Hi folks,

A quick update on today's CU. This content update addresses two issues: the "free car glitch" that has been well documented here as well as an issue on Lime Rock where players could cut a certain portion of the track to gain an unfair advantage without it "dirtying" their lap. To coincide with the Lime Rock fix, we will be wiping all leaderboard times on Lime Rock South Chicane and Lime Rock Full Alt circuits.

Thanks,
Brian

Any chance you could do a similar fix for Indianapolis? The GP track has no fewer than 4 corners that you just have to cut if you want to make the top of the leaderboard.

When are you guys gonna fix the codes for the wheel users? Everyone can agree that you have rendered our wheels useless bcus the FFB is broken and that limits us to only 270 degrees of rotation.. I want to use the full 900 degrees but it's impossible to race in because the FFB is irresponsible. Please fix.

May not be the right place to post this, but the Bentley Speed 8 in the rain thing still isn't even fixed.

Don't wipe ALL times please as there are a lot of legit times on those tracks.

There's no way for them to tell which times are legit.

Thank you! Keep the updates coming.

(also, my TX is plenty usable. Certainly not perfect but I'm able to race with it, advance through career, and be competitive with my controller wielding friends.)

+1 This gives me hope that we won't be waiting for CUs each month with the new DLC but instead could possibly get them whenever.

very good news, especially appreciate the hot fixes coming as they are made and not waiting for next month DLC.


ps
I was able to cut through two sets of tire walls in indianapolis and still have a clean lap :)
also I could cut in many other corners. check C class leaderboard for direct examples of corners need tightening up :)

keep up the great work forza team

I smashed M.Rossi so hard into a wall on the Nurburgring endurance race just to pass him, he flipped upside down. He was 500-1000 feet ahead of me and we were 3k ahead of everyone else on the expert difficulty. I usually play on Pro or Unbeatable but the showcase events are ridiculous. Got to lap 5of8 and the update kicked in and kicked me out. So mad, but at least I know my plan of attack next go around. Hopefully they balance the AI drivatars soon.

It is REALLY nice that you posted this info for us! I have been asking for better communication from Turn 10 for a bit now and it is Great to see the posts. Now to those who feel the need to post there " when are you going to fix this " issues, there is a thread for this and that us where it should be posted. The last thing I want to see is Turn 10 stop the communication they are giving us, so please post in the proper thread. I am not saying there are not issues to ask about but they belong in the proper thread please

I am not sure if this exploit is related to this patch, but apparently you can use the normally banned 70s F1 cars/Ariel Atom in the R-Class hoppers if you get into those cars offline before getting into a lobby.

Appreciate the update, but the Lime Rock "fix" was a bit of a missed opportunity. That corner always seems to get a big pileup into the tires and just like in real life races, you could use the little emergency exit to get around the crash. Would have liked to have seen some tire walls on the exit like they have in the Le Mans chicanes - slows you down, but gives you an exit if you need it.

This update also added a post-race dialog box to the end of league races telling you how many league points you received for the last race which wasn't mentioned, but was a nice touch.

The number of Forza 6 players (700k+) who frequent these quaint forum web pages probably pales in comparison to FB/Twitter/NeoGaf/etc., so how about convincing the T10 spin doctors that the forums are where the vocal and rather less casual fanbase hangs out, so maybe it's okay to be more forthcoming here about issues and resolutions - as VoodooUmo has - and reclaim a reputatution with this community at least of interaction?

That was added in last weeks update. I had it in the C class ghost league.

Unfortunately, my TX wheel is still losing its tight FFB feel and VIBRATION after a few races, so I either go to Controller/Wheel section and hit A to somehow reset back to good FFB and VIB or unplug the wheel and quickly reconfigure in the multiplayer lobby in between races to get it working fine again.

I know the Oct. patch did resolve the controller and wheel conflict/reassigning button function, but the problem mentioned above is still there - mentioned in other posts. I don't understand why going to the Controller wheel section and pressing A fixes it, but it does. This needs to be fixed because my friend has the same issue he has a newer TX wheel he bought recently, while my TX was bought when FM5, so its not the wheel at issue, but certainly a software bug (memory overflow corruption?).

If they're legit and the racers are capable of setting those times legitimately then they should have no problem doing it again, right? Sadly, when a few start to take advantage of the system and many follow, everyone gets punished on the leaderboards, it sucks.

Thanks Brian! Love the communication -it's not a lot, but it's a start. It's this kind of thing that made you so awesome all the time - can't wait to jump on and take the update.

@PPiDrive - HLR have been having an HLC around Alt so there's going to be some grumpies back on the farm. Nothing too serious though I'm sure. ;)

Oh I forgot to mention that I mainly do drifting. FFB is crucial for wheel drifters. If you're just a regular racer then I guess your wheel would work just fine. Especially if you're running 270 degrees. It is a fact that FFB is broken at 900 degrees. If you guys don't believe, the. Try it yourself. Very frustrating. Would rather play assetto corsa to drift. Now I just play forza for career mode and league multiplayer.

That is unfortunate. I feel their pain.

I haven't yet put in much time on rivals as I'm enjoying Solo and the occasional league race.
