Game Update 1.39 [May 2023]

I have all the same issues on Android as you have on IOS

Same on Windows 10 for the road borders around the Volcano

When you say you reordered stuff and it fixed the problem, what did you reorder?
I have the issue that it picks up the ANT+ signal of my trainer when the Bluetooth signal is the better connection, so have to swap it out every time.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Zwifters Nearby bar Scrolling randomly

I’m having the same steering issue with Kickr Bike v1 (Windows 10, bluetooth). On top of that, after riding for about an hour yesterday, my steering stopped working completely. The buttons didn’t do anything, and my avatar got stuck in one “lane”. I was riding with a group of 5-6 people and got dropped because my avatar moved out of the draft and wouldn’t rotate back in the draft like they normally would. Not sure if that was a one-off issue since I haven’t ridden for over an hour in a long time (recovering from illness), but I’ll continue to keep an eye on it.

EDIT: Actually not exactly the same issue. On the pairing screen, I can’t select the Kickr Bike for steering and the steering tile stays orange. When I start my ride, the steering icon is blue and I can steer immediately. I also can’t turn steering off manually.

Hi - you sound technically savvy. How old is your Mac hardware? Does it support Apple Metal API, or OpenGL only?

As noted in the first post upstream, starting with 1.39, Zwift only works on macOS devices with Apple support for Metal. We’ve been working toward improving performance on macOS for quite some time. Might that be what’s happening in your case?

Maybe it’s an intentional change and not a bug, but it used to be possible to switch between live results and 90 days PR by clicking on the left and right arrows in the leaderboards, now it isn’t possible anymore.

No idea what my computer has in it. But for whatever reason the two higher resolutions were just made available to me after this update. Interested to see if I notice a difference riding this weekend.

If not so much the change in resolution that’ll be the difference, it’s the fact you’ve now got access to the ultra profile.

It’ll be like night and day.

That’s for the new climb portal thing that’s being developed. There’s a leaked video doing the rounds on Facebook.

Happy Cinco de Mayo for those who celebrate :mexico: :us:

Zwift v 1.39.0 is available to every device across all OS platforms. It may take time for it to hit the Apple App Store and Google Play Store servers globally.

This concludes our phased rollout for 1.39.


Yep same issue on PC.

Actually can’t pair and doesn’t show up yet in game the icon is there and steering works. Issue is I usually turn it off and that’s now impossible.


Not in my Zwift PC yet…

PS: never mind, just got it :wink:

Same for me on Kickr bike v2.
First you think there’s no steering on the paring screen, then you realize steering is active but can’t be disabled.

Another issue is the rider list on right-hand side goes crazy. Can’t return rideons anymore. As soon as I move the cursor towards the orange thumb, the list goes up&down (on windows 10).

Yeah, I just checked and it had sneakily updated itself some time earlier :crazy_face:

Given steering is a more regular thing now, does that (hopefully) mean we will no longer get that FutureWorks feedback pop-up?


Please fix this strong light effects ASAP…it’s a nightmare to ride in rain.

And check the Nearby Zwifters…everytime i moved a mouse the Nearby list goes crazy. If i switch the mouse OFF all was fine.

A way around this if you don’t want steering is to pair kickr bike with ANT+ which is what I do.

This mainly because I just want to ride and not worry about having to steer left and right. You also end up pushed everywhere outside of the draft with steering enabled so I prefer it off.


That push to the side happens only when events have steering disabled and you have it turned ON…but now all events by default will have it ON.

Would prefer Zwift fix what they broke. Have steering actually show in the pairing screen when connected.

It has happened to me in normal rides too and with robopacers.
