    I downloaded the demo when I woke up this morning but since I had to get to work I didn't really get to play more than 5 minutes of driving the viper down the road to the event and then turned it off. I felt sick as hell this morning but figured since there are other Forza folks in the office, they would say I stayed home to play the game. :rofl: Now I'm in the office achy as hell and wishing I had stayed home sick today. :( Hopefully I can get in a little more time with it when I get home before I pass out. :lol:

    There are 1 or 2 things that I hope are fixed for the final game. Controller vibration... there is almost none until you crash or pull a big drift, that is NOT okay lol. Controller layout options... not for me, as all I do is switch the handbrake/clutch. But a lot of other are complaining.

    The physics are clearly the same as FM4's, even if the feel is smoother and more controllable. Graphics are great, especially for 30fps. Night looks great, headlights look great.

    There will be. The FM4 demo was different from the actual game.

    I'm shocked you didn't get a green disc, Joose! :eek: Patiently waiting for the 23rd, think I need to set up my cockpit with the Fanatec wheel, shifter and pedals again so I can play Horizon the way it is meant to be played! :D I logged a ton of time on TDU2 for PC with my Logitech set but the Fanatec stuff was always getting thrown off every time MS would push out a patch. :wallbash: Some of the guys who are using the beta of the next XBL dashboard leaked that the latest version fixes the Fanatec issues, so pissed I missed out on the chance to test that too, my wheel has been collecting dust next to my desk! :lol:

    Dude, I have nooooo idea how people get green discs, I'm so jealous of it! I mean, I know there are people over level 300 on FM4, but I thought 269 would get SOMETHING lol.

    It's what the people with the game already got. I'm sure it could change, but yes that is what people have received.

    Does it matter if it's F3 or F4 or just either?


    Sucks that I (and most people) will be 50 in both and still get the same as someone who's only done one. :lol:

    Yeah, it's kinda lame. I was hoping to be rewarded for my level 270 (by the time Horizon is out) in FM4.

    Y'all heard about the secret way to turn off Stability Management? Since there's no option for it, it seems each difficulty setting has a percentage of it. So, you go all the way to the Expert controller setting and then turn on whatever you do want. That's the only way to turn STM totally off.

    The physics feel almost exactly like FM4's when you do that, it's great.

    Also...

    Forza Motorsport - Community

    Aventador J, 599XX Evoluzione, Boss 302, '57 Bel Air, Alfa 8C Spyder, Gumpert Apollo "Enraged"??? What a great first pack!!

    And rally, complete with co-driving?? Yes! They have people who worked on the Dirt games, so... that, plus Forza physics should = total win.

    Excuse my ignorance, but I played the demo myself, and noticed that the engine felt a lot more different than forza 4. I always turn assists off and simulation everything, and I felt like it was too easy. Except for the game AI. It was very difficult to pass anyone on the first race. In forza 4 I would lose control if I take a turn and accelerate too hard, with horizons I find it hard to spin out of control at all :lol:
    still very excited for this game to be released. Love how you actually have to drive to your races, sign up, and explore.

    In the Difficulty settings, go all the way to "Expert" and then turn on anything you want. If you don't do that, stability control stays on. Damn "secret assist" lol.

    Also, I've been drifting and spinning out in the Mustang and Viper plenty. Not the Evo though, of course.. with it's super grippy AWD and whatnot.

    I smashed the races from the demo last night, I am digging the feel so far, it really does feel like a less-shitty-more realistic need for speed game, super pretty on the graphics side too.

    Agreed, nice to see a racing/car game where the scenery isn't a 2D afterthought.

    Yeah I'm actually quite a bit happier about the DLC knowing about the Rally Pack, however that being said I'm still thinking of holding out until Christmas and praying they do the discount DLC deal again! ;) I paid full price for the Season Pass last year not realizing I could have waited two months and gotten it for 50% off. Watch, with my luck they won't discount it this year! :rofl: That being said, despite the lower car count per-pack this time around, the rally portion sounds badass! :metal:
