Sorce's Backlog: The Next Time Around

Speaking of playing on mobile, I tried to see if I could get my Steam Controller (remember those?) to work with my phone for gaming. It basically recognizes it as a mouse so alas, I cannot game with it. On the upside I got to see a cursor float around on my phone screen, so that's neat.

The surprise though, was that I could even do it at all. Because as far as I knew, the SC wasn't Bluetooth compatible; it had a little dongle it could connect to and that as it. Well, it has BT connectivity now (well, for the last couple years) which meant that I don't need the dongle on my PC. What this also meant is that I could try and see if I could get it to be recognized by Forza Horizon 4.

It was not. Kinda.

I could use it to navigate menus and whatnot, but not drive any of the vehicles. So I checked the settings on the game, with no dice. I checked the settings in Steam for the controller, which also didn't work. Then I turned to Google, and it pointed me at this. Which then enabled me to not only use the controller, but to add the game to Steam itself (UWP programs don't have .exe files). I could even use the overlay if I ran in windowed borderless mode (I never use windowed borderless mode).

So now I could play Forza Horizon 4 in Steam with my Steam Controller. Neat! But wait, I have a Steam Link app on my TV in the living room. Could I...? Fuck yeah I can. I can also play on mobile, provided I'm still on my home network. But I have no need to play on mobile when I'm at home.

Looks like if I want to play on the go, I need a different controller. Ah well.
