Default [Q] Splashtop THD/2 and SLI with fullscreen?

Hey Guys!

I finally decided to pick up a Shield and now I am in awe and a little lost!

I got the NVIDIA Game Streaming working fine and I got Splashtop THD sideloaded. I also have Splashtop 2 installed - I am familiar enough with the two to get things going. The issue I am having is, playing games (like Skyrim or Dragon Age) in fullscreen. It either crashes the app or gives me a warning the it cannot support fullscreen games. My PC has 2x 780 GTX graphics cards running in SLI with two monitors connected. I tried disabling SLI and netted the same results. I am not sure it matters, but I am also running Windows 8.1.

My question is, can I do anything to allow fullscreen games or am I stuck in windowed only?

Things I have tried are:

Splashtop 2 and Splashtop GamePad THD
Disabling SLI
Disabling 1 screen
Geforce Optimization on and Off withing Splashtop
I have the latest drivers, I did try two older drivers as well.

PC:
780 GTX SLI
Windows 8.1
i7 3770K
2x 1080p displays

Any help is much appreciated. I Googled until my fingers were tired and my head was exploding. Most items I found were dated 2012 or earlier. I found one from January of last year. Surely things have changed since then? Anyway - please let me know. If there are any alternatives, I am open to exploration. Just from what I read, Splashtop is the best? If so which version? THD or 2? Does it matter?

Thanks again for your help!

Yes and that works fine.

I am trying splashtop for games that are not natively supported. The issue I am having is that I get the error "splashtop streamer does not support direct screen access...". It has the nvidia optimized logo. I tried every registry change I could find by googling today. I also tried (again) a single card, no sli, and a single monitor.

This is driving me nuts ! haha I see so many talking about doing it but no way to replicate it....I will gladly tip someone if they help me get this working (via PayPal).

Thanks

On every game I have tried so far - which is about 15 games. And I checked the excel sheet in this forum as a guide!

Still have not resolved this =/
