Hace unas semanas les informamos acerca de los planes de Valve para agregar soporte nativo en Steam para el Dualshock 4 de Sony. Hoy, Valve lanzó un nuevo cliente beta que agrega soporte para dicho gamepad. Cuando esté habilitado, los controladores de PS4 tendrán acceso a la misma personalización/configuración y soporte que tienen los pad de Steam, incluyendo soporte nativo para la API. Los jugadores pueden habilitarlo en las configuraciones de Big Picture (Agregar/Probar configuraciones de controlador).

Con este sistema, se puede configurar el trackpad, gyro, los botones, etc, para parecerse a un teclado, mouse o x-input output el cual puede hacer uso de varios tipos de sets y menus. En adición, esta nueva beta viene con plantillas de PS4 por defecto, y agrega más opciones de ancho de banda para streaming 4K, y mejora los errores al querer correr un juego de 64-bit en un SO de 32.

Debajo, tienen el changelog (en inglés):

General

  • Updated web control to CEF v54.0.2840. This version requires Windows 7 or macOS 10.9 and above, users on older OS versions will continue running the existing version.
  • Fixed third-party mods showing up as the incorrect game name in friends lists
  • Improved the error message shown when trying to run a 64-bit game on a 32-bit OS
  • Improved download and patching speeds when games are installed to a traditional non-SSD hard drive

Controller

  • Added Steam Configurator support for PS4 Dual Shock Controller. Note that this is a beta release. Enable in Big Picture settings Add/Test Controller settings. When enabled, PS4 controllers will have access to the same sort of customization/configuration support as Steam Controllers, including native API support.
  • PS4 Controllers using this system can map the trackpad, gyro, buttons, etc. to keyboard, mouse, or x-input outputs and can make use of action sets, touch menus, radial menus, and so forth.
  • Added New Mode – Joystick Mouse. This is a joystick based mouse control useful for stick based controllers.
  • Added default PS4 templates.
  • Added software calibration for non-Steam controller based IMUs to counter for gyro drift.
  • Configuration Browser can now be toggled to show all available controller types rather than the default of the in-use controller type.
  • Configurations can now be marked as “Unique” to a specific controller. This configuration will only be applied to that controller for that user’s account. By default, all controllers of a specific type will share a configuration unless marked as Unique.
  • Big Picture now supports PS4 controller glyphs when using Steam Configurator support.

Streaming

  • Automatically restart Steam if it crashes while streaming a game
  • Added higher bandwidth options for 4K streaming
