Microsoft PR reached out to us in regards to this topic, delivering a statement from Turn 10’s Studio Software Architect Chris Tector.
Thar Microsoft PR machine running on only one core cause Im getting incosistant percormance on my end. Never change Microsoft, you keep the internet fun, lol
Regardless... the demo still had technical issues.
Wow.. a demo had technical issues. Are we complaining about A DEMO having TECHNICAL ISSUES?
As in being poorly optimized... Same thing happened with Forza Horizon 3.
Whether or not the final game is the same, putting out a buggy demo is still not a great decision. First impressions matter a lot, and many people use demos to determine whether they will buy the full game or not.
@jrshankill a demo is supposed to show off how the game runs, a demo is NOT a beta. It's not to test specs out, it's to show off the game to the public to make them buy it. It's not extended playtesting. Maybe learn what the difference is between a demo and a beta.
Lol they come out and say they runs on one core on purpose, it backfires, and now they are saying it wasn’t miscommunication, it uses all cores? Benchmarks don’t lie, if there are reports it uses one core, then it uses one core, unless they release a patch that fixes it.
Obviously it doesn't use one core. This should have been obvious to anyone with proper reading comprehension as the post (from the original source) mainly said one of the core is used 100%, not that the other cores aren't used. This should have been obvious by anyone with some technical incline.
Yeah you tell them. Oh wait this is a pointless article.
Microsoft your definitely turning into Frost now I'm just waiting for that erase.
Lmfao i just seen the ep right now lmfao great facking timing
Open mouth, insert foot. Just stop and patch it.
TBH I don't know anyone on who primarily plays on PC that planned on buying this game anyways.
At least as many as those who bought Apex. May be more because it is an even more feature rich game.
Apex was free. There are so many options on PC when comes to Sim Racers. Also 99% of the people I know refuse to buy any game that restricted to Win10.
@bigpappy Forza Apex was free but didn't have only online MP last time I checked. So no one "bought" it. My guess is because Turn 10 was testing PC hardware for Forza 7 http://support.xbox.com/en-...
Me for one. Besides that... that doesn't make it right
They very good at lies and games and just bs in people as always I can't wait too see back of em I really hope it's there last gen, amazon come on release a console or Netflix plz
Lol please tell us how you really feel
No one can tell me why Microsoft would deliberately screw PC gamer only. Every conspiracy theory I’ve heard is STUPID. Everyone of them. 1) WHAT DOES IS BENEFIT MS TO Have a crappy PC version when they are trying to make people buy from the Windows 10 store? Oh cause they are evil. Great argument!! 2) THEY WANT PEOPLE TO BUY AN X! They don’t make money on X so yet another dumb argument. 3) THEY WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THE X CAN MATCH THE PC VERSION! And yet DF said the FORZA 7 version on PC uses a slightly better AA tech but all the bells and whistles cost a very expensive PC. Plus we have multiple other games that indicate the X can run games at max PC settings. Keep being dumb
Of course- its utterly idiotic. But hey, let the morons enthuse about how MS is deliberately haemorrhaging itself on PC and causing more people to be disgruntled...because that's a great strategy!
Hey was canceling Scalebound and Fable and closing a bunch of studios when they had almost no other games and were releasing a new console a good strategy? No, well it didn't stop them from doing it. It actually makes a lot of sense for them to prefer people buy the game on console from the basic standpoint of needing X to sell well to gain market share but also things like live subscriptions (which you don't have to pay on PC) and to get players in the door who are more likely to use pay features like game pass. I can't prove they are sabotaging the PC version but I can say with 100% certainty they would prefer people buy an X to play the game.
"Hey was canceling Scalebound and Fable and closing a bunch of studios when they had almost no other games and were releasing a new console a good strategy? " Wtf is this about ? Are you saying that they deliberately planned to cancel Fable and Scalebound after sinking so much money into it? Lol that makes no sense at all. "It actually makes a lot of sense for them to prefer people buy the game on console" What doesn't make sense is for them to deliberately sabotage their own game on PC. That is utterly moronic and anyone who subscribes to that needs to get their head checked. "I can't prove they are sabotaging the PC version but I can say with 100% certainty they would prefer people buy an X to play the game." Preferring people playing on console is one thing, pissing people off by deliberately sabotaging their own game is entirely something else. I'm sorry but any level headed person will realise just how stupid it is to believe MS is going out of its way to do that.
@Ashlen Try harder fanboy. Crying about Scalebound is all the ammo u fanboys have had recently. Embrace the beast.
Of course they aren't messing up the pc version on purpose. They just pust very little effort into it like all of their pc ports.
Man this must be a PR nightmare for you guys! You are all working overtime doing damage control, Phil Spencer must be proud. :)
'They don't make money on X' is an even dumber response. So your saying that ms don't want people to by an x because they don't make money on it. Lmfao.
Microsoft being Microsoft. There no need a high end pc to run forza. Just poor version for pc gaming
Maybe Xbox would be a better brand, if people named Phil and Aaron didn't exist.
PC gamers are not to be disrespected. If Microsoft respects us,we respect them. Same applies to honesty. If not,we look elsewhere for gaming needs.
Like Where? Consoles? I thought PC gamers laugh at us peasants.
Lol at folks and these conspiracy theories. Seems like too much energy wasted on mess like this. Turn10 are the best developers when it comes to racing games. They've shown they can come in and compete with the Gran Turismo series and then take the 👑.
Uh huh sure
Why does it seem like Apex is better optimized than Forza 7? Surely MS wouldn't be intentionally lazy with the PC version to make the Xbox version look better comparatively? I know it's supposed to be their showcase Xbox X game, but they can't think people are that stupid, right?
It's not. Apex loads up a single core in exactly the same manner.
The question is will it be better than GT? That's what this silly crap about a demo is reall really all about!
surely it does not matter , drive club scored lower than forza but all we got was lool at those graphics! so forza will will be the best as it will look better go by their logic.
So that's not the reason for all the reported technical problems then, ok got it.
The article make it seem its a mistake on MS side while the real dumbasses are the ones reported about it. The Dev talked about one thread on one core that polls input in a thread loop in parallel to all the other threads on the other cores doing the AI and feeding the GPU. Only someone with no glue how games work could make an article out of it that one core runs the complete game. What a BS. SMH. It would be better the author would look for another joy because tech is not his strength here!
The original statement never said it was running on 1 core to begin with.. All they said it that it was maximizing one core for input.
Running Forza 7 demo @ 60fps 4k on an i5 2400 and RX 470. Does not need a big system.
I've been in test cars that only ran in half of their cylinder because of software. This is a none issue as long as it happens before the public release. WOW Xbox X is a beat if could even run the game on one core for so long before it was discovered as a problem lol
