Help me get Dualshock 4 working for minecraft dungeons (Android)
Hi! Client: Android (Nvidia shield 2017) Game: Minecraft dungeons Problem: Game lacks native ds4 support. The ds4 controller works perfectly via the pc client while using extended dualshock 4 compability, sadly the android client does not support that funtion yet. Google led me to ‘ds4windows’ as the supperior solution when you want to emulate a ds4 controller as an xbox while playing windows store games, howerever the software wont detect the ds4 controller when running on shadow. Would love any and all ideas on how to get this working so that I can skip the hassle of having to connect a computer everytime we want to play this game.
Shadow streaming won't stop crash.
Hello everyone, I don’t know why, but every like 5 min, I have to do win+alt+r to make my shadow work normally because the streaming crashes. It’s strange because that’s append only when I have little ping spikes (like 5ms more than usual). Can someone tell my what to do in this case please … Thanks for your answer.
Mac OS USB forwarding drivers break bluetooth
Hi, I’m on macOS Mojave with a MacBook Pro Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015. I have a USB mouse which sort of works without USB forwarding, but noticed it definitely has hiccups (not responsive to clicking, etc) and found out that usb forwarding for peripherals should in theory resolve this. However, after installing the usb forwarding drivers, my MacBook’s bluetooth stops working. What happens: I installed the drivers. When I do this, bluetooth icon shows that it’s no longer available. This is resolved by restarting my laptop. After restarting my laptop, bluetooth is again available but it becomes unresponsive. When trying to turn on or off, it doesn’t do anything. When trying to connect to my bluetooth headphones, it won’t. Uninstalling the drivers and then restarting my laptop resolves bluetooth issues. I’ve installed, restarted, uninstalled, restarted 3 times and behaviour has repeated. So I’m fairly confident the shadow drivers are to blame. Any ideas if this is a
best device to play Shadow in 1440p at 100hz or more
Hello all, I am new to Shadow and looking forward to my activation to get started. Currently I have an Ipad Pro 2020 connected over USB-C to a Philips UltraWide supporting 1440p @ 100hz. IOS does not seem to scale well on UltraWide monitors, except of Apple TV and Netflix movies it seems to be locked at 4:3 aspect ratio. My assumption is that shadow will therefore also not work in full screen. Also it’s hard to determine if the IPad allows an output of more than 60hz. Even though the screen is 120hz of the IPad Pro. When I can start using Shadow I would love to be able to play full screen and on 100hz On my monitor. I know a 1080 is not strong enough for all games to run at 100hz, but some lighter games will do fine. What device do you recommend to connect to this monitor and to be able play shadow in 1440p @ 100hz? Thanks, tim
FPS/Hz - Shadow Infinite - Future support
Hi all, I am not too technial and experienced, so please bear with me - my questions relate to my Shadow Infinite instance Will Shadow ever be able to support 4k 120Hz and beyond? - At the moment the Shadow Ghost hardware is limited to 60hz. Is there a plan in future to move up, as having a very powerful GPU seems to be wasted at only 60Hz/60FPS? If you set screen resolution to 1,920x1,080 HD (connected to a 144Hz monitor / screen), shadow allows 144Hz - does windows automatically detect this and set the windows resolution to 144Hz? Or will you have to go in and manually change.
Hardware Keyboard on Android Device (Special Keys)
I am using an Android Box to display Shadow on my TV. It works OK. But there are some annoyances with Hardware Keyboards. Windows Key not received by the shadow VM. This is also a problem with other stuff like ALT+TAB I tested different Keyboards to validate the problem. Is this a common Problem, or is it just me? Have others had the same problem and can it be fixed?
Microphone just stopped working.
i logged onto shadow this morning and suddenly shadow cannot detect my microphone but it works on my local pc, i have all the settings in security and privacy all enabled for shadow, my mute mic button on my headset is not on and i have tried to switch to the beta and alpha builds to see if that fixes it but it doesn’t and all versions had USB peripherals turned on with the drivers installed. does anyone have any ways to fix this.
PSA: Shadow USB Input drivers will bootloop macOS Big Sur
Because I am a idiot that wanted gamepad to work, I innstalled shadow and the the USB drivers for macOS Big Sur beta 1. The MacBook Pro in question is now stuck in a boot loop. I have looked for the driver to delete, but can not seem to find it. If you guys even remember the name of it (I can not remember, even thought I accepted the macOS secutiry prompt), that would make it easier to troubleshoot. Safe mode works. If any Qs, let me know before I have to format it. I have made Shadow aware of the issue here: https://twitter.com/itavisen/status/1276217467220578304?s=21
Controller increasing input Lag (Nacon Unlimited Ghost Box)
Hi there, I hope you guys can give me some advice. Whenever I hook up my Nacon Unlimited Controller on my Shadow Ghost the input lag increases. So when I start it reacts directly without lag, after 1 minute the lag is noticeable, after 2 minutes the lag is starting to get annoying, after a few minutes more the game is unplayable. Disconnecting the USB and plugging it back in repeats the cycle. So it starts with direct and the lag increases as the time goes by. I have this problem on several games I play with the controller. Can someone shed some advice on this problem? Using a Ghost by the way and the controller is connected to the USB 3.0 ports
Mobile typing in specific program
Hello. I have been really enjoying Shadow since my activation on Wednesday. I experienced really great customer customer service on a technical issue upon activation. Things have been pretty good so far. I have noticed that I am unable to type into “saving as boxes” of a specific Windows program from my mobile app on my IPhone 10. The program is Blender 2.83. (3D animation software) So far this is the only program that I have noticed such an issue on the mobile app. It’s also the program that I use the most.
External Hard Drive
I have 2 external hard drives plugged into my PC. My real PC detects them but Shadow PC doesn’t. I have usb peripherals turned on but nothing appears when I open the Shadow and look into the USB menu. What do I do? The external hard drives are both 1tb My Passport WD Yes, I know that external hard drives are bad without good upload speed. I’ve got it covered, 200mb/s upload speed, and even if there is some loading screen mess ups, I just really don’t care enough for that to be a big deal to me.
stadia Controller - Battlefield 5 unplayable
Hi all, I've connected my Stadia controller to laptop via USB cable and Shadow detected the controller as a stadia one. When playing battlefield 5 it is completely unplayable the right analogue stick should move the player forward and back left and right however it Scrolls so fast in all directions.I think the right analogue stick thinks it's the mouse d-pad native to the laptop, tried tweaking the ingame settings many times many ways without it working. Character seems to spin frantically in circles when using the right analogue stick on the controller. When in the Shadows Windows desktop the right analogue stick acts the d-pad which i think is causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Had the same problem with the Xbox controller not picking up on battlefield 5 but I will have to check that again but still having a problem with stadia controller. Thanks
Suggested Feature: Scheduled Bandwidth Limiter
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong subforum or if this has been suggested before. Given the amount of people working from home these days, it might be a good idea to have an option in the shadow app to have a user defined scheduled bandwidth cap. Being able to limit the max bandwidth shadow uses during 9 am to 5 pm for example could be incredibly useful. It can be manually adjusted for now of course, but it would be nice if we could schedule it as well.
Hello all, Forgive me if this has been asked, I haven’t seen the question through searching. Like many I’ve gone beyond gaming with Shadow and downloaded a lot of my audio production software. The issue I’m having is that I cannot hear audio! I’ve tried many different settings and outputs but I cannot hear audio. I tried mostly on Pro Tools but other music production software. Does anyone have any insight?
Graphical glitch on games
Hello there, I am having some sort of graphical glitches when playing games and this is sth that did not happen some weeks ago. I intended to record it with screen capture but the glitch is gone on the videos so my only chance to share with you what I am experiencing is recording it via the camera of my phone. I know it does not seem very noticeable in the videos but I ensure that is very annoying. It is like all the graphic edges get illuminated when I move the camera. If I keep it still, no apparent problem. https://streamable.com/da3anp https://streamable.com/4yc5op I tried to reduce the connexion bandwidth, "prefer reliability" over speed, change from official app to beta, update the graphic card drivers etc but no luck. Any idea what could be causing this? Windows Official and Beta apps intel NUC8i7 BEH Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 Datacenter: Amsterdam Connection speed 250/450Mbps
The Good Days
Just thought I would share my thoughts on how shadow has seemed different lately. I have been actively using shadow for around a year and a half now, but recently (around the last 3 months) I have been getting unplayable connections. I average around 120 MBPS download speed and around 90 MBPS download speed with a wired connection so it surprises me how laggy shadow has been. I used to use it with no issue and had an amazing experience but now I seem to be getting spikes every 20 seconds even though I tried setting my bandwidth all the way to 10. Wondering if anyone else has a premium connection and is experiencing this issue or knows how to solve it. Thought I would try the forums instead of contacting support for the 20th time.
Need help fixing constant mouse latency that has been happening for the past week
I hope the forums can help me. I’m seriously at the end of my rope. I use a Shadow Ghost with wired keyboard and mouse. My internet is 500 mbs wired and I’ve confirmed the modem is working completely fine. For the past week, I’ve been getting latency in the thousands CONSTANTLY regardless of peak and low times. I attached a screenshot of my control panel below. Since taking that I switched to Alpha which actually improves the situation, but there’s still enough latency to render most games unplayable. I get that Covid has been making things hard. For months now I’ve had occasional latency during peak times. But this? This is a whole new level. My datacenter is Chicago and I personally live in Kentucky, so my ping SHOULD be 40 or slightly under.
