comment How to create and use multiple “dancer cards” in Just Dance 2015 on Xbox One?
What i mean is that the game does not "see" other accounts currently logged in simultaneously. It only records achievements and stats for the "primarily-logged-in" profile. I only have Lego Batman 3 to compare this to, and in Lego Batman, it attaches one user profile to each player and records their achievements separately.

comment How do I stop Xbox One games from running updates *while* playing?
I will try disabling Automatic Updates; it sounded like a "good" feature (saving time, so updates would run while the console was unattended) but I didn't realize it would update during gameplay. Of course it will be hard to prove a negative, so if it "never happens again" I might still not have stopped it. I do not want to disable Instant On altogether. That's not even an option for me. I've marked your answer as "Best", in any case, because it's comprehensive (some of which I already knew, but thank you). Someone googling will find an answer here too.

comment How do I stop Xbox One games from running updates *while* playing?
It's definitely not jailbroken. It's a brand new 1TB version of the console, only had it for about a month. Never owned a 360 or Original Xbox, so I don't know what to expect. This has only happened twice, which is not enough data points for "commonly happening". But I thought twice was enough to ask the question.

comment How do I stop Xbox One games from running updates *while* playing?
Yes, I was connected to the internet (and, presumably, Live, although I don't know how to verify that) when I started up the game. It could be relevant that Xbox is in "instant-on" mode and when I started up the Xbox and game, it basically "resumed" from a previous run. Not started from scratch, sitting at the main menu screen with a message saying "You were last playing as [gamertag] and you've been idle for 24 hours. Press A to continue, Y to switch profile, etc." Then I played for maybe 5-10 minutes (completed a different mission, received achievements, etc) before this occurred.

This question makes me feel old. I remember asking it in the 80s when I logged on to the only BBS in town that had enough phone lines to host a chat room for the first time. :(

A wizard can't shoot himself on turn 1, at least not with force bolt. Have to take off your cloak first.
