      something i think would be neat to incorporate into the livery editor, would be the ability to place logos/layers on side windows and the top portion of the windshield.

      obviously nothing obstructive, but having a name on the rear window like a tin top would be cool, and same with windshield banners like most race cars.

      also i think metallic vinyl would be great to add since it seems a lot of race cars use them.

      Weather is negligible for me. I used to be all "oh wow, I can drive the ring in the snow!". Now I'm like...yeah, I realize it's possible to drive the ring in the snow...but I'd rather do it in the dry.

      Whenever a game has weather (excluding F1 2010, fyi...) it seems to overuse it. It never snows in Sebring, I don't need to know what it would be like if it did. I certainly don't need to know what it would be like 1 out of ever 2 races. And especially not in the "Supercar Showdown" event where I get to choose between a Koeniggsegg CCX, a Pagani Zonda F, and a Murcialago SV. Yes, I am talking to you, PGR4.


      As for wheels, I've never been impressed. However, my brother just got his Fanatech GT2 wheel on Monday. He's bringing it down this weekend. I'm anxious to try it. Floor mounted pedals like in an old 930.

      x2... I only care about weather if it is a Rally game. I won't even drive my S2000 in snow and rarely in rain. Day and night driving will be good. But honestly, I rather have more real life road (example: Tail of the Dragon, Col De Turini, San Bernardino Pass..) but with some "local traffic" (use some low tier cars in the game) "driving" (not racing) around. Like the old Test Drive or Need for Speed 1.

      I read that they got the sound guy from PGR4 onboard. I havent played that game but everyone seemed to like his wirk. Anyone own that game that feels that the sounds in Forza might finally get some uniqueness?

      Forza sound was not that bad... still miles better than GT series.

      I like that all the DLC is in game. You can buy the cars by the pack or individually.

      They are bland. They were generic and just lumped v6,v8,v10,v12 sounds and spread them out. At least in Forza 2 you could hear a difference on exhaust upgrades. Neither title has really delivered in that catagory.

      I loved hearing the VR snarl with VR6 equipped VWs in Forza, same with the vtec kicking in with Hondas. Not all the sounds are perfect but I think the FM sounds are a notch or two above GTs.

      I agree between those two titles but I was asking if anyone has PGR4 and can confirm the sounds are more realistic. Because that guy is now working on FM4. Its a good thing apparantly. I just have never played PGR4.

      I don't remember the engine noises particularly standing out on PGR4, but it's been 2 years or more since I've played it.

      I thought NFS Shift 1 did a really good job of capturing engine noises from some of the exotics. The Pagani Zonda R in that game sounds closer to real life than either F3 or GT5.

      As much as I can't wait for this game, I would also like to see the MKIII GTI put in the game, I would like to have my real life car in the game as well as in the driveway. I mean I know its suppose to be a racing game and the MKIII was a racer was it not? at one point? I don't know I just hope they fix the MP options and make it worth the buy.

      i agree. although i drive a mk4 gti, the .:R will have to settle. i know it's a long shot but i wish you could do like... badgeless grilles, boser hoods, and actually slam the car to the ground. ..... just for picture purposes of course

      I'll get it. I'm hoping more stores get the SKU's in their system so I can preorder it. Seems only EB/Gamestop has them in their system in Canada.

      Also have to see which store offers the best bonus DLC for preordering...

      no one know... because 1M is NOT part of the LCE. It is part of the pre-order/launch bonus... and we don't know about North American retailer pre-order info yet...

      BTW, there is also a rumor that AMG Transport Dynamics (aka ASKLON) is one of the 80 Manufacture in Forza 4. It is the maker of the Warthog used in Halo!!

      Has anyone found out if the inclusion of Ruf means they no longer have Porsche? This would be a HUGE disappointment for me, potential for not buying the game even.

      i would be very disappointed without Porsche but there are still too many other cars to enjoy in it to not buy it.

      i was racing online last night in A600 driving the GT3 RS and a GT2 and i would be sad if i couldnt use those in FM4.

      No clue yet. No confirmation either that Porsche is in or not in. I too would be massively disappointed since every Forza has had Porsche in it. But it won't stop me from buying the game. I mean Porsche has never been in GT and I've bought every full release to date excluding only Prologues

      this a slowed down leak vid from Turn10...



      first manufacturer is Asklon, and i too was worried about Porsche, especially since it barely shows up in this slowed down version.

      but take it for what it's worth considering it's not official.
