Starting gaming rig (~3 min) ends up never loading

Snoost was working fine for me as long as I was using free trial. Once I actually paid for a plan, I get stuck that this 'Starting gaming rig (~3 min)' thing and it never loads. I walked away, let it sit for 20 minutes, tried restarting a bunch of times, reinstalled chrome and chrome Snoost app, etc etc etc. I'm actually furious, this is my day off and I've spent a good 2 hours totally frustrated. Right now I have zero confidence in Snoost, and feel that they only give you good service while you're in the 'free trial' portion of membership.

Hi Calvinis,

We are aware of this stuck process and are working on a fix as soon as possible. I sincerely apologize in regards to this situation. Please check back soon for more information.

This is resolved. Switched to Vortex.gg cloud gaming and it works like a dream, Mac or PC. No in-browser controller support, however. Snoost would be great if it worked.

I feel I've been too hard on Snoost. Obviously, my hardware setup is not the best in the world, and so I should not be surprised that I'm having issues. But here's my problem: Cloud-based gaming platforms are specifically targeted at those who DONT have insane hardware. The idea is, you can use a chromebook or something like that to play insanely powerful games remotely. So these platforms should work well even when the player is using a pretty weak machine. (I use a machine with an Intel i7 processor, btw, but it still can't handle Divinity II). I've been using vortex.gg, it's OK if (and thats a big IF) you have a really good internet connection. If you don't, you keep getting disconnected. They have a ping test on their website, so that helps. Vortex doesn't require that your games download/load on a virtual console, they just have the games pre-loaded - but you can't play any game you want. So you need to search on their site I guess to see. I'm not a rep for Vortex.gg, I just like it better than snoost for now. But cloud-based gaming IS the future, I believe. Technology will keep moving too fast for everyone to keep buying new rigs every two years.
