    :lol: really? That's what you're pulling now? I'm not exactly sure what this is supposed to prove.

    It is 1080p 60 fps with good phusics like gt or not?
    By the way it doesn't look even closer to gt graphics

    What you are asking for, not even GT achieves, so why are you asking for others in comparison?

    So you are saying that GT6 isnt even running true 1080p, just a resolution that is close to it when displayed on a full HD screen? That is pretty bad considering the frame rate isn't consistent, even when everything is set to run at 720p on a basic HD ready display.




    Neither does GT6, nor GT5 before it. As the frame rates fluctuate on a constant basis, even when rain and night racing isn't even a factor.

    He asked, as if the game he was comparing it to achieves the things he asked for. He also asked for a game showing features he was talking about(weather), not technical prowess.

    Oh the irony here :lol:

    If you're going to resort to name-calling, you'll find your time here short.

    You're asking for something GT itself doesn't achieve. If you want to continue this obvious GT vs FM discussion, take it to the appropriate thread.

    It is very normal that with all that partycicle effects to stay at stable 60 fps. Remember that ps3 have only 256 mb
    at Imarobot i just asked to bring me a game with the same features and he bring me a game that just doesnt have at all 1440x1080p and doesnt reach 60fps and dynamic lights.

    I don't think this isn't dynamic

    Whatever you asked for doesn't matter, because you're already ignoring the fact that GT can not achieve the things you asked for. I can show you a potato and it'll be as relevant to this conversation as anything else.

    I'll one up you; Show me a game that achieves 1440x1080p AND 60fps with these features, on any console to date.

    What?... He said find him a game that runs at 1440x1080 at 60fps using only 256mb of RAM using dynamic lighting. (it's all there, go check!)

    I just found it funny you offered up that, which bares no relevance to what he asked for. The smug tone in your post is what made me laugh the most. :lol:

    Whether GT achieves all this is another question. A question I'll leave to you guys to slog out. :tup:

    I asked him to bring me a game with 1440x1080. I don't think pgr4 has that resolution and framerate

    GT does run with 1440x1080p and 60fps

    Okay, let's come at this from a different perspective:

    Does any of this have anything to do with Forza Motorsport 5? No. Does it even have anything to do with Forza Motorsport at all? No.

    It ends. Now.

    Those GT6 pics are in-game, I took them using CFW. You can even see the dithering on the vegetation.

    EDIT - just read Terronium's post.

    Hey, you're right, as usual. You win the popularity contest yet again. Please note how many times "you" is used in your response. I'm a little tired of the finger-pointing and nitpicking every little thing I say and how you're holding me accountable, so to speak.

    I am certainly not accountable to anyone here, neither do I owe anyone any explanation at all. Good luck digesting that.

    Cheers.

    Name-calling? Where? Can you point out?

    Precisely... precisely. Sheesh, some people!

    Except for the fact that you do if you're going to make such claims. The odd thing I'm having trouble wrapping my head around is, is that I'm having a conversation with you so why wouldn't I point you out directly?

    Popularity contest? I see how you're approaching things now.

    Which part of you initiated the debate don't you understand? You're making out that people are picking on you and they aren't.

    It's probably best to not bring things up if you don't want to have to prove your point!


    I get the feeling that this thread was created with gt6's lighting in mind. I think it's less "forza 5 has woeful lighting", and more "gt6 just has exceptional lighting" as I definitely wouldn't say fm5's lighting is bad. It's the best of the fm series.

    It looks like they're toning that down in fm6.

    also, I don't remember the lighting looking this good at long beach in fm5

    The only thing wrong with the lighting on Long Beach was that it was just too damn bright :lol: You can manage to find that spot in the settings for good photos, but it was hard.

    What part of ending this conversation, one that has nothing to do with the topic, didn't you understand the first time I said it?

    Hmm, I should have read the forum rules better then at the time I registered; don't really recall anywhere I HAVE to prove my point if others disagree with it or find it questionable.

    FM5's lighting is the best of the series.. though.. scroll down to my second response..

    I'm impressed..I hope that isn't photo-mode lighting in action and the game's actual lighting. It definitely looks toned down to achieve a more photo-realistic look. Love it. Can't wait to take FM6 for a spin.

    You have to provide evidence for a claim if you are going to say it as a fact. Not just because someone disagrees with you. If you don't want people to question your points then stop stirring the pot.

    I'm also wondering this. When done in the past, have the photo's been sourced as photomode or actual in-game visuals?

    Is there a difference between photo mode and gameplay? I haven't noticed.

    You can change the brightness, contrast and exposure in photomode, so you can sort of make the lighting what you want. To a point anyway.

    Oh right, so it's more about how the photo can be adjusted to look better.
