Any chance you can share your RDR2 settings for SD? I tried it once and it was just so laggy I had to refund it.

I turned a few settings down to minimum so I could play at full resolution with zero fan noise and my battery lasts over 3 hours while playing. It looks good to me but that's subjective. I can send details when I get to my deck

RDR2 feels like a running cutscene where I have to hold A and hope the stupid horses follow the other stupid horses. Then the stupid game keeps trying to put me Online... look.. I'm anti-social, I don't need some kids reminding me why I dislike people.

The whole first chapter of RDR2 really sucks. It is painfully on rails, dialog heavy, non skippable cutscene garbage.

Get through it as fast as you can and the rest of the game has been amazing. I'm at about 60% through it. I play some on my deck almost every night

Hmmm, can Division 1 and 2 be ran with Vulkan? Does either or both of the games support it?

EDIT - I have Div1 and 2. Never finished Div1; and never even booted Div 2. Yeah...I'm so lazy, I know.

EDIT: I misread. You're looking for vulkan info but I read this as proton. Sorry.

On the deck it looks like division 1 is "gold" while division 2 is borked per

Smigadoon was awesome. Very funny and a clever premise.

Mythic quest had a good first season and then it really fell off.

Funny that the Microsoft thread is the place to talk Apple (TV).

Yeah the issue with KH1/2 is A) the launcher will just loop unless you direct it to the games EXE, so to switch games you would need to point Heroic to the correct Exe each time. And B) issue is the FMV's are coded in DX11 and the actual game in DX12 (from what i gather), Proton/Wine/Lutris cant handle Engine changes mid game I guess, so the work around is to rename the EPIC folder in file system which forces the games to not play the FMV/Prerendered Cutscenes, the game will just skip them automatically.

Not a big heroic user but you can make game entries for all those exe's within steam; just make sure to give them all the same STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH (command customization) so they all share the same install location.

This is how you can set up most 3rd party launcher games to work on their own steam icon entries without installing the launcher again and again for each individual game from that launcher.
