Like I said before, this is what really pisses me off game after game with Turn 10. It's like they give zero fucks about community feedback or even just common sense for that matter. Their forums (and social media in general) is chock full of suggestions for common sense improvements, feature requests (many small things like camera position options), etc and they *never* fail to miss the mark on almost every single thing, every single game.

I would say they (Turn 10/MS) have let their heads get so fucking big that they can't smell their own farts. Meanwhile, the game sells in big numbers regardless because nothing else compares to the overall scope and scale of the game (actual quality issues aside.) *sigh.* Really fucking frustrating when you think of what a GOOD manager could have achieved with their massive resources over the past decade. Makes me want to puke when I see blog updates and whatnot showing all the big wigs at Turn 10 driving their Ferraris and shit.

Dan Greenawalt has always been an asshole, and he's the creative director for the series. If you want to see how stuck up their own asses they are, just look at how they reacted to people telling them they got the EB110 completely wrong when they first released it in FM4 (RWD, 500 pounds heavier than it actually is). They fixed it in the next game, but if you noticed the weight is fucked up again in FM7.

I feel like the biggest issues with Forza are things the creative director is fucking up at. I feel like I could replace him for a game and fix so much shit. Not even talking about loot crates. I'm talking about attn to detail and accuracy.

Welp, now with the creators update this game is borked for me. It runs sloppy as shit 80% of the time. No crashes in ~45 mins of racing, but the framerates are a mess. I was only able to keep playing thanks to g-sync (even then I could tell framerates were terrible). Lowering the settings has no impact. Tried turning game mode on/off, no difference. This sucks.

Sigh, now we wait for a new patch and or driver update or all the above.

Menus are 16:9 but racing is all 21:9 and looks good. Unless it has changed, it doesn't actually list the 21:9 resolutions in the options but if you select Native Res it works just fine.

Can confirm. VIP 2x is active and game runs great. Including the customization menu, i.e. memory leak appears fixed. Nice.
Fuck, and I deleted the game off my SSD so it wouldn't take up 100GB of space...

At least maybe now I can actually buy the specialty dealer cars without having to grind so much.

Lol still no patch notes. Guess it's a secret

Yeah no notes (why so secretive?!), I can only anecdotally advise that performance on my PC is fixed (the game basically broke for me after the creator update). And obviously the VIP 2x and memory leak are observed broadly (see Reddit/Forza forums).

Plus a new update out today, lot's of fixes:


November 3, 2017

Today’s update for Forza Motorsport 7 includes the Xbox One X version of Forza 7 and introduces a number of new features for the game. For more on the Xbox One X update, as well as the enabling of features like #Forzathon, Auction House, and more, check out our story here on FM.net.

This update also introduces a massive list of improvements and fixes. Foremost among these is a focus on PC performance and stability improvements, including fixing numerous in-race crash instances, soft locks when viewing replays, memory leaks, as well as addressing general stuttering issues across all areas of the game.

We’ve heard from the community that you want more detail as to what goes into Forza Motorsport 7 updates. The following is a list of additional improvements introduced to the game with this update. In addition to the improvements listed below, this update also includes localization updates as well as minor UI and behind-the-scenes improvements that are not listed here.

General Fixes
The general fixes in today’s update touch many different areas of the game – including improved performance when loading, updated Forza Rewards Tier badges, and much more.

• Improved performance when loading into lobbies in Free Play, Multiplayer, and the Forza Driver’s Cup.
• Players who reach the maximum driver level will have their driver level number replaced by an icon.
• Fixed an issue where players were not receiving the Tier 1 and/or “Thanks For Playing” badges. In addition, players who meet Tier 12 requirements in Forza Rewards will now receive the Tier 12 badge.
• Players can now successfully load tunes through the My Tunes panel from the Pre-Race menu.
• Fixed an issue where scrolling credits menu stuttered.

• Fixed an issue where players would sometimes soft lock when switching profiles while opening a purchased Prize Crate.
• Addressed hitching performance in videos with various hardware setups.

• Fixed an issue where some players would soft lock after buying a car in Specialty Dealer.
• Fixed an issue where some users would soft lock after leveling up their Car Collector tier in the Rewards menu.
• Fixed an issue where rewinding after turning off Friction Assist will keep Friction Assist physics on.
• Using Friction Assist in Rivals events will now result in dirty times on the event leaderboard.

PC
In addition to placing a focus on stability and performance on PC across a wide spectrum of hardware configurations, today’s update features numerous specific improvements, listed below.

• Players can now toggle FPS display when playing on PC.

• Fixed an issue where some players would soft lock when attempting to view Driver Level Milestone Rewards from the Main Menu.

• Fixed an issue where changing advanced graphics options without reloading the race causes substantial popping.

Multiplayer
With new modes lighting up today, including Tag, Drag, Keep the It, and more, we’ve got more ways to enjoy Forza 7 than ever.

I'm prompted to install the windows 10 creators update in order to install the game. I was curious to know if any of you are having any serious issues with windows 10 that would deter any sensible person from updating for the sake of this game.

Only issue is needing to disable fullscreen optimizations on all your games, otherwise nothing serious. I went straight from 1607 to 1709 and it seems to be better.

Guys, I finally got my xbox one controller adapter to use my elite controller on pc.


Is this worth getting on my setup in my rig? Or is it broken since its coming from the MS store?



Also, would progress carry over to say, the Xbox One X version when i install it on that or no?

I think it's worth getting at this stage. The game was pretty hit or miss (with some big misses) until the latest patch. The game generally felt like a beta product until the patch that came on Monday (most folks on the forza forums refer to it as the XOX patch). On my setup the game is buttery smooth with minimal issues. 4k @ ~100-120 fps per in-game counter (depending on weather effects).

Progress should carry over, between platforms from what I understand given that this is a "play anywhere" title.

You can use a usb cord as well, the one that comes with the elite controller is decently long.

Wired 360 controllers are pretty cheap as well. If they had provided multi-player for pc that's the route I was planning to go.

Yup, already had my elite controller from day 1 when it came out. Bought it for my then Xbox One. Easily the best controller on the market but it is $150 or so

It always launches in a window before your settings are loaded. That being said, being a UWP game it always runs in a window. The fullscreen setting is really borderless fullscreen windowed.

The game was acting up on me last night too. I would load into the race and start, but was extremely laggy 30-50fps. I reloaded the game and worked fine. Next race, same crap FPS. Restart... fixed... broken. Shut down PC, reinstall drivers, game runs great... then crashes in the post race menu. I gave up after 45 mins.
