What happened to the original Pressure?

It's still a thing. Sort of. I'm now focusing most of my time on supporting Pressure², but will continue to support Pressure with bug fixes as I work on an entirely redone version - "Pressure Classic". You can download the latest version of Pressure on Pressure for Steam's GitHub Repo.

I found a bug/issue/problem!

Please report it on the Issue Tracker.

When reporting a bug always:

  1. Switch back to Steam's normal theme and see if it occurs there. (If it does, don't report it here, report it to Steam).
  2. Explain if you are in the Steam BETA. Does it happen out of the BETA?
  3. Include a Screenshot of the bug.
  4. Provide steps on how to reproduce the bug.

This is how your Issue Report should appear

Tweaks for Pressure²

There are a few tweaks available, all of which can be found in the config.ini file. This file should explain enough to get by, but otherwise here are some more details instructions:

Disable Uninstalled Game transparency in the Grid View

Open config.ini, and locate the line //include "includes/tweaks/grid/not-transparent.styles", remove the "//" at the start of this line. Now locate the line include "includes/tweaks/grid/transparent.styles" and add "//" to the start of this line. Restart Steam.

Remove the green overlay in Game Details View's header.

Open config.ini, and locate the line //include "includes/tweaks/gamebackgroundoverlay/disable.styles", remove the "//" at the start of this line. Now locate the line include "includes/tweaks/gamebackgroundoverlay/enable.styles" and add "//" to the start of this line. Restart Steam.

Contributing to Pressure²

I welcome anybody who would like to contribute to Pressure² whether it be graphics, code, or written word. If you are contributing code to the project I ask that you follow the code formatting below.

  • Always indent with tabs, do not indent with spaces.
  • When modifying the layout of elements, always follow a "Left, Top, Right, Bottom, Width by Height" mantra.

Organize any styles in the following way:

bgcolor
selectedbgcolor
textcolor
selectedtextcolor
shadowtextcolor
font-family
font-size
font-weight
font-style
font-outerglow-color
font-outerglow-filtersize
font-outerglow-offset
minimum-width
minimum-height
inset
inset-left
inset-top
inset-right
inset-bottom
padding-left
padding-top
padding-right
padding-bottom
image

And when modifying layouts, organize each control as below:

name
control
region
start
align
dir
x
y
width
height
margin
spacing
overflow
end-right
