Hi there! Does anyone experienced the crash on games menu? After I connected to the PC, the screen went black then crash >"<
I've tried to restart the console but it didn't work after all :(
I'm using latest asmosphere :(

Hey Xitrix, thanks for the awesome job mate. So, I'm able to connect to my pc using my switch and also move the mouse but thats it. I can't click, cant use switch buttons. I can only see the live screen and hear the sound.

I'm testing inside Steam Big Picture and I have ticked the options related to controls:

Sorry but it is in Portuguese but the order is the same as in english.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks a lot for your support!

@edit

If anybody is also having this problem, you just need to install ViGEmBus/releases - search on google for his github page.

Try to clear /switch/moonlight folder, it could help

For those who can run 1080p without issue (slowness), have you Overclocked your switch (if so, which freq?) or/and do you use Wired adapter ?

I'm a little confused about these 1080p slowness because I've just installed moonlight on my "cheap" LG TV and it works like a charm at 1080p (wired). However I dont think my LG TV has a powerfull CPU...

Hi, 1080p couldn't work without overclocking, usually I set 1785 Mhz for CPU to get good performance. You could try to use smaller values, I was a bit lazy to find optimal value by myself.

The Switch CPU isn't that special and the TV is probably tapping into a decoder chip/GPU while this homebrew port AFAIK is not...

Yes, you are correct, nvidia chips has NVENC video decoder that currently is not possible to use in homebrew apps, so this port uses software decoding which runs on CPU, not GPU

So I finally had a chance to use it and it works great.
I used it to play a rom hack on retroarch (steam ver) and it worked for 3 hours straight without any problems.
Both my laptop and Switch were connected to LAN so input lag was pretty good too 👍

First off: Great work on this. The functionality is amazing — I love all the controls. I use Moonlight a lot for couch/shitter gaming, and it's really cool to see it implemented for the Switch.

I experience a lot of slowdown, both in picture and audio, when I'm running around particularly busy scenes in games. Meanwhile the host PC isn't breaking a sweat and I'm sitting literally right next to the router.

Playing in portable mode, M-S stream set to 720p. I believe multiple posts in this thread state that the Switch should be able to handle around 20 mbps. But I haven't found that to be the case for anything but very chill scenes.

Does the bitrate increase so much for a "busy" image that the Switch can't decode it quickly enough?

Is overclocking recommended to make 720p stream reliably?

What's the point in setting 20mbps? i can't see any difference between 10 and 20 tbh, especially on such small screen. Try overclocking a bit and lowering bitrate. Also turn on the stats and see if you have any drops related to your connection. I don't experience almost any slowdowns, stats usually show 2-5ms decoder delay (and 0 connection related drops) which is great.

Lowered to 10 mbps and you're right — image quality is fine. Everything's running smoothly now. It's a strange time to be alive, playing Halo Infinite on the Switch through GamePass via Moonlight-Switch.
