Xbox One Update: February 2014

122 posts in this topic

Finally got the update just now, first thing I checked was if the Resume games quickly option is still considered Beta. It is. Remaining disabled for now.

So far Forza (when in a race) is the only game that has had any issues and all that would happen is the game would reload basically.

Depending on when you last played AC4, there has been a title update recently, I launched at AC4 yesterday to get greeted with a 2.3GB update or so.

Hrm yeah I wondered that but that list doesnt seem to mention anything, I suspect the size will be preloading some DLC textures etc but no idea.

Auto updates means I only really notice the notification saying it was patched.

Performance updates could mean a number of things but if games look better in the end who's to complain? I bet we'll see more of a update to overall performance with the March update before Titanfall.

Has anyone noticed other things like boot times being quicker or apps/games loading faster etc? Those are some of the things that benefit from "performance" improvements.

It would be nice that if the March update really does improve the way developers use the esram and it does give a huge performance boost like it is rumoured to give they would be able to patch their current games to improve the resolution like on the PS4 with ghosts and AC4.

What about 24hz Bluray voice sync fix? Anyone test a Bluray at 24hz yet?

For me this was fixed a few weeks back with an update to the Blu-ray player app. I've turned 24hz back on and it seems to work without issue now.

MS should fix the battery power indicator on the 360! Even tho it's got it, it's wrong. Like I can recharge the batteries and the thing is flat even if 3 bars are showing. It never gets to 1-2 bars before the controller starts playing up

This topic is about Xbox One...

 

Check Xbox Support for that problem.

I think that's an issue with the battery rather than the OS. How old is it?

Apparently there is a black screen bug with the latest update but this fix might help. Just posting it for future reference; don't think anyone has reported running into it here.

 

Xbox One update - how to fix the black screen problem

 

 

I had this exact problem - I was playing AC 4, and had this issue. After several forced reboots, it came back up and has been working fine ever since.

I had this trying to play the Titanfall Beta, just unplugged the console and went back later.

Had this in AC4 as well but I put it down to using a different monitor from before (I changed not long before the update) but I turned it off then back on and all was fine. I didnt do those instructions as such.

Good thing I posted it then, hopefully it comes in handy for anyone in the coming weeks. Did you guys comment on the issue? I think I must have missed them.

 

Hopefully the March update fixes it for good, but at least there is a workaround in the meantime (Y)

No like I said I initially put it down to an idiosyncrasy of the monitor I was using, that monitor has in the past gone black as well when using Dual DVI via PC. After rebooting the xbox the problem has not reoccured.

Ah ok understood. I've had the same problem you described on 360 and PS3 in the past when I've switched displays. I believe it's because of the preferences / display settings not adjusting correctly. There's a hidden boot up process on PS3 and 4 I think, but not sure X1/360 have anything similar.

 

Glad you got it sorted either way.

Good move. Think there was some people on Neowin disputing it even existed!

i know you're talking about me(by the way i agreed there was an output bug with a certain colorspace setting,just that its not a sharpening filter)

just found this funny, thought id share. from DF today

It didn't solve the problem anyway: while games such as Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Call of Duty appeared smoother and more natural this way rather than using the scaler, forcing 720p output didn't seem to entirely disable the unwanted filter. A close look at edges on a pixel level showed that the sharpening effect (halos around objects) was still present, just operating with a significantly lower intensity.

lol, so it has nothing to do with the upscaler. its still present on native output. how can this be? native 1080p games don't have this issue. dun dun dun,its not a sharpening filter. its a colorspace bug in 720p mode. it only looks worse when upscaled because the image goes through some algorithms. I've said this repeatedly, on a full rgb display, it doesn't happen.

Major just tweeted that people should keep a lookout for invites to test the March update.

Do Gamers' Hangout regulars want pinned topics to discuss the OS updates for X1 and PS4 or would you prefer individual topics for each update?

 

We used to have official topics but the OPs didn't keep them up to date. Wouldn't be much use indexing the updates ourselves even now, as wiki does that already, but you could talk about most wanted / wish list features etc.

 

If not we can close this topic and start a fresh one for the March update.

New topics would keep things more organized instead of one massive thread that could end up being 20+ pages long at least.

That is my personal preference too but I wanted to get some feedback from the rest of you :)

 

We can just have an "official" topic for each big update. As the generation goes on these patch topics don't reach 8 pages for small improvements anyway.
