    I'm really thinking about starting BOTW fresh - never did complete it on the Switch.


    I own both the game itself and a Switch and a Steam Deck - just wondering, for those also with both who might know - would playing it on Steam Deck be the better experience? Or best to just stick with the original at 30fps?


    I read that the Steam Deck runs it very well at 40fps which is sooo tempting but equally I'm worried that it might break stuff and I'll be 40+ hours in to a game before finding out or something.


    Anyone tried both and can say one way or the other?


    Thanks a lot!

    I think, IIRC, it's the WiiU version that runs well on the deck.

    There’s also certain bioses you need, to use the scrapers you need to sign up to some weird website, the file explorer in batocera seems to not see certain files. It’s definitely a beta piece of software at the moment. 



    What devices is that for?  So far, SNES, GBA and PSP have just been a case of copying over the roms. 


    For me anyways, it has just been, burn to SD and boot (and copy ROMS)

    How do I find where third party apps are stored on the internal storage? I was updating emudeck and having a right nightmare with it. I accidentally chose internal storage when first updating it and I now have no idea where the bloody hell it was installed or how to remove it? Cheers

    Probably doesn't help your situation - however, emudeck, as I understand it, spreads itself over lots of places in your SteamOS.  That's why I preferred Batocera as it can live, by itself on a micro-sd seperate to SteamOS.

    Apparently you don’t need one according to some people in this thread. They’ve never used one on their phones or any of their consoles and it’s never been an issue!

    I bought these. It installed fine and you wouldn’t know it’s on there. Also have a spare: https://amzn.eu/d/3iD6MFh

    Any glass ones would be fine though I suspect.





    Indeed!  And I stand by it!  Literally never had an issue.  Don't let your kids use your stuff for starters.

    I installed windows yesterday on a new SD card and it seems to work ok. Found it a bit fiddly to swap OS, but I think I'd been holding the power button down instead of a press which sorta didn't work.. Really easy to install though using these instructions: https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/install-windows-steam-deck

    As soon as you hear the beep, let go of the buttons

    Noob question but with all the talk of random scripts influencing folder structure, can I put all my legal backup retro roms on the SD card when I use emudeck?


    I heard Batocera is great but doesn't perform as well as emudeck because it's still pretty much in beta?


    I've "heard" that anything upto and including WiiU is good on Batocera - even in the Beta image.

    If you don't want random scripts to fuck with things, you can use Retrodeck. It'll just install and configure things that are already in the discovery store.


    If you don't mind random scripts fucking with things, you can use Emudeck.


    If you want your emulation stuff to be on another SD card entirely with its own operating system, you can use Batocera.

    If you want everything kept seperate - Batorcera is the way to go, I think.  Installs to a micro-sd card - and boots from the micro sd.  Everything is kept and done on there.  No fucking with your system.

    Every still saying 'we will let you know when its out for delivery' which has been over a week now. 


    Steam ticket logged 2 days ago with a follow up nudge today. No response at all in the ticket. 


    I have not tried to contact Evri via the CEO address as suggested as I was trying the official Steam Path first. I was hoping Steam will chase GLS who will kick Evri but I suspect at some point they will just say its lost. Its really poor. 


    Get the credit card company involved?

    Yeah so I have been waiting a couple of weeks now -- Evri told me it was out for delivery last Saturday, then last Sunday, then their tracking said a delay, and nothing has shifted since then.


    There are two ways people say you can speak to a real person -- one is to phone a number they don't publish, claim you're sending a parcel, give them a known good tracking number (I saw one on reddit), then when you get a person say 'Not really, I want to talk about this other parcel'.


    Or - what I did - send an email to their CEO. Within 24 hours I got a call from someone on the team who has insisted it'll be investigated and he'll update me by Friday. I'd rather know if it was lost (or stolen) so at least I can get Valve shipping a new one out!


    How much of this is on Valve to solve?  If it were anything else, I'd be ringing up the company I bought an item from.
