LiquidSky + Parsec (not anymore)

NOTE: LiquidSky has gone downhill. Service quality is absolutely trash, crap. There is no service.

Just use Shadow.tech; Paperspace + Parsec; Simplay.
Stay away from LiquidSky. It’s a scam.

 

First of all, why would you do this?

  • Parsec has no service globally yet.
  • Parsec has a lower latency. Much lower.
  • Parsec has no video discolor / artifacting whatsoever.

So in many ways, Parsec’s client is just superior to LiquidSky’s. And it’s completely free.

1. Login to your SkyComputer

Start and log in to your SkyComputer using the LiquidSky client.
If you haven’t managed to get the LiquidSky windows client running on your Mac in some form, first follow this easy guide to install it using Wine.

2. Create a Parsec.tv account

Go to parsec.tv and create a new account

3. Install Parsec Gaming Server

Now you need to install the Parsec Gaming Server on your SkyComputer.
Go to the Parsec downloads page in a browser on your SkyComputer
and download the Parsec Gaming Server.
Install it on your SkyComputer.

4. Turn off automatic timeout

Make sure automatic timeout in your SkyComputer is set to None, or else your SkyComputer will shut down during your mythic Karazhan run. You can start/shut down your LiquidSky from your Android client. You can also shut down your machine once you are done by simply using the Windows “shutdown” in your SkyComputer.

5. Change the following config file:

By default, your SkyComputer hides your cursor.
We want to turn this off by editing a simple line in the sky.cfg file.
Open the file sky.cfg in the directory C:\Windows\liquidsky.
Change the ShowCursor=0 value to ShowCursor=1.
Restart your SkyComputer to make this change active.
