omg :?

In the app search for Hellblade. You can see all games by selecting Show All in all games category. The app is in beta mode - so I am pretty forgiving

I can't use search or select any of the categories in the Xbox App, just get an error but it is a beta like you say.

uninstall and re-install, I would recommend that. I did it 3 times before I managed to get working well.

I fixed the downloading of Hellblade. In the settings if you select D drive (or your game drive) as default the game will still download and install in C. There was an error in my C that prevented the game to download - probably a conflict in the cache somewhere.

To fix it you need to first change in your Windows settings where you want apps to install. :oops:

Settings / Storage / Change where new content is saved

Change the drive for "New apps will save to"

In the Xbox Beta app change the settings to the same drive

So its typical Microsoft, 70% there, we leave the remaining 30% of our O/S for you to figure out :roll:

It would seem I’ve not updated windows in a while because this has took about 4 hours!

Are all gamepass PC games achievement enabled? Wondering if that’s a requirement.

So about 50% of things I try to download in gamepass just gives an error. Microsoft, software experts!

so this is a bit janky

last night I started installing Wolfenstien II and switched off my PC around the 40% mark. This morning instead of recognising where the installation left off and continuing - you know like literally all other game clients - nope this failed to finish it off and I when I press install for the game - it does nothing

Doing a little hunting of my own I got access to the app folder (where the games are installed) and found the Bethesda folder but I cannot delete it. I will try again later today but this kind of sucks.

This whole Microsoft app thing is a bit of a mess from its initiation as Metro with Win 8, the woeful library that is the app store to the fact that no one is making Win 10 apps anymore because...why bother.

Pitiful.

So the lesson here guys is that when you start installing a game - don't stop it any way and pray you do not get a powercut !

EDIT - OK i figured it out. Bring up the Microsoft Store app and in there is a arrow at the top right that shows updates. In there you can re-trigger the installation. Its a manual thing that is not started automatically. :roll:

Spoke too soon, not working again! Also the ones I already downloaded wont load.

It would seem its any game that requires administrator approval to install and loads of people are having the same issue. :cry:
