Every few days while booting up shadow I see: “update in progress” either from the launcher or right before I start my shadow. WHAT are you guys updating? Seriously there are no new features and I'd have trouble believing there are that many bug fixes. If you are releasing bug fixes, where are the patch notes? people want to see their issues getting resolved via updates but there are NO PATCH NOTES. Why? Seriously every other software developer in the world has release notes. Please add your release notes so we’re not in the “shadows” about what's happening with these updates. It's a little frustrating. Note: I’m on beta, which is why there maybe so many updates, I dont care how many updates there are, my point is about no patch notes.
Hey! Loving shadow and my experience is great on it. Been using shadow mostly in my OLED 65 inch tv so enjoying the quality. My question is in regards to specs of hardware we will be getting over the years with our premium subscription (ultra and more specifically infinite) how often will we see upgrades happening to the GPU and CPU? An easy example is the rtx 3080 that's coming up soon. In this case will we see a switch to a new RTX titan card when released? What's the time frame/roadmap for every hardware upgrade? A year? Two years? Can we get some answers for this inquiry please? Thank you :)
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
Hello New user in the forums, and about a month into using Shadow streaming for working on video game design. Im sure this might be the lazy route but Im just curious if there are any rules in the TOS that adress products created on the shadow computer (or stream etc). For example, I use Unreal engine 4 (game engine) and create a full game and then sell that game am I supposed to pay shadow for using the service in the creation of the product? SORRY IF THIS IS DUMB question, really. Im loving the quality and response time of shadow so far and its making my slightly out of date computer be able to takle multiple aspects at once. Thank you in advance.
So I set up the shadow subscription a few months ago and then forgot about it, in the meantime due to work and the coronavirus I have ended up in lockdown in Malta, so I didn’t expect a lot. Well, my first impressions are that it’s bloody amazing, I can actually play games on my Mac! I’ve never seen anything like it! im lucky in that my company provided broadband is pretty good, but the client did complain about my latency however to now it’s not been an issue. looking forward to many more hours of shadow gaming and my new life as a shadow evangelist. Unfortunately any productivity I had in my life has now gone out of the window!
I just wanted to give a shout out to the devs and team that runs Shadow. Mine was turned on Saturday and so far, its been AMAZING running high settings with RUST. I was able to play through my MAC, Surface Book, Tablet and iPhone. It’s incredibly hard to believe. I was only going to subscribe for a month out of sheer curiosity. I run a decent rig with an intel i9 and 1090 GTX that I would connect through Parsec. - so I was familiar with the experience of cloud gaming. But I could never get the best definition and FRs that the service promised. Once I started using shadow, I was blown away. The mere fact that it starts fast, games load fast and they look good - all in a little app. I am now a subscriber for quite a long time. Thanks Shadow =) RR
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
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.
Well as shadow let’s you have your own pc and gives you a lot of tweaks for you bandwidth. I suggest going for shadow only $11 for A yearly subscription of shadow boost and $15 for an monthly subscription of shadow boost it’s an unbelievable deal. Shadow used to be $35 that’s crazy. But my opinion does not matter just by price it’s how it performs. Now as shadow does have bugs and problems. It’s still and great cloud gaming service I suggest going with shadow because anyway the time is long for activation it’s worth it you don’t have any interruptions on your games and gameplay shadow supports up to 15mbps but works better with no packet loss and low ping. I really enjoy there community and I know you would to. If you want to have an great talk with amazing people I suggest put your preorder in and head over to the discord shadow. Has many options for editors and gamers join the community now.!!! this is my opinion please respond below on your thoughts.
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
I'm a VDI engineer, meaning I build and support Enterprise virtual desktop environments, typically using Citrix technology as the main point of delivery, with others mixed in. Until Onlive and later Sony popularized the idea of cloud gaming to me, the only knowledge I had on the subject was Citrix's old ICA/HDX protocol and later, GPU support. The entire protocol was TCP at the time. They now have UDP support in the protocol, but framerates are still limited at 60 fps. Naturally, it's built for many users using as little bandwidth as possible, not buttery smooth gaming. Shadow, parsec, etc are obviously built for a different purpose. But what does Shadow infra look like? Does it run on KVM? Xen? ESX? Is each VM entirely persistent (as they appear to be?) Hardware wise, is shadow built on hyperconverged? Is there already some place where I can discuss these things?
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.
It’s rather simple. Shutdown, wait 15 minutes. Make sure to wait the 15 minutes, then just start it again. This has always fixed any non-global issue I’ve ever had. Other things you can try is closing then reopening the Shadow window. To Shutdown from your launcher, simply follow this link.
If your Shadow CPU is at 100% for no apparent reason. Fear not! The current known solution is to wait 20 minutes for the process to clear….. Why so long? Im curious as well…. Please post any further information you uncover on this in the comments.
