    I've got this again as I renewed the Game Pass.
    Do people here arrange online events still?

    Motherfecker these game worlds are huge. The map looks like something Ubi puked up. I'm not complaining I like lots to do. About 20 hours in and I have really done feck all. I noticed a lot of the Barn finds are still a pain, like the Drone but wish it went up higher. My one in WD2 goes on and on ;)

    @DUFFMAN5 Hey, it's actually a bit smaller than FH3!

    Probably a bit denser as well, though and certainly a lot more vertical.

    Chaps, is there a fault where your perk points reset and then they are gone forever each and every time ? I have allocated tens of them to various cars but the minute I get out of the car for a new one, upon returning I have not unlocked a single perk ???

    It is bloody annoying. My Lambo just wanted the last perk and it was maxed...only it now has no perks unlocked and the 40+ points I used have gone forever.

    Still playing plenty of this and enjoying for the most part. Truth is though I think it will be my last "racer" it is a genre I do enjoy but I'm really not very good at.
    I play with most assists on, auto gear box. I do turn off all steering aids and breaking lines though. Anyway anything other than the avatars being "new drivers" .or on occation "average" and I'm shite. I can't get a win for toffee.
    I think I just have to accept it, at least I have been playing on the 3 months for £1 offer.

    "The second game expansion is scheduled for release in the first half of 2019."

    Just thirty days left if anyone at Playground/Microsoft is reading this.
    A bit of news wouldn't go amiss.

    @DUFFMAN5 Use a full brake line and keep the auto gears if you need them but turn off traction control and stability management, I've let a good few people try the game and it makes sense to most. If it doesnt help just keep the difficulty down and enjoy the driving.

    @DUFFMAN5 It's been fixed now and I believe any lost skill points will be returned with the season 10 update coming on the 6th of June. At a guess the delay might be the skill point counter only goes up to 999 and some people are going to have five or even six digits of points to 'refund' so maybe a small code change needed to allow that to happen.

    Oh and about driving in this game, don't know if this will help or not but a mate of mine who usually hates racers joined in and had similar problems. Ended up running some co-op races where I could sorta talk him through what was coming up and we found the biggest problems he had were 1) not braking early enough for corners so he was still turning in while slowing down and 2) being a bit too aggressive so getting in places where other drivers could bump him past checkpoints or into walls. That was... maybe two months back and he's now more than capable of running in the podium places during Trial events against human teammates and 'unbeatable' drivatars (and is actually enjoying a racing game for the first time ever!).

    I'd also recommend giving the Playground Games a try. The team version can be annoying if you get a bunch of muppets but it's so entertaining if you get a good group. Very different skillset and a nice break from race tracks or point to point sprints.

    I got first place in every race in this week's Trial event. :)

    Not bad going given that a couple of months ago, I struggled to finish in the top half of the field on those. Didn't hurt that this week's event puts you in a big old Skyline (albeit under the Infiniti brand) which is a dream to drive once you learn to balance the weight going into corners.

    Although it'll be slightly late I'd lay money on that being revealed at E3.

    I'm not particularly pleased with the almost vapourware nature of the second expansion having paid the bells and whistles version and I'm sure the wait wasn't like this in 3.

    However I am predicting the E3 showing ending with 'and it's available to download right now'.

    Impossible for any game these days to hold my attention that long unfortunately.

    Did anyone else get 975 skill points 'refunded' back to you? I spent nearly 2 hours earlier using almost all of them & about 15 minutes racing. I got about seven million credits & went from level 57 to 75 (2nd go around)& only did four races.

    @welshben1982
    You got back what you had accrued during the time the game was glitched. I got around 200 which sounds about right.
    Looking for the last 3 roads, although I think if I find just one the cheveo pops, another glitch... Doesn't matter as im fooked if I can see it!

    Chaps, do we have an active club. If so can I get a (rewind) invite please. I have found two "Eurogamer" clubs, one only has 7 members though and the other which does have 88 members, but I do not recognise the name of the club owner.
    :)

    Found the last few roads, cheveo popped with 2 roads still to find, I think the previous games had this issue/glitch as well.

    @DUFFMAN5 Pretty sure it's the bigger group - I can see a lot of other members (certainly more than 7) many of which I do, but others I don't at all recognise... but then I'm also showing under my old handle in there.

    I've only got FH4 through game pass. Wondering if I should buy the DLC for a game I don't own :o

    To be honest mate there is so much content you could lose yourself for hundreds of hours!
    I'm loads of hours in and it would seem I have hardly touched it.
    Obviously the DLC is a different area/spin ;)

    The DLC expansion is self contained, so rinse the main game and then buy it if you want more motoring goodness

    The car packs are your own choice

    Does anyone know a reliable way to connect to MP on PC? I've never been able too connect, the network test says unable to resolve teredo and servers blocked. I had assumed it was down to some firewall setting I couldn't find blocking it.

    However I have now tried a complete clean install of windows with nothing but drivers and the game installed and I put the PC into the DMZ on my router. Same result.

    Something like this used to work for my brothers pc, ended up making a .bat file but was a few years ago for FH3.

    Just tried it and no luck. Honestly I'm just about ready to give up on it. Nothing I can find googling it is working and everything else other than Forza works fine. Although I haven't tried any other windows store games.

    It's absolutely ridiculous that a clean install of their own OS doesn't work with their own games.

    I don't know if you're still playing this DUFF but what I've found is that if you want to increase the difficulty level, find a tune for the particular car you want to use that has excellent launch & acceleration numbers.

    I did that & some had launch/acceleration in the 9.5 or sometimes 10 levels & I was beating 'Expert' drivatars by seven seconds on some races.

    @welshben1982 Yes, very few of FH4's race layouts prioritise top speed. Launch, acceleration and handling are the way to go. This is particularly true for the weekly Unbeatable-Drivatar challenges.
