Just minor fixes, the change log is boring, so let's use the one from the previous version:

Hi guys, a few users reported some issues recently with the 2.5.0 version of UWPHook, this update addresses those:

  • Fixed 'value range' error when adding Sea of Thieves to Steam and launching it. Gears of War Ultimate Edition probably had the same issue.

  • Improved the new fullscreen launcher for Streaming games so it won't look like it is frozen/crashed.

Hi guys, long time no see!

Sorry for looking like this project died, it's just that i can't find a non-hacky way to make some things like proper joystick while streaming work, and making a half-assed feature would break a lot of things.

I've brought this release with a few improvements:

  • A installer!
  • A better experience when streaming: Now a new window will show up, with dark background while Steam is preparing the streaming, should make things more fluid.
  • Show proper names for Sea of Thieves and GOW Ultimate Edition

Hope you guys like this! The project could be not updated in a while, but it's not dead.

Kept you waiting huh.

Hi people, sorry for the long time I kept you waiting for this fix, I know this bug has been around for quite some time but I just didn't had the time to debug it, but now it is here:

IN-HOME STREAMING FIXED!

These fixes I've worked are functional over here at least and now UWP Games are all working as before, I still haven't found a workaround for the controllers, but since Steam now has an Xbox 360 configurator akin to the Steam Controller I might be capable of doing more progress towards remote streaming with controller support without needing to use a third party tool like VirtualHere.

Enjoy UWPHook!

Now, UWPHook will automatically add your UWP apps and games to Steam, it detects every app on your system and with a single click, adds them to Steam, including setting it's icon!

And on the settings page you will find a new option, called "Enable streaming mode", check this in the host computer to fix in-home streaming for UWP games.

Check detailed instructions at https://brianlima.github.io/UWPHook/
Enjoy your much better UWPHook!

2.2.1: Fixes a problem with apps that had protected or invalid images, fixing mainly the problem with Forza Horizon 3. Also, from now on I will upload releases on .zip format.

PS: If you have one of the releases before 2.0, please, re-add your UWP games to Steam using the new version.

Version 2.2.0
Added a special mode for Steam in-home Streaming, it fools Steam into
streaming the whole desktop then it brings the launched app to the
foreground.

Now, UWPHook will export the app icon to Steam when exporting new games,
it automatically decides on the biggest jpg to be used as icon.

PS: If you have one of the older releases, please, re-add your UWP games to Steam using the new version.

2.1.4: Fixes users with corrupted or too short VDF config files and fixes Forza Apex not showing up as a installed app.

2.1.2: This release gets the real name for all the apps installed on your pc, and excludes framworks, making it easier to find what you want, for example, Forza Horizon should be called "Forza Horizon 3" instead of Microsoft.OpusPG.

2.1.1: Some users had corrupted apps installed on their machines, this aims to fix that,

2.1.0: Last patch i published something that wasn't quite working. This fixes both that and users that don't have any shortcut added on Steam before running UWPHook.
