How simple is the installation process for EmuDeck?

It is recommended that you have a microSD card installed and properly prepared before attempting to install EmuDeck. While it is possible to install EmuDeck onto the internal SSD, we suggest using a microSD card as it is more cost-effective and a more suitable option for emulation. The installation process for EmuDeck is relatively straightforward and typically takes around 20-30 minutes, depending on the number of games you choose to add. We recommend being selective with the games you add, at least initially.

When I click the Download App button, the file downloaded is a text document. Why is this happening?

The installer is a script (text file) that needs to be run. To do this, right-click on the Install EmuDeck icon and select properties. Under the Permissions tab, check the box next to Is executable and click the OK button. Try running the installer again. If you are unsure how to right-click, please refer to the Steam Deck Reference for further guidance.
