I get thats its a niche market and its not even 1% of owners on steam but its the same as multi monitor. Which doesnt work on windows games either.

It depends on the engine. A lot of game engines don't really support ultrawide and if they just change some settings to allow you to use 21:9, it will mess up the FOV (it will be similar to this). Since Forza is pretty much an Xbone game, they didn't make the engine with ultrawide in mind since all modern TVs are 16:9.

 

Could they bring in 21:9? Of course they can but it will look really weird unless they spend a lot of time and money editing their engine to support it properly. I'm sure 21:9 will be supported eventually. It looks like the Forza series is going to be the main "look at what DX12 can do" game.

Ive had a couple games that dont have native 21:9 support, it cant be that hard if someone posted fixes for both games for em to work. AC III and black flag dont worry, a new .exe file fixes it and it looks awesome. HUD stays in the same place but that doesnt bother me one bit. Its the same for witcher III to fix the cut scenes and hud simple .exe file. I dont think its that hard i think theyre just lazy to be honest.

It depends on the engine they use for the game.

 

Assassins Creed uses a game engine that is used in a lot of PC games, so it was made with multiple screen ratios in mind. It's the same for TW3. In games like that, it is a "switch" in the settings. However, Forza uses it's own custom made engine which at the time, wasn't going to be used on anything other than the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Hence why Forza Apex only has 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratio resolutions. They would have to make some pretty significant changes to get 21:9 to work properly.

 

That, and Microsoft need to add 21:9 support to games bought from Windows Store.

Damn good info. I wonder if editing hex game files would work, i think someone is looking into it, its just a total pain will all the security features of the windows app folder. Mine is unlocked on my secondary drive but the files themselves are still locked.

Got Forza to work. Not a bad game actually. Does still hang occasionally. Some files failed to download despite leaving it uninterrupted during a game re-download.

weird.

That it does, sometimes i get a freeze for a couple secs then comes back. Night and rain races still lag to all hell but its alright.

I reverted my amd drivers and put vsync back on and seems to run much bettter then before during day races.

They just released an update today. Perhaps try updating and see if that resolves things? The changelog has lots of bug fixes this time around.

78mb update? Not sure how many bugs they fixed with that, guessing 21:9 probably still isn't around haha. I can never find a changelog for it probably not looking hard enough.
