Did you know that you can customize your Steam Deck with official power-up animations? I show you how to do it without downloading anything
Without a doubt, one of the coolest things to tinker with our pots is to personalize them. Having not only your device, but turning it into an extension of your tastes and preferences is crucial, and the Steam Deck is not far behind in this. Did you know that you can customize your boot animation? Not only that, but Valve gives you the tools to do it.
Well yes! there are ways to do it fiddling with internal files of the laptop, but that can throw off more than one. Even so, if this has given you a low, don’t worry, because from Steam there is a way to get official animations, and they are so cool!
Do you know Steam points? These are small rewards that the company gives you when you spend money in the Steam store. For every euro used, you will receive 108 points that will help you get different improvements for your profile. From avatars or backgrounds to displays and animations, you have a little bit of everything. The Steam Deck is no stranger to these rewards either.
In the Steam Points store, you will be able to get new starting animations to have the coolest Deck without having to download anything from third parties or modify any of the parameters of your machine. For this, yes, you will need to meet some requirements.
First and foremost: all animations cost 3,000 Steam Points, so you’ll need to have spent some money in the store to get them. Specifically, taking into account the rate of 108 points per euro, you will need a total minimum expense of 27.78 euros. This may have been done in many different purchases, it does not have to be at once. In addition to that, you will need to have version 3.4.6 or later than SteamOS on your machine.
If you meet both requirements, all you have to do is head to the boot animations area of the points store. Once there, buy the one you want and it will be tied to your profile. To activate it, you will only have to follow a couple of steps more, and these start at your system options.
Once there, simply go to the customization area (which is under the keyboard options) and there you can configure them. Also, if you get several, you can have them used randomly every time you turn on your laptop to give your system a little more variety.
Finally, if you want even more customization, Valve also lets you buy skins for the virtual keyboard, which you will be able to apply from the configuration menu of this. Of course, the level of customization on your machine is higher than it might seem, and I’m personally looking forward to seeing it expand.
