Yesterday, everything was fine and my usb devices were forwarding alright. Today rolls around and they don’t work. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drives blah blah blah and nothing has seemed to work? Does anyone know if this is an issue on shadows end or is it something I can resolve?

I’ve been using shadow for a couple months now with pretty much no issues. All of a sudden my logitech g29 steering wheel refuses to be forwarded even though I have been successfully using it for a while now. I have found that the same happens when I try to select any other usb device too. I’ve tried all the troubleshooting such as resetting my settings, and uninstalling the drivers. Really don’t know what to do now so any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Been wanting to hop on FiveM with my buddies, but Shadow had other plans; 

Once I open up shadow and get started with selecting my microphone, it spins for a second, then doesn’t tick the checkbox. I’ve tried all the forums I could find but nothing is working. This also happened with my joystick too. As I stated previously, I’ve tried almost everything I could find, restarting shadow, installing an reinstalling drivers, and etc.

Hey @Salami 
There are some issues with the USB Forwarding currently. Best thing you can do for now is creating a support ticket and describing your issue. You can create a support ticket here: https://shdw.me/account → Support. For now you can use the standard microphone option available in your quick menu. If you are having trouble with using that you can check this small troubleshooting guide: https://wiki.shdw.info/w/Microphone 
 

I’m having the same problem, and it extends over 3 PCs, i’m currently troubleshoooting with Tech support, but as yet I havn’t found a solution. I’m trying to forward a steering wheel. What about you?

Bumping as same problem.

Bumping as started to experience the same problem, with the same steering wheel yesterday.

Did you get a resolution and fix it?

no fix yet but im assuming the usb fowarding is having problems so waiting may be the only option

 

USB forwarding issues for about a week (just stopped working overnight, not working at all now after months of okay usage) with the following config:

  • USB Device: SpaceMouse Compact 
  • Platform: Shadow Boost, Amsterdam
  • Host OS: macOS Big Sur - Intel
  • Problem: Device selected in forwarded devices but no longer being detected as plugged in by guest OS
  • Steps tried: Reinstallation of Shadow USB drivers, moving from MacOS Shadow app to MacOS Shadow Beta app

 

Happy to see others are having a similar issue since is suggests its not a local issue, but I’m curious where @Phobos learnt about USB issues; since I don’t see any published service status posts acknowledging a wider issue (service status: all systems are operational).

 

Same issue and looking forward for a solution in the meanwhile paying for nothing

same :frowning2:

I guess we have to wait it out as I have tried 4 different pc’s and there is the same issue all around. Doesn’t matter if its a usb stick, steering wheel, controller, or camera. None will connect and I simply cannot click on the check and nothing will happen. Very very frustrating.
