    I am finding the tool no longer works at all to select any world that is not the Main or Guest world. If you select a world that is not one of these, then upon launching Zwift, and Main world will load.

      zwift-preferences / ZwiftPref both work fine with the latest version of Zwift (I just tested it with 1.0.34056 on a Windows PC). It could be that your prefs.xml files is corrupted (a quick fix is to delete it and let Zwift re-create it) or that you haven’t submitted/saved the change to preferences before you launched Zwift.

      Finally, remember to click on the name of the world at the top of the Ride screen before you press the Ride button.

        Thanks Jesper – I’m not sure I understand this bit: “Finally, remember to click on the name of the world at the top of the Ride screen before you press the Ride button.”

        If on a given day the Main World is London, and the Guest World is Innsbruck, and I want to ride Watopia, then how will I do that?

        Also, is it still possible to use the n hack via editing the prefs file? I cannot see that line of code any more.

        I am definitely submitting the selections in the Tool (and have updated both Zwift and the Tool). I will try your trick to delete the xml file.

        I am also discussing with Zwift the fact I cannot see any workout “over the road” banners while in the guest world. Seems some video resources are not appearing in the Guest, at least for me. Would be interested to hear if anyone else is having the same issue.

          I mean that as shown approx. 10 seconds into the video you have to click on the name of the world at the top of the screen – otherwise Zwift will load Watopia when you press ‘Ride’.

          Just to clear up misunderstandings. There is not such a thing as a ‘Main’ which changes. There is a schedule for the ‘Guest’ world, and Watopia is always on EXCEPT if you use the world hack.

          And yes, you could modify prefs.xml by hand if you prefer – zwift-preferences/ZwiftPref just helps you do it.

            I apologise, I have successfully used the tool to select ANY world, at any time. Thanks Jesper for your help (and patience) with this.

            It’s good to hear that you made it to work. Persistence is rewarded, it seems 🙂

    Thanks again Jesper – I’m really sorry to bother you with this. I’m starting to think I’m *really* thick in the head…

    Please forgive me if I’m really missing something here, but if Watopia is always available to ride, and the Guest World could be any of the others on rotation, then if on any given day Watopia and London are the two worlds available to ride, and I wish to ride Innsbruck, how can I ride Innsbruck in this situation?

    Also, it seems the old ” n ” line of code is no longer in the prefs.xml file. I’d be interested to learn how the ZwiftPrefs Tool is currently altering that value, and in what file it is making the edits.

    ZwiftPtefs is not able, as far as I can see, to enable riding in any but the two worlds available in the main program on any given day.
