Why Shadow is not as good as it claims to be
A while ago I already went into the enormous security problems of Shadow, which you can read about in detail here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/10cjwnj/shadow_the_huge_security_problem_no_one_seems_to/Supplemental update to my report a month later: https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/10cjwnj/comment/j87ckxz/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3 In summary, the issue was that Shadow has by far the worst security measures imaginable in 2023. Especially when you consider that it's an entire computer in the cloud and a product that's also aimed at influencers and business users. Shadow hasn't managed to log me out of all my devices for 37 days after a security breach in my system, but continues to make me pay for it, even though I haven't had access to my Shadow since. But not only the security is a big problem with Shadow, but also the customer support and the non-transparent employees "behind the scenes". After 37 days of correspondence with Shadow sup
When i enable duel monitors without 4:4:4 everything is laggy
So when i enable duel monitors it well be normal for a few mins then all of the sudden shadow becomes very slow in usage stats it shows 60 fps but what im seeing is 3-7 fps.

Move my server back
I recently had my shadow hosted access in the datacenter in Dallas Texas, then it was moved to a datacenter in California. I require my server in Texas for a multitude of reasons, namely the landmass center location. These servers are most likely where they are instructed to be, on purpose. You gave us the option to put in a zip code of where we would like our server, but it’s been moved.In California, it’s quite useless when attempting cross play using parsec. The location is terrible if you have friends from the east coast and live somewhere on the west coast.
Latency Issues still

Why do I get an error when I try to add storage to my Shadow computer?
Hello! Whenever I try to add storage to my Shadow computer, I get a message on the checkout page that says “An error occured updating your subscription, please try again later.”Has anyone else seen this/know how to fix it? Thanks!
Shadow moved my instance, can it be moved back?
I have my Shadow instance located in Texas for a specific reason, but it was auto-migrated to Montreal, Canada. Contacted support and they said they were unable to move the instance back, and that the instance was migrated to give me better latency. While I do get better latency now, I specifically chose the Texas server so that my friend and I can play local non-networked games with equal latency (he lives on the west coast, I live on the east coast).Is it true that there’s no way to migrate my Shadow instance back? I’ve been subscribed for three months and regularly connecting to Dallas servers with no issue, and if it can’t be moved back I don’t have a reason to keep my subscription.
Latency not going below 40
One day three weeks ago I tried to connect my Thrustmaster throttle and joystick. I got a warning saying the device did not connect. I did some research and came to the conclusion that my latency needs to be below 30. My latency was 40 or above. I tried everything which includes re setting my shadow computer. If someone could help that would be amazing
MacOS BETA download broken
Application type Mac Monterray 12.6.3 Shadow Client Version Official Local device CPU Intel i5 Local device GPU Intel HD Graphics 6000 Datacenter location DC Connection speed (Datacenter speed tests Your links are broken I can tell from the related topics that there is some major issues with USC/Peripherals and MacOS going on for what years? That is how I started my Quixotic adventure. I have a mouse with extra buttons to configure and Shadow does not seem to recognize them or I am otherwise unable to key bind them. I will look for an answer to that but I noticed when trying to download the MacOS Beta (which was recommended) that my Macbook is rejecting the download as broken and unfixable. Any intel on that?That then led me to the “Help Center” where I could not find a single article on any-keyword I could think of. So the “Help Center” has no articles on any subject no matter what. Look at the script and Dev Notes I could not see any issues for my browser. Then the 3rd pa

ipad pro with external monitor and and mouse
So basically, i have my iPad Pro set up as a client for the shadow pc. I have it connected to Ethernet and a usb hub that connects a mouse, keyboard and audio interface to my iPad. Additionally i have a external display attached to my iPad. Here is the issue: whenever im in shadow and i have it set up on my external display, whenever i start moving my mouse i can see both the cursor inside shadow move as well al the pointer of my iPad (the cursor on the external display and the pointer on the native display) this wouldn’t be an issue where it not that: first, the cursor only moves as long as the pointer has space (aka when the pointer reaches the top of the iPad display it stops moving and so does de cursor) and second the pointer actually interacts with everything that is on the native display, so if i move the cursor to high up it reaches the top of the iPad and it brings down the notification/Lock Screen and kicks me out of shadow. Please help!!
