New Steam Desktop and Steam Deck Beta includes various controller fixes

By - | Views: 28,628

Another fresh Beta update is now available for Steam Deck and Steam Desktop, pulling in some good sounding fixes for various controllers. According to both changelogs, it's the same across both since they're now sharing most things since the new Big Picture Mode has been moved over to desktop (although they're still cleaning all the Steam Deck specific bits from it).

New Big Picture - Fedora Linux

Here's what's changed across both Steam Deck and Desktop Steam:

General

  • Fixes for quotes surrounding shortcut exe and paths
  • Made it easier to accept a game invite from the Quick Access menu. Selecting the invite will now prompt you to accept the invite, versus bringing you to the chat previously.
  • Added ability to retrieve Steam Runtime System Information
  • Improved UI responsiveness when reconnecting to Steam

Local Network Transfer

  • Fixed resuming a local network transfer of a game with next download in case it was manually stopped previously

Steam Input

  • Fixed crash exiting deadzone visualization

  • Fixed the physical input visualization only looking at the first connected controller
  • Fixed rumble for Nintendo Joy-Con controllers
  • Added support for the Razer Wolverine V2 controllers
  • Added the ability to reset the device input mapping in new Big Picture
  • Added the ability to install and uninstall the Windows Xbox Enhanced Features driver to the new Big Picture controller settings
  • Updated the Xbox Enhanced Features driver with the following changes:
    - Added support for Xbox Series X controllers connected via the Xbox Wireless Adapter
    - Fixed delay detecting hotplugged USB controllers, occasionally causing duplicate controllers in Steam
    - Fixed interference with the Victrix Control Hub after the steamxbox driver has been uninstalled

Remote Play

  • Added "Turn Off Steam Link" to the power menu

Changelogs: Desktop, Steam Deck.

How this new Xbox Enhanced Features driver compares to xone?

Does this mean that the Steam Deck now has native support for the Xbox wireless adapter? Or is it just code shared between the Windows and Linux Steam client that only works on Windows? I've been looking for an answer on this question and haven't been able to find an answer yet.

I am still sticking to the old Big Picture :P But I believe there will be a day when I decide to make the switch
