USB drivers on macOS MontereyFixed in Alpha
I updated to macOS Monterey (12.0.1) and when I launched the shadow client for the first time after that, I’ve been welcome by an error message saying that the USB drivers were broken and was given the choice to repair or uninstall them. The repair failed, so I uninstalled them but the reinstall fails too.
Starting today (July 27th, 2021), my mouse 4 and 5 buttons stopped working on my shadow. (These are the two thumb buttons on the left side of the mouse.) I have experienced no other issues and these buttons have been working fine for the last year.I am using the Linux Ubuntu App. I have replicated the same issue on two separate computers running Ubuntu 18.04. On both computers, I have tried two different mice on both the Official and Beta Shadow Apps. In all instances, the buttons continue to work fine on my local computers but are no longer recognized by my Shadow. I have tried the buttons in multiple Shadow programs with no success. The other mouse buttons still function (left click, right click, middle mouse click, middle mouse scroll).Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Application type: Ubuntu Linux Shadow Client Version: Official and Beta Local device CPU: Intel© Core™ i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz × 4 Local device GPU: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrat
Issue/Describe the bugThe Apple service “VTDecoderXPCService” is using more and more memory when using Shadow for extended periods of time. I’m encountering this problem only on the shadow app so I thought it’s a good idea to submit a bug to you.Applications/Devices: Shadow App on a MacBook Pro 2021 (M1 - macOS 12.1). I’m using Wi-Fi most of the time.Versions:I’m using the universal app. Launcher v4.28.9. & Client : v3.14.6.Steps to Reproduce:Open Activity Monitor and check “VTDecoderXPCService” memory. Launch the Shadow and use it for a certain period of time. VTDecoderXPCService memory usage is growing up.Additional NotesDisabling (or enabling) Metal in the launcher does not have an effect. Restarting the stream every 1 or 2 hours is my workaround for now. Otherwise, the stream crashed or macOS ask the user to free RAM. Memory usage seems to increase much faster with a bad connection and a lot of packet loss. Unfortunately, I don’t have a rock-solid connection overall so I can’t

Describe the bug (required) Upon upgrade to iPad OS 15, the scrollwheel of the Logitech bluetooth mouse connected to the iPad (12.9” Pro) does not work. It had worked prior to iPad OS 15. It also works on the MacOS client. The Windows Shadow system does not register the scrollwheel scroll input however it does recognize the click as Mouse 3. The scrollwheel is established as working in the iPad OS itself. In addition, since this update, Mouse 4 does not register being held down, only a single click. The scrollwheel should be supported and it’s inputs registered in the default behaviors of the Windows system, and should react appropriately in-game (tested it in Guild Wars 2). The mouse buttons 4-5 should recognize being held down until released. Steps to reproduce the bug (required) I tried the same mouse on the MacOS system and it registered the clicks in the desktop environment. I restarted shadow, the mouse and the iPad OS. The bug occurs 100% of the time on iPad OS/iOS 15

ShadowPC freezes for no reasonUnder Review
My screen keeps freezing while using the ShadowPC around every 30 seconds. The audio still works and my input is still detected. What should happen is that the audio and video should be synced and the video should be working at the same frame rate that is displayed in the quick menu Start Shadow and enter any game. Play the game at any bandwidth. Screen Freezes MacOS official Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9. Additional Notes: The drivers on the Shadow computer are 461.40. Problem occurs on any bit rate and Streaming Preferences. Hello. Recently, my ShadowPC has been freezing for unknown reasons. I run Shadow on my MacBook Air from 2017 which has been working well with it until just recently. I have a consistent 70 mbps download speed and 15 mbps upload speed on my local 5G network. The issue occurs at any bitrate I use. I play on “Prefer Speed” but whenever I switch to “Prefer Reliability,” I get massive frame drops. On the ShadowPC, I am running 461.40 and I believe that this is

This is a feature that is already available in Microsoft Remote Desktop for iPad and it works very well.There are two modes for touch input, and you can switch between modes at any time: Mode 1: Use touch to click on anything on the screen, so for example in this scenario:Right click a file and delete it: Touch on the file with hold, once context menu shows up, touch on delete.Mode 2: Use touch to interact with mouse cursor which always shows in the screen. So in this scenario:Right click a file and delete it: Drag one finger across the screen to simulate mouse movement until the cursor reaches the file you need to delete, then press and depress instantly with two fingers (can be done anywhere in the screen as your touch won’t move the cursor away from the file). Finally drag one finger so the cursor moves to the delete option in the context menu, then touch with one finger to simulate click on delete. Mode 2 is much more useful on iPad when you are not using physical input devices bec
Allow us to change specific NVidia control panel settings permanently to fix stuttering issues (VSync on)New
I’ve a 360hz monitor and got some problems recently, since i tried heavier games with the new Power Upgrade. Many games are choppy / stutter alot for me. By default, VSync is disabled via NVidia control panel and is also disabled again after every boot.But for my configuration, i need VSync on to get a stable framerate.My current configuration is:Windows 11, 360hz using Shadow App. 1920x1080 with 60FPS as Streaming Resolution I’m using Nvidia’s frame capping feature to limit FPS to 60FPS on Shadow machine I’m using “VSync on” via Nvidia control panel on Shadow machineWith this, i was finally able to get a fluid camera panning.I found an older topic about this on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/eciubf/comment/fbd5i2y/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3So i’m not the only one with this issue. Maybe for some, VSync off and FPS uncapped is working fine, but for me, not.We need an option to disable the NVidia configuration reset on every boot.I’ve recor
I have done some checking and there have been other conversations on this. But can shadow as a company please reconsider its automatic shutdown process. This is now bordering on useless i went away to get dinner and came back to being shut down. I left it doing a download… it shutdown.. i left it converting a video file.. gues what it shut down. Now that the price has been doubles surely that should buy us a better timeout. If you did this on an office system you would not be kept as a vendor so why should we put up with it.Yes we get that some people start sessions then just leave them, but to me that is what it is for, yes it may impact others but there should be allowances for that in your provisioning. If we sign in on a set day it should work for that day, with a reset that night to release it. Then again the next day and so on, a half hour or less timout in current times is just bad. Please do a survey, ask some quetsions of your users.. and make it better. If this keeps up i for

Describe the bug (required) Upon pressing the media key “next” on my keyboard shadow will consistently skip media with little to no stop (such as YouTube Playlists, Spotify songs, etc)… I can confirm that this is NOT an issue with my actual keyboard as I tested using the key on several occasions on my host PC and did not encounter any issues… This bug has also been present since day one of me using Shadow, I just haven’t got around to reporting this bug until now. I am also not the only Shadow user that has this bug… This is most likely an issue with how Shadow handles input with this key. Screenshot of the media key “next”: Gif of the bug behavior: edit: Shadow’s forum compression made the gif a little messed up, go here for original image: https://i.imgur.com/ZYN1dcA.gif Bug Behavior: Skips media constantly. Expected Behavior: Skipping the media one time per key press. Steps to reproduce the bug (required) Provide explicit step-by-step actions to re-create the bug. 1. O

Performance dropped down for the past 2 weeksUnder Review
[MAY BE RELATED TO] Introduction It has been around 2 weeks now that my Shadow App heat up my computer every time I use it at least a few minutes… It’s not just getting hot, it’s also making some heavy noises, it’s the first time that my computer seems to be working this hard in several years. When this happens, it’s getting hot and making some noise, but it also affects my entire computer. Everything seems slow. If I reduce the shadow app (not close) and switch to another (going on discord for example), it feels like my computer is struggling, and running at max 20fps. At first, I didn’t know why my computer was doing that. I noticed that a Windows Update was proposed around this date (I first thought that Microsoft was sabotaging me to force me to update Windows, but then I updated Windows and it did not change anything). Then I noticed that this mostly happened when my computer was charging, so I thought that my charger had a problem. But when I closed all my app, the computer cal
