Forspoken gets an update to improve Steam Deck performance

By - | Views: 25,597

Forspoken has been controversial for quite a lot of a reasons but also a title many were looking forward to. The release was a bit rough but the developers are cleaning it up now and it has some Steam Deck fixes.

Here's the patch notes:

  • Adjustments have been made to HDR mode.
  • Localization and spelling fixes.
  • Various minor fixes.
  • Certain technical issues occurring on Steam Deck has been fixed.
  • Performance and stability has been improved on Steam Deck.  

Amazing to see games from publishers like Square Enix pay attention to a Linux gaming device, we're going to see a lot more of this over the next year. Although, it would be great if developers did these things before release, especially with the roll-out of the Steam Deck in Asia going strong, there's going to be a lot more people using it now.

I still personally think £64.99 is a crazy price for it, so I won't be going into any depth on it myself. It currently has a Mixed user rating on Steam from over 2,000 people and the peak player count dropped pretty harshly quickly after release so it's not exactly popular.

They did update the demo too, so for those of you who wish to try it out that might give you a good idea now.

Quoting: slaapliedjeHaha! Hell yeah! Granted I have enough real hardware these days that I don't really need to emulate.
It's gone the other way for me - I stuck with real hardware for a reeeeeeeally long time (even had a JAMMA cabinet that took up far too much space!), but it does take up an awful lot of room, unfortunately, and at this point I like to keep everything in one place so shifting over to emulation has worked out well. Good times, though!

Ooh, I do love new games for old hardware - always nice to see! (Quick shout-out to Bomberland for the C64, here, because it's really good. )

Quoting: slaapliedjeThere was some talk about this for Launchbox (emulator front end) to be ported to Linux, and the developers have mostly said that the Linux development tools just aren't as good... though I tend to think it is more like 'it isn't as good for the language that we chose to write things in', as development tools under Linux have always seemed superior to me over Windows.

I believe the issue with Launchbox is it's written in .Net and specifically WPF. WPF in particular is very much windows only. Dotnet GUI applications are pretty much garbage on Linux, you can do it, but you have to develop and plan for it from the start, and each major Dotnet version changes what that means entirely.

There are plenty of good ways to develop cross platform things with GUIs, but not really if you're a .Net WPF developer.

Quoting: slaapliedjeThis game is one of those that makes me wonder "why don't people just emulate older computers and play the ton of games that came out 10-20 years ago instead of playing this shiny jaunt through shaders and lighting effects?" :P

I hope they manage to finish it! (Note: Ultima V had a prototype for the Atari 8bit computers, but was never finished by Origin, as they had decided the computer was falling away in popularity. Granted somehow the C64 got Ultima 6, but the Apple II only got 1-5).

Now that is cool. Not my genre, but my other half is a fan, so I'll have to pass the link along. Thanks very much!
