About This Club

Let's play some Forza! Spec challenges, time trials, tunes, wheel setups, and everything else.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Forza 7 Demo

    The old Forza rule was as long as two tires were in-bounds that it was considered a clean lap. I believe that this is the same with Forza 7.
  3. Forza 7 Demo

    Ah yeah I agree. I have no problem with people taking a bit more curb on the apex, entrance or exits. I Just didn't like that people could drive straight through turns like they weren't there which, as we've said, they seem to have stopped.
  4. Forza 7 Demo

    Have to say I have noticed on most of the tracks now their are tire barriers well placed to stop cheating. End of the day look at F1, how many times do you see track limits being ignored. My point is as Long as it isn’t like going straight through a chicane I am happy for the slight corner cut as long as you keep a wheel on track
  5. Forza 7 Demo

    Don't know about wreckers as I don't do it to get penalised but I have noticed that people can't cut corners where there would be an unfair advantage to do so now. Sebring is an example, on the "M bend" before the back straight, they have put big tyre barriers across so it's no longer possible to cut.
  6. Forza 7 Demo

    Yes, they said there'd be a penalty system for wreckers and corner cutters in the hopper lobbies. They didn't go into details but said there was a new system.
  7. Forza 7 Demo

    Penalty system for what? Cutting corners!? Or something else? I Don't pay much attention to pre release interviews on most games so I don't know what was said
  8. Forza 7 Demo

    Such as any sort of penalty system. You know, like they talked about during the interviews. Share your FFB settings and your wheel type when you get something you like.
  9. Forza 7 Demo

    I have played this for a few hours now and I fully share the views above. Graphics are great, there is a wide variety of cars... I also like the dynamic weather, although it's not available on all the tracks. Control wise, the gameplay using a pad seems better than before. Opinion still pending on gameplay using a steering wheel. From the first impression, it seems less accurate/direct than before, and the force feedback seemed a bit off for some reason. However, I need to play with the different settings a bit more to see if this can be adjusted. I don't like mods, loot crates, driver gear, etc... but as I am not really forced to use them, that's ok. It's a shame that this dev time was not used for something more useful though...
  10. Forza 7 Demo

    There was an update put out today for the demo where they fixed some of the wheel issues and some other things. Here are the patch notes and the link to the Forza forum. https://forums.forzamotorsport.net/turn10_postst103571_FM7-Demo-FAQ--Release-Notes-and-Known-Issues--Updated-10-11-17.aspx Release Notes 10/11/2017 Today we released the most recent update for the Forza Motorsport 7 demo. This update addresses numerous issues on both the Xbox One and PC versions of the demo, including: Fixed numerous crashes which contributed to 40% of all crashes hit in the Demo in Retail. Fixed numerous issues with force feedback & peripheral functionality. Fixed an issue where camera motion effects were not properly disabling. Fixed an issue with Porsche handling that was causing drivability issues. Fixed an issue with Arabic text being inverted. Fixed an issue with Benchmark mode not accurately reporting minimum FPS. Enabled Unlocked Framerate & Show FPS as PC features.
  11. There IS A Spoon

    Someone commented that this could be a good way to do the mandatory long races in the campaign. I guess there are people who don't like endurance racing.
  12. There IS A Spoon

    I initially expected a spoon prepared Honda S2000... but somehow this is even better! Hahaha. Go team kitchen utensils!
  13. IMSA + Forza

    It looks like my favorite racing series is buddying-up with Forza. https://www.imsa.com/news/102017/imsa-announces-strategic-alliance-forza-franchise I've always wished Forza had all of the IMSA tracks but it's great that they'll be bringing in some historic vehicles. And of course, the perpetually unlucky #16.

  15. Forza 7 Demo

    It looks like PRC feels about the same. https://pretendracecars.net/2017/09/20/i-didnt-enjoy-the-forza-7-demo/
  16. Forza 7 Demo

    I agree with you completely. Rolling starts were added to 6 with the NASCAR pack. I'm pretty sure we'll get those back in 7 as the work has already been done. I play less multiplayer than career/time trial/rivals as well. This is mainly because multiplayer problems are ignored. In this case, it seems, in favor of "loot crates".
  17. Forza 7 Demo

    I'm not an expert or anything, just a casual gamer that likes Forza games so....... my take on it: The game is obviously very good looking. I Cant wait to have this game running on a One X on my 4K TV. I Have been playing Forza 5 a bit recently and coming from that, this game feels more Sim-like than 5. I Haven't played 6 for ages and cant remember what that was like. I Was using the Beetle...... oh, sorry, I was using the Porsche...... and intentionally kicking its backside out. With previous Forza games, doing that while using the Sim steering would usually result in you fish-tailing all over the place and, 9 times out of 10, you would end up spinning out but this game allows you to control the slide better and get it back under control which is nice for an exclusive pad player like myself. I Didn't really have enough time on it to get a feel for the AI but will play it again later to see what they are like. I Didn't like the HUD and I didn't like the camera shake effect's. I Turned them off straight away but it didn't fully remove it like I was hoping. For me, that's something I could probably get used to after a while of playing anyway although I would rather that I had the option to remove it completely. I Don't care about the character customisation. I Don't care about Mod cards being in the game providing I can just avoid using them like in F6. I Don't care about having extra assists for those that require them. I'm not someone who tends to bother with multiplayer races much so not fussed about any of that. One thing I would like the option to change though is having standing starts as opposed to rolling starts.
  18. Forza 7 Demo

    Well, I've given the DEMO a try and I feel disappointed. Good: It's beautiful. Puddles, sun, clouds, cars, and everything else looks amazing. Seeing this in 4K HDR later on will be a treat. I think it makes Project CARS 2 look outdated already. It sounds great. The dynamic sound is nice (if you like music while you play) and the cars sound like I think they should. More fine-tuning in the control department for wheel users like me. Tons of cars. Though you'll probably find a dozen or two "go-to" cars, this makes spec challenges all the more interesting because nobody will be an expert in all cars on all tracks. Mugello is back. Bad: The HUD shakes mercilessly. Fortunately it shakes less in the cockpit view but still enough to be frustrating. The wheel feels different but not in a good way. They worked on it. Forza 5 and 6 felt the same. 7 is different. I played with it but couldn't figure out how to make it feel good (to me). Some assists have been added to aid absolute beginners but I feel like they will be abused. The friction assist will invalidate times on leaderboards but will it be allowed in multiplayer? Ugly: Drivers have costumes. This is a focus that I think you can skip over in the main game but seems like a waste of development effort. Mods are back (not in the demo). Turning "off" the motion effects does not turn them off, only lessens them. I hope this gets addressed. No rules or flags in the demo. They're probably not in the full game again. Chase cam isn't considered an assist. Am I off? What does everyone else think?

Good show, Turn 10. There are a few funny commercials they made for the release.

  24. It looks like Forza 7 will be getting the specially spec'd cars that Horizon 3 has. The Forza edition cars will get the same or similar perks as the Horizon special cars did in 3. In addition to being tuned nicely (or given artificial stat upgrades), you'll be able to bank more money or experience by using them. https://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/FM7_Forza_Garage_Week_6 @kamikazebot91 and I are both torn a bit on this. On the one hand we're giving perks to the people who can get the cars. Credits and experience - who cares but greater power to weight ratio feels unfair. On the other hand, we've all seen crazy builds on top of the leaderboards in 6 which doesn't have any special edition cars, just Dr. Frankenstein-esque tuners. All in all, if a really difficult to obtain car shoots up the leaderboards, then there might be a problem. If they keep the special cars out of the public lobbies and leaderboards, I see no harm. Gimmick, yea, but who cares. The Alfa 33 Stradale never got rebalanced and that thing rules the A-class boards.
