cannot log in via my ipad, however i do have access on iphone. stuck in a loop
The app on my iPad constantly will have it stuck on “you must log back in” though it’s acting as tho I AM logged in and it says to “start shadow”No matter if I clear the app cache, delete and remove and re download it’s stuck there.although it doesn’t actually have me logged in, and clicking the option to log out doesn’t do anything. The only way to get any other option to come up, is to turn off data and Wi-Fi and then click on the app, which then I can log in via browser… if I turn back on Wi-Fi and cellular, it prompts me to log in via browser but once logged in kicks me back to homescreen and the same loop repeats of it saying “you must log back in” edit: to add I did try power cycling device several times, and I also clicked “reset shadow” on another browser in my shadow account to no avail

Help. Broken shadow, No connection to Cloud possible, black screens in windows and android
Anyone has a solution.I only get black screens and no connections after trying to connect to Shadow.Windows app = black screen after startup.Android app = black screen after ‘ wait for video ‘ message.Restarted and reloaded the app. All are latest versions.Internet at home is 300 down and 35 up with 1 ms latency.No bg apps running.The answers from Shadow have been vague and I suspect there are major issues in their service. Unfortunately I dont pay 30 bucks for a non working service.Thnx. Anyone?P
Shadow Launcher is grey but I can press stuff
Every time I open up shadow to start streaming it won’t show anything on the tab, it’s just grey, but if I click around I can press some buttons.Grey Shadow LauncherI tried un-installing and re-installing a bunch of times in different ways but it didn’t fix it. I tried digging around the files to see if I could find anything and I found a thing that opened up shadow and a console showing a bunch of errorsErrors?I haven’t been able to find anyone with the same problem but I don’t think I looked up the right stuff. Hope someone knows how to fix this.
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
on using apk on fire tv
So I'm very new to this. I have the app downloaded and running on my fire TV, loads the desktop fine. I'm using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse with a USB dingle plugged into the TV. Works fine as far as I can tell. I used it to input my validation code. The issue I'm having is actually using the shadow. I can see the mouse moving but clicking or typing doesn't appear until I leave the app and open it back up. Any suggestions?
Overnight FPS has dropped to 7fps doing simplest of tasks.
Last night, playing Civ VI was fine. This morning I noticed the game crashed three times. When I got into eh Quick Menu, I notice that the client is running at 7-9fps just on the game menu. Trying to quit the game causes it to freeze for about 10 seconds, then go into a not responding state. I saw briefly that the CPU was stuck at 100%Recently I see that the GFX car has changed from a 1080, to a Quadro. Which I thought was generally for design, rather than gaming.The feeling that Shadow’s machines are lagging behind in what is considered a gaming machine. The only thing that makes these mahcines technically “Gaming” is the gfx card. Now it seems I’m (trying to) play games on a CAD PC.EDIT: fps in windows is 3fps.
Is anyone else having performance issues today? Peak times?
I played late into the night last and barely had any issues at all. Got up and had my coffee and jumped on at about 11 AM Central and been trying to play off and on till now at 4PM central and I’ve had lag issues all day. Granted, I’m playing Skyrim VR using Virtual Desktop, but yesterday was mostly fine. SO I’m guessing that I’m trying to play during my data center’s peak time and am seeing a performance hit from it. I did a speed test on my Oculus Quest and I’m pulling down over 100 Mbps and the shadow is uploading over 100 so I think it has to be performance issues from so many users on at the moment. Anyway, if someone can give me some advice on how to fix it, it would be much obliged. My activation was yesterday so I hope this isn’t the norm. :/
Keyboard "Next song" button glitch
Hey all,First of all I’ve always been satisfied with shadow, I’ve had mine for about a year and it has always worked fine.But recently i’ve uncovered a (very) minor bug with spotify (or at least it does with spotify, i’m pretty sure it has to do with the way shadow processes keyboard inputs).My keyboard, a very cheap membrane Zalman keyboard from an old combo, has media keys. They work as you’d expect. I’ve always used shadow with spotify, but since I have a good enough connection I prefer having 2 instances open, one on my desktop, and one on shadow. The point is to have it play on the real computer for better audio quality, and control it with spotify connect on my shadow. However, for a few weeks my “Next” key seems to glitch in shadow, it skips tracks indefinitely like if I kept it pressed. This doesn’t seem to happen when I only have it running on shadow, but I definitely feel the drop in audio quality :/ Does anyone else have this problem ? If so did you find a fix ?
Issue with wired Xbox 360 controller on macOS, playing CoD
Hi there, I'm stumbling upon a weird issue here. My wired Xbox 360 controller is recognized in Shadow but does not work in all games. In Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) the controller works for browsing the menus, but in-game it doesn’t. In Counterstrike the controller doesn’t work at all, and in Rocket League it works fully. Anyone here has had a similar issue? I'd love to get some tips. My setup: Macbook Pro 2015; Shadow Boost Xbox 360 Wired Controller Thank you so much in advance!
Issue with additional storage
Hi, I have some issues with my additionnal storage, here my configuration : Windows Application Official version Local device CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz Local device GPU : Nvidia GeForce 660M Datacenter location : Paris Connection speed (Paris) : 51Mb/s Description of issue : First of all, 2 days ago, my shadow freezes and crashed all the shadow with many problems to reconnect. I realized it was my additionnal storage which caused the issue each time i tried to write on it. I wanted to erase anything on it and formate but it never ends and freezes all the shadow. Now, my additionnal storage is not usable at all. Other: Date when problem appeared : 10/12/2020 Did you take any action(s) which could have created this problem? If so, what? Maybe installation of Cyberpunk? Do you recall any action(s) you took after it happened? Uninstall Steam, change directory, erase additional storage Disk Do you use a VPN and/or antivirus? No Thank you
Audio lag on iPadOS
If I run Shadow on my Mac, video/audio is *perfect* whether on wireless or wired. If I run on my iPad Pro (latest 12.9” M1), the video and input is perfect, but the audio is delayed by a solid 0.5 - 1 second. I’ve tried on wireless and even wired, same result, which leads me to believe it’s an iPadOS-specific issue. Has anyone else run into/noticed this?
Launcher does not start on Surface Pro 7 and Asus VivoBook Flip
So I’m trying to install the Shadow Launcher-client on both of the devices listed in the topic. On both of them I just get a small purely black window which stays there until I kill the Shadow process in the task manager (there are 4 sub-processes to Shadow).The laptop (which also has a touchscreen) is running on Windows 11 Pro, the Surface Pro 7 on Windows 10 Pro. The problem is both with the standard and the beta launcher. My stationary PC, Android tablet and Android phone all work perfectly. Also tried a tip I found here using the Windows command restoring some winmgmt repository, but it didn’t have any noticeable effect.Any help is hugely appreciated! :-)
Shadow Ultra Gameplay Bugs
My Shadow Ultra has the tendency to completely shut off my mic on every single application I use this includes GTA 5 Online, Red Dead Online, FiveM, Discord and many more.I have no idea why any of this happens and it seems the only way that I can even hear audio sometimes is to completely shut down my computer and Shadow then restart both of them. If anyone else runs into this issue please let people know. Also if anyone here plays RedM and is unable to even launch the application apparently that problem has been going on for years with shadow in both versions of the program both Shadow Ultra and Shadow Boost.
