Recently, the awesome script to install third-party launchers, NonSteamLaunchers, added a way to scan for third-party games and add them individually to Steam on the Steam Deck. This is awesome and allows you to have individual settings for different games if desired. The service launched with Epic Games support, giving us the ability to utilize all those wonderful free games, but unfortunately, that was the only launcher supported. Now, there have been a couple of new updates, bringing scanning support for other launchers!


After the updates, the game scanner feature now scans your EA App, GOG Galaxy, Battle.Net, and Amazon Games launcher to add games separately to Steam. Combined with the support for Epic Games and Ubisoft Connect, a majority of the biggest launchers are now supported! The support for Battle.Net is a little wonky, however, so there may be some fixes coming to this in the future!

Overall, this is awesome to see, especially when the NonSteamLaunchers script is so useful! The script allows you to download most third-party launchers, downloads the newest Proton GE, installs them, and then adds them to Steam so you can access them in-game mode! It is nifty, and you can learn how to use it from our guide!
