Proton 9.0-1 has been released into the stable branch, offering a lot of new playable games and fixes that are sure to enhance your gaming experience. However, along with this exciting development, there have been some reported issues hindering the downloading of Proton 9.0-1, making it difficult to access certain games. There is a workaround available – you can force Proton 8.0-5 in the compatibility preferences for a game.

Steam Deck Beta Client 5/4/24 Changelog:


  • Fixed download notification for newly downloaded DLC not showing the correct name.

Desktop Mode

  • Fixed desktop notifications no longer displaying after editing notes for a game


  • Fixed problems downloading Proton 9.

Steam Input

  • Fix Regression for "Custom Deadzones" not applying correctly.
  • UI: Joystick Mouse Deadzone controls now use the common Deadzone Editor.
  • Added "Invert Command Binding" for FlickStick's Outer Ring Command.
  • Added an option to allow the FlickStick to trigger a Flick Turn if the stick is thrown when the action set/action layer/mode shift is activated.
  • Reset Camera to Horizon/Turn Camera to Face Direction/ Turn Camera 360: these actions will still work even if Flick Stick or Gyro to Mouse are removed from your settings. Dots per 360 must first be calibrated using those two modes, however.

If you're eager to try out these exciting updates for yourself, simply head to your System Settings and change your update channel to Beta or Preview. This will give you access to all the latest features and fixes that will take your gaming adventures to the next level.
