Another Steam Client Beta update went live yesterday, as Valve continue to polish up the experience.
It's quite a small one this time. What's changed:
- Added the ability to blacklist individual DirectInput and Xinput devices in the controller settings menu. This is intended to be used when a device either erroneously shows up as two devices or shows up as a controller but isn’t one.
Steam Networking Sockets
- Fixed issues with P2P connections sending too many keepalives on an idle connection
- Improve support for Steam Library on NTFS mounts
I've actually seen quite a few people complain about certain games showing a single gamepad as two devices, so hopefully this will help those specific cases. The Linux improvement for NTFS mounts is also an interesting one, hopefully those dual booting or switching over to Linux might see a better experience if they're not going to reformat drives and partitions.
Hopefully sometime soon a Steam Client Beta will drop with the new Steam Library overhaul. I'm actually really looking forward to it, as it looks so much cleaner and more useful.
