The Xbox Insider team has started rolling out a new update for Xbox Insiders on the Alpha ring. This update bumps the system to version 1802.180125-1923, bringing with it plenty of bug fixes. Similarly, workarounds for known issues have been mentioned as well.
The changelog for the update details the following fixes:
My Games and Apps
- Fixed an error that resulted in content that was installing/downloading not resuming after a reboot.
- Certain games when installing had been failing to run on first launch until a reboot – this is now fixed.
- Reliability fixes to improve the time it takes for users to join a Party Chat session who had been experiencing long join times.
- Pseudo Localization/Language Translation String Fixes
- Users will no longer see incorrect language translations in the build. If you do encounter any incorrect strings please report a problem.
- Fixed an issue which caused the incorrect profile color to display after powering on the console.
Moreover, the following known issues have identified, along with a workaround for the games installation bug:
- Games that are installed fail to launch. Workaround: If the games are installed to an external drive please copy the game to the internal drive or attempt to delete the title and redownload to fix the launch error.
- We are investigating the inaccurate RGB colors that have been reported when displaying in 4K HDR mode when playing a UHD disc.
- The left and right navigation for selecting date and time during Tournament creation is currently reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
- Left and right navigation in Tournament twists is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
- Left and right navigation in the bracket view of Tournaments is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
Avatars on Home
- Users wishing to represent themselves as an avatar can do so by changing their settings under My profile > Customize profile > Show my avatar.
A rollout for the mandatory system update has already been initiated. Preview Alpha Insiders will be hoping that this update delivers a relatively bug-free experience.
