Enabling nested virtualization for Power Upgrade
Could I kindly ask to enable nested virtualization for Power Upgrades ?That’s a simply and straight forward config change on the host system https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/using-nested-virtualization-in-kvm/ without any real disadvantages for Shadow. Shadow PC could be a really great system for Devs like me that mainly work on Mac or Linux and just need a Windows PC from time to time to do a bit of testing and compiling.But a system that isn’t able to run basic things like WSL 2 or Docker is pretty much worthless as a development system. Despite the nice hardware specs offered by Shadow.
Can i use a 3 screen setup with the Nreal air AR glasses?
So I have a shadow PC, that I mainly use to play games at the moment, but plan on getting into coding and games dev. I also plan on getting the nreal air AR glasses, which are glasses that can connect to a smart phone, and display a 201 inch screen or a number of smaller screens. These glasses are able to display a virtual 3 screen set up, as a beta on windows. But as the shadow PC is not actually natively running on the host device. I'm not sure how it would work, or if it even would work. Can anyone please advise on if this is something you have tested, and if it doesn't work is this something that is coming in the future? Because honestly I think a shadow PC and nreal air glasses is the ultimate combo.
Heavy rain game
I have been trying to play a game called "Heavy rain", and in it you do various movements with the controller. One of them involves pushing the right stick to one side, left or right, it does not matter, and then do a circular motion with it for 90 or 45 degrees. It happens that for some reason 90% of the time, the shadow pc fails to register the movement. Controller seems to work ok when going to the testing gamepad website. Installing the game on my steam deck everything works as it should. I wonder if there are any known incompatibilities between this game and shadow. It is the sort of game I would rather play on the big srceen TV.Does anybody have the same problem? I know it is an old game, but still, quite good I find.Lately I have been having quite a lot of latency issues. I have tried the App on my MAC, on google chromecast TV and with windows. both Windows and chromecast are using wired connection. I must say that form all the 3, chromecast is the best in terms of latency. I wo
Shadow Box to real tinny PC (Linux and Windows)
I read that Shadow PC will stop the Shadow Boxes (the support and I think the production too). So I think a lot of people won't need them anymore. So I propose you to show you how to transform the Shadow Box in a real small desktop PC.If you are interested, let me know and I will make you the tutorial for Linux (easy) and for Windows 10/11 (difficult).I like Shadow and what it offers. This transformation of the Shadow Box is only to prevent it from getting dusty. Since we install Windows or Linux, you will always be able to install the Shadow application and use it "as before". https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/139jicd/shadow_box_to_real_tinny_pc_linux_and_windows/
Ultrawide Splitscreen on Shadow
Hi Guys,im thinking of buying a Samsung Odyssey G9 49" Monitor but i want to split it to two 27" WQHD Screens via the Easy Setting Box Software from Samsung. Do you know if i´ll be able to connect shadow to just one of these? Or will Shadow only see the full 49" Monitor?Thanks in advance
Parsec is infinitely better than the shadow client.
Has less lag, stutters less, gamepads are more responsive. Why do we have to be locked in to using the garbage shadow client? I understand that it has logic to shutdown the guest if it’s not being used but can’t you guys figure out a better way to do that? It’s easy enough to just have shadow client and parsec open at the same time but shadow client interferes with parsecs controller passthrough (which works better) even if I uninstall shadow USB drivers. Why does a controller automatically show up in device manager even if I uninstall the driver for it? This leads to some games not detecting my controller when used with parsec. It’s very frustrating.

[USB Forwarding] Mass storage device compatibility
I have a few questions regarding USB mass storage compatibility and specifications:How do network conditions affect the transport of data? Are there any restrictions on data throughput? What precautions are in place to ensure reliability? (Read/write caching, redundant data transport, etc.)Thanks in advance! :3
Please Provide a Refund. Not as advertised.
I am writing to request a refund for the Shadow PC subscription I recently purchased. I was under the impression that the product was capable of doing everything a traditional PC can do, however, I have found this to not be the case. One of the main issues I have encountered is the automatic log-out after 30 minutes of shutting down the app. This has caused me significant inconvenience as I was under the impression that the program I had started would continue to run even after I had logged off. This is a far cry from the capabilities of a traditional PC and is a clear example of false advertising. Furthermore, I have also been unable to contact customer support due to difficulties logging in and a long, complex process. I have tried multiple times to reach out for assistance with the aforementioned issue, but have been unsuccessful due to the issues I have encountered. Given these issues, I feel that it is only fair that I receive a full refund for my Shadow PC subscription. I hope th

How to turn off screen capture shortcut of controller?
Hi there, I’m running Shadow on my Macbook using a PS5 controller with the additional controller support turned on (emulating an Xbox controller).When running Shadow, if I press and hold the Share button (View button for Xbox controllers), I get a prompt for a screen capture on my Mac. I want to turn this hotkey off since I need to use this button for a game I’m trying to play. Can’t change the key mapping in the game either.I’ve looked around on the internet for a while and I’m pretty sure its a feature within Shadow, not in MacOS or Windows, because I only experience this running Shadow. Any help would be appreciated, hope this is the right place to post this.
Will there ever be an Xbox shadow app.
I am currently wondering if the devs at Shadow would ever be willing to create an Xbox app for Shadow. Right now, both of PC’s are broken :( and trying to use my shadow on my phone is absolutely grueling. If anyone knows any information about this suggestion, please respond in the comments.

I'm curios when it going to be implementedAlso when tick my Wacom Cintiq 16 in Controllers & USB it disappear from my local computer so I should unplug it and repeat the action maybe that why it can't be doneCan you fix it?
Is Body Tracking doable on Shadow VR?

Using on Steam Deck
So I have this issue with my Shadow on Steam Deck. I can get everything loaded and log in using the Ubuntu version since it's Linux based. It loads fine but when the actual video feed from my Shadow shows up it's really red. It looks like infrared from Predator. I've contacted support who advised that other users who have had a similar issue have disabled the rgb10 drivers to make it work. They then gave me a link to a Reddit page ( https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/tsx9b6/shadow_works_great_on_steam_deck/ ) where someone said basically the same thing. The problem I'm having is there is basically zero explanation on how to actually do this so I need some help with how to actually do this. A step by step would be awesome if anyone knows how. I'm sure this would be helpful to many people who have or will get a Steam Deck.
Any future explanation for Chrome / Edge Browsers?
I have a Steam Deck and while Shadow “kinda” works on the Windows side I was wondering if you were planning to have support for the Chrome and Edge browser like GeForce Now, Xbox, etc have? Right now I load those platforms though the Edge browser and they work great. https://play.geforcenow.com/http://xbox.com/play Thank you
