Settings Menu

Want to change your sound volume? Graphic quality? There is now a 'Settings' screen accessible by clicking the 'Settings' icon on the 'Menu' screen:

From here, you can separately control in-game sounds (menu and notifications) as well as the 3D world volume (environmental sounds). You can also adjust your Game Resolution (this may impact performance). 

For those of you using a Basic Setup (speed sensor and classic trainer), you can choose between Virtual Power Modes for supported trainers. Classic Mode may reduce the jumpiness of the wattage display experienced using zPower, but it will also reduce responsiveness during sprints, as it does not account for acceleration. The zPower option is currently only available for Kurt Kinetic trainers, the CycleOps Fluid 2 and the JetBlack Z1.

If you have a Smart Trainer, we've added a Trainer Difficulty setting:

Trainer Difficulty allows you to scale the feel of the climbs from 0 to 100%. This won't make you any faster or slower as it still takes the same amount of power (watts) to move your avatar (by default, Zwift treats the gradient as half of the true grade).

Zwift supports Full Screen. If you're on a PC, the option to make Zwift full screen will appear above User Interface in the 'Settings' menu (requires a restart to take effect).

If you're on a Mac with Yosemite (10.10), click on the green full screen icon in the upper left-hand corner of your window (no restart required):



Older versions of OSX will have the full screen icon in the upper right-hand corner of your window (no restart required): 

You can choose when to show Leaderboards. The leaderboards can now also be on, cycling through each Sprint and KOM/QOM or you can have them show up when those points are near.

Snapshots now automatically upload to your Zwift feed. You can set Image Uploading to upload as you like. It's up to you!

  • Always - Zwift will upload an image every time - shots taken by Zwift as well as your own.
  • Only My Shots - Only your snapshots will be uploaded.
  • Never - No images will be uploaded.

You can turn off Group Chat. Sometimes you just need to concentrate on your ride without all the chatter from everyone else on the course.
