Now that Xbox gamepass supports streaming games via browser, and the price of Shadow is increasing / standardizing, I think it’s fair to bring up the request to get a browser-capable version of Shadow so we can play on any compliant device with a web browser. Notably, I want this feature so I can play Shadow in my Tesla.
Both me and my roomie are Shadow users, but we’ve both run into an issue. Whenever he loads up games like Valheim or 7 Days to Die, the video does not seem to connect with the game. As in the game will load but the mouse appears locked behind the game window as far as rotating the camera goes, but click will still perform whatever action it’s supposed to in whichever game. Example, in Valhiem right clicking is guarding and left clicking is attacking. Both of which still work but sliding the mouse from one side of the mousepad to the other will not make the camera rotate around you. All options for the game and steam were exhausted in attempting to fix this and it’s been suggested at this point by mutual friends that it may be an issue with shadow.
I'm looking at testing shadow to see if it's going to be suitable for what I need. I'm either going to buy a sub £200 Chromebook or a refurbed windows 10 laptop Which do people think would be better My connection is more than up to the job according to what's written on the shadow website but I want to try it out before investing in a better rig
So you’re trying to connect your controller to your Shadow but can’t seem to figure out how? Here are some links to popular controllers we support, and how to connect them. How to connect a controller (Xbox, PS4, Nintendo and other controllers) We also have another post here that you might like! There are a ton of devices that can be supported by Shadow. For example, here are a few uncommon accessories that the community tested out and that worked: 8Bitdo SF30 Pro Controller, HOTAS, Thrustmaster T150, and even the iPega 9023 Gamepad! You can help others by posting about your favorite accessories or asking questions! Be sure to check out our ‘How to post’ topic in our “Getting Started” category.
I have real issues when trying to use an xbox controller for elite dangerous over shadow from a Windows 10 laptop. Controller works fine in all other games, is recognised by shadow and can control steam big picture. I've tried running the game from big picture, changing all the general controller settings still no joy. The only thing that gets it working is restarting shadow over and over, and then it seems totally random when the controller is recognised in game. Anyone else have this issue with elite dangerous in particular? Do I need to connect the controller in a certain order or something? (Ps the Controller works on nvidia now for elite dangerous, which is what I have to resort too of I can't be bothered to restart loads! Booo ) Everything else is great though and shadow is the best thing since bannas came in bunches.
Hi all! I was wondering if usb connections were being worked on for the iPad version of Shadow. Since the TestFlight version has full keyboard support, maybe usb connections is next along with mouse support? That would be huge. Although I understand if it’s really hard to program it. What do you guys think?
I too have a Tizen Samsung smart 4k UHD TV and I mean it's not hard for me to plug in my laptop and just boot shadow and still use my TV specs by putting it in game mode at 60 refresh rate at 1920 1080p fluidly but in the terms of having a " smart " TV, it's app developer community is not popular, tho pretty powerful one, amount of apps for it is pitiful and that compatibility I know is there because there's many apps on the app store just seems that nobody's even tried to develop one that actually does anything remotely. other than watch and or """stream"""" Netflix, Amazon, Disney blah blah. No games, so that being said I think it would be pretty revolutionary for tizen OS to have a shadow OS, which would completely make my huge pretty dumb smart TV a smart gaming pctv all in one without the necessity of my laptop through HDMI
When I boot up Shadow on my iPad, I generally have to make my iPad forget my DS4, re-pair, then boot Shadow and it works famously with Warzone and other games. But when I play DayZ on the same session, suddenly the controller doesn’t register anymore. Should I assume that it is game related rather than shadow related? The controller shows in steam, but it doesn’t do anything to the windowed game right above it.
Shadow is indeed worth buying. From my 1 year experience I've only had one issue. But when I contacted them, they replied within an hour or two and fixed it. I use it to stream, edit videos, and play video games. I have never got an fps drop nor lagging issues. So is it worth buying? Yes.
Hi, just wondering if anyone is using a graphics display monitor with shadow and experiencing problems with certain drawing programs. I’m using an Huion Kamvas as my only screen and Shadow recognises my pen as a cursor but as soon as I touch the screen inside photoshop or Illustrator it minimises the screen and kicks me back to the desktop. It’s weird because the pen works fine as a mouse outside of Ps and Ai, just doesn’t work within these programs (which is what I signed up to Shadow for). Anyone else had this problem and managed to find a workaround?

Apologies if this is the wrong Section. Scenario:Wired Afterglow xBox 360 Controller with Samsung s10e (Android 10) Manufacturer and 3rd Party OTGResult:R-Stick loses control of the Camera and/or does not translate Gamepad Controls from In-game SettingsSummary:Due to "Technology", the easy answer is xBox One Controller...if you can find one. (My order was cancelled due to no stock)I personally have a Moga Pro that works, but the updated Version is supposed to work with Android and Windows 10.*DisclaimerI don't work for any of the companies mentioned and have not tested the updated Moga controller. Hope this helps👊🏾
I have cox gigablast. I hit at least 350MBps on WiFi and I hit around 600+ on eathernet. Running on an HP Envy with windows 10. I have no issues playing games like cyberpunk 2077 through steam, but I have issues with other platforms. I recently got ubisoft+ and when trying games like watchdogs legion or farcry 5 I have video stutter. It makes it unplayable. I've dropped my bandwidth allocation to 15-20MBps through shadow and that helps some what. Though that makes my experience terrible with a blury image. I've tried any settings I could find, including dropping the graphic quality in these games and it doesn't seem to help. I feel running CP2077 on med-high graphics and it working should show it could handle FarCry 5 no problem on low settings. If any one has any idea what I'm doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.
