I just aquired a Steam controller and found that it works only with Steam games in your library. It works as an overlay so it's adjustments and settings are outside your games normal controller settings. The question is has anyone had success putting a non Steam game into their Steam library ? It is said that the controller might work with some non Steam games if they are in your library and will accept the overlay.

Overall I like it but the right pad is very hard to get used to for aiming or precision anything.

Well yet another reason to not buy one. I know that Steam is pushing their OS hard but releasing a controller that only works with steam games is dumb as hell.

If the issue resume to STEAM overly, try with the "ADD Non-STEAM Game to my Library" in STEAM Games tab, this allow me use the STEAM overlay with some games not bough through STEAM.

Impressions in use this controller in flight game there: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=150510

This has been fixed with the latest firmware patch along with some other changes due to customer feedback.
