Big Picture Mode - Steam Controller

  • Hey everyone, I hope you are all well.

    Does anyone have any advice regarding Steam's big picture mode after the update? When t6rmp was used, big picture mode could be linked to the program by adding a non-steam game. Now that Plutonium.exe is being used, it kind of side-loads Black Ops 2 and breaks big picture mode as soon as the game is launched from plutonium.exe's menu. I have tried adding both programs to the non-steam game library, but as soon as Plutonium executes the game such as Black OPs 2, the controller immediately stops working. I'm trying to use a Steam Controller by the way. I would be grateful for any advice if someone has managed to get the Steam Controller working. Thank you.

  • Its possible they've removed support for steam controllers, seems a lot of features have been stripped out. I would kind of liken it to the opera browser when they switched over to chromium, took them a while to add all the important stuff back in.

    that said, have you tried adding the bootstrapper to the list of non steam games? they're under C:\users\username\appdata\local\plutonium

    If that works let me know! I have a friend who's switch controller won't work anymore and if this works I'll want to let him know he doesn't have to spend on a new controller

  • We've tried to get Steam to work but it doesn't seem to like the new version, we will keep trying but for now, there's no solution for Switch controllers etc. Only Xbox and Playstation.

  • Thanks for the reply guys. It isn't the switch controller that I'm trying to get working though. It is the Steam Controller. Maybe you guys can figure out how to get the Steam overly working again.

    I personally have never tried this because I do not own a steam controller. But with a little bit of googling this may solve your problem.

    Essentially what you want is to emulate an xbox 360 controller using your steam controller. So like DS4Windows does this for PS4 controllers, the SC-Controller program says it does essentially the same for Steam Controllers

  • @Matrix Interesting, thanks for sharing. I will most likely test this out tonight, and report back!
    if not tonight, sometime this week for sure
