The beta has just been updated with the following changes:
Expanded the Resume and Explore part of Library, adding more rows based on what your friends are playing, what games have updated, and others.
Added a new touchpad mode, Mouse Region. This lets a touchpad be mapped to a configurable, fixed region of the game window, such that touching the pad in a given zone will always position the mouse cursor to the same matching spot in that region. This can be used to improve accuracy and responsiveness in top-down action games and strategy games. Mouse Region modes can warp the cursor to and from their region when they are activated through mode-shifts, which can be useful for holding a button to activate a smaller Mouse Region above the minimap in a strategy game. The regions are also reshapable, allowing a configuration to temporarily activate a horizontal, flat Mouse Region on top of a skillbar in a roleplaying game.
Added support for visualizing small Mouse Region modes in the Controller HUD.
With this client, a new firmware for the controller has also been released with improved touchpad finger tracking and various other bug fixes.
Modified all capture paths to use NVENC when available. Side-by-side comparisons show significant improvement in both quality and latency.
Reworked AMD hardware encoding to improve smoothness and reduce hitching.
Known issue: the specific combination of AMD hardware encoding + client-side hardware decoding still results in black frames/flickering. We are still investigating along with AMD, but for now we recommend that you disable either hardware encoding or client-side hardware decoding as a workaround.
