    This has happened to me also after the update on just about every route I’ve played.

    Edit: I play on Xbox Series X.

    Not had it so far myself on X or S, just had the dodgy pixels on S, and the cab LoD issues on both.
    Might have avoided it due to VRR, or something else?

    I've seen it a lot just after the update, then I've seen it much less regularly on Series X

    Yes, it makes the game unplayable to me. After this service I am quitting on my base Xbox one until the patch comes out.

    Been wanting to play more but I don't like the white flashes while driving. Want to reach level 50 driver one day.

    Today I was playing other game (Myst) on my XSX and had also white flashings even more often than playing TSW. Maybe these flashings coming form XBOX software or what would be worse, from hardware. Weird. Can someone check it?

    I've still, after many, MANY hours of play across almost every route, not had this problem on my Series X or Series S.

    In case any of my settings turn out to be relevant when Dovetail attempt to reproduce this -
    I have a 1080p VRR monitor.
    I play the game in the respective 60fps modes on both consoles.
    I play with motion blur OFF (Yes, on Series S this means the white spots at the edge of the screen, but these do not flash)

    All I get is the constant flickering of overlapping textures, and the sudden cab texture quality drops.

    Looks to be an issue running across all locos and routes on XBox. Had it occur on South Eastern, GWE, West Somerset and Cathcart. Not a major bug just annoying from time to time.

    It is a bug, because I’m having this problem too and it’s annoying
