Shadow freezing on late 2007 imac
Hi allI've been shadow for three months now on a 2012 macbook pro, and its been running perfectly. Had some issues at the start, but that has been resolved. Since yesterday, i've been trying to get shadow to work at my imac at work. (its our own business, dont worry) This thing is pretty much an old beast. Mid 2007 2.7 ghz dual core with 4 gig of ram. It fits the minimum spec requirements. I got it running, but, it freezes when loading a game, or some random stuff. For instance, in battlefield 3, it loads a map thru battlelog, but when i get at the deploy screen, video freezes in an instant. It's basically the game still running, if i were in a game i could still hear the match going, audio continues etc. I had the same problem some times with my macbook pro the first week. Also note, connection at work isnt great. Its max 38 down/27 up. What should I try? Was thinking about upgrading the ram to 8gb and putting an ssd into it. But maybe the imac specs are too minimum, even tho they fi
I run shadow on an iMac Mid 2014, and lately I have been having connection issues. This may be my connection but I have reason to believe that it could be a problem with shadow. Whenever I run a game I notice my ping goes significantly higher to 300-500 but my connection on desktop or something light to run like google chrome is 22-23. Another thing I also noticed is that when running a game I check task manager and the disk percentage on the rig is 100% and the whole column is outlined in red. When I do go off the game the percentage goes down as does my ping. I’m pretty sure I am connected to the Paris servers of shadow, and I run the latest version of shadow. I do have a ethernet cable and run about 20 - 25 ping average.If there are any fixes for that help, ASAP would be appreciated, and if you have any additional information from me required just ask and I’ll try to provide you with some.Again I’m not sure whether its my connection or just shadow in general I just want it to be fix
Lag and Being Booted From Session
I have been having problems with my Shadow recently and was wondering if anyone else was having the same issues. I use FFMPEG through the command line tool and it has been ungodly slow. Right now I am trying to extract frames from a video and it is going at a rate of 0.109. The video is 1920x1080 and 2 minutes long and it has taken 20 minutes and it’s only at the 1:40 mark. I also have experienced a lot of lag when just navigating from one program to another. There seems to be a second or two delay and if I have a prompt that comes up like Admin privileges then the screen goes black and I have to exit and close it and turn it off and then restart Shadow again. I also get kicked off randomly for no apparent reason. It will just boot me and I have to go back into it and it isn’t locking me out or booting me because of inactivity. Anyone else have this problem or know what could be the problem? It has gotten bad in the last month and before that it worked fine as I have had a subscripti
Age of Empires 2 Definite Edition
Hello,I have the following problem:As soon as I play the game Age of Empires 2 Definite Edition (on lowest graphic setting) for about 1 hour, my framerate breaks down from 60 FPS to 1-5 FPS, which makes playing the game almost impossible. I have a DSL 100.000 line and the problem occurs when playing via WLAN as well as via LAN. Is the game graphically too complex? Actually it can't be, can it? Playing on MacBook Pro 2020

Any way to get past the R300 error on a virtual machine running Windows 10?
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. Is there any way to bypass this error?I have tried disabling low-bandwidth mode and it just asked me to do it again as soon as I restart or try to reconnect
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.
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.

V100 error with WIFI
When I am using LTE connection, I can start the shadow program but if I connect to the wifi, the shadow shows me the error v-100. I think this is because of the wifi configuration or setting. Anyone knows what specifically the wifi version, configuration, setting need to be for shadow?I am using public WIFI from my apartment and it is using IPv4.

Ubuntu 20.04 response time issues
Hey Shadowers!Got an odd performance/video issue on one of my rigs. I’m running Ubuntu 20.04 on a HP Revolve 801 G12-core 2.4GHz proc 12GB RAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 Ethernet connection to a GbE Switch 200Mbps internet Connected via HDMI to a 60” TVBasically when I start up the app (official and beta tried), the top half of the screen loads, but the bottom half looks like an old scrambled cable TV channel. None of my inputs/commands receive a response, and at times, it doesn’t even recognize my KM. My Ubuntu PC does, but Shadow does not. It also takes forever to bring up the quick menu, and I can’t take a screenshot of the stats due to that same severe lag.Shadow runs fine on my other devices, even over 4G, so bandwidth isn’t an issue. I’ve tried changing the allocation, low bandwidth mode, resetting everything, including my devices, and running the bash scripts provided in other threads. Nothing seems to solve the issue.My only guess is that my resolution settings aren’t compatible wi

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.
Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord Cannot Click Buttons
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.
Microphone Issues | MacOS
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
Shadow stuck on "Starting Shadow" and won't shut off
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!
