Thank you for inviting me to the beta. I downloaded and used it briefly (so far), and here are my initial impressions:
download / install was straight-forward. I ended up not having a 3dAudio.dll (not real name, but close) file that was needed, but got that with a default installation / upgrade of DirectX from Microsoft. Is this a .dll you can include in your install?
Does the game run in “full-screen” mode? I can still see my task bar and the game’s window frame when it runs.
Getting right to riding was quick and easy. However, I stumbled across the “game paused” only when I stopped pedaling. Is there a hotkey or something for this if I want to get stats during the game - or just pause? I suppose just stopping to pedal would work though, so…
It would be nice (after a ride?) to see my current accomplishments and what level I am, how much more I have to go. I don’t believe this is in the “pause” screens, but perhaps I missed it if it is.
On a second small ride, I was having a hard time keeping my connections to the speed/cadence/hr/power. I would be going along, then they would all just go to 0. Then they would come back. I was left wondering if I was out-of-range (i.e. too far for the ANT+ dongle) or if it was something else.
Looking forward to auto-update of Strava, however I was able to manually upload the .fit files, so…
I guess that’s about it for now. I’m really excited to dig in more and go on longer rides as well.
As an aside, I’m a software engineer and would would love to know if there’s more I can help with. If you see an opportunity (pre-releases or something), I’d be interested in helping. Also, if there’s more specific information you’re looking for, or a different/better way to give feedback, please let me know.
Again, thanks for the invite as well!
