    Xbox: Special needs Son needs a feature for him NOT to see the profile pictures of others


    Hi there,

    my son is a special needs boy on the autism spectrum. He has been enjoying FH5 until when one of the updates to FH5 started having the game show "profile pictures" of players on the flags flying at Festival Sites.

    As he was previously traumatised by some ugly contents on profile pictures on the internet (unrelated to FH5), he is now extremely sensitive to any profile pictures anywhere. He will be tripped into various obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) whenever he is now exposed to "profile pictures".

    Since that update on FH5, he has been playing less of the game, and avoiding areas near to any of the Festival Sites whenever he plays.

    We are trying to help him strike a balance between playing FH5, and him avoiding seeing the profile pictures on the flags at the Festival Sites.

    We contact Forza Support, who suggests there may be Xbox settings that we can tweak so that the boy will no longer see the profile pictures of others. I also just spoke to Xbox Support, and Kath confirmed no such feature exists today. Would you folks please consider to offer this in future builds of Xbox OS.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Xbox: Is there a privacy setting I can tweak so my son will NOT see the profile pictures of others

    Hi there,

    my son is a special needs boy on the autism spectrum. He has been enjoying FH5 until when one of the updates to FH5 started having the game show "profile pictures" of players on the flags flying at Festival Sites.

    As he was previously traumatised by some ugly contents on profile pictures on the internet (unrelated to FH5), he is now extremely sensitive to any profile pictures anywhere. He will be tripped into various obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) whenever he is now exposed to "profile pictures".

    We contact Forza Support, who suggests there may be Xbox settings that we can tweak so that the boy will no longer see the profile pictures of others. Can this be done?
    Actually I accidentally found out something that might help with this situation so I was messing with my privacy settings a while back and found out if I set all privacy settings to block except for the ones that allow party chat and multiplayer all of my friends and all other players profile pictures appear as xbox default profile pictures

    The first post, that shows the link for the website, is basically correct. The short version of the situation is that because everybody is on shelter at home orders virtually, the Xbox servers are getting a lot more traffic all hours of the day than normal.
    To ease the strain on the servers, they are limiting access to certain features so they can keep the network as stable as possible. Unfortunately this also means they could still disable more features if needed.

    Can’t see mine or others uploaded profile pictures.

    I just tried, but it says I need to have an adult account. Something like that. It’s apparently on child mode or whatever it’s called.

    Since this is currently an Insider/Preview program feature, there is no official documentation for troubleshooting this kind of issue, and you may have encountered a bug.

    I suggest taking your problem over to the
    Insider forums
    for specialized help.
