Corrupt external HD? I've no idea, last time games went missing someone had the selection choice wrong (on top right of screen in games and apps). Odd that it asks you to install them from gamepass. Can't see a couple of games deleting themselves though, very strange.

Yeah it could be something to do with the external HDD. The UI is a bit laggy so hopefully it just had a hiccup.

I'm sure the few times I have deleted games it's a fairly lengthy process and not the sort of thing that could happen accidentally.

It's not that complicated or long, it's just the Y button when on the games tile in 'games and apps' and selecting uninstall, then it will ask if you want to un-install all of it if it has DLC but if it doesn't it just the first 2 steps afaik.

Hopefully hard resetting console (hold button down etc) will bring games back and make UI better. Could be Xbox Live too, was acting up for a mate last night, we couldn't see him online and he couldn't see us but we played PUBG together for a few hours in a party. :lol: :fp:

Sometimes the Xbox needs to re-index the content across it's storage devices so it could be the reason for missing stuff. Especially if it's a portable hard drive you are unplugging and plugging in. So the content will still be there on the hard drive, you just have to wait for your Xbox to pick it up.

Not convulated as such but enough steps that you couldn't accidentally delete a game.

I'm never sure if it's Live or my Xbox as the I have had to hard reset the X a couple of times to pick up the WiFi.

I've never unplugged the external HDD but hopefully it's that. Thanks.

I had that Wifi problem with my OG X1, roughly once a week or so but my X1X is fine over wifi, I fixed the OG X1 using one of those electrical socket thingies that means you can bring a wired connection to it.

Just a heads up, Mark Of The Ninja Remastered is now available as a free download for anyone that owned the original. :-)

Unless there has been a monster update it looks like my Xbox deleted MCC. It currently says I have a 77.17GB download to install.

Sometimes the games don't show up on mine that are installed on the external HDD if the wires been nudged that's plugged in to the back. Unplug and plug it back in usually sorts it out.

Tried that and it hasn't worked. Not a massive problem as I'm sure the save data will be ok and I had an email from Sky this morning saying that they are increasing my download speed. Just a weird thing to happen.

Loving the Xbox one x - cracking machine. One issue - finding the NPC speech on gears of war 4 unbelievably crackly in the campaign. Anyone else had this issue?

Pretty offputting and bizarre as not having similar issue with any other games

October 2018 Xbox Update Rolling Out Today

If we could pull your attention away from exploring the beautiful scenery and becoming a Horizon Superstar in historic Britain with Forza Horizon 4, we have some new Xbox One features to share. The October 2018 Xbox Update adds new ways to express yourself with Avatars, interact with your console with Voice Skills, and enjoy your favorite streaming content. Here’s a rundown of what’s new:

New Xbox Avatars

The new Xbox Avatars are expressive, creative and, most importantly, bring to life the community of fans they represent. The Avatar Editor features a wide range of body types, and the entire Avatar closet supports all of them, enabling you to uniquely tailor your Avatar however you see fit.

Avatars will appear across your Xbox One. You will see your own Avatar on your profile, as well as the profile pages of anyone who has chosen to represent themselves as an Avatars. You’ll also find Avatars on activity feed posts, Friend blocks on the Home screen, Gamerscore leaderboards, club headers, profile comparisons, and more. In addition to all the items that are available at launch, we also have a new Avatar Store where you can obtain even more new Avatar items, including licensed designs from Halo, Gears of War, and more. With new content every month, the Avatar Store is a diverse marketplace of clothing, outfits, props, and accessories to make your Avatar even more unique.

Once you’ve created your new Avatar, you can use the Photobooth feature to capture a great photo of your Avatar to use as your Gamerpic. In addition to the mood that you set for your Avatar, you can also use the Photobooth to pose your Avatar using a multitude of different emotes, each of which can be paused and advanced frame-by-frame with more control than ever before. Rotate and zoom controls help you capture the exact pose that you’re looking for, and a wide variety of background colors enable you to set the scene.

If you prefer your Xbox Original Avatar, that’s okay too! The new Xbox Avatar Editor also enables you to compare and choose which version of the Xbox Avatar best represents how you want to be seen on Xbox Live. If you choose to represent yourself as an Xbox Original Avatar, all the content from your Xbox Original avatar’s closet continues to be available via the Xbox Original Avatars app on Xbox One and Windows 10.

Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa

The Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa is available today in the U.S. This feature enables people to use their voice to navigate and interact with Xbox through Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices – expanding voice navigation beyond previous Kinect and headset capabilities. With the Xbox Skill, people can use voice commands to power on/off their console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. For example, if you have the Xbox skill enabled on your Echo just say “Alexa, launch Forza Horizon 4” and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch Forza Horizon 4. Look for the Xbox Skill in the Alexa Skill Store or the Cortana Skill Store to get started. To set up Alexa, just say, “Alexa, open Xbox” and to set up Cortana, just say, “Hey Cortana, open Xbox”, or search for “Xbox” in the assistant skill store. To learn more about this new feature, see our previous post. - https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2018/09/06/ ... d-devices/

Dolby Vision video streaming on Xbox One

Xbox is committed to bringing rich entertainment options to our fans. Today we are excited to launch our latest entertainment option, Dolby Vision™ HDR video streaming support across Xbox One S and Xbox One X! Dolby Vision enables select TVs to deliver enhanced HDR with dynamic scene-by-scene precision and accuracy versus standard HDR, which is static for the entire movie/show you are watching. If you have a TV that supports the latest version of Dolby Vision and a Premium Netflix subscription, jump in and experience incredible brightness, contrast, and color for yourself today! Dolby Vision on Netflix with a premium subscription will be supported at launch with more Dolby Vision apps adding support in the coming months.

To enable Dolby Vision on your console, navigate to Settings -> Display and sound -> Video output -> Video modes -> Allow Dolby Vision. If you need more assistance setting up the feature or want more information on supported TVs, check out this blog post. - https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2018/08/30/ ... em-update/

We’ll have more to share soon on additional features releasing to Xbox One this fall.

Flashback! I didn't even know it was getting an XB1 release. I'll be revisiting this one - it's pretty much a fixture in my all-time top five games.

It's an old 2D platformer with puzzle elements, Cora... it launched on the Amiga in the early 90s and has been ported to many other systems since then.
