I had a lot of issues getting Ubuntu 21.10 working with Shadow despite it looking supported. I wrote this up into a blog post where I’ve got connections to my shadow working at least some of the time. Hopefully it helps you - let me know in the comments! https://blog.henricook.com/shadow-pc-support-for-ubuntu-2110
Using the android app on my Nvidia Shield. When I started it up last monday I got a message that the app was updating. It showed “uninstalling component 2 of 8” for at least 20 minutes. Then it out of nowhere it went back to the home screen and I could start up Shadow as normal, no further mention of any update and it seems to work fine. But an annoyance that plagued me a while ago is now back: the windows setting to make everything bigger resets back to 100% each time I boot up. I play on my tv so I want it at 125.
I have just tried to resume using Shadow after some time not connecting, as not having enough time to test/play games with requirements exceeding my local computer configuration.Opening the Xbox app, I noticed that some of the games I had previously installed needed an update.For some games, the update worked fine just selecting the game and clicking on the update button.But for 2 specific games (Minecraft Dungeons and Medieval Dynasty), the update button just did not appear to work when clicked. No specific error was reported, it just did not work... For Minecraft Dungeons, which I had just inst installed, but never actually tested, I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the game and that apparently worked.I guess I could just do the same for Medieval Dynasty, which I had started testing and for which I saved some games, as these should normally be saved in the Microsoft cloud (but I was not 100% sure).But it seems a bit overkill to have to uninstall/reinstall a game each time an update is
Hi everybody, I have the same problem as many already posted here. I think some of you already fixed the problem with different solutions. For sure it is a could way how to work around but I do not want to install ZEROTier and Virtualhere on my laptop. I alreayd reported the error to Shadow and they are working on a patch but I don’t know when it will be released. :-(So my last chance is to ask the community if anyone as another found out another way besides the “WORKAROUND”.I want to play X-Plane and trying to connect THRUSTMASTER TCA Captain Pack Airbus Edition (Joystick & Thrust controller)USB connection failed again and again every 20 to 30 sec.I already tried to log in and use BETA version but it is not better. Any little hint would be really helpful Thks a lot
Hi, I’m getting error code G-403 after login, for the past 3 days now.I’ve had a chat with support, they said it would be solved yesterday afternoon, but offcourse it’s still not working. I’ve opened a ticket yesterday (almost 24h now) no response yet. Please somebody look into this. Kind regards
Hi,i saw a lots of post related to the absence of mouse support with the Apple TV with statement saying it’s not in shadow’s hand. Post below for example.In the link below apples seems to confirm that developers have the possibility to implement mouse support since tvOS 14.https://developer.apple.com/tvos/whats-new/« New Controller SupportLet users play your game using more of their favorite PlayStation and Xbox controllers, including Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and the Xbox Adaptive Controller. Accept input from additional types of devices, like a touchpad, a keyboard, or a mouse. Access additional device attributes, such as battery level, haptics, and light. For more information, see documentation for the Game Controller framework. »A post on Reddit seems to confirm this as well:https://www.google.fr/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiSjYqDp-n1AhURtKQKHV2rBCUQFnoECAwQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2Fappletv%2Fcomments

Hi,running the current shadow (Launcher v4.29.14 | Client v3.15.16 from web site as of 2022-02-11) on MacOS Monterey 12.1 (Macbook Pro). I want to use my (oldie but goldie) Microsoft Force Feedback 2 Joystick with X-Plane. The Shadow itself is completely virgin (freshly installed and fully MS updated 2022-02-11 + current Nvidia driver 511.65).Shadow client USB support installed flawlessly, I see the joystick offered in the shadow overlay on the shadow instance and also can tick it to being forwarded as expected. So, everthing looks good, but the device simply is not recognized at all by Windows@Shadow.Currently i use the very same device successfully via VirtualHere (joystick plugged into a local linux machine running the VirtualHere server, and Windows@Shadow running the VirtualHere client). With this configuration the joystick drivers are installed by windows as soon as i connect the joystick in the VirtualHere client for the very first time, and afterwards it just works. So basicall
Bug reporting Template: Describe the bug (required) When starting the launcher, almost immediately I get a beachball that lasts for about 10 seconds. About 30 seconds later, again.

You’ll notice it immediately Application/device, official or beta, and version number (required) Both latest stable version and latest Beta (4.29.10)
Hello, everything used to work great with the same exact setup I have now. I login into shadow, put on my Quest 2 and open the Virtual Desktop app on it and then it would connect to my shadow pc. Then I'd open steam vr and be able to launch games like BnS. Starting a week or two ago, when I launch BnS it looks like it's launching, starts the up next steam box and the games loading screen and does this for a while, then goes right back to showing my desktop and steam in the Quest 2 headset. The game never launches fully. Anybody else having issues launching games from Steam in shadow pc this way? I'm not sure if this is a shadow/GPU driver issue or where to even start. Please help, I miss playing games this way which is the entire reason I have Shadow!
Hello! I am using Windows 11 (never had an issue before with Shadow). I can’t connect to Shadow anymore. Whenever I launch Shadow, it starts loading then stops at the same point forever. I was having problem before this happened, it had gotten very, very slow for some reason. Just for the record, I have waited as long as an hour to connect and it still wouldn’t. Under ‘help’ it says ‘’all service operational’. I’ve also sent my logs to the help team. I thought it might have had something to do with my own laptop. I scanned it for viruses or malware and nothing came up. I tried turning on my anti-virus and it didn’t work either. I thought maybe it was stopping the Shadow process somehow. There’s very little I can do on my end unfortunately. Is there a way to start Shadow in safe mode online? When I open up Shadow in task manager, there are four instances of it, is this normal?Internet is working fine so I don’t think it’s an issue related to that. I don’t know what else to do! Thank
Hi all,My Shadow PC used to be hosted in the AMS datacenter, but from what I’ve read it has now been migrated to a DC in Dunkirk. Since the move however, the latency as displayed in the Shadow option menu while streaming, has doubled from 12ms to 25ms. Games feel real sluggish and driving cars in CP77 for example is even harder than it was :PDoes Shadow have any plans on improving latency to the Netherlands?
Hello everyone, I have an issue when I'm using voicemeeter. I want to separate in two track my audio (for streaming, with obs). The thing is that voicemeeter doesn't output the sound (hardware output) to the A1 feedback which is set to "DigitalOutput (Nvidia High Defintion Audio)" which is the way the sound come from when not using voicemeeter.I will detailed here what I have done and conclude: When I plug my headphone to my USB microphone (which can work as an output to headphone) and set the feedback A1 to this output, voicemeeter is working exactly as intended ! I can hear both track I made I hear the virtual input Voicemeeter VAIO (my first track) but not Voicemeeter AUX VAIO (my second track). It is because I set the first track as the default playback to microsoft sound. So I guess that the sound I hear is going to Voicemeeter VAIO but also directly redirected to my local PC Also, when my headphone is plugged to my USB microphone and that I activated the A2 hardware out to th
Got a v-100 error today. Went through the trouble shooting on here by shadow which places all blame on local computer or isp.Turns out error was because shadow machine was doing a windows update. Would be nice if there was a way to check this or if this was explained as a possibility on the v-100 faq. In addition, why was a shutdown shadow machine doing a windows update?
Wonder if anyone has come across this issue, as of yesterday the dual screen option simply stopped working. Up until then it was great login, hit the button, two screens. then yesterday half way through the day it simply stopped working, it did an update, and ever since the button makes the swirl icon appear saying enabling but then nothing or it crashes the app.
Hello!This is my first time posting on this forum I have an odd problem. I play a few games on Shadow, but my main game is Apex (the others are also FPS games with the same problem). My issue is major input lag. When I first launch the game, for 30-45 seconds, no input lag, but after that, when I move my mouse, about 400ms after, the cross hair moves. The weird part is that if I tab out of the game (it’s still running) and reopen it, the lag goes away for another 30-45 seconds. Happens every time to all the games I tried (Apex, Fortnite, GTA V even an aim trainer I found on Steam).To make this more interesting, I also use GeforceNow. ZERO issues. No input lag or any problems. On my end, I’m connected via Ethernet; 500mb/s up and down. I have an i7 and a 1060 Windows machine. If anyone can help me, that would be amazing! Thanks!!
Hello there ! I’ve been using Shadow for some time now and it works fine, except for Doom Eternal which simply doesn’t work. Actually it launches but it get stuck at a black screen, right before the main menu shows up.Apparently a lot of other people had this problem and couldn’t fix it. Some people recommend to downgrade the NVidia drivers, but I’m don’t wanna try this to be honest. I already tried to reinstall GPU drivers and even restore completely my Shadow, but nothing worked for the moment. If you have figured it out, please share your solution here :) In the meantime, have a nice week-end ! :D
I’m having trouble connecting my Xbox 360 Kinect to the shadow pc it will load for like a minute and then disappear and not be connected. It’s the only thing that won’t connect and I wanna use it for full body tracking in vr :( I’ve tried reinstalling the drivers and restarting but it still didn’t work so if anyone can tell me why it won’t connect or how to fix this I would really appreciate it!
