A common issue is Garmin Express which often starts at boot time. That can bind to the USB stick and prevent other programs from using it. If I start Zwift on this PC (which is not my normal Zwift PC, but does have Garmin Express running) for example I get this:
And of course I get the alert icon on the connection:
On my Zwift PC I don’t have Garmin Express running, I have two ANT+ sticks, and I get a “connection OK” icon for the ANT+ connection (i.e. Zwift is happy that it has bound to an ANT+ stick).
Especially frustrating because it used to not be there. At the time, mid-2015, people requested a feature to bring their avatar to a stop because back then, events were just communicated on here or facebook of a start location and it was tough to coast to the right spot. After it came to be, it was a huge change in racing or riding given if you weren’t always on the gas, you’d start to shoot out the back. The crowd that was on Zwift at the time was the crowd that had been on trainers anyway (different to today where indoor riding is seen as a completely different way to ride a bike), so a lot of the feedback was that no one cared because they just grind out time on the trainer anyway.
This has been my soapbox for a long while- when it comes to mechanical stopping (braking) that should be at the user’s control, not the game’s.
Some minor issues of 1.33, not resolved in 1.33.2:
loss of “rubber band” in Meetups - happened today on AdZ when a group member dropped though obviously still part of the group (green color) → in addition to the misrouting phenomenon buggy group rides.
ZCA: While in workout mode in main program, ZCA still shows the “dashboard” and not the “workout” tab. Restarting ZCA didn’t solve the problem.
Zwift showing “Verbindung fehlt” (“connection lost”) on top left for a minute, though internet was stable (zwiftaliser w/o error) and the other riders were still displayed. Happened at 5.06pm, parallel to a the TdZ start → server resources???
Luckily, my bluetooth connection to the trainer is stable… (Windows 10, Kickr V5)!
Running 1.33.2 on Windows PC I noticed a bug with the lap splits for heart rate on every single km over the course of 11km. Heart rate was mostly in the 160s throughout the run until km 11 when I cooled down with a walk. The splits on screen show HR mostly in the 120s per km instead of 160s.
The heart rate at the top of the screen was correct, but every split was incorrect. I run every week and this is the first time I’ve noticed this bug. It might have been there before, but I’ve not noticed till now.
You may already be aware but if not and your testing - does your HR zone register any minutes if you are running hudless?
Turned off HUD to walk for around 12-14 minutes and look at scenery and when I came back to use HUD noticed none of those minutes had registered top left. (Edit - I walked on for another 12 minutes just to check HR blue zone minutes were being added with HUD on )
