How will anna be controlled as far as voice commands?
Can we use our headset to control her like we can use our headsets to use cortana?
I have been wondering for a while.

Thanks a very good question! I think that Anna should be mainstream now Forza Horizon games going forward. But first the folks who maintain the XBOX OS should fix the OS for Kinect for it is currently broken and not working since they released the new Windows 10 for XBOX. I would like to be able to talk to Anna via FH2 as I did in the past, but Kinnect doesn't even see any more - the screen is blank on my box!

This is the description from Horizon 2:

Quote:
As you explore the world, you’ll be able to take advantage of Horizon 2’s all-new onboard assistant ANNA. Part GPS system and part game guide, ANNA can give you directions to any spot on the Forza Horizon 2 map, including the most relevant challenge for the car you’re driving. If you’ve got a Kinect for your Xbox One, you’ll be able to control ANNA with your voice, leaving your hands free to get on with the business of collecting victories. ANNA will also make intelligent recommendations based on your progress through the game. If your friends kick off a new Online Road Trip, ANNA will alert you and offer to seamlessly connect you into their online match. At any point in the game you can ask ANNA, “What should I do next?” and she’ll reply with great options designed specifically for you.

What does "most relevant challenge for the car you’re driving" mean?
She seems to be much more integrated into the game hmm.

Would be nice if we could so the people that do not own Kinect won't be left out. I like how they implemented this with Cortana recently. Let's wait and see.

Xbox One S does not even have a Kinect port right?

Correct, you need to buy a USB adapter if you want to use a Kinect on the One S.

Seeing the Xbone S reveal it looked like you don't even get a standard XBone chat headset either.... :-/
I once read a book on Black Holes. But on reflection it wasn't very enlightening and I couldn't see the relevance of it.

Which will run you about I think $40 - $50 just for the adapter.

Will there be a way to turn off Anna suggestions in the full game, as I find it annoying as she also changes the satnav destination.

Loving the demo btw its looking a amazing :)

Thanks in advance :)

How could they miss the opportunity to name the AI assistant Cortana? Particularly with the addition of the warthog from Halo.

Plenty of ways, apparently. Including just telling her that you're not interested in what she's selling as soon as she introduces herself. Should be down and right on the d-pad, IIRC.

Honestly, tho, our resident Betty seems to be much better integrated than it was in Horizon 2. Even without the use of voice commands, she's been quite useful when I wanted to focus on getting things done rather than just hooning around in my green, mean boogan-mobile. And I figure that will come in handy when there won't be one, but 350 cars to drive and get lost with.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work without Kinect. At least for now.

Maybe they'll patch it, but using the pre access with the ultimate version of the game, I haven't been able to controller her with my headset.

Thought with the implementation of Cortana for all, they'd have taken advantage of it, but it doesn't seem like it...

Just wondering if there's a way to turn off anna, it gets a tad annoying everytime it decides to recommend a route to something I have no interest in

Because she won't shut the up even when I have "GPS Voice" set to off ...

Right when I'm in the middle of concentrating on a Drift Zone or something else she'll start spouting off about some stupid thing she wants me to go do. AAAAAAAARG!!!

So frustrating.

I find Anna quite annoying so far. She pop up on her own every now and then to ask if I want a waypoint set to a nearby bucket list or PR event.

My only problem with voice commands is that my wife is called Anna; I'd be annoying her something chronic!

She is very annoying and quite distracting. This is the weakest link in the game, imho.
