Unfortunately, Shadow does not support such devices as it can only transfer mouse input, no touchscreen-like input.

And not even every touchscreen is pressure sensitive.

So no, it won’t work on Shadow and I don’t think (if ever) that it will get supported in the near future.

apple pencil or graphics tablet etc used by graphics artists rely on pressure sensitivity.  I’m not a professional artist and just a hobby but Shadow should consider that there should be customers who uses the pen for drawing.

 

Found a solution on another forum about using VirtualHere, VirtualHere is a software to allow remote use of USB devices but I would not like to use it.

 

USB over IP is actually supported right now in shadow by checking the USB Peripherals on the settings. Problem is IT IS NOT WORKING, not even detecting the device. Device works fine locally.

 

Does anyone here made it to work? Does has Shadow any plans to do something about this? Not all customers should be just gamers right?

Yes I am aware usb over ip is supported by Shadow, but the device is very complex for usb over ip to work with properly at the moment. They might implement it, but it is not their top priority at the moment. 

I am also very interested in this. I think basic Wacom tablet support should be seriously considered.

I am not using a Wacom brand sadly so I can’t test this but the latest update allowed wacom tablets through USB over IP

Please support this - thanks!

In some cases, touchscreen devices can be forwarded as a USB device, if your ping is low enough and your upload/bandwidth is high enough.

any updates on this?

It’s been a while, but they have Wacom support. So, it might be worth updating the results for people who have it?

I’d love pen pressure support too.

I use my Tab 7+ to log into shadow,

I can use the S Pen in Photoshop and Zbrush - but no pressure/tilt sensitivity, so kind of pointless.

Exactly how much work is it to add pen sensitivity?

It would be yet another great feature to advertise - you could essentially turn any tablet with pen functionality into a wacom cintiq.
