Shadow loads windows but not the game
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?

Controller issues on android tv
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.

Mouse Accuracy Issues?
Is anyone else having mouse accuracy issues? The mouse pointer seems to be overcompensating the movement from my end to the machine on the other end. Just trying to smoothly move the mouse pointer from the top left corner to the bottom right corner of my monitor is difficult. Accuracy when playing FPS games suffers quite a bit from this. I’m constantly messing around with sensitivity.I’m on a 1gb down and 40mb up wired internet connection. I’m also on a mac studio with an m1 ultra and 128gb ram. I’m on the power upgrade as well. I’m also on the east coast which is where the data center is. I also have a steele series gaming mouse and an oversized mouse pad. I feel like I have optimal settings. And yet with all that I am still unable to get smooth and accurate movement with my mouse.

Access Denied To External Storage Device
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?
Some of that native driver support would be appreciated
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
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.
Does anyone else have an issue with the lock cursor feature?
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.
Are you there? (doesn't detects input)
Sometimes I have to wait for people, so I have just to stay online and wait. To make sure that it doesn’t shutdown I play around a bit so keyboard and mouse getting detected every several minutes. But sometimes I also miss this a bit, until the message appears which is questioning: “If I’m still there”.The only issue is that it often doesn’t recognizes my following activity again. The popup stays, irrelevant of mouse or keyboard activity until the shadow-instance starts to shutdown.I’ve tried to reconnect, even close both Shadow Applications (ShadowLauncher, ShadowStream-Client), but in that case it even can’t reconnect anymore until it also says that it shutting down.Device: Mac Mini M1 (Macmini9,1)OS: macOS Monterey Version 12.4Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Shadow Media Keys act like an autoclicker when pressed once
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!

Hello, I have an issue with the entire desktop and a game first it will be 60 frames per second completely smooth and then after about maybe 10 to 15 seconds it just stutters and sorta pixelates maybe 10 15 FPS but when I'm in a game or on the desktop if I click the shadow quick menu and click out of it the FPS goes back to normal and then it does the same thing over and over again. Would anyone know the problem? Thanks in advance
Having issues with ShadowPC on Mac despite having good speed and connection.
Everytime I start up Shadow my connection is saying "Laggy" and also my cursor is laggy. When I go to load up to play a game it is unplayable due to the lag. Closing Shadow and starting it back up doesn't seem to help at all. Please help.
