Steam Deck Client Beta fixes up New Big Picture Mode overlay sizing

By - | Views: 17,074

More quick fixes from Valve for the Steam Deck this weekend, with a small bug fix release out for the Steam Deck Client Beta.

Here's what's changed:

General

  • Fixed the new Big Picture Mode overlay being incorrect sized when the monitor is set to display scaling other than 100%
  • Fixed DLC hover on game details page being cropped

Steam Input

  • Fixed an issue with gamepad navigation in the Steam Deck haptics calibration screen
  • Fixed an issue w/ enabling Gyro for Switch controllers

It's available in both the Beta and Preview update channels. You can opt into this in Settings > System > Steam Update Channel.

Seems Valve also did the same update for the desktop Steam client too.

Also if you didn't see on the GamingOnLinux YouTube, I recently took a look at Marvel's Midnight Suns. Overall it's pretty good but I'm looking forward to some performance optimizations and hopefully a fix for some of the crashes people have been seeing.

On top of that I gave The Callisto Protocol a fresh set of benchmarks after the first patch. The second patch didn't change this for Proton / Steam Deck, so I'm waiting for more patches to see if it improves it at all again. Right now it's still really rough on performance no matter what settings you use on Steam Deck.

They need to fix the monumentally broken virtual keyboard on the Steam Deck's desktop mode. Every time I'm done typing and close the keyboard there's a 50/50 chance the Deck will completely crash going to a black screen, and I have to hard reset.
