Legion Go Update 12.15.23

Hi All,

Few updates today...

  • Legion Space v1.0.2.4 (Mid-December Update)
    • Our software team wants to spend a bit more time in testing on this one to ensure a higher-quality release.  We had some weather issues impacting their ability to get to the office as well as some other delays which affected speed of collaboration and testing.  The testing period is not something we want to compress if it can be avoided.
    • We're still on track for the "mid-December" release timing (likely sometime next week)
    • Fixes and Updates will include:
      • Deadzone Management & Response Curve adjustments
      • Xbox Key Mapped to Legion L + RS (for now, will be looking to make further improvements to this in later releases once full key mapping becomes available)
      • Solving the issue with controller input still being passed to games while the right menu is being navigated
      • Trackpad vibration switch
      • Fixes for bugs in lighting configuration
      • Fixes for the bug that disables Legion keys in battery saver mode
      • [New] Ability to swap Legion L/R with View/Menu keys (aka Start & Select)
      • Added Alt+F4 keyboard shortcut to the Quick Settings Menu (again short-term fix until we can add full keyboard mapping to buttons)
    • Special thank you to our Beta testers for volunteering time and efforts to help augment our testing processes, has been a pleasure working with you.  This is still a closed beta for now and will reach out if/when we need additional testers.
    • I understand that hopes were high to get an official update out today (mine included) to address the Deadzone issues (for everyone) and it pains us to have disappointed anyone, but we need to balance speed with quality. 
      • One thing I do need everyone to understand is that the dates and timelines I'm providing are targets with the best information available at the time - not commitments or promises.  Things can, do, and will happen to impact our target dates for releases.
      • I did look very hard into finding a way to get the pre-release FW and SW out to everyone today in lieu of the official release on an opt-in basis, however after careful consideration and discussion with some internal and external folks, ultimately decided it would create more problems than it solved.  Appreciate your understanding on this and apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Future Space Updates Being Evaluated (no new info here):
    • Key Customization / Key Mapping (High Priority, but requires coordination between a lot of teams and dev groups)
    • Use of Left/Right triggers for Mouse Clicks (above implementation will allow this)
    • Ability to "hide" games in Space
    • Desktop Mode or similar
    • Taskbar/System Tray Minimization of Space (Please note the Legion R key right menu flyout already works even without loading Space in currently released version)
    • Additional customization options for space (tentative) 
    • Driver, BIOS, Firmware updates incorporated into Legion Space eliminating the need to rely on manual / alternate update paths
    • DPI Settings for trackpad & FPS mode
    • FPS limiter which will include: 30, 36, 48, 60, 72, custom.
    • Adjustable Fan Curves in Space (v28 BIOS already added some support for this but not user accessible at the moment)
    • Ability to turn off light on power button
    • Adjust automatic sleep timing on controllers
    • LT/RT Deadzone / Activation Point adjustments (tentative)
  • New VGA Drivers
    • Per previous posts these are still in the works and an extremely high priority for the back-end teams.
    • We did encounter a bug with the driver that we are working to resolve and is currently the only gating issue to getting this out.
    • Once resolved we will try to fast-track the roll out of the driver
    • If it ends up taking too much longer I will work with the back-end team to do another test-release if possible and explain the bug we've encountered so that you can make an informed decision whether to install it or not before it is released officially.
  •  Miscellaneous
    • Added priority to request to implement charge limits (limiting battery charge to 80-90%) to help with longevity while docked (aka "Conservation Mode")
    • Team is continuing work on investigating customer concerns outlined in my previous posts (wont re-hash them all here)
      • Please see earlier update posts for more complete information on known issues, once we have updates on those they will be shared.

Thanks as always for your continued interest, patience, support, and understanding.

  • It's a shame that the update will not be released today, but it's understandable, thanks for the update Ben and keep the good work.

  • Ben! I wanted to just do a quick reply to this. And after working with you, seeing you work sooooo hard to get this update out today for everyone and then having to give this bad news, I still want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for all the late nights you have been spending, all the efforts you made trying to get a guide together and work with international teams to get this in our hands. I think this was the correct call! And I think many people would agree they would rather see an update that is useable and won't break things in the end.

    Being a tester, I have some insight into the new software headed their way, and I think people have an insane amount of features to look forward to and really be happy about and I think when we look back at this in a week or two weeks people should and will appreciate this decision even more!

    Thank you again for all that you guys do! You guys really are amazing! And THANK YOU for trying your dang near hardest to get this out to everyone. I literally cannot say you didn't put your best foot forward and try everything you possibly could to get this out. For that! Again THANK YOU for sacrificing your time, your families time and the teams time to work on this for us!

    I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I look forward to the rollout to the public VERY soon!

  • Appreciate it, very much.

  • I second! Not as a tester, but as an individual that has recognized everyone's hard work and input. Thank you for this amazing community!

  • Thank you for all you do!

  • Thank you for all that you do.

  • Gutted, but it's got to be right. It will be a great Christmas present. 

  • Thank you Ben and the entire Legion Go Team. Your diligence, efforts, and overall transparency in communication has been a breath of fresh air. Take the time needed to ensure all is well, as we stand behind you. It's more than obvious that the Team is prioritizing requests/releases according to very sound judgment to ensure an excellent experience for all of us. 

    Looking forward to when it's ready.

    Sidenote: Any update on possibly including a mechanism for activating/deactivating the Legion R flyout settings menu when Controllers are not connected or nearby? Thanks again!

  • I still appreciate the transparency and to me personally, communicating that you want to release a higher quality update is better than no communication and then an update appears.

    Thank you for all you do!

  • I know this might be a long shot but is it possible to have a game launcher that would give the ability to alter the graphics settings of the game when launching depending on if you are docked or not. I am currently running my legion go connected to a 4060ti when at home and just using it as designed when traveling, having to switch setting each time is tedious. Great product overall though and am loving this as my one gaming rig both at home and on the go. Great work on everything, love the updates even the ones i don't want to hear.
