Hi,Long time client, faced today an issue I’ve never faced before. When I’ve tried login in to my account, had to face the new two-step authentication method. This is fine. What is UNACCEPTABLE is the screen saying that I had to “wait for an available slot”. The counter says that the “estimated remaining time” is 20 minutes, although it has fluctuated down and up for the past few minutes. The lack of waiting time is a critical factor that made me jump from other cloud providers to Shadow. Therefore, I would like to be know if this is due to a non-permanent and fixable system issue, or is this to be expected again in the future. If the latter is the case, I will be forced to search for alternative cloud gaming methods and would be very sorry to leave a service which I am very happy up to this point.
I have several autostart programs defined on my Shadow (Steam, Discord, Screenshot Tools, Auto Updating tools etc.)I figured out when starting the Shadow via the Launcher and waiting in the screen till it automatically connects to the shadow, in the most times the programs listed for autostart doesn't launch.But when starting the Shadow via the Launcher and go back to the Home screen to wait till it says “ready” + waiting like 2-3 minutes before connecting, 90% of my autostart programs are launched.Is it possible that connecting during windows login while those apps are starting, some Shadow services are interrupting the autostart?Is there a way to fix this?
The speed is high but latency averages around 45 ms with couple of seconds extra. Before going to spend more money on crap wifi amplifier looking for recommendation.Would like to connect direct, but router in wife office, and don’t care to be in there trying to use.Ordered a scanner for 3d and was going to use with Shadow and usb forwarding, but latencymaybe too high.No hurry. Scanner was Kickstarter project, will be month before it comes. I love Shadow so far.Just not wanting to buy laptop to run scanner. Already too much money spent for hobby use.
I use port forwarding (which I have working) and my device shows up in the file explorer as my D drive, but when I go to open it, I get a dialogue with the header, "Location is not available," and next to a big red X, it reads, "D:\ is not accessible." 1-2 lines below, there is another message that says, "Access is denied." Now this message is self explanatory, but I still looked it up. Everything said to go to Properties > Advanced and change the owner (which I did). I also set all the groups to have all permissions (Full control). I still get the message even after restarting my local device and my Shadow PC. How do I fix this?
Hi Folks,as I saw in one of the latest changelog TrackIR is now supported. Unfortunately I am not able to see my TrackIR device in the list of available usb devices to forward. I am using the latest beta launcher on Mac OS. Anybody here who gets trackir to work without usb server and these stuff? Christian
Shadow on Chromebook Question!I have the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook and was wondering if anyone knows any alternative to shadow on Chromebook besides using the android app? I’ve seen some posts of people using the Linux version of shadow for their Chromebook and apparently it’s the greatest thing to use. However I’m a bit confused on how to do all that and was hoping if someone here could direct me in the right direction if possible.
I have several games that I can't play due to controller issues. In one the hands are stuck at my ankles and won't separate the other the mapping flipped and I can't get the configure to work or the setting worked out. Other games no issues. I load the games on my pc and the controls work fine. I used shadow and they are not playable and are the same games. Example Derail Valley controls all backwards. Phamaphobia hands stuck together at my feet. I've tried setting configuration, add or remove driver and nothing fixes them. Any help would be great.

Steam won’t update New World. According to Steam help I’m experiencing “a connection time out error while trying to install New World. This error indicates that your computer is not able to communicate with the content servers in your selected region.”Steam help suggested that I refresh the local network, but I can’t do that on Shadow. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
I have really been enjoying my shadow for the few months I've had it, but today is day 3 of no access because it says "your shadow is unavailable at the moment ". They said it showed my shadow was stuck in reset mode and they have factory reset it twice.ike I said today is the 3rd day, I missed a tournament, missed out on things with family and I haven't had a response today :( I'm really bummed and have started comparing companies and looking for an alternative even though I really dont want to :( anyone have the same issue that may have a fix for it? Thank you :)
Got on Shadow for the first time in a week and it was updating. Actually, as I'm typing this...it's still updating.. not sure what the hold up is. However, where can I find the most recent update changelog? Also, side note for anyone actually AT shadow reading this... Please update the information required to create chat on forum as you only offer one type of shadow now and I am still currently not away of where my shadow server is. I was told Texas but I'm pretty sure it's in NYC. Please advise!

Hello how is everyone ? We are trying to play phantom covert ops on Quest 2 and as soon as we click on it I get kicked to ask to sign into FB. Here’s the thing I’m already signed in on a phone and when it asks me to confirm by sending code it says to yahoo.com well my e mail is gmail.com. Also that the only VR game that does it and it always worked until now. Thank you very much for the help. Really appreciate it. Take care 😀
So there was an update to the beta launcher the other day and since then I keep getting a popup telling me how great my connection is at the top of my screen. This is irritating because I record footage using Shadow and I don’t need to be told every time there’s a slight hiccup with my internet. Why on earth is there no way to disable this?
