Under Linux, Rumble doesn't work in Team Fortress 2 and Portal 2. Portal 2 complains that the controller is not a haptic device. Don't know if this has anything to do with hardware revisions.

Has anyone else not gotten the firmware update for their steam controller?

After the Controller Firmware update, when I launch a game, I get haptic feedback when I press right trigger even half way. The left trigger has to be pushed all the way down to get any feedback. Is a mind bender.

Anyone else seeing this? Is this a bug in the new firmware?

@cybik I don’t use pulseaudio.

@stan check your PulseAudio output device when running the game. pavucontrol is awesome.

@MasterDslay - "Valve needs to make their own "Steam Machine Force Feedback Wheel" now" - yeah man coupled with the Vive in Assetto Corsa that would be sweet!

Feedback on the rumble from 2 hardware revisions :)

The Revision 9 board has the worst haptic feedback and thus has a worse rumble. (first batch)
The Revision 10 board (bought this month) has a better haptic feedback and it's rumble is also rather nice. it's not identical to a normal controller, but it's much better than nothing :)

I do wish I'd be able to set it on a global basis instead of a per-game one.
I'm not sure if it's just this one game, but the right trackpad's feedback seemed to be worse though.

Not sure if someone from Valve is reading this but I still have no sound in three Unity games: Adventure Capitalist, Hitman GO, and Super Night Riders. With or without the Steam beta. On Gentoo Linux 64 bit and ALSA 1.0.29.
I do have sound in all the other games I tried recently, so maybe it’s a totally unrelated issue.

Wow, I just tried the "Experimental Rumble" feature in Assetto Corsa - now, THAT was awesome...
Valve needs to make their own "Steam Machine Force Feedback Wheel" now.
