By - | Views: 28,173

It's time again to upgrade your install of the Heroic Games Launcher which helps you install games from Epic, GOG, Amazon and more on Steam Deck and desktop Linux.

They've just released version 2.9.2 HOTFIX #2, which deals with a few bugs that came up after the last major update as well as a few minor feature additions.

Here's the full list of what's changed:


  • Fixed three-dot menu closing when hovering certain items
  • Fixed installation of EOS Overlay
  • Fixed alignment of current download component when sidebar is collapsed
  • Fixed issues with missing games metadata for GOG
  • Fixed some issues for Amazon Games
  • Fixed issue with egl-sync
  • Fixed remembering if window is maximized
  • Fixed installing all DLCs not adding them to the queue
  • Make sure the game is available before auto-updating
  • Await for GOG uninstaller to finish before updating the state


  • Added a new System Information Tab to the Heroic Settings
  • Added support for installing and enabling DXVK-NVAPI
  • Added user feedback when copying log to clipboard
  • Added ExperimentalFeatures feature setting support

The team at Heroic are currently working on a big overhaul to their GOG support at the moment as well, which will include Cyberpunk 2077 exclusive REDmod integration, improved Native Linux downloads, the ability to add/remove DLCs at any time and more that can be followed here.

I'm still hoping that one day HGL will add itch.io support, cause then you'd basically only need two launchers on windows, steam and HGL.

On linux it would be three launchers, since HGL doesn't really have a WINE prefix management settings interface for games that don't come from any of these sources (for abandonware games and such) as in depth as Bottles or Lutris unfortunately. But still, it's closer to perfecting a secondary launcher than anything else I know, since Lutris still has trouble downloading amazon games and HGL doesn't.
