EmuDeck is a powerful tool that lets you do many different things. Many people use Emudeck to play retro games, but it can also host streaming services. If you plan on using an SD card to house EmuDeck, you’ll need it formatted in ext4 or btrfs. Here’s how to do it:
- Insert the SD card into your Deck and boot up Steam’s Game Mode
- Hit the Steam button and go to Settings.
- Tap on System.
- Scroll down to System Settings in this menu and select “Format SD card” (note that this will delete any data you have on the card).
The next step is to get the EmuDeck installer onto your Deck. You can do this by putting your SD card in your computer and transferring the files manually, or by downloading the installer directly on the device. Once the installer is on your device, you must switch to Desktop View. To do this, hold down the power button, then scroll down and click on the Switch to Desktop option. Now that you’re on your Deck’s desktop screen follow these two steps:
1. Open the EmuDeck installer and proceed through the installation process.
2. Select the “Easy Mode” Installer option when it appears. If you are confident enough, you can use the Custom Installer to tweak the app to your liking.
Now that EmuDeck is ready, we can move on to getting the app’s cloud services up and running.
