Consider changes to forcing updates


(Yukie Wubbo) #1

I have a feature request and I know it’s potentially a very tall task. Can you revisit your policy for deploying updates - either to not force an update to install or to give an option to install it after a ride is over? When I go to ride, it’s like first playing update roulette with regards to whether I’ll be able to start riding right away or not. Today I had to wait 30 minutes for the update to install and I only had a brief 60 minute window to exercise. I know I don’t have to tell you how that made me feel. If you could consider changing how updates are installed, that would be an awesome change.

A roll back feature would be nice also. Each new update has the potential for ruining a Zwift experience. The Aple du Zwift was not worth losing ambient sounds all across Watopia.

You could get errors because the client would not match the server version and you could end up riding alone or on the wrong course (or not at all).

All the Zwift updates for me seem to take less than 5 minutes to complete.
