LEGION GO UPDATE 02.02.2024

Hi All,

Happy Friday.  Want to address the Space update from this week and some other hot topics today.

Legion Space (v1.0.2.7)

This was released Thursday night North America time.  It included all planned updates such as:

  • Integration of Driver and BIOS updates (still opt-in, not automatic, in case you prefer to stay on current version of a particular driver)
  • Added customizable fan curves
  • Added ability to set controller sleep duration
  • Added FPS Limiter (note, this may trigger and/or require a reset of profile settings in AMD Adrenalin to work properly)
  • Added Left and Right Trigger travel adjustment
  • Added ability to reset deadzones and response curves to default values
  • Added ability to toggle LED light on power button
  • Added support for 8 additional languages: Croatian, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Turkish, Ukrainian

Some further commentary on this:

  • The "leaked" Space Beta (1.0.2.6), the link has been modified for the future, so to save some of you time, experimenting with the previously released URL won't yield any results for future releases.  The reason we have a Beta program is to test and iron out the update before it's rolled out to the general public, so if you found a way to get access to it outside of that program, please keep in mind that you lack the context it was released with.
  • The version numbers will be sequential mostly, 1.0.2.6 was released in beta, some bugs were found and fixed warranting an updated version number to 0.7.
  • The FPS limiter may receive some tweaks in the future to improve functionality and possibly offer more customization options.
  • A majority of the above were implemented at the request of the community.  As such, anything added in this update that needs further improvement we will address if/as possible, so appreciate continued feedback.  

Installation of BIOS v29

Have seen a few posts/comments about people having issues with the v29 update.  Everyone's situation and proclivities are somewhat different but generally:

  • Ensure your battery is above 50% (know it says 30% but just to be extra safe)
  • When the system reboots to install, white bar goes to 100% slowly,
  • Screen will turn off, fans off, everything off, red LED on the power button still on, may sit like that for a while, don't  force reboot/power off/etc.
  • Let it complete, it'll come back on, white bar will start again from 0% and complete and then reboot.

Most people aren't having any issues and we didn't encounter any issues in beta testing or internal testing but we're doing our due diligence and trying to look into the few reports of failure as much as we can.

Custom TDP

There are 3 adjustments required for full TDP control (sPPT, fPPT, TDP), only one is implemented so far and isn't working properly. We'll get a fix out for this ASAP.  The other two will be implemented later for full control.  I was going to provide a longer explanation but it's all very technical, and I don't want to confuse anyone.  Most users won't care and don't need to care about it but wanted to update those that do.

SD Card Stutter

The beta driver I posted last week seems to have improved the stutter for some people affected by it.  There is a further update to that driver which might improve things a bit more (adjusted wake up timing for the reader).  I've posted it in the same forum post with a second download link for those interested.  If possible, please let me / us know if this is solving or at least improving your issues (for those of you that are having any).  Again, this isn't something widespread but want to address what we can for users having performance issues.

Follow-Ups from Previous Posts

  • AFMF support for Go - working with AMD on implementation, no ETA currently but fully understand the benefits/importance and working to get that to you as soon as possible.
  • Still discussing internally about Fan solution.  There is an updated fan that will at some point become available as a part replacement.  In the mean time some users have found success with the strategic use of tape - a reddit or google search may help find more information that I am not able to provide.
  • Controller wobble can be addressed with a call to the service department (contact number will vary by Geography, in the US/Canada it should be 1-888-278-9707)
  • Left Speaker noise - until we can reproduce it, we can not "root cause" it, but still working to find an affected unit that we can get hands on.

Go-Forward Priorities

Custom TDP Fix

Key Mapping Support

Improving Gyro Support

Battery Charge Limiting

Addition of fPPT/sPPT control for TDP

The key mapping is planned to come in two waves, wave 1 will include the ability to re-map keys and map to keyboard keys/etc., wave 2 will include per-game key maps.  Again this requires a lot of cross functional work and is more resource intensive so appreciate the continued patience.

That's all I have for this week.  Given the global holiday schedule there may not be too much to update over the next couple of weeks.  If I have anything noteworthy I will provide you all if/as it makes sense, if not there may not be another significant update until I do.  We have a lot to work on, add, and optimize.

Thanks for your continued support and interest in the product!

  • Thanks for great update! We got the fps limiter, what do you say about custom refresh rates to accomplish the fluidness? Wink

  • Thanks for sharing new about those updates, key mapping is really a huge one!

    Also the option to limit fps

  • The updates are great btw but I wanted to add some issues I'm seeing.   

    1. Turning on AMD RSR in the LS quick menu only activates with 100 sharpness. 

        a. Turning RSR off will not revert to previous settings, like if you had AMD chill enabled before     

    2. Opening LS quick menu will turn off AMD Chill. 

         a. Would be nice to have an AMD Chill toggle under RSR in LS quick menu, which would enable with previous FPS settings. 

    3. Legion buttons swap should have the shortcuts moved to the swapped buttons or have the option to swap to the swapped buttons. Now that the buttons have swapped, using select then a button for a Legion shortcut can interfere with the game. 

    4. Nice to have would be extra resolutions as some games only recognise system resolutions or the 3 resolutions we see in LS. So 1280x720, 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 might be nice as defaults and allowing custom resolutions like in the AMD software would be great for a custom wide resultions. 

    5. Custom tdp only seems to give 30 watts. I guess you know that. But to use 5w would be great. 

    6. Controller mapping currently has XBOX. Would be great if you could also create a playstation pad, not sure is it's possible or wanted. 

    And the obvious is to have the ability to map keyboard keys and multi button presses i.e. x & y or other combos or Xbox/steam button to the rear buttons.

    7. In LS quick menu changing OS Power mode doesn't seem to work anymore.

    But great updates so far and really appreciate the communications from the Devs on this forum.

    And love my Legion Go.

    Many thanks.

  • Nice to see all the extra adjustability and that updates are optional, so you can skip them just before a trip when you don't want to take any risks.
