Legion Go Update 04.09.2024

Hi Everyone, 

Wanted to give you a heads up that the next Legion Space Update (1.0.2.[8 or 9]) will be rolled out to everyone very soon.

It will include:

  • New controller (0240401A) and main unit (0240403A) firmware
  • Button Mapping support (found in Controller->Button Mapping->Edit)
    • Ability to add/edit layouts for Game Pad and FPS mode
    • Ability to remap almost every button to controller buttons, mouse buttons, keyboard keys, and key combinations
    • You can then change button mapping profiles from the right menu to any you have previously created/edited
  • Charge limiting option (General-> Optimize battery charging)
    • Charge limit is set to 80% (+/- 5%) which is the best setting to prolong the life of the Legion Go Battery
  • Added Alt+Esc to the quick settings menu
  • Added a Link in the right menu help section that directs to the Legion Go community forum
  • Driver updates were optimized a bit and now list some of the currently installed versions.
  • Optimized the FPS limiter control, it is now fully customizable on a single sliding scale to any value between 30 and 144
  • Added a notification that the FPS limiter will be disabled when RSR is in use
  • Optimized controller plug/unplug notifications
  • Fixed an issue where the Legion L/R key were being invalidated under admin accounts in windows

Some of these will need to be further optimized/improved in future updates but should serve as a good foundation in the mean time.

Future improvements will likely include the ability to map the Xbox key, and per-game profiles (though you can name a profile for a specific game and switch to it manually already).  These updates, like the one above, will also take quite a while.

The next two major priorities will focus on a UI overhaul and structural adjustments as well as better Gyro implementation.

VGA driver update should be coming relatively soon as well, path to resolve the current bug that is gating the release has been identified, need to fix and test and then will release.

As we chart the course for the future of Legion Go, I want to share a personal update with you. While I care about and am deeply appreciative of this community, my direct involvement in product development (and thus my ability to advocate on your behalf) has been reduced. This is due in part to a strategic decision to leverage a broader array of feedback channels. However, please know that your voices and perspectives remain invaluable to our team, and there are systems in place to ensure that customer feedback continues to shape the evolution of Legion Go. Your engagement has been, and always will be, a driving force behind our innovation.

Thanks,

Ben

  • Thank you for always keeping us updated when you can  

    I'm looking forward to  "The next two major priorities will focus on a UI overhaul and structural adjustments as well as better Gyro implementation." you mentioned in your post. I'm mega curious about the UI overhaul that is planned. It would be exceptional to see a change for selecting a default view such as your library or the GamesPlanet store.

    Lastly, I'm eager to see gyro finally function... without workarounds. Keep up the good work!

  • Lets hope will came with vga and chipset package

  • so does battery bypass happen at 80% now?

  • Thank you! This sounds amazing!

    All the best to you!

  • First off all, thank you so much for your work! I'm loving my Legion Go more and more.

    What I would like to see in future updates:
    1. Add to controller customization the ability to use the mouse scroll wheel. So you can make it convenient to control the scroll on the left stick, since the touchpad does not give such a feature.
    2. Make it possible to enable mouse emulation on sticks. Please!
    3. Add additional commands for control mapping: normal click, double click, long press. Look how it is done in Steam, very cool thing to customize the control in individual games.

    And again, thank you for your work!

  • Thank you Mr Ben. Please keep up the good work and we appreciate hard work you at Lenovo putting on in this device.

  • I can't be the only one feeling like this has been the final nail in the coffin, am I? No mouth

  • What about the issues with audio not switching mid game when headphones are plugged in or unplugged? 

  • Thanks Ben! Just installed it now. So far so good, really exited about the battery limiter, will be using that all night. Hopefully wont have any issues. Again thanks, you rule

  • Hi @BwwJ1st
