installing games

The installation works with Origin on the Steam Deck just like you are used to on the PC. However, we recommend adjusting the installation path every time you install a new game so that you can find the files yourself. Since the launcher itself runs behind the “Proton” compatibility layer, the default folder structure is very nested and hidden. Proceed as follows during installation:

  1. Starts Origin in the game mode.
  2. choose that respective game and click on the “Download” button.
  3. Press on “Install Location” now “Change location”.
  4. Now navigate to Z:homedeckOrigin and click on the “Open” button.
