Forza Horizon 5

I accidentally made a brilliant drift car, I had the idea of making an off road MX5 with jacked up suspension and chunky tyres, I also upgraded the engine and oily bits. It turned out to be a rubbish off road car but is insanely driftable even with traction control on.

Well I got the 10 ultimate drifts, and then won 4 races, but it didn’t trigger- went back in to see that it put me back at the start of chapter 3. Did the 10 drifts again, won two races and went for dinner. Those were definitely there.

 

Loaded the game up again, and now I’m right back at the start of chapter 1 again. What’s the point of having challenges like this if the game can’t even cope with them???

I completed 2 of the 4 races last night but luckily my progress was still there today when I loaded the game back up.

What had disappeared was the 3 (of 5) "complete arcade round 3" within 24 hours accolade progress.  That, and the other complete multiple arcade accolades seems super buggy though and normally won't even get above 1 no matter how many times I complete arcade

The treasure hunt is also bugged this week, if you've already three starred all the trailblazers it won't trigger. Very frustrating.

FFS how do they let such stupidly obvious bugs get through!

I had some that were only 2 star but getting the full 3 stars on a couple of them has not triggered the treasure hunt either.  Neither has beating my PB on one that was already 3 starred.

Played a fair few hours of this since launch and for me I think 3/4 was better. 

 

The map isn't very memorable imo, and lacks diversity in biomes. I always love a good city area in the biomes, like Edinburgh in 4. Guanajuato isn't a patch on Edinburgh for racing round.

 

Maybe I'm just tiring of the constant icons scattered round the map formula and crave something with abit more structure and progression in my racers like PGR series had.

late to the party, utterly incredible but had some proper game breaking bugs like. 

 

I've had whole chapters unlock but I've not done them, just doing the Stunt Driver series but it's already ticked on the list. 

 

Great game but so many bugs. 

 

In other news, this drifty little MX5 I built feels like a cheat mode as wherever I drive I'm snaking it there racking up points. It's a brilliant car.

Still fantastically broken.

 

The treasure hunt didn't trigger for me and I have VERY much not 3 starred the trailblazers.

 

I tried to do the monthly rivals for 4 points and it got stuck loading forever (I gave up at 10 minutes). So I killed the game and it crashed on startup. Twice.  Had to restart the console to play it.

 

At which point the accolades for the "Holiday" section are b0rked.  Pin the one about getting trees and canes in a Mazda and the pins says "Do 5 air skills 0/25".

 

And it's all but impossible to drift in the ice rink anyway but the pin about doing so starts talking about an Escort Cosworth and earning a bunch of skill points.

 

So I've no idea how I'm even scraping together 25 points this season.

It will still be broken as they havent released another patch yet, and probably broken afterwards as well! 🤣

I'm on a OneX and seeing as how the last patch made it loads worse on SeriesS/X I'm looking forward to it being my turn to get the shit update.  Not that anything much was fixed on OneX last time, they just didn't break it any further.

 

I had a new bug today though while trying to join the seasonal trial, it kept telling me that the FH5 server version was invalid, like that's something I can control! 🤣.  I even checked and there was no game update available for me to download.

It was like that for me since the season started, they appear incorrect on screen when pinned but they do track and unlock if you do the activity that is on the card.  Just ignore what appears on screen other than the progress numbers.

Not sure if they are easier than usual, I'd only tried them once in previous seasons (and failed), but I found all of the championships to be pretty easy this time.  That will get you 15 points, add in the daily items, the photo and you are pretty much there.  The PR events are all easy this season too.

The Trial is such a waste of time. Even if you get a decent team people drop at the first sign it's going to be an actual challenge so you've fucked it. Stupidly frustrating.

 

It's better to stick with it. You really just need one good person on your team and if lots of people drop after the first race, they're going to get all the points for you. I frequently come in last in those trials, much to my shame, so thanks to those who can do it.

I can't do drifts in the ice anyway so that's out.  But yeah looking at it I can probably scrape together the rest from championships and I do want that car.

 

I'd like the 45 point car too but that's not happening at all I think.

How do you do that speed trap in the middle of the river? And if the answer is “wait for the correct season” I am going to be Very Put Out.

 

I don't know the one you mean but there were certainly things in 4 that were impossible outside of one season, I remember a lake that froze over with a bonus board in.

You need to use something with massive tyres and high ground clearance so you don't get hung up on the water. I used a  tuned Jeep Trailcat and am sitting on the top of the MUK leaderboard. #smug

Yeah I tried every method under the Mexican sun and no dice. I wouldn’t be that bothered as there’s still enough to get the weekly rewards by doing the other championships and stuff, but it means that we have to wait yet another month to have a chance at the achievement for completing all objectives in a series. 🤬 

 

Love the game but they ain’t half made a balls up with all these niggling little bugs that are infesting it at the moment.

they're ending the forza hub next year so no

I didn't realize they were turning it off. I still do it because my son wanted to do the hot wheels expansion, and I realized I had years worth of unclaimed credits, presumably dating back to FH4 release. Raked in 20 odd million and haven't had the patience to finish collecting it all yet.
