A new Steam Deck Client updater was released today that brings in a bunch of different bug fixes, as well as some gyro improvements. There were a couple of layout regressions that were fixed for EULA dialogs and the quick access menu, the UI of the gyro calibration readings was fixed, and the device will no longer be randomly recognized as a previously authorized device for Family Sharing.

As for the Steam Input fixes, horizontal haptics are back in all the new "Gyro To" modes, gyro has been improved for Joystick Deflection mode, and there are no longer any occasional "jerks" in the new conversion modes that use gravity axis. Overall, this is a solid update that fixes up some of the lingering issues that have been coming with these new updates.

  • Fixed the new controller support panel showing on tools/applications.

  • Add the buttons back to the game launch interstitials rather than relying on the footer buttons.
