    error code...
    the msvcp140d.dll was not included with the program (like many other homebrew programs that need it to run) so I downloaded the .dll file and placed it into th directory in the photo and I got the error you see here...

    Looks amazing, but could you run a native PC game that possibly runs at 60fps as a demo? I can't tell if the streaming is stuttering or the emulator. Maybe something like quake or shovel Knight would be much better.

    I assume this does not support audio streaming as well?

    How's the lag on this? I live at a college dorm with a roommate who tends to want to fall asleep much sooner than I do, and it would be nice to be able to play my games on desktop without feeling like I'm being inconsiderate. I *just* got "Danganronpa - Ultra Despair Girls" (as in, I finished Danganronpa 2 just this last weekend), a 3rd-Person Shooter. How would something like that play using this?

    Just wondering, how's the bandwidth usage? Does the app automatically downscale the video stream to 240p or does it try to send the video at a higher resolution? Is it a good idea to set my games to 240p when playing them with this?
