Even though it’s not one of the most popular games in the world, Generation Zero has still managed to gather thousands of interested players.

And some of those players have actually decided to upgrade their current gaming setups and opt for some updated devices.

We’re, of course, talking about the new generation of Xbox consoles. And we all know that the most powerful one of these new models is the Series X.

However, if you are planning to play Generation Zero on your new Series X machine, remember to turn Auto HDR off, or suffer the consequences.

Auto HDR makes Generation Zero glitch on Xbox Series X

Fancy playing a few rounds of Generation Zero on your brand new, state-of-the-art console? No problem there, just remember one key aspect before you install the game.

Don’t get the wrong idea, we’re not saying it won’t work on your Series X, we’re just reminding you that you should most definitely turn Auto HDR off before you install it.

Why? Because if you don’t, you will be in the same predicament as this Reddit user, who didn’t realize what he was doing wrong until he had to install the game twice to find out, and a third time to actually play it.

Of course, no one could have seen this coming, so it’s hard to anticipate something like this happening, especially when you spend so much money on your new gaming rig.

More so, when that expensive console comes from Xbox, you sort of have a guarantee that it won’t malfunction, bug, or glitch when you play a three-year-old game.

However, this one did, just because the above-mentioned feature remained turned on, by default, and the game was unplayable.

If this happens to you as well, don’t throw the controller at the screen, as that won’t really solve the glitch. Simply uninstall it, turn off Auto HDR and reinstall the title.

The user that’s spotted this flaw also sent an email to devs, so we expect this issue to be fixed in the near future. But, just to be on the safe side, disable it before you start a gun battle with your friends.
