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 @ 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

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 @ 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 @ 9:40am 
Come on! Steam Home Streaming is here, free, works like a charm.
Warchilde Feb 13 @ 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.

Just tried don't strave on the ouya, feels good with the correct keyboard mappings. Inventory is a hassle though.

this looks awsome!

@wellen1981 Look at this for the last update about the progress: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=759425700751413&id=311984242162230

The dev is still waiting for approval, but he made it possible to buy it (server edition) from his website http://www.kainy.com. He also promised that people who buy the server edition will get a steam key once it is released on steam.

Update on steam release?

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.

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 @ 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.

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.
Thanks,
JS.
Chrono Oct 22, 2013 @ 2:18pm 
Any new info on this? Greenlit some time ago and was wondering when release might come around.

Orwella Sep 25, 2013 @ 1:06pm 
I was looking for this kind of program since ages, thx alot
danz409 Sep 20, 2013 @ 10:29pm 
looks awesome! now. if this works with those bluetooth or other controllers that connect to your phone and work. (f**k touch screen controls...)i'm sold. (only thing preventing me from using splashtop as a nice mobile PC game porting tool...)
Rabbids4eva Sep 16, 2013 @ 12:51pm 
So... when is the "accurate" release date?
Laundry basket[IQ -10] Sep 10, 2013 @ 5:25pm

@ratzeputz: Hi,
It works in local but on internet, you'll get a blue screen demo. This is a bug and I fixed for the next release.
Thanks,
JS.
ratzeputz Sep 2, 2013 @ 11:42pm 
I downloaded the beta version from your website, as i want to test it for my pc.
Thought the beta does have full color?
I have tried it through internet connection and this annoying blue cast is still in there :(

Greenlit! YEEEEES! (Question,no chance of a Ipad/Iphone version?)
wellen1981 Aug 31, 2013 @ 8:56am 
I hope you can get this out asap dev, a lot of us PC gamers are completely behind this and have been waiting ages silently to become customers once this is released. Congrats for getting Greenlit.
Vipes Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:24pm 
Oh boy. I am going to love this then. I love my desktop, but you can't exactly lug it everywhere.
^0Nade^4Spammer  [author] Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:17pm 
@Vipes: Yes exactly. Look the Chrome video (third video) where I used a chromebook (dual core 1.7 arm) for the client and a PC quad core for the server.
Vipes Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:08pm 
Stupid question, but does this mean I can play the games on my high end desktop, on my low end laptop?
Jo351 Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:24pm 
Dude grats on the greenlight. I got kainy on my Bionic hoping to use my lapdock to play games, but ran into some issues using it outside my LAN. Will this interact with mobile versions and Steam? More exactly will this work better for streaming steam games to my phone?
