The latest stable branch Steam Deck update has fixed multiple games.
On the fixing side of things, a focus issue in Forza Horizon 5 has now been patched, and graphical corruption issues present in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and the Resident Evil 4 remake have also been fixed up.
The Resident Evil 4 fix is perhaps the big one of the bunch. When I played the demo on Steam Deck, Leon was constantly surrounded by Minecraft-like black pixels. No amount of settings tweaks or custom Proton versions could fix it either.
Thankfully, as I hoped, Valve has stepped in to fix whatever issue was causing the graphical corruption. Happy days!
Wo Long, meanwhile, also saw a similar fix, though when I tested the game out when the update was in the beta channel, this fix didn’t do anything for the inconsistent framerate, sadly. Oh well.
