After some of the recent updates, I’ve noticed that the shadow window won’t close and can’t be closed after shadow get’s shutdown from inactivity. Same thing when I shut it down myself. I’m on windows 10 1909. I have to use task manager to close the window. After which the launcher will open up and say there’s another instance of shadow running.
Hello everyone. I was wondering if someone is using fightcade 2 on shadow. The application is working fine and I can play more then 7000 retro games online against other people from all over the world. The only problem is that when i want to play against someone else that is also using shadow on the Amsterdam data server we both get a black screen and nothing happens. First I thought it was the application but when he is trying fightcade 2 on his local pc everything is working fine, on shadow he can play with other people also. Someone else with the same problem?
Application type (Mac) Shadow Client Version (Official or Beta, both display the same behavior) Intel Core i5-1038NG7 Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU) Datacenter location (TX) Speed Test to TX datacenter averages 600Mb down, 800Mb up, 23 latency, no jitter. When using Shadow full screen with either the official or the beta app on Catalina, I’m missing all of my notifications (email, messages, etc.) unless I open the Shadow overlay. Is this by design or is there a setting that I can change to allow my notifications to come through? Other: Date when problem appeared. (Problem has always been present.) Did you take any action(s) which could have created this problem? If so, what? (NO) Do you recall any action(s) you took after it happened? (I tried swapping to the beta application to see if it helped, but it didn’t. Do you use a VPN and/or antivirus? (No) Please provide a screenshot of your shadow stats (Alt+Win+O). Also make sure it captures a timeframe wh
Recently whilst I start up shadow I get audio stutter. I try to restart the stream but it freezes. I have to ctrl alt del to close the window then start the stream again that way. That fixes the issue, but it’s a pain doing that every time. It also freezes like this when i’m shutting down shadow too. My direction keys seem like they’re sticking whilst I’m playing a game, pubg or apex for example. I have turned off the sticky keys on both machines. Sometimes it gets so bad it makes the games unplayable. Support told me to turn it off and on again, it didn’t help. Is anybody else having these issues or know of a fix for them?
Having trouble with left mouse button on first person shooters. Does anyone have any idea what this might be?
I’ve been having issues for a while using shadow as my main PC. For some reason, any first person shooter I tried to play, doesnt respond to my left mouse button. I have to remap the fire button to the middle scroll on my mouse. This is probably something the games themselves do to prevent bots that use virtual machine somehow. Have anyone found a way around this at all?
Cuando me metí en mi sombra me mostró una pantalla como si acabara de instalar Windows 10, pero cuando terminé de procesar todo parecía normal con los juegos que instalé. Pero al mirar bin, desapareció el panel de control de la sombra, el que se ingresó con el comando "Win + Alr + o" pero no responde : C Perdón por mi octografía, soy de Colombia y no hablo inglés
Application type (Windows) Shadow Client Version (Official) Local device CPU multi Local device GPU multi Datacenter location (check status.shadow.tech) Texas Connection speed: 30mbs down and 4 up Description of issue I use a usb Astro a40 headset and mixamp with shadow on 2 different windows pc’s and for over a year have never really had any issues. But as of a week ago its been hit or miss on if the mic of my headset will work on shadow (It always works on the native pc). I don’t use USB forwarding through IP (though when I did try it my mic works but audio becomes unusable and just get sever stuttering). I’ve changed every setting and have no idea whats causing it, then the next time I sign in without changing anything some times it just works… I’ve seen others ask similar questions on here but no answers/confirmed answers… I really hope I’m not doomed to just have to get another headset when this one is perfectly fine..
Shadow Boost states the processor should be up to 3.4 GHZ (clearly with Turbo Boost and not base clock). However, if I open Geekbench 5 in Shadow, it is a 2.5 GHZ that Turbo Boost only up to 3.0GHZ. Are some servers only turbo boost up to 3.0GHZ despite the advertisements for 3.4?
The exact topic got this is closed yet has no answer other than how to set it up. I got past that and was using it however it now crashes the game after 30min like I had not being keeping it active despite the fact I moved the mouse or talked the phone screen. Indeed it’s still running on the app when I look yet br session is dead with various messages about hardware and gpu not being available. I was already fed up having to keep it awake every 25 min but now even that doesn’t let me stay on longer than 30 min at a time.

My shadow is located in the Paris datacentre.Harry
Whenever i am playing Warzone on shadow, shadows latency randomly spikes up to over 1000ms. Usually it lasts for a couple minutes. Whenever this happens, as soon as i close the game, it drops down to 20-40 ms. i have tried following one of shadows solutions which was to open ports and while it did help, it still occasionally happens. i don’t think it is a problem with the game because my in game latency is usually at 15-30 ms. these latency spikes are my main problem with shadow and i need a way to get rid of them or at least make them less common. By the way, Warzone is the only game i have installed. Thanks.
I recently got my Shadow, and I was excited to finally play games and talk to my friends at the same time. I set up my microphone, turn on the setting, and nothing happens. I switch my mic to the external Shadow microphone option, and I still get no audio from my microphone. I decide to forward the USB to the Shadow, and it works. But, sometimes the microphone CUTS OUT COMPLETELY, and I must go back to the Discord tab, and re-enable the microphone. I’ve tried to fix this with voice changers, and the microphone STILL cuts out randomly. I’ve tried everything, and I don’t know what to do. Can someone please help me?
Hi, I got Shadow setup on my Fire TV and it’s working perfectly, but the bluetooth connected controller is not. I tried the Dualshock 4 and the Xbox Wireless Controller - both are working mostly good, but the options/start button and the share/back button are not working, making most games unplayable. both buttons are not recognized in shadow at all, I can’t configure them. I found out that both buttons seem to be mapped as fire tv remote buttons (menu and back) and thus are executing fire tv remote actions. does anybody have a fix for this? @Plan B @Giuseppe Thanks in advance for any help!
So I'm trying to stream form OBS but when I'm in Shadow, my OBS hotkeys are not working. I already tried running OBS as Administrator and set as highest priority but its not working. Any Ideas? (OBS runs on my local laptop and I Stream the Shadow window/gameplay)
