Why didn't steam accept the current version ?
Vitesse Jan 20 @ 10:31am 
Wondering if anyone else here has used Kainy to play games in coop with other people?

My friend is from the US (Im from Europe) and we have been playing some games together, generally the video feed is acceptable, but the only issue is the input delay - e.g. it can take up to a second after pressing a button for the game to respond to it.

I hope its something that will be improved in Kainy 2.0, honestly if the input delay is improved then this program would be perfect for what we want :)

@Dyl_weed: I'm working a new major version of Kainy (2.0). I don't even think Steam will accept this version. They didn't accept the first one...

Aw come on, Valve. You guy's are normally so great, so don't be a scumbag now. Get back to the poor guy about the multi-streaming feature, please. He said he'd be willing to possibly remove the feature but you guys won't answer him. It's so hard nowadays to take off on a platform without help and I'm sure that to gain traction it would be infinitely beneficial for him to be greenlit. Besides, you DID allow us to greenlight the project, so it only makes sense for you to put in a shred of effort to work with him on getting this project up on steam. If a single valve employee even reads this, then I'm thankful you took the time to hear me out. Thanks!

Hey there. Been a while since I checked out this project. Has the Project died? Purchased Kainy for PC almost 6 months ago and havn't seen any update info or anything like this. The project was greenlit over a year ago and still no updates? What gives?
^0Nade^4Spammer  [author] Jul 28, 2014 @ 5:36pm 
coldkeyes: Yes, I would like me too. Looninjg: No it's not dead but don't expect to see Kainy on Steam. I posted a message on fb/g+ March 18th 2014 about that:
"I submitted Kainy on SteamWorks December 3rd 2013 and I got the message that someone at Valve will contact me. One guys contacted me December 12th by email and he wrote there are concerns for Kainy. We got the phone call and he told me: sorry I should have called you before (while Greenlight) and the concern was a specific feature (Multi-Connection)... ...So after a couple of days(5), I sent a new email where I could remove this feature (multi-connections) for the Steam version but it seems that the reply button has vanished because I didn't get any reply since... Now, it's 3.5 months later, 5 emails sent since and I didn't get any news about that..."
So I'm still working on Kainy to delivery the version 1.75. Also, I have a contract so I got less time on Kainy but I'm still on it.
coldkeyes Jul 27, 2014 @ 9:54pm 
I vote in favor of this, absolutely think its time for this to happen

If I may say a word about this software. I got it a while ago, didn't know it was on steam, and it is AMAZING. Seriously amazing. the only reason I used windows was because all my games were on windows and it tended to be a real bitch to configure wine for all my games [crossover works i guess but meh] so I tried many things. I tried to use a seamless virtualbox with experimental D3D support and run my steam hdd in the vbox, but the performance was shite- although it did work to an extent. This software is really a dream come true. I can now say that I am officially 99% Microsoft windows free! [I have windows kainy server with my steam disk headless in my back room now :D ]

Greyscale color is related to the trial version. Buy the full version if you want full color.
DeathWhitch Mar 2, 2014 @ 10:30pm 
Same problem as Tiberius below, anyone found a fix for this yet. The streaming on this is awesome and playable but i have to play in a greyscale mode. Actually streams better than nvidias streaming app on the shield for me but I can't seem to get the color (or lack there of) issue fixed. anyone finds a fix please add me on steam and let me know
ImperatorTiberius Feb 27, 2014 @ 11:36am 
Ok, now I have installed the app and the server version. It works, but I only get greyscale graphics and the bottom of my screen is missing (I can't see the taskbar in windows for example) which makes it sometimes hard to launch a game from the game's launcher.

But the colors are really fucked up like this, does anyone know a fix?
ImperatorTiberius Feb 27, 2014 @ 7:49am 
Because the app tells me to install the Steam version of Kainy, my question is: is the pc-server version what I need? Since I cannot find the Steam version yet, I wonder.
mths95 Feb 21, 2014 @ 9:40am 
Come on! Steam Home Streaming is here, free, works like a charm.
Warchilde Feb 13, 2014 @ 7:40pm 
I have been pretty much following Kainy since it first appeared in the Play store. Considering this is the result of a one man operation who also happens to have a full time job? I'm willing to wait for this one to come out.
Teikies Feb 6, 2014 @ 11:31pm 
Just tried don't strave on the ouya, feels good with the correct keyboard mappings. Inventory is a hassle though.
The Mister Chief Feb 4, 2014 @ 6:56pm 
this looks awsome!
Moonsurfer_1 Jan 21, 2014 @ 9:29am 
@wellen1981 Look at this for the last update about the progress:

The dev is still waiting for approval, but he made it possible to buy it (server edition) from his website He also promised that people who buy the server edition will get a steam key once it is released on steam.
wellen1981 Jan 20, 2014 @ 5:40am 
Update on steam release?
D0n't_G3t_St0mp3d Jan 8, 2014 @ 5:11pm 
I would love some better bluetooth controller support. After some research (and no response from Kainy about the question) I was without any solid information about controller support on the Kainy Android app. I took a leap of faith and bought a Moga Pro controller. I love the controller but was SO disappointed when I realized the app was just emulating a keyboard while using it. This, the fact that I can't get this to work outside of the home network yet, the forums being down today, and the general lack of support and responsiveness from the developer is just frustrating. I wish I had waited a while longer for a similar, more polished product to come out for my device.
neema_t Jan 3, 2014 @ 4:38pm 
I bought this on my Ouya (which I bought purely for Kainy) today, the streaming part is great (using 200mbps powerline ethernet adaptors) but the controls aren't so great. Mapping the controller to keyboard and mouse inputs works fine for a handful of games, but without Xinput support it's not going to be a viable streaming method for me, unfortunately; Big Picture mode and most controller-supported games need Xinput, so... Yeah. Hopefully it'll be added in future though, it's not impossible... Right?
Carpediemsnuts Jan 1, 2014 @ 5:47am 
I bought kainy to test on my android phone and loved the idea of using it on my windows 8 tablet but like many have had issues with windows client or the fact that your stuck in demo mode. Maybe someone has a more obvious answer but one that's working well for me was to download bluestacks android emulator and install your paid version via the play store till the full release in future. Sorry if this has already been covered and Happy 2014!
Moonsurfer_1 Dec 20, 2013 @ 11:42am 
The dev did all he could. He sent his version to steam and is waiting for their approval. I don't know how long these things take, but I suppose it'll still take a few weeks. Just be patient.
Tetla Dec 20, 2013 @ 11:11am 
I want this for X-mas. I already bought android version, I don't realy care if I have to pay again on Steam version just get it out. PC Demo works fine on my laptop, but latest PC DEMO is in blue screen only. I want to play full color, full screen, full sound. If you have it still in beta at least bring color back in the Demo version, even sound, I'll pay just to get the full screen mode. Just get this thing out, I am off work for next two weeks for Holidays it would be great to have it out now.

insta buy on steam when rls
ratzeputz Dec 16, 2013 @ 8:41am 
What a pitty ... Since i want to use it on Linux too, and the only option is to use it in Chrome, i tried the new Version of Kainy ... still does not work in Chrome on Linux -> Dying Puzzle Symbol and nothing more.
Will wait for Steam InHouse Streaming ... will be released faster i guess :D

I cant get it to work through google chrome web browser. im so mad i didnt see this program before a bought this.. but if its going to come for windows tablets I'd rather keep it cause it has full windows 8 on it.

Ravyu Dec 9, 2013 @ 6:12pm 
Author says he's submitted the app to Steam today
Moonsurfer_1 Nov 21, 2013 @ 10:17am 
So when can we expect this to be released? Is the blinking screen thing fixed yet? I'm very interested in adding this to my collection. ;)
Ad-Man-Gamer Nov 20, 2013 @ 11:01pm 
If you do make this for RT, make sure you add xbox controller support with the ability to connect multiple controllers, as well as the ability to make custom key bindings. Better not let that USB port on the serface go to waste. ;)
Jay0r Nov 17, 2013 @ 6:35pm 
Dude, its allready the 18th of November. Im waiting since the first day you put Kainy up here on Greenlight.... how long should i now play in this stupid blue colors? :( You promised two weeks after approval from greenlight... Please give us a ETA .... thanks!
^0Nade^4Spammer  [author] Oct 23, 2013 @ 6:19pm 
@Chrono: Hi, I'm working to release this version for Steam. I got some emails about blinking screen and I would like to fix this one before release. Also, I received and integrated 4 localizations (3 news/1 update) and some improvements/features.
Sevaver Oct 22, 2013 @ 2:18pm 
Any new info on this? Greenlit some time ago and was wondering when release might come around.
