We don't need a fix, any kind of backdoor link to play with sd graphics is more than enough while devs take all the time needed for a proper fix

Small update, today a guy playing shakes for the past 10.5 years decided to delete his account since he can't play the update and the browser version (the only one he can play) is not available anymore.

That's a pitty playa prefer releasing new servers every months and doesn't care about people that spent a lot of money here in the past 11 years

We are well aware..we already contacted Unity some time ago and waiting for a solution. It is not a bug we can fix as they provide the engine whose current version reduces the performance of the game. We cannot switch back to the old version as the last two updates were coded in the new Unity version and we cannot start from scratch either.

The URL codes "version=test" and "version=old" no longer make sense as a lot has been changed. Switching to low-res graphics in-game should work now, too.

As a workaround, you can only play the Steam version (it is fast), the Android app or iOS app. Playing the game in a private incognito tab in Firefox or Chrome also improves everyting (RAM consumption, CPU etc.).

Is TV currently showing on Steam version? If still not then that should be enough of a reason to not use it.

TV is not working on Steam version, and it never will (as it is against Steam policy afaik).

Valve does not allow ads.

PS According to some players on Discord, the game runs better in Opera. Give it a try!

An everyday larger part of the community thinks that Playa plans to stop supporting the browser part of the game in order to focus 100% on phone apps and steam.

Leander, can you tell us if there is some truth is these words?

A lot of players use shakes to relax once they get home after a day of work and they just wanna chill at the pc forgetting about the phone and without having to switch to never used before browsers for slightly (if any) better performances.

Other people play from their workplace and therefore they can't use the phone or install steam.

I don't have the numbers, but i reckon that a huge part of the older community is on this same wavelength, before other players that spent more than 10 years on this game quit, can we have some news? Some info? Some reassurances? Do playa even care?


PS. a lot of Mac users have OS Catalina installed, this prevent 32-bits game to run on steam. Or, in other words, it runs but slower than the already slower browser version
