The Gamepad Mapper offers recieved some improvements with this new update opening the ability to share, search, and rate community-sourced Gamepad Mapper profiles. This feature is in experiment with status so there could be some bugs popping up. Other improvements range from the ability to map gyro simulator to your thumbsticks, right thumbstick function for first-person perspective video games that use touch swipes to look around, and new \”accelerated cursor\” choice for joystick mouse mode.
However the big news with this update is another step forward with Nvidia\’s GameStream feature which, until recently, was only available for nearby game streaming out of your PC to your Nvidia Shield. However the main goal had been always to bring Nvidia\’s impair gaming service known as GRID into the picture and now a experiment with of this full cloud gaming service is reside but only for residents in Northern Ca for right now.
If you reside in the supported area and own a Shield, you\’ll be able to stream complete PC games through the impair to play on your Shield as long as you\’re connected to the internet. Streamed games will arrive in 1080p at Sixty FPS as well so nice high quality.
