very cool mashup comparison!

they could've synced it a little better sothe comparison was better but it's close enough. What I like is there are more moving foreground objects with more detail. In FM4, I always notice that all the rocks and mountains and everything was far away and semi-static. But here, you can be driving by big boulders. Lots more big trees. And the lighting improvements are phenomenal!
post #214 of 724
I have a question fellow Forza fans, do you use a controller or a wheel/pedal set? I use a Fanatec rig and I can't believe they aren't compatible with Forza 5. At least not yet. And the wheels announced so far are inferior to what I already have so I'm not interested in them. To me all the time Turn10 puts into car physics, tire wear, tire type etc. is a waste if you use a controller. IMO
post #215 of 724
I read the rumble triggers are used to great effect on the new One controllers with FM5. That'll be one advantage for the controller.

And didn't Fanatec say that something's coming up but they can't say yet? I remember reading that in a Fanatec post somewhere (maybe it was posted in an earlier post here since I don't go to many places for Forza posts).
post #216 of 724
Fanatec said they are willing to work with MS to get compatible. But at this point MS and Fanatec haven't worked anything out. I follow it very closely as I'm effected greatly. I think it will happen the question is "when". But I could be completely wrong also. It's up to MS.

What happened to the shadows? Are they glitched in that video because nothing is being cast on that car.

They didn't activate "the cloud" yet.

Edit: just a bad joke, I didn't even notice the shadow issue.

Older videos from E3, Gamescom and Pax all had dynamic shadows on the cars for most objects. This video, all the shadows are just textures on the environment, it is a major difference from the old footage.

Given this is the first official Direct Feed footage, it does raise a red flag. Hopefully this was a glitch or an unfinished track.
post #220 of 724
I love the Forza franchise but for a game coming out in roughly 2 months there are still ALOT of questions to be answered. But so far I like what I see.
post #221 of 724
If they're going to show off the graphics, I wish they'd turn off the suggested race line.

What are the flaps that spring open on the car at least once in that video under braking?

Pagani uses a sophisticated braking and drag reducing solution. They operate independently to maximize downforce and reduce drag. It's a pretty clever solution to be honest.

I'm sure we'll get an explanation. I wouldn't assume negatively right off the bat.
post #223 of 724
I went to the Gamestop Expo in Vegas here a few weeks ago and got to play forza a couple times. The rumble triggers really add that extra feedback! I could tell when tires were slipping (each tire) hitting rumble strips, ABS all that...The contriller felt smaller but more form fitting. The analong sticks felt different. A little taller and smaller in diameter made them feel more sensitive. It will take time to get used too but an improvment across the board IMO.

Gameplay wise, Forza 5 felt more like an evolution than a giant leap to next gen. The cockpit was phenomenally detailed and control was fluid and slightly more "real" feeling (mabye due to higher FPS) Having just learned that they will be doing head tracking sealed the deal for me. I cant wait now!
post #224 of 724
not impressed so far. Jaggies on a brand new console? should never be.

post #226 of 724
About the only part of the car roster that did anything for me was the open wheel cars. Especially the few older F1 vehicles that they're modeling.

Here's the currently known track list.

Bathurst
Bernese Alps
Indianapolis
Laguna Seca
Prague
Silverstone
Spa
TopGear Test Track

I love open wheel racing! It's a travesty that NASCAR dominates with those lumbering mad max vehicles...

Lumbering? They're by no means slow. They're engineered for tight clustered racing, more so than F1. That they aren't as nimble as an F1 car is irrelevant.
post #229 of 724
Compared to a high downforce open wheel racecar with similar HP, they're certainly lumbering. They have a fraction of the downforce and weigh thousands of pounds more. An open wheel counterpart even with far less horsepower like a modern IndyCar that also races on ovals has a far higher rate of speed, far faster acceleration, can corner dozens of MPH faster in the same turn, and can brake in a fraction of the space.

So comparatively speaking, it is. But it should be noted that open wheel racing dominates on the world stage. It's only in America where stock car racing is at the top in popularity and that has only been for a bit over the past 15 years. IndyCar dominated prior with attendance, ratings, and capital until it hit the self destruct button in the mid 1990's and entered its version of the Civil War which tore the heart out of the sport and drove most of the fans away.

post #231 of 724
I hope they include some modern American made street cars that normal people are likely to own. Always seems like the only vehicles in that category these games get are Asian imports like Civics.

I want to be able to race the same Chevy Impala I drive on the street.
post #232 of 724
I grew up in the import era so I don't have any affinity toward American cars (we had an 89 Dodge Caravan because every family needed a minivan to haul their kids back then and my parents had an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme as their first American car). Well, I do love the Viper. And the Euro-designed Ford Focus.

One of my best friends is part of a Corvette family. They have an 80s Vette, a 90s Vette, and a 00s Vette. His dad still takes road trips with his Corvette club. I tried out a couple of those cars, and yes, they were nice. But I do agree with many people's assessment that old guys drive the Vette. It is a lot of bang for the buck though. Of course, I couldn't really push the cars because they were all his dad's (though I did get to floor it from start but no heavy cornering allowed).

I actually had more fun with their old MR2 Turbo. I think it was a 96 or 97 (forgot, just remember it was the second gen MR2). They had 2 MR2s. One was turbo and the other was normally aspirated. That was like driving a go cart. And since his mom handed down the MR2 to him, he let me push it and it was heck of a lot of fun.

that said, I'm sure they're going to have lots of cars from all eras and makes. Forza has always been pretty good about that. well, except for Porsche... tongue.gif

post #233 of 724
I'm in the process of trying to get my hands on a reasonably priced 2nd Gen MR2! Gotta love an affordable, mid-engine car. I wonder if they'll have an MR2 in Forza, or if they figure there's enough exotic hardware to scratch the mid-engine itch.

Regarding the one you drove, if you were in the US at the time, then it must have been somewhere between a 1991 and a 1995 model (Toyota stopped exporting them to US after the 1995 model year).
post #234 of 724
I'd get one if I knew how to fix them. But since I don't, being such an old car, it's not worth the headache and hassle. Plus, I'd have to be able to find someone who didn't abuse the heck out of the car and what are the chances of that?

The cool thing I read is some people did an engine swap? I don't know much about it as I just skimmed headlines, but that sounds awesome.

Started thinking back harder and you're right on the dates. Must have been 95 or so, at least for one of them. They had the red one and the blue one. The blue one was turbo.
post #235 of 724
considering that the McLaren P1 is the halo car for FM5 and considering the heavy Top Gear involvement again, I thought this was appropriate...
Jalopnik was teasing them that they did a poor job of drifting... all in good fun.

Here's a short video about a couple of the racing wheels.

Does anyone know if there will be a real, legit drag racing option this time? If not, why?

Well that sucks. No Fanatec compatibility. I'm canceling my Xbox One order and my Forza order.
