    Series X - Shrinkable Games Black Screen


    Just curious if this is happening for anyone else.

    I go to the free up space section.

    It has two sections, orphaned DLC that’s been identified, and then it looks for “shrinkable games”.

    I was able to delete some DLC just fine. I then wait for the Xbox to finish searching for shrinkable games. Once I press down to go from DLC to the shrinkable games list on the left pane it fades (quickly)
    to a black screen.

    It will also immediately go to a black screen if I am already on the shrinkable games menu on the left pane when the list finally loads.

    It’s not a crash as I can press the Xbox button on the controller to go to the Home Screen.

    :)

    Series x black screen

    Just turned on my series x and black screen of nothing!

    Was working earlier and updating games.
    What kind of Tv did you have?

    If it's a brand new tv capable of 120hz of refresh rate you have to make some changes on your tv.

    try to go to settings and try by esclusion, set Vrr of and try, 120hz of ecc. (set of 4 2 2 and leave 10bit colour)

    It's a quite known issue, hope MS will fix it asap.

    shrinkable games

    Hi ChopDaLyricolig,

    Thanks for asking a great question here on the forums. As our Ambassadors have outlined, it is essentially a way to make a bit more storage on your console by removing old add-ons and "shrinking" the space taken up by currently installed (and mainly
    unused) games. If you happen to have an external hard drive, you can also manage the storage on it in this manner as well.

    Here's a great support article about how to enable that: Xbox One system settings.

    Since there is no further information to add and in an effort to minimize repetitive answers we will be locking this thread, but if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to come back to the Xbox forum (Do not repost the same question
    or thread as that would violate the Xbox Forum Guidelines).

    Happy gaming and thanks again for coming to the forums.

    shrinkable games

    Shrinkable games are games that allow "cleaning and organization" of installed files, reducing the size it occupies on the storage device.

    As a couple of the others have mentioned, maybe it just strips away the things you dont need. Texture Packs, additional languages, unneeded data that could be streamed from the cloud rather than stored on your xbox.

    Sure would help with the limited space though.
