OK, So I play State of Decay 2, This game has a permanent death feature for your characters. If I loose connection between my PC and the Cloud server, My game will continue to run when I cant defend myself and possibly loose my game character permanently. Is there a way to set up a “close game” with lost connection? Thank you.
Hello, im using shadow boost for a year now and i can tell u, , they DO NOT offer the same performance as a gtx1080 (not even close) everymonth amsterdam has server issues, the fps never stays at a stable 60 ( no matter the vid settings)they increased the price to more than double what it was, without any benefit for the customer.when support is needed they only respond with some bs that never fixes ur problems, even after wiping the cache and fine tuning the data usage settings this pc still gives the bad performance as my own pc with these specs:Gtx 1060 3gbintel i5 5500K16Gb ram Shadow went full on no mans sky with false promises.
Since I get under 5 FPS in any RTX game and have performance that’s worse than my 2019 gaming PC.Are these PCs actually meant to play anything halfway recent? E.g. Control, or FS2021? Nothing above medium settings and non RTX works for me.If I want that I could have just kept using my PC, at least that doesn’t have a 40 ms input lag from sending data across four state-lines…Just trying to figure out if I’m meant to use it for bitcoin mining and CAD rendering rather than gaming.
New to shadow and not a computer person, I know the basics, I’m trying to set up a good VR set up with my oculus quest and I’m struggling, it’s painfully laggy I can see black lines / wall to my left and right when I turn and it’s unplayable, I had one perfect experience no lag no black lines one evening and won’t go back to that. Oculus Link and Air Link won’t recognise my headset from PC and asks to match networks which I can’t do and have spent hours trying to set it up watching YouTube videos and now have given up and need help. The only reason I got shadow is to do PCVR and I’m unable to. I have 70mb broadband at home normally and 950mb on shadow and it has 5Gz enabled. is it because I can’t match networks?
I recently got a Shadow PC. I had been following Shadow for the past two years from when it first launched, but the upfront cost + contract kept me from trying it out. And while I get a lot of early adopters are unhappy with the changes made to the service now, it was one of the reasons I decided to give Shadow a try… and I’ve decided that I’m going to keep the service so that when my current local pc finally dies, I can move over to the Shadow as my primary PC.My current desktop is a bit better than the Shadow in several respects, but having played several games on it, even playing them on a cheap tablet, I was impressed at the performance and quality. And since Shadow will periodically update the hardware as time goes on, it will eventually equal/surpass my current PC. Sure it won’t ever be a top tier gaming PC, but I’ve never been able to afford one of those anyway. I’ve mostly had machines in the 1300$-1500$ range and it’s always been a punch to the gut when I had to buy one cause
As the title says, I normally play mobile games on my PC. I often have performance issues on my old 2010 computer. I got an email today that shadow is ready. I am very exited by what I see.So I immediately installed bluestacks and nox and I’m trying to run epic seven on shadow. I ran into a problem. First bluestacks - I can’t use more than 1 core because virtualization is disabled.Normally you would go into the bios to enable this. But that doesn’t seem possible through shadow. Is this something the developers need to do on their end for me? edit - and shadow just froze on me when I tried opening both apps. This app is quite expensive so I need this to work at least with 90% efficiency. I get that it may not be perfect, but if there are any issues I need to take care on my end, I’m more than willing to troubleshoot. But if its their end and I can’t do anything about it….. we may have an issue.
Hi everyone!I just got my Shadow Boost activated and the first game I downloaded was Red Dead Redemption 2.I’ve been playing it for quite a while and have been playing around with the Graphics settings but I cannot reach 60fps. Even when I set everything to low, It never reaches 60 FPS which sounds a bit low for Shadow. Also, another stupid question: when setting Graphics for a game, should I always set my Display resolution same as my display or based on the graphic card available? I’m using a 2017 Macbook Pro with a 2560 × 1600 display. I would appreciate if someone would either give advice or confirm that that’s the best I can do with this.
Hi there!I have quest 2 connected using virtual desktop. Virtual desktop is set to 72hz and low resolution. Since I have fifer connection latency isn't a big issue for me. In 72hz mode I get about 50-60ms, but in 120 it's down to 40-50.I tried playing Half Life Alyx and Star Wars Squadrons, both on low settings. HL is almost playable, FPS is 65-70. Using FPSVR I can see gpu is the bottleneck. With Star Wars the fps is around 40-50, so totally unplayable.Has anyone here played any of these successfully? Maybe there’s a specific gaming-oriented driver I need to download or something?
For some reason shadow runs Minecraft just fine as long as I don’t have the fabric installed for my quality of life mods installed. What is it about having this mod installed that kills performance. With just optifine, I can run SEUS PTGI shaders at a solid 60. but install fabric with lithium, and I can’t get above 30 despite not running shaders and a better performance mod
My speeds - https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/d/f458568f-6121-4476-b47c-a200112de526 Yo… I’m so happy right now. Earlier I installed B&S and I was getting 56fps out in the fields at max graphics. During combat, I was getting around 30fps on average when there are a lot of mobs on the screen. This is far better than the 12fps I was getting on my laptop.The gpu shadow uses is the Quadro P5000. I finally have something to compare to. So now I know for B&S at least during combat, I need something stronger to reach at least 45fps during combat. I hope shadow will give us upgrade options in the future.Once I save enough money, I’ll probably grab a gtx 3070 (https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-RTX-3070-vs-Nvidia-Quadro-P5000/4083vsm197331). Once I do, I’ll probably no longer need shadow. But for now, I can finally play this game with good speeds. However, there is something I’m confused about.How come my ping in B&S is far better through shadow than without it? My ping
As the topic title says I am waiting for a big enough war chest to get a respectable gaming rig since my PS4 recently passed away. I played Elite Dangerous almost exclusively on PS and have had my eyes on SC for some years. Im looking to get some info on what to expect with Shadow and what your experiences are. Thanks
Hello, (sorry fot my english i’m french)I’m playing VR PC games via Shadow+ virtual desktop+ oculus quest 1. Some games works fine (half life alyx, no man sky, jet island) but with other games (rush, subnautica...) the oculus quest controller dont seems to be recognise at all or fully recognise . that prevent playing those games.Did someone have way to solve this problem or a liste of games compatible on PC with quest /shadow and virtual desktop? Thanks to the shadower!
Hi. I’m new this weekend to shadow. I’ve got it for vr mainly. I’ve got a oculus quest. So I’ve put virtual desktop on my quest. I’ve put it on my Mac which I can connect to and see my desktop. Do I have to put vd on the shadow? I have already but can’t connect. I’ve also added steam and steam vr to my shadow. Which says please plug in your headset. I’ve tried plugging in but have nothing. Could anyone please give me a hand with what’s what please?jamie
