    does epic games support linux? would the games even run on it? chances are if you can get them to run on linux/steam deck then it would be the same way to use it on a steam game

    Yes, Epic games run on Steam Deck.

    Does this work for Epic games on Steam Deck? If so, is there a how-to?

    Assuming you're using Lutris or Heroic Games Launcher, you should be able to run the Aurora executable in the same prefix the game runs in, which is essentially the same as what's done here with the fork custom command.

    As for the WineD3D toggle to get hardware acceleration turned off, not sure it can be changed directly through either launcher but should be doable manually through the config files for the game's prefix.

    I'll probably screw around with trying to get it to run with Heroic over the weekend and I can post with any findings I might have.

    And for anyone who may find it helpful, some general Steam Tinker Launch advice. In the game menu shown in the video, just above the custom command bit, one of the first options can increase the timeout for the STL window that pops up when you launch the game, can make it much easier to get to the main STL menu if you're slow like I am.

    Confirmed working with Heroic Games Launcher. Process is very straightforward.

    1.) Click the gear button on the specific game you want to run with Aurora to be brought to the game's settings, and then on the left in the Other tab is a section for environment variables.

    2.) Set the environment variable PROTON_USE_WINED3D with a value of 1 to allow Aurora to function.

    3.) Launch game through HGL.

    4.) To run Aurora, click the gear button on the specific game and at the bottom of the Wine tab is a button to "Run EXE on Prefix". Click this and select the Aurora executable.

    5.) Login, disable hardware acceleration and the process watcher in Aurora settings.

    Afterwards, close both the game and Aurora and then remove that environment variable, and you should be good to go.

    It may be possible to launch Aurora automatically on game launch through some other config, but I don't know how that would be done myself, so until then, running Aurora is something you'll have to do manually each time you launch the game.

    I'd also like to mention this was all done in desktop mode, I know it's possible to add HGL games to Steam to launch in game mode but I don't run them that way and don't know how this configuration might be done for game mode.

    Enabling developer mode in the steam deck settings solved my issues with not being able to switch windows in the decks console mode using the steam key.

    I followed the video tutorial on how to install on my steam deck, But when i try to launch a game an error shows up (Cannot mount AppImage, please check your FUSE setup.) Then the game closes.
    Can i get some help?

    Is there a way to use an offline key with this method?
    Sometimes I have no internet connection and I'd still like to use trainers.

    Thanks!
