Hello #TeamShadow, 

You dreamed about it, so did we, therefore we worked like never before to make this dream come true... yes, the DUAL SCREEN has arrived !!! 


How does it work? 

Open your Quick Menu (Win+Alt+O or option+command+O) and activate it from within the "Display" tab.


💡 Be careful, twice as many screens, needs twice as many ressources!

If your connection is limited to 40 mbps for example, a quality of 20 mbps will be applied to each screen. Twice as many screens also means twice as much decoding. If your computer has trouble decoding one stream, it will not be able to decode two. We therefore advise you to start with two full HD 1080p screens and increase the number as you go along to test your equipment and your connection.


And that's not all! 

On top of the Dual Screen, we are adding Color Enhancement (4:4:4).

This setting is very CPU intensive for your computer. On some PCs you won't be able to use it, but on the newest ones you have the possibility to activate it in the "Streaming" tab of the Launcher settings. 


New features:

  • Dual screen*!

  • Color enhancement option (4:4:4)

*Refrain from changing your settings while using your Shadow to avoid possible bugs.


  • Several fixes to the automatic screen management

Alongside, we've released a new Launcher 4.26.6, Renderer 3.12.14, Streamer 3.7.10 and Overlay 1.10.5 into our official release candidate for Desktop and Shadow Hardware (Shadow Ghost & Shadow Box).
