Surely on more than one occasion you have gone to “throw” a game and you have encountered a problem: an update prevents you from using it until it is downloaded. The same happens when you acquire it; you must wait for a time that according to your connection to the network can become eternal .
Microsoft has been working to solve this problem for some time and now it seems that the effort is beginning to bear fruit. FastStart is the name of the development by Microsoft to end this problem. We will know what it is and how it works.
Less time to start playing
According to Microsoft, thanks to FastStar the time to start the gamesince we started the download will be halved . This time saving is due to the system they have implemented with FastStart.
Once the download process starts, the system is responsible for analyzing which are the basic files to start the game . Once they are established, the system will give priority to the download so that the user does not have to wait for the entire game to be installed.
FastStart uses an automatic learning system based on Aritificial Intelligence (AI) that detects how users begin to play in order to obtain better results than the “Game Ready” system .
This way you can start the game while the game is still downloading in the background. But to be able to take advantage of this improvement the users will have to make sure that the game that they download is compatible with FastStart for which they will have to look for the identification seal.
In addition, from Microsoft recommend having at least a connection of 20 Mbps , so we are a good number of users who in theory could not access this improvement.
We will have to wait to see how it reaches the market, the first available titles and thus determine if the improvement it brings is as significant as what we have been told.
