Go all out for racing fun
In Forza Horizon 4, don't let problems and other mistakes slow you down. If you want to go all out again, we can provide you with various solutions to help you restart your PC and Xbox One games.
In video games such as Forza Horizon 4 you always want to go out as soon as possible. On and off, even in the worst case, crashes are annoying. To determine what is causing this type of issue, first check if the Forza Horizon 4 server is also easily accessible.
If it's not a server cause, you might find the problem in the list below. To make it easy for you to fix right away, we have written a suitable solution.
"FH301" error message
The above error message appears when trying to play.
The developer recommends updating your graphics driver. This is usually enough to prevent this error in the future.
Hoarse when playing
During playback, you will hear hoarse and creak sounds.
Check your audio settings. If you set up 24-bit and 44,100 Hz here, that's totally the problem. As the developer said, the pop sound may only come from this information. So, in Settings under System, then change Device Properties under Sound. You can now set the Standard Format to 16-bit (48,000 Hz) or 24-bit (96,000 Hz) under Extended. In order to apply these settings at the same time, you should restart the game.
Error messages "FH101", "FH201", "FH202", "FH203", "FH204", "FH401", "FH501"
When you try to play, one of the above error messages appears.
All these error messages are related to the unnecessary system requirements of your PC. In this case, you must upgrade your computer with other components to the value specified by the manufacturer, or run on a more powerful computer.
The keyboard layout is gone
You created your own keyboard profile, but even if you save it, it disappears from the game.
The developer reported this as a bug. You are already looking for a solution. Maybe your problem is that you don't have the latest content updates. You can then resolve this issue by downloading the latest version of Forza Horizon 4.
Black graphics in the game
In your game, some graphics suddenly appear black.
This error is related to your MSAA settings change (multi-sample antialiasing). This is anti-aliasing in the graphics settings. However, this issue can be resolved in seconds. Just restart the game for the changed MSAA settings to actually take effect in the game. So the black graphic should disappear. If you haven't downloaded the latest Forza Horizon 4 update, you may also need to download it.
In your game, the sound suddenly stops for a few seconds or more.
In the official support forum, the developer informed that this was a mistake. This issue is currently resolved, but there are a few ways you can try to fix sound errors beforehand. Download the latest update of the audio driver and change the surround sound in the game settings and see if the sound works again. It also helps you set the speaker output to 7.1.
FPS drops and stutters during introductory journey
During the introductory journey, Forza Horizon 4 didn't run smoothly.
Then your computer may not have the necessary system requirements. These twitches occur especially often if your PC does not have enough RAM. Then, you either have to manually expand the working memory (by installing a new memory module), clear the working memory, or (if possible) play Forza Horizon 4 on a more powerful PC.
Connection issues / unable to play online
You ca n’t use online features or keep getting connection errors and interruptions.
This issue may be caused by the server status of Forza Horizon 4, or it should be attributed to your Internet connection. In the first case, you have to wait for good or bad until the server is active again. In the latter case, we recommend that you check your Internet settings. So if you change the connection (for example, via a network cable) or temporarily disable the firewall, it can help. As a trial, you can also try restarting your gaming device.
Keep in mind that the list is not exhaustive, but we will try to add new issues as soon as possible. Help us and write down in the comments the errors you found when playing on Xbox One or PC.
Whether it's about technology or some modes (such as the "Battle Royale" mode in Forza Horizon 4), we will appreciate every hint.
