    Xbox one x, you on a potatoe or something?

    This is performance mode at 60fps

    And you didn't even attempt the benchmark tool or to change settings?

    The game's really well optimized, the only thing that might keep you from getting 144hz i suspect might be your cpu.

    The benchmark tool shows i can get between 120 and 190 fps with my ryzen 2600 cpu but the gfx card is bottlenecking it as i only have a 1060 3gb (lolvram). So i run on a custom high setting at 60 to 90 fps depending on area. There is zero reason why you should be having performance issues.

    Scroll down for screenshots on my shitty 1060 at 1080p.

    1. it's 1440p and I'm limited by the graphics card apparently as per what the game says; 1080p should not really be a problem and I think I'll just play it in 1080p eventually;
    2. of fucking course I ran the benchmark too, you think I'm 12 or smth
    3. corollary to 2, issue is that no matter how I play with the settings it's still shit FPS (40-50, managed 55 or smth at one point); the usual suspects (shadows, AA) do literally nothing when I repeat the benchmark (difference of 1-2 FPS between max AA and no AA, max shadows and no shadows);
    4. I still suspect there's a GPU thing here that throttles it or at least doesn't allow it to reach maximum turbo speeds.

    Watching video now, thanks!

    So if I want a Racing game to cruise around in having fun (with a controller on a TV) is forza 'Horizon' 4 the answer?

    I think the game haz issues with some settings. It runs exactly the same with MSAA 8X as it does with off. Anyway turned down others and achieved 60fps and it looks stunning.

    Also probably triple monitors fks it up a bit as well as not the latest drivers. Will investigate further. When are you nerds playing usually?

    Most nights, best thing to do is complete all the introductory part and get in the main game takes an hour or two, other wise it pull us back and we don't have access to all the races and route creator/custom races

    Drivers might be it, definitely update those as the dx12 windows store games seem to be allergic to old stuff, cause there is no way in hell you should be having performance issues with your setup as i said, idk what's going on.

    People can run it 4k nearly maxed at 60 on a 1070 afaik lol.

    Might be a throttling thing as you say, did you try setting the gfx power settings to always prefer high performance and shit like that?

    Ye, can access the whole thing on a msoft game pass trial, or by paying monthly or whatever.

    After a few hours (holy shit) of racing and what not I can say the following:
    - is gud;
    - you're retarded, there are microtransactions (wheelspins included, maphax if you can't google where barn finds are, etc)
    - something's dumb with the game, my OS, drivers or smth, can't be arsed to actually sort it out more than it is, it runs acceptably well in 1440p with near max settings, for the moment it's going to be enough;
    - holy fuck I spent 5 hours in this thing;
    - got the Escort RS, me likey; attempted to Aston Martin the mountain, failed, got the Escort RS Cosworth and almost flew over the damn barn;
    - is gud;
    - ping me on Discord when you're faffing about so we can have fun (read you push me into the side barriers, me flipping);
    - which reminds me I bit the kool aid "you're winning too much" and upped the AI skill levels, which turned them from responsible racers into psychopathic kamikazes with the sole intent of rekking me. Can't say I'm surprised, downgraded the drivatars (wtf is dat name) to above retarded and went with it, much more enjoyable;
    - if I had the patience to mount my steering wheel, pedals and shifter and shit I'd like Assetto Corsa a lot more but this is retarded fun with a gamepad which is fine;
    - runs on TV via Steam Link through some fukkery with start Steam link, establish link, exit big screen mode, minimize Steam, start Forza, play; obviously controller that is connected to Steam Link doesn't work for some obscure reason I've yet to understand, but if you connect the controller to the computer directly it will work;
    - my TV has horrifying input lag when I don't use the controller connected to the Steam Link so it's nigh unplayable tbh;
    - errr... idk, Microsoft is pushing the line with the DRM that's annoying AF, you can't select the folder to install to, only the drive (!), then it goes on to create its retarded folders there that I can't access to see what's in them (?game saves, ?ini files, ?fuck you);
    - I still don't know if I'll keep the game/Microshit pass, I have enough stuff on Steam to play through that I haven't finished (hell, Grid I think I played tens of seasons and I've always misplaced my saves lel);
    - back to this game, it's annoying af with upgrades it upgrades the class of the car, so even though the RS Turbo for example is class C or smth it can go up to S1 or even S2 I think when fully tweaked, which is a bit retarded and reminds me a bit of Shift Unleashed (another game I should finish, really), where my Cossie was shitting on Skylines/GT-Rs - but a lot of fun nonetheless;
    - it's almost playable with mouse and keyboard and I did it for a bit looking for that fukken barn with the RS in it, because the internet said shit can be camouflaged in woods and what not so I went full autistic screen gazing mode (hold Rclick to look around);
    - there's lotsa people online or smth but they turn transparent and phaseable when you're on a collision course so that's a bit awful but I suppose it's to prevent griefing;
    - I need to catch some sleep;
    - is gud.

    Have you tried photo mode yet, there's shit in there (tweaks etc) that would keep you busy for hours on one picture

    You can't buy wheelspins with real money. At all. I know you think if you keep repeating it it will be true but it's not. Fuck's sake.

    Only bit I suppose you are correct with is the barn find map being buyable, but i think everyone forgot about its existence because it's so useless.

    And in case you didn't realize people upgrade their cars irl to dumb fucking levels too. Ever seen a time attack car?

    Yeah. But the thing is unless you do massive conversions where you literally strip everything out of the car and replace it (ie adding AWD, swapping engine, stripping the weight out entirely, which sadly not visually represented) the cars are very different from one another. Hell, even if you do change everything there are noticeable differences unless you go to the top of s2 hypercars level but then that also makes sense. In the end though you dont have to do it at all, so if you enjoy slower cars go for it.

    Mine are mostly stuck around A800 because i find it the most fun. :shrug:

    And the game doesnt work with a controller through steam link because it's not a steam game, thought that would be obvious. Steam only allows you to set up controller use for games on it that support it, not outside.

    Yes, did fiddle with photo thingie which was nice but it'd have been even better to include actual camera settings instead of 0-100 sliders, but it's really really nice to fiddle and get beauty shots of lovely cars. Would love a setting for the screenshots exclusively, like "take screenshots in 5k instead of your normal resolution and all settings maxed" like you have in Elite, Overwatch and what not, but this is still pretty af.

    My FiFA something works well with controllers via link, idk about that. Same with other games that you can add to Steam and start them through Steam. It's not about the Steam Controller itself, it's about the massive input lag that becomes very noticeable (for unknown reasons, it should not be there if the controller is connected directly to the streaming PC, wtf Valve). Yes, you're right, wheelspins are not buyable with IRL cash, idk what I found there, the menu is confusing to the extreme tbh and might have clicked something else that triggered the M$ store.

    I've noticed A800 to be annoying af, at least the street races, tricked my Focus RS for max powa (obviously) but other enhancements would have thrown it over A800 so I skipped brakes. Street races? Yeah, more like back alley races, ended up just 4wd drifting through them for an embarassing 4th place. I know I should balance the upgrades so that it brakes well as well as powering away well but #powah.

    is that a... Volvo 240/242 ?

    why the fuck is there a 240/242 in this game ? is did somebody stage a break-in at my place or something ? it's got all the good RS/Cossies, just the right selection of WRX's all i really seem to see as missing is the Mitsubishi Lancers.

    Honestly in this aspect is a gud toss out between FH4 and Project Cars 2. They also have lotsa similar cars, less freeroam tho (read none at all in PCars 2).

    i love homologation cars, fuck dedicated supercars, any enginerd can build something like that with enough money and time, the true artistry lies in taking a road car and making it into a monster.

    things like the Sierra RS Cosworth and it's legendary YB Cosworth 2.0 DOHC engine or the Escort RS Cosworth's YBT and Garret T3/T04B turbo, that thing goes from 225 BHP to 450 BHP before you actually have to look into doing major work on the engine or Turbo, there are cossies rolling with more than 1000 BHP out there and the car drives like a dream for how old it is.

    i might be a wee bit biased, the first "high performance" car i ever drove was a stock Escort RS Cosworth, and it's glorious.


    it's the fucking 242 Turbo evo ?!?

    christ what bunch of car-nerds, going to save up.

    no doubt they're eventually going to add the 360GLT, that would be amazing and funny. (TLDR : it's a RWD turbocharged Volvo, with a gearbox over the rear axle, giving it excellent weight distribution for drifting)
