Great update. Is there a plan for support for Windows 11? I have a Microsoft surface 8 running windows 11 and Zwift will not keep Bluetooth and ant+ paired in the game.

Be interesting to see the updated textures for London, but I’m not sure about this mouse click sound on basically everything.

This is interesting.

Good update and as you suggest the above two things could really improve rider annoyances. It would be great to restart zwift and be able to rejoin a race or event after having a crash. Or whether the rejoin is just like iOS where you can rejoin the activity but are still thrown out the event.

Activity files will now be temporarily saved locally if a Zwifter encounters poor network connectivity or disconnection. These files will be used to attempt to automatically resume the activity on the next login.

This item has been removed from the notes. That feature is a work in progress and was removed from 1.19 as we continue to improve it.

Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the rapid correction. It’s encouraging that this is being worked on.

I am shocked Bug #7 is not in BOLD and Flashing. If this is now fixed then I am so happy but I am also scared to use the U-Turn button now, I have PTSD just thinking about it :wink:

Nothing in the release notes about the new in-game sounds/notifications? Or did I miss that

STILL not fixed the London gradient display bug then? Will you EVER get round to doing that?

Is there a way to get the pedal assist to end early on purpose? I always get launched off the front of the group (usually the C group) when I join and have to coast or soft pedal to let the PP catch up.

So true, I got sick of trying to do multiple ascents of the alpe, and gave up in the end, I really really hope they have fixed this u-turn bug

Nah. It’s been there since they launched London. I can’t see it ever getting fixed.

I second this. It’s also great to see the notification of when your trainer gets disconnected, and the news that they’ve fixed a bug which caused Zwift to crash when you enter a world as well as reducing how often you’re asked about steering; all of these could improve my experiences from the past week or two.
When it lands, I’m really hoping the new UI will enable me to go straight into an event from the home screen, reducing the need for me to load and enter worlds I don’t want to go into.

I found the clicking sound so annoying that I had to completely mute the Game Sound Effects, from the menu that you get when you’re in-game.

It actually used to work. It got broken in one of the updates and has never been corrected.

Anyone else use android? Mine hasn’t updated

Have you guys fixed the bug affecting the performance of the bikes with the new Duraace Groupset? Canyon Aeroad for example? Thanks in advance :ride_on:
