  1. Forza Horizon 3 - PC Talk

    Strangely, and annoyingly, if I enter photo mode it now drops to a much lower resolution than the resolution I am running - reducing from 1440p to easily less than 1080p - really rough looking. As soon as I leave photo mode it's all good again... It only started today and is irritating as I was really into the photo mode..

    That is a very poor substitution indeed.

    I'm addicted to the photo mode (which really could do with having a few more options but, still).

    Where is this all powerful setting?!

    Thanks for this. With my 980 Ti and old i7 CPU I had a frame rate that fluctuated between 45-60 at 1440p, sometimes jarring right down to 30fps, without any AA, and a few settings reduced from Ultra. It was pretty choppy even at 1080p. I looked at the CPU and it was at 3.4Ghz (I must have disabled the o/c years ago as I can;t recall being CPU bound in a game in an age) so I've clocked back over 4Ghz and now get a steady 60fps at 1440p. Will up all to Ultra now and see how it rolls. As I say, it's been a very long while since the CPU has had such an impact on fps.

    I have one too! I was very excited to take it out for a spin as I mostly prefer the older, slower cars. I managed no more than 200m of wobbly, bouncy, 47mph pain before turning it round and parking it back in the garage.

  9. That is acceptable then. But, seriously, the selection on FH is very entertaining. It's the classics we all know even if we don't really know them, often a bit melodramatic, always a little surreal and perfect for racing and looning around the outback.
  10. Nope. I always immediately turn music off on games but, here, I have found the classical station to be hugely enjoyable as well as being more than a little surreal as I hare around in a Subaru vs Evo dusk race accompanied by the OTT drama of 'Also sprach Zarathustra' . And I don't even listen to classical in the real world. Imagine that! I do find that the radio keeps changing at the start of an event though and that is annoying me as I do not want to listen to Blink 182. Ever.

    After haring around in a few boisterous cars for most of the day I am now spending some quality time just trundling along in a Defender . Which is, frankly, ace.

    Has anyone actually pre-loaded this? EDIT: found it. I had not realised I needed to use a Store app rather than the MS Store website.
  14. Bloodborne is the better game by a long stretch but that may be due to over familiarity with DS. It also helps that I prefer the world of Lovecraftian horror that Bloodborne inhabits to the Dark Fantasy/Mythology of DS. Obviously both are head and shoulders above anything else out there so best to play both.
