Hello! I think active users of Treshbox have long been aware of devices such as the Nvidia Shield and Nvidia Shield Tablet, which are considered some of the best portable gaming devices that have ever been created.
Nvidia attracts customers not only with the flagship characteristics of devices, but also with some exclusive devices such as streaming games from PC to device, Half Life 2 and Portal, and some others. And I'm here to ruin some Nvidia exclusives. Let's destroy them together.
Shield Tablet and Steam Big Picture - a specially redesigned Steam client interface for convenient operation with a gamepad
Today we’ll talk about such an allegedly exclusive feature as streaming games from PC to tablet. When gamers watched reviews of these devices, they already dreamed about how to lock themselves in the toilet with Shield and play the latest hits. This is complicated by the fact that your computer must have a video card from Nvidia and have good technical characteristics, and the game must support a gamepad.
My method allows you to stream games from any PC with a power (within reason) to a video card not from Nvidia. In addition, you can run not only games that support the gamepad, but also those that do not support it. Let's get down to business. More specifically to the instructions.
0. Connect your smart device and PC to the same Wi-Fi network. If your PC does not have a Wi-Fi module, then connect it to the router via a cable.
1. Install the Splashtop Streamer THD Gamepad
2. Install the
on the PC.
3. In the client, we must set the password for access in the client for the PC, otherwise the devices will not be able to connect.
4. Connect to your PC, the program should see your PC itself, if it doesn’t work, fill in the details of your PC manually. If the PC is still not visible, then restart your computer.
After that, you can safely navigate the interface of your PC. But it happens (I personally had it) that the program required to run the game in windowed mode. If you encounter this, then reinstall the Splashtop THD Gamepad program on your device, then turn off “Improving the quality of the product” in the settings and then everything will work
If you have an Xbox 360 USB gamepad, you can dance and enjoy - connect the game pad to your device and it will work directly with games. Here you have the whole essence of this exclusive. If you have another gamepad, for example, DualShock 3 or some kind of miracle overseas, then you can make it work by the method of violent dances with a tambourine. If you are interested in such an article, then write your opinion in the comments.
And finally, I decided to distribute a little random video with gameplay through this program. Look at your health!
This is where we finish talking about streaming PC games and move on to another exclusive: Half Life 2 and Portal
. And that's all for now, until we meet again!
