  • Four event-only routes will be getting route badges: Queen’s Highway After Party, Hilly Route Reverse, London Classique Reverse, and Park Perimeter Reverse

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Badges screen to unintentionally appear when navigating on the home screen.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause some text elements to display incorrectly on the home screen after changing languages.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Braking Sensitivity setting to not be visible in Settings.
  • The About tab is now available in Settings and contains information about the game version and build number.

Looks like no change with basic shadows on ultra profile. @shooj @evan-zwift can you guys please get @Jon to pay attention to the feedback on this? It’s universally disliked, without a single positive comment from anyone affected.

doesn’t it also stay with the avatar when using the ghost power up, effectively ruining the ghost?

It does when using the basic shadows on iOS at least. The recent Stage 5: Lap it Up monthly races on London, which uses the draft and ghost power ups, showed how useless the ghost power up is now. You can easily see where riders are by just looking for their shadow.

Also, the fire socks still leave trails when the rider is ghosted.

Fire socks are at least something you can control by not wearing them in events with ghost powerups. The smudge show is just universally bad.

Just finished an event on newly updated 1.64.0 on ATV and the most recent update to Android companion app, and my completed group ride does not exist in zwift activities, and ergo was not uploaded to Strava.

Are there server delays right now? Or is this a bug in the new game update? :thinking:

Can no longer use Zwift with PowerToys Fancy Zones since the update. Holding down SHIFT whilst trying to drag the window no longer works.

Is there a reason why I can make an event for three of the new routes but for one I cant ?
The Queen’s Highway After Party isnt available while the others are.

Is it just me, or does this thread (and therefore release of v1.64) begin with Shuji’s post showing being already 14 days ago (Apr 18)?

It’s happened before that Zwift staffers put up a post, initially hidden to us here, some days before an announcement. Then they can make sure it’s all ready to go before simply making it visible to us on the appropriate day, rsther than them having to post it from scratch.

No number of connected devices anymore. Only a green dot with no number inside! I hope this is a bug.

Probably intentional since they have intentionally reduced functionality in other ways with this release

This is a known escaped issue with 1.64. The numbered green dot will return with the next release.
