Shadow VR Early Access
Welcome to the Shadow VR Early Access
In the step 6 of the vr set up it says you have to disable password windows log. And in the walkthrough it is really straightforward it seems you just have to take off the checkmark. But on my system I don't seem to have the checkmark that says "users must enter a username and password to use this computer" do yall have any idea why? Ps when I try to start the vr it just brings me to the 2d desktop
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

As you may know, in the Shadow VR Beta when you try to launch the game Boneworks, your controllers will not work correctly and will result in every control not working. After doing some research ive stumbled upon this https://issueexplorer.com/issue/GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/Radeon-ReLive-VR/93 (I know this is for a different thing but stay with me) in the answer here they say that, “I can only guess what the game is doing, but we've seen games that would attempt to use the Oculus API directly even under Steam. In case of ReLive VR this API is simply not present as there isn't a real device connected to the PC that the Oculus runtime can recognize.”. I think this could be the same problem that Shadow VR Is facing, the person that gave the answer said that Virtual Desktop emulates the Oculus API meaning the game behaves correctly. Maybe this could mean thats Shadow VR isnt emulating it and needs to for games to work properly? Still, im not sure and I would need people to back me up. Tell
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. :/
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
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’m 2D mode, it is very hard to read and use windows desktop, I think the canvas size of tye 2D mode should be adjustable and in a higher resolution than 1080 by default, also, including a windows virtual keyboard button on bottom right corner in the windows would be a good addition.
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.
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!
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!
Hi guys!If you read the feedback about the latest SteamVR-update (last Friday) the issue seems to be the SteamVR update – not Shadow Alpha it self. The feedback on the latest SteamVR update here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/250820/eventcomments/3162083441793504997?snr=1_2108_9__2107So the solution might be reverting back to an older SteamVR-version. I will keep you guys updated trying this and would appreciate if anyone has already tried using an older SteamVR with Alpha?Best regards, Kevin
Anyone else having problems with Steam VR not detecting Oculus Quest 2 headset after Steam updated their app last Friday? I belive Shadow`s software (Alpha) is not corresponding with Steam`s new software update. Any suggestions? Appreciate all the help as I currently can not access the VR stream but only the 2D desktop. Ps: I know many are using Virtual Desktop – but until now I have been very happy using Alpha. And not interested going through the hassle of using AirLink – as my experience so far is Alpha should do the job with out any “extra” (VD and AirLink). Thanks guys! Best regards, Kevin
I have sideloaded the Shadow VR Alpha on to my Oculus Quest 2. When I open it, it takes me to the sign in page. For some reason, when I try to log in, it keeps telling me "login failed" I tried changing my password and the new one will not work either. I know I am typing it in correctly, and I've logged into my Shadow on other devices numerous times using the same password. The only thread I could find with a similar issue had one answer, stating that either the person was using the wrong password or their Shadow has not been activated. I have been using Shadow since January and know for 100% fact that I am putting in the right password, so that thread did not help. What am I doing wrong? Is there something else I am missing? It seems like no one else is having this issue..
Hello everyone (and a happy belated 🎃Halloween), This is Raphaël, your product manager for the Shadow App for Oculus Quest - aka Shadow VR (Alpha) -. It’s been a bit more than a week since the app was released in its Alpha state and I wanted to thank you all for trying it out. It’s given us some great insights so far, and it’s going to help us even more moving forward.I was happily surprised to see more than 1,200 of you fine folks downloaded the app in the first week. Cheers!Thanks to your help, we've already confirmed and identified root causes for common blockers such as: being stuck on “starting Shadow VR” landing on a zoomed-in 2D desktop environment But also other major issues like: the overall lack of fluidity of the head movement the update time when changing devices So thank you to all you stubborn people out there who keep trying to help us find these issues! :) We are also happy to see that most of your positive feedback mentions good hand tracking and latency, as w
I am really in need of a feature that would help me with using shadow more efficiently and that would be extremely useful.Basically I use shadow for multiple things but mostly being after effects and photoshop. most of the time whenever I want to switch layers I cannot do so, I can’t scroll on my iPad in shadow because as you might know there isn’t a scroll bar on adobe apps when trying to switch layers.I think a scrolling feature would make shadow way more efficient to use. Of course it’s not vital and I can find ways around it but on mobile devices, shadow can easily perfect itself to become fully accessible and easier to use if people have more suggestions that you guys could add. As of now here’s my ideas/requests:Scrolling feature Zooming in being way less mistakable (I’d normally try zooming in but when doing so I’d mess something up in my editing so maybe removing touch controls while doing so) have a built in keyboard (just like the one windows has ,onscreen keyboard, so when y
I am curious why there is not a ‘trackpad mode’ on the iPhone/Android versions of Shadow? As an example, Google Remote Desktop allows you to toggle between two different versions of the mouse. One version is you can click using your finger and the second is to use trackpad mode. Trackpad mode allows you to use the mouse on screen and use the touch of the screen as a trackpad to control that mouse. Considering Shadow uses KVM this would be a fairly easy thing to implement. In order for me to get around this, I had to install Google Remote Desktop on my Shadow instance to use trackpad mode. It would be great if I didn’t have to use that though and could just use my Shadow on my iPhone.Thank you,
So im having difficulty with vision when running the alpha app on my quest 2. Ive been able to mess around a little bit but have to close one eye to make sense of anything. Seems like the image is not lined up right (perhapse the ipd isnt being accounted for in the software).Just wondering if anyone else is dealing with double vision or if someone was able to fix it.
