I am tired of this. When i play with the wheel, at some point I get a notification telling me I need to move the mouse / keyboard because they think I am away. At the meantime, quality of the streaming drops horribly. How can I avoid this ?
I’m confused. I wish I could just disable this feature, but Shadow always asks me on start “What do I want to do with this device?”What additional device. Only one monitor is connected.Then, the plot thickens. When I try to uninstall USB drivers, even though I’m on the official client I get asked if I want to upgrade to official with the following message:To switch version, both your Shadow x86/64 & your Shadow have to be restarted and updated. I downloaded the 32Bit version to see if it would make any difference here.Of course it doesn’t update, the launcher just restarts.Any workarounds for this?
I’m getting ~5fps in all of my games. I can hardly even navigate to websites in Google Chrome the lag is so bad. It was fine last night so no idea what is happening today with the servers. I’m using ethernet and I have google fiber internet. I’ve tried all troubleshooting steps: restarting my router, restarted Shadow, restarted my PC, etc. Issues persist. Sounds like this is happening to several others, per the Shadow Discord server.
i bought star citizen the other week and i thought id use shadow to let me play the game i looked online on how to make it work better and it told me to change the priority of the game in task manager so i went into task manager and it wouldnt let me change the priority it kept saying “unable to change priority” so me being the idiot i am and didnt read the rules i booted it up into safe mode then i couldnt get onto my shadow. i just wanted to change the priority so the game would run a little more smooth cant you do that or is my shadow just being like that?
I’m using a shadow hosted in Portland from the SF Bay area. My ISP is Sonic fiber, and when using a different game streaming service with a Santa Clara datacenter the latency is consistently 4 ms. My VM hosted with Linode in their Fremont datacenter is consistently 6 ms. I am aware some amount of added latency is unavoidable for the greater distance due to speed of light and other considerations. The lowest I’ve seen it is 19 ms, which is fine. What’s strange though is that other times it will be 30 or 40 ms, and it seems to switch between those three levels randomly for each session, and then remain at that level for the duration of the session. Interestingly it seems to pick one of those three levels, never anything in between. And if I go into the quick menu to cycle between TCP and UDP (forcing it to reconnect) I can get it to get back to 19 ms if I try enough times. This seems likely related to a network issue, but it’s hard for me to track it down with what I have available. The
So; recently I allowed shadow to swap me over to their newer servers and with doing so I realized that my shadow is using a hard drive that literally can’t even install Call of Duty: Black Ops (One) in less then 2-5 minutes and I know this is purely a storage speed issue because thats the only difference I can find in the shadow pc I mean this has gotten so bad that I can’t even load a webpage in less then 30 seconds anymore; and its starting to piss me off; when the price for shadow increased to 30 I didn’t mind it; but now I can’t even install a game because of the storage speed; at this point minus ingame performance; my normal computer is better then the shadow computer; and its a 5 year old workstation with integrated graphics and a 2tb 7200rpm barracuda hdd shadow please change the hard drives because at this point you’re literally scamming the people that decide to use this service out of 30 dollars a month*Edit: sorry scratch not being able to install a game; change that to No
After login start I only receive V100 and L108 responses. Down and up at home network are perfect. Since the support doesnt reply I am here with a useless and very expensive shadow system that does f all. Any tricks from the community to get this started?(Yes. I did restart routers, logins etc)Kind regards,P
i have had shadow since nov2021 and I was origiinaly on the New York(NY) data center with a consistant ping of ~10ms from Pensylvania ever since the tombstoning of the NY datacenter and swap to the Washinton DC datacenter i have had a ping of 35-45ms and i have even seen it as high as over 100ms making my shadow almost unusable. why the switch from NY to washington DC?
Bonjour,Je suis depuis peu sur un shadow ghost, or quand je l’utilise, en pleine partie de jeu un message s’affiche sur le bas de l’écran me demandant si je suis toujours là. C’est le message avant l’extinction automatique du Shadow par manque d’activité. En même temps je ressen une grosse chute de FPS. Or je l’utilise, je suis en pleine partie. Le message ne disparait pas. Puis le shadow ghost s’éteint.Savez-vous comment résoudre ce problème ?
Hi, I have 2 monitors on my system and have shadow running in the right in window mode. When I try to turn a character inside the game running in the shadow. the mouse leave that monitor and goes to the other one, so I loose control of the character, quite annoying and makes it impossible to do anything really. How do I make the mouse cursor/control stay inside the shadow window? And follow question, how do I move the mouse out of the window so I can go to the other monitor?
Since a few months now the shades/Lighting is massivly broken on my shadow PC. Whenever there is nightime in any game or even a black person i can’t really see anything or the person. I tried to fix it with gamma and brightness but its all to max and still doesn’t help really. Where can i fix this?!

I’m on Shadow Mac OSerror I get every timeHas anyone had this problem and managed to fix it? Many thanks in advance
The speed is high but latency averages around 45 ms with couple of seconds extra. Before going to spend more money on crap wifi amplifier looking for recommendation.Would like to connect direct, but router in wife office, and don’t care to be in there trying to use.Ordered a scanner for 3d and was going to use with Shadow and usb forwarding, but latencymaybe too high.No hurry. Scanner was Kickstarter project, will be month before it comes. I love Shadow so far.Just not wanting to buy laptop to run scanner. Already too much money spent for hobby use.
