The latest update to my Shadow installation on macOS to Client v.3.9.5 and App Launcher 4.22.9, which auto-loaded today as I was attempting to access Shadow, seems to have broken support for the SteelSeries Nimbus+ controller, whether via Bluetooth or plugged in. The connection was working fine before this update. I tested the controller with non-Shadow games and it’s definitely working and connecting with the Mac.

I can confirm this behavior. I just bought a Nimbus+ specifically for Mac gaming but no luck. Definitely works with other games.
Same issue here. I’m using the Nimbus+ on Mac and the controller is no longer showing up in Shadow after the update. I’ve tried to forget the device in Bluetooth settings and re-pair. Shows up and works fine locally on my Mac but not in Shadow.
Hope this is on somebody’s radar for a fix soon. There may not be many of us Nimbus+ users, but it was working before and isn’t now. Was really enjoying Shadow with the Nimbus+, but this is weeks now and still no fix.
Since my last post, learned of Shadow’s bankruptcy filing. Guessing the last thing on the team’s minds right now is fixing issues with niche controllers used in macOS. Oh, well, it was fun for the few weeks it was useful. My timing was just bad, I guess.
Thanks for reporting this bug about your SteelSeries Nimbus+ Controller.

How do they know if it fixes your issue if you never try it? Why would they release it if they don’t know if it fixes the issue? If nobody ever tests it and confirms that the fix works, then could be a while before they release the ‘fix’.
Here’s the message from the pinned messages in the #alpha channel on discord, for you. I would still recommend that you join that channel on discord, though.
