When will activations for shadow ultra begin in Paris datacentres? Many of us have been waiting for over a year now and have been left in the dark of when we would be activated. We were told beginning of 2021 however we are now 8 days in with zero news. Please keep in mind its now the third or fourth time we have been told an activation date in which you could never meet and its beginning to become a bit of a joke.
Anybody having any success with the new iPad ios14 with respect to true mouse support? I am embarking on a grand experiment to level a character from 1 to max level on WoW using my iPad.One frustration is that Shadow currently does not have a persistent mouse cursor, preventing any mouseover function.Thanks in advance.
Hello. I’ve been playing games on SteamVR (like Half Life Alex) from your Oculus Shadow App without any problem, but I’m having some troubles with Star Wars Squadron. I start up the game and I’m stuck at the main menu, because the Oculus Quest 2 controllers doesn’t seem to work. Anyone can help with this? I tried playing with the controller options in SteamVR but without results. Is it possibile to play Squadrons VR using Shadow? Thank you very much.
Just got an email today stating that my Shadow Ultra account is being downgraded to Shadow Boost account by May 20th, this is unacceptable! I need either Shadow Ultra or Shadow Iifinity or this service is not worth the subscription to!!
So i just thought I would write up my thoughts on the Shadow experience that I’ve had since getting my activation 2 weeks ago. Shadow really is a great idea, and it works, I can log on to any compatible device and access a fully functioning computer on the go, I genuinely have to take a step back and realise wow so this is the future, and the download speeds are mind blowing. Saying that, although it works, I don’t think it works well, not yet anyway, i think this kind of technology is still several years off where it needs to be. I can really feel the mouse latency even at 18ms and I’m by no means a professional/competitive gamer. I’ve had issues with screen buffering (kind of going fuzzy and coming back again) audio stuttering, loss of stable connection on 5Ghz WiFi. I have a printer hooked up to my network and as of now cant see a way i can link that to shadow. I also think the boost specs are a little behind (I did mention this in another post), specifically 12GB RAM, I imagine
Will it play: Yes What the minimum package required: Boost $14.99/month Any FPS issue: No most issues are servers side related due to game’s Alpha state Hard Drive Space Used: 75GB [live] Voice Functional: Yes, minor delay but fine. Device Functional: PC, [Need Iphone Confirm] [Need Android Confirm] [Need Chromebook “Android-Emulation” Confirm] [Need Chromebook “Linux-Emulation” Confirm] [Need Linux Confirm] [Need Mac Confirm] [Need Smart TV Confirm] Issue: Sometime when switching between your shadow and you actual device you get stuck in a rotating camera action that sometime doesn’t stop until you leave game entirely. If your a member of the PTU/ other servers you'll need more hard drive space than what Boost can provides as it 75GB for each folder. The alpha state of the game makes it hard to determine if it SC or the Shadow [but its mostly SC that is the issues]
Edit: Please ignore this lol, I completely neglected the fact that the first 256gb is an SSD. That said, Star Citizen is really struggling in boost, hopefully Ultra will remedy this. Hello, I’m sure of ya’ll know Star Citizen one way or another. It’s currently struggling a lot with shadow due to the lack of SSD option for Shadow. Even if it cost an extra $7, I wouldn’t mind paying it for a 250gb SSD option. Please shadow, do it! Best regards,
I’m using a very good ethernet connection but when I get on shadow still sometimes has a very high latency, making it very hard for me to play games like Call of Duty or Forza. So far it seems that it’s been getting better over time, just wondering if anyone has a fix for this problem that might help. Thanks
I love the witcher 3: Wild hunt and it was one of the games I bought shadow for.Now I can't install it because of the following error message: Disk Access Error occurred during installation.U an afraid it is because of shadow…What can I do to fix this?
This question was probably asked a few different times, however. This is something I wondered for a while, so I’d like to know, what games do you play the most and since there are some games that have problems running on the Shadow, what games have you had problems with so far? I play a few different games, alternating between these every so often. I play Half Life: Alyx, Escape from Tarkov, Star Citizen, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Apex Legends, Beat Saber and a few others.
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!
Overall the Shadow PC running on my Nvidia Shield using the Shadow App works pretty well. I use Steam for my games and occasionally I run into a problem after launching the game in Steam it connects to the games company and has a separate launch window that requires a mouse input to click the ‘Play’ button. For example, I tried to launch Elite Dangerous but after clicking play in Steam, a separate Frontier Developments window pops up and wants me to click ‘Play’ to start the game. The problem is using the Nvidia shield with a game controller there is no way to click the play button as none of the buttons or joysticks mimic a mouse movement. So my question is how do I play these types of games using Shadow PC and Nvidia Shield. About half my games are like this and the others just come up.
Hi, I really like Shadow so far and as I’m working towards the best settings for my environment thoroughly enjoy the service. However, one thing that I find pretty annoying is the long load times of my games. I play a lot of Total War and those games frequently have to load a lot of data and it seems that Shadow does not have typical SSD performance, even from a ‘budget’ SSD drive perspective. Am I doing something wrong?
I cant even run GTA V on max settings in 1080p@60fps. If I crank it up to 1080 max im lucky if I average 45 and it dips to the 30’s…. Sometimes I seem to get a machine that can boost those numbers a little but thats it. Meanwhile my 1660 TI is significantly better because its not bottlenecked….Whats the point of advertising 1080 TI’s if they are useless in these devices…. Not to mention I cant run shadow in full screen or else I get a lot of stuttering and lag so im stuck with borders on both sides and the shadow screen’s window bar on the top of the screen.
Recently I joined the Shadow community with hope of playing online games such as Call of Duty Modern Warefare (COD MW) with my friends. I have been experiencing the worse game play ever during even practice mode. My shooter will not follow mouse and will delay the movement so much that it is impossible to play. The menus response is great, but actual gameplay is bad.So far I’ve tried optimizing my settings and the gameplay is still delayed. I understand that giving out personal information is a no, no, but I live in Columbus, Ohio and I’m connected to the Chicago data center. My bandwidth is low and the latency has increased from 20-30ms from last week to 70-80ms this week.When it is convenient, would it be possible for anyone to give some advice?Thank You,TwinsOfQuietus
I am trying to decide which tier is better for me. I have an old laptop that doesn’t support 4K. If I had the Infinite tier that would be considered a waste since I can’t get 4K anyways? In that case Ultra would be the best for me? I want to play games at the max settings at 60 fps.
Hi Guys maybe someone can help me… I can´t join a friends warzone party (he is on Xbox i´m on shadow).His NAT-Type is “open”. He can join my party but as soon i want to start the game he got kicked out… Maybe someone had the same issue - and how can i change my nat type to open on my shadow (maybe that helps) thx a lot J
I wanted to add this as with the new tiers for Shadow being largely pushed back till sometime next year it leaves many of us with the current storage (256 GB).Personally I’d argue that this amount of storage isn’t marketable for a Gaming PC now or in the future. Far too many of the games being released now and upcoming can easily exceed 60 GB in size alone. This leaves little space for more than 2 or 3 games in total at any one time. To say nothing of DLC, Modding or Steam Workshop content. GTA, Master Chief Collection (Halo) and Flight Simulator are examples of this trend.I myself also use my Shadow to do work, watch content and use other software. All of this on 256 GB? Means making sacrifices…I’ve added a simple poll to this topic and I hope as many people as possible will take part. I really think Shadow needs to re-evaluate their Storage needs, and tiers to take current gaming trends into account. The specs of the tiers are nice but the storage is what most gamer’s are going to no
