Photek we have more content on our Xbox's than you that's why the updates always kill our systems for the first few days and yours is buttery smooth.

The problem stems from the Xbox One file system needing to check every single file on the storage pools. If you have a lot of content then the HDD is busy reading/writing and that's why you can't do things like launch games, have laggy menu response times and images not loading etc because the drives are running at 100% searching everything.

I have 2TB's and the internal of my One X all full, so thats 3 TB's and when I swap in and out the full 1TB external they pop up as soon as I plug them in.... :?:

If you have a 20TB drive full of stuff then fair enough.

It's not file size, it's quantity that's the problem. A 100GB game takes as long to check as a 30MB add on.

You probably have like 100-200 games and maybe 60 add ons? I have about 20 games installed on my internal and 1,500+ addons

The Xbox One OS, and by extension the Series OS, isn't designed for huge amounts of content. The internal SSD on the Series consoles should alleviate the problem with the OS though.

Never mind that. I want to know how Photek has got Sea of Thieves running on an OG Xbox.

:lol: I meant OG Xbox One of course. :shifty:

1500+ add ons... a very particular case then. The OS should work better yes but you may end up with a similar problem. :dread:

The Series X|S controller allows you to have multiple profiles so need to resync it.

Oh, this is damn EXCELLENT news. I wanted this more than the cloud streaming. Xbox gaming on my 12.9” iPad Pro in bed.

But how utterly backward of Apple, that they allow one and not the other.

Not really much they can do about it, though. You still need a second device to do remote streaming, with the first only acting as a monitor that's outputting the image. Same as iOS or Google or Amazon or plenty of other things doing so from a mobile device to a TV. With Game Pass and xCloud, they specifically took issue with the fact they would recieve none of the revenue from Microsoft putting their games on the Apple store through just one app (even though the likes of Netflix and Disney+ are also the same).

Jesus. Can you really not look at your achievement list on the new app? Just had a look and I can't see it anywhere. Awful.

Not ideal, but at least you can check achievements on the website:
https://account.xbox.com/en-GB/Profile

Or sign up for the superior TrueAchievements.

The app is absolute dogshit, and is rightly getting called out on social media. I'm still rocking the old one, couldn't live without the ability to see achievements.

What they have done with the app is good with being able to delete and mess about with your drives but holy strawberry float, why jettison things that were standard in original app? :fp:

They seem to be moving away from Achievements. They're hidden now across all of Xbox just like avatars.

I spent about an hour designing one for the first time the other day. Should have known that would be the kiss of death.

They're perfectly visible on Xbox? They even still have the monthly leaderboard. I don't think they would move away from Achievements as it has a very large community, they've already had massive kickback over the app.
