When you say "big picture mode", I understand what i3 calls fullscreen mode
Does it work for you simply to switch to full screen after game launch?

I think I remember seeing some hooks that permit you to match certain
actions to certain events.  I can't find the documentation now, but maybe
someone else can fill in.  So I think you can express "when this type of
window maps, I'd like this action (toggle fullscreen) to happen".  (Or
maybe I'm thinking of workspace assignment
and I'm wrong.)

You probably meant to point to this:

I love i3 but this confuse me a while.
I's possible to enter big picture mode with fullscreen enable, but
after launching game i3 won't focus to the new window but stay.
Is there any config or workaround that could provide the best
experience for big picture mode on i3?

As far as I understand, (and I don’t know what you mean by big picture
mode, so I’ll just assume you mean fullscreen mode) you are trying
to launch a program with a fullscreen window while running another
program, which already has a fullscreen window. By default i3 prevents
that, as usually when you make a window fullscreen, this means you want
to completely focus on it, and anything that tries to steal that focus
is inhibited. However, this behaviour can be changed. For details, see:

Hi all,

Liang is talking about "Steam Big Picture Mode" which is a <hipster accent> 10-foot interface for the Steam digital distribution, DRM, multiplayer and social networking platform </hipster accent>. Sorry, I'm trying to be funny not patronising.

The Big Picture Mode starts in i3's fullscreen mode but launches new windows for games/software. Liang's (and my) desire would seem to be for these new windows to go fullscreen in front of the Big Picture UI.

Userguide Section 4.20 does not seem to provide an option for the above behaviour and I haven't thought of a smart way to workaround this.
