Issue/Describe the bug
Attempting to play Microsoft flight sim 2020 again on my Shadow but Shadows USB peripheral forwarding decided I wouldn't.
To be clear I tested multiple app versions (beta and normal) but always respected the steps noted in the 'to reproduce' section below. None of these versions allow me to use my USB joystick again.

the spinner keeps on going:



Applications/Devices:
MacOS 10.15.7



Versions:
(normal) Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.8
Beta Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.7


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Shadow is not booted up
  2. Starting the shadow (beta) app
  3. Uninstalling the Shadows USB peripheral drivers
  4. Uninstalling the Shadows (beta) app
  5. Rebooting my Mac
  6. Reinstalling the Shadow (beta) app
  7. Reinstalling Shadows USB peripheral drivers
  8. Connect my USB joystick
  9. Click on the connect button for the USB forwarding for my joystick
  10. On the (normal) Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.8 the spinner keeps on turning and the checkbox mostly doesn't activate. Sometimes it does.
  11. On the Beta Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.7

Hello,

 

A fix has been pushed to the Official stable launcher and you should now be able to use USB Peripherals on MacOS without issues.

For the fix to work, you’ll need to do the following:
1. Uninstall the USB drivers from the Shadow launcher settings menu​​​​​​​
2. Restart your local Mac computer​​​​​​​
3. Re-launch the Shadow app and reinstall the USB drivers again from the settings menu

 

If you’re continuing to have issues with USB Peripherals on MacOS, please ask in Technical Assistance or reach out to support.

Same problem for me since the last version (Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.8).

Unable to use any USB device : Spinner keeps on turning and the checkbox doesn't activate.

 

Datacenter : Chicago

OS : OSX Catalina

Hello,

 

Thank you for reporting this. There is a known issue with USB Peripherals not working on Catalina and older MacOS versions since the last update. It is currently being investigated and worked on, and we’ll update you here when the issue is fixed.

Hey Ike,
 

Indeed I received feedback from the devs to tryout the Alpha version (Alpha Launcher V4.23.0 Client V3.10.1), but no solution there yet to my issue.

Thanks for the follow-up here.


Regards,

Alain
