    I haven't got any new screenshots in the loading screen for a while now. The only one I still have is the one from Clinchfield. Then every now and then there is the Advertisement for Rush Hour and the one which Shows me how to make a Screenshot.

    I play on Xbox One S

    Mee too (Series X). To be fair the loading times are so short that not more than those two different screenshots can be displayed at all :D
    But yes- I remember some weeks ago there has been indeed some varation. At least the second one is rush hour now, before it was always the tutorial how to get screenshots on Dovetail Live...

    Their stuff takes priority over the screenshot contest.

    True enough, but formerly they had room for all of them: the Railshot screen, one or two adverts, and the four previous contest winners. Now the cycle has apparently been reduced from 6 or 7 to 3.

    possibly an optimisation already applied? I recall Matt saying on stream the images are held in memory even mid-game.

    Quite so. The files are there; but the loading-screen routine is only showing one of the contest winners alongside the DTG splashes.
