MangoHud performance overlay gets a few needed fixes in v0.6.9-1

By - | Views: 19,934

After the previous release of v0.6.9, MangoHud has another nice update out that fixes up a few lingering problems for the Linux performance hud that's also used on Steam Deck for the built-in performance info.

Here's the changes in v0.6.9-1:

  • Fixed issue that applied picmip without option being set.
  • Reverted x11 poller that was causing segfaults 06edee4.
  • Fixed issues with horizontal and legacy_layout.
  • Fixed amdgpu APU power and temperature reading.
  • Fixed certain hud elements displaying incorrectly in horizontal.
  • Fixed an issue causing segfault when using MANGOHUD_CONFIG.

The issue with some elements not being in the right place with the horizontal layout was a little annoying, which I reported, so I'm really glad to see such a quick fix there so we can cram in more details. Here's a fresh example on the latest version on Fedora KDE with Everspace 2:

If you're interested in this layout you can use this below, place it into your MangoHud configuration file. The main one can be found in: ~/.config/MangoHud/MangoHud.conf

Horizontal "position" "center" options still don't work unfortunately.
Thanks for the template, been wanting a horizontal bar for mangohud, but wasn't sure how to do it.

Thank you Liam for posting your template! If this works on Steam Deck, you should post this to the subreddit as people ask all the time how to customize their overlay hud.
