Pixelish image and extreme input delay/lag in fullscreen mode

Hi there,


so I currently have an Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop with 144hz screen. But I can’t get shadow to run properly on this machine.


It is fully updated on newest windows updates, everything else is updated from AMD GU driver, ethernet everything. It is setup correctly in terms of IPv4 and there isn’t any antivirus/firewall software running, besides stock Windows stuff.

The issue is, that in fullscreen mode, there is massive input delay/lag and the stream quality is pure garbage. Just dragging a windows around, seems to lag and stutter heavily.

Interestingly, when I change to windowed mode, the stream quality seems ok and also the input lag and delay seems almost gone.

Both local Windows and Shadow are set to 144hz correctly.
I have a 1gbit connection, use ethernet gigabit, ping is 20ms, no packet loss in shadow stats panel.

Thanks for any ideas.

Can you please tell its CPU and Video card? As this seems to be a decoder issue.

Fixed it, was an issue between integrated and dedicated gpu.


Forced it now to use the dedicated GPU and it runs smooth in fullscreen.
