Hello to all of you,
I have reently acquired the racing game Forza motor sport 7.
Like the madden game, the accessibility is not perfect, but the game is sertainly playable.
Over the next week or so, I will be doing some videos similar to the one's I did in madden.  I would also  like people's feedback on what other games you all would like,  as I plan on trying to expand my own play styles.  ALso, when Madden 19 comes out, I will be tackling it, as well.
I still have to do a lot of work on the Madden 18 user guide, which is doable, but the Holiday's were long, and I also was sick. Thanks for your understanding, and I have not forgotten you all.
Darrell

Hello,
I can't promise full accessibility,  but I will show you what we can do. However, I'm recovering from Bronckitus, so I'm not putting my voice out there until it's healed. However, I am going to start working on the text manual,  and I hope to start videos sometime next week. I love doing this, and if you like, you can look at my stuff on Madden. go to youtube and look up vol4life8657 and you should find me. That's whare you will see my new video.

Well waiting to see news on that.
Is really insteresting that someone says that forsa have... so, a small portion of accesibility.
well, if you can drive the car without loosing the trace of the way, is the most important thing that we need to start try to play an awesome car racing game.

Hi.
I look very much forward to hear more about that. I find it difficult to imagine how a mainstream racing game would be playable.

Best regards SLJ.

@SLJ: Quite a few have driving assists built in
@Addolis: FM7 is the weakest in the series, you have the game built from the ground up to have short races, then  have to buy lootcrates and have certain cars locked behind lootcrates. Add to that the....questionable physics of certain car/track combos (the oval racing comes to mind and certain cars are undriveable by default even for people with wheels and such...) and you have a game that's only enjoyable with certain cars and track combos.

Short version: You may well be disappointed with FM7, I'd honestly turn your attention to Forza Horizon 3 which is more arcade oriented and open world style of game. It'd fit better with what you're trying to do, mostly since Forza 7 has a  lot of loading screens.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.

@7
I think you're missing a very important point about FH3, which you even mention yourself - it's open world.  When I downloaded the demo and gave it a shot, within approximately 2 minutes I was stuck with nowhere to go.

FM7, on the other hand, has a menu system for getting into races, though admittedly working with driver assists seems to be problematic but I've not tried the demo much at the minute.

Okay guys, this game has been a long time  coming, but alot has happened in my life.
I am going to tell you that this was done with mixer. The quality is mono, I have no idea how to fix it, and mixer does not seem to want to.  Twitch is not accessible,  through the xbox,  so that was not an option.  Anyways, here is the link for the forza demo.
I promise I will do more, and I still want to write that manual as well, but I am also starting a new job on monday, so it will take some time.

wow, game sounds amazing, thankyou for the upload. the big question I have, which I hope you was going to address in the vid is how do you handle turning? when do you know a turn is approaching? how do you know if to turn left or right? how do you know when the turn is over so you can straighten back up your car. I am familiar with the driving assisting options the game has, but to my understanding it has no sound q or vibration for turns, only a visual line that help sighted players

I think you should try to do a stereo demo at some point.

2018-03-31 03:29:41

He couldn't though. The only way to would be to run the controller audio through line-in, which is actually possible without lag - just make sure you're close enough to the console so that the controller audio doesn't stutter, as the wifi antenna is, well, mediocre at best.

I'm the only adventure at c: master hahahaha I have unlocked just about everything!

ActuallyI sent  them the link, and they are looking in to it. I used mmixer through the xbox.

To continue with that,  I could use twitch  and the next time I will, but amber is going to have to help me with it, because the xbox version is not accessible.

I couldn't understand the video as the engine noise was too loud over your voice unfortunately, I don't suppose you might be able to explain a little here in text about how you were able to play? I assume it is largely through assists? And if so, do you have any thoughts about tweaks that could be made to allow you to play with a lower level of assists?

ok, so after hearing the vid I had to take this for a spin on my own at a friend's house, and here are my thoughts

1. the game is very much playable with all the assistive options. with all options set on the correct setting, you wont need any sited assistance during a race, and you will even get first place

2. options that make this game playable is, assisted turning, assisted braking, making cars invisible meaning instead of crashing into them, you will just go right through them, and lastly, the game has a rewind feature, that you can rewind the race back to whatever point you want, so for example if you do happen to crash with these options on, simply rewind back to the part before the crash, or if a car passed you, just rewind to the point back when you were in first place

with all this stuff turned on, I will admit the game can become super easy, and you will just find yourself holding rt to drive and that's pretty much it. that's may become boring to some, but I still managed to have fun, but im bias because I love racing games, and im just so damn excited that we can play one on a main stream platform.i highly doubt the visually impaired were being thought about when these options were being put into place, I think these easy options were implemented into the game for casual players. the game can become more challenging if there was a way they could just put sound q into the game. I would actually prefer that, but hey beggers cant be choosers I suppose. but if you have a xbox I highly recommend to download the demo and take it for a spin

Hi.
I am currently downloading the demo for the PC.
Can you tell me where to turn on the settings for the assistance systems? I am wondering if I will have any success using the OCR feature.
Greetings Moritz.

Hi.
Ok, I've downloaded the demo of the game and gave it a spin, no pun intended.
I managed to enable some of the assistance system, but I don't know if they are all active or not.
Also, where can I find the option to pass through cars so you don't crash into them? I raced at the demo course, some street in Dubai and landed on rank 11 of 24, I think xD. I don't know if it would be worth to buy the full version of this game.

I can see why people would be excited about this. personally I would like to play online against others, and it doesn't seem like I'd be able to do that in its current state.
