I recently found one issue related to the cursor/mouse capture in the Mac shadow client. When I am playing the game, I found sometimes when I am holding the left key on the mouse, I can not move at all and even can’t press keys on the keyboard. And the reason I found on my several Macs is, in the cursor locked mode, when my cursor is touching the window borader (even in the full screen mode), the cursor will naturally change to the resizing mouse, and if I press, hold the left click right now and then move, whole keys will be stuck and cannot move. I tried to contact the support team, but they said they don’t have such issue. So I post here to see whether you guys met the same issue and have any solutions. (Have tried disable the trackpad, enable AEserver, they both don’t work)
Shadow does not automatically detect nor save screen resolution settings. The article “Using Automatic Resolution and Frame Rate Settings in Shadow”, is invalid as “Safe Display Mode” (which must be manually enabled every time), automatic resolution settings both do not work , and there are no manual resolution/framerate settings in the launcher. I’ve tried the released and beta launchers. NVIDIA control panel is able to detect my native resolution.
I'm using Shadow on a mac and yesterday upgraded to Catalina (10.15). Now COD-Warzone is acting weird. If I lock the cursor the mouse doesn't work, only the trackpad works which I don't want to use during play. If I unlock the cursor my character looks either straight up or straight down and spins around. Any suggestions?
Hey everyone I can't believe I'm the only one having this problem, so I thought I'd ask here. I'm havint this relatively well documented problem of installing a game from the Windows Store, uninstalling it, but the space not being reclaimed from the C: drive. The space is taken up in the C:/Program Files/WindowsApps folder, and on my machine at the moment that's running at about 200GB. There is a workaround which involves taking ownership of the folder so you can give yourself delete permissions and manually delete the files, but this doesn't work on the Shadow PC, because they seem to restrict your ability to make these changes. I reached out to Shadow support, and they suggested resetting my Shadow PC, but that isn't really going to work. This is a consistent issue with the Windows Store, so if we reset then we're just going to have the problem as soon as I install and uninstall a game again. I know this for certain because I had the problem before... my Shadow PC was reset for
Hi there, I hope you guys can give me some advice. Whenever I hook up my Nacon Unlimited Controller on my Shadow Ghost the input lag increases. So when I start it reacts directly without lag, after 1 minute the lag is noticeable, after 2 minutes the lag is starting to get annoying, after a few minutes more the game is unplayable. Disconnecting the USB and plugging it back in repeats the cycle. So it starts with direct and the lag increases as the time goes by. I have this problem on several games I play with the controller. Can someone shed some advice on this problem? Using a Ghost by the way and the controller is connected to the USB 3.0 ports
So I use a Windows 10 pc right now to connect, but I was wondering about using Ubuntu so get better performance of the base machine. i use a Xbox One controller with the wireless usb dongle and usb headset etc. How much stuff will actually work like controller etc using Ubuntu or would I be better off with Windows, I can’t find all that much on using Linux for the local machine.
Hey there, i have since 3-4 weeks a big problem with my shadow on osx catalina. I have 2 iMacs on different location, both are connected with ethernetcable. Both locations have 500MBits Down and 50MBits upload. When i start the shadow client i see my desktop and i can move my cursor for 5 seconds after that my cursor disapears and the stream is freezed. Now i use my osx “taskmanager” to see my cursor and restart the stream. This works for 5 seconds again. I can connect with remote desktop and it works fine, it is only the streamer that hangs. I have changed my bandwith down to 5 MBits in Shadow but no solution. I have checked the low bandwith mode and also no solution. When i change my resolution, the screen goes black and after this i have the same resolution like before. The funniest thing is, when i connect with my iPad or iPhone it works perfectly over WiFi. (Yes i already tested my Macs with Wifi ) It is realy annoying and i hope there is someone else who have the same proble
Hello. I have been really enjoying Shadow since my activation on Wednesday. I experienced really great customer customer service on a technical issue upon activation. Things have been pretty good so far. I have noticed that I am unable to type into “saving as boxes” of a specific Windows program from my mobile app on my IPhone 10. The program is Blender 2.83. (3D animation software) So far this is the only program that I have noticed such an issue on the mobile app. It’s also the program that I use the most.
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong subforum or if this has been suggested before. Given the amount of people working from home these days, it might be a good idea to have an option in the shadow app to have a user defined scheduled bandwidth cap. Being able to limit the max bandwidth shadow uses during 9 am to 5 pm for example could be incredibly useful. It can be manually adjusted for now of course, but it would be nice if we could schedule it as well.
I have 2 external hard drives plugged into my PC. My real PC detects them but Shadow PC doesn’t. I have usb peripherals turned on but nothing appears when I open the Shadow and look into the USB menu. What do I do? The external hard drives are both 1tb My Passport WD Yes, I know that external hard drives are bad without good upload speed. I’ve got it covered, 200mb/s upload speed, and even if there is some loading screen mess ups, I just really don’t care enough for that to be a big deal to me.
Hi all, I've connected my Stadia controller to laptop via USB cable and Shadow detected the controller as a stadia one. When playing battlefield 5 it is completely unplayable the right analogue stick should move the player forward and back left and right however it Scrolls so fast in all directions.I think the right analogue stick thinks it's the mouse d-pad native to the laptop, tried tweaking the ingame settings many times many ways without it working. Character seems to spin frantically in circles when using the right analogue stick on the controller. When in the Shadows Windows desktop the right analogue stick acts the d-pad which i think is causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Had the same problem with the Xbox controller not picking up on battlefield 5 but I will have to check that again but still having a problem with stadia controller. Thanks
Reinstalled Windows on a new SSD in an older PC (was a HDD and Shadow worked fine with it). I’ve done all of the updates for Windows 10, and gpu, mobo, etc. But when I launch Shadow it hangs on “Shadow is Ready”. Works on other devices. I’ve also added the inbound and outbound firewall ports, restarted countless times (both PC and Shadow), reinstalled a few times as well. What am I missing? Thanks, G

I’ve been using Shadow on my iPad Pro for a few weeks now and the experience has been amazing. however in the last few days everything loads fine but I can’t click anything on the top bar of a window if it is maximised. It is like there is an invisible bar at the top of my session that is intercepting the input. My browser is a good example where I can’t switch tabs or click on the close button. any ideas?
I have had to double my sensitivity for games like CS:GO and Fortnite and it doesn’t feel normal. This has been going on for more than a week and I addressed my problems to the support team and they just told me to get an ethernet cable. I know it’s not a latency problem because I went on GeForce Now and my sensitivity is fine, so it’s definitely a shadow problem. Please fix it, I really like shadow and I don’t want to have to switch
Because I am a idiot that wanted gamepad to work, I innstalled shadow and the the USB drivers for macOS Big Sur beta 1. The MacBook Pro in question is now stuck in a boot loop. I have looked for the driver to delete, but can not seem to find it. If you guys even remember the name of it (I can not remember, even thought I accepted the macOS secutiry prompt), that would make it easier to troubleshoot. Safe mode works. If any Qs, let me know before I have to format it. I have made Shadow aware of the issue here: https://twitter.com/itavisen/status/1276217467220578304?s=21
I hope the forums can help me. I’m seriously at the end of my rope. I use a Shadow Ghost with wired keyboard and mouse. My internet is 500 mbs wired and I’ve confirmed the modem is working completely fine. For the past week, I’ve been getting latency in the thousands CONSTANTLY regardless of peak and low times. I attached a screenshot of my control panel below. Since taking that I switched to Alpha which actually improves the situation, but there’s still enough latency to render most games unplayable. I get that Covid has been making things hard. For months now I’ve had occasional latency during peak times. But this? This is a whole new level. My datacenter is Chicago and I personally live in Kentucky, so my ping SHOULD be 40 or slightly under.
Hello all, Forgive me if this has been asked, I haven’t seen the question through searching. Like many I’ve gone beyond gaming with Shadow and downloaded a lot of my audio production software. The issue I’m having is that I cannot hear audio! I’ve tried many different settings and outputs but I cannot hear audio. I tried mostly on Pro Tools but other music production software. Does anyone have any insight?
Hi guys, I am currently working on the development of apks for android 9.0, I need to activate the VTT option (virtualization) from the BIOS, which unfortunately will not be done, since I do not know how to access lips, someone will know some way to enable the VT option, I would appreciate an answer, regards.
I’ve been having this issue everyday at least once to twice a day where I would alt+tab from any game (never chrome or discord) and the screen would turn black and freeze. After waiting a couple minutes it would never change unfreeze so I checked the statistics to see if anything was even running but the statistics all said 0 like it just decided to crash on me. Any Idea how to fix this? (I have 500mb wifi using ethernet. Also running it at 20mbps instead of 50 since I noticed it had less latency spikes that way)
Does Shadow disable auto shutdown when updating? I tried to install a Windows Update, but it didn’t work. I assume there would be prevention for that, because if there wasn’t, Shadows would shut down while updating, potentially requireing a full reset.
