Arcade is in beta, and only supports some DirectX 11, DX 9 and OpenGL titles. If you are getting errors and issues while using Arcade, please try the things contained in this article.
Parsec Arcade is our latest gaming feature that helps you play local, offline multiplayer and couch co-op games with your friends or strangers, online. It's also the go-to way to play with people from all around the world.
In contrast to streaming the whole desktop in the Computers tab, Arcade streams just the game to your friends and online peers. There's no voice chat echo, and no need to keep a separate chat window open to talk to friends - the host can talk to the people connected via an on-screen Parsec overlay!
Please be aware that Arcade is in beta and you it's possible you'll encounter issues hosting games, in addition to being unable to give full keyboard and mouse to guests for games that need it. Because of that, if you're playing with friends we recommend that you use the Computers tab for now.
