Trying to run Shadow Linux on Chromebook
Running Shadow (Ubuntu) on ChromeOS. So far, so good. This is going to be an experiment that I will do on my spare time, but so far, this is my result.I managed to get the Shadow.AppImage after a few trials and error. The mouse is working properly (you have to lock it) and works slightly better than the Android App as it recognize the input from the mouse better than the Android app and it works at native speeds. Can’t seem to get the start button to work, but it is a first run. I’ll have more to say on this later.
Blender 3D rendering
I had my first experience in attempt to render a high resolution single image for a world map and was cut off. The image was being rendered in the Eevee engine and it said it was going to take about 38 minutes. I understand that if a user is idle that you turn them off to save resources. However I was actually using Shadow for the reason why I signed up for it in the first place. My original attitude of satisfaction of this service has vanished.
Doom Eternal on Shadow Boost asking to upgrade Quadro Drivers
Hi All, Started playing Doom Eternal on my Shadow Boost and loving it! But recently when launching it comes up with a window asking me to upgrade my Nvidia Quadro drivers up too the most up to date ones. Says I have an older version installed. I thought Shadow kept the drivers up to date normally (Yes I have that option checked to auto update Windows and Graphics Drivers) So wondering, should I update them manually? Doom Eternal runs without issues other than the box asking to either upgrade or run anyway.
Android flickering screen
I have put up with the shortcomings as far as using it on the Chromebook. The keys not binding, my inability to use shortcuts, the slow mouse at times that requires me to readjust, the useless scroll button, and I can’t use touch properly. But now, since the latest update, it’s flickering at times, making Shadow a paying service that I can’t use properly on a Chromebook, the main reason I got the Chromebook. So, is there some way that this is going to get fixed?Bad enough that Chromebooks are hardly supported, even though there’s a big message about it in the updates.
Recommended a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse
Hi all, Please can you recommend a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse for the Shadow Ghost? Do they work by connecting to the Shadow Ghost box directly or via a usb dongles? Are you able to pair keyboard, mouse and controller via Bluetooth at the same time? Thanks Will
[SUGGESTION] Shadow App on Xbox!
😀 Will Shadow ever consider developing an app for Xbox? This has come across my mind a lot, and it would actually be the perfect solution for me. I use my Xbox Series X on my desk and have it connected to my monitor/keyboard/mouse for gaming. If I could run Shadow PC on it, then it becomes a full gaming PC for me as well! That would save me the $$$ to buy another gaming PC and also save the space on my desk. Will this be a dream come true one day, or will this stay as a dream forever? 😂
Is there a roadmap for hardware upgrades?
Seeing Ultra and Infinite activations pushed back again. I am concerned that current hardware will soon become obsolete while customers wait for Blade to play catchup again for 6 months? A year? So my question is, is there a roadmap with clear deadlines and planned hardware upgrade scheme? Can we expect our service to keep up with the software demands in six months or a year? Thank you for your time and concern regarding this matter.
🤩 My dream setup: Raspberry Pi booting straight to Shadow Power's cloud PC. Any update on a native Raspberry client / OS?
Hi, I’m a long term Shadow user, last year I got super excited when Shadow announced an official roadmap item that aimed to support Raspberry Pi devices.Microsoft also announced recently that they are working on a feature that would let your computer boot straight to their cloud PC. Was wondering where the Shadow team got to as has been extremely quiet on this topic?My dream setup: I’d be keen to use the latest Raspberry Pi to replace my trusty (but aging) Shadow Ghost so I can finally run dual 4k monitors from one single thin client. Raspberry Pi would also enable many folks to lower the barrier to entry for affordable, fanless machines - once you’ve tried fanless pcs there’s no going back. The ability to have a Raspberry Pi OS booting straight to my Shadow (like what I can do on Ghost) would be a slick set-up. Don’t want to faff with booting Raspbian and later on having to load another app - am looking for a seamless / native experience. Could mount the Raspberry Pi behind the mon

I've been using Windows 11 for months, works find
Hi everyone, I know that Windows 11 isn’t officially supported by Shadow yet but I installed it months ago and my Shadow seems to be working just fine since then, in fact I’d say that most of the time it’s been working better than with Windows 10.Any thoughts?
Hey All - This is my first post, but I didn’t see this being discussed yet. Has anyone been playing Valheim on Shadow? I have had Shadow for 6 months or so, and overall its been a fantastic service and games play wonderfully. However Valheim has had mediocre performance. Admittedly I ussually play on 4K resolution (i have base level Shadow). However dropping down to 1080p has not made much of a difference. I am usually getting around 30 FPS. If I drop all settings to absolute minimum with lower resolution i can get maybe 50 FPS. It’s not an overly graphical game, and I dont see the computer system manager spiking too much.Anyone else had similiar experience? Any tips to increase the FPS?
Intel HD 4400 Graphics finally usable on Linux
Integrated Intel HD 4400 Graphics hardware until now was unusable on Linux, see https://github.com/NicolasGuilloux/blade-shadow-beta/issues/12 or https://blade-de.zendesk.com/hc/de/articles/360011067120-Bekannte-Fehler-im-Linux-Client#h_01EC5DX63WJMSNG7FCXRK10ECB.This still is not solved with client 3.7.5, but at least you can now switch to the new software rendering, which imo is a very acceptable workaround. Finally I can use my old HP Probook 430 G1.Regards, Heinz
