For those who’ve had issues launching the Windows version of the app - please check this thread for good news.


About time, glad it finally happened.


Windows 7 and Win8 users will see this message


Any idea/ETA when the new crankset issues (making bikes slower) will be fixed? or this will not be addressed leaving as an added game feature, just wondering?


Please tell me it fixed the bug where the screen froze at the start on the downhill portion of Alpe de Zwift events (on ATV).

Asking again to please move QUIT EVENT button to bottom RIGHT corner instead of directly on top of MENU. Please and thank you!!

PS - I thought the deer were supposed to be white :rofl::rofl: so mystical


I liked the Tron deer - another animal for Neokyo?:joy:


Apple tv does not update, it says latest version is 1.20.1 and not 1.21


Apple TV updates role out after pc I think - at least that used to be the case. But don’t quote me on that…

Great to see that there are some new routes in Neokyo! Just uploaded a video of the twilight harbor route too. Here is my post with a frequently update bugs list, my thoughts, images, and details on the new routes. Feel free to check it out here:


Solar Eclipse! Yes! And also loved the white spirit animals (aka Tron deer!) hehehe


Yeah, I think takes some time for the iOS, Apple TV and Android versions to come out


My Apple TV has the update in the App Store. Yours should be there soon, if it’s not already.

Caching in the App store can sometimes make these updates slow to appear. You can wait, or try power cycling your device to clear the cache.

What about blob diseappearing ???
This bug is always occuring during training…Everybody diseappear and you stay alone for 1 mn and when blob appears…you are dropped many seconds behind !!!
D. F


Yeah, I was wondering about these Albino Deers :deer: :thinking: for a while. Thought, there’s was something in the water…:point_left::rofl: Anyway, good news about 2 New Routes at Makuri/Neokyo Map. This Z-World :earth_americas: expended significantly lately…Ride On :bangbang::slightly_smiling_face::+1:


@Didier_FERRIBY when that happens it is, most likely, an issue with your device dropping the internet connection for a period of time. You might need to check that, or hardwire the device on which you are running Zwift.
