Need to see who’s chatting in Discord on a Steam Deck or Linux desktop, whilst you’re gaming or doing different issues? Let me introduce you to the Uncover Overlay.
Supplying you with fairly a number of choices to tweak the fashion to your liking, you may show the avatar of individuals in your presently linked voice-chat, and textual content channels as nicely. It is actually helpful and makes all of it extremely straightforward to do. To present it a take a look at and a quick information as a result of it actually is easy to get going, take a look at this video under:
Full Steam Deck directions on the official website. Word: it does not work along with the efficiency overlay.
There’s enjoyable little story behind a number of the work concerned right here although, because it seems one of many builders of the Uncover Overlay is partly accountable for having the efficiency overlay on Steam Deck being a factor. I requested them about it, this is what they mentioned:
As for our work concentrating on the Steam Deck… We realised fairly early after it was introduced that we’d 100% like to focus on it, it was only a query of how. After it grew to become obvious that the deck would use Gamescope because it’s compositor, trigg began trying into the feasibility of overlays with gamescope. In October he submitted a PR which laid the groundwork for getting exterior overlays operating on the deck. This was later used as the inspiration to get MangoApp operating on the Deck – https://github.com/Plagman/gamescope/pull/363
We have been fairly hyped about getting code into gamescope! After the official launch of the Deck we realised that we did not even have any approach of testing whether or not our overlay really runs on the Steam Deck or not. Fortunately we managed to pay money for one simply over per week in the past and work has been continuous since then to get the overlay operating completely, get the app within the Uncover retailer & get a touchdown web page setup for customers to simply set up the challenge!
