You know Notifications are set to ON by default... so you had to have turned it off at some point; probably trying to quiet ANNA...

Not a defect/glitch/oversight or lack of care when you go and gum up the works for yourself. Just saying.


Disabling notifications shouldn't prevent the actual things it's notifying you of from happening altogether.


It was discussed during the first forzathon that had pr stunts in it that you required you to have notifications on otherwise you wont see that you 3 starred it anyway
It shouldn't affect it but it does

It doesn't shut Anna up anyway by turning them off

Lots of stupid things are on by default.

What REALLY doesn't help are people like you attacking people looking for help rather than finding a way to help them.

If this was such a well known requirement, then why did no one before me, particularly a T10 representative, jump in and offer this helpful tip.

It certainly is oversight and lack of care if it is not a defect or glitch.

I'm not attacking you. I hope you figure out what you did to make Forzathon not work. I hope you get all Forzathon challenges and rewards.

You say stupid things are on by default... well maybe the people who MADE the game, know something you don't, and this isn't new information... it has been brought up several times... over the last 6 months. I don't feel like I need to hand hold someone who can easily READ. You didn't discover this, you aren't the first, you aren't special. You feel that something is owed to you because of whatever... but when the reality of 'maybe it's your fault' sets in, you get upset... 'well the developer should know I was gonna do something to hurt myself' Sorry, it doesn't work that way...
Forzathon has worked for me since day one, and you know why? Because I don't do anything weird... I don't try messing with the game or playing around with settings. Its simple stuff.

I just find it sad that frustration on your end, MUST mean that people at Turn10 'don't care'. Also Turn 10 is a developer, not a publisher, so expecting a 'representative' to answer your questions specifically is entitlement at its finest... talk to MS, report your issues in Support, send an email to the feedback address.

Again, I hope everything works out for you.

If it's possible to configure the game with settings the developers themselves provide and this stops features from working it IS the developers fault. It's a bug.

I have been working on getting the right Nissan (for me) to complete the 'Sushi Roll' in the upcoming Forzathon. I thought I would share this info as it might be helpful to some and hopefully negate any headaches.

I have found the '94 Nissan Silvia K'S is one the easiest cars to achieve a Barrel Roll in the Timber Yard. Coming in from the North of the Map to the left high timber stack and just hit the left corner of the same stack. You should be able to get the car to roll easily. No faster than 120-130 KPH or you will over-rotate the car and fail the Barrel Roll.

Shameless plug time. I have created a Tune that puts it up to a S1 class but it is nice handling as a 4wd rally car, not a great tune but it will get the job done. And I did a Paint for it as well. Just search my GT and "Barrel Roll" and download. Please. And Like. Please. Tune is a bit high @ 60k but just think about how much you could save but not buying this HE from the Auction House........

Tried the Nissan Titan but it's a bit of a slow moving monster. There are other trucks I would rather race. I have finished the whole game, including Blizzard Mountain, but nothing is as easy as the Timber Yard.

No, it's perfect for it. Just use S2 (or S1 - I dont remember which is maxed out) tuning with the best max speed value and then that really easy. I tried and it really works. I use the stone next to the first Warning Jump you did in the forest. I dont remember thats Timber Yard or not. Just drive down the mountain to gain the speed and then achieve the stone (the left site of it is better if I remember clearly). Just change position of one, front wheel (next to the edge) of the end of stone and the barrel roll made by itself.

Personally it was something that T10 could have posted... and back in the day when there was community, Fred, Brian, John would have... but I guess we are past that point now, for whatever the reason, The atmosphere is certainly different.

We don't feel entitled - we just miss the way it was. I had no issues at all getting the Forzathon, but had no idea what the fix was for so many that couldn't so I just kept quiet, because I knew there was nothing that I could type that would help.

For "Sushi Roll" I have created a custom bucket list where I use the '66 Silvia to do the 15 rolls.
I'm using the Pony Express BL at the airport near the loading ramps. I'm using no rewind to make it more of a challenge.
It's great fun to practice there and I must have done at least 100 rolls by now :) I'm ready! Bring it!

EDiT: Why the '66 Silvia? Size. I found it makes rolling much much easier since it's quite small. I made an S2 902 tune so it has some punch. I tried the GTR HE but the huge wing made it a hassle.
Also you don't need to make a BL. You can of course do this event without. I made a custom one that counts rolls so it would be easier for me. Good luck :)

Might as well be "complete 15 barrel rolls in a Silvia". After blowing the barrel rolls at the Timber Mill with the GT-R Black Series Horizon Edition, I tried doing the airport ramps with the 1992 Nissan Silvia Club K's from Forzathon, and that thing does barrel rolls without even trying. So if you are trying to get the Spec-R Silvia Horizon Edition from Forzathon, keep in the model line and use a Silvia.
