Quoting: BeamboomI wonder what their use case is for 15fps, that made it this high on the priority list...!

If I had to hazard a guess, it would be for non-realtime games, and maybe for games which do not rely on fluidity of motion. RTS, turn-based RPG's, jewel or puzzle games, card games etcetera.

The game is better played once bound to joypad using the settings menu. Should be fun to play on Deck.

Quoting: jordicomaUnsupported? This has more sense than on spanish "No compatibles" (no compatible), as many of these games works on my linux, even some are native.

"Unsupported" does not mean "does not work."

They're literally saying it means "currently don't function on Steam Deck", on the page Liam linked.

Sorry. I stand corrected.

BL2's situation is embarrassing to be frank. The port from Asprey runs really well but basically it's abandoned from the looks of it. Whether thats due to Gearbox or whomever I don't know. Could be the deal/license has run out as in the case with some of feral's ports.

BL2 default must be native. Because installing it with proton will install the HD texture pack which will cause out of memory crashes. You need to manually untick that DLC for it to be stable(ish). Default experience has fewer issues although proton can run double the fps.

I forced LAA, completed the DLC multiple times.

I personally love Splitgate, especially with friends dominating in Club Silo (Swordbase for Halo Reach Players).

Quoting: ArehandoroIf I was Sony, or Nintendo for that matter, I'd release their exclusives a few years later on PC. And by PC I mean Linux. Punch your opponent (Microsoft) where it hurts the most.

Hit them in the wallet!
