In Support of the Black Community
Thursday, June 18, 2020



"As we continue to listen, learn, and support the fight for justice in the U.S., we will be postponing our regularly scheduled programming."

Quote:
June 19th marks a day of celebration for the Black and African American community in the U.S. Turn 10 stands with the Black community in solidarity during an unprecedented time of awareness and engagement in the fight against systemic racism and injustice.

Profits from global digital and U.S. retail sales on all Microsoft storefronts made on Friday, June 19th include Forza Horizon 4 and all add on content, Forza Motorsport 7 and all add-on content, and Forza Street add-on content, beginning at 12:00 AM PT and concluding at 11:59 PM PT.

Turn 10 has chosen to partner with the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund in this effort, because of their commitment to structural change as a means to “expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans.” (via NAACP LDF)

Join us in our drive for justice for the Black and African American community. Every purchase made in Forza on June 19th will make a difference. Learn more about the fight for racial justice at naacpldf.org .

Let’s go!

SERIES 24 UPDATE
Jacob Norwood

https://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/fh4_series_24

Quote:
Welcome to Series 24! Some pretty spectacular new reward cars are coming this month, plus an exciting new feature! Get all the details right here.

Below you’ll find this month’s Torben Tuesday clues and their meanings. How many of these did you guess correctly?

1. Zenvo TSR-S 2019 - Can you wing it in Zealand? No not that one.
(Zenvo's HQ is in the Danish island of Zealand)

2. Ford #5 Escort Mk2 1977 - Groups of 5 must be escorted when listening to Talking Heads
(Talking head's debut album was "77" and released in 1977 for the car's year)

3. Ford GT70 1970 - Only 6 of Ercole's best?!
(Ercole Spada was the designer of this car and only 6 were made)

4. Mazda RX7 1985 - 53S2701923809342
(Mazda’s Hiroshima HQ is located at these UTM coordinates)


(car descriptions in article)

Quote:

FH4 Release Notes: June 30th, 2020
https://support.forzamotorsport.net/hc/en-us/articles/360051134633-FH4-Release-Notes-June-30th-2020

Quote:
Version Number:
Xbox: 1.424.99.0
PC: 1.424.99.2

Showcase Remix – Motocross Purposes
The age-old question: Dirtbike, or Buggy? Okay, maybe that’s not quite an age-old question, but it’s still a fun one to answer. Show those two-wheelers how to do things the Horizon way in this returning Showcase Remix. Just make sure your Ariel Nomad makes it back in one piece!

Showcase Remix – Contest of Giants
Go toe-to-toe with Horizon’s hovercraft pilot once more! In this new Showcase Remix, you’ll be driving the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 during a spring downpour. Come hill or high water, prove once again that traction is king!

CROSS-PLATFORM FIXES
Fixed an issue with the Monthly Rivals event for series 23 not counting towards Festival Playlist progression

XBOX FIXES
Added in additional checks to reduce the likelihood of accidentally creating a new save game after cancelling a sync from connected storage.

Xbox Game Pass in your hands

Today, we also announced Xbox is partnering with Samsung to make gaming more accessible to players around the world, via the cloud. With cloud gaming (beta) as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Microsoft’s gaming subscription service, members can play Xbox games on their Xbox console, PC and Android devices using an Xbox controller. Mobile players can play over 100 high-quality Xbox games directly on their Galaxy phone or tablet.

Beginning Sept. 15, you’ll be able to experience the best of Xbox Game Pass by downloading the app from the Samsung Galaxy Store, giving you the freedom to access expansion packs, downloadable content and more. Whether it’s racing through the beautiful English countryside in Forza Horizon 4 on a new Galaxy Note20 during a lunch break, or fighting alongside your pet llama in Minecraft Dungeons on a Tab S7 at home once the workday ends, Galaxy devices provide the best way to pick up and play games directly from the cloud.

A New Microsoft Store Experience is Coming to Xbox Insiders
by Cody Bird, Principal Program Manager, Xbox
Aug 3, 2020 @ 8:00am
https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/08/03/new-microsoft-store-coming-to-xbox-insiders/

Summary
Introducing the new Microsoft Store on Xbox
A completely rebuilt experience designed to be faster, safer and easier to use than ever before
Available in beta beginning August 5 for some Xbox Insiders

Quote:
The Microsoft Store on Xbox makes it easier than ever to discover what you’re looking for, whether you want to try out a gaming membership like Xbox Game Pass, find a specific title or DLC, or access an app, movie or TV show. View trailers inline while you search and browse (or turn on autoplay for the most seamless experience), easily see which games your friends are playing, and get information about discounts and offers at a glance.







Quote:
You’ll see content ratings more clearly surfaced: All trailers start with a consistent ratings pre-roll, ratings information is always clearly shown at the top of game details pages, and persisting age ratings information shows up all the way through the purchase process.

How to participate

We’ll be rolling this update out gradually, so if you’re an Xbox Insider, you may begin to see the new Microsoft Store on Xbox starting as early as August 5; the experience will be available for more Insiders over time before it rolls out to all users this fall. If you encounter any issues, please submit feedback via Report a problem (hold down the Xbox button on your controller and select Report a problem from the power menu). Please submit feedback under Category > Apps and Subcategory > Microsoft Store. If you are not yet an Xbox Insider you can find more about and join the program at Insider.xbox.com.

We’re looking forward to your feedback. The new Microsoft Store on Xbox is just the first of many updates we’re rolling out in the coming weeks, all built to keep the gamer at the center of the entire gaming experience – stay tuned for more.

Community Update on Enforcement Policies
Mike Brown
Monday, August 17, 2020
https://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/forza_enforcement_statement

Quote:
In light of the recent concerns about banning that have been voiced by members of the Forza Horizon community, we’d like to take this opportunity to share our perspective. We take feedback seriously and encourage respectful conversations; we view ‘community’ as a two-way street and in listening to some of your frustrations, we feel it’s worth clarifying our stance on the matters at hand.

All UGC, including (but not limited to) livery designs, are subject to the Forza Enforcement guidelines, which can be viewed here:
https://support.forzamotorsport.net/hc/en-us/articles/360035563914-Forza-Enforcement-Guidelines

While it’s not possible to explicitly describe every possible violation, the list here provides clear guidance and specific examples that align with the game’s E for Everyone rating. Violations of these rules are reviewed & actioned appropriately by members of our Support team.

Per the Xbox Community Code of Conduct and our Forza Enforcement guidelines, using an exploit to obtain an advantage is not allowed. This applies to glitches and credit hacking, the latter of which is the only instance in which you can receive an auto-ban. Non UGC in-game issues are addressed via our support ticketing system and we do our best to address those based upon the tickets submitted, so please continue submitting tickets for issues you may encounter.

We understand that you may want to bring issues to our attention in the official Discord, which we welcome, but we cannot discuss bans in the official Discord. Those in the channel who are discussing bans will receive a warning from the moderators reminding them of the rules. But in the event of repeated violations a Discord ban will be issued by the Discord moderators. The rules for our official Discord can be found in the #rules-and-guidelines channel.

If you’ve been issued a ban that you disagree with, you can submit a ticket through our support site and our team will respond.

Related to this, we also wanted to directly address a video posted by AR12Gaming, where several related points were made. We really appreciate this conversation with our community, and wanted to speak very transparently about it.

1) Designs and Paints: As mentioned above, a clear list of our enforcement policies have been posted for everyone to see. Enforcement of these policies is consistently applied. It was stated that Shinyodd was banned due to a new logo being added to our prohibited list. This was not the case. Shinyodd was banned for applying a pornographic livery.

2) Leaderboards: Moderation of leaderboards is handled via our ticketing system. All reported instances of illegitimate leaderboard entries are investigated. After a thorough review, if the entry is deemed illegitimate then it is deleted. Another point raised here was related to Scaans being temporarily banned for utilizing a known exploit in the game. We agree that this ban was egregious, and are seeking to clarify our policies. However, it is highly unusual that a player would get banned for exploiting a bug in the game.

3) Automated Bans: Automated bans only happen for extreme cases of hacking credits. This has been reviewed thoroughly, and we do not have any cases of false positives. All other cases are manually reviewed by an enforcement team.

We always strive to improve and continually evaluate the guidelines that are currently in place within the game itself as well as our social spaces to ensure that we are fostering a safe, inclusive, and welcoming community. It’s important to note that we have no desire to ban our players & fans. As we hope you can understand, it’s challenging to balance an ecosystem enjoyed by such a massive number of passionate & diverse people, and while we recognize there is some work to be done to improve our processes & transparency, please know that we have the best interests of the entire community at heart.

If you have additional feedback related to our guidelines, we encourage you to respectfully share your thoughts in the forums. Thank you for being a Forza fan – we value your input and dedication to the game.

Just started up FH4.

When I exited the usual menus to get in my car, the car moved left, the screen went blank for a second and immediately all the graphics changed. It might be my imagination but everything looked brighter, crisper, and much nicer. If there has been an adjustment - well done PG and many thanks.

I think it's just a bug where you get into your car twice.
