    We have heard that people have Aurora up and running on Steam Deck. Can anyone confirm or provide a "how to" guide?

    BTW, having played ours now, I can see what all the hype is about. It's an amazing machine. We will definitely do our best to support it. I already have 3 of them.

    I honestly can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. You've bad mouthed the Steam Deck in every other post and now you own 3 and are praising it?

    I know people are running trainers/tables on the Steam Deck with Windows without any issues but that's to be expected. There is an very well known program similar to Cosmos that does appear to be working within the Steam OS. I don't use Linux but it's a matter of the trainer/table being launched in the same Wine prefix as the game so you would need Wine on the Deck.

    I haven't seen anyone mentioning running Aurora. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't run with Windows and I'm assuming it could be made to run with the Steam OS as long as it followed the above Wine prefix requirement but how that works is beyond my expertise.

    I'm not being sarcastic and have not bad mouthed the thing at all. I merely stated our experience with other Valve products such as the doomed Steam Link that we ran out and bought 4 of (out of probably 5 sold nationwide). Now that I have the device I can attest to the legitimacy of the hype this time around. It's a nice device and definitely has plenty of potential. We have made Linux trainers before that no one cared about or used and so we also went off of those stats with my previous comments regarding Valve products. We will do our best to hack this new Steam Deck that very few people actually have at this point and make CoSMOS and Aurora (with CoSMOS already built into it) run and also hack into another running game on the OS, which will likely be the largest challenge. We will know more next week when our programmers get ahold of the gadget and start poking around with it. Also, please note that we are NOT in any kind of race or competition with other cheat/trainers sites on who can make theirs work first, etc. If they do then they likely have a lot more time on their hands than we do. Our core business remains making PC trainers and improving Aurora/CoSMOS for our Windows user base and we will not let this device become a distraction from that.

    My mistake I assumed these were negative remarks. I read the hardware specs, preordered one and followed it's development/modding post launch but thought I made a horrible mistake after seeing your comments below....I'm very relieved that appears to not be the case.

    "We have no idea what the OS will look like, if anyone is even going to buy the silly thing (Steam Link, anyone? anyone?)"

    "Ever tried playing an RTS game like Total War on a handheld device? Um yeh, not happening"

    "you can forget running any kind of elaborate PC game on it"

    "Don't let pre-order numbers and hype fool you. Any big company can make any upcoming product seem like the best thing since sliced bread

    "we are now the proud owners of one Steam Deck which is literally the size of my TV and weighs almost as much"
