Ok so this started happening around 2-3 days ago. When I launch my shadow pc after 10-30 seconds it freezes. I made sure that I updated my graphics card and everything. And I'm pretty sure I have the very most recent update on my shadow computer. Idk why this is happening but someone please help me or give me suggestions. Thanks.
Hi everyone, New shadow user here. I have noticed that I am unable to play Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord on my shadow PC. Whenever I open up the game, the mouse simply refuses to work. I am currently stuck on the Display Calibration screen of the game and unable to continue nor move any of the sliders. Wondering if anyone here has faced a similar issue - the developers of Bannerlord have advised I contact the Shadow team due to compatibility issues.
Hi, I recently picked up this Fifine T669 USB Microphone. Upon being happy to use it, and communicate with my friends, it refuses to work on my Shadow client. I am currently on MacOS, more specifically a 2019 Macbook. I have tried everything possible to try and fix this issue, and I have been trying for countless hours, I have read basically every forum/thread, talked with helpers in the Discord server, and nothing works. I have USB peripherals enabled, and my microphone enabled, and the correct one enabled in Shadow Quick Menu. The microphone works on my local machine too. I have tried Stable, Beta, and Alpha, and none work. Thanks
I’ve been trying to access my shadow for 48 hours now and it's stuck in a loop. I’ve tried all the tips I found for the workaround but Shadow won’t fully shut down. Every time I shut down it says “Shutting Down” it never makes it and starts automatically “Starting Shadow” again. I’ve submitted a support ticket but still no help from shadow yet. Any help would be appreciated!
Hello everyone,I hope someone is here to help me finding the best settings for my iPad Pro 12,9’. I’m playing WD Legion right now and it looks pretty nice, but there is something like “micro-lags” all the time. It seems to run not fluid enough. Right now the resolution is set to the native settings (2.732 x 2048, 60 HZ) and the Low-Bandwith-Mode is activated. My network should be fast enough with 100 Mbps and mostly under 18 ms latency using an USB-C Ethernet-Adapter. I’m trying to find the right settings to make it fluid and stop the micro lags. Is anyone here who can tell me his/ her settings for the iPad? Thanks before!

It lierally happens EVERY TIME.
I’m a linux user, (Manjaro, GNOME, testing), running on a AMD laptop. I like to make use of Shadow (beta client, but the problem exists in the normal one too) for those few windows games that just won’t play well with WINE. Anyways, because Manjaro is a rolling-release distro, a lot of the included packages and such tend to be newer versions than those in point releases such as Ubuntu (I’m assuming that Shadow is targeted towards 20.04 lts?) Anyways, recently, a new version of Mesa rolled out, and of course this came with changes for the vaapi drivers as well. In short, Mesa 20.2.x breaks something somewhere, leading to the aforementioned scaling issue. Simply put, depending on the resolution chosen, the decoded video stream is compressed very slightly, usually only by a few pixels, from the right, or from the bottom. This means that even when in fullscreen, there is a black bar added to the display, there are scaling artifacts, and as you get closer to the empty part of the display th
I’ve done a quick search and found no quality information on if it’s possible to print from Shadow to your home printer. I’ve started using the shadow for my business but I’m having to jump back to my desktop every time I need to print something out which essentially means I would be more efficient working from the desktop enitrely. The problem is, it’s old and not the most reliable machine at the moment and I’m getting better stability from doing the majority of my work on shadow. TL:DRHow do I print to my home network from Shadow?
I have high speed internet that has a monthly cap of 1.2TB. Is there a way to calculate\estimate the hourly usage of Shadow gaming at 1920x1080 x 60fps?My basic assumption the usage is equivalent to streaming a HD movie per hour. Last month I was within 10gb of my month cap, but not sure if Shadow had any significant impact on my usage.
Hey everyone,When I run shadow on my ipad Pro (which runs great btw) and hook up my second monitor via usbc...the ipad shows the launcher and the second screen shows the shadow desktop….however I cannot interact with it. Any ideas?If i run a game full screen I get controller support and THEN plug in my monitor. That works fine...however, just wondering how I can control the PC on a second monitor?

Hello, so I’m not new to shadow by any means having used this service on and off the last couple of years as my college gaming rig. I currently have some Astro A40s with the mixamp from the TR (tournament ready edition). Im trying to get my microphone to be picked up by the shadow pc with no luck unfortunately as I’ve had it working the last couple times Ive had this service. I would appreciate any help with this. Also as for internet speeds I have 500/500 fiber. P.S. When I used to use it beforehand during my other subs, I had an issue on and off where people especially in discord would here me twice and my mic would “echo” when someone else talked.
Hello Everyone,To start off, I’ve already submitted a ticket, but just incase anyone has a suggestion, I’m posting it here.I’m unable to login to the Shadow Client (Official) on my PC. When I try to login it says “Your Shadow is unavailable at the moment. Please try again later.”I’m on the California server and I don’t see any issues on the status pageIs there anything I can do or am I at the mercy of support responding? (It’s been about 3.5 hours) Thanks!
I have an Acer Chromebook 11 with (I think) 6th gen Intel integrated graphics. It works great for everything I need, except Shadow. The app crashes immediately after launching - from my understanding, Shadow's Android version doesn't like Intel based Chromebooks, only ARM based ones. So I installed Ubuntu (Bionic Beaver version) and managed to get the Shadow app to install and launch via "Shadowroot", but when I click on the big orange Start button I just get an R-300 error. Are there any drivers I can install or other updates I can make to Ubuntu to get Shadow to run on my Chromebook, or is this particular model of computer just completly incompatible even if I use Linux?
Hey, I’m trying to find the best and easiest way to sync files between my local computer and my Shadow Boost using a Synology DS218j NAS. I couldn’t find anything about it so I was hoping to get some help here. Which protocol/method would work best if I want to be able to access/drop/pick files from the NAS to Shadow or from Shadow? Application type: Shadow Desktop App (Mac) Shadow Client Version: Official Datacenter location: NL Connection speed: 200 mbit/sThanks!
It will only run as root, which is very insecure. As root, it will not recognize my controller. At least I think that is why as Parsec recognizes it just fine. This is the terminal output, first without --no-sandbox then with. Still won’t run. Support site does not provide an option for Linux client.

So ive used shadow for a long time and have never experienced anything like the issue im currently having.I had to change my optomize streaming setting to prefer reliabilty a long time ago due to mouse/ keyboard input delay issues. just yesterday my shadow was working fine, then suddenly last night i started getting insane latency.when i open the win+alt+o menu my latency says 4000+ ms which is not normal and i can barely move my mouse at all with all the lag.im already in contact with support about the issue and they have not came up with a solution yet.just wanted to see if anyone has had a similar issue and might have a solution to my problem the support said to try to use prefer speed, but that causes input delay on my controls and makes everything unplayable.
Kind of a long shot but I figured I’d ask. iOS is working great for me, but on my chromebook tablet using the android client, controller face buttons don’t work (tried 8bitdo and ds4). I thought I’d give the ubuntu app a go via crostini or whatever they’re calling it now, but then I remembered that this tablet is ARM and the Ubuntu app is for x86. Just curious if there’s an unlisted ARM linux binary or something.
