When uploading images in Windows 10 (latest Zwift version) and removing the HUD elements (using the icon) the image gets partially black. Deselecting HUD shows the normal image again. The image is also uploaded to e.g. Strava in this way. I found examples in the forum of full black images, but not partially. First time this happend to me.
Specs and set up:
Intel i5 6500
MSI GeForce GTX 1650 low profile
Latest driver. Checked today in Nvidia app
Running: Ultra profile and resolution of 3840x2160
Was France and was a Group ride: Watch the Femmes - Stage 5 on Douce France. I made a screenshot of the upload screen in Zwift as well, but current not on my Zwift PC so cannot upload it here now. .Will do later. I will also test if issue is still happening.
I see in my Zwift images folder on my PC this started for me in June this year, but only saw the issue in the Zwift upload screen yeslterday for the first time. Also my old Strava images do not show an issue.
The so called “clean” versions of the images (without the HUD) have this issue. See example of one with and without the HUD (clean):
Driver is 511.79, GeForce Experience not set to auto-update, but I can see that an update is available (not sure which ver). I do tend to update it when I see an update available but haven’t for a small while.
Got a recommendation, or at least a target version to try?
EDIT: Found a version of driver same as yours Dave so will have a crack at that over the next day or so. Looks like I can replicate with most of my ride’s 18:11 “clean” pics having this issue. Manual pics ok.
I dont have it in running in the background since earlier this year as it annoyed me with semi-frequent update reminders so the day I got rid of it was the last time I updated (edit: but I do run it when I have wanted to update the driver, not that I have cause/need to). Kind of been sticking to the “if it aint broke” approach.
Tbh, I’m not phased by the pics, but keen to see stuff like this sorted for those that do want it sorted.
Reason I mention GFE is because it has other effects on how the game runs (see the old launcher issue). I only ever allow Windows to install the Nvidia driver and I’ve never seen this black screen problem on any of the builds I’ve done or my own systems. It’s definitely a problem with Zwift and not anything you’re doing wrong, just trying to understand it.
I’m not smart enough on the pc side to do anything other than what the manual says Having said that, appreciated any advice I’ve gleaned from you building my pc and keeping it fine tuned. Now that I know I dont need GFE for driver updates … its consigned to the bin.
@shooj and Zwift support folks - here’s my recent Zwift pics folder sorted from latest to oldest. You can see when this started and given regularity of riding, you should be able to pin this down to the specific update and therefore the change that caused it (coincides with Jon’s first mention too). I dont have logs for the older ones but kept this weeks.
Yeah the driver version makes literally no difference whatsoever to performance or stability in my experience. That’s why I just let Windows install it on a clean Zwift-only build, which is the least amount of fuss/effort/time and ensures you don’t end up with any bloatware.
Changed my resolution from 4k to 1440 in Zwift and the issue is gone. Checked the saved images on my computer from my last ride in 1440 to the ones with the issues runnig at 4k and the strange thing is the 4k ones are only at 1080 res and the ones in 1440 have the correct resolution.
