FIX your bloody game pass app on PC before doing something fancy

So how do you really feel? I'm not sure I can tell. 🤡

I have problems from time to time with the app on PC. I mostly don't play it on PC any more. Not saying there's a connection but it's certainly not making me want to play more on PC.

I use it just for sea of thieves, never had any issues, oh and for some indie games.
I am now reinstalling Ascent hopefully it works. if not I think I just unsub. I rather pay full price of games than to play Russian roulette with Gamepass

I bought the game on Steam. The GP version is an old build of the game. Difficulty settings are missing. Lol. Ya, just unsub and get the Steam version.

Hope it works out for you, cheers good sir
the reinstall trick works. I think it was due to I downloaded the preload version. For reason, it allowed me to download almost a month before release and not compatible with the release version.

but I am surprise there is no update fro the game like you would for other preload game if there is a difference between the versions like steam or epic store.

Did you download it wired or wirelessly? I tend to have issues with the latter most often

Game Pass has been pretty good for me so far. $1 for 3 months of service. Getting to play several of the X1 games I missed out on. Streaming games on the PC has been pretty good so far, but on the Nvidia Shield TV...some of the games have horrible lag, primarily the racing games. The EA Play launcher is pure garbage. Games download very slowly and the app runs my cpu at 99% most of the time it's being used.

Tried to preload Age of Empires and Forza Horizon 5 and it won't even start. Get a generic error that says check for Windows updates and try reinstalling some service. In either case it doesn't help. I did install a couple other games within the last month maybe without issue.
