Long story short, I reinstalled FM6 to clean up on some of the forza points, and when I went to claim all the gifted credits from claiming them almost every week, only one message was there from 8/16/18. I was able to claim that.
This wasnt a problem in FH2, where the “gifts” message folder had over 50 messages from each time I had claimed the gifted credits in forza hub, but not the game. FH2 I also had not played in over 3 years and just reinstalled, those messages were fine.
Why are all the gifted credits messages gone from FM6? Can I still redeem them somehow?
FH2 messages stay ‘forever’.
FM6 messages get deleted after some time.
‘Once I have redeemed my Rewards, how long do I have to claim them?’
In Forza Motorsport 4, Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon you have two weeks to read gift messages to get your reward. In Forza Motorsport 5, Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 2 and Forza Horizon 3, gift messages remain in your Message Center until you have read them.’
The stated ‘two weeks’ were adjusted to 4 weeks at a later date.
