Stream Deck Config Panel

If a control surface to activate function remotely is needed, we recommend acquiring an Elgato Stream Deck and connect it via USB to the same computer Legion is running on. Legion is able to communicate with the unit without the need of any other external software.
 
To setup, click on Settings||Configure Stream Deck located on main menu.
