So, as a follow-up post, is GeForce Now able to sync your Steam purchases, or do you have to buy games all over again? BTW, I just put my name on the waiting list. :)

Games are not bought through GeforceNow, but there are only specific games that are fully supported. I.E. I can sign into steam and run any game (well try to run) but it will have to reinstall on the cloud computer every session (and if they don't have steam cloud your games aren't saved) . Supported games are instantly available from any session with save support.

Hey, thanks for he swift reply, man! There are some specific games that I'm really interested in: Destiny 2, Overwatch, Doom, Wolfenstein (the new ones), DEMD, the Metro Redux games, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Dying Light, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands TPS.

Do you know which of these are supported?

Hey , guys,

I'm finished enjoying the free beta for the GeForce NOW app, and would like to stop using it without any concern about being billed for anything in the future, if/when it goes paid.

Is it as simple as deleting the app on my Mac? Has anyone done it?

BTW, I've sent a note with this same question in the app itself this morning, using the "feedback" tool.

Thanks for reading this. :)

The beta didn't require a CC so I can't imagine how they would bill for it without your input, should the day they start billing arrive.

Along with the app there are two small files located at

~/Library/Preferences/com.nvidia.crimson.agent.plist
~/Library/Caches.com.nvidia.crimson.agent

Do you recall if those files are hidden files?

The filenames would have started with a dot if they were hidden. You library is likely hidden as standard, if you can't find them. You can turn that off in Finders preferences.

Not finding that option in either Finder prefs or the general control panels.

The only resources online I'm finding for making hidden files visible refer to a terminal command.

Thanks, after following your directions, I learned that i had indeed already found that library folder, but am not finding the files that macdude mentioned (which made me question if I was using the correct technique).

I wonder why?
