the only thing that bugs me, compared to gt4, is that the steering in forza is 1:1 with the thumbstick.

you can go full lock to lock with the flick of a thumb in just a second.

i'm not positive (need to go test it out) but in gt4 you weren't able to do this. it was more realistic in terms of how long it takes.

you can also notice this in replays, where the wheels look a little more "twitchy" in forza.

i'm still loving forza, and still think it's better than gt4 overall. but i still love using my DFP...

Yeah, same here. Im prefering Forza over GT though I love GT with the driving force. Its just so much fun, if only the DFP worked on the xbox. :pinch:

I bet if you made a convertor (very easy, less than $3) for USB to xbox, you could plug in the DFP

Things needed:

xbox extension cord = $0 (call pelican, and tell them that you require them for your light gun. they will send them. I got 2 this way)

usb cord = <$2 (we all have plenty of them)

soldering iron

solder them together.

you just wont get the wheel lock and the force feedback.

do research before trying though.

can you go into detail about the bugs?

i have not come across any yet.

There are currently two known bugs. One that allows you do get as much $$$$ as you want, and the other that allows you to earn money that helps you level up.

THe first glitch, lets you upgrade an engine, and then buy a new engine (for cars that can do this), then re-equip the old engine, and then sell the new one. On the VW Jetta, you can buy a new engine for $2500 and sell it for around $40K

so, that is glitch one...

Glitch two allows you to play on xbox live, and lets say I host. I set the track to maple valley short, 1 lap, , and have 8 people join. As soon as the race starts, the hosts backs out to the join menu, and changes the options to Nurburgring, 25laps. Now, you will earn the money for Nurburgring, 25 laps, but only complete 1 lap at maple valley. 1st place gets around $375K

the engine one seems pretty odd. i have heard of the second one, i was just thinking more of bugs, not exploits, but i guess you could look at it either way. doesn't bother me though, i won't be touching them. and all the n00bs that want to get the fastest car, but not learn how to drive, will still get smoked.

yup! I still beat all of the enzo's with my porsche 959. Unless it is the test track that is.

I actually dont mind the bugs, or exploits. For me, it is about having the cars, spending an hour on the test track, tweaking and everyting, and then going online and seeing how I do. Everyone breaks out the Enzo's now, but thats ok. I have an Enzo, and unless I am on the test track, I'll go with my 959 everytime.

(but, i do like having the extra money for all the engine upgrades) :)

Try rocking the Ferrari F40 with a turbo upgrade. Quickest car in my stable and I have all of the Porsches.

Questions

Can you custumise your parts unlike the NFSU games where you have to buy the turbo stages.

What car Brands are there?
