    Games for gold not posting to a download.


    I have tried the "get" button on the game '"Styx: Shards of Darkness"' on both the Xbox and PC. Via Xbox console companion. It does absolutely nothing and doesn't post to a download.

    Games for gold not posting to a download.

    This will only work if your Xbox One is suspended and set to automatically downloaded game updates and stay in Instant-on mode. These are the default settings, so everything should just work. However, if you’ve
    modified these settings in the past, you may need to re-enable them.

    If you’re away from your Xbox One at the moment, feel free to skip this section and just try using the app or website to download a game. It will work if you haven’t modified these default settings in the past.

    First, head to Settings > All Settings > System > Updates. Ensure the “Keep my games & apps up to date” setting is enabled here. If it isn’t, your Xbox One won’t download new games or updates automatically.

    Second, head to Settings > All Settings > Power & startup > Power mode & startup. Ensure your Xbox One is set to “Instant-on” power mode. This means the Xbox One will go into a sort of sleep mode where some
    functions remain active, including background downloads of games and updates. Don’t set it to “Energy-saving” mode or
    it will shut down completely, and you won’t be able to use the remote game download feature.

    You should also ensure that you’ve signed into the Xbox One with the Microsoft account you plan on using on your phone. You can check this from Settings > All Settings > Sign-in, security & passkey.

    How to Start Downloading Games Using Your Phone
    You can download updates from your phone using the Xbox app, available from Google
    Play for Android
    , Apple’s App Store for iPhone, or even the Windows
    Store for Windows Phone
    . This app was previously named “Xbox Smartglass”, but is now just named “Xbox”.

    Download the app and sign in with the same Microsoft account you sign into your Xbox One with. Tap the menu button in the upper left corner and tap “Store” to view the Xbox Store.

    Search for the game you want to install on your Xbox One in the Store. You can either find a free game and tap “Get it free” or purchase a game from here and immediately begin installing it on your Xbox One.

    Once you’ve purchased the game (or tapped the “Get it free” button), you’ll see an “Install on Xbox One” button on its Store page. Tap that button and the app will queue it for download on your Xbox One.

    If you’ve previously purchased a game or downloaded it for free and want to redownload it, just search for the game on the Store and view its page. You’ll immediately see the “Install on Xbox One” button, which
    you can tap to begin the download.

    If the Xbox One is in Instant-on mode and is automatically downloading updates, it will soon begin downloading the game automatically. You can view the download progress on the console itself under Games &
    apps > Queue when you get back to your Xbox One.

    How to Start Downloading Games Using Any Web Browser
    You can do the same thing from the Xbox Store website, too. It works just like the Xbox app for smartphones. You just need to sign in with the same Microsoft account you use on your Xbox One.

    Head to Microsoft’s Xbox Store website and sign in with your Microsoft account. Search for an Xbox One game and either
    purchase it or get it for free, depending on the price.

    Once you have, you’ll see an “Install on Xbox One” button on the game’s web page. Click the button to queue it for download on your Xbox One. If you’re previously purchased a paid game or downloaded a free
    game, you’ll immediately see this button when you view the game’s web page.

    If The Download Doesn’t Start
    If your Xbox One doesn’t immediately begin downloading the game, it’s probably either set to not download updates automatically, or is in Energy-saving mode instead of Instant-on mode. It’s also possible that
    the Xbox One is disconnected from the Internet. The game should still begin downloading when you power on your Xbox One and connect it to the Internet.

    To ensure this works in the future, enable automatic game updates, select Instant-on mode, and ensure you’re signed in with the Microsoft account you use on the Xbox app or on the Xbox website.

    Games are not downloaded via the Xbox Console Companion, they are downloaded through the Windows Store on your PC and in the store on your Xbox.

    Location "Issues" with Battlefield Bad Company 2.

    "Well, the account you're posting with isn't a Gold member, so that could have something to do with it?"

    In my original post, I said that I was using a Gold account to download the game. So me using a free account to post here, shouldn't (and couldn't) affect how my Gold account downloads a game (or rather, doesn't download a game).

    "It should provent you from dl the game. Even you are a free member. It just mean you be charged 4 the dl."

    This makes no sense whatsoever and, as I've stated just recently in this post, I am using a Gold account to download the game, not this one...

    Has anyone else got any ideas?

    Forza Horizon 1 - Games with gold - Xbox One - I can't purchase/download the game.

    The account you are posting with is a silver account.

    You need a full gold membership in order to download games with gold & to play the xbox one games with gold.

    You will also need a payment option like a credit/debit card linked to your account to download the 360 gwg via the xbox one or here on the site.

    Can't Download July Game with Gold

    Sorry but the account your are posting with is a Silver account, not Gold. You would need to have a Gold membership in order to download the game. If you have added a Free Trial card please note that that is not a Gold membership and cannot be used to
    get the free games.
