Forza Motorsport 4 - Under the Hood - Part 3
I have C&P the info from the original post on forzamotorsport.net but not all the info from the complete article so if you want more info click the image below. It is simply to point 2 things out one is the Bonus you get for difficalty settings and second one I am going to like with BIG IMAGES (3840x2160 Now thats a nice size Image right?)
Improved AI is only part of the challenge in the game; there’s also a whole new difficulty level to the game. Tell us about “Expert” setting.
There are five macro difficulty settings in FM4. These settings change all of the individual difficulty settings below them. However, like in all of the Forza Motorsport games, you can still customize the individual settings as well and thus create your own “custom” macro. And, as before, the more difficult you make it, the more your credits get scaled. The Expert setting moves everything to its hardest level. To illustrate:
ABS = Off
Steering = Simulation
STM = Off
TCS = Off
Shifting = Manual w/ clutch
Suggested Line = Off
Damage = Simulation
Rewind = Off
Opponent Difficulty = Professional
Opponent Upgrades = Upgraded
Class Restrictions = Limited
All together, these settings give you a 165 percent bonus on your credits in Event List (more than the difficulty settings did in Forza 3). In World Tour, the bottom three settings can’t be changed due to the dynamic AI difficulty system, but they still pay out a credit scalar.
(Do you think this will stop anyone Modding the Credits?)
But I do like this:
- We changed our compression library on standard 1280x720 photos. These are still compressed, but they feature far less artifacting than in Forza 3.
- We’ve added a photo option called Big Shot. In Big Shot, there is no compression and the file is output at 3840x2160 resolution. Like regular photos in Forza 3, players can take Big Shots during races from the pause menu, from within replays, as well as in the career homespace. Obviously, these Big Shot files are huge. As a result, you can only save a very limited number of these to the server at a time. As with WMV files in Forza 3, your best workflow will be to take a shot, upload it to the server, retrieve it and then replace it with another shot. Because Xbox 360 file I/O is encrypted, there is no support for saving these files in an unencrypted fashion to a USB drive for easy PC retrieval. On the bright side, with no compression and massive resolution, Big Shot produces print quality photographs.
- We’ve added a new option to select vignette filters to add to the picture. These allow you to add another post effect (like sepia) to your shots without taking them into Photoshop.
- Finally, photographers can take photos in more career homespace locations. In Forza 3, the career homespace was a special version of the lowest corner of Camino Viejo full. In Forza 4, players can choose from six different homespaces each featuring a distinct look. This collection of homespaces includes the white garage from the E3 2010 Autovista demo, the Top Gear Studio interior recently shown at Gamescom, as well as a new interior space we call the Warehouse, among others.
