    This site seems to be hosted in Russia and I don't trust them about anything. I'll pass as I am not tech savvy enough to check the source code myself.

      The cool thing ks you can just use the list and make the tweaks yourself. It's mostly source ports and community patches

    From the project’s GitHub page:

    Steam Superheater is an app which main purpose is to simplify the process of installing various must-have fixes and patches for Steam games.

    The ever-growing list of fixes includes, but not limited to (ultra)widescreen fixes, crash workarounds, unofficial patches, modern source ports for older games, and no intro fixes.

    It's not meant to be an ultimate mod manager, but rather an easy way to fix and improve Steam games that are broken or have troubles running on modern systems out of the box.

    It also has an installation guide for the Steam Deck.


    Disclaimer: I haven’t used this myself, but I could see it being useful — especially on the Deck where tinkering requires a bit more effort.

    This definitely has some major potential. People looking to help expand should probably start with PC Gaming Wiki.

      This is actually really exciting. I have an ever growing set of old games I've had to patch up and I'm always worried about what happens if i lose the drive and have to redo it all. Depending on how hard it is to contribute to this, I may be adding to it in my free time.
