Steam Big Picture problems

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Sep 24, 2016 7:51 pm

Hi all,

Has anybody had any problems with their C2 games not showing in Steam Big Picture mode? My users have reported that all they get is audio with a black screen. I made a local multiplayer game so getting my game to show in Steam Big Picture Mode is a crucial thing.

Is this an issue with Fullscreen? Should I use browser fullscreen or nwjs maximize? Thanks!

And if you were curious to the game, it's Ballistic Tanks. http://store.steampowered.com/app/493060

What exactly do you mean with "problems"?
Do you experience a crash, does it start at all, if you receive an error message what does it tell you?
Please provide more details so I might be able to help you, if it's really related to Steam.

Thanks for the response @TheRealDanny.

My users have reported that they just get a black screen when opening up the game from Steam in Big Picture Mode. They get audio but just a black screen. I presume this has something to do with the fullscreen action, but I am not sure.

Thanks again.

Related to Steam link and/or NW.js not BigPicture itself

Ah thanks for the clarification @Madspy. Is there a fix for this?

I didn't test enough this feature to be sure but I think the issue is caused by H.264 codec used by steam Link. These codecs are not included with nw.js due to the license needed for them.

Ah thanks for letting me know. That's such a bummer. I was able to get Big Picture mode to work on my end, though sometimes with a weird sound delay. So I'm not sure what the exact issue is with some of my users. Guess there isn't much I can do.

Thanks again MadSpy.
