GeforceNow Support

Hello Everybody!

I just wanted to see, what do you all think about GeforceNow Support for AirportCEO. It would really make it easier to create the really large and complicated airports, but I just wanted to see what you think.

Hey @Olof, Is GeforceNow for AirportCeo possible, or impossible?

I could be wrong, but it’s my understanding that the way GeForceNow works there is no need to do anything with the game in order to have it supported

The problem is that indie, simulation, tycoon games are using mostly CPU power rather than GPU power. That’s why game gets lagged even with gaming PCs because they have high end GPU but also have low or medium end CPU.

Also umm… I think we get one developer’s answer :smiley:

As far as I understand how GeforceNow works, any game can be added to the platform, but the addition has to be initiated by the developer, not any random Joe Schmoe.

Right, although I believe you still have the option to download steam and install games from there that haven’t been officially added. I do agree with you though. It would be interesting to see what sort of performance improvements you could get

I think we would have to be approahced by GeForce to make this a reality but… making the game un on whatever the GeForce platform looks like doesn’t sound like something we’d do in a heartbeat… :stuck_out_tongue:

And yes, I do have a beast work computer, otherwise I would never be able to load all those massive bug report airports you keep sending us! :joy:

I would second that. Most games are limited by CPU power or how workload is allocated.

Any update?

I can play Factorio and Space Engineers on GeForce Now without issues. All maxed out and 60 FPS all time.

The servers have quad core Intel processors and Gtx 1080, 2060, 2080 and Tesla P40.

I think that they are ok even for Airport CEO.

Please Devs, activate this option. Thanks.

Hello, im just resurrecting this thread to ask if support could be possible please? Nvidea doesnt need to approach you or anything. You just need to specify cloud support via steam, and send them an exe of the game. They will then make it available on their systems.

Sadly i am currently stuck in a situation where i have great internet, but no computer. So i use geforce now over my TV :slight_smile:

Unfortunately I think the process is a bit more involved, however we are currently in the process on enabling Airport CEO on more platforms so I will have another look at it.

Thanks, if you do go down the route the documentation for steamcloud play is here and the information for the geforce SDK (which you DO NOT need) is here and finally their dev programme is available from a link on the SDK page, apologies im not allowed to post more than 2 links haha.

I promise it is a very simple and easy to do thing :slight_smile: thanks for revisiting.
