    Default Forza 7 and GT Sport

    How many of you are playing either of these titles and what do you think of them through the lens of a simracer?

    I had planed on getting Forza 7 on PC, but I bought a Switch a week before it came out so I got Mario Kart instead.

    Also the lootboxes they put in the game on top of all the DLC you have to re-buy each iteration was a real turn off, so the hype died fairly quickly for me. I might still pick it up down the road, Forza Horizon 3 on PC was an *amazing* game.

    Has anyone tried Forza 7 on PC yet? This article is very encouraging on wheel and peripheral support. It supports multiple USB controllers as well. There is a Free Demo in the Windows store as well. Might be worth checking out.

    Guys

    I can actually recommend after testing giving this a try. Also, if anyone is interested in the full game after you play the demo, let me know and I can get you a really good discount on the game. like 30-50 percent off. I downloaded the demo and did some testing. I am pleased to report that the controller support works pretty well for PC. It supports multiple inputs, and the menus and calibration are not that difficult. I found some settings on Reddit for my wheel that are pretty close as well. I am using a Thrustmaster 300 and Fanatec Pedals. You can set it up pretty simulation like and it's a good challenge to drive, and the AI is really good in this and graphics are amazing of course.

    Download the Forza 7 demo from the MS store (windows 10 only) and if you like it and want the full game let me know on the discount.

    DA

    Dave, I found the 3 videos in this thread to be helpful on wheel setup
    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threa...pdated.359010/

    also I have the wheel set on normal mode, not simulation -- seems backwards, but feels better.

    and this one

    Well I say one thing for sure, the graphics are great, other than that it reminds me way to much of my younger years when I was wasting my quarters in the arcade.
