Let the countdown begin!

I personally can't believe there aren't more hype threads for this game around these boards. May 3rd, not far.

Porsche (http://cerberus.gamershell.com/screenshots/4645/155676_full.jpg)
BMW (http://cerberus.gamershell.com/screenshots/4645/155678_full.jpg)

For me, this is the biggest game coming out for any platform till at least June.

I'll be seeing you on there Merry, this is the only game that will pull me away fro Halo 2 and I'll bet 10 dollars to a doughnut that it's a GOTY contender.

I totally agree with you. I don't know much about the whole setup of the game, but my buddy has told me to play Asia, while he plays Europe so that we can trade cars with eachother, and access ones we wouldn't normally be able to. I'm a little confused about that.

Anyway though, I'm getting so excited. teehee

That porsche looks amazing.

Wow. I'm excited. Too bad it comes out right before my AP. O well- right afterward.

I have been waiting for this game for a very long time. I played the living crap out of GT and GT2, and I played GT3 alittle bit. I think Forza is going to be AWSOME!!

I'm in the poor boat though... I might be able to work something out, but even then it would probably be best to use the money for other things right now. AHH WELL :)

Pre-Ordered and Pre-Paid. Not a huge race fan, but this one should be a keeper. I spent a good chunk of time with the demo, basically smashing into things wondering why in gods name any race game would lack vehicle damage......'Cough, ^*(&^(*Cough....GT.... $%@$#%^@....4...,Cough @#^#42!" :D

Check out this video for Forza, talks about customization ... it's about 2 minutes and briefly hits parts and paint ... while talking about paint it mentions there is 600 layers! And the video showing what you can do is awsome

04-29-2005, 12:44 PM
he he he, I just played the demo for like an hour strait in the same race. The only thing that I seen I didnt like is that the bumpers dont fall off. The only things that fall off are the side mirrors and the exhaust. Does anyone know that in the real game did they fix this or add it? Cant wait till the 5fth now!

CrazyCougar
04-29-2005, 08:21 PM
The cars are supposed to be damaged pretty heavily, whether that includes bumpers flying off I have yet to see. BUT, I have seen some beat up cars! Remember, the demo is only like a 60-70% complete build so they still had lots of improvements to make.

A FEW MORE DAYS!

I like it alot. I was playing arcade before and unlocked about 4 cars, then in one of the races down the stretch the damn cpu took me out from behind and I went spinning around 3 times but came in 2nd, so I was in a fit.

I want to start customizing the cars and improving on them, havn't tried any team challenges yet but I'll probably try that any minute, defiently is a good game.

This game rocks! It's got everything I've ever asked for in a racing game! Realistic handling, full customization, damage... And my home town has a track to boot! Pacific Shipyards is Vancouver.

Holt88
05-05-2005, 02:33 PM
That's a **** load of credits, I've done some minor things with mine...nothing huge. Some people are complete idiots online, espically when they see damage is "simulation" and they don't race the way they should and start ramming into eachothers bumpers, you will get your car screwed up as much theirs. You can shed tires, lose fuel...not sure if tires can actually fall off, it would be interesting to race 75 laps on Nurernburg? That track is a good 11 minutes. There's pit stops and how long you want your crew to take, the highest I think it 17 seconds and lowest is 5.

If someone does try to take your back out I just jam on the breaks real hard so they screw up their car as I'm not to worried with the back and their axel is out of wack and they can't control it right.

MerimacHamwich
05-05-2005, 02:37 PM
Yeah, I'll send an invuite to anybody on XBA who wants one.

Thanks Cov. :) I'm in love with my Subaru, I haven't had a chance to race it against any poeple yet, but I'll do some of that today. Hopefully it can compete with some other poeples beasts.

Man I love this game.

Yup. Some people are still trying to go 100 miles an hour around turns and just losing control, this isn't PGR. That ME Four Twelve is the fastest car in the game I said going about 235 on a straight away, the handling sucks, but if you can handle it good in the game, you'll smoke everyone.

FB-Gollum
05-06-2005, 04:50 AM
I just got my Skyline R34. It's been pimped out hard and soon to be coming to an online race near you. How much have you guys been playing with the customizing? I'm just getting started, but there seems to be a ridiculous amount you can do if you're creative. I've got an S14 I think looks pimp, and an Integra that looks like a high school kid did it up.

Seriously, this is the first game I think other than Halo CE, that I don't have a single real complaint about. That's not to say there aren't things that could be better, but nothing comes up shy enough to make feel dissapointed.

Bakeman
05-06-2005, 05:15 AM
Okay guys I joined the car club thanks for the invite.. I love this game.. of course I played online today and was just annoyed by it.. people seem to only pick A1, B1, S1, etc.. you know .. like damn there are other ranks in the class also.

Anyways what I really like and only one host did it was Garage cars.. what would be nice if you can do garage cars with a certain class... Because I only had my lonely C4 mini copper :) and they all had S1 Integra's and crap lol .. It was fun though.

Plus you get to show off the paint job of your car. Though it's hard to notice while racing. They should do a 5 or 10 second fly by of the grid before the race to show off each car.

So anyways I came to my grandma's this weekend, and I went to put my forza save on a mem card.... yeah it doesn't fit! DOH! So I started over, which is okay I got to pick a different starting location and see those cars.

This game is going to own me. I told my step grandpa that I probably won't be playing WoW (world of warcraft) anymore. Partly due to Froza :)

my 69 GTO is so fast


it has too much power though almost 800 horsepower 800 torque, the car hits 240 in 3rd gear, i have to keep the gear ratios like that though cause theres no grip with all the power, im talking like up to 3rd gear burnouts, every other car feels slow compared to my GTO, i hit the gas and pull away from Enzo's i think im gona take it down to like 450-500 horsepower



anyone kno how to make the cars cornering rating better, ive put every upgrade on a Celica and its cornering is a 5.0 i tuned it around but it doesnt change the rating....

Bakeman
05-06-2005, 01:55 PM
I don't know how to change the rating ... adjusting stuff will make it turn "better" or how you like it to turn... but I don't think it changes the rating.

I really really need to learn how to adjust the gears... I put everything into this Integra (I think it was that car) and the thing can go 200mph.... BUT 1st through 3rd only gets up to like 80mph .. then 4th goes up to like 150 and 5th tops at like 202....

I adjusted the FD a bit which actually helped.. but once I start to mess with the individual gears it just gets worse and worse... I can't figure it out :(

MerimacHamwich
05-06-2005, 03:04 PM
Haha, yeah I'm scared to mess with the tuning aspect. I have this itchy feeling I'll screw it all up. But, I might try it out on my Renault Clio V6.

Holt88
05-06-2005, 09:44 PM
I'm pretty sure there's a couple things you can adjust, tire pressure, springs, and a couple other things to help on corners

MerimacHamwich
05-06-2005, 10:40 PM
Yeah. Lowering your car will help, but you gotta make sure to have it high enough so it doesn't bottom. That's the first thing I did to start messing around with tuning. Things are going well now, and I make sure to lower all the cars I plan to race.

I'm so addicted it isn't funny.

I screwed up my Mitshibishi FTO big time. I had upgraded parts to stay in the D class but I did some tire pressure changes, and about 3 other things and the accelration of my car is horrible and the speed should have been going faster.

There's a couple guys I know who have Integra's and Acura RSX's who were going a good 186 compared to my 135.

Haha, that's what I'm scared of. But I seem to be doing ok with the tuning. And if all else fails, you can reset it to default right? But overall I think the tuning is well done. The scrolling help text does wonders for me. I had no idea what anything did, so I took a look at the scrolling text for each of the tuning options. Now I know alot more.

I would tend to agree Matt. The game is just, pure awesome to me. I love the whole buy/sell online lobbies too. It's like going to a car auction, so sweet. I have minor complaints about petty things, but they are just that. Everything else about the game makes me want to cry it's so good.

Bakeman
05-07-2005, 07:06 PM
yes you can just reset to defaults ...

One thing that really sucks about that is... you can't just reset ONE section to defaults. Like if I got my springs and brakes set the way I want.. and messed up on the gears.. if I hit reset to defaults it alllllll changes...

so I guess I gotta start saving it .. that way if that happens I can just go back to the last save.

MerimacHamwich

Interesting. That does suck. Ah well, guess you just gotta write down the stats before you change something.

or save your setup when you get 1 thing the way you like it.. then work on the next.. if you mess it up.. reload your last save..

This game is amazing the amount of customization you can do not only to the engine, chassis but to the body and paint. Heres my Lancia delta with the good 'ol canadian flag stuck on it, I think it turned out pretty good. I would have out the leaf on both sides of the car too but I had already spent over an hour and a half working on just the one. Also this is my bentley got the idea from a paint scheme that was on 300C.

I've got an Enzo Ferrari. Speed is 10.0, acc is 9.0....no S class car has beaten it yet, only things that come close are the Jaguar SS and the P1's, but those are strickly racing.

Hmm, how about the Nissan Skyline R34s? 9.something speed, 10.0 acceleration.

Yeah, I've got a pretty maxxed out R34 V spec. No dice on keeping up with cars that are naturally in the S class. Can't match the top speeds.

However, My 350z was BLOWING PEOPLE AWAY. Now if I could control it I might even finish a race!

Are you using the drive line option that shows you when to brake and when your safe to hit the gas? I was having the same problem, because this game is so realistic. Following the lines for a race or two on new tracks really helps you get a feel for cornering. You can take a turn at decent speeds (i.e. approach it like a mad man, but get your car slowed down to decent turning speeds), but if you don't approach the turn right you're screwed, lol.

Also, remeber if you aren't slowing down enough before a turn, braking really screws up you tire tracking when turning, so try to brake early and as little as possible during turns.

This game, even with the aids can take a bit of getting used to, but is well worth it.


EDIT: don't ignore handling en leu of power.

I love the new comercial with that quotes the reviewer saying Forza is better than GT4. They've got to really hype stuff up and rub those kinds of things in if they expect the average nimrod to see anything past the PS2 name.

Agressive marketing, I like it.


ps its too bad its a crappy mag like EGM, but coming from them it must be better. EGM doesn't usually favor anything Xbox.

I say try it. It's way different than an arcade racer, but it's just too good for any racing fan to pass up.

Cloud Strife

I rented Forza right around release, since I was a bit skeptical about it after playing the demo, and I ended up truly liking it in most everyway. I admit that I was starting to get a little tired of racing games, but Forza sure did get me back into them. I'm looking at getting the game myself, maybe at Circuit City because it's on sale, and probably return to Xbox Live to play it online.

I never tried customizing my car's paint though, but I may try it once I buy it.:)

MerimacHamwich
06-09-2005, 08:08 PM
Paint customization is a little daunting. To really get the designs you want, you have to be quite creative, and really understand the controls of the paint. it definetly adds a new layer to the game.

Bakeman
06-09-2005, 08:28 PM
Yeah the painting can be really hard.... but also interesting.. anyways...

so I thought I'd let ya know I was at Best Buy today and I saw Forza there for $39.99

Also I picked up a Madcatz MC2 racing wheel.. I don't know if it works with the game... but they told me I had 30 days to return it... so I figured I'd give it a shot. I can't really afford $150 for that new one that just came out.

I just went on a two day Forza binge. The damn game is like Lays potato chips, you can't just do one race. I had the hardest time winning that Corvette, ya know the one you win in the Corvette challenge? Anyway, I got it.

My cars are nice and my garage is filling up as well as my money. This is a game that you could play for at least a year and still have fun with it. :cheers:

Yeah thats unfortunate, since Forza is one of the biggest driving genre games to hit the Xbox, let alone be compared to the giant, Gran Turismo. This place just doesnt seem quite the same anymore. I noticed no one takes credit for the news stories posted anymore either...LOL! Probably has to do a lot with some of the quality of the staff on board now I guess. just something I have observed quietly. Definitely some BAD choices...LOL!

I was going to get it last week on sale, but I didn't get paid until after the sale, so I didn't get it. :bang: Hopefully, I get another shot.

I can't wait to see you all online, once I get back on XBL (when I get Forza). :cool: It was gret fun on XBL (but I really hope to have more forum members on my list, since I usually jumped into a game with kids yelling).

I believe at lvl30 you open up the Endurance races.

These races are long races that you must pit because of gas and/or tire wear. I did one and it also took about 35 minutes (I believe my time was 37 minutes). The races are like 30 laps.

Yea, it is really boring at first but then you get kinda used to it, and when I went to pit for the first time this thing came up that told me what to do and went away before I got to read it so I was like oh snap what do I do! but I figured it out and got back to first in like 4 laps :hump: .

I tried to do another endurance race today (the 20 laps of the Tokyo Circuit one) but when I was like on my 5th or 6th lap my xbox made this funny noise then froze and I was like noooooooo. Its not the frist time its done this with any of my games so I didn't think it was that big of a deal but I always check my discs after something like that happpens to see if it does anything to it and there was this scratch on it but I fuigured that it still might work. wrong. My damn xbox messed up my game and it wont work. I click on the car that I want to drive and it just freezes. One of these days I'm gonna throw my xbox out of the window if I can't figure out whats wrong with it. Does anybody have the same problem as me or have any idea on what to do?

I have a question, everyone uses the Honda CRX SiR to beat D class races, but I can't figure out how to make it better than my Lancia Delta. I tried installing different combinations of upgrades, but it still doesn't meet the level of my Lancia, let alone exceed it. Whats the deal?

As well, what are your favorite tunings for unmodified Ferrari 360 Modenas, Shelby Cobras and TVR Tuscans?
