JudgeSmails was kind enough to send me a FR, before he requested the enrollment in the Preview Program. MS just never sent the invite. I assumed it was a type of lottery...
Alright man, invite sent. Good luck!

Finally got my first Fatality on Mortal Kombat X when I switched to the single match mode. Have not had a chance to get one during the story mode (makes sense not to kill anyone off since you may play as them down the road).

Played the free Neverwinter last night. Felt and looked like WOW from about 6 years ago. Definitely not next gen at all. But hey, it's free! I did like how they smartly mapped MMO controls to the gamepad. Shows it can be done well with limited loss from the PC.

Side question, anyone ever have game downloads get stuck in Queue and continually crash? My system is trying to download an update to Sunset Overdrive and NBA15 from EA Access. Both hit 14-15% and then crash. Restarting or deleting and reloading do not work. I entered the error code on XBOX Support and it was useless, just said to try again. Really annoying, my OCD hates seeing games just sitting in queue like that.

If they're updates, try loading the game and updating within.

Not sure what your setup is but I linked my issue back to my external drives. I have been having this issue for a couple of months now. Especially when I had a game pre install like Mortal Kombat. I tried to transfer the game from the external to my internal and it would state "installation stopped at 21%. So I did a system reset and erased everything on my internal to factory default. Started to install all the games I currently play on my Internal and have not had one issue since. It also resolved the issue I was having with games and apps taking too long to load error message. The games still on my external work and load up fine but it looks like it was the link to my issues.

Out of the three XB1s with externals it was the only one with this issue. The other systems have new externals I bought brand new. This one had been reformatted from what I used on my PC.

I am going to just buy. New drive and put that one back on my gaming PC.

I got my invitation for the preview a few days ago (thanks tampabuc) and just waiting for microsoft to push the update, my status is pending. Just wondering if instead of using an antenna could I plug my fios cable to it and will it display the 1 - 99 local channels. I have a tv sub with them but don't have any cable boxes. I can get all the channels I watch through apps or a websites except for fox sports 1 and fx.

It is also a QAM tuner isn't it? I can't remember if it was when I used it with my Boxee Box.

Doesn't anyone else have the Xbox One reset it self to uncompressed stereo from Uncompressed 5.1? It drives me nuts why the system does it. I have to reselect HDMI out and then choose 5.1. Ugh this hardware drives me nuts.

That's not good. Mine is set for 5.1 uncompressed and it has been since for day1. It never changes. Are you in the preview program? Could be a bug where everyone gets reset to 5.1 by default. There are so many updates and improvements to the console, about every two weeks, its hard to keep track of.

250gb ssd

I was thinking of adding a 256GB SSD externally to the Xbox One to improve loading of frequently used games.


Everything I have found shows you need a 256GB drive minimum to store games.


Has anyone used a 250GB SSD? Will the Xbox allow you to store games on it even though its not 256GB?


Thanks


Teddy

I've only had this happen once, but I attributed it to my Kinivo HDMI switch which is finnicky as it is. I had to cycle through the inputs on the switch until I got to the One. I was then able to change the output back to Uncompressed 7.1.

I went with 256gb Crucial Drive. It was around $100 from Amazon an just got a USB3 enclosure ( $14) and now my games boot fast. Especially Forza Horizon 2 that use to take forever...

I think 256GB is the absolute minimum it will accept.

This was mentioned a long time ago, looks like it's here now...

Microsoft Announces Avatar App for Windows 10
Windows 10 Preview users can check it out right now.





As its name suggests, the app will let you change your Xbox avatar or create an entirely new one. You'll be able to access the store as well, allowing you to buy further digital upgrades to your avatar. The app is linked to your gamercard, so once you hit "save" on the app the changes will appear on your Xbox console as well.


Microsoft's director of programming for Xbox Live, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, revealed on Twitter that users can get a look at the app on Windows 10 Preview right now, though not all of the functionality is in place yet. He also says that more info will be revealed later this week.

Windows 10, free for all, hopefully much sooner than I thought...


Windows 10 summer release date could be in July
http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other...uly/ar-AAbodLX


Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10, could be publicly available as early as July, if the CEO of Advanced Micro Devices is to be believed.


While Microsoft announced in March that Windows 10 would be available “this summer,” it has not divulged a definitive release date for the new OS. However, Lisa Su, president and CEO of AMD detailed during the chip manufacturer’s recent earnings call that Windows 10 would launch in July.
