It seems to be random. Some nights I have a flawless experience. Others I get periodic sharp connection loss spikes. everytime I switch over to my actual PC and test the connection everything is fine (usually… sometimes it shows for itself but many times not) I’ll run several tests. Speed tests, packet loss tests. Everything is fine. It just occurs on the shadow. I’ll ping someone 400 times on my regular PC and I won’t have a single packet missed. And then I’ll switch over to my shadow and it’s back to huge lag periodically every 3 minutes or so. is there a setting I can switch to to prevent this? also can someone explain to me the bandwidth thing to me? I’ve read a lot about it but my question is never answered after reading it. Essentially what I’m wondering is, can I lower my bandwidth to sacrifice quality for less lag? My bandwidth autos to 70. If I dropped it down to 15 or something would it help lag? honestly besides what I’ve mentioned I have a good experience. My latency is a
Question for someone, so I installed shadow on my nvidia shield, I load shadow, sign in, shows my games, Destiny 2, and COD. When I click on a game using my gamepad it loads the game and shows the desktop. It doesn't load the game but I hear the music playing and have no way to maximize the window because I am using a gamepad. I can hear the music of the game and see it down below but I have no way to pull up the window via controller. Also I load call of duty, it loads shadow windows desktop but just sits there. It seems to me it should load the game and not just drop me to windows. Any ideas? Any ideas why it's not loading the game and taking me to the shadow desktop rather then loading the game?
Hello, I have already asked support about this but they weren’t of any help. When I press my Next song button on my media keys, it gets stuck infinitely skipping the songs like i have an auto clicker clicking next song. I have tried both stable and beta clients on win 10 but neither fixed the issue. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Has anyone found out, how to ALT-TAB in Windows (in the Shadow Instance), while using the Mac Client?It really annoys me to use Windows key to break out of full-screen apps and also not able to switch between apps via ALT-TAB.I can’t even use the TaskView (WIN+TAB), because WIN is the CMD key in Mac and the equivalent to ALT+TAB for MacOS (CMD+TAB).I remember that I tried to workaround this 2019 with some AutoIT-Script I build, but that wasn’t also not a perfect solution. But on my current fresh Shadow Installation, no such scripts and tweaks are installed.Key Remapping doesn’t work and also hotkey-alteration via BetterTochTools wasn’t successful either.So this bug seems to still existing since 2018.How are you (the other users) solving it, what are your workarounds?
Hi.I got my Shadow yesterday and wanted to log into a game I had not played since ages, but I am failing completely in entering my email for login. I use a windows keyboard on the Mac. The Alt and AltGROn Windows it is Alt keys are Opt on the Mac.Windows with German keyboard layout: AltGr+Q: @ sign (AltGr is the right Alt button, only on German keyboards, to reach some third layer signs)Mac, exactly the same keys: Opt+Q: Close current window similar to Alt+F4 on Windows.Nevertheless: nothing works when I am in Shadow. I can type an @ neither with the Mac nor the Windows key combination, so I cannot log in. So the most imporatant question: How do I get to the special keys on my keyboard that require the right Alt button The other thing: When I am in the Shadow, I would like it to be completely Windows and all commands shall be interpreted as commands to the VM, Alt+Tab should change between windows on the VM, it actually changes between the Shadow (which runs in full frame) and anoth
Hello, I hope you can help. My connection works great but sometimes, often when I switch application within Shadow, the screen starts to blur on and off approx. every other second. The on/off blur stops when I click on the Quick Menu. Does anybody have an idea why is this and how to fix it? IT happens randomly and always when I switch applications, for example, If i’m playing a game in Full screen and I switch to a web browser momentarily. Thanks,C
Hello. I bought my Shadow Power Upgrade in France, but I'm from Romania. Your platform works great, only the ping leaves a lot to be desired and I don't know how to solve this. I have the best internet in my country, 1Gb speed to be exact. I also play via wi-fi which gets a maximum of 200 mb, but that's not a problem because it's enough. I wanted to know if you will ever make a center in Romania or at least closer to Romania?
I am using Shadow on an Android TV.I use latest Shadow OFFICIAL version 3.12.1. Controller is recognized by the TV and Shadow Launcher. However when starting a game in Shadow it cannot be used, no matter which game I try. Android even asks me if I allow Shadow to use it, and I allow it. Any tip would be appreciated.
Intel’s Puma 6 chipset is defective (hardware defect) creating network latency spikes and Network jitter. This is caused by the puma getting overloaded by shadows consistant data stream and running a high priority maintinance tread to clear the processor. If you have one of these Intel Puma Modems please replace immediately. Your internet will thank you!

i have had an issue after a recent update of shadow where ingame the sens its still the same as before and so if my dpi but for some reason it feels like it is slower, much slower. Any of you have dealt with this issue?. I had to put my sens in game up and still cant fight my right sens because i was already used to playing at the sens that was set before the update that messed it up.
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?

Shadow, I love youjs, besides the mayhem that's collided, I'm still by your side, so help me out..I love how from day one I was able to plug in any controller dating back to Xplore GH2 controller and it was natively compliant. Im not sure how your logistics work with the driver emulation or however I would like for my native computer to be able to recognize my dual sense, not for haptic feedback, that'd be wonderful, but so i games i play like PS NOW will recognize it as a ps controller, if not i gotta use DS4windows, which is awesome in its own way can we have to access to some drivers, ideas, or what to help with that ? and lastly, i bought Xbox one wireless adapter, and it picks up my controllers, other than when i have my RB4 guitar, plugged in, it doesn't recognize it as a guitar controller like the xplorer does, i know this isn't wildly something that needs the attention of the masses, but ive been trying to play rb vr for so long, and i have everything running excellent, other

In the beta version the volume is fixed, but then their is an other problem.. there is a cracking sound all the time. So with all the other problems i read about the microphone.. it isn’t fixed yet :(.
Hello. I am running Shadow on the latest version of OSX. I just bought it. I noticed early on that the default sensitivity on the computer was more than two times normal compared to both GeForce Now and my normal PC. I am using the same pointer sensitivity as my PC. I have gigabit internet and am connected to it through an Ethernet cable, so that is not the issue. I also have very low amounts of latency when connected to my blade. Any fixes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It did it twice now it wont ever get to the bios screen, basically bricked my computer.After unplugging and plugging various usb devices finally was able to boot, but I don't want to run shadow again until I know how to fix it. Please help
