I read that to play on pc, you have to buy a digital copy. Can anyone confirm otherwise?

Not entirely true. You need an XB1 to activate it but once you've done that its available on Windows if your accounts are sync'd

Had a great time last night with MMJ and Murphy.

We formed up as a group then went online as club members in online adventure mode.

So we spent most of the time racing as a team vs other people and teams.

The in game mic seems to stay on or off for no reason, so I have found a fix that should help as we don't want other people knowing our KSR secrets and strategy.
EG Watch out MMJ's Holden is coming Thru......

Saw on Reddit a user disabled chat.

To do this: - Exit your game. - Go to your start menu in windows 10 and type 'Privacy Settings'. - Go to 'Microphone Privacy Settings' - Click on Microphone and disable Forza 3's acces to your microphone (slidey on / off switch). - Restart your game.

I was jamming with MMJ and Thorpe (mate from work this morning) quite easily. We just added each other on the Xbox/Windows App and then when ingame you create a party and send them an invite. Once they accept the party leader can then start/setup races and events etc quite easily.

You need to upgrade your second festival to level 2 to access online and then upgrade your 3rd festival to level 2 to access the club.

I'm getting frustrated to hell with the steering wheel settings. The car doesn't turn in, and its a pain drifting in a straight line at over 200kph...

You have to save then share the photo then wait a bit.
Then download it from my photos from froza hub to your pc.

I am using a controller until the next patch which will fix wheels hopefully.

http://forums.forzamotorsport.net/turn1 ... Notes.aspx
Today we will launch the latest content update for Forza Horizon 3 on both Xbox One and Windows 10. We expect this update will go live around 10 a.m. Pacific. This latest update also includes numerous improvements for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of Forza Horizon 3. These improvements include:

Windows 10
- Fixed a performance issue on Windows 10 that caused stuttering with high or unlocked framerates on certain hardware configurations

- Improved stability on Windows 10

- Disable mouse move detection while driving

- The Windows 10 video options screen will no longer ask users to save when no changes have been made

- Additional options have been added to the Windows 10 Advanced Controller Menu. These include:
o Steering wheel sensitivity
o Invert Force Feedback
o Centre spring scale
o Damping scale
- Fixed a problem where pre-order cars and the Halo Warthog were not appearing in the Windows 10 version of the game for some players


Wheel Improvements
- Logitech G27 is now registered correctly on Windows 10, so the correct default mapping will be applied

- All wheels with enough buttons have had the horn added to their default mappings on Windows 10

- Fix to dead zones for acceleration and braking axes on wheels

- Default mappings for all TX Racing Wheel variants

- Fixed a bug where custom input mappings would not save successfully


General Improvements
- The Social and Rivals tabs will now unlock for players with Xbox Live Silver accounts

- Fixed a bug where the racing line would sometimes disappear

- Controller hot swapping is now available. Players can switch between controllers/their keyboard whenever they choose (including the wheel)

- Various content fixes for cars


In addition to the fixes above arriving with today’s update, the teams at Playground and Turn 10 are working on addressing further known issues in Forza Horizon 3 including force feedback and wheel support, general stability and performance, and more. Look for more details on these improvements in the future.

...and Microsoft won't let me play the game until I install it, and they won't let me install it until I find another 60gb worth of free space.

Jeez I hate Microsoft.
