I cannot forward my Oculus Quest via a USB 3.0 port and cable to use Oculus Link and play Rift games. Any ideas? Does the beta version of Shadow for the Quest has been released yet? I tried all the cables, all the ports, updates and reset that I could. Thank you for your help.
I have tried previous suggestions of setting my local pc to 5.1 and leaving my shadow pc on stereo setting (cant be changed) This, however, just outputs the front right and left channels to the rear speakers, not true surround sound. I've also tried a Creative Soundblaster external usb sound card to convert 5.1 PC to Dolby digital and activated it as a usb device in shadow, but this does not work either. Further to that, Windows sonic and Atmos for headphones seem to not work correctly. I have tried activating on both Shadow and my local pc and there is no effect at all. Other than using Steam Link, has anyone managed to get ANY form of surround sound, with the correct 5.1 channels using their shadow either on Windows or Android? Or even any kind of of surround virtualisation? I love this service but this is the one and only issue frustrating me at the moment! Cheers.
I have honestly had nothing but problems lately using shadow. The only time i can even get shadow to even be usable in terms of input lag and latency is between the hours of 1 am and 6 am CST. These are obviously not ideal times which is extremely frustrating. The issue is not my internet either, I have 300+ mb/s bandwidth with relatively high upload speeds as well, and a direct ethernet connection. I cant understand why this throttling is happening, I keep seeing the same BS copy paste excuse about “the path for internet is different for everybody” getting thrown around on here, but I really need some real answers. I want to like this program and it used to function well, but i cant warrant spending money on something i cant use for much longer.
So I have been using Shadow for awhile now and it has been great but this Thursday apparently my Shadow went belly up. Opened up a ticket on it and was told it needed to be escalated to maintenance. Well not a word from them to this day. I'm just wondering if there is a potential ETA on this issue, I have already had to cancel 2 planned streams due to this issue. Shadow has been stellar up until now, but this customer service is starting to worry me. Regards Joel
Windows 10 client Shadow Client Version Official Local device CPU: Intel i5 6500T Local device GPU Intel HD Graphics 530 Datacenter location Chicago Connection speed 600 MBS The main idea of this post is to to help me understand things I can try to reduce the latency to Chicago, I live in Minnesota, and am on the Chicago server. I consider get just over 50 MS latency. When I test New York, I am always just over 30 MS. I contacted support officially, and there is a way to move me to New York but it requires activating a new account and what not. I am much closer physically to Chicago. In general, my service is playable and I like it, but I don’t understand why New York would be better when it is further away. What would folks suggest to improve my latency to Chicago?
I was wondering if there is a way to choose which games show up on the launcher within the Shadow app on my Shield TV. I can't seem to find any setting for it. I can always revert to the desktop and use the Shield app as a mouse but that's an inconvenient first world problem right? Seriously anyway I can get the games I want on the launcher?
Mbps download: 428.4 Mbps upload: 18.3 I can run shadow on the 70 Mbit/s smoothly, but my gf on the other hand has Mbps download: 65-70 And she needs to run shadow on 5 Mbit/s with low bandwidth mode enabled. I want to see if any users have anything in between these, so i can see if and how i should go about upgrading her set up with minimal cost. Thank you.
Playing Destiny 2, I would enter an area of possible high activity and the screen would freeze or almost freeze, which is something that hasn’t happened to me using Shadow. Over a year ago, this would happen in the beta stage of GeForce Now, especially when there was high activity. It no longer does. After this happened in Shadow (it has happened twice), I switched to Nvidia GeForce Now (I have the Founder’s edition), and continued the same activity with no problems. I believe this could be a problem since I am paying almost ten times the amount monthly with Shadow.
I’ve recently noticed that my bandwidth usage (Win+Alt+O) is consistently showing me half the max allocated amount. In this particular case I was playing Shadow of War (at 1600p) and showing 30-35mbps (when I have at max 70mbps). If I reduced the maximum to 50mbps (for example), I noticed the bandwidth usage stats would reduce to 20-25mbps - meaning half the actually max amount. This seems strange and I am unable to understand whether this is just a bug with the stats or my bandwidth is really getting cut in half. Anyone else experienced this? Please notice I am pretty sure I was seeing the full bandwidth usage (60-70mbps) when I was playing my previous game a while back,
Hi, I am a Shadow Boost subscriber living in FLORIDA. NY is my datacenter. I’ve been frustrated by the high ping on my shadow which happens quite frequently. MY IP is COX and am on 150mbps plan. I am getting ping spikes of 8142ms and it is always more than 1000ms when i’m in game. This is making my gaming experience suck. I’m using a MBP 2015 with mac os Catalina 10.15.5. I’m using it on a 5ghz wifi router although my desk is right beside the router. I have tried trace route on my cmd prompt and am getting ping in range of 40-45ms which is decent, so I don’t understand what the issue is . I’ve tried restarting my router multiple times, rebooting my mac and shadow client to no avail. Can anyone suggest any fix for this problem ? Stay Safe
So I’ve been using Shadow for a while now, and overall very happy with it. However, there are some moments during my gameplay where I experience a big quality drop, which results in a huge lag spike. Obviously, when this happens in a shooter, it can really mess up your game. Its also not game dependant, as I also play some casual Sea of Thieves, and it happens there as well. I don’t know if its something to do with my connection, but I would like to troubleshoot it somehow. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
