Trying to bring back ride data in ZwiftMap

Many have noticed that ZwiftMap have stopped showing ride data and chat.

That was caused by a change in Zwift earlier this year. Zwift started encrypting the network traffic between the game and the servers, which broke many community tools, e.g. ZwiftMap. If you want to read more about that, find more information in the Zwift Forums or at GitHub where it was announced.

Now, there finally is a preview version (ZwiftMap version 2.3.0) with an new way of getting ride data from Zwift.

Update 2022-12-16: Now at version 2.3.2

Important points:

  • This is only for Windows.
  • It reads Zwift data from memory instead of capturing network traffic. That will make it more vulnerable to changes in Zwift itself. To work around that ZwiftMap will pull some needed configuration files from a ZwiftHacks server/page. That way it should be possible to handle changes caused by new Zwift version without you having to download and update the software itself, at least in theory. Let’s see how it goes in practice…
  • This is a preview/test version. Please report the problems you encounter.

  1. Hey, Jasper!
    Thanx for making this work again. I did a quick test. I joined a group event. While sitting in the pen chat overlay is picking up msg from riders but there are no names. It just says paddock. I noticed it doesn’t pick up msgs from the leader.
    When the event started “paddock” changed to “group event” so there is no way you can link older msg to a rider’s name. For me, that is crucial when leading group rides.
    I will report back if anything else comes up.

    1. That is pretty much the expected behaviour since the rider names isn’t written by Zwift to the log.txt file except when freeriding, but I will probably just display the user id then.
      That the leader messages do not show up is something I can fix, I think.

    1. It ought to be working again now. You do NOT have to download and install again – it was a matter of a configuration which had to be updated to match the latest Zwift version.

    1. I need some more data to troubleshoot that problem. Here is how you can help with that if you’re interested.

      Download the files from this Dropbox folder (press the grey Download button next to the blue ‘Save to Dropbox’ button):

      Put the files in a folder somewhere on your PC.

      Launch Zwift and let it at least get to the pairing screen.
      Now, run the DATACOLLECTOR.cmd script and let it gather data (follow the instructions it displays).

      Finally, upload the following 3 files:

      – zwiftapp.exe.dmp (a memory dump)
      – zwiftbroadcaster.log.txt
      – log.txt (your Zwift log file)


      1. Jesper, did a ride yesterday and then it worked, so I guess you made some tweaks?

  2. Version 2.3.2 was just uploaded. It fixes a problem in locating log.txt in some setups which meant that player ID could not be determined, thus blocking for finding the rider data properly.

    @Jose Vicente, this should fix your problem.

    1. Indeed… now it works.
      With Zwift version 1.32.1 and ZwiftMap version 2.3.2
      Thank you
