Steam update adds library management options and Xbox controller configuration

Two weeks ago Valve released a beta update to the Steam client. They’ve added configuration support for Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, along with any generic controllers as well. That feature is now available to everyone!

PlayStation 4 controllers support has been added last month. From now on you can connect and use virtually any console gamepad with Steam.

“Note that because X-Input currently lacks per-controller means of unique identification, all controllers of that type will share personalization and configuration settings,” Valve says. “As they share the same inputs, Xbox 360/One/Generic controllers will all see each-others configurations when browsing. Automatic conversion will be attempted when loading configurations from other controller types.”

But that’s not all, they’ve also added rumble support for Xbox controllers and recognition of more third-party PS4 gamepads, such as: HORI, Madcatz, and Armor pads and flight sticks.

Beyond controller support, the latest Steam client fixes several issues, including one that could cause the client to hang when the computer wakes from sleep mode. Valve also added overlay support for new Windows 10 Insider preview builds and showed some love for Linux with updates and bug fixes.

Additionally if you right-click on a game in your library, you’ll also notice some menu changes. You can no longer “Delete local content” but “Uninstall.”

Another nice addition (and probably most important!) is the ability to move game install folders from the Properties > Local Files menu.

Windows 10 Game Mode coming later this week

The brand new Windows 10 Creators Update is just around the corner. It will have some special gaming features, and it’s nearly ready to roll-out.

There will be a new insider build (so it is not stable) in the upcoming week and it’s going to have the mysterious “Game Mode” on it! The improvement won’t be fully functional until later releases, but Microsoft has at last shed some light on what it is: it’ll fine-tune your PC to speed up gaming performance by disabling some background processes (in both Win 32 and UWP games).

Both PC and Xbox One will receive Xbox Live upgrades that help you connect to friends on social networks (is anyone even using that on the PC?), a more social-friendly Activity Feed, better tools for Clubs and looking-for-group posts, and the option to start your own Arena tournaments in games like Killer Instinct and World of Tanks.

Sounds nice and lets hope it won’t have much problems on the release day. Windows 10 Creators Update is coming out in March 2017.

Valve hit with $2.1 million USD fine by Australian courts

This has been on the net for a while now but due to holiday season I didn’t have much time to post this, anyway Valve lost its legal battle against Australia’s competition watchdog earlier this year. It’s all because of refunds.

An Australian court has ruled that Valve must pay $2.15 million USD fine following the loss of its legal battle against the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The fine is the maximum requested by the regulatory body, and according to the Sydney Morning Herald was imposed because of Valve’s disregard for Australian law when it set up shop in the country.

Valve’s refund policy has changed dramatically since the suit was filed—it now offers refunds on just about everything, “for any reason”—but that apparently didn’t impress the judge on the case.

Valve will be required from now on to post a notice on its Australian website, in size 14 type, informing consumers of their rights.

Prison for cheating in games? Yep! In South Korea.

South Korea has just started criminalizing the creation and distribution of aimbots, wall hacks, and anything else not allowed by a game’s terms of service. Anyone convicted of doing any of those things could face up to 5 years in prison or $43,000 in fines.

The law doesn’t target esports specifically, although that would seem to be its most obvious target. Game makers like Valve, Blizzard, and Riot will no doubt welcome the new law.

I really doubt this would get a private person in trouble. Cheaters are trolls mostly after all. And I don’t really think that terms of service of any game should be working like real life law…
