SHIELD Software Update Adds Full-HD PC Game Streaming To TV
Nvidia's portable gaming device SHIELD has been updated to offer a better GAMESTREAM experience and allows users to browse and rate community generated gamepad mapping profiles.
Last month Nvidia released an update that introduced a number of new features to SHIELD. Emerging from beta just last month, GAMESTREAM lets users equipped with Nvidia's latest Kepler-class GTX graphics cards wirelessly stream their PC games to SHIELD.
The latest update improves the GAMESTREAM experience, adds support for new games, and gives PC gamers the ability to stream select games from their PC library to SHIELD at a 60 frames per second at a 1080p over an Ethernet connection while SHIELD is in console mode.
Launched last month, Gamepad Mapper adds support for new Android titles by giving gamers an easy way to optimize mobile games for SHIELD?s console-grade analog thumbsticks and trigger buttons.
The latest SHIELD update adds a new community profile BETA feature that gives users the ability to share, browse and rate community generated gamepad mapping profiles. No need to customize the controls for your favorite Android games for SHIELD's controls. Just grab another member of the community's configuration and go.
Additionally, Nvidia is also adding the ability to map gyroscope, motion-based movements to SHIELD's console-style controls. So rather than waving your SHIELD to and fro to navigate your way through games, you'll be able to simply map that gesture to one of SHIELD's thumbsticks.
Nvidia is also improving support for first-person games - like "Mass Effect Infiltrator" - by adding the ability to use the right thumb stick to "look around," just as you would in a console game.
Lastly, Nvidia improved the cursor feature to better optimize navigation in games that require cursor control.
Finally, SHIELD now automatically hides the Android status bar at the top of your screen. A quick swipe brings it back down from the top of the screen.
