Forza Horizon 5 Weekly Challange - Chapter 1, Soul, Electrified - Drive the 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

Is anyone having issues with Chapter 1 not completing? I tried with both the Turbo S and the "Welcome Pack" and it won't complete.

I completed that challenge on Thursday at my end. Used the normal 2020 taycan and worked on first try

Same here. I was not even trying to complete that challenge but it checked off when I used that car for one of the championships. No issues.

That happens from time to time.   Happened to me last week with the Jaguar, the first weekly chapter didn't check off when I used it for the photo challenge on Thursday.  When I came back to it later in the week, it checked off and I was able to do it.  You can try shutting down your Xbox and pulling the power cord for a while, forcing it to do a complete shut down.  Fixes all sorts of ailments.  Did it last night since Gears 5 wouldn't connect to the online services.  Just waited until the fan shut down on the Series X before pulling the cord.

 

Also, if you're using quick resume, quit out of the game so it starts fresh from time to time.

I had had some luck with stuck chapters playing on XBox Cloud on my laptop.

MvC2 is the one arcade cabinet I've always wanted to own. These 1UP things just kinda suck though. Maybe I'll get it if it goes cheap enough eventually.

Play this all the time in MAME on retail Retroarch on xbox series S. Screw 1UP money grabs

Just found out tonight that there is a retail version of Retroarch available for Xbox. Watched this video once to get a general idea of what to do and a second time to actually follow along. I got it up and running with minimal effort. I still have a lot to do to figure it all out, but I did get SNES, N64, Mame, and even some Wii Shop titles tested and working.

Yeah I've been messing with it since ETA put up that vid. Getting PS2 games to actually launch has been hit or miss for me, but I'd reckon to guess my "sources" are bad. Been to some websites that remind me of the Angelfire/Lycos era. When I do get one to launch seems to be running full speed...mostly. Haven't really had any issues with GameCube. Now I'm getting into the danger zone of looking at the RetroAchievements thing that's hooked into RetroArch. Achievements in Super Mario you say?

Mine was stuck and like others said I restarted the game from a complete shutdown and things started working... one drawback to Quick Resume I suppose.

 

Speaking of Horizon 5 there is a new 500 points "Top Ten" rewards punch card up on the MS Rewards App on the Xbox Dashboard for getting an achievement in a handful of games. Forza 5 is in there...right after I popped just about every easy achievement in the Hot Wheels Expansion.

Thanks, for the feedback. I started the game this morning and Chapter 1 was already completed.

I was lucky enough to get in on this via the discord when invites were limited (actually a fellow CAGer posted about it so shout out to them). What is nice about it is that you can put the Roms/ISOs on an external HD and just play them in Retroarch from there. I have stopped tinkering with it personally due to distractions from other devices (Steam Deck) but others have been able to emulate Gamecube, Wii, Dreamcast, PS2, etc. I am not sure about PS3 and Switch though but I already have those systems hooked up to my TV so no need personally.

I really didn't need to know of this.  This could be a worse rabbit hole than TV Tropes.

I've been pacing myself, but was still planning to finish the game this month because it counts for TA's Open World targets.

 

You still have some easy achievements in FH5.  They fixed the 2 achievements for completing Horizon Open races in the 2021 Mercedes AMG-One and Ford Bronco.  Tomorrow's daily for taking a picture of an Extreme E vehicle should count for the seasonal activity achievement if you do it in Hot Wheels Park.

I still had the do an Event Lab in Hot Wheels so was able to do it quick. Although I did have to find a share code on the TA solution, just picking an Event Lab labeled with the "Hot Wheels" icon wasn't getting it done.

I looked up a site I used to go to in 2002-2003 maybe, and I was like "This site is still up?"

Does the phrase "ratio FTP site" ring a bell?

I finally got a cheap copy the most recent Call of Duty Modern Warfare and then discovered the appallingly still unfixed issue of not being able to launch the campaign since they merged it with Warzone. Online help videos i have followed so far have not helped. Also, it worked at first and I had the just as appallingly unfixed video glitch issue in cutscenes. It was when i followed thise steps that i made it unlaunchable i guess. Anyone got a good walkthru? I'm playing it on One X, but I just got a Series X as well.

About 6 months ago I picked it up in sale and started the campaign. After constant crashes, I uninstalled the game. Seems like things have not been fixed.

Definite memories there. Granted I'm on a wrestling ratio place for things currently so definitely still exists.

This is the thread that got me up and going.  As for the normal stumbling blocks people find, I will leave you one word to start with: Vimm. I put a SSD in my fat PS3 and it's been going great.

Subscribed to Disney+ for $2.99/month with the free Hulu promo from Xbox. Figure I can plow through the stuff I have not seen yet. The app is absolute trash though. Who designed this thing? It just seems like random categories.

I sent my Halo Elite 2 to MS for repair of a bad RB button.  They sent the correct controller back with extra thumb sticks and paddles since it said to leave those off when sending it in.  New one is working well so far.

Finished off FH5 Hot Wheels and Series 10 update achievements (just needed level 100 in open racing).

 

The open racing sets in Hot Wheels are pretty long.  Did a couple that were over 30 miles, and saw one that was 48.1.  So the 50 miles in open racing mission can probably get knocked out in a 2-3 runs.  Same thing with the 50 miles in tours mission.  For both of those missions, I got the completion pop up in the first race of the 3rd set.

 

Also leveled up quite a bit with the HW open racing, going from 89 to 195.  Did 3 runs in S1, coming in 3rd each time since only 2 other people were there the entire time, with some other people coming and going.  Smaller lobbies, better finishes, faster leveling.

When I was a kid I had to maintain ratio on dial up BBS’s.

I went from open racing 101 to over 200 from one set.  I wish I knew Hot Wheels was so quick to level before grinding in the main game.  I do have the kitty cat badge now though.

I Feel this is only happening because I bought 38 or so ACA Neo Geo games this past week so you're welcome.

 

Also my Amazon Warehouse acceptable Series X came in today. Basically everything was repackaged, but it's all the original stuff from the Series X and everything looks pristine/new and came with batteries for the controller as well in the original white baggy so I think it's all good.

Where did you find that?  I gook a quick look on the Game pass app on my console but didn't see it.  We have Disney which is expiring late next month.

 

Thanks.

Were the Neo*Geo titles arbitrage purchases or from the US store?

I bought Samurai Shodown (getting rollback), KOF15 (getting crossplay), and the Neo Geo games.  Argentina is leading the fighting game renaissance.

 

I was hoping for a current gen version of Tekken 7.  Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting Series/PS5 updates with rollback.

 

I really need to get a stick.  I wish there was one that worked on Series and PS5 without adapters or hanging controllers off of it.

A mysterious benefactor from Argentina, but if those games ever snowball's chance in hell go on sale again on XBox, I'll buy the other half or so I'm missing because now that I'm this far into the ACA game I might as well finish it out...

 

Also got Melty Blood because too fucking cheap not to and Samurai Shodown Anthology because cheap and also because I bought it on PS4 and own it on Epic so you know...fulfill it's place on the patheon of XBox fighters. Everything else I'll eventually get when it's on XBox date night and hopefully on sale.

You're going to be plugged in anyways, adapter doesn't sacrifice anything. Hit Etsy and get one with a Brook Universal board? I know the pain.
