I seem to be having wierd stuttering and artifacts when running YS. Not sure why, all other games run just fine, without much stuttering or artifacts. Testing my connection to Geforce NOW there is no packet loss and no jitters and everything is in recommended range.

GeForce Now has been making unwarranted downward adjustments to my streaming/resolution in some games the past week or so... I locked it to the highest quality and now it works pretty good.

[quote="Mayindu"]Why are you guys soo happy on getting old stuff... [/quote] Perhaps because a lot of people using GFN grew up hearing about games likes Ys, which formed a foundation upon which modern RPGs are resting--much like Wolfenstein and Doom did for the FPS genre--but never had a chance to play them? Or nostalgia from the older sorts who [i]did[/i] to get to play it way back when it was fresh. Making old games work, and look at least half presentable at that, on new hardware isn't easy; there's a damn good reason GOG.com is so popular, you know? And the older the game, the less likely it is that someone'll feel it worth the time and expense to bother with. So when someone [i]does[/i] go to the trouble, well, it's something to appreciate.

[quote="Mayindu"]Why are you guys soo happy on getting old stuff... [/quote] The Ys series is great, but it is already on Android and the port runs fine, especially on shield devices. It does seem unnecessary and this game requires good timing and fast reaction, so probably not good for streaming,

sorry to ask this here, but does anyone know how long it should take for me to get GeForce Now? I'm trying to be patient but a ETA or something like that would still be nice.
