Launch Ubisoft Connect Games directly from Steam
CJLX 26 Jul
Looking for a little tech support. I've followed the guide from the article here: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/03/ubisoft-connect-on-steam-deck-guide-with-sd-card-access/page=1/#comments.

All looks good so far but after installing Prince of Persia through the Ubi app I'm trying to launch it directly from Steam using the info in articles pinned comment "UPDATE: thanks to a comment, you can get Ubisoft Connect to auto-launch a specific game by adding uplay://launch/*gameID*/0 to the end of your Steam launch options for the app (ID list here) which gets around the flashing issue but only works for a specific game at a time."

My steam launch options are as follows: "STEAM_COMPAT_MOUNTS=/run/media/mmcblk0p1/ %command% uplay://launch/111/0"

The game appears to launch but ubi connect is just stuck on "initializing". Has anybody had any better luck with this and am I doing something wrong?
