Can this be downloaded as an offline update for use with a USB stick? If so, can you please point to where I can download it. Thank you.

Hi CrimsonReLLiK,


No offline update files are ever made available for preview / insider enrolled consoles.


The only offline update files available are for general release and don't work on Insider enrolled consoles.


Are you having update problems ?

In fact I am having problems at the moment.

Currently I am having connection issues with my internet. The connection issues are completely unrelated to my xbox and are within my home network. It will be a while before I can fix my stability issues due to financial reasons.


But here's where my problem lies....

If I drop connection for even a moment during the update process, the xbox shoots me back an error and gives me the basic options; retry, check network, skip & stay offline, etc...

Now I have to restart the process from the beginning.

Furthermore, I can actually finish the download (step 1) and move on to the verify (step 2)... and then If I drop connection, guess what? That's right I have to start all over again. Download, Verify, etc... It doesn't keep what I downloaded at all.

Now normally this is not much of an issue with the little patches, but when a 3.6gb patch drops, I really can't be downloading a 3.6gb file over and over again. Just to hope that it doesn't fail and then find out I need to completely restart the process.

This is where an offline option could have helped me.


If I dare trying it a fourth time (yes I am still stuck updating @ build-1609), I will write down and take note of my error numbers/messages. I was a little busier earlier and just decided to give it a try a few times and forego those details.

This has happened other times during smaller updates, but I usually was successful the very next try.


Getting:


Something went wrong: 0x8007001f 


every time I start assassin's creed origins from disc


Xbox one x scoprio edition

signed into live

disc installed and patch installed

Looks like exact same notes in this build. Did we get the exact same build again in alpha, patch note wise? Nothing seems different.

Does anyone know why they did away with the "4K Assets: Installed/Uninstalled" indicator when going to Manage a game? 

Im having party chat mixer issues when I'm trying to turn up the game volume it doesn't work like it used to.

I'm seeing the same thing, I thought it was an update issue so I unenrolled my console and it's still not showing it so I think it's bigger than preview.
