WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SUPPORTED AND UNSUPPORTED GAMES?


All games listed in our app are guaranteed to work well with GeForce NOW for Mac and have express install options, so they install in seconds.


 

Optimized Games. These games have Optimal Playable Settings (OPS), which means NVIDIA has tested and applied game settings that produce an optimal playing experience on GeForce NOW, and support express install, so they install in seconds. These games support Steam and Blizzard cloud saves so that your progress and achievements will be synchronized with other PCs. (Note: You must have the cloud sync enabled on each respective platform for cloud saves to work.) Optimized Games also include NVIDIA cloud-saves if the game does not synchronize saved games to a platform like Steam or Blizzard.


 

Unoptimized Games. These games do not have OPS for the best default settings. You may have to change in-game resolution and graphics settings to get the best experience. These games do support express install, so they install in seconds. These games will support Steam and Blizzard cloud saves so that your progress and achievements will be synchronized with other PCs. (Note: You must have the cloud sync enabled on each respective platform for cloud saves to work.)


 

Unsupported Games. You can launch Steam, install a game that’s not on our list of supported games, and play it. However, these games will take 10-20 minutes to install, your games will only be saved if they support Steam Cloud Sync, there will be no OPS, and you will need to reinstall the games the next time you run Steam.  (Note: You must have the cloud sync enabled on each respective platform for cloud saves to work.)
