  • WHAT'S NEW IN GEFORCE NOW 2.0.14

    Get In The Game Faster

    • Game sessions should launch 2-3 seconds faster, thanks to some backend magic in this update. That’s 10% faster on average.
    • Think of what you can do with this extra free time. You can learn a new language, or eat a pre-game snack. We vote snacks.

    Game Patching Notifications

    • Our new app will now show if a game is patching before you launch it. Know before you go.
    • More info on our game patching process is a big priority for us, and we’re thrilled to make this easier for you.

    Additional Language Support

    • The GeForce NOW app adds support for the following languages: UK English, Latin America Spanish, Slovak, Slovenian, Croatian.

    Improved App Visuals

    • Various tweaks to the way the app looks, including small changes to top-banner game images. Kind of like when Mom licks a napkin to clean your little brother’s face, but it’s a software engineer and somehow less awkward.

    Other Things

    • Parles-tu Français ? Because if you do and you use a French keyboard you might have found our problem with using the “@” symbol to login to digital stores or game launchers.  We have written workaround steps here and are working on a real fix in a future app update.

  • WHAT'S NEW IN GEFORCE NOW 2.0.15

    Local Mouse Cursor Added

    • We now draw the mouse cursor locally in your app with games that use a hardware cursor, such as League of Legends and Path of Exile.
    • This improves latency, speeds up cursor response times, and improves game menu navigation, resulting in a better overall mouse feel. 
    • Click the exclamation icon and let us know how the new cursor works for you.  Your feedback helps us dial it in.

    Gotta Go Fast

    • Game sessions will now launch even faster - by as much as 1.3 seconds. Every second you’re not in the game is a moment wasted, right?

    New and Improved Network Tester

    • The time it takes to run a network test has been reduced from around 15 seconds to a mere five seconds. We are rolling this update out to each of our GeForce NOW data centers over the coming weeks, so it may take some time to reach everyone.

    New Highlights In-Game Overlay Shortcuts

    • Our new app updates some keyboard shortcuts used to activate the In-Game Overlay and record your content using NVIDIA Highlights.
    • The new shortcuts are Ctrl+G on PC or Cmd+G on Mac.
    • For a full list of all keyboard shortcuts, please read this knowledge base article.

    GeForce NOW: GeForce Gaming, Available to All

    • We are excited to announce that our beta test period has ended, and GeForce NOW is open to everyone. Ready to get started? Read on.
    • GeForce NOW members in regions serviced by alliance partners (GFN.ru, LGU+, Softbank) will continue to experience the service as offered by those alliance partners. Look for updates from them for any service changes in their regions.

    Search in More Languages

    • Our Search bar’s been studying - you can now search to find a specific game in our PC and macOS apps if it has a name in your language.
    • Want to find Fortnite? Sure, you can search for the game in English, but in South Korea the game is known as 포트나이트.  Using either name will get you into the action.
    • Even if your chosen game doesn’t have a non-English name, you can now search using keywords or genres in your local language. Give it a try!

    More Game Info

    • We’ve added more info to game details 
    • Want to know if your chosen game has controller support, or includes multiplayer modes? You can find that info under the game’s details.

    Other Changes

    • Fit and finish improvements, designed to make browsing the app easier and faster and improve overall stability. These are little details that maybe you won’t notice, but keep our UI designers up at night. Get some sleep, guys!
    • For instance, switching between rows when expanding the game details is much more comfortable, and it’s now much harder to accidentally change the game in the evidence panel as you move your mouse across the screen.
    • Added a workaround for macOS users with Japanese 106 key keyboard layouts that are unable to type an underscore (“_”) when streaming. Please use “SHIFT + _” when streaming.
    • Other miscellaneous fixes. You may not see them, but they’ll improve overall app quality, stability, and reliability.

    macOS 10.15 Catalina Support

    • macOS 10.15 Catalina is now supported. A few Catalina-specific notes below.
    • Catalina users will be notified that “NVIDIA GeForce NOW” is requesting access to your microphone the first time you run a game. You will only need to do this the first time you run a game on GeForce NOW.
    • There are changes by Apple in macOS 10.15 Catalina that change an application’s default access to mouse input. If you are using GeForce NOW with macOS 10.15 Catalina, your gaming experience may be different, and you may experience mouse acceleration when gaming. Please follow the instructions in this knowledge base article to change your experience to feel like previous macOS.

    Other changes and squashed bugs

    • Turbo Mode (120 FPS) has been moved to the Competitive stream profile within the GeForce NOW app’s options. We have updated our apps to remove the Turbo Mode (120fps) from the custom streaming profile in the app settings. However, it is still available for you to use under the competitive streaming profile.
    • Other bug fixes to improve quality and reliability. Itty-bitty stuff that you probably didn’t even notice, but we fixed anyway.
