Game Update 1.46 [August 2023]

I think issues could be solved, but it would be a pretty fundamental change to how ir currently works. Afaik.

zwit needs some fundemantal changes in certain areas :wink:

@calfzilla could you please share more detail on what you are experiencing? If you have a video I can take that as well and make sure it is included in the internal bug report.

For “broken powerups” if you turn into the climb portal from a pace partner ride (and probably from any free ride but I haven’t tested that) the power-up selections show the feather/10xp/250xp “spin” but the actual selection is the same as if you were out in the “regular world” for lack of a better term. See this video where it spins the feather/xp options and then I get a draft van. First time I noticed this, in one climb I received 3 vans, 2 aeros, 1 feather, and 4 10xps.

As for “chat is broken” there’s just no chat in the climb portal. You can send a message, you can see it yourself, but there’s no chat from anyone else.

From a technical standpoint? Yes, to be technically correct.

The hard part about those however is that we don’t yet have the other required components within Zwift itself to make those events work. The obvious example here is ZRL where you can finish differently depending on how you go with segments, but that’s all done after the race on WTRL’s site. The same is true for points or segment races on ZwiftPower, etc.

It’s a next step we’ve identified to get us to a better competitive experience for everyone, though I have no dates or more information for you beyond that right now.

hopefully your collaboration with IndieVelo might lead to some new race formats, or a just buy them already? :rofl:

No, nothing to do with the Racing Score @xflintx . To me that’s at the point that steering was when Repack Ridge was first added 3 years ago, not ready to be deployed across the platform. Maybe it’s further along, I don’t know.

A large % of races are configured as points races in ZwiftPower, and raced as such - the results screen that’s shown at the end of those races is more misleading than nothing. As a race organizer, I’d rather have the ability to turn off the in-game results screen than show one that has the wrong results on it.

Can we have the results screen go away then? It’s worse than nothing when it’s wrong.

If you have the ability to know if the event is a scored on points, then it would be preferable to just bring up a screen that says you have to check some other source for the actual results. That would be better than providing incorrect results that the rider might never double-check on the authoritative source. There are quite a few points races in Zwift that aren’t ZRL. Those riders could be directed to ZwiftPower for results. For ZRL events they could be directed to check WTRL for results. I don’t know how feasible this is but it would be more acceptable than wrong answers.

A post was split to a new topic: Game settings reset to default [AppleTV] [tvOS 16.6]

Please, no. Isn’t it useful that you can give out twice the number of Ride-On bombs using Companion and Play?

Windows user here, wouldn’t update at all - had to do an uninstall and reinstall to get it.

It’s a phased rollout so pot luck who gets it…… I don’t like it personally and don’t really see the benefit, unless it’s a real big change that needs wider testing, I’d rather everyone just got it at the same time.

Agreed; just give me the relevant information I want:
Average Power, Normalized Power, Avg HR, Max HR, total distance, total ascent.

And maybe the name of the event as a reminder.

(With the subtext of “be sure to check the event host to see your finished stats”)

Personally I’m already kind of upset the ‘new’ race finish screen doesn’t even have heart rate on it; how’d that get missed?

Title Music is still controlled by the 3D World Sounds slider.

Macbook pro M2 pro 14, Still no shadows and details like in 1.45…I’m a little disappointed

@calfzilla the chat radius is confined to a ~500 meter radius or ~750 meter radius when in a group event. Based on your video it looks like the Zwifters Nearby were all outside this distance. Do you remember if they were ever within the 500m radius and do you know if other members were trying to send chat messages? We’ve been so far unable to repro the chat issue in Climb Portal, but any additional detail you can share will help us with the investigation into what you are experiencing.

Ok, no change is expected at this moment. The updates for M1 and M2 Macs weren’t included in 1.46, but are still currently on track to be delivered very soon.

Unrelated to the video. I’ve tried chatting a few times in climb portal and never get a response and have never (ever) received a public chat in climb portal.
