Anyone else having an issue where the Microsoft website is saying that I need to upgrade to windows 10 even though I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 with all the updates? It won't let me download the game.

It's a registered version. When I check the about Windows box, it doesn't say version 1511 though. Says 'Version 10.0 build 10240' . There are no updates available if I have Windows check. How do I get it to 1511?

10240 is the July 2015 build. 10586 (1511) is the current one.


If you run Windows Update and it doesn't offer to download it, go to C:\ and see if you have a Windows.Old folder, if you do, just rename it to anything else. Also go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete everything in there. Reboot, and run Windows Update again, it should then download the November build (around 3GB)

I've been able to get away with 60FPS @ 1440p with the following

Windows Insider Preview 14328
AMD 290x w/ 16.4.2 driver
16GB RAM
i5-3570k

I've got most of it set to Ultra.

Interesting, I thought they weren't going to support steering wheels, but I guess they've changed their mind:

Why does the game need so much RAM? I can understand memory requirement on gpu for 4k but need 16gb just for the game? I was playing this with r9 390 and 8gb ram on ultra 1080p just fine

Btw game wont launch on older amd drivers. I was on 16.1 and it wouldnt launch unless you force it by holding page up and click quit when the error message pops up. I updated to 16.5 amd driver released yesterday and was able to load the game fine then.
