Introducing the CH Aurora SteamDeck Tool
Cheat Happens is proud to announce the release of our latest custom-made software, the Aurora SteamDeck Tool
. This is a NATIVE Linux/SteamOS launcher that is specifically designed to make AURORA ten times easier to install and use on Valve's Steam Deck.Key Features
- One-Click Installation Including Downloading Aurora if Necessary
- Single Sign On
- Auto Start Aurora with Game by Default
- Optionally Start Aurora in Background
- Optionally Start Aurora Delayed
- Customizable Settings Per Game Including Preferred Proton Version
- Auto Update
- Easy Way to Use it with UPlay or Epic Launcher(s)
(- More Features Coming Soon!)
The best possible way to convey how helpful this software is by watching these two short demo/tutorial videos:
Still not convinced? We are currently in an OPEN BETA
phase of the tool where anyone and everyone may download it and check it out.
In order to use this tool you must have a Cheat Happens member account (Link
). In order to use all of the cheats in Aurora you will also need a Cheat Happens PREMIUM ACCOUNT (monthly or higher - Link
). Please be aware that this is not some kind of universal launcher like SteamTinker. It has been specifically designed for use with our Aurora all-in-one trainer management software.
This thread will serve as an open discussion and troubleshooting for the app. We may open up a dedicated message board in the future.
Lastly, please understand that this tool is NOT REQUIRED
to get Aurora up and running on the Steam Deck. We have instructions (Link
), a video tutorial (Link
) and helpful FAQ (Link
) on how to do this on your own, however many users get tripped up on one or more of these manual tasks which is why we created this tool.
We truly hope this tool makes your experience with your Steam Deck and Aurora a much better one. It was a HUGE effort to bring this to market.MORE INFO OR DOWNLOAD TOOL
Thanks to user Jaz10 who made an FAQ on the Steam Deck, be sure to check it out before asking questions: Link// EDIT 08.16.2023
-- Aurora v1.7.7 released to the main channel. Includes several Steam Deck improvements. Updated mobile apps also released which now allow mobile app control on the Steam Deck. Note that BOTH Aurora and the mobile apps must be updated to latest version for this to work.

Special thanks go to our awesome community for helping us in finding a way to finally get Aurora up and running on Valve's Steam Deck. Shout out to member bb1bsc
for his extremely helpful videos and tutorial.
We have created a video on how to get Aurora up and running on your Steam Deck. VERSION 2.
Also available at Link
As of Aurora v1.7.0, it is necessary to use the (currently experimental) Proton version 8 or higher (not shown in latest video).
Here is a quick guide:
Step 1: Update protonupqt
Step 2: launch it and remove steamtinker without removing the options you saved (it will prompt a message choose dont delete) and the proton version you have installed.
Step 3: install latest steamtinker and proton stable version
Step 4: in the steamtinker game menu under proton version choose: proton 8.0-1d
Repeat step 4 for all of the games.
All should be fine now.
