Forza Motorsport 7 July Development Update

FM7 July Update.png

The new update for Forza Motorsport 7 features plenty of work on their growing Forza Race Regulations.


The new July update is again a big one, and is sure to please the Forza Motorsport 7 playing community. Adding to the popular Xbox One and Windows 10 PC racing game yet further refinements to how the in game Forza Race Regulations (FRR) function and interact with the player experience, the July update brings with it something new - avoidable contact penalties. Pretty handy for anyone who has experience of racing with this game in public lobbies...

Intended to focus "on penalizing the most egregious examples of contact (i.e. intentional ramming) in the game", the 'avoidable contact' element of the FRR aims to use a mix of variables such as speed, position and effect of content when considering if the incident requires the game to penalise the player for their actions. The real world Formula One series could do with some of this coding if recent races are anything to go by....

As well as the FRR update, July also brings with it further game enhancements in the form of some update work having taken place around the Free Play Drift event settings, audio and UI improvements and various other miscellaneous items.

The July update marks the penultimate new build for Forza Motorsport 7, with development planned to come to a close at the end of next month.

FM7 is available on Xbox One and W10 PC now.

Now this is what GT sport got right from the beginning, still feel that GT sport is more relevant than FM7 with the monthly content added.

The wheel is still 180 degrees locked right? I get back to the game once they changed that. Not likely.

Training and qualifying would be nice, but I see there no chance to get.

Not going to put any links here but this is a common thing. You can Google the problem and lots of information comes up.
You'll find the fix at the official Forza Motorsport forum.

Same here... no idea how to fix it. As I am typing this, I am reminded that FM7 might have issues with G-Sync/Freesync tech? Have you tried disabling that if you have it?
