Some games do not work, do not start. Windows Server 2019
I am delighted to use shadow, it is a very stable and reliable system and platform.I have upgraded to a higher version with 32GB ram and nvidia RTX 6000. The system still seems to be in early access.I don't understand why I have been given the platform on windows server 2019 and not windows 10 like normal shadow. I think that having the windows server 2019 operating system is imcompatible with many games I'm not sure, at the moment I use the system for work and play but some games of last generation work perfectly and others however not as forza horizon 5 that does not boot.It also does not allow me to install Gforce Experience because it gives error.Any suggestions are welcome. I was thinking of talking to shadow support to see if there is a possibility of getting the system with windows 10. I think windows server 2019 is not good for games, can it be?

Application type Ghost Shadow Client Version Official Local device CPU ghost Local device GPU ghost Datacenter location Amsterdam Connection speed 500 mbit Description I have buy a new 1440p (60 hz) monitor and have some weird stutter in the game/stream. My game FPS and shadow FPS are 60 but I have a micro stutter with movements. I have my ghost connected with a hdmi cable (high speed) I order today a 2.1 ultra speed cable maybe that works.

Cannot install Shadow VR to Quest 2
I am not able to download the Shadow VR app via sidequest on my Quest 2. It claims the apk is downloaded, but it is not located in my unknown sources tab. I tried to download a few other apps and they work fine. Anyone else had this issue and if so a fix ? I'm fine with waiting, but would like to try it a little early ! Thank you in advance.
Mic not working with most recent Shadow update
After the update on the 2nd of march (I think?), my Shadow PC hasn’t been registering any sort of audio output. My normal PC detects my mic just fine, I have tried switching my microphones, unmuting via sound control panel, troubleshooting, and restarting several times but to no avail so far.I’d like to get this fixed soon, I can’t speak with friends, record videos, nor play games that require me to have a microphone. open to suggestions, but there is a lot I have tried that hasn’t worked.
Sudden performance drop --> GPU Benchmark: 187 instead of 964
Hello, when I started today my shadow (Lost Ark), I noticed that the game was unplayable. Probably about 10 FPS. Yesterday everything was fine.I did the nova gpu benchmark and got a score of 187. According to their website, a Nvidia geforce gtx 1080 should get an average score of 964. That's probably the reason why Lost Ark is unplayable atm. So there seems to be an issue with the graphic card (maybe on the virtualization layer?). How can this be fixed?
Email Authorization Code Won't Accept
For the first time that I can remember, I’m being asked to enter an email auth code that is emailed to me at the time of logging into shadow. I enter the code and it says the code is wrong even though I triple checked and it’s right. I clicked option to request a new code and that one doesn’t work either… tried that until it said i have no more attempts left and to try again later. What’s going on? How can the code I’m being sent not work?
Shadow keeps using 0.2 or 2 MBP/s despite having 25 MBP/s allocated. Low bandwidth is activated, if I deactivate it, nothing happens. I have a 100 MBP/s connection. And my Shadow is connected to the Santa Clara server. And if it helps I haven’t used Shadow for a week since I had some technical issues with my 100 MBP/s connection.

Stability using Stadia
I have been playing several games through Stadia on my Shadow Server for several month now. Today I logged in to try one out and Stadia won’t launch games saying there is a connection stability issue. I ran all of the Windows updates etc and clearly there is a solid connection. Anyone have any ideas as to what may have happened or how to fix the issue?
Issue while playing at 4K/60fps
I ready already some Topics about this but want to clarifyit a bit more to know where the Issue lies. I play on my Mac mini with M1 Chip, its 4k/60fps capable. When Playing (War Thunder) I notice very hard Stuttering at 4K. Sometimes funny enough also on HD and WQHD without V-Sync or an Max. FPS Cap at 60, but (on HD/WQHD) I get around 140fps, on 4K 50-60fps ingame, what massivly bothers my when I see that the Frames are not the Problem, the Bandwidth seems also ok, my Internet Speed I have at home (living in North-Germany) is near 1GB (980mbs) download, and 50mbs upload. Testet it with H.265 on and off, and turnt also 4:4:4 on and of (which a bit helps but not really)I consider atm. to Switch from my Mac mini M1 and to buy parts for a PC with iGPU (Intel Core i7-11700K 11. gen) when the encoder or the Mac itself is the Problem :/I know Shadow is no holy grail and 4K Gaming is a first world problem but when I can't play proper, no Star Citizen and Stuff I want to play, but can't, is th
Are the shadow servers in Amsterdam having a hard time?
Normally I don't have slim to none problems with shadow. I played this afternoon with my server located in Amsterdam, while having fiber internet. Suddenly my game started lagging and that only happens when I start my game. Could this be a stressed server ?

I'm running Windows 10 anniversary and using latest 64-bit Shadow client. my native operating system doesn't seem to support Shadow so I'm trying everything I can.

USB device forwarded but not visible in Windows 10
Hi,running the current shadow (Launcher v4.29.14 | Client v3.15.16 from web site as of 2022-02-11) on MacOS Monterey 12.1 (Macbook Pro). I want to use my (oldie but goldie) Microsoft Force Feedback 2 Joystick with X-Plane. The Shadow itself is completely virgin (freshly installed and fully MS updated 2022-02-11 + current Nvidia driver 511.65).Shadow client USB support installed flawlessly, I see the joystick offered in the shadow overlay on the shadow instance and also can tick it to being forwarded as expected. So, everthing looks good, but the device simply is not recognized at all by Windows@Shadow.Currently i use the very same device successfully via VirtualHere (joystick plugged into a local linux machine running the VirtualHere server, and Windows@Shadow running the VirtualHere client). With this configuration the joystick drivers are installed by windows as soon as i connect the joystick in the VirtualHere client for the very first time, and afterwards it just works. So basicall
Input lag only when running a game
Hello!This is my first time posting on this forum I have an odd problem. I play a few games on Shadow, but my main game is Apex (the others are also FPS games with the same problem). My issue is major input lag. When I first launch the game, for 30-45 seconds, no input lag, but after that, when I move my mouse, about 400ms after, the cross hair moves. The weird part is that if I tab out of the game (it’s still running) and reopen it, the lag goes away for another 30-45 seconds. Happens every time to all the games I tried (Apex, Fortnite, GTA V even an aim trainer I found on Steam).To make this more interesting, I also use GeforceNow. ZERO issues. No input lag or any problems. On my end, I’m connected via Ethernet; 500mb/s up and down. I have an i7 and a 1060 Windows machine. If anyone can help me, that would be amazing! Thanks!!
VM not activated; Online portals shows no orders
I ordered my shadow a few days ago. It previously told me that I had one order in the works. Today I checked the portal and my shadow is not activated, but it shows no orders in progress. Is this a mistake, a bug, or do they just take the order out of the portal when it’s about to be activated?
