    It really is. I know it's free stuff, but it's a game mechanic that's designed as a way to get you more stuff, but when the majority of that stuff is rubbish and useless, it has no place. I don't care what my "drivatar" looks like, but I do care about getting new cars. I had five wheelspins and two super wheelspins saved up and I didn't get a single car from any of them. That pretty crap tbh.

    Yikes, I thought getting one car from seven normal spins and 2 super ones was bad!

    It is a bit pap though, you should be able to trade/sell the junk you don't want, but meh.

    I've got serious Super Spin rage right now, I saved up for what felt like forever to get the house that gives you double Forzathon points (5million), and it comes with 5 super spins.

    Out of those 5 spins I got nothing, literally nothing worth having. :/

    I went through about 15 super spins during the ~15 hours I put in, I got some decent money twice and then a FE car once. Everything else was useless cosmetics or horns.

    Already moved on, game looks mint but just didn't grab me like FH3, probably because I put in so many hours and this is just the same game with a different location.

    Just beat the Flying Scotsman - got a legendary spin or something, which earned me..... a pair of shoes! Seriously?

    Hating these spins so much, my last 6 have all been either clothing, or dance moves! I thought this was a driving game, not some sodding dance party thing.

    Yep, but also tried by pulling power cable out for 60 seconds

    Looking at the net seems Forza 7 and this one have real issues

    Do this if you are using instant on it uses some kind of hibernation mode, the hold the power button in resets this.

    The reason why its crashing is most likely an update that has failed.

    have to say enjoying it so far, but when do you get to play with real people?


    managed to build some stupid cars though, nigh on 600 bhp rwd mk2 escort and a 1300bhp Landrover defender being the highlights.

    Car list I use with prices, handy when buying from the auction as people tend to rip you off.

    Just make a copy to your own gdrive so you can edit how you want.

    Struggling to decide between 60fps @ 1080p and 30fps @ 4K. The 4K is beautiful, but the 60fps is so buttery smooth!

    If only there was a way to easily switch between the two rather than having to reset the game.

    I've done identical races in the same car between the 2 modes and my times are always better at 60fps.

    4K is nice if you're just messing around but it's not responsive enough to race properly imo.
