Valve Adds Steamworks API For Their New Controller
Valve added the Steamworks API support yesterday for handling their new Steam Machines controller inside new games.
This Steamworks API support for the Steam Controller will allow games to take direct control of the controller. For other games there is still the legacy mode for the new controller that's premiered with the Steam Machines beta prototypes.
As I reported last week, the Steam Controller works out-of-the-box on Linux as for now it runs off the generic HID input driver for Linux so it appears as a normal input device.
For those with Steam Controllers or game developers looking to support the new controller API, stop by SteamCommunity.com for more details.
