Steam is one of the most popular gaming platforms out there. In many ways, it’s helped modernize the world of PC gaming so that titles don’t always have to be physical copies. But it’s grown into something so much more. You can share games with friends and family, play the games you have in different ways, and even give gifts to other players if you want. But with all these expansions gives new room for bugs and errors to grow. That’s why Valve updates Steam to fix these problems.
A new client update has just been released, And with it comes many new fixes, some improvements, and more. Here’s a small taste of things that have been fixed.
Some players were experiencing framerate issues in getting help from the Steam Client when things didn’t connect to servers properly, and this has been fixed. If your primary drive is out of data, and thus can’t download anything, the Steam client will now download to other drives. For those who have been having trouble finding out about the client updates, that has been fixed as well.
There was an odd problem with Big Picture mode that wouldn’t let it start up right if it was still “attached” to a monitor that wasn’t in use. This has been rectified. For those who have been doing in-house streaming, there have been improvements and fixes to the experience so that it may go more smoothly for you.
Other errors and bugs that have been fixed include games having trouble detecting controllers, bugs being caused by having multiple Steam controllers connected, certain controller functions not working reliably, and many, many more.
