I can remember when Forza 3 came out and there was this really annoying weird bug where when following AI cars the shadow under them kept flickering on and off, after a while it really could give you a headache and ruined any immersion...

Over on the official FM forum someone mentioned it in a thread that they started... what followed was debate, heated debate, some abuse and some toys out of the pram... eventually the majority (fanboys) decided by all agreeing and derailing any further debate, that in fact Turn 10 had put this in on purpose as it was a device to tell you how much slipstream you were getting :confused:........ happy with this the vocal majority hppily went on convinced that this headache inducing flickering of shadows was intended and 'useful'.......

The moral of the story?

Suffice to say eventually Turn 10 guy comes on and goes "Guys thanks for the heads up on this........its a bug it is getting patched" ;)

Be aware........don't blindly defend everything as the Devs might just be needing the simple heads up.......

great game SMS (ps i still love Shift 2, flawed gem that once you get to grips with it is awesome....)

Point taken, thread closed to make sure the forum doesn't clog up with side-discussions. Sorry about that.
