Ubuntu connection issue - Launcher fails to launch the streaming app
Before I dive into this please can you let your guys know that the discord invite in the welcome emails is dead, also on the Ubuntu app the instructions for sending Shadow logs are incorrect (or I am an idiot and can’t find the send logs button)I’ve finally got around to setting up my shadow, I am a linux user and have completed installing the pre-requisites but when I hit the ‘Start Now’ button the app appears to very briefly (less than a second) launch the streaming window and then it immediately closes and shows the following error: As I mentioned above I can’t see a way to dump logs from the linux app (also Linux isn’t an option on the support ticket form!). My Neofetch as follows: Any advice you guys can offer would be awesome. Thanks!
Is there any way to know which state is best for me?
Hi!I live in Panamá and wanted to try Shadow. As there’s no server here I’m connecting to the California one. My latency is 150+. I have a good internet connection here (fast.com says 80Mbps and 12ms latency), and when I did a test to different states it seems that I would have better latency with the ones on the East Coast. Is there any way to test every Shadow location in the US, and if I found a better one, would it be possible to change from CA to another? Even If I have to wait the queue again.

Call of duty Cold war
Ok so i been playing cod cold war on my shadow boost. But for some reason no matter what settings i use i see a lot of sturtting looking left to right also a lot of slow downs. Now is this due to the cpu or something is why i see this. My fps is always good over 60 good internet. I also see this in battlefield 5 to the point i can not play the game at all 1080 p or in 2k. I just hope if i get the chance to upgrade to the 2080 one or higher that will fix this. At this point not sure how long i will keep playing on here if all games are going to run like this. Any help would be amazing still new to pc gaming so been trying to learn how to fix settings but at this point i have turn everything on low at 1080p i still get it. Note i have played some old fps games with zero issue.

Keep Shadow active while playing VR
When playing VR (pokerstars) with Virtual Desktop on my Oculus Quest 2, the shadows seems to time out after some time. The game locks up, but audio chat remains working. If I pull off my headset, or return to the VD environment, I can see the shadow inactivity warning, and the pokerstars window with (not responding) on the title bar. seems like I can manage to keep the shadow from shutting down, but the game is unrecoverable. If I try to use the “enter VR” button on VD, I get an error. My workaround is to keep the mouse of the PC I stated shadow on nearby, and move it once in a while, but if I forget, i get locked up. Any advice? I was going to try an auto mouse mover, but then saw they are forbidden.
Hello,I allow myself to post here to share my concerns.This morning, I launched my shadow but it did not launch, it remains stuck in step “2.Starting Shadow” and then goes back to the initial plan “Shadow is off”.I already tried everything, re-install the application, checked my subscription, client version, login, install my drivers, enabled my gc.But still no launch of Shadow, which is why I turn to you for help on a possible solution.Cordially.

Hello how is everyone ? We are trying to play phantom covert ops on Quest 2 and as soon as we click on it I get kicked to ask to sign into FB. Here’s the thing I’m already signed in on a phone and when it asks me to confirm by sending code it says to yahoo.com well my e mail is gmail.com. Also that the only VR game that does it and it always worked until now. Thank you very much for the help. Really appreciate it. Take care 😀
Apple M1 ARM support
Hi,I’m goint to buy the new M1 MacbookPro and I was wondering whether shadow is going to run on it? I guess there’s no native app for that, but is it running under Rosetta2? It’s kinda crucial knowing that I’ve already found a few apps not working with M1 nor Rosetta.Thanks,Daniel
apple tv or nividia Shield
Good morning all I post a lot but so new to all of this. Right now i play on a apple 4k tv box right now but still not sure if its doing a good job. The reason i say that is all my games no matter what settings i have on i get this crazy stutter looking left to right. I have done everything for settings to the point i turn call of duty cold war down to 720p all on low settings but i still get it. So i jump on my wife labtop its doing it still but so little its crazy hard to see that stutter. So is this a apple tv issue if so should i switch over to the shield?. Hope you all can help me out on this. Note its not internet i had 150 download so that is good.

Virtual Desktop low latency when on desktop, but 500-2000 once game is launched (VR Quest 2)
So my Shadow was activated. I updated drivers, downloaded steam, oculus, and virtual desktop. I get connected (5 Ghz Wifi6 Comcast 1 Gig Down 40 Mbps Up) and while in 2D I have no issues with my 50 to 70 ms. As soon as I launch a title it’s unplayable. I’ve watched a ton of content and read a lot on it. Tinkered with all my of settings (to the best of my knowledge). At one point it looked like I had it nailed (Vader Immortal was running great). As soon as I tried anything else it was back to horrible. I’ve since been unable to replicate those ideal condtions.

I really want to use Unity with Quest 2
I just got the new quest, started building in Unity, figured out how to export to the quest, and then I discovered Shadow so I figured I could take my creations to the next level as I have an old 2010 MacBook Pro. Everything about shadow seems great but shadow does not recognize when I plug in my quest so I can no longer test my projects. If I go to my original Mac desktop I can see the window that pops up from when I connected the quest but I would love if shadow can see my quest so that I can import my unity projects into quest as I was doing before. Please help if you can, I would like to continue this service, thank you.

Crazy lag no game will run smooth.
So i got my shadow but for some reason 7pm to 10:45 each night the server will start to drop like crazy. I will run a test on my end all good. Speeds around 250 mbps. If i run a test on the shadow app 8mbps. This is with the same internet with fiber. So i did a speed test also on the shadow tech website hitting 100 mbps. Did i get put on a wrong server. Did a check this morning all good now Shows 151 mbps on the shadow app. For some reason this will only happen from 7pm to 10:45pm. But last night i was getting two speeds with the website say i was around 50 mb/s with the app saying 16mb/s to as low as 8 mb/s.I have attached two photos of the issue going on. I love shadow but i cant keep it if i can not game for 4 hrs of the day that happens to be the only time i can play. This is with fiber internet also so not sure what is going on. Also sorry for my spelling i have a learning disability.
