like the witcher 3 at high settings at a solid 30 you're far more impressed by that than brought down by colors you'd have to be looking back and forth with another screen to even tell aren't quite as vibrant.

                it is. i've already made comparisons with my monitors and switch with the deck and it's just as bad as i thought. it doesn't help that i've played most of the games that i'm playing on the deck on my pc already so the difference is even easier to spot. i'm thinking about returning it. if i do keep it though, i hope valve or some third party will start selling some proper compatible screens that i can swap it out with.

                Ok mr - so since you supposedly haven’t returned it yet, please post some comparison screens. Should be easy to do side by side with the deck.

                This is not a problem at all, no blues are purples and no oranges are red, this is quite possibly the most autistic thing I’ve read in a while & is clearly coming from someone with deck envy.

      Modern TF2 is a spaghetti code mess of updates and cosmetics held together with duct tape and string. I imagine TF2 Classic or a 2007 build of the game would run much better on the Deck.

          Mastercomfig does increase performance, just place it in /home/deck/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/tf/custom/

              It basically sets the graphics for you and edits a bunch of other options that aren't available through the options menu, a long with not garbage net config.
              Medium, Medium High, or High is what you want to use, just choose one.
              It'll download a .vpk file, you just put it into your TF2 custom directory like you would a HUD /home/deck/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/tf/custom/ and it automagically does everything for you.
              Also put the launch arguments into steam, just open the properties of tf2 and it'll be on the first screen where you paste it. Don't put in -nosteamcontroller.

          iPhone took off because of iTunes and the app store after it, and Steam Deck will do similar because of the Steam Store. The writing's on the wall.
          There's no way to compete with the Deck because of how competitively it can price itself, they can get away with 0 profit on the actual hardware because of how well owning a Deck encourages software sales.

    I have a retarded question. If you have a game installed on your PC already, can you copy the files to the steamdeck and have steam just pick them up and install straight away without redownloading them like you can between windows pcs? I know this wouldn't work for linux native games but anything you need proton for.

    every day i continue to find more and more reasons why this is basically vita 2.0
    feels fucking good man

    like my biggest gripes with the vita were how small text would be on VNs and such and this has become a non-issue, especially with the ability to toggle a magnifier.
    vita had some absolute banger exclusives (dungeon travelers 2-2 etc.) but i can't think of a reason to go back to this device ever again. many of the VNs have been ported to the switch at this point too.

    i think people are even emulating vita games with moderate success these days with vita3k or w/e

      It fucks with the temp if you get the wrong model. You need a 2230.
      Valve was warning against installing other models. For a little while people thought they were geniuses for cutting off a chunk of a 2280 to make it fit in the deck and slotting it in (since 2280s are much more available), so Valve had to come out and formally tell people that that's going to fuck your temps.
      As long as you get a 2230 there's no problem.

          Nintendo wouldn't have to be afraid of the deck if they just bothered to make sure the Switch had decent hardware since the start.

            Nintendo themselves obviously view them as a competitor. Why else would they take down Switch emulation videos on the Steam Deck specifically. If you could play every single Switch game on the thing at native (or even better), the Switch would basically become useless. That doesn't mean clueless soccer moms wouldn't be buying them still but that post-college demographic they've been striving for with the Switch is going to become that much more inaccessible.

            It completely replaces the switch as a handheld designed for the novelty of playing modern games portably. If you didn't care about nintendo first parties before, then that was literally the only reason to buy a switch.

          But yes, it's less of a performance issue and more of an emulation issue. A Steam Deck 2 is unlikely to have noticeably better performance in PS2. Shit like Shadow of the Colossus will always run like garbage.

        There's literally no reason to own a Switch in 2022.

      You are having issues installing Protontricks? If you are using the flatpak Protontricks it might have some limitations compared to the regular version (since flatpaks need to run sandboxed). I would submit your error logs to the devs they would know better than anyone. You might just have to flip a switch in flat seal or something https://github.com/Matoking/protontricks/issues. You can also try installing the AUR version, though this may get wiped in the next update: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/protontricks. Honestly if I were you though I would just emulate.

      To do that, they would need to merge the Dpad and ABXY with the touchpads again and I can't see them doing that. I can see them making it smaller and lighter where you have the Duke Xbox thing going on again, but otherwise, I can't see them conceding on such a big point.

    Just got my Steam Deck. Only played a bit of Super Meat Boy on it so far. It's nice to see Valve actually verified the Linux builds of some games instead of sucking themselves off by recommending Proton for everything.

    Is there any difference between playing a Linux game with Steam Linux Runtime and not using Steam Play at all? Every game verified to run "native" is actually set to use Steam Linux Runtime, which is also the only option for running the native versions of games verified for Proton. Once Valve gives a game any kind of rating, there doesn't seem to be any way to turn off Steam Play for it. Meanwhile it doesn't say Steam Linux Runtime is used for native games not rated by Valve. Maybe it makes no difference on Steam Deck, but if there's any difference between Steam Linux Runtime and no compatibility tool then I'd like to be able to make that choice for verified games.

        >how do you even tell if a game has a linux version or not and if you have it installed?
        When you select a game in the library, then somewhere under "game info" or whatever, it will say if a game is using Steam Play. Every game for Windows will say Proton there, unless you selected something else like Luxtorpeda for it. If it says Steam Linux Runtime in that spot, or if it says nothing, then you've got the native version of the game selected.
        >what even is steam linux runtime?
        Some kind of container thing, apparently. It's in the compatibility tools list alongside Proton, but unlike Proton, it's for native Linux games instead of Windows games.

        If a game has a Linux version but you've got the Windows version installed thanks to Valve saying it somehow works better (which may or may not be true since they don't tell us why they made that choice), it's not obvious that the Linux version exists at all, unless you go look at the store page. Even that won't tell you sometimes. Last time I checked, Overlord 1 and 2 still have native versions which are completely unadvertised. The store pages say Windows only, but I can run them natively on my Linux PC. Didn't try on Deck yet.

      >Is there any difference between playing a Linux game with Steam Linux Runtime and not using Steam Play at all?
      Steam Linux Runtime is for native ports and Steam Play is for Windows games running under Proton. Fundamentally they are the same shit, Proton is nothing but a script that makes a Windows game into a Linux port. In fact, so many old Linux ports are nothing but the Windows version running in WINE anyway. That, or the games were made for outdated libraries than what is contained in the Runtime libraries of Steam (e.g. many feral interactive ports). So since those games play like garbage on modern Linux machines, Steam may pick to run these games with Proton. Proton after all is a compatability tool, and one of the main uses of it is to support older games. There is really nothing special about a Linux native game versus a Proton Windows game other than it won't say "Exit to Windows?" when you close it

        Unfortunately there are cases of Valve choosing Proton for games whose Linux versions work perfectly well on my Linux PC, although I haven't had a chance to make sure they work perfectly on Deck as well. Maybe Valve had some legit reason for picking Proton for Shovel Knight, but they don't say why they did it, so how am I to know?

        There are also apparently some games which work natively outside of Steam Play but are broken by Steam Linux Runtime, e.g.
        >https://steamcommunity.com/app/1675200/discussions/1/3466100515582102818/
        which is why it's a problem that Steam Play can't be disabled for a game after Valve slaps a rating on it.

      Adjust deadzone.

      Sell it and go back to Switch

      Switch has no games and is basically worthless in 2022, what a terrible comment.

        Having more fun with Xenoblade 3 than with any other game released this year.

        So that the deck could stand up on a stand, the keyboard could be used to type on it, and the usb-c dock next to it could provide power and external storage.

        Isn't it obvious?

    Annoying question, but where do you guys get your Switch ROMs from?

    I want to emulate Switch KOTOR for the convenience of the controller support built-in

      Microsoft would never do this because they are hilariously incompetent hacks run by shareholders that only care about stupid easy money.

      Linux worked waaaaay better than I was expecting it to, so I honestly don't care about windows at all at this point. All the horror stories about linux being a huge pain with constant crashes and needing to use cryptic command lines in the terminal for everything hasn't been my experience with it at all.

      There are ways, but require installing WSL (linux shell) or some other app

    People fighting over the deck screen while I couldn't even find a 144hz screen with a good panel and good colors years ago when I bought my monitor. Sure, I'm >poor, so it's mostly about choosing either high performance or good colors where I live.
