Forza Horizon 2 XE (X-tended Edition) for 360 mod

Full disclosure, this is a repost of my topic over at—-jtag-rgh-only.1258210/ -- I made the mod years ago, but as fellow car lovers I thought anyone who understands how to install this on a 360 might enjoy it. If this post needs tweaked/removed for rules' sake please feel free to let me know, but I'm assuming this is similar to some of the GT WIP mods out there. This is not an XDELTA patch, but it also cannot be run without the main game already installed.

It probably goes without saying that you need a modified console (JTAG or RGH) to run this. Don't be a pirate if you have one of these. The game is super cheap in any used game store.

FUN FACT: This, along with other gaming stuff in my portfolio, got me a developer job (not gaming, sadly).


  • All cars from Forza Horizon 1 and 2, including DLC and traffic cars playable, over 100 new cars in total. Full list HERE.
  • Traffic cars with upgrades (engine, drivetrain, some other upgrades)
  • 40+ wheels from Forza Horizon 1, all manufacturer wheels can be purchased
  • Payout for each race increased by 1.4-2.0 (depending on the event)
  • 2010 BMW M3 GTS engine sound is quiet. It had no engine sound before, so it got an engine swap. Will fix in a future release
  • Traffic cars have no interiors, and they don't have nice icons in the menus

To install you need to have the game already extracted to your Xbox 360 hard drive. Running it in a Games on Demand container or from a disc will *NOT* work. After that just use Xbox Neighborhood or your favorite FTP program to transfer these files, overwriting any that it prompts you for.


There are two new cars, the 2010 BMW M3 GTS Horizon Black Edition (the NULL car, but with updates to make it a "real" car, and MINE's Nissan Skyline R32. The texture for the Skyline was (almost) a perfect fit, so I added it. The rear spoiler is a little messed up because the texture mapping changed between games, but the rest is fine. You'll be able to purchase stock rims in the next version.

Several cars have been updated. If you own any of these cars AND you don't want to start a new game you will have to sell them before you install version 1.1. You can then buy those cars again. Here's a list of cars that have been updated with changes that will require you to sell them before installing the mod.

And here is the 1.2 patch post. It didn't work right for a lot of people, but some people had luck. I've left the 1.3 patch notes even though I quit working on this long ago. Thought it might be fun to see the plans I had.


  • Fast & Furious cars, including some upgrades and the ability to paint the cars
  • "Collector's Edition" Skyline R34: MINE's, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Rockstar, and other paintjobs
  • BETA Skyline R34 Race Car: Calsonic, Pennzoil, Pennzoil/Zexel, Arta, Falken and Castrol paintjobs. The body has not been widened in a hex editor, so the tires stick out.
  • Z/28 stripes for 1969 Camaro
If there's something I promised that you don't yet see, don't worry. I have a lot of other things I'm working on that aren't included in this version.

  • Correct icons for each car in the Autoshow (aside from traffic cars). The Fast & Furious cars currently don't have icons, and many of the new cars use FH1 or FM4 icons which look different from the FH2 icons. This is an easy thing to do, but is a bit of a slow process due to how many need to be done.
  • A second race car, voted on by the community. Choices are the Honda NSX (JGTC), Toyota Supra (JGTC), 2012 Chevy Camaro (Trans Am series), BMW M3 GTR and the Ferrari F430 GT
  • Three more "Collector's Edition" cars, as well as adjustments to current ones. Current ones to be updated are the 2012 Challenger, the 2012 Charger, the Ford SVT Raptor and the Skyline R32. New Collector's Edition cars include the Mercedes SLS AMG, GMC Vandura, 2012 Chevy Camara and the Lamborghini Aventador

Hey, I've only just happened across this and I was fairly impressed by the fact that you have liveries linked to manufacturer colours. Do you mind sharing how that's possible, and if it's possible in FM4/FH1?

EDIT: Disregard this, figured it out now.

Nothing from scratch unfortunately. The two Horizon games can share models between them, but they aren't compatible with any of the Motorsport games, and none of the Motorsport games are compatible with each other.
bro this is amazing! An impressive job, it's a pity that you left this mod aside. It would be incredible to see version 1.3 with no more content, simply with the fixed icons. I hope at some point you can finish it. The world needs more people like you!

Not a bad Mod, I admire the effort.

Any chance of this coming to the Xbox One version in a few years?
Unfortunately not - There's no way to mod on Xbox One and later.

Also as a bit of cross-promotion I've released the FH1 version of this mod. Also Forza runs pretty well on PC if you've got a decent one and use the Xenia-Canary emulator, so this is no longer a 360-only mod.
