When I play phasmophobia using the ShadowVR app my controllers are near my feet and I can't change their position, only their rotation. When I press the menu button on the oculus it shows the controllers are in the correct position, but the game won't accept it. When I tried this game on virtual desktop I didn't have this issue but virtual desktop has proven to be unreliable when connecting to a pc so I would like to be able to do it through shadowVR. Has anyone else had this issue or know of a fix for it?
So I’ve tried to play SkyrimVR and Boneworks on ShadowVR. Initially thought it might have been the Skyrim or connection issue since my controllers kept working weirdly.But today I downloaded boneworks and the controllers completely don’t work. Tried to use a different controller binding for the game as how others fixed their controllers on plutosphere but still nothing. The controllers are stuck and also my field of view is terribly limited. When I move my head around rapidly, I could see the black spots at the corner of my eye. Not sure if anyone has these issues as well. Quite disappointed as I had high hopes. I’ll be trying with VD and shadow PC next time but if anyone know how to fix this, it would be great.
I recently discovered Oculus Quest 2 systems have hand tracking available out of the box, but upon trying to launch Shadow VR, it forces me to switch to controller.Is there a way around this?If not, is it a planned feature Shadow VR will have as it develops?Thank you for your time.Madeline (HoneybeeSorceress)
Hello, so I tried playing shadow vr today and it worked but I realized I was on the wrong steam account so I switched the steam account and clicked on start steam vr again and it got hung on Starting Steam VR Services and just sat there. I dont know what to do I have been troubleshooting for hours.
My Shadow Vr app hangs and stops responding anytime I try to start shadow Vr. Initially I believe I had an older version installed up until yesterday, which when I tried to start shadow Vr and play it would just say it was updating, load from zero to 100, and then go back to zero and repeat. Is there anything I can do?
Hi All, I’m relatively new to Shadow VR + Quest 2-- I've got my setup working well with a few things, like HL: Alyx and Google Earth. I've been trying to make Elite Dangerous work, but anything I try I get zero control response from the controllers. The only thing I can do is bring up the SteamVR menu and quit. It starts up with a regular menu, but I can’t select anything or do anything. I got it in game once by starting in 2d and switching to VR, but again, zero control response through the touch controllers. Also worth noting that I get similar (lack of) response using the ShadowVR app and Virtual Desktop, despite a few attempts at restarting and installing everything from scratch.
Hey guys, Got my Shadow this weekend. Installed Steam, Steam VR, updated drivers using Nvidia experience. When I would start Steam and SteamVR, it would pop up saying something to the effect of the headset was ready to use. I don’t recall having to do anything extra to get it to that stage. Everything was working great using the Shadow app on Quest 2. Suddenly today, I try to launch ShadowVR on the Quest and it hangs on “Starting VR service.” That’s when I notice that Steam VR says “Please plug in your VR headset” now. I wanted to try just re-installing Steam and SteamVR but that was being a little goofy. So, to be on the safe side I decided to just reset my whole Shadow and do the entire process over again. Unfortunately, I still can’t get SteamVR back to the point where it’s recognizing the headset. I tried installing the SteamVR beta but no dice. I also tried installing the Oculus app to see if that would somehow help. Is there some sort of key step that I accidentally did the first
I want to congratulate Shadow team. Shadow VR works really great. It’s impressive how Shadow VR has evolved on time. I hope you don't stop developing this absolutely great technology.I think it would be useful to create a guide for new users on how to take all advantage of Shadow VR.I have a question, how can we use a steering wheel, a joystick or a gamepad throug Shadow VR? for example to use a steering wheel in Asseto Corsa at the same time I use VR.Thanks, and please continue this great job!!!
Hello fellow ShadowVRers !Here is the situation : I’ve got Shadow VR working with my Quest 2, now I’d like to be able to play Elite Dangerous … the thing is I need my HOTAS controller in Shadow VR.First thing I tried was to connect through my local PC with the standard Shadow app in order to get the USB forwarding, but of course only one client connexion is allowed, so obviously when I tried to connect through Shadow VR I got kicked out from the PC app and lost USB forwarding.Next I figured I could manually forward some USB devices to my Shadow using some kind of software (which one ?), so I did setup a VPN client to connect my Shadow PC to my local network. Stupid me. Note for later: never *ever* install a Wireguard client on Shadow PC, now I’ve lost connexion and I need to reset to factory settings. Nevertheless maybe a solution using SSH forwarding.So here is my question : is there (or will there be) some standard easy way I did not think of to connect local USB devices to the Shado
Hello, I recently got a quest 2 and managed to get steamvr working on it by sideloading the shadow pc beta app with sidequest. It's very cool and working pretty well at the moment, but I have a kat walk c (omni directional treadmill) coming in a month or so and can't seem to find any advice on how to set it up with a shadow pc. Has anyone managed this or have an idea how it could work? Thanks for your help!
New to shadow Been trying to get shadow VR to play cars 2. The streaming is great but I have no controls. Won't pick up my g920 (shadow pics it up no problem on normal mode). Anyone have the same issues? Using VD is just too laggy to be enjoyable..not sure what I'm doing wrong. It seems that shadow VR streams directly to the quest and don't go thru the PC so it can't see controls or usb accessoires.. hope someone has a fix. Thanks
So I used to use this app to play Iron Rebellion, which used to function properly. A little bit ago I loaded up this app for the first time in a while only to find out when I play Iron Rebellion, the virtual in game hands are stuck in a position under the menu options and I can't lift them, making it so I can't select menu options. This game USED to work but now it broke for no reason and I have to say I'm EXTREMELY DISSAPPOINTED as now I don't know what games of mine may just stop working tomorrow. :/
I had this problem on 2 different shadow configurations where I couldn’t manage my password using netplwiz.This is not convenient for VR as you might know, and I have never saw anyone fixing this problem so I just wanted to show this fix I found, because I realy think it should have been added to the tutorial. So some people are able see the checkbox when they op netplwiz:But some other people newer configurations don’t see that. The fix I found was opening Registry Editor: Then paste “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device” in the top bar: Dubbleclicking “DevicePassword...” and changing the value form “2” to “0”: At last, open “netplwiz” (again): Now the checkbox will appear: I would hope this could help some people out.source: [Fix] “Users Must Enter a User Name and Password to Use This Computer” Checkbox Missing in Windows 10 – AskVG
At the 0:34 second mark of the Shadow Beta YouTube video, right after it shows how to install Steam, it shows a slide that says "Use the 'Stay Connected to Steam' Option".I do not understand what this is in reference to and I cannot find it in Steam Settings, do I need to reinstall Steam and all my applications to see this option?I currently have an issue where I have to log in to Steam every time I start Shadow and it’s difficult to do so in VR, does this step rectify that issue?Any help would be appreciated :)
When I got my Quest I tried the VR Alpha and was disappointed. The connection was a buggy lottery and even when it did connect the terrible vomit inducing jitter made it unusable. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be that Alpha.Having tried the Beta, it works flawlessly! I can pop my Quest on and be in Steam VR just by opening the app. If you have a Quest (and a strong internet connection) Shadow gives you wireless PC quality VR.The only thing missing now is Xbox controller support for games that need it.
Black screen, Shadow unrecoverable when switching back and forth between VR client and Desktop client
Issue/Describe the bugWhen switching back and forth between Shadow VR and Shadow 2D Desktop it can become unrecoverable due to a black screen and invisible mouse cursor. Version:Beta v. 3.7.6 Steps to Reproduce:Use Shadow with Desktop Used MacOS client but may replicate in any Desktop client Display settings were 1920x1080 @ 100% Connect to Shadow using VR Beta 3.7.6 Using Quest 2 Observe that SteamVR and gameplay works as intended Performance within the game (Arizona Sunshine PC version) was excellent, even though it was through an extender base station of a 2xEero setup Quit Shadow VR Reopen Shadow on Desktop Observe that Display settings is now 3840x2160 @ 200% Not technically honouring the spirit of a 1920x1080 @ 100% monitor even though it is technically accurate Manually change the Windows display settings of Shadow back to 1920x1080 @ 100% Observe Desktop experience works as expected Retry to connect to Shadow VR Beta Observe Updating halts at 100% for up to 10 minutes Obs
Just wanted to say the day I decided to set up my Quest 2 with Shadow was the day I saw the “Beta” version had been posted to Sidequest alongside the Alpha, so I went for it and was blown away.Once Shadow VR will be a quick install from the Quest Store and a simple login with your credentials it’ll be a game-changer. My SteamVR copy of Arizona Sunshine installed lightning fast and booted flawless with no lag or diminished image quality (and this was through an Eero wireless repeater into a larger room).Only issue I had with it was quitting, I’m not sure if it crashed the machine or I selected the wrong option and closed out of Shadow by mistake but it was jarring; that being said I’m looking forward to jumping back in this weekend for some extended play time!
Hey everyone, have had my Shadow for a bit over a week now and getting my Oculus Quest 2 setup has been a nightmare! Finally got it running a game and the graphics were terrible!I haven't been able to port all my games over to download them. I'm still new to VR so I'm hoping it's because I'm still in my learning phase. But holy crap it's been frustrating!
