If you find out if it works it will be nice to know. If you are asking if it nice to play it on touchscreen - It was great for me to play it on Android phone. UI of 1993 game fits well for fingers.

I am not good with SD yet. Do not know how to install it on her. Can not find any good ways to do it on google too.

I like android but there are still fews things are not good with android. still playable but not as good as PC. I think if it works on SD then it will be something better than android but still not as good as PC.

I know that you may install any operating system on this console. Idk how it works. They have some sort of Linux on it by default. So, you may ask how to install OXCE on Linux, I guess.

I was able to install openxcom extended on the steamdeck using the windows auto installer.  I havent tried xcom files or piratez yet but if openxcom extended works, im sure they will as well. 

Essentially i followed the steps located here https://www.reddit.com/r/Xcom/comments/w7118v/modding_xcom_ew_with_long_war_on_steam_deck/

but instead of using the long war installer for XCom:EU, i used the windows installer for openxcom extended.  Worked like a charm.

In a nutshell, the steps are...

1. download the windows based .exe installer
2. add the .exe installer to your steam library as a non steam game ( while in desktop mode )
3. set forced compatibility to Proton 7.0-4
3. run the newly added installer using steam's 'play' button.
