I didn’t get my Shadow activated yet but I was just wondering, when I get it activated should I use it in the BETA version for Windows or the stable version? I’ve read in a couple of places people saying that they had better experience on the BETA version. Like less lag, latency and what not. Plus, if I decided to go with the BETA is it recommended that I use the BETA app on my phone too? I have iOS.
Even though Shadow is VM (Virtual Machine), it's still a physical machine doing Work.Secondary is the Local Machine also using its Resources to stream.1. If you wish to Max Game Settings, you might need to build a Gaming Rig. Might.2. If you wish to Max Speed Settings, you might need to secure a TB+ speed package from your ISP. My ISP splits data between 10 Devices at any given moment.3. Remember Shadow dynamically replaces "components", so you don't have to.#TeamShadow👊🏾
I’m interested to know what setups you all have to use a webcam with Shadow?For my part I have a 50Mbit down / 8Mbit up home connection. I have a Shadow Ghost and various other devices and laptops that I can run shadow on. Using the straight USB over IP functionality of Shadow is no good as the uncompressed video feed of the webcam (in this case just a simple Logitech c270) overwhelms the upload capacity of the connection and introduces tearing in the webcam footage and lag in the rest of the experience.My solution:Local PC uses the webcam and the sets up a Skype meeting room with the webcam footage. On the Shadow I then join the Skype meeting room and use OBS to capture the window and provide a software webcam on Shadow which can then be used in any other application. I’ve successfully used this in Discord. I use the microphone functionality of Shadow separately to capture that but it could easily be captured through the Skype feed. This setup seems to use 1-2Mbit upload speed and doe
FYI - If you have a monitor with a native resolution greater than 4096 in width, like an iMac 5k, or the ultra ultra wide 5120x1440 display, you may have found that you get an S:101 error if you set a custom resolution to match your display. This is not a Shadow limitation, but a limitation of the Nvidia encoder that is used by default. If you enable the low-bandwidth mode setting in your client, you can run Shadow at much higher resolutions. This setting leverages the h.265 encoding which requires a little more horsepower on your client, but having native resolution is worth it! Just make sure to set low-bandwidth mode on before setting the custom resolution or you will get a S:101 error. Enjoy your super high resolution Shadow!
I have 6 Saitek controllers/panels to use with MSFS2020. All controllers can be forwarded however only one at the time. I use a fiber 500/500 connection to the data center that is like 5 miles away. Anyone successful in setting up a multi controller Saitek environment to use with Shadow boost and MSFS2020?
Greetings, I just got access to my Shadow boost. I was wondering if users ran everything through the shadow or had things like discord still on their main device?I’m showing 30ms latency at the moment so I’m not sure how smoothly things are going to work when I actually launch a game.Any other tips for a noob?J
I like to create this topic cause I have the newest Ipad Pro, and I am planning to buy a magic keyboard for using the Ipad Pro as a laptop. ***What are your experience with working on IPad Pro on Shadow as a designer/ gamer? (whether or not using the magic keyboard for iPad Pro). Like to hear from you guys :)
Just wanted to say I have been really enjoying Shadow ever since I signed up. Its allowed me to play VR games that I originally couldn’t on my Quest (Half-Life: Alyx). Look forward and can’t wait for the Quest app mentioned in the Road Map section. I am also playing some online games with friends that I haven’t been able to do in awhile due to my gaming rig going out on me. I continue to share info on shadow every time I get the chance. To me this is the future keep up the great work! *How do I sign up for the better systems? After signing up for boost I no longer see the option to upgrade or reserve the other options? Thanks!
Hey all! New to the forums (as most are) and thought I’d post a little something to give everyone a place to post their opinions! I recently lost my android phone and discovered that the Shadow App is actually in the Apple store and downloaded it right away. Off the bat I noticed that the game list wasn’t there when I logged in and that’s okay to me, no big deal. Actually I didn’t have much issues on it to be honest and so far I’ve used it about 3 times so I’ll deff need more time to mess around with it. anyway, what are you alls opinions on it? Anyone prefer the iOS build over the android? Vice versa? Let me know what you think! -Ghost.Pro
Little backgound on me. I love playing games on my 4k high refresh 65” big screen with my Steam controller. I was very sad about how the sound came across my steam connection from the Shadow system. It is very metailic and does not hit that bass like the native Shadow client does so well. That being the case, I have now muted the Steam stream sound and have it play on host in remote play from the Shadow system so I get the best sound and the graphics Shadows delivers. Here is the setting I am talking about in Steam: Steam (top left in non-big picture) > Settings > Remote Play > Advanced Host Options Play audio on host
When the System Protection utility is turned on, it automatically backs up system files and stores them on the hard drive at regular intervals and just before you install software or hardware. These snapshots of the system are called restore points and include Windows system files that have changed since the last restore point was made. A restore point does not contain all user data, and you can manually create a restore point at any time. System Restore (rstrui.exe) restores the system to its condition at the time a restore point was made. If you restore the system to a previous restore point, user data on the hard drive will not be altered, but you can affect installed software and hardware, user settings and passwords, and OS configuration settings. Tip 1: Enable System Protection 1.) Open Control Panel and open the System window. In the System window, click System protection. The System Protection tab of the System Properties box appears. 2.) Make sure protection is
How about the ability to connect multiple users to the same Shadow for the purpose of "local" multi-player?
Basically, this: You log in as usual and Shadow streams the screen and controls to you like normal. You send a friend a link and a duplication of your screen is simultaneously sent to them, but with them assigned a different controller # (or alternatively the same controller # if they're helping you or you're taking turns on a single player game). Perhaps even have separate "monitors" so that you each can have your own screen so that it doesn't have to be splitscreen multiplayer.
