Steam Deck Client Beta Adds Spoiler Alert for Hidden Achievements, Fixes Screenshots for Non-Steam Games
During the week of June 19th there were four beta client updates and one stable update. Three of the beta updates made it into the stable update on Wednesday.
DualSense gamepads should now work properly when hotplugged. Three fixes for Desktop Mode, and in-game overlay data can now be cleared in the game’s Properties menu.
Overlay UI no longer soft-locks when inviting a friend to a game. Sharing screenshots should now function properly. Desktop Mode gets half-a-dozen bug fixes, and gyro calibration now uses a time window to calibrate rather than a fixed number of samples.
Main menu and QAM should now render properly after entering a PIN at the lock screen. “Minimum Rumble Sustain” has been reverted from 3 seconds back to 10. Gyro/accelerometer support has been added to more third-party Switch gamepads.
Later that day, all of these changes were baked into the stable update.
Screenshots for the proper non-Steam game should now be shown. The client window opening at login or when started with
-silent flag for certain startup locations is now fixed. On Windows, non-Steam games should now be able to be properly added. Finally, a spoiler alert is now shown before viewing hidden achievements.
