Zwift Resource Megathread - October 2022 🗺

It’s mentioned plenty of times but probably not in a concise format. Essentially you’d only need to use it if you have issues with the game minimising itself from full screen, and/or you specifically want to use windowed mode but with the same appearance as full screen mode. In my experience proper full screen mode runs much more smoothly than windowed (due to vsync control, which is a whole other topic), which is why I don’t think Borderless Gaming needs to be recommended for everyone. If that makes sense!

Haha, thanks. When it comes to using a PC dedicated for Zwift I’m a big proponent of clean installing Windows, letting it sort itself out and generally doing as little else as possible - unless you’re certain it’s needed, don’t bother doing anything manually.

Updated reference to “Pace Partner” to reflect new name, “RoboPacer.”

A couple media things to add:

The Pink Tron - a podcast from The Herd Racing League

Herd Racing on Zwift - YouTube channel. Weekly broadcast of multiple categories with commentary on Fridays, some other Zwift content

I’ve removed Best Bike for Route (Google sheet) from the first section as the change-log indicated the last updates were in April and it’s likely stale-dated.

Further, the recently added “ZwifterBike” web app seems to use the same dataset but offers a much more user-friendly interface.

Also added a link to the 4iiii Viiiiva HRM & sensor bridge in the technology section. Similar functionality to the NPE-CABLE, it will convert ANT+ signals from sensors to BLE and “bind” them over a single BLE channel. This is useful if you have ANT+ only sensors but want to run Zwift on a device (iPad, iPhone, AppleTV) that only recognize Bluetooth. Further, it can break the 2-device limit of the AppleTV by fusing multiple sensor signals. NOTE: you do NOT have to wear the HRM - it will function as a standalone converter.

“Fog of Zwift” is an upgrade to ZwiftMap.com.

I’ll quote the author’s Reddit post here:

Fog of Zwift

Zwift is not only about racing but also about exploring. With Fog of Zwift you are challenged to ride every single meter of road available on Zwift.

How to get started: Sign in to Strava at zwiftmap.com, and give permission to persist, and process activities. All unknown roads are covered in fog. After your next ride, the newly discovered streets are freed from fog and shown bright.

This feature is inspired by GCN’s video from February where Hank attempts to ride every road of Zwift in one go: Can I Ride Every Road On Zwift In One Go? - YouTube.

It is currently not possible to import your past activities. I might introduce this in the future, but for now, I want to save the servers’ CPUs from too heavy processing and running into Strava rate limits.

Map of Watopia with a gray overlay. Roads and the area around them are bright. Stats shown in the sidebar: 96.9% unlocked, 1007km ridden, total roads in Watopia 101.2km
