So this is why it took a coupla restarts and finally two cold reboots to get Zwift running this morning. Apparently the update choice has not been implemented on my system and so getting it going was a 15 minute exercise in frustration. Glad I didn’t have a special event on the calender…
@Mark_Crane_TOG_G_65y Sorry to hear about the issue - could you share a bit more information about what happened? If you can also confirm which version of the game you’re running as well, that would be helpful (1.50 is rolling out gradually and is only out for a small number of Mac/Windows/Android users currently).
If you’re using Windows or Mac, the “Update Later” option is now available in Zwift Launcher version 1.1.10 which should have been automatically updated on your device, but if not, you can download the latest version of the installer at Download Zwift on iOS, MAC, PC, or Android Devices | Zwift. If you’re on Apple TV, iOS, or Android, you can turn on automatic updates in your respective app stores which will update Zwift in the background and should ideally cause less disruption in the future.
Evan, I’ll double check the version I’m running when I get home but here’s what happened as well as I can remember since I was logging on at 0530:
Woke up the computer, a i7-6700 workstation, with a fancy SSD and GPU
Looked at Zwifthacks for figger out what event I was going to run
Decided on the Ascenders ride starting in 30 minutes
Selected the Zwift link from ZH and registered on the Zwift site
Opened Zwift, put on the HRM, kicked the pedals on the Wahoo bike so it would pair up quicker
Got through the inital loading and selected the early join for the ASC event
Then the Zwift window minimized
I un-minimized it and then it went back to minimized
I closed Zwift and re-started
Repeated 5 thru 8 a coupla times
Shutdown and cold re-booted the computer
And then it worked for the rest of the event
When I finish a Zwift event, I log and save the event parameters with Zwiftalyzer and my latest Zwiftpower data in an email to myself
I save the data with screenshots of each window so when I selected it in the email program, there was a new Zwift app download. I imagine this is the latest update because that’s how it usually appears in my downloads.
Miguel and Bernie both were surging ahead on downhills again. Watts required to keep up were once again very frustrating. Worked fine after last patch. As soon as I’m solo or in another pack of riders the issue disappears.
I’m having the opposite problem. I would love to manually request an update to new versions when they become available, rather than wait for the phased rollout to reach me. I’m still on 1.49 of the game (and 1.1.10 of the launcher) and I’m not yet seeing the update. I don’t mind waiting for most updates to get around to me, but there have been a few that I wanted to try immediately and had to wait a day or two. I like having the option to postpone an update, but I would love the ability to install one on demand.
A little context from our POV. We stage rollouts to each OS platform over a few days, so a certain percentage of those devices will receive it with each phase This is done in the event a serious bug escapes - we can limit the impact to a smaller cohort.
Usually, the staged rollout goes well and everyone on all OS platforms will have it by Friday (Saturday, if you’re in the APAC time zones). Thanks for your patience.
