@Kaimen : Which country location are you situated in? I'm in the UK and not encountering any issue on either Chromecast or Chrome.
What happens if you signout of Stadia and then sign-in again, do you still have the same issue?
Hey @Mad_Dog_Bravo Thanks for the follow up. I'm in the US.
I tried logging out and logging back in and I'm still having the issue with all of my games.
It doesn't matter if I am home or at work, the same thing happens regardless.
There is a circling icon in the bottom left hand of the screen and eventually, it just says "Reopen game Reopen game to play"
Here a link to a video I made while at work of the issue happening.
@Kaimen : Contact support and discuss the issue with them. I suspect that there is an issue on the Stadia side. I encountered a similar issue very recently on Rise of the TR, but it disappeared after a short while and hasn't resurfaced again. I've also experienced some abrupt game drops too over the past couple of days so it isn't always sunshine and cloud free skies!
@Frivolous_Ninny No, I'm still working with support to address the issue.
I did have some success this morning, but after launching 4-5 games, it was back to the same thing.
They want me to try launching games using a mobile hotspot, but I don't have access to one at the moment. Hopefully, I will be able to find one over the weekend.
FYI, although I was seeing slowdowns prior to the 19th. Launching any games was extremely slow on the 19th and beginning on Monday the 20th, nothing at all would launch.
I will report back here as soon as I find out anything.
I started testing today around 1:23pm EST and it may be my ISP.
I tried launching Thumper, Tomb Raider and Samurai Showdown on my PC and Chromecast and the issue still persists.
Afterward, I headed into town with my laptop and stopped at a nearby McDonalds and Starbucks.
At both places, all of the games I tried to launch on Stadia started up almost immediately. I did a speedtest on both and their wifi connections were clocking in at about 25Mbps up and 5Mbps down which is 4 times slower than my home network.
I returned home and tried to launch again, and wouldn't you know it, same issue.
This is puzzling because I get the same issue at my job, which is about 40 miles from my home but it's possible their network security software may be interfering with the service.
At McDonalds, the wifi is through AT&T but I forgot to check Starbucks.
Next step is to completely remove my router from the setup and see what happens.
If the issue still persists, I guess I need to contact my ISP.
Any news on your end?
