TDM on Steam Link for Android

Recommended Posts

Some days earlier, Valve released a beta of Steam link for android.
With this you can play your games from your system to a android device.
(it streams only the players view, audio and control between your system and android device.)

I noticed that you can play also non-steam games on steam link,
So In this topic i will report and post small updates, how i run TDM on steam link on my TV.
I want to hear your experience with this, questions, comments, etc.

== Gear ==
Device: TV. Sony bravia with android tv (version ??)
Controller: Logitech gamepad F310 (it detect my gamepad but using now a wireless keyboard). Joypad wired conntect on tv, keyboard wireless..
System (laptop): Intel core i75700hq, 2.70ghz, 8 gb ram, Intel® HD Graphics 5600 or "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M", windows 10.
Network: wired Ethernet (15 mb's reports steam link, have to measure it myself)
TDM: TDM 2.05

== Setup ==

Connecting devices:

  1. Setup your network settings so the two systems on are the same network. (it did configure my software firewall)
  2. Install steam on your system and steam link-app on your android device.
  3. Add tdm as a non-steam game in steam on your system
  4. Start steam link on your android device In steam link have to detect your system
  5. put in a connection-id that steam link give you, in your steam on your system.
  6. end

Configure joypad

  • Start steam on your system
  • Go settings > controller settings. There select checkboxes "xbox configuration support" and "generic gamepad configuration support".
  • Close steam.
  • plug the joypad into your system
  • Steam detect your joypad and advices you to go big picture view.
  • Then start TDM, you will get a controller profile selection screen and Select "TDM shadrach bindings" profile.
  • end

== Running TDM ==

  1. Start steam on your system
  2. Start steam link on your android device.
  3. Inside steam link, Connect to your system in steam link,
  4. Steam on systems starts in big picture mode and you can select TDM to start from your library.
  5. end

== Status ==
TDM start on Steam link!
Every thing works!
Missions loads. sound works. all smooth.
Not fullscreen immediatly
Controlling tdm i use my wireless keyboard, because Joypad doesnt work in TDM, (works in steam link)
Cannot connect to system, when system is locked/screensaver/sleeping.

Yep. I set up Steam Link on my Samsung Smart TV (all it needs is a free app for your TV), and played a couple of Steam, and non-Steam games. Works fine.

 

TDM won't work with a gamepad though? Think i'll give it a try later.

Yes, TDM doesn't work with a gamepad, but Doom 3 does.

Is this, once again, a internal existing feature that the team removed? :angry:

And Is it possible to put it back?

 

Ok, you can connect a joypad to your system and use a systemkeybinders to work (like antimicro, xpaddle).

But this is not the standard way.

 

Overall everything works nice, only the controls in TDM messed up.

I am sure there was a thread about setting up a gamepad for TDM, but unfotunately I cannot find it anymore. I even cannot remember the subforum it was posted in :( But it is possible.

By "keybinders doesnt work with steam link", i meant,

the keybinders doesnt detect the same joypad, coming from steam link.

 

About controlling the games,

i was amazed by some games you dont have to configure your joypad, like deus ex breach, deus ex man kind devided and limbo,

Controlled games with wasd-keys + joypad mouse-look in half life 2,deus ex 1, doom 3 (at first time)

Yes, but those keybinders doesnt work with steam link.

 

Steam link uses joypad feature of a game, that tdm apperently doesnt have.

 

Alright, makes sense.

Dont know,

But in theory,

you can play tdm with your steam controller from your system,

if you add tdm as a nonsteam game to steam, run this from steam and if there is a gamepay profile.

(or you can select a gamepad profile and edit them to your liking)
