Aspect: comfort enhancement Description: while aiming the quest 2 controllers off screen have a option to resize , position , and curve the screen (best example can be seen in virtual desktop ) Impact: the impact of these changes would personally help allot , especially since my situation of a bad back injury and mainly bedridden , ontop of being displaced to a hotel due to covid-19 and a cruel landlord , im able to access my shadow via my quest 2 directly with the down side of not being able to adjust the screen position to my needs , but i will say it works rather well for being on hotel wifi of 13mbps
Stuttering head movement when looking aroundUnder Review
When I look around in the shadowVR Alpha then it stutters a ton. Its fine if I don’t move my head but if I do then it just makes me feel sick. I also didn’t see this is the known errors and idk if its my wifi. If anyone has any solutions please let me know. Edit: Sorry if this is the wrong flair or in the wrong place this is my first time using the forums.
On my Oculus Quest 2 I’m unable to start my VR stream. Was working just fine a few days ago. It starts off by saying “Starting VR Stream”, but for whatever reason it then goes to “Starting Desktop Stream”. And boots into the 2D desktop version were your device will not be detected. I’ve seen my shadow update and install the required environment drivers. I’ve also tried reinstalling the Shadow VR Alpha. I’m certain at this point there’s an issue on the backend of Shadow with their environment drivers. Other solutions I’ve read from support/staff suggest resetting the entire machine. But I believe this is due to the fact the environment drivers are buggy and developers can’t pin point the issue. I wouldn’t want to lose my ~1TB of data I have on my Shadow Client. Purchasing a third party app such as virtual desktop is a flawed solution. I want to use the native app that Shadow has created. This is very frustrated as a end user. No customer wants to spend hours on end troubleshooting. I’v
I have used the app before on my Oculus Quest 2, and it worked just fine the first time I used it, but now the Shadow VR app will not work. I press the start button and it gets stuck on “Starting VR Streaming”. I can run it in 2D and it runs ASAP, but I can’t run the VR streaming. I don’t have the money to get Virtual Desktop, and Oculus Air Link, and using a USB-A to USB-C doesn’t work. If you know a fix to this problem, please let me know.
Hi,I tested ShadowPC some time ago with Virtual Desktop, but unfortunately the lag was too much for me at this time.Today I saw that there is ShadowVR in alpha available. I now have upgraded to a Quest 2 and a new 5Ghz Router. Unfortunately my account tells me that I can only reactivate in December 21.Is there any way so that I can test ShadowVR earlier?Of course I’m not searching for a free ride - I’m willing to pay. I really like the idea of the cloud PC, but I don’t think I will wait this long and buy a new PC at home before …Thanks for any help.Steven
The Purple lines on steam VR graph stands for a display error, there are constant purple line and sometimes they will stop but just start right up again. When using shadow VR after a little bit of playing or using it pixel become deformed and decolored and the best example i have is something called pixel streaks.
Really high lagUnder Review
Gave the Shadow VR app a shot yesterday. Normally I use virtual desktop to play vr and it works very well in terms of latency, its just visuals take a slight bump with artifacting. However the VR app definitely gave me a headache in terms of lag that I was not able to handle more than a preliminary 3-4 minutes of just moving in the steamVR home before I was done from nausea. Basically when I moved my head, it would take the visuals a full second before catching up to my head. I’ll probably give it another shot today and load up a game and see how it runs. Also my set up is the same as when I run the virtual desktop so I dont think connecting is the problem. Also if this isnt the place to post this, sorry. Still not sure where to put feedback.
Hi, is there any changelog for version 3.7.1 which is on Sidequest already?And is work on the VR App still in progress due to the current situation and changes of Shadow?In my opinion this could be a very big thing as the first ever cloud gaming vr company, I really hope this will be continued. Wish you all the best.
When I tried to login to my Shadow over my Quest, I entered the first code 3 times. I thought since I had written it wrongly I need to correct it - I didn’t know a new mail gets sent if it is wrong.A little notification can greatly help new users.
I've had shadow vr installed on my quest 2 headset before through sidequest, but I uninstalled it. I tried reinstalling it after the latest update and sidequest says "apk installed" but it shadow shows up nowhere in unknown sources or even the headsets files. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Issue/Describe the bugPressing Occulus button while in SteamVR Home causes head tracking to be disabled. When pressed and then exiting the Occulus menu, you go back to SteamVR home but your vision no longer tracks your head and is slightly askew. Version:Alpha v. 3.7.0 Steps to Reproduce:Launch Shadow PC Alpha App Start in VR Mode and wait for boot into SteamVR Short press Occulus button on right joystick Click out of Occulus quick menu Additional NotesI was able to reproduce this three times in a row and I couldn’t find anything unique about what I was doing. My workaround is to go back to ShadowPC menu and re-enter VR mode.
IPD on oculus quest 2 level 3 is squished Horizontally which makes everything look tall and far away.Version 3.7.0I've tried everything I can think of regarding this issue but nothing works, some include staring the app in level 3, switching back and forth, restarting the app with the IPD been level 2 and switching up and so on.I use level 3 and not been able to use this make it uncomfortable after an hour, jitter I can deal with if I could use the right IPD for me.Thank you 👍
Hey dear friends of VR,In the first week of March, Facebook made some changes to their Quest Virtual Reality Check (VRC) Guidelines that affect the future of the Shadow VR App.They are just guidelines you say? Well sadly, unlike the parley, those ‘VRC’ Guidelines are actual rules that should be followed if you want to publish an app in Facebook’s Oculus Quest Store and App Lab. The changesAmongst the changes of the guidelines are changes to the aspect of streaming VR content to the Oculus Quest 1, as well as Oculus Quest 2 which have the biggest impact on the rollout plan and accessibility of the Shadow App. Quote: “Applications that stream interactive, immersive VR content may only do so from a local PC that the customer has physical access to.”This means that Shadow won’t be able to publish the Shadow VR App on the Oculus Quest Store or the App Lab for as long as the guidelines are in place and formulated as they are. What now?Nothing will change for now.We will of course continue
