I miss pc gaming (been a few years) but I don't miss the cost of always upgrading. Cirrent rig is going on six years old and it's time... This actually seems promising.

We'll see. I don't have much time for gaming. I got a PS5, gaming PC and gaming laptop. I just like new tech. *shrug*

Not sure if it should/can be discussed in open forum, but it has been so long since I've set up an emulation device for games, would it be possible for someone to PM me w/ more information? I'd like to also make my Steam deck emulate classic games.

Thanks!

I've been thinking if I should get one of these. Nice to read that the speed improvements aren't that extreme, that makes it easier to decide to go for the cheaper model lol

Those reseller prices tho...

Exactly my situation. I have a PS5, series X, gaming laptop, PC, Switch, and now incoming Deck. Like I'm all about the gadgets but I honestly see myself returning this thing or selling to someone here pretty soon, I can't even really think of what I'd play on it that the switch can't do.

I was like oh crap Nier Automata but now Switch too...

But ya I'm thinking of using it to emulate like Windwaker and Twilight princess HD and maybe a few other things, like Windows 11.

I've also seen it run Metroid Dread at 60 FPS which is cool

I'm really digging the deck. I only play hand held; switch and analogue pocket. Don't own any tethered consoles. So the deck has really expanded my gaming options. Been playing NBA 2k13, GTAV, checked out Hitman and played a few rounds of geometry wars.

sell the pocket lol, wyd, you have the Pocket Ultra, do you really need them subpixels boy

Technically you load up Yuzu, you don't even need the Switch (usually, some weird exceptions like Fire Emblem Warriors 1 but like, I bet the Deck can run Hyrule Warriors DE at 60), all those Switch indie titles you've been paying $40-189 for have been like $3-12 on Steam the whole time anyways

Mine has arrived. Initially, I'm impressed. I feel like the screen is bigger than the Switch Lite. The D pad location bothers me a bit but not a dealbreaker.
I'm loading up Stray to see how it plays.

I still have this and Analogue Pocket pre-ordered. I opted for this over the OLED Switch since I have regular launch Switch (with hackable firmware).

Depending on how things go I may keep all 3 and play different things on each or just consolidate into one device (most likely the steam deck).

Edit to add context, I collect games and have large libraries of physical games.

Yeah a case is probably not a bad idea. Though as big as this thing is, it doesn't feel as fragile as the Playstation Vita or anything. Still enjoying mine. Surprised to see that 90 degrees Celsius is the typical and safe running temperature (190F) but Valve says as it gets closer to 100C it may get bogged down. I am glad they put the air flow out the top of it because it is like a heater. This way you don't notice it at all.

Is there a good guide for setting up emulation? I don't really want to destroy the OS I'm using or make things weird. I'm honestly not even sure what I'd want to emulate. I'm having a blast playing my Steam titles without being glued to a PC/laptop.

Yuzu is not 100% yet. I mean it's still playable but if you care about visual quality, it's not great for many games right now.

I think the older games run much better.

Live A Live for example, has graphical glitches.

Xenoblade 1's text is too hard to read.

I dunno guys. This is everything the Vita should have been. You can literally almost play everything on it and extremely well. I wish the battery life was better but can't be helped due to the amount of power needed. The trade off for being comfortable to hold was a good choice. I'm probably going to hang onto mine. The heat makes me uneasy for longevity. I've seen some people opening theirs and adding new heat compound and it improving by 10 or so degrees, but not sure if I want to try it or not yet. Maybe if I consistently hit 100C.

I'm slowly getting through Stray as life allows. I'm looking forward to one day replaying Uncharted on it. Supposedly Ghost of Tsushima is coming to PC in the next 2 years and that'd be a good opportunity for me to replay it all since my child basically ruined the experience of it for me on my PS5 by deleting my nearly 100% save. (I'm password protected now, but still just can't go back to it on that platform.)

I agree it's pretty amazing. I wasn't set on keeping mine either. For me it scratches an itch I have (regarding handheld) had for so long... access to top tier quality gaming. The fact that it can, as you mentioned, play games with very little performance or graphical sacrifice it simply amazing.

I might be cancelling mine. Just because, I want them to impliment a more streamlined easier gog inclusion. If they never do, eh. I do already have a micro PC so I can already play most of my gog games (cept a handheld controller would be better for shooters). I think just one of these small windows PCs that are handheld are a better option for me.

It's not like I'm going to play more demanding games on it. I play those on Series X and PS5.

I've been playing on the deck exclusively since I received it. Put the switch away... for now. There's just so many games that I've wanted to check out over the years that I didn't have access to being I game 100% hand held.

Has anyone tried remote play using Chiaki to PS5? If so, thoughts?

Edit: I just finished setting up Xbox cloud gaming beta. Played about 10 min of halo 4 just to get an idea of we'll it works. Ran flawlessly for those 10 mins.

I don't know what it is but Xbox Cloud Gaming Beta seems to work flawlessly on my Razer phone, but when I use it on the Xbox One w/ wired connection, it's crapty...

I haven't tried the Steam Deck yet for that... Mostly because I'm trying to get caught up on my studying for certification exams.

Tried to set up psnow. I can get it to launch and land on the Home Screen but the controls are not working. Read some forums, watched some videos then ultimately uninstalled it. I'd consider getting a ps5 to do remote play. I'll have to research that a bit more before making a commitment.

I can top that. My friend's deck got expected delivery today (good news), fedex shows delivery completed but there's no package on the porch, worst yet someone they don't know signed for it (bad news). Luckily after an hour's worth of calling fedex and visiting them in-person it turns out the driver left the package at the local post office in an effort to curb porch pirating. Sure would've been nice if they told my friend this

Ah yes. Alternative Delivery Locations. UPS Started this because there is a huge problem with porch thefts and you have no control or say in it typically. Ultimately the driver is responsible in a lot of cases where he leaves a package where the area has been flagged problematic. Fedex sounds like they're figuring out how to do this too but not very good.

UPS has a package management system that alerts people typically via email/text/tracking when this happens, plus a notice is left on a door.

You have to add a non steam game and use origin. Then confit it and launch origin. Go under the game and set under launch options to -skipvideos. That should help but will skip cut scenes that origin uses for drm

my 512 steam deck pre-order is up. But having second thoughts, likely won't get it. Partly due to the fact I already have a micro PC for older PC games, an emulator handheld for roms, and a PS5 and Series X. The steam deck would split up what I already have to run what I want. And I got 2 kittens and have already spent well over $1000 on them, toys, food, litter, and vet visits.

So if you want to piggyback me for this steam deck let me know. As long as it's someone I've done business with before, and feel comfortable doing it for, I'm up for it. Otherwise my window expires on aug 7th. So all day the 6th it's still on.

I decided to give it a try. So what are a few of my options for front end / game launchers instead of steam OS? Because I want to have steam games, GOG games, and Retroarch emulators, all on the same front end. I want the box pics to be accurate for emulated games, not a title art like Lunar showed a ways back.

I am still thinking of selling mine, if I do and you want it it's a 256GB unit, with a 512GB Kingston card 100mbps. I'd sell it all at cost.

Has anyone had any luck running Saturn through EMU Deck/Emulation Station? I like their front end and just being able to select whichever game I want.

Or is only going through Retroarch possible? (Ive had to select core and then find the game file) Kind of a pain.

The beauty of EmuDeck through the Steam Rom Manager is that, these tiles basically boot up the correct emulator and the correct settings without going through the RetroArch/standalone emulator menus.

And yes, I've tested many Saturn games (MKR, Dragon Force, SF3, Albert Odyssey), all ran fine.

I think I have way too many games downloaded. When I run steam rom manager it goes super slow to the point where I stop it because it's going to take forever to run through all the list. Is there a way to speed it up? It seems like it stops too after it goes through 1000 or so
