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
Turning on shadow I'm prompted with “Choose Keyboard Layout” but cannot do anything. If I wait around 30 minutes I'm able to get in. Although, this problem keeps happening at the beginning of each session and is reoccurring. As well as that, I’m unable to turn on a second monitor. When activating it shadow will either crash or reload.
When I lock the cursor Cntrl ALt+M My mouse lags and doesnt keep up with my motions. I feel like this is a new issue and I am not sure what made this start happening. However when the cursor is not locked it performs fine. This is a major issue for me because I cant play a lot of games properly with out the cursor being locked… However the mouse does not keep up when the cursor is locked. It is not an internet issue.
Hello, So i am trying to setup my Shadow VR (installed steam and steam vr so far). I would like to access shadow on my quest through the Shadow VR Alpha app, but i have two problems: Whenever i open the app and try to enter VR on my quest i get a message that shadow is updating...after that it will redirect me to the 2D Desktop Version.At the same time while using shadow, all of a sudden i get a message that my shadow is being shut down because of inactivity even though i am still using it on my mac. And then shadow wants to do an update to switch to the offical version. I got this message several times!I already did this update 4 or 5 times and this still happens. What is wrong?
Hi, I have extreme input lag when trying to play any games, and this makes it impossible to use shadow. My connection test gave all green (40mbps download, 12mbps upload, 30ms latency) and I’m connected via ethernet through a usb c hub. Any suggestion on how to reduce the input lag? I also get a lot of stuttering when trying to play Dungeon Keeper 2 from GOG. Thanks!
Hi,I've recently gotten access to my shadows PC and am a big Trackmania fan. I am playing on a mac, using a Microsoft Xbox one controller, connected via ethernet. However, the steering feels extremely mushy and unresponsive if that makes sense. My latency visible on the shadow dashboard is constantly around 11ms so I don't think that's the problem. And the stream itself is clear and I don’t have any packet loss.My guess is that there is some weird input lag, anyone has an idea on how to possibly fix this?I’ve tried using the beta version of the launcher but the problem persist. Also updated the firmware on the controller itself.
Application type (Windows/Mac/Mobile/etc.) Shadow Client Version (Official/Beta/Alpha) Local device CPU - Intel core i5 Local device GPU - Intel Iris 1536MB Datacenter location (check status.shadow.tech) - Amsterdam Connection speed (Datacenter speed tests EU: Paris | AMS or US: CA | TX |CH | NY) - 70 UP / 30 Down Description of issue - While just having shadow active my latency sits around - 45/50 witch i find a bit high at all, but when i launch a game (AoE 4) in this example, i turn its up too 400. This actually just makes the whole servers unusable for me. Are there any solutions for this? Date when problem appeared. - Nov 24 - 2021 Did you take any action(s) which could have created this problem? If so, what? - I did not, i even closed every running program on my macbook to hope to reduce the latency Do you recall any action(s) you took after it happened? - No Do you use a VPN and/or antivirus? - No Please provide a screenshot of your shadow stats (Alt+Win+O
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
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!
