The May 2019 update for Forza Motorsport 7 will launch on May 7 and features new Forza Race Regulations features, including ghosted back-markers and the ability to use FRR rulesets in private multiplayer lobbies, among other improvements. See the official announcement for details on all the new features coming into the game.
Below, see details on the May 2019 fixes and improvements to the game.
- Fixed an issue where headlights on some cars would not turn on during races and/or while in the pre-race lobby.
- Fixed an issue where, if a player is in a night race with a car that had pop-up headlights, then attempted to switch to another car, then backed out to keep the original car, the headlights would close and not illuminate during the race.
- Fixed an issue where a player car’s headlights would not function after entering Test Drive then changing to a car with similar headlights.
- Fixed an issue where tuning the Force Feedback scale would also scale the max torque output, causing the FFB to clip at earlier values when a player scaled the setting down.
- Fixed an issue where, when a player sets HUD Options –> Ghost to ON, the player’s hot lap ghost will appear on track and the start of the race, with the ghost remaining stationary on the track until the player completed at least one lap.
- Fixed an issue where, in Free Play, if an AI driver wins race and then the player selected “Restart Race” in the post-race menu, the AI driver’s car would appear as transparent in the podium screen.
- LAGUNA SECA: Removed false anti-cheat tire wall shadow. Also added a drift zone before Andretti Hairpin.
- SUZUKA: Removed false anti-cheat tire wall shadows. Also changed default lap count for Suzuka East Circuit lap count from two laps to four laps.
- HOMESTEAD: Removed collision mesh for previously removed anti-cheat tire wall. Fixed an issue with some tire walls on wet ribbons, which lacked collisions and featured one-sided textures.
- Fixed an issue with the PC version of the Forza Motorsport 7 free trial version crashing.
- Added ticker to Timed Races.
