    Good thing this isn’t perfect

    So in the last year I have found myself hopelessly addicted to a little pc game called Kenshi, it quickly surpassed all other titles in total play hours. I came across the steam link app and thought “why not let this game run my life completely, even when I can’t be around my laptop? I surely have nothing better to do.” So I set out to get this working. For those who don’t know Kenshi is a game you can essentially play on pause so perfectly suited to this very high latency format. It was about two days of being impressed by how nicely their editor lets you set up a control scheme, triple checking that I had saved it in every way I could think, and finding my setup gone on returning to the app before… Some glorious serendipity of overlapping bugs allowed me to recall my settings! I was off! Also thrilled to find that it is workable even streaming across town over cell. In fact performance seems inconsistent no mater what network setup I've tried, even with a cable in the computer sitting next to the router. However, it has always worked well enough to get my fix in various levels of blurriness. Unfortunately the app also crashes when taken out of focus and sometimes randomly. But still, pretty wild the ways we can waste our time these days, this must be meta. .? Keep trying valve, you are somewhat appreciated. Ken heads check my layout, I think it’s the only one

    Lacks Native Support/ Touch Screen

    For me the only controllers I own are some Xbox controllers. The problem is the lack of support for touch screen. I used to play a lot of touch screen games when I was younger. Now that I’m older; I’m fine playing them casually in another room. However, when trying to play games I found myself having no easy native controls. With me having to mingle with each game. This app works perfectly. If you have good internet and a good computer. The result is very visually appeasing with close to no lag. To me steam should have built some more features. Like remote using of the PC. Like being able to use mouse and keyboard mode on the computer with steam minimized. You are able to do this as I clicked out of the game and had remote access of the PC. Additionally PC remote controls like turn on from sleep or turn off. I’m aware that other programs have these capabilities; Integration of these services with steam link would be a very impressive way to get people using the app. Overall very satisfied. Would recommend to a friend. -Zack Felcyn

    amazing but just needs 2 things

    Steam link is just absolutely great and i love it so much!! im able to play The Forest and Friday The 13th and its just so amazing but theres just one problem. i am unable to shift/Run when i play with my buttons on screen so it would be great if there was a button or maybe having to double tap and hold the joystick and is it possible for us to be able to play with our laptop offline and maybe being really really really far apart from our laptop because something like that would be really helpful when trying to play from another location on your phone instead of having to play while your at home 🏡 and okay now this will be the last thing i promise haha but um is there any possible way that the buttons on the controller can be customized in their size because if i have a small phone i wanna make sure i can see a lot of the screen and sometimes some buttons just cover most of the screen so if you guys could cover these things it would be amazing. Thank you so much for your time and you guys are doing amazing so keep at it

    Usually works well, needs some additional features

    I have been using this to play a number of PC games on my iPhone. In general it works very well, occasionally requiring a reset that usually fixes things. My biggest issue with it is that there are a few commands hard coded into the app that sometimes conflict with certain games. Most notably, holding down the Y button on the controller brings up the session manager overlay. However some games require you to hold down Y for various things, and the app makes that input Impossible. Sea of thieves is a good example, where you have to hold down Y to interact with lots of things, but doing so is impossible while playing through this app. This function should be remappable, or at least moved to hold down start or something less commonly used in games.

    Terrible most of the time.

    So I only have one game right now that I care about and maybe the issue is just compatibility with that particular game but my experience has been awful. The game is Steins;Gate 0. When I start the majority of the time it will get stuck on “connecting”. Except it isn’t really. There is a pop up that appears on the PC. So I have to go over there and click the button with my mouse. Now the game will start on the iPad. But... half the time now the audio is on the PC and not on the iPad. And half the time the Steam controller stops working a few seconds in. If the game is full screen the it runs 10x faster than it should making it unplayable but only when using this app. If it isn’t full screen then half the time the streaming misses just slightly so I see part of the desktop and part of the game. There are other issues but I’m running out of space. But when it works it works great, just requires around 5 tries and 10 minutes to get there.
